DuST !


It was a promise

That you shattered

With my heart

You walked away

Like nothing mattered

I was glued to my last hope

But you killed

What was left of me

My faith so blurred

In my own destiny

Like sandstorm

Like flood

Like hail

Like blood

Bound my fear

Numb to words

Numb to love

Numb to a new wish

I now stay numb to a promise

Numb to any promises

That knock on my door

From the mind of a saint

Or heart of a whore

I am numb to new wishes

Numb to all cliches

Love flows in the numb veins

Once again

I cannot espy any pleasure any pain

Faith stares at me from across the shore

Blurred, hazed not familiar anymore

A promise so shattered

That the pieces are strangers to themselves

What was a solitaire once

Is now settled

Like dust on the shelves…

Like the woods in the forest

Tired of finding its roots

The beauty we cherish

With the pain within they perish

Like a drop in the ocean

Finding ones’ shore

Sparkles at the sun

But struggles to break out

Of the worldly galore

Like that golden grass at the edge

Of a tall standing mountain

Wanting to break free

Etched as so pretty

Living a brutal reality

Tied on the face of freedom

I wonder if that’s me…

A night of darkness

A beautifully painted sky

And there lies a fallen star

Irony of beauty

We ask for a wish

From a star that fell

When maybe it’s only wish was to live…

Music that once lifted my soul

Looks at my barren heart

With a question

Who do I call my own…

Would you hear

My silent screams

Would you peek

Into my vacant dreams

Hold my hand

On an unknown road

When all I was taught

Was to walk alone…

Why does one walk into a door

Sitting in an empty room of islands

I look for my soul…

Searching for a word

Comfort of a nest

Leave me lost

Or make me whole…

I Might Have Found Love


I might have found love
Dancing in the woods
Feeling every drop of determined rains
In the arms of a man
I might never meet again
Air so free
And a soul so pure
Songs so sweet
The moment of never before
My lame attempt to put in words
A lifetime lived in a day of love
A smile pinned
For those dark brown eyes
Destiny I believed
Now destiny described
My dream to wander
For a day came true
With the strings of a guitar
Of a melodious tune
A sky sketched
Just for me
Dear mountains you brought back
A little faith
Like the last leaf bonded
To the highest tree
I close my eyes
And I feel the breeze
A kiss from the clouds
Upon my cheeks
A scent imbibed
Of a memory so deep.
I have never been so lost
And found my soul
Lived a dream
That made me whole
At a loss of words
Was I
In the lap of peace
The moment of forever
The moment of free
A sky so beautiful
A celebration of stars
I wasn’t in me
I traveled so far
I might have found love
In the valley of tress
Countless waves
Fallen leaves
Song of a river
Unknown roads
Endless sky
Sands of hope
I might have found love
In the clouded breeze
A frozen stone
A bird unseen
Sound of the hills
Whispering to me
I might have found love
In mysteries…

A Few Good Men

With a hundreds of experiences we have everyday with the kind of guys we call “typical” we forget to appreciate a few men we have in our lives who are a class apart, they set our standards high and restore our faith. So this one is dedicated to those few who come to mind while posting this, and girls you are free to tag whoever if you know of a few good men in your life too!


“A few good men”

In the crowd of the regulars
He is a man with a meaning
With the warmth of a gentleman’s touch
He will simply rise above
Every act is a straight act
He doesn’t manipulate you into believing
Restoring your faith in being a person of substance
Not just another woman without
A voice actually heard at any instance
No time spent has a destiny
It’s hours of conversations
And Fears
Endless stories of when you were a child
Endless secrets hidden
That he brings alive
His worries and witty
A little more trust in your kitty
He will laugh heartlessly at your foolishness
And the choices that you make
But will be your pillar
Won’t let you give up and break
Will listen to your blabber for hours
Whatever sense it may make
He may do several things
Keeping no count
Of give and take
He treats you like a his buddy
Still opens the car door
Serves you
Before you say it
He completes your words
Hates your drunkenness
But he is the one to tuck you in first
No unrealistic promises
No shower of praises
Its not in the words he says
It’s the act he displays
He holds your hands
Not aiming at your waist
A relationship of respect
A relationship of faith
You have seen him through years
To appreciate the man he has become
He might have phased
to treating you wrong
Certain things you wished could be undone
But he made it to your heart
With that one last chance he got
He has glimpses of your father
And a friend at it’s best
You hate your fights
But it’s just like yesterday
When it all comes to rest
He could choose to enter a house
And might have a night
This man would choose to rather
Be with you through a roller coaster ride
Together with whatever there is to share
A beautiful life.

Hundred Pretty Faces

pretty faces

A hundred pretty faces
A night of crowded places
One that caught his sight
Searching for truth
Among a hundred lies
His heart twirled in emotions
When she was asked for a dance
He stood in one corner
Not losing her glance
Calculating his pros and cons
Letting go or take a chance
Afraid she will turn around
And catch his stare
Is it just another night
Of a pretty love affair
Could he let her walk out
Through the door she wouldn’t return
Left his drink at the counter
Picked courage to ask his turn

He now saw her closely
Remembered the song
Of the girl with a broken smile
But she was certainly not 18
Neither in denial
Her laughter knew no bounds
She swayed to every tune
But in another man’s arms

He rehearsed ten lines in his head
To start a word
With a woman who looked like a dream
She was pretty, not exceptionally
But her beauty seemed deeper
Than her beautiful dress, perfect heels
Her branded perfume and scented creams

What would he say he thought
Should he just ask her for the dance
To his surprise she had stopped
Took a rest on a wall besides him
Dismissing her friends request to join back
Said I am sorry
I just can’t connect to this music
It is a funny mixture of electronic and trance

He now had to think for ten more
Not so cheesy but interestingly appropriate lines
He was amazed how this stranger in a club
Had hypnotized his mind

He thought of different stories
She would have about her life
Had she been in love
Had she been hurt
Had she really risen above
He went back to his life
And things that didn’t work for him
Few minutes and he battled within

Call it luck but funny
She asked him for a light
What would he say next
His thoughts were now noise

Do you come here often he asked
No she said plainly, just a few random nights
But tonight the music is ok
Usually it’s nice

He nodded in acceptance
To every word she said
One word led to another
He seemed to have earned her respect

I know you want my number she said
Why haven’t you already asked
He chose to be honest
Said yes,I would love to
But I suppose that would make you uncomfortable
So I decided to just pass
And just as he said it he heard the most beautiful laugh
I didn’t know you exist and I am glad we met she said
Left her number on his phone
He smirked when she left
Blind to her reality
Chose to judge her instead
Questioned himself
Drank and drove
Never made the call
Proud to have his mind on his head

Hundred pretty faces
Another night of crowded places
But none now caught his sight
He enjoyed his music and looked around
For that stranger who had owned his mind.

Less than Perfect

Less than perfect
Would you define to it me
It’s that half spoken word
A fallen out love
It’s her who walks on an unknown road
Relentlessly but calm towards a preserved land of hope
It’s them waiting for a moment that has passed
Lost in a vision of perfection sought
It’s that feeling suppressed
When in the suspicion of reality it’s dressed
It’s that song incomplete
Wrapped in ignorance a pain so strong a love obsolete
It’s the story you read
To alter it’s presence upon your mind
You chose to cut off the linking thread
It’s the words you wrote
Erased to your belief
Because it missed a rhythmic node
A blossomed flower
On its delicate feet
Plucked for its beauty
Story of it’s journey
Lost amidst the fallen leaves
A beautiful face with a missing smile
A dancing soul pulled out of life
Reasons put to a simple belief
Layers of questions
Would it be right, to just be me
A call unanswered
A letter not read
A journey missed
In contemplation, rested on denial instead.
A day just lived as a day to pass by
Unwed to the mysteries of the capricious sky
Not in love with the surrounding air,
The music of the mountains
The waves of the ocean in an arrogant flair
The beauty of dusk and the wait of dawn
Settled with known
Absence of will to explore beyond
Hypnotized in a conscious state
A dream so clear, strength so hazed
Less than perfect
How would you define it to me
Song of your soul
Caged in reality.

My Right To Love

This is dedicated to all fighting #377 


A destiny borne child

To live while alive

Dreams to withhold

Trying to be as told

Craving insight

In a world of rules

Forced to forget

Not allowed to feel the truth

Because of a few who have never known

But sit on their throne

Like they own your thoughts and life

Leading you to battle

Fighting to survive

Half a life lived knowing who you are

Half a life lived seeking freedom of the stars

Growing old with a million stories untold

My right to love

My right to hate

My right to live in my natural state

Who would be you

To define my right and wrong

I also sing with nature

I know where I belong

I pity a soul

That define love by laws

Look at your mirror

Go correct your flaws

I will live a life meant for me

I will define my own destiny.

Shades Of Silence


As I walk in a crowded street

I feel the silence of my beating heart

The sound of my every breath

I feel my soul buried in me

so deep.


The silence of a mother’s smile

Embracing a life inside

Bright Darkness of an unknown world

Mysteries of her child’s touch


Silence of waving sea

Shaded in time

Travelled through eternity

Silence of a blooming flower

Waited for a season so far

Silence of a falling leaf

Relinquishing the breeze of life

As they swing

To the ground touching the soul of their mother tree

Silence of the mountains so colossal

As they stand strong

Validating the existence

Of a new life, a fossil


Silence of the dawning air

The eagerness it flaunts

It’s extortionate flair


Silence of a broken heart

Denial of a soul

Separation of faith

Silence of love fallen apart


Silence of the unsaid trust

Sound of music

A song of no words


Silence of an endless wait

Shades of silence

In the arms of your spirit

In the womb of immortality

Night and Day.

Morning Whispers


As the night descends

In the arms of dawn

I wake up,

Still sleeping probably still dreaming

When the whisp of whisper

Blew through my hair

The sweet seduction

Of this redolent

Drenched in the rain


Humming through my Soul

This incorrigible morning air!


The colossal sky

Pulls me closer to it’s infinity

Several moments lived

Floating in the lansdcape of my mind

A painting so sublime…

Holding back,the blink of my eye

A moment to be mentioned

In my diary of memories

The moment of the bewildered, muddled sky

A moment so fierce, A moment so shy


A song I sing

In concert of my heart, soul and mind

Thanking this prepossesing, Pacific morning

For the kiss of sunshine!

Heart Of A Child


With a heart of a child

I played on love

Dreams of stars

Shapes in the sky

Words made of honey

Smiles of a butterfly


Naive I remained

To your theories on me

I didn’t ask you questions

Now because I knew your fears

Or just a casual affair

As you flaunt your feelings

I look now at myself

I see a broken me


Trying hard to hold

This stone of gold

Times we spun

Songs I wrote


Glories of a king

Eyes of a queen

Saga of a war

Death unheard

Love unseen


A thought that floats

All that’s felt before

Love of a man

Nonchalant shadows


The air I breathe

The sight I see

Weaving my words

Sound of the echo

In the heart of a child

That managed to survive

Inside of me.
