Curved Painting


Have you ever been to a well with talking waters

That breathe life into your soul with silent words

That love feels as sure as the sun in a hot desert

But can get as cold as dew on a gloomy morning


Have you ever met your heart in someone’s

And thought that reality is a dream

You don’t want to wake up from

Even with its webs entangled around your mind

And storms of wars stir in your world

That you choose to lay in sweet captivity

For the sake of what it makes you feel


I’ve been there

I’ve finished my hair twisting and turning

On a sweaty pillow in the longest nights

Painting pictures of jigsaw puzzle dreams

Connecting dots to create trees of unimaginable realms

The woman


Have you ever found yourself free in a person’s lips

In that moment

Like a blind man’s bliss of his first ever shot at sight

But if the heart’s eyes are closed

You can never really meet love

Nor hear her pass by you

Even in the wildest ride on top of a skyscraper’s cliff

Or a journey to the deepest root of the tallest tree


Can our souls grow wings then

So we could plant mustard seeds

Of the sweetest things

So we could be true to our hidden nakedness

And marry reality with fantasy

Spread the painting brush smoothly

Across the pregnant canvas

On which our queer merriment gains shape

With different colours, carelessly

So we could be one with ourselves

And with God

    I am extremely inspired with your writing talents as smartly as with
    the layout for your weblog. Is that this a paid subject or did you modify it your self?
    Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a great weblog
    like this one these days..

    When I look at your website in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening
    in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a
    difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
