Palette

Pink, for when a smile is painted Gray, for when the smile fades Red, for love unrequited; seeping from thirsty dried-up veins Blue, for cover of shelter provided while rain pours viciously outside Colors of darkness, show your palette; hues life would never dare to hide.

Dream

Feather pillows, blissful sleep, dreams where words never cease, seen in the skies within her mind, limitless, flowing truth. Emily C. Poésie © 2018 inpoems 567 guide phrases: the feather became a pen we knew the sky in a word Photo Credit

Manifest

memory of heaven, skies above, seem abstract pieces of my being, I look to you, the one I love, to quiet ancient suffering, break through my chains, enter my heart, eternal, there you will remain, be still my soul, within your arms, manifest, please come to me.

Sear

Searing, unforgettable, these are the ones that clench your soul, show you worlds unseen in others’ eyes, puzzling, and dazzling at the same time, leave their mark, then tend to leave, I label “him” he labels “me”. Emily©

Fade

I miss you, I do, just can’t be consumed by you all in one night, knowing I won’t see you for months at a time, your booze fueled words denied the next day, can’t be the rug sweeper you want me to be, despite the burning you incited in me. Emily©
