Hey Mom

I fixed my coffee, work was due again

Then I heard familiar steps coming down the stairs.

Dressed in her night gown,

She limped slowly down the stairs since her feet hurts again.

She smiles sleepily upon seeing me

I greet her good morning as I hug her tight.

She’s older and frailer now

So different from her younger years.

I ask, “Hey mom, want some coffee?”

As we slowly start our days.

And Then I Was Mum

I used to see beauty and color in everything

Used to hear music and the joy it brings

I talked about the lovely moon

The song of the stars and so on

.

But they shamed me

Shunned me

Condemned my poetic dreams

So all of a sudden and all at once, I became mum

.

Now in the silence, they reach out for me

But I am gone, nowhere to be

They will hear no more

I am mum from them, forever

Nothing To Say

If I could say something

I’d say it right now

But I prefer to keep quite

and stay mum

Noisy Silence

Today,

I will not say much

I will keep mum

keep silent

I will not nag,

not talk

or say a word

Today,

the world will fall silent

all that’s left to do…

is listen

Confused

one floor down, one step higher

close to being one and far away from fears

a galaxy so wide; lost in translation

the cosmic plays a major role

unnoticed, unsure, unclear; the frustration builds up

throat is sore; mouth is mum

tumbling down into the abyss

a black hole or the bottomless pit

eyes wide shut; deafening sound of uncertainty

up and about, one thing from the other

pictures of a perfect day covered by a dark cloud

time goes on reverse; backwards it goes

should have given it a second thought

but then again….

the leaves have turned from brown to green

darkened by the thunder-clouds

tulips sprung from the lily pads

to the left or to the right

running around in circles

the rain pours from the sunny sky

what day is it today?

 

unbolt me

the literary asylum
