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.

If only you can read ….. self me !

Mirror of no reflection
By Angeloffallingstars

I have not seen megapixels

but words are my reflection.

Right or left, color and colorless,

views are not on sills !

If you can see,

there at the end of every word,

I’m standing, clear.

If you can read, (there lies my heart),

between the lines !

There is no selfie,

that matches many faces.

If you can read,

at the sound of every word,

there recline, self me !

Blank Lines

Cannot bear this anymore,

as I have to restore,

More solutions for each riddle,

trying to resolve.

More riddles for possible outcome,

worries to dissolve.

An endless quest with constant decay,

Which lead to eternal stay?

Valley in Kings Canyon By Albert Bierstadt

Valley in Kings Canyon
By Albert Bierstadt

A feeling that grows by days,

truth that hurts !

A life that slowly leading to abandon,

I’m stuck with natural fears;

a promise of alone.

Only reward I have drawn,

dearest precious objective.

Oh I whisper with my dream,

along countless tears.

I cannot bear this burden,

but have to endure.

An uncompromising compromise trying to decor,

Keeping those couple of lines,

blank and unexplored.

I might find another riddle,

with definite shore !
