Wake me

Inspiration Call - Creative Talents Unleashed 8
© http://www.artparasites.com

Wake me
Let my skin radiate with your every single touch
That the stars shining above would shy away from my iridescence
And the moon—grand and dazzling— would smile at us
Make my thoughts run wild as I curl inside your arms
Dreaming, wishing, and hoping that forever it will be you and I
Let me fill my head with stories and memories of us
Wake me
Let my smile reach from ear to ear as I wake up by your side
Staring at those enticing deep brown eyes, breaking through my senses
I would love spending my every waking day with you
Let me greet the world with love, hope, full of faith and see the beauty
Even in very little things; make me believe that goodness still exist
Allow me to believe that I am strong, smart, and beautiful
And when I have risen from the ashes like a phoenix
And have danced round the fire like a moth
Let me thank you for waking me.
Thank you for waking
The beauty inside
Of me.

Bluer than blue

Day9

Ours was not a wintry weather
A rosebud wrapped in cold, white plague
Nor a walk on a frozen surface
A shiver under sheets of ice and sleet
No, it wasn’t a string of pretense
A game of bleak charade and deceit
We didn’t die in isolation either
Or froze in ennui and dismay

On a cold, white snow we were burning
On a cold, white snow we’re ablaze
Swathed in the warmth of the winter sun
It was a dance round a cold blazing flame
No, ours was not a wintry weather
It was a stride under cerulean skies
Amid the bleached trees and naked frames
Our fire glows, bluer than blue


Our Writing 201 has already come to an end. It was an immensely stimulating two weeks of excellently curated poetry workshop and it was such a pleasure meeting different people of brilliant minds. I’ll be definitely looking forward to our next course. Now, for a very late submission, here’s my take on our Day 9 task. 🙂

Prompt: Cold
Form: Concrete Poetry
Device: Anaphora

Flavor of my days

Day8

Sweet—
Your soft, gentle kisses on a bright, early morn
The wrap of your arms ‘round my waist when I pulled  you down for a cuddle
The warmth of your breath on my nape sending shivers along my spine
Your stare screaming of sweetness as I look at you in the eye
Bitter—
Your voice with a tang of anger on the night of our fight
The roughness of your touch as you pulled me into our couch
The cold silence between us with nothing but the ceiling and walls
Your stare piercing through my beating heart before you walked out of the door
Sweet—
The flowers and chocolates and teddy bear and the note outside my door
Saying you’re sorry and how you hold me dear; that last night you we’re a fool
The bacon and egg for our morning meal atop the table for two
And a cup of coffee with a heart on it, your way of saying ‘I love you so’
Bitter—
The long stretch of time as I wait for you on our table for two
My restless heart getting edgy as the clock strikes noon
The knock on our door by an officer saying how in a car crash, I lost you
The deafening sound of my anguish as I melt down the cold, hard floor

Bland—
The recent taste of my every day since the day that I’ve lost you
A brand new flavor to my day by day, in things that I say or do
With you my days were extra—extra bitter, extra sweet, or a mix of both
But now, without you they’re dull, weak, and tasteless; dismal and cruel.


Day 8 in Writing 201: Today is a day of melancholy, loss and, longing. I had this wild imagination that maybe in a parallel world, a version of me had gone through a tough time and lost the love of her life. (I know, cruel!) But anyway, this is her story and this is for her lost love.

Prompt: Flavor
Form: Elegy
Device: Enumeratio

Forlorn Nights

Day7

She walked to the door of emptiness
Her spirit is weary and tired
Looking through the side of her windowpane
She reckoned to call it a night
Her home is thousands of miles away
How she misses their kisses and smile
But she carries on and lives day by day
Making each day worth her while
She lives with a pair of zombies
And a neighborhood of varied worlds
A pair—
Who sleeps in her early morn
But wakes by the time she snooze
Neighbors—
Breathing with nameless faces
As she watched them come and go
And back at the windowpane, her eyes closed,
When the sun shines in the morrow
She vowed,
She’ll start anew.


I live oceans away from home, amidst the concrete jungle and city lights. But no matter how lively this city may be, I still crave for those peaceful nights back at home. This is the story of my life, oh well, the story of most of my nights. Here’s for Day 7 Writing 201 task. 🙂

Prompt: Neighborhood
Form: Ballad
Device: Assonance

Beautiful Mess

Day6


Our Day 6 in Writing 201 is all about Faces, Found Poetry, Chiasmus. I’ve written a lot about faces yet it’s my first time to do a found poetry and chiasmus. I intended to cut pieces from old magazines to make it look arty but I got swamped at work and had no time. Still, all ends well– thanks to Shakespeare and Hardy for letting me borrow their words. These poetry sages never did fail to amaze me. 🙂

Prompt: Faces
Form: Found Poetry
Device: Chiasmus

The sun will soon rest


Here’s a bit of fun for Creative Talents Unleashed prompt.

If

If the Earth is heaven and tears
Are glee, would you still fear?
If past is present and bad
Is good and those we call ‘sad’
Cease to exist, would things be clear?
If bland is sweet and beauty
Is flawed and I am you as you are me
Would it truly be fair?
Would it end despair?
Would we finally live in peace and serenity?


Our Writing 201 Day 4 assignment brought me back to my aimless musing of ‘what ifs’. But personally, I think perfection is a matter of POV– and so does imperfection.  Now, for the late entry, here’s my take. 🙂

Prompt: Imperfect
Form: Limerick
Device: Enjambment

Burning Fire

Today I saw a maiden—her skin so fair and long blond hair scream of a youthful beauty; those rosy lips and blushing cheeks best the darling buds of May. But if I have to say what I truly see, it’s beyond a splendor that declines. For I have seen the burning fire boundless by death or time. I see her wound that left a scar and forever will leave its mark. I hear the sound of shattered glass ringing in my ears. And how her touch is a warm proof of how she fought the pain she bears inside. Today I saw a maiden—she prayed that I, too, be fearless and will never ever hide.


I love reading and listening to prose and spoken poetry though I’m not really good at both. So here goes my attempt to prose poetry with a blend of internal rhyme for our Writing 201 Day 3 assignment. 🙂

Prompt: Skin
Form: Prose Poetry
Device: Internal Rhyme

The Gift

unnamed (1)

Many years have passed since I left,

In search for a certain gift
As worthy as one’s tears of joy
As prized as one’s last breath

Only to find it in a woman,

An image of love in every inch
Her beauty is eternal like an old photograph
Her heart is pure like a unicorn’s, and

Many years have passed since I found,

The world’s most cherished gift
Unparalleled, priceless, and singular
A treasure. A joy. And I call her ‘Mom’


Just recently, my mom celebrated her birthday and I can’t help but think of her with today’s prompt. She’s always been a gift to me and to our family, well, all moms are.

So here goes my Day 2 entry. A poetry sashimi to all moms out there! 🙂 🙂

Prompt: Gift
Form: Acrostic
Device: Simile
