Despite the changing of seasons, I seldom whither like other flowers. I am a Lily, remember? I stand tall and don’t bow down To just anyone. I am illumined by the glorious sun. I have bloomed finally, Discovering my innate qualities Sought and desired by plenty. Bask in my beauty all year round, Smell my potent fragrance, It will leave you spellbound. I value purity, piety, humility. I offer hope, faith, freedom, love And a promise of prosperity. Depending on how you treat me, My colors come ... Read More

Luxury

I never once thought That freeing my time to talk with you At night was a responsibility. For me, every second spent with you Feels like a luxury. It’s like visiting the spa to have the masseuse Massage the sore muscles on my back. Honey, when I talk to you You always hit the right spot.

Vulnerable

You taught me so much About vulnerability On how I can open up myself For the world to see The real me – genuine, Devoid of pretense, insincerity. Honey, you set me free.

Defied

According to studies, Humans have a strong scarcity bias. Unconsciously, we assume that things That are precious are scarce And things that are inferior are plenteous. But this is where I deviate, hon. For no matter how long We spent with each other, Whether too little or too much; My longing for you never subsides. It defies this very logic every time. I missed hearing your soothing voice The other night and all I want Is to be by your side.

Valley of Life

by themonochromereaper / / Poetry
As I trekked The lonely valley of life Amongst a crowd full Of faceless strangers, I felt cold and hollow within; Perpetually craving For someone’s warmth To prove that I’m still One with the living, I waited for the notable Soul that I’ve been yearning. One day our paths Crossed thru divine luck, You, a person belonging From a different dimension, But of the same flock Suddenly grabbed my hand. You kept it warm And kissed my woes goodbye. Oh, such a long wait it was But ... Read More

If we lived in the world Of Ice and Fire You’ll be my Targaryen And I your Stark. With your High Valyrian command, Dracarys – Dragonfire; Balerion unleashed his fire And melted the frost That guards my frigid heart, Awakening my inner desires. In the process you vanquished The White Walkers and the Wights, Keeping me safe throughout The incoming long winter nights. I can only marvel At your prominence from afar, My valiant King As I saw you with your Mighty dragon, Balerion Dancing in the ... Read More
