Hand In Hand

Tens of thousands huddled and scuttled

A post-concert human bloodbath

Hand in hand I noticed them coupled

As they boldly crossed my path

Straight-backed and with heads held high

They forged through the clustered crowd

A confident love that lit up the sky

Clutched tight like they were proud

As they faded into night, I grew sad

As if Life made this for my eyes only

I’ve never wanted anything so bad

And I’ve never felt so lonely

Do you remember the tales told to you as a child by your elders? Perhaps fables or mythology native to your region or country of origin? Take fragments of those stories to incorporate into an updated or new story (or poem!) of your own. Tag me, if you wish. #clevermonkeytales

The Fall of Icarus

Her heart made of glass

My wings made of wax

I tried to fly

Tried to fly near her

Her face so warm

Her place so far

Away from mine

Yet still I tried to reach her

They say

The higher the climb

The higher the fall

And I fell for love

And that's the highest fall of all

Heart strings

Broken hopes

And melted wings

They fell from above

And washed away with the sea

And sometimes she'd shine

And sometimes she'd hide

Away from me

Yet still I tried to reach her

But wings made of wax

Weren't made to last

So here I'll stay

Here I'll stay beneath her

They say

The higher the climb

The higher the fall

And I fell for love

And that's the highest fall of all

Heart strings

Broken hopes

And melted wings

They fell from above

And washed away with the sea

And sometimes she shines

And sometimes she hides

So here I'll lie

Beneath the sea

Beneath the sea

Love is always never enough.

I have given it the best I can.

The way I know how.

I thought that as long as I give love truly, wholeheartedly then it would be all that it takes to make you better, to make me better. But I was wrong.

Love was never the answer.

Love is a bully. It pushes you to give

and give until there's nothing left of you.Why do we love then when the only thing it gives back are broken souls and tears —hurts that never heal? We are all damned and death is the only thing waiting for us in the end.

What's wrong with love?

What's wrong with loving?

Love be kind, please be kind.

The walls of

This

Space

Are heaving

With emotion

They rise

And

They

Fall

To the rhythm

Of

You.

The way

Your name

Rolled off

My tongue

Last

Winter.

Tiny angels

Diving

Into

Somersaults

And spinning.

But my tears

Fall

Too.

And through

The

Fall

They--

Just as fast--

Beat my words

To the floor

In

A

Race.

They crystallize

And shatter

Against

This bowl

Because sorrow

Sinks

Heavy

In an aquarium

Of salt.

Where hope

Is

Blurry.

When the water

Ripples.

Happy Prose Birthday!

March 3, 2016 was my first ever post here on Prose. I was lost without a home for my writing when I found Prose. I'm a week late in greeting but "Happy Birthday to me! " Thank you prose for the opportunity to go on writing. Thank you for allowing me to be part of this awesome place where beautiful souls wander to inspire and motivate. Thanks to all you wonderful humans of Prose. Know that each heart, comment, or reprose you make are all appreciated sincerely. You are all  beautiful, raw, broken, vulnerable, sharp, witty; each one unique and very talented.  Since it's my Prose birthday, my wish is to share more years of reading and writing with you guys. May our ink never run out and hope that you would refill mine in times when my pen refuses to write. I scrolled back to find my very first post and would like to share it with you again. Much ❤! Xo

Once

One look

One smile

One touch

One promise

Only once

To know

That my eyes have seen

That my lips have tasted

That my hands have held

That my heart has vowed

To see only you

To kiss only you

To touch only you

To love only you

One life to find

My one and only

Once

In a lifetime love

Inverted

A bow made of colors

A rainbow

Carried by the drops of rain

Displayed across the sky

Inverted

A bow made of comfort

A smile

Carries the drops of tears

Displayed on a face

If a smile would do

Let me smile for you.

ECHOES

He takes her to meet some friends;

Monet, Renoir, Degas, Picasso, Warhol

They look on as she turns to bury

her face in the crook of his neck

She breathes him in

as history exhales its echoes

through the Ivy League halls

// just one night

How about we just pretend

we're in love for one night.

Actually, not pretend.

Let's believe it.

Let's believe that

we are in love

for one night,

and then

let's never speak of it again.

Champion II

The shadows cloaked

your buttermilk armour 

and you never uttered

a single complaint

Now you are both

sun-god

and the bedrock

to a world you keep

aloft and turning

Do not force

a brilliance

on days when there

is none to spare

Do not feel 

you must carry

more than the just 

weight upon your

diminutive

sweet-fierce shoulders
