Belonging III

We slowly slipped

into the arms

of places and people

believing that they

could somehow

become home

;

When all we ever wanted,

was refuge

roses

roses have thorns

and yet

we still

find a way

to call them

beautiful

;

i’m trying to

figure out

why we still

call ourselves

broken

Solitary

Nightfall settles

into crevices

of blue

sky

As solitary

shadows

bleed into

backdrops of

lightbulbs and

fleeting existence

( how many times do we stay when we don’t need to? )

contemplation

Anton Repponen.jpg

i looked upon a sky painted

in shades of light blue

blended amongst touches

of reflection and introspection

as thoughts refused to let go

and minds began to seek clarity.

hope

occasionally hurt hearts

give way to droll souls

in the hope that may

placate the pain we

maintain in veins

that slowly drains

us.

( in the hope

that we may

heal )

Inspired by the Daily Prompt: Droll (It’s been a while since I did one these, thought I’d give it a try today. 💞 )

canvas

Henri Meilhac (2).jpg

I am an evolving canvas.

Composed of an oxymoron of misplaced

and masterful strokes.

But still unfinished.

( still painting )

there’s still times i feel the words

hammer against

an ellipse

of lips

and

i have

to remind

them that they can

finally leave the wards in which they always lived
