#micropoetry No. 10

 Continuing the challenge to keep writing poems of 144 characters or less. Here are a few more #micropoems. Poetry for twitter

1.

fact becomes fiction

reality becomes life

alternate is the new the norm

drink and feast

for tomorrow you die




2.

travelling into my space

the road less travelled

 dipping in and out

just visiting

a scary process

discovering what lies beneath

at my place


3.

poets, dreamers & writers

who do you talk to

and where do you go?

to those who live in

strange places

dead spaces

and

dream places?

#micropoetry No. 9

Continuing the challenge to keep writing poems of 144 haracters or less. Here are a few more #micropoems. Poetry for twitter 🙂

1.


gaze deeply

into deaths eyes

ponder on

what gazes back



2.


the myth

that one can

innocently stand by

is just that

a myth

#micropoetry No. 7

Continuing the challenge to keep writing poems of 144 characters or less. Here are three more #micropoems. Poetry for twitter 🙂

1.

feed me don’t tease me

said the lover

gorge yourself on love

life & lust

said the beloved



2.

love is beauty wrapped

in the seconds of one’s life

if you don’t stop

to breath

you might just miss it



3.

what is worse than death

dying leaving

nothing unfinished

the elusive, yet attainable

unfinished life

#micropoetry No. 6

Continuing the challenge to keep writing poems of 144 characters or less. Here are two more #micropoems. Poetry for twitter 🙂

 

1.

colours of lust

the setting sun

eclipse of your heart

tears on your cheeks



2.

rise of your breasts

mist of your breath

mist on the moors

it doesn't have to make sense

still you turn me on

#micropoetry No. 4

Continuing the challenge to keep writing poems of 144 characters or less. Here are three more #micropoems. Poetry for twitter 🙂

1.

my finger is on the trigger

needle is in the vein

my blood is on my hands

my soul is in disarray



2.

lost is the answer

question remains’ uncertain

all that is certain

is mortality



3.

red mist clears

sun breaks through the clouds

my soul is in my hands

red poppies look beautiful

in the cold morning light

#micropoetry No. 3

Continuing the challenge to keep writing poems of 144 characters or less. Here are three more #micropoems. Poetry for twitter 🙂

 

1.

a moment in time

when worlds collide

when lovers unite

chaos and disorder

we gaze into this abyss

we see life, love

lust and eternity

 

2.

the beat of your heart

touch of your tongue

heat of your skin

silk of your hair

welcome to the seduction arcade

 

3.

dew glistens across the valley

casting fast disappearing rainbows

chased by bleeding colours across the sky

a new palette of shades awaits

this ephemeral beauty

must not escape
