An Albatross flies above the sea, Black and white and showered with the sailors envy, Coast to coast it goes, meeting the travelling crows. Free in one context, trapped in another, Powerful according to the delusions of the sailors, Free to roam the sky, but if it goes beyond, it dies.
75 years of life left to die. In the first five we are nothing but moving stones, Sculpted and eroded by family and strangers. 70 years left to sleep as bones. As partially sculpted David’s, “Is this too late to change?” we think. Time might be an illusion, but can still assassinate. Just realize life … More Alazia
I was a girl sold by my parents to the old, “It’s okay, you’ll be safe here”, they said, Strange men did things to me till I bled, They said they loved me and told me to say it back, Or they hit me until my bones cracked. I have never had a true home, … More Bulgarian prison of mine
A crow flying back and forth, Picking sticks and cotton both, Building a nest on a branches crest, Tired after the day’s work, It decided it needed a rest.

Born to live a life of sleep, Not living anymore in the jungles deep. A façade of cuteness housing fiery instincts. Deceiving humans among some other things.

The Bargained Man A dark man, being inspected, beside, a white man bargains. The Tethered Man A dark man, in a dark mine, tethered to work.
A wise moon, With many faces, Lonely and visible at night, Lonely and hidden by day.
A fiery sun in the sky, Heat and light, it provides. A little too close, A little too far, You die. But by time’s hand, it too has to die.
I stood before the mirror, Staring into my eyes, When I realized it was hard to do. You cannot stare into both your eyes at the same time. You have to choose one. But I had another choice to make. Go into the mirror, Or stay in the room.
Standing on the tower, “I need wings”, I thought, And I felt something close to my shoulders. I jumped, Hoping to fly. “Die”, I heard a voice. Face smashed on the asphalt, And I woke on my floor.
Learn the art of broken pieces, To mend broken cups, plates and pots, Line it with lacquer mixed with gold. Recognizing the history, Repair but don’t disguise.

Two pills in my hand, I don’t know which one to choose, To help me decipher the world, I need somebody to tell me what to do.

Storms raged beyond my walls, And the creature cried hoping I hear its calls. A solitary life I lead, On a lonely Arctic island I lived, Or so I believed. O! I hear a creature beyond these walls. Imprisoned in a prison I built, Fearful of the sounds, I wonder out loud silently, Did the … More An Unfortunate Incident [ Merilion – 1 ]
