The Caged Butterfly…

Standard

I was once the queen of the sky
My crown would shine every time I flew up so high
I was once a free butterfly

butterflies

I was once part of the colourful gardens
I never imagined I could ever die
My bed was a rose and my perfume the nectar
My light was that ever shining star
I was once part of a magical universe
In its beauty I would immerse

red roses

Until one day, I got captured
My tiny heart got raptured
I was promised love
I was told I will fly freely like a dove
I was promised life
I was promised dreams

Today I am a caged butterfly
Hopelessly trying to flap my wings again
Tears drop every morning as I know the roses are enjoying the dew of dawn
And I am dying with every drop as it evaporates the land

Yesterday I was a free butterfly
Flapping my wings like there was no tomorrow
Aching with today’s sorrow
Alas, the cage is becoming tighter as my days pass by
I can barely breath or sigh

butterflies

And I grow out of that promised love
That took my hope of life
Never tried to reconcile
Helplessly Watching me die

And I wonder, will tomorrow be the last day I bid farewell
Leaving me with only one desire
To forgive my sweet heart that failed me
As I die in peace and enjoy returning to that place I belong
So long, so long to you my caged butterfly.

remember my message

 

Let Love Live…

Standard

Ode to a dying soul
Can your heart love more than you can?
LetLoveFree
Does your body ache when you know
It’s a love so deep and
Never did it sleep
Feelings that can not be measured
or expressed in words
soulofagypsy-letloveliveSadness spreads in your veins
When you realise
The song of those two loving souls
Can never be heard
LetLoveLive-jpg

For why did it appear
When all was supposed to disappear
With time
With distance
With circumstance

Can your heart love more than you can?

Let Love Live
Beyond time
Beyond distance
Beyond circumstance
LetLovebe

Let Love drive away sadness
Let Love drive away despair
Let Love run wild
Let Love in
Let Love be
Let Love be Us
Let Love Live.
LetLoveLive

Shadows in the Sand…

Standard

Hand in hand our shadows collide like velvet on those dunes,
soul of a gypsy.jpg
Moonlight protecting our undefined love, so fragile,
Our ancient hearts locked in eternity,
Overwhelmed to keep some of my sanity,
We will forever be bound and that is a relief,
At last I can make peace, as I grow beyond belief.

Remembering that day when our eyes met,
And I instantly knew, it was all set,
Souls living so close yet so apart,
It all had to end when it was meant to start,
Chained in thoughts and lovely memories,
Such precious feelings to make all those stories.
Portrait of a real woman

Each of us living a life of circumstance,
Yet, knowing when our minds touch,
Our hearts and souls entwine with love, and
We see each other in each others eyes, and
Our pain becomes simple sighs.

A reflection of you as I look in the mirror, and
I know how much I missed you,
A memory locked in my heart, and
Forever will remain,
Those lovely souls that dance,
Painting their shadows in the sand.

Dedicated to those beautiful souls who know how to dance and celebrate love, this song really complements my post.

Pearls and Fantasies…

Standard

Looking at my reflection while I sit by the shore,
A stream of sunshine grabs my attention as it lusters on the surface,
pearlsbytheshore-soulofagypsy
And I get a glimpse;
Of that time when I was the happiest girl in the crowd,
Determined to celebrate my life, my new home,
I wanted to welcome the New Year with all that is light,
That night I decided the theme will be all white,
Soul of a gypsy

Embraced by my lovely pearls, surrounded by beauty and electrifying joy,
That evening, I was queen, I ruled the night, I guarded the shadows spreading my love,
I wanted my heartbeat to echo into the night and celebrate the woman, I so proudly became.
That night I set my intentions to the universe,
I sent my gratitude with the wind to every corner of the world,

Suddenly;
A wave splashes and droplets touch my face,
I shrug my shoulders,
Feelings of sadness takeover,
The dream that I had built over night,
That special celebration I marvelled,
That smile engraved in my face,
That heart beat I echoed,
Those lovely pearls I adored,
The sweet perfume of the evening,
That New Year I longed to enjoy,
The dance that obeyed my steps,
The queen got stabbed by the dark
and took a piece of my heart.
That woman was cursed by the night.

Mirage

So I decided…
Those pearls that I so dearly wore,
Will be the story of my last post.

Until, a voice from my past sent me waves of love,

And reminded me that…
Pearls live on after growing from a grain of sand,
Unlike humans, they are timeless.

I looked up and…
A magical breeze whispers,
Promises of colourful music,
Passionate words to design my poems,
Love to overshadow the dark,
Sending me rose petals to kill that curse.

The next time I get adorned by my precious pearls,
Will be to rise up again and fearlessly,
Honour my eternal fantasy.

Hymn of Life…

Standard

I decided to make peace.

While I enjoyed memories of the past,

I looked forward to the future,

Something about the present kept telling me this will pass,


Glimpses of the past and

Dreams of the future made me hold on…

Hold on I did, but they fooled me,

I was just stuck,

It was such a haze,

A complete illusion.


There needs to be more to it than just such days.

Will this ever end?

A hymn of life,

A hum of destiny,

A painting so old,

Yet some luster of gold,

Leaving a promise of a story,

Painted in the past,

Colored with our presence,

Speaking to us in its glory,

Reflecting our time tomorrow.

Will our perception change,

If we make peace?

Silent Words…

Standard
Silent Words…

Emotions running through my mind,

Words I pronounced but not a soul would hear,

My heart tore, when with all I said,

the answer I got, was,

An indifferent stare.

I cried, I screamed, I knelt, I prayed, I surrendered,

And not a soul did hear,

The promise I made to myself,

I let me down.

My tears, as they fall down my face,

Are filled with regrets, for

I couldn’t save,

That oath I made,

To myself…

Those silent words, echo an undesirable destiny, a bitterness, of a crying soul,

Life, it let me down.

As time goes by,

I count my years,

Such days that I dread with every dawn,

And abhor with every sunset,

Have become a sign.

I am drowning in quick sand,

Those days passed by,

Before my eyes,

Forever gone, and,

All I got was a stare,

There’s no looking back.

Mirage…

Standard
Mirage…

Caught between two worlds,

Torn between a present and a past,

Holding on to memories like they were today,

Struggling with the present as its promises fade,

Wanting to live the moment and make it worthwhile,

But my dreams are overwhelming, and I find myself,

Embracing the future with visions of illusion.

Distracted by these two dimensions,

I find myself wanting today and longing for tomorrow,

It’s just a mirage. 

None of them are existing.

It’s better to feel the dream, than to taste, the unclear reality.

It’s just a mirage…

 

 

When The Music Starts…

Standard
When The Music Starts…

My heart sings!

My life beats with happiness…

My senses are overwhelmed with joy,

My existence, suddenly makes so much sense,

My reason to be, me.

I miss you.

So far apart, 

We have been destined

To meet once,

To fall in love,

To see ourselves in each other’s eyes…

To turn the desert into an ocean,

To swim with our emotions,

To pray and to find out,

We were together in the past.

We are years apart, and memories have faded,

Yet those sparks of love, remind us,

That we once existed, together.

Lovers, oceans apart,

And we met only once.

When the music starts-

I miss you.

Smiles and butterflies

Tomorrow is a new day

Oh Soul 

Standard
Oh Soul 

“Oh soul,you worry too much.

You have seen your own strength.

You have seen your own beauty.

You have seen your golden wings.

Of anything less,

why do you worry?

You are in truth

the soul, of the soul, of the soul.”

~ Rumi
