Be the Light
Seemingly surrounded
  by hearts tainted
with the darkest intentions,
  Do not give up hope,
Be the light;
for it will always emerge
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 7 10
Happy Together
the same sky expands
   around our globe,    
Almost close enough  
   for touching -
   One day, I know, will be    
      Happy together.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 6 7
Twin flame, beating heart,
  I'm waiting for our love
  to take us faraway;
Like the night
  hungry for the day
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 6 11
What Love Has Taught Us
they crashed over our heads
and pushed us apart;
  We were drowning in our love,
Practically gasping for breath
we tried to stay close;
    A first chance,
    a second, and a third,
Fighting against the truth;
    That you and me
    would never really
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 13 10
So easily
the memories slipped
through my armour -
   Your love,
   haunting me again
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 7 7
Fallen Feather
As Icarus
I fly, trying with all my might –
   Dreams are calling
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 13 8
they swim with celestial grace –
   Goldfish astronauts
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 9 4
HaikuWriMo - 2017
1 - Eagle Flight

Power, it pulses
in the beat of wings –
   Free spirit, fly
2 - Paeonia
Honoured beauty,
I bow to your grace –
   Love, a stranger
3 - Shooting Star
An icy heart,
how it warms in the sun –
   Everything falls
4 - Hope
Paper dreams,
they fly from human hands - 
    Cranes of hope
5 - Sol et Luna

Mirroring bright,
she captures his rays, bathing us
   in their shared light
6 - Astronauts
they swim with celestial grace –
   Goldfish astronauts
7 - Lady Winter
it slips into my veins –
   Lady Winter returns
8 - City Lights
Golden light
illuminates the city dark –
   Guide me home
9 - Rosa
Torn by love,
I will blossom again
   ever stronger
10 - Robin's Glory
Yellow rays of sun
light the earth with hope –
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 22 13
Music accompanies
the sounds of laughter and bells –
   Life is ever dancing.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 4 7
White Kisses
Tenderly, they drift,
White kisses caressing your face –
   Winter nostalgia overflows.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 5 5
  Bright silver
she glides, ever wooing
      with her charm.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 3 3
At Peace
  Her thoughts,
whispers falling one by one –
   Petals on the floor.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 9 9
Sun Embrace
Opening his arms
he invites you inside –
   We revel in warmth.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 4 10
Hidden Emotions
Why are you hiding
   behind that lie of silence?
This stillness is almost pungent,
leaving an acid taste of words
   wishing to be free
   from this cage you keep;
Please, just speak your mind,
   and give yourself the chance
      to write a new chapter.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 25 11
Music Magic
Music works its magic,
easing away thoughts of today
and I slip into another world;
   Transcending boundaries 
I simply exist in the moment.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 19 9
Beautiful Tomorrow
When will enough, be enough?
   When will we have reached our limits of "wanting"?
Will it really be when the oceans run dry,
   forests are burned to cinders
   and our earth draws her last breath?
Please, loves, let that not be our future.
Let us work towards a beautiful tomorrow.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 12 2

Random Favourites

i was kissed by color before i was born
i have a thing for butterflies -
           they were tattooed across my skin
           when i left my mother's womb.
they rest between my ribs
and the hollow of my throat
i was kissed with colors before i was born.
you were kissed by  h a p p i n e s s
and embraced by Eden -
so you could find refuge
in the color under my skin.
instead of a heart,
my blood beats with butterfly wings.
and they glow when i smile
or when my cheeks forget to blush.
in the place of the heart the butterflies took away.
so your smile-stained lips,
and my butterfly-tattooed skin
met under despair
when it was well
the brink.
and every time you tell
anyone that i'm yours
           the spaces between my ribs g l o w
           with the timid smiles

Christmas Hug by sandas04 Christmas Hug :iconsandas04:sandas04 271 31 Olga by Hart-Worx Olga :iconhart-worx:Hart-Worx 540 11 The Hiding Place by SachaKalis The Hiding Place :iconsachakalis:SachaKalis 4,337 145
"I am the boy who wants to love
your misshapen words,
your broken hearted pieces,
your ink split fingers.
I am the boy who wants to kiss
those scar tattooed arms,
that tear stained face
mend what has been broken.  
I am the boy who can
and will
make your heart
sing poetry again."
If only he would say it
like he had
:iconuntamedunwanted:UntamedUnwanted 413 52
The Girl He Loves
The girl he loves is midnight, like the blue of the sea cradled by the moonlight.
The girl he loves is verdant, the very green of the hill kissed by the summer delight.
The girl he loves is coral, as pink as the roses that grow in his mother's garden.
The girl he loves is crimson, red like the autumn leaves that lay abandoned.
The girl he loves I can never be
Because he's allergic to violets,
And violets are too much like me.
:iconuntamedunwanted:UntamedUnwanted 614 146
my fragmented bones are
chipping away and you stutter
that it wasn’t your fault
and i'm wondering if the
crystal frost on your eyelids has plagued
you; or
if the warm beating of your pulse has
disintegrated into the moon's
eternal curse of never letting
:icondelirious-eyes:delirious-eyes 20 10
Dark Autumn
Autumn darkness
Lovers walk hand in hand
:iconthird-person:Third-person 7 4
the artist
faint splashes of blue
she brushes her canvases
unaware of rain
:icondelirious-eyes:delirious-eyes 10 2
even the sensual moonchild has glistening slivers
under her fingers, and
craters engraved underneath her
her moonstone eyes are pale and
dissolved, tender and white as a freshly
sheared lamb.
although her limbs intoxicate her--
and her veins become surged with toxin
as she feels the unfortunate weight of a
newly-awakened treading tear.
:icondelirious-eyes:delirious-eyes 7 0
Train Wreck
are a
just waiting to
happen; but I’m on the edge of my seat.
:iconlion-essrampant:lion-essrampant 41 32
a sliver of the galaxy
to the star girl on the edge of my tongue:
your hair dye is fading; you are a patch work
quilt comprised of sleepless nights and
restless days.
the world around you romanticizes
the sadness that fills you like a broken well,
but you know they’re wrong --
having a darkness that threatens
to overwhelm you every single moment
isn’t glamorous at all.
you’ve started to trace your skin
with a knife again, itching to press
a little harder, to draw on your body
the only way you know how.
but you won’t.
because that will mean
that you’re just as far gone
as they think you are.
and there’s still a sliver inside of you
that doesn’t want to let go.
--the girl on the other side of your mirror
:iconlion-essrampant:lion-essrampant 57 80
lost memories between the sofa cushions
i found the lost boys under the sink again,
their eyes boring as dark as a stygian night.
black ink tallies were scrawled on their arms --
an imaginary clock ticking life away in place
of the years they weren’t growing.
they reach their hands out to me,
beckoning, whispering the mantra
“be our mother again, again, again...”
but it was your words that echoed in my mind:
even pixie dust isn’t strong enough
to help me fly anymore.
