Tone: Queen of my board

Bishops may pray while rooks withstand
Forces of the knights and swords of pawns
But I am blessed to stand beside
Your enthral grace in sands of time.

Against tides and odds, it would take
The love we share, as queen and king
To survive all that comes our way,
If this life; is, a game of chess….

You are my choice, nothing or less
And nothing more, just you my love;
Through thick and thin, checkmates and stalls
The sun will shine right on our moon.

And as the queen on my chessboard
Should these small pawns reach finish lines
I wouldn’t crown or make them queens
For you are all I need on board.

The beauty debates

We take some pictures
A group photograph
We hit upload tabs
Going after likes
We swipe for comments
Complimenting us;
Each person focus
On self compliments.

Awareness drops low
Self illusion rises
“Others are ugly”
Debate continues
Personal mirrors
Acknowledges self
As finest of all
Hotter than the Sun.

Whereas all images
Hanging in timeframe
From holistic view
All have pretty looks
Yet we are all bias
Looking only self
But all; zooming out
The beauty in all.

Nightingale Alley

Sitting on rocks by the beach
River flows with a force
That could erode an alley.

Every day thunder strikes
Can you hear the nightingale
As it sings melodiously

Do not hear but listen deep
The legs are forced open in pain
Listen beyond its nocturnal songs

The peaceful River is a mirage
There are tears in tone of its voice
It cries out, begging for help.

A few minute pleasure, a leisure?
Hello male, and hello females
There is no right in being rapist

Seek consent, it might be yours
Wait a minute, think about it,
What if you were your own victims.

Sonnet: Rocks and rivers

This breathe beholds short stick to hold
Run out of luck, still like a rock,
The rivers flows, yesterday played
Aloud in heads, all the good times
Shared in the shirt of wine and dirt.

Tomorrows lives and also leaves
Breathe are fooled by pretty tools
Fighting for wealth from width to breath
Daring last feet for wine and dirt
Wearing the shirt dust never fulls.

This breathe beholds short stick to hold
Run out of luck still like a rock,
As rivers flows, stars also glows
With regrets yet, none dish the dirt.

Tone: Pyrexia

In the midst of a warm embrace
We lost track of time, on a race;
Tall shadows grew to separate gloves
But we glued hands, against the cloves.

Resting our heads on the pillow
The breeze blew through open windows
Caressing from our heads to toes
We transcended to flesh and bones.

Beneath the thick all white bedsheets
Comfort was all we felt in shifts
We were the victims of our slime
Sticky touches, irony of dime.

But before we knew it was dawn
Aurora spread over the lawn
Ten more minutes was our demand
Sluggishly rolling on the bed.

Feeling to stop hold was not fine
Inevitably, rise and shine
For daily bread, we had to go
But as we did, the fever rose.

Just one poem

Just one retweet, just one repost
Just one reblog, can do the trick.

Just one person, maybe strangers
Can provide dry grassland for world fire.

Not many roasts but one broadcast
Just one mention, can do the trick.

Oh winds of my sail, where hides thee
Come wild, come redirect the ship

To the promise land, come take my hand
Into mansions and opening doors

Doors of greatness for a breakthrough
So I shall be, new kid in town.

But for now I spill inks on sheets
Writing poetry, painting my hearts

Imploding and exploding until
The light decides to shines on me.

Merry Christmas from Vinzpoetry.wordpress.com

Thorny Christmas trees

Jiggle bells
Days like this
I turn cold
Seeing leaves
Tall; short trees.

Jiggle bells
On each branch
I see crowns
Made of thorns
Round His head.

Jiggle bells
Cross from woods
Woods from trees
Trees of thorns
An irony.

Jiggle bells
I detest
Decorated
Leafy trees
At his birth

Jiggle bells
Do you know
He was hung
On naked tree
Till he ghost.

Christmas Fireworks

Red shades and shinning bulbs I see
Several boxes pilling as hills
Seasons like this, I come out free
All shades of flames to cherish
Light me up before I perish
Lonely Christmas is not my wish.

Take down the walls and bricks of dree
For Christmas brings my perfect flee
Fireworks outside, am so pretty
All shades of flames to cherish
Light me up before I perish
Lonely Christmas is not my wish.

Underneath the big Christmas tree
My melodies echo and glee
Mountain highs I spark my fees
All shades of flames to cherish
Light me up before I perish
Lonely Christmas is not my wish.

Floras, Skies and Seas

Fountain of peace,
Forest of cheese
Focus on blue.
Naked are seeds
Nacreous are clouds
Nature never
Perishes in places
Precisely where,
Plain blues and greens
Stay clean and true
Self flourishing-
-Sprouting so free.

Ostrich

Unlike the flying birds, on lands I roam
Bravery; I have the heart of a lion
Skin stubborn like those of an hippopo…
Like a tiger, I fight to the last breath
And when I sting, I sting better than bees.

Come see, I run faster than lights and jet
Science rocket; my dreams are Elephants
A million times larger than sun and whales
My goals are far taller than the mountains
Hence you see I am reckon with the best.

Unlike the nest, I can not fly like birds
But all my hatched eggs loves my weakness
Please I beg you, never look down on me
For am not just a bird but Aves ruler
Born not to fly but to run on the earth.
