Sojourn

i talk to the breeze
like a hum
in my dreams,
a dreamcatcher
or a foot in my mouth

apparitions, colourful
violets in my system
my jaws sing your name
in the timeless mirth
of ginger talks
of lotus love,
blooming in the dirt

Stay my love
to be stitched
in my memories
that still crave for stars
hands swinging
like lost in the air.

Stay my love
inside my loose septic nostrils
fill my loops
with dews of hiccups
stains, absurdity
stay like a poetry
and sing rhymes of sorority.

  1. Love this!! Very relatable and diction that snatches the reader up and doesn’t let them breath until the very end. Well done! 💕

      1. Sure, I am going to be reading every single of your post with utmost interest, you don’t even have to say that. Be assured.🤗
        Umm.. I am not too sure about instagram though. I am not there yet and I just feel it would somehow be very difficult for me to manage it, given the history that I fail to be regular. 😂 But we should never be saying never, right ? So may be I will try it someday when I am more confident about taking a shot at it. 😁
        Keep writing, you should know there are whole lot of people like me who eagerly wait to read you. 🤗
        Much love!
        ❤️❤️❤️
