I marvel at the dexterity he withheld my heart's crinkled pages Smoothing the craggy edges Left by scars of excrutiating farce. Like a connoisseur, he painted my darkness in splashes of luminescence, He became my beacon in gloom.
How he weave vibrancy in my life's humdrum Is still an unsolvable conundrum. I just found myself waking up With my dormant chest organ finally beating His name a melody in each thumping Singing the song of my soul.
I guess I could never unveil the enigma of love For its hidden depth is beyond any mortal's reach of cognizance.
PHILIREE Etymology: came from the words PHILIPPINES(a country that was colonized and enslaved before) and FREE
Definition: (noun) freedom from oppression and slavery
Once there was a lady of grace and dignity Even Aphrodite's jealous of her beauty Her progenies live in peace and prosperity Until colonizers conquered her for centuries.
Her territory pillaged, her beauty defaced Her children abused and enslaved Parched throats thirsting for liberty of light As her warriors' battle cries echoed in the fight.
Oceans of blood and tears were spilled Countless lives were killed Before her independence was at last regained.
And now, The lady is garb in a hue of peaceful blue With a skirt of patriotism in crimsom Crowned with stars and sun of her lands Looking at her offsprings with delight She tasted freedom in exhilaration Ah, sweet Philiree! She whispered as she softly sighs.
SAUDADE-a profound melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves.
SAUDADE I always love the night For it conceals my sadness In the blanket of its darkness. Oh how the moon's illuminance Made me think of your radiance When we used to dance under the moon Sprinkles of sand clinging on our feet in dune.
I can still feel the ghost of your touch Stroking my skin in an embrace of such Your voice still lingers in Zephyr's caress The gentle whispers so serene to my senses. Every moment so nostalgic I wanted to weep And weep I did with my grief so deep Calling your name in the abyss of silence.
But I suddenly stopped when I felt a tingle In my right hand bloomed a rose in single How apt that its painted in blue My pain reflected in its hue. Its scent reminded me of broken tales resurfacing How could it not be? For its the aroma of Our love ripped by death without warning.
But worry not my darling, for I shall I wipe These tears in a swipe Knowing you're always here with me Is a comfort I shall forever carry Till my mind grow weary Till my hair turns grey Till my soul drifted away.
CHARYBDIS- a whirlpool off the coast of Sicily personified in Greek mythology as a female monster SCYLLA- a nymph changed into a monster in Greek mythology who terrorizes mariners in the Strait of Messina. GEHENNA- a place or state of misery
Ocean of Love
I cast any remnants of doubt hovering In the deepest recesses of the bottomless ocean As I take your hand to sail destiny's quest Riding the waves of exhilaration in its crest. Embroiled in the voyage of love we take Discovering the treasure of emotions we awake.
Unfortunately the sea has its own adversity. We nearly drowned in the yawning death of our Charybdis Our inner monsters starring in our nightmares. I nearly lost your hold as we stumbled upon Scylla Its jagged teeth and claws bore Gehenna Tearing our hearts in excrutiating grips Painting the azure sea in scarlet of misery.
Yet you know what's astounding above all? Throughout those turbulent tides, we fought to stay afloat, And emerge wholly as one amid the broken shells of our wrecked selves. Coz everytime we look at each other's eyes We saw the reflection of our souls Imprinted in the core of our shimmering orbs. Darling, Im drowned in the ocean of your love Yet I'll happily sink for Im forever yours to have.
The momentum it gains with zephyr making creepers dance is antonym to the dormancy it attains with him on one side and me hanging on the other wall.
I hang there like hangers in your wardrobe waiting to be covered by a familiar cloth or say aroma but the familiar one is resistant to the charmant beauty that lies naked as he is the one who stole her best of sides cracking it's edges and now awkward enough to embrace his sins. Silence accepts the sins making everything else still.

Occasionally I like to write my own lyrics to a song that already exists. It's challenging, but a lot of fun too. This is a lyrical rewrite I've penned for a song written and performed by the American country singer/songwriter Travis Tritt. The words '10 feet tall and bulletproof' are credited solely to Travis Tritt. All other words/lyrics are my own. Thank you for reading. Blessings, Carolyn
