Conceiving Poetry

Come read the works of a poet I recently found. Enjoy!

The Poetic Elixir


You are the di(sea)se of the sea
an epidemic ruining my canvas body
a shadow swallowing the light of my eyes
I became prey to your grey nails,
scratching mulberries on your body,
as you continue to bury weeds with incisors,
bursting lesions of yester lust,
your turmeric hands soothe clots
and I bath in sunflower kisses,
you are predator of nocturnal reverie,
lighting wine lamps in broken glasses,
I synchronise words of my limb,
to the music of your arms,
chipped nails marks and stains,
I break tunes like metals balls,
jingling in my womb,
I take your scars, wounds and bruises
on my body as words,
pile them up in stanzas,
cover them with metaphors,
soak them in feelings,
cleave into early embryonic desires,
before conceiving a poetry.

cactus-84709_640Good Morning to all my Fellow Bloggers, Readers and Followers,

I have some exciting news — one of my stories has been chosen to be in the following Anthology published by Z Publishing! I am so thrilled and honored to be a part of this book. To see my words published in yet another book means the world to me. My deepest gratitude to all of you who offer me encouragement and inspiration every day.
