»Being in the "Arodise"«

by Maureen Direro, October 11, 2012

The only paradise I know,
always wants to make me happy,
but something always interrupts.
I miss it all the time,
wish I could for once turn into it's source of joy,
wish it could see this one and clam up with joy,
and never forget it.
Never thought I could be in such a place,
one so warm yet cold,
able to warm me up,
yet cool me from its warmth,
a place that cares for me wish there was a way,
then maybe I can take that way to "Arodise"...
The only paradise I know,
full of love,
full of desires,
always trying to make others happy...
Who keeps it happy?
Who goes an extra mile for it?
Who knows it at all?...
The paradise of nothing but love and at times lust...
It has been crushed before,
may it not crush because of me.
Loving its ways it causes something in me to live.
May it never leave my side as I will dwell inside it...
Arodise the only paradise I know...

A simple hey would make my day, / but instead you keep silent / yet you always online. / Treating me like I lured you to my life, / I was single and happy, / Praying for my child, / Working for my child... / Studying for my child, / You chose to come, / Bulldozed yourself into my life. / Now when I need you  sign in to read more »

»My hands covered in blood«

My hands were covered with blood, / I killed a life, / I killed an innocent life... / It wasn't the kill of knives nor guns, / But it was of words... / I worked hard to harbour this feeling of inadequate inside of me, / But it has always been there... / My beauty, my style, my sense of humour was never  sign in to read more »
