    Mermaid

    I love the beauty of the sea Within its depth a part of me No better where I'd rather be The only place that I feel free. To breathe within its briny air To feel its breath blow back my hair At the blue horizon stare That is where you'll find me there. I hide within its shallow...

    A Thousand Times

    I get scared sometimes,

    by a coldness in the reflection of my own eyes. As if they know something I refuse to believe. Like he's daring me to see beyond the lies. I've written poetry about chess, as a central metaphor for the way I go about living life. I confess that I like Knights the best. They...

    Licking her lips and tasting the wine, Closing her eyes tightly as her mouth becomes a smile, Tossing her alarm on the floor, continuing her dream for a while.

    Today, trapped like a fly between the curtains

    and the window pane. Desperately trying to enter the paradise outside whilst some invisible force kept her back. Exhausted she lay listlessly, feeling all hope drain away. She watched the sun go down and hoped she would live through the night to fight another day.
