We Met in the Rain | Poetry Collaboration with Cassa Bassa

When we were lonely, we met in the rain.
We only stood and stared at each other.
We shared comfort in misery and pain.
And in the raindrops, our tears found cover. . .

Our own silence was louder than the storm.
But we found heat in the palms of our hands.
You became the jacket to keep me warm.
Is this love? My anxiety expands.

But you only love me when you’re lonely.
You only call me when you are in pain.
You no longer call me like you know me.
I guess this is how it feels to “betray.”

Friend, there’s times and seasons for everything.
For both being away and to embrace.
The monsoon season gave no covering.
When it subsided we both felt out of place.

But every time I met your tear filled gaze.
My reflection was nowhere in hiding.
My heart sank deep into a hopeless place.
I prayed for our friendship never ending.

Popcorn Romance | Poetry Collaboration with Cassa Bassa

Third time’s a charm! I’m happy to present my THIRD collaboration with Cassa Bassa from “Flicker of Thoughts!” This one is called “Popcorn Romance.” Have you ever been in a “Popcorn Romance?”

He likes me
He really likes me
He really really likes me!
All clouds in the sky is everything wonderful in paradise
His smile makes Zac Efron’s fake
His eyes are a candy store I am lost in
His humour is the centre of an amusement park
His kisses melt on my lips like pink fairy floss
He makes me feel like buttercups
And butterflies dance in my stomach
As I sip from his cup of cola
I hope our saga never ends

Three months bubblegum romance
Bursts forth a rich flavour
artificial sugar induced decay
Leaves exposed nerve toothache
buttercups lead to a stomach ache
Just like butterflies lead to indigestion
Too much cola – I’m too wired to sleep
And this tired saga needs a finale. . .

Our short lived romance is like popcorn
Never lasts to the end of the movie before they’ve gone stale
What I first craved is now just a headache
And I’m ready to go home
As I leave, I turn and give one last glance
Hey, you never know when you’ll crave popcorn again

Part Two of Single Lovers Explain Why They’re Single | Poetry Collaboration with Yassy

She dated her hare
They lay their hearts a-bare
He writes, in rush
With Michelangelo brush
On easel with no inch to spare.

But, shrieking with a shatter,
Her cup goes splitter-splatter.
The clumsy cursed
That lovely versed
Now latte’s on the latter.

To Venice on carrot stick,
A charmed Gondola trick.
On Grande-Canal
Sing lover’s chorale
And guitars played double quick.

But the night was getting late,
His lyre induced headache.
His heart-cloying
His voice-annoying
Arrivaderci, date.
