Softly

Stepping into my heart
Softly scaling the boundaries
Finding our way together.


Flashback Friday and it is Valentine’s Week! This is one of the posts from my daily posting challenge last year on Instagram. Head on over there to read some more fresh pieces that I post almost daily. My account is sv__poetry.

Lotus

A rose for my love.
That’s what I grew up believing
Just an enigma
It’s red, it’s delicate like a dove
And, I accepted it without knowing.

But since I’d met you
The definitions faded away
I learned that
A lotus lasts for a thousand years
A rose lasts for a day.

You were here, and without any fear,
you decided to stay.
I knew I’d found my lotus
The promised forever was near
I knew we’d bloom together,
come December or May.

Amongst the gunpowder and debris,
She looks at the bloody bodies, now covered,

Flashback Friday: Desolate

Languished innards
A rage gains traction.

Putrid with power
Of your behemoth play.

Single swift motion
But a slash and a burn.

One soul surrendered
Broken, two bodies lay.


This was a poem about how heartbreak leaves behind two bodies. Some of my poetry is more profound between the lines than with the words. This is one of them and was posted on the blog on May 29, last year. With the Flashback Friday series, I have been posting some poems and articles I wrote when I didn’t have as many followers so more people can see it now and share their views.
