~::~ Forever is Mythical ~::~

forever_is_over_by_destinyblue-d6yel96

In a world of plastic, wireless

Everything brief & temporal

Where marriages aren’t timeless

Forever seems so mythical

 

Friend requests sent, soon unfriended

Even friendships ephemeral

Exchanges lost in timeline threads

Forever seems so mythical

 

Virtual love virtual war

Relationships inflexible

Welcome to our new world, bizarre

Forever seems so mythical

 

In a world of plastic, wireless

Forever seems so mythical

Thorns

Lashing out

Gnawing through my veins

Throbbing pain coursing through flesh

Addicting absorbed it spreads

It wasn’t thorns or

Pincers but

Drugs

~::~ Piece Of Me ~::~

last_piece_by_destinyblue-d4v1ohr

I’m searching for a part of me

A part that’s precious and esteemed

It’s been lost for eternity

I search but it was unredeemed

                A precious part of me it seemed

                Yet unfound for infinity

I have combed for it high & low

Through the various realms of earth

Hidden mocking, it lay furlough

Concealed it stayed, content and mirth

                Through all realms I tried to unearth

                The mocking part veiled & stowed

Clandestine union it would be

The day I find that missing piece

Atlast I’d be complete & free

All fears and anxieties would cease

                Contentment dwells & heart at peace

                When the missing piece completes me

~::~ Entombed Symphony ~::~

inspiration_by_destinyblue-d6thpif

Kidnapped, captured, stuck in a box shaped room

Untouched, nurtured, locked up with no windows

With nothing to do I thought this was doom

 

Creeping sun rays form a musical note

Music becomes my eternal saviour

 

Dusk brings cacophony of crickets’ vroom

Stillness rings in the air, when zephyr blows

Moonlight streams through the cracks like misty spume

 

In peace, I sit with words swarming in quotes

Silence for companion and muse – nature

 

Sleep eludes me; I’m lost in my own gloom

On brink of sanity, hum myself slow

Dawn carries dewdrops & musky perfume

 

Struggling in cold I clutch on to my coat

Awaiting for strong sun to shine later

 

It feels like spring, maybe flowers abloom

Wafting scents of honeysuckle and rose

Eyes crave to lay sight on colourful plumes

 

Tears stream down, a stifled scream in my throat

Pondering my fate, recite my prayer

 

With renewed faith, compositions consume

Music uplifts, whilst in agony’s throes

Until destiny strikes, I stay entombed

 

Seasons changed, but my habitat resume

Music strengthens, amidst turmoil and woes

Kidnapped, captured, stuck in a box shaped room

Until fate decides, I remain entombed

~::~ Wintry Woes ~::~

impatience_by_destinyblue-d8muebh

Hot

Coffee

Warming me

Cheering me up

On cold wintry day

Harsh breeze grazes my neck

Making me squirm & search warmth

In depths of scalding caffeine

Scattered across orange horizon

Are wispy clouds blocking a rising Sun
