helios of pain, Published at MasticadoresIndia

I am so pleased to announce that my poem, helios of pain, is now available at MasticadoresIndia. Thank you to Terveen Gill, and the team at MasticadoresIndia for their continued support, and for publishing this piece.

helios of pain

birds fly through the sky
as in my heart, our love always resides

flittering
and mistaking a beat or two
for a remedy made of oranges that are blue…

I would be honored if you would go here, and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!

sky blue

I see love in you, and the sky blue

wishing upon a falling star
true

I wonder

about nature
and the love living inside my mind

though, this time
I relegate love to another line

of hope, as it lingers in the air
like mist carrying the sun
within its moist, and ever so toiled

breath, I dare

to challenge the moon, breaking apart
my heart

none

can prepare me for the agony
of life’s darkness
to me, each morning renewed

with starkness, so

I run, and run, and run, and, then

Stop.

and, wait at the end of the sun
where arises something new

as I reach out my hand toward you

scent of jasmine

You.

It’s always been, given to me once
at the precipice of a love

filled with tales
grim
and others’ riding the backs of whales

I listen for you in the nightshade
of a heart asundered

by the mere mention of your name in pale
and indigo fibers

filled with stitched together riders

their hearts, gold through and through
just like the love I feel for you

A moment.

I pause to breathe
and exhale the scent of jasmine

realizing you’ve come to me in time

with the music I hear, for two, everytime to my heart
nearer, are

You.

guide unknown

painted hills and magenta skies
call to me

to see
all that I once believed

as lollipops arise in your eyes
a special place in my heart

they do reside

inside
the love that goes out with the tide

and mingles with the salt and stone
a guide unknown

to those that know, a place called home

iron leaves

guidance comes on the shoulders
of mountain tops

a reliance

on the love living inside my fingertips
short, and stout

they speak to me of dreams, unseen

a reality
forged from iron leaves
while the fragrance of love always makes me believe

in you, my love

Can you see me through the pain inside the loving breeze?

I can see you too.

it’s here, my love
where I will always wait for you
