Letting Go
As you stand
on the ledge between
  today and tomorrow,
Don’t fear the pull
    that’s asking you
to dive into the flow,
Like falling leaves of autumn,
    there’s no harm
    in letting go.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 15 4
A Small Revolt
they escape me,
  like fireflies dancing
  in the garden,
that, for a fleeting moment,
  touch my mind
and disappear without
  a second sight.
:iconlady-yume:Lady-Yume 15 6
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 11
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 7 11
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 14 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

Six Second Poem
"We're all the same," she said. "Friend, tell me," she asked, "how are we different?"
For six seconds I paused, then I said:
Some of us ..
love more than we hate,
laugh more than we cry,
work harder than we play, but
live before we die.
Some of us don't.
And that, my friend, is how we are all different.
:iconxblackwater:xblackwater 253 52
I Won't Speak
I'm sorry; I won't speak, lest
you know how I feel, or
feel how my heart aches,
in silence, and conceals how
much I care for you, and the
things that I go through:
should I drown in my fears, or
spill my heart to you?
:iconxblackwater:xblackwater 290 67
i'll measure my life
in coffee grounds, in summer
freckles and you
:icondaybreaksmiles:daybreaksmiles 76 36
moon flower, tonight
your petals unfurl for me,
do not shy 'till dawn.
:icondaybreaksmiles:daybreaksmiles 41 22
I gaze upon
parted lips and wonder, will 
they capture mine?
:icondaybreaksmiles:daybreaksmiles 43 12
Mara by polaus Mara :iconpolaus:polaus 1,951 67
ours was an arpeggio stroll
some mornings
I walk a thin line--
an abandoned thread between
two people I recall
as you and me.
no fear in my stride,
I hardly look down.
a simple skim across the city.
the buildings straight-backed tall like
caffeinated, grey businessmen
on the subway train,
with their minuscule sways, 
sitting, waiting
for their day to begin--
life too, maybe.
a bird, the pigeon
pudgy, frightful 
on the street yet
graceful on the skyline
gliding wistful as a cloud on
the bluest day.
like we used to be.
reckless abandon:
that was us.
ever the kitchentable circlers
ever the chasers of dreams
ever the lovers dressed in moonlight seams
ever the seemingly dispassionate with secret smiles,
brimming all the same with hidden fires.
never badly tired
yet ever joyfully breathless.
we did it for us,
no one else.
never forever but
only for we two 
today lovers.
glancing at my reflection
I see someone split in two,
stripped of an adventurous tune--
and exiting the tunnel I see you,
not fly
:icon0hgravity:0hgravity 19 27
angst and stars
i wanted to tear out all of the constellations
that made you whole,
all of those tiny dead stars that made you
feel alive.
:icondelirious-eyes:delirious-eyes 5 2
deadbeat karma
her hair blew in the 1970's wind
across pennsylvania, john lennon glasses
trembling on her nose,
shaken by her contagious inhibition.
her flaw was the cigarette burning bright between
her lips; orange when she blew against the smoke.
soon she would turn into ash just as she really was,
her lungs would collapse like the twin towers and she would go down, but this time she would feel her body fall against the harsh cold of the concrete, the crowd beyond whispering,
"what goes around comes around, darling."
:icondelirious-eyes:delirious-eyes 7 3
I'll Never Grow Tired
Tonight I'm going to stop you
on the porch, we'll stand toe to toe
the way we used to when
the pulse that thrummed
quick and strong through our veins
sang out our young, unbridled hope.
Our eyes will meet and,
just like the first time,
I'll take a moment to run my fingers
through your shining thoughts and
caress the sharp lines of your mind.
I'll lean forward and press my lips onto
the the flower-petal curve of your self-expression,
and that will be enough for you
to take me by the hand
and lead me up the stairs.
In the soft moonlight that filters through
the trees and our gauzy curtains
I'll unbutton your fears and slip them from your shoulders,
revealing smooth broad dreams. And,
careful not to miss a single freckle of insecurity,
I'll kiss my way down to the hollow of your throat,
where your soft-spoken tendencies
rest among unshakable beliefs. 
Between the ridges of your ribs I'll count your worries
and smooth them away with my fingertips.
Over the subtle curve of your hips
