AUTUMN

Coldness comes
in waves of colour and sound,
and
I often imagine myself,
barefoot,
in a pile of leaves,
waiting for you to come to me,
to be an echo of that one evening
that I can’t forget.
I want to embrace the approaching winter
with a thought
that you’ll stay that way forever -
an idol.
A never-ending mirage.
Like the sound of horses in the distance,
our days disperse
further and further apart.
Little disappointing actions
turn into a map of roads
that were never meant to intersect.
I tried so hard
(or maybe not enough)
to keep my head full of dreams
and my heart free of remorse,
that I forgot to forget
that you are just a reverie.

INTIMACY

We ignored cats eyes
as we drove through drying-out puddles,
and into a fabric of a peachy night.
My toes on the dashboard
and too-fast beating hearts
were only few pieces of this short story.
Your tongue
turned into a thief of my kisses,
and in return,
I gave you my mouth
as a finger-sucking monster.
Hipbones, pressed hard against the leather.
Shadows, flickering on our faces,
in the light of passing cars.
They stopped for a second to watch us,
just like our heartbeats did,
every time my neck got bitten
by you.
We woke up in separate beds,
but we both knew, it isn’t an illusion
of how good our love is,
when mixed together.
I burn your oxygen, while you replace mine -
a constant stream of perfect love drops.
My shyness was paper-white and angelic,
until you spoiled it.
Like a hunter spoils feathers of the swan,
marking them red.
With a bullet.

It has been 4 years since I joined WordPress. It has been such a blast. I’m honoured to have met all of you. Thanks for staying so awesome!


LITTLE YOU KNEW

I stood there,
waiting for you to make the first step.

Backwards.

I wanted to see your eyes glazing up
with ever-so-dark shadows of the night,
so you would blend into the night,
and I would feel less awkward
about not caring anymore.
I wanted to remind you
of all that vast number of days
I spent watching your face lit up
when I smiled at you.
Little you knew,
that I was trying so hard
to find something to smile about.

Constantly.

We played each other,
like a game of monopoly -
we built houses
and rolled the dice
to score a bigger number
against one another,
chasing money and power,
as we brushed against each other.
Like a vicious fox,
you attacked my body,
trying to get to my heart,
but little you knew,
that it was already beating passionately
in another man’s palm.

P.S It has been a while since I flew around WordPress. It’s good to take a break sometimes. But it’s refreshing to be back. Please be patient with me while I catch up with everybody’s blogs. But I’m excited to be back in the land of inspirational words and creativity. Missed you all.


REPRIMAND

You grab my chin and force me to look up at you. I know you know that it’s the only way you’ll get my attention.

“I like it, when you are silent and don’t say a word. Then I convince myself that you are listening”, you say.

I want to tell you that you are not wrong. Of course I listen to you. I just don’t hear your words. They aren’t important. But I don’t want to continue this conversation.

“I want you to have a future”, I change the subject calmly.
“I want you to delete your past”, you snap back hastily.

Don’t we all want the impossible…

AIMLESSLY

Our stories add up
like multiplying numbers -
a progression
that has no end in your mind,
but digresses in sadness
that already met its end.
Suddenly nothing sums up -
life is all about a lottery,
where
wishful thinking is a promise of better days,
but in the end…
…it’s just a useless piece of
floating paper
you throw in the air.
Aimlessly.
