​IN THIS POEM (CRAZY STANZAS)

Mum C Writes


On this dead branch

Carried by water, I thread

Each step, a shocking surprise

Interlaced with fear

But like a blessed cat with nine lives

The soul carries this body in moving on


II

My only cocoon is you

This poem, where my bed of peace is laid

My only home is you

This poem, where my cool waters pamper for a swim

My only shade is you

This poem, which arrests the murderous sun

And serves a breathing seat amidst all the dying

My only shelter is you

This poem, in the midst of perilous snakes

Which hide in trousers of life to defile my happiness

My only saviour is you

This poem, which baptizes to cleanse my soul

Of the daily dirty stones pelted by life’s criminal side

My only hope is you

This poem, you, a perfect diary keeping my mind in

In you

Growth..

Within myself
My power
Chruns
Turning over
Waking from
Slumber as I
Continue to
Sprout and push
Forth from
The
Soil of the delusions
Set before me

Growing
Still beyond
The
Darkness.

Power…

I want to
Know you

Everything you
Are I want
To learn

Every flaw I
Want to claim
As mine and take you
Beyond sentiments
And mere imaginings

Give you
Reality
Untamed

Where we don’t
Have to be seen
Where we
Can be
Free

Indulge
In depths of
Souls
Intertwined

And recite
Verse unencumbered

And
Raw…

I want
To know you

Your
Aura calls
To me

Your energy
Holds me in
Awe

And I long
To let loose
To
You

All of
My

Power.

Loner

“Loner”

I continue to
Try and be
The best person
I can but I’m
Always seen
As inadequate
Or made to feel
As if I’m
Not
Enough

Or as if
The skin
I was born
In is my calling
Card to failure…

I’ve never felt
As if I fit
In or belonged to
This world but
Still I try to
Hold my head up
And press on

But lately within
Myself I’ve been
Losing
The light

Succumbing
To this feel
Of loneliness
Where only I
Know the
Pain
Behind these
Eyes

That no
One cares to
Look…

I thought that
I’d finally found
Myself after so
Long of looking

I thought
Finally someone
Would understand

But now
I know I’ll
Face this
World coldly
Alone

A
Loner

With no
Space

With no
Land.
