What I Saw/What She Saw.


Forgive her,

For realizing only too late

That when you wrote her something

You didn’t see lines

Stanzas and the occasional rhymes;

Rather, you only saw yourself

Giving her a piece,

Of your soul.

Daily Prompt: Learning

CLOUDs (part 4)


This happens to be the only series I have that shows how my writing has evolved over the years. Dating back to my pre-poetry era, I loved prose then, but yeah, things change; for the better in this instance.

(With the first part having been written in 2013)

I’ve made it a rule to post one part every year till I find what i’m looking for; Its been quite the journey so far 🙂 .

CLOUDs (part 1)

CLOUDs (part 2)

CLOUDs (part 3)

Lying idly

On the prickly green

Above me

Lies clouds in motion

An exodus drifting to

Who knows where.

For a second;

Just but a second,

My selective consciousness

Allowed me to imagined

That it was me

Leaving them

For somewhere better.

Blue Skies.



A sense of longing

Contact took an eternity,

The virtual equivalent

Of  locking lips

With the sky.

The writing leads me

Wherever I want to be,

Relative realities

Constantly constructed

Uglier to others,

But prettier to me.

Defenses: Conquered.

Literally abusing

His literary talent,

Evoking and expressing,

Feelings and deeper meanings

Leaving her

Used-to-be shields.



– Original-Dante

Irresistible, She Is.

Highly irresistible,

Permeating your visuals,

An unfailing presence

The very essence

Of her ultra-magnetic aesthetic.


– Original-Dante

Romance Unattainable.

She is forever

What they will never,


Dream of having.

Eye Like It.

A case of deep stares

Into each other’s souls

The quickest access

Rather, a stair-case

To Cloud 9.

– Original-Dante

Long Distance.


Never thought

I would fall in love

With slumber,

With dreams,

Until I realized

That its the closest

I ever get

To seeing you.

The Confidence Department.


Saying she lacks

In the confidence


Is an injustice

That cannot be passed,

From what I’ve noticed

It is always

Fully staffed.
