Ready 2 Right

Words Are all I have…

Just for Kicks

baby

At first

You were

Just two lines on a stick

 

Then

The heartbeats

Felt more optimistic

 

Soon

My mornings

Were sick

 

Later

My bulging belly began

To itch

 

Everyday

I Prayed

Just for Kicks

 

Some days

Were dazed

By your tricks

 

They say

Tis Braxton Hicks

 

Hitherto

Well versed

In our mutual ticks

 

Henceforth

Impatience

Will run thick

 

I’m waiting

Come soon

Make it quick

Waiting to Welcome You

I hope it’s warm inside

Were your eyes wet every time I cried?

Did you feel parched when my lips dried?

When I watched my weight did you feel denied?

Every step I took

Every move I made

Did it feel like a roller coaster ride?

You are safe inside

For in my heart you reside

We are all waiting

Waiting outside

With minds and arms

Open wide

By The very excited yet anxious Closet Poet

Come Soon

 

womb_paradise

I can feel you inside

Come soon

It’s wonderful outside

 

The skies are still blue

There are butterflies in every hue

The grass still green

On either side

 

The seas are still blue

There are fish in every hue

The eyes still dream

On either side

 

Birds are still flying

Lovers still sighing

New-borns still crying

Grand Parents still dying

On either side

 

Both sides await you

Are you ardent inside?

Come soon

It’s wonderful outside

Come soon

Time’s Up

 

SmP296

What’s left of me?

A few stifled breaths

A few beads of tears

Not many people who care

Not much black in my hair

My time is up

Not yet

Not yet

 

What’s holding me back?

A few bottled-up desires

A few pent-up yearns

None of this seems fair

None for me will despair

My time is up

Not yet

Not yet

 

 

What’s it that beckons?

A few sparks of light

A few streams of white

Release me

Don’t

Seize me

I give me consent

Go ahead

Relent

No fret

No fret

No Kidding

beach-party-The-Wonder-of-Children.com-by-lucelle-raad

Eyes teeming with question marks

Smiles and sighs

And

Darndest remarks

Soothing us

While we tremble with fear

Making amends

With a crocodile tear

Laughter that deepens with every

Dimple

A much needed reminder

That life’s so

Simple

By The Closet Poet

Comatose

ASC_0022_2

What’s Left of me…

No Grandiose

No Artifice

No Gimmicks

No Tactics

Not even Fossils

Nor Relics

 

Don’t diagnose me

Just overdose me

I’m morose

I’m comatose

I’m ready

Ready to decompose

Ready to transpose

Bid the world

My final

Adios….

Tough Cookie to Crack

f cook

You are Fortuna’s favourite child

On you Tyche will constantly smile

Abundantia will abundance bring

Felicitas’s coins will make you sing

Lakshmi will adorn your household

On these lines if you are not yet sold

I can’t let my brains go to ruin and wrack

You are just another tough cookie to crack

Bother-ly Love

              

brother-sister

Your persistent premise

You’re older and wise

You’ve been there

And done that in

A world that’s not nice

 

By virtue of years

I must lend you my ears

Whilst you perpetually propound:

You are still a seed in the ground

 

When your approval I seek

You tell me I’m juvenile and meek

When my follies I concede

You most gleefully agree:

I told you so

You are much too naïve

 

I wait for the stage

When you express without rage

I wait for that juncture

When you’re my anchor not sinker

 

I would never misspell

Brother as Bother

If I felt quite swell

With no fear of smother

I’m Game

I am a sitting duck

You need not

Glass or range

 

I am your happy hunting ground

You may well call off your hound

 

And stop chasing high and low

Lay down your arrow and bow

 

I am happily in the trap

Your quest here can wrap

 

You are my Hunter

I am you Prey

Master Chef

master_chef_1a585939b6e94c4ee70427edc13999f3

We all grew up in your kitchen garden

You picked us all

Carefully

One by One

 

You put me in the freezer first

Some you used to quench your thirst

Some you poured in the kettle to boil

Some you covered with a golden foil

Some you let the processor run

Some you set in the microwave oven

Some you placed under the fine grater

Some you turned to paste in the mortar

Some you broke with a large nut cracker

Some you served others to feed on a platter

Some you allowed to joyfully toast

Some you forced to become sunday roast

Some you poached in the pressure cooker

Some you grilled on an iron skewer

 

Hello Mr Chef it’s not fair

I’m still in the freezer

Gasping for air…
