Stale

It’s Friday and I should be excited

But I’m up early instead of being asleep

Under the covers of my blanket

Keeping warm from the cold rain

I’m up preparing breakfast

Drinking coffee

Eating stale crackers

To fill my belly.

The warmth of the coffee comforts me

And the staleness of the crackers is somehow welcoming

Showcase Your Affection

Bring forth your heart and lay it down in front of me

Show me charades of promises and tell me of dreams you have planned

Waltz around and parade your undying affection

While I read between the lines and see beyond the colors

Your mardis gras of facade I see right through

See, the grand gesture and parade is not what I want

The simplicity, the truth, was what I was after

And those two, you failed hard at

Drops

Rain drops

Tear drops

Dew drops

Droplets of happiness and sadness

Of pain and suffering

Let them fall, let them drop

To Be Tamed

They think she’s wild and needs to be tamed

So they all try to come with ropes, give her a name

The more they intimidate her, the more she fights it

The more they pressure her, the more she hates it

They misunderstand because they don’t want to understand

She doesn’t need to be tamed, she just need to be left as she is

Down

It’s been a long day

My energy is depleted

I don’t feel like moving

I just want to lie down

Rest and sleep

Feels

Happy,

Loved,

Excited,

Smiling,

Ecstatic,

Romantic,

The sun shines bright, it’s a great day!

I’m heading out for some time under the sun

Let’s go!

Ice Queen

She looks all sweet and kind

And though she may not read minds

She can tell the wrong sort

Even before they start to court.

They wonder why she’s single

Wonder why she wouldn’t mingle

They think of her as a mystery

And ask themselves if she’s in misery.

She’s calm unless provoked

She’s tough as nails when your feelings for her she’ll revoke

She won’t think twice to tell you otherwise

Boy, she will be your demise.

You can wait for as long as you want

Hoping you’ll change her mind, but you know you can’t

When she says “no”, that’s the final word

See, she battles dragons herself and doesn’t need you sword.

Was A Dream

He was a dream

He existed only in the land of dreams

He was there and will always be

Thor’s Day

Thunderstorm and lightning

Rain was raining very hard

Everyone was running and in a rush.
Then silence

A little calmness

I looked up and was in awe

I saw dark clouds but behind it, a glow!

Bluish violet it was

Something different 

Something unique
This I saw on Thor’s day

Words from a Little Person

Poets bleed from the heart and soul
