Many Nights, Oh How I Wish …

Many Nights, Oh How I Wish …
A Poem on Tryst
8043f9e5b12149edde3ed487ecec041c
The day that comes
When I can look into the eyes
Of my very own creation
Holding their tiny hand of life
I will remember the days
Before that very moment
The forever wishing
And Praying of words
That I would be given
A tiny part of me
Deep inside of me
There has always been
This strong urge to be
A giver of life
Waiting for the day
To have a family of my own
Oh how I dream and desire
Wishing upon many of stars
Many things
I know I will say
Lessons to teach
And reasons to give
Follow your dreams
Don’t sacrifice your heart
Give love everyday
Most of all to yourself
Be kind to the world
To all its living things
Treat others the same
Be accountable and don’t blame
Learn from falling
Be strong and get right back up
It’s ok to cry
But don’t forget to smile and laugh
So I bequeath to you
The wisdom’s that I know
So that you
Never fall into the puddles
That I tragically did
If this day ever comes
If I’m ever given this gift
If the universe finds me fit
To show another my way
And love them when they find theirs …
Oh how I wish
For another part of me
And of him, of course
I am tired of being selfish
I am ready to do for another
I am done with the nonsense
Of all the little things that just don’t matter
Oh how I wish
For another part of me
And of him, of course …

Finding Solitude

This is a Poetic Duet written by Hastywords & Think. Speak. Tryst.

Always a pleasure exchanging words with Miss Hasty, who truly is a part of my heart. We have a sweet gift of being able to connect on a really deep level… We also believe that there is a possibility that we were separated at birth!

To me, this piece represents a spirit that needs to be free. It’s a piece about not wanting to be tied down in one place for too long. Obviously, I relate because it is the kind of spirit I have. One that looses its fire when it’s been trapped, imprisoned in the city, told it has nowhere to go and that everything I need is here…Well, I beg to differ.

I often write about how different we all are. So why do some think that what makes them happy, also makes everyone else happy? That is just ignorance. My happiness is different from others, this I know! Just because some people may be fine living their lives in one place, and never being free to see other wonderous places of this wonderful earth, that is certainly not my happiness. My spirit needs to go… My spirit needs to be free… That is who I am… Everyday, this place sucks more light out of me… You can see it in my eyes, if you look, my spark is gone….

Finding Solitude

 

Sand feels like velvet

Smooth & white underneath me

Imprinting my body’s curves

On the canvas of the Earth

 

The beach absorbing me

Taking me as I am

Pulling me into its gravity

As I inhale the sky above me

 

I brought my soul here

To sit in the salty air

Only for a day, to

Be free of my life entirely

 

My bare figure basking in rays

As seabirds cry me a song

The crashing waves a symphony

As my worries get washed away

 

Imagining my life was never mine at all

I absorb the earth’s elements

Becoming one with my surroundings

The sea has been calling to me

 

I lay here for days, nobody sees me

Praying mother earth will dissolve me

I implore the heavens above

To demand the surf to take me

 

Take me and wash away my mind

Worries and pain are gone with the sea

Becoming one with the land, the beach & the sand

I find solitude in my wishes today

  

Written by Miss Hasty & Miss Tryst

This is the second piece Hasty Girl & I have written on solitude…

Have This Wish…

Have This Wish…

I see you
Shinning bright in my sky
Up above us all
Each & every night
Glittering in the dark
Enticing us to wish
Us loving the thought
You’ll grant our wish list
I see you
Sparkling bright tonight
Glimmers of hope
For something, anything
Little are our souls
Running around our crazy lives
Into this moment
With you in sight
Looking up, asking you
To have my wish
I wish… tonight

Frozen Wishes

A Poetic Duet written with my darling Shruti of Passionwriting, who is just that, a lovely & passionate writer who puts her heart into her words!
 
‘Frozen Wishes’
 
imagesCA9CXQ35
 
 
Frozen
Like the cherries on the tree
Outside, is as cold as your heart
Yet you come knocking on my door
 
Unwillingly, I flung at the door
Only to let you in
Aware that you can slice it through
And leave me bleeding black and blue
 
 
Despite this truth
I always come to you
Unwilling to admit, your love
Still pulls at me, I am weak next to you
 
The desire to be with you
Is stronger than ever before
I am unable to resist the hold
You have on my heart and me…
 
How long will you keep teasing
The chords of my heart
Realize it’s meant to be
We should never be apart
 
I always believed in dreams
I hoped to find the prince
Can you give wings to my hope?
Can you make my heart whole?
 
I have looked to you
In so many times of needing
This love can be, for you, for me
An angelic answer to our prayers
 
We would unite with time
In your arms, I will find my world
We will walk down the aisle
And hope to be the embodiment of love
 
Frozen
Like the ice on the streets, I sat
Snapped back to reality, as I
Watched these events all take place
In my dreaming, hopeful, wishing mind.
