What do you see?

"Why do you paint a gloomy picture? You are quite adept at making the best situation look dire. Do you want to have another go?" "Yes, please. So, I see a lady in a red swimsuit lying on her back. She is quite close to the sea... so close." He throws his hand up in … Continue reading What do you see?

Dream with care

Sings all day, ne'er cries Knows no pain, joys or sorrows She is a mermaid I had a dream To break boundaries To be a star My hopes started with a flicker now they are large, larger than life A raging fire Threatening to engulf from within They must breath, else I can't be On … Continue reading Dream with care

Miss Dainty

One hop, two hops, twirl A dainty form on life's stage. Cheers, boos, laughs or cries, Dainty moves with no remorse. Will she spend time on time past? Most certainly not! ❤Aweni Adams Image and poetry ©Aweni Adams 2019

Up in the air

  Do you remember? Mama told you and I That our wings would take us places never before seen To the fifth and sixth seasons that humans know not of As the winds ruffle my feathers I chuckle as I recall my doubt when mama spoke Twirling and sailing in the air I speed up then … Continue reading Up in the air

For the love of Id

Today I give of a different side of me. A side hidden under the layers you want to see. The side of me drowning in a sea of guilt. Ignoring your life buoys, I struggle in desperation as the tides rise and the storm builds. This storm is of your make. Your rules are the death … Continue reading For the love of Id

Be what you seek

  I leaf through the books of old. Like a leech to skin, I suck in the feats of warriors past. Each word gives light to stories not written. I wish I could tell each of them that none is forgotten. Their descendants takes delight in their every effort. In every word and thought left … Continue reading Be what you seek
