Glass slippers

Glass Slippers

glass-slipper

Its midnight

not the night of celebration.

Take the stairs and

runaway

because those are the sounds of cruel.

Healing deception of poison ivy.

You’re the knight

and you’re the prince.

Die like a warrior

and live for the war.

Don’t look for glass slippers

as they are crushed

at the gates of realm.

Horizon

the-horizon

Shiny glasses on concrete walls

Tiny people on crowded crawls

Haze in the air

choked my voice.

Sounds of nothing

blocked my view.

Many moons waited

and lost on the other side.

Many skies painted eve

on the light.

Somewhere in the air,

on top of the world

I lost my Horizon.

Fight !

ce3180656da04aa92d32393b1c1f3095

Fight for the words

unspoken,

lines unheard.

Time which passed

but not spend together.

Fight with the silence

and with noise inside.

Dreams rusting in the book

and smiles paused on the lips !

Fight for their glance

and your reflection !

Thoughts which locked

and waiting to be free,

send them to the most

wanted one.

Fight for the sorry and

for the apology !

Don’t let the false pretense

lead the way.

Fight for this life

else you might have to wait

for another lifetime !

A Fragment

23438256700_90f34f094f

Tiny grass shining

on the flood plain.

which died in the woods

and remained to be ashes

which grow in the desert

became nest of the wings

color of butterflies and song

of the spring !

Glowing light in the winter

and the walk of ladybug !

A drop fills the heart

with pearls.

A wandering soul

alter the course !
