_______________


sometimes i walk
without my shadow following
with closed eyes
my spirit is on call wandering
in the black of time
it glides over the sea
not mindful of its mercurial height
until the zigzagging drop
became the close-mouthed dawn

War

i hear the danger
i see the flames
black clouds from the grounds
writing names to blame

machines roared
buildings destroyed
a place in distress
voices in paranoid

if i am dreaming
please wake me up
let me see my own shadow
taking care of myself

i heeded my screams
my shouts of fear
the hope of survival
was drowning in tears

a war borne in despair
fearful of people near by
a man sitting on his chair
alone, lonely, living in lies

catch the shadow of your dream
build your castle in thin humid air
assemble an image from your vision
and swallow my likeness into your fantasy

tear off a page from your version of creation
invent the characters of an admirable royalty

as the light shone coming from the sky
the story that about to begin
vanished as your senses ascended
into the heavens reaching the sun
and on earth
interacted with the souls of Men.

I remember your name…

the rain fell on my lap
it burned my skin
it was colored red
breathing…

sleepless nights came
caressing my dreams
like the hammock of eternity
swaying…

morning sighs of echoes
dropped in my ears
rocking my heart
listening…

i shut my eyes up
my mind was awakened
the place where we met
special memories were set

when i left for home
i carried your shadow
but when the morning came
you left your smiles becoming the past

yet i see you in my coffee cup
gently smiling as i picked it up
you slowly walked back in my memory
when i remember your name…

i remember, i remember
the day you walked out of my life
your lovely smiles returned when
i remembered your name…

Struggling…

by : Bacardi Gold
02/Oct/2020

floating on the water
moving but getting nowhere
shadow of a man
littered by fire
a shadow coping for a breath
arms struggling
rallying for changes
day should be a day
night should be a night
freeing himself from the aridity of existence
to enjoy life’s abundance
triumph is not a chance
it is in hard work that triggers success…




The Shadow, lust of their desires…

Photo by Hoang Loc on Pexels.com
In a flash of surprise
as i looked on the clear spot
in a place not far from my distance
a dark figure cast on the floor
head came out intercepting light 
from the side of the couch's head board 

first it was one, as i thought
later the head became two
came from the chest 
of the first shadow
proverbial pair, man and woman

it was a pleasant scene
kissing on the face and lips
caressing each others hair
then it became so torrid
as if it would not last

the romancing was long 
exchanging places, endless it seemed
without pause, without a breathing space
as if i was the one who would get drown  
in the sweetness of their exchanges

froth from one's mouth
i could feel the excitement 
from their hearts
the lust of their desires
the sensuality
the thirst

soon, the shadow got tired
they held each others lips 
then caressed
wiped each others lips 
with the woman's scarf 
with the man's hankie
then embraced
then a little talk

as they stood from the wide couch
little by little each face came to the light
but why i was the one who felt so nervous
afraid? annoyed? tense? shy?
a mixed of unfamiliar feelings
odd or baffling as i sensed familiarity

then the truth has been unfolded
the woman, the lady
the girl, it's her
she's my girl, my lady, my woman

as they went passed me
i called out her name
the response was silence not knowing me
my heart wept and prepared a revenge
drastic times call for drastic measures
i won't cry over spilt milk
damage has been done
it's over...

CHASING

looking for your love

gone into the thick of crowd

chasing a shadow
