True Love

Hello to my truly, lovely angels! I enjoyed the storytelling and simple symbolism. This made me realize that I don’t necessarily need to use big words or long stanzas to make a great poem. I love how it’s merely describing an everyday occurrence and how it pertains to how women interact with gay men. At least that’s what I got out of it. Well, enjoy! And please check out Duncan’s blog while you’re here!

True Love

she  shows me

the new backpack

that her boyfriend had bought her

for her sixtieth birthday

he was so pleased with the colour

her favourite green

she hates it

but she didn’t tell him that

it’s not the right fit

on her shoulders

like the wonderful red parka

he bought her for Christmas

she loves the colour

but the zipper doesn’t work easily

she has to zip a little 

before putting it on

I guess he’s from India

as she imitates his accent

I like so much to give you things

she’s grateful to receive his gifts

but will insist

that in future she go with him

when he’s going to buy 

a surprise for her

she asks me

if that sounds reasonable

Vibrant Rejuvenation – A Passionate Appeal 

Hello to my vibrant, fallen angels! Once in a while, it’s great to step aside from posting (especially during a writer’s block… I won’t tell if you won’t LOL) and give a fellow blogger the recognition and publicity they need to feel inspired again. Veena is amazing! I love her choice of sophisticated language and rhyming schemes. This poem, specifically, really stuck out for me. Well, I hope you enjoy! (And please check out her blog when you can!)

Recollections At Fall


Behold a solitary figure away from inquisitive gaze lost and floundering

Dispassionate and unconcerned oblivious to her surrounding

While nature displayed her gracious charm unabashed

The azure sky a canvas of beauty unsurpassed

The golden orb radiated warmth and a dazzling brilliance

A truant wispy cloud perched precariously on a snow capped mountain at a distance

Birds glided smoothly across the ultramarine expanse in a decorous array

In close contention the earth outshone the ethereal magnificence with a proud display

The rural ambience abounded in mesmerizing sights and joyous sounds

A breathtaking panoramic feast captivated one and all around

Unmoved she sat in solitariness wrapped in self imposed seclusion

Choking and crumpling within widening the lacuna with woeful reflections

The abysmal pit hollow and dark resonated the cacophonous conflicting emotions

In vain she tried to end the strife stifle the silent screams and the frenzied commotion

Hopelessly she failed to…

Mirrors

Hello to my self-aware fallen angels! I came across this piece by Chris Nicolas recently. This passage really hit home for me. He said some very beautiful and positive things. So check out this reblog and feel free to delve deeper into his blog as well. Have a wonderful day! Over and out.

“A true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.”

-Elizabeth Gilbert

I used to believe that I was a man who had been blessed with the gift of intellect. I spent years convinced that I was the smartest person in any room; often closing myself off from the opinions of others. I would gnash my teeth at the slightest hint of conflict, and reveled in my ability to push my own agendas onto others, whilst belittling theirs. Yet while I thought that I was a magnificent mind perpetually on the cusp of achieving great things, the truth is that I was a bit of a dick. I bruised egos, hurt feelings, and let down the people closest to me.

During these volatile years, I was tolerable at…

Wild And Wicked

Hello to my wild and wicked fallen angels! I have been following thesarahdoughty for quite a while now. She is a brilliant and strong writer! I highly recommend that you check out this post from her as well as any other content from her blog. Please read it! I hope you enjoy “Wild and Wicked” by thesarahdoughty! 🙂

Sarah Doughty

It was the wickedness of your soul
that drew me to you. That wild glimmer
in your eyes, held me captive. Every breath
was a gentle whispering, like a hummingbird
in flight. Together, we conquered. Together,
we prevailed. Together, time was our enemy.
At last, together, we lost it all.
