Angry Diamonds


Easy isn’t it

Just say yes

And you’re done!

From there on you’re helpless

What seems good for one

Is very bad for some.

 

 

Though you cannot see them

There are vultures out there

listen to me I say

Stay on your guard and be aware

Don’t be taken in by the play

Keep them all at bay.

 

 

And remember this

Never let your guard down

It is easy to be distracted

The truth not always shown

A play of deceit enacted

And soon your shield is retracted.

 

 

Defenceless

Hidden away no more

Fonts of sadness escape

Aimless and sore

mist over the mind’s landscape

No longer protected by a drape.

 

 

Only one cure

Only one way to forget

To put aside and calm your mind

Move on, out of the net

By the seas and caressing wind

Angry Diamonds left behind.

Ode to beauty lost


A while back I had started writing something which had been pressing on my mind for a long time. Various formats, phrases, words and what not had flitted through my mind but never quite solidified into anything. A year or so it took until last month I sat down and started off the first few words only to get stuck after a few lines.

It sat there for sometime until I picked it up and added a bit more. Though the words were flitting in and out of my conciousness – some pharses, some words being those which had first shot through my mind a year ago, others were evolutions of a phrase I no longer remember in its entirety.

This start/stop/think/write process lasted about a month and finally I think I have a final product.

The result may be found here – Ode to Beauty lost
