Wordle #164 – The Cheat

Those who hold a pen
Can shape a world

A runaway
In a strawberry field
Or a cluster of aging trees

They’ll cheat destiny
To craft the perfect world
A perfect lie
For you

They’ll capture you,
With just the lightest touch
Or from the widest range

Swivel round
Dear friend
Before it is too late

Lest I find you
Euchred
And broken
Beyond belief

How can’t you see them?

The Mythomane
As they twist and hold
Your soul


Written for this week’s Wordle over at MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie. An interesting bunch of words this week but I am pretty proud that I managed to use them all.

Saturday Mix – You are my Sunshine

— You are my sunshine.
Burning me away

Brightest thing
Loudest here

All consuming
Never fading

Who are you
Really?

— You are my sunshine.

— You-

— Me-

— I am that sunshine.
Burning me away

Wordle #147 – Flashover

IMG_0910

Latch the door
My friend
Your heart
It will be mine

Let me take you in my arms
And hold you tight

Your simple iridescence
Enchants me
Heart and soul

So…

Follow my lead now
Take one step back
Forward the next

Let passion lead the way
Inseperable we spin
To make our own ballet

Legs, arms, chests
We move as one
Our perfect harmony

Relieve yourself of fear
Leave the media behind
It’s just us now

We levitate, and
Through heat and heart
It carries us away

Written for this weeks Wordle on MindLoveMisery’s Menagery! I really loved the words this week 🙂 This one is for my favourite fictional couple at the moment, Magnus and Alec from the show Shadowhunters.

Heeding Haiku with Chèvrefeuille – Choice

The truth itself
Sits within the lie
Snugly waiting.

But…

Here-
Is it still a lie?

They know not you keep it
Save, warm, hidden.
Still
Even you don’t know
Not yet.

Here-
You’re lying to yourself?

Safe, warm, hidden
This helps none.

Not even you
And your secluded self
Your locked up heart.

Here-
Is it still a lie?

Protected
Or protecting?
Saving self
Or saving them?

So, now my dear friend
Speak your truths or spill your lies?
Waiting, all my heart

Written for this weeks Haiku prompt over at MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie 🙂 This week it is a Haibun: prose mixed with Haiku. My prose turned out more in the rhythms of poetry…but I am happy with it all the same

Wordle #145 – Oh, Idle Soul

Oh, idle soul
Beware.
Your filter is corrupt,
Beyond those stewing thoughts,
An ugly truth does wait.

Oh, idle soul
Reach out.
Don’t cringe away now,
Your jailer’s gone for good,
To Emerald City, far.

Oh, idle soul
Away.
That ledge of yours,
Exotic in appearance,
But a crescent moon beneath

Oh, idle soul
Look far.
Your longanimity rewarded,
In the purest of angelic noise,
The perfect afflatus, for you.

Oh, idle soul.
You idle soul
Beware.

Written for this weeks Wordle on MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie 🙂 It is a little late, and the first one I’ve written in quite a while, but I’m getting my creative juices back and this felt like a good place to start!

Wordle #79 – Why so Blue?

week-79

You sit on the embankment
Eyes of blue stare out
Waiting for your cynosure

Grains of sand
In their rough caress
They rub your fingers raw

Your every sinew
Longs for a caring touch

But none prevails

Not from the cold ocean wind, nor
From the lady of the pelagic

A desire so organic
It’s left you rejected

A once shining spoon, now
Rusting on the waters edge

Much worse than salt in the wound.
