Stygian Sleep

0  
by themonochromereaper / / Poetry
As the clock ticks Past midnight last night, I slowly crept under the duvet wishing It was your arms that will hold me tight… I rested my head on my fluffy pillow As if it was your chest, I felt safe – no longer restless. All of a sudden, I slowly drifted into a Stygian sleep. I wasn’t writhing in bed; Not making a single sound Or even moving an inch. I was splayed like corpse Until the ray of light caressed my skin, Beckoning me to rise ... Read More

Nomad

If a day comes That our love is tested By the searing rays Of the sun; Like a Nomad in the desert, I will persist, I’ll never give up on you Hon. I will keep on searching For droplets of reasons And rivulets of ways To strengthen our bond.

In the changing of seasons, Love either dwindles Or gets stronger. For there will be days You will cross the still waters Then suddenly face a raging storm. Sometimes you will have To walk barefoot Under the scorching Heat of the sun And little by little get dehydrated, Thirsty for one’s affection And warmth. But if you’re with me, Hon, I know love will always triumph. Since even the long distance Between us, didn’t keep us apart.

Bliss

Your saccharine sweetness, Devotion and attentiveness Gets me druggedly drunk in love. Like a vise that I can’t do without, I need to speak with you daily. Today is my natal day Where I received the greatest gift. It is not the cake, Flowers nor chocolates. Your existence and unwavering fierce love Eclipses all the gifts and greetings I received today. Thank you for loving me Even if I was born More than a decade late.

Humane

Loving you Was the “one step” I needed to take Towards becoming humane, To feel what it’s like to love again Despite living in this savage garden. Due to the betrayals of other sapiens, Albeit, it turned my heart into stone – numb, My responses heightened. I still thrived for I possessed An intuitive mind That’s an accurate judge of character And undaunted when attacked. You made me remember How it’s like to be humane, How it feels to love and be loved again.

Unlike any other birds, You never flap your wings. You soar high, up in the skies. Reaching for your dreams, Aiming to leave a legacy behind Afore you catch your last breath and die. You, who have a clear vision of the future; Are fearless, tenacious, and an achiever. You’re such a great problem solver Unlike the pigeons who complain When they suffer. I can only support you from the sidelines In all your endeavors Hon. I won’t keep you in a gilded caged Because after all, you ... Read More
