Unveiling (Published at The Writers Club)

Life is a masked ball,
a disguise for cheats.
Costumes always fall,
exposing concrete.
Some will want no end
to their masquerade,
comforts play pretend,
truth makes them afraid.

I too was a clown,
living in a lie,
till I heard the sounds,
of my heartbeats cry.
I made my life real
facing all I knew,
I then learned to feel
clearing all my views.

Push all masks aside
unveil a new life,
the soul will then guide,
shielding inner strife.
Laughs will sound sincere,
all smiles become pure,
joys also appear,
once pretend is cured.

Presence (Published at The Writers Club)

Shadow dancer
come guide my stroll,
open a place,
where we can go.

Walk through dry walls,
run up the stairs,
look in my mind,
help my soul dare.

Expose mystique,
life tries to hide,
swept off my feet,
your light unblinds.

Share tunes with me,
my beat is yours,
blend harmony,
our hearts beat pure.

Shadow dancer
please do not fade,
roam free all night,
linger all day.

Essence so clear,
yet filled with spark,
erase all fears,
felt in the dark.

Nobody (Published at The Writers Club)

Dancing to
the sounds of raindrops,
while they flood my
washed up shoes.
I can hear as
bells are ringing,
people run to
pay their dues.

I resist
but can not hide
as a tear
reaches my eye.
Sway around
move to the rhythm
of the droplets
falling down.

Failed to stop
I keep on moving
as my clothes
feel like the lake.
Never felt
exhilaration
crash so hard
my body shakes.

Felt a stillness
taking over
making this
my final dance.

Bitting hard
pierced my own lip
thanks to hope
received a chance.
