shayarisms4lovers June18 199 - Tailwinds


we gambled the sun. on wooden bridges and missing magicians. the illusion broke. the distance loud. as we listened for home. paper salamanders chasing plastic worms. in the spaces where we left the words out. answers came and went. none of them stuck. our voices melting ice. our fingers fraying ropes. as gravity yawned. and […]

Freedom’s Jest

the years bit down. sharp fangs in tender bones. we hung onto the math. surviving on the persistence of skin. the resilient stretch. the hungry spoil. the defeated give. as it bends and tears to finally let us in. the windows shudder. moan. with the mercies of the sun. the hill swallows us. in gravity’s […]

Fortune’s Thumb

time spent us. in shallow puddles. in broken skins. we were still counting the miles long after they had forgotten us. we were negotiating our seldom epiphanies. running in the rain. ignoring the distance. as the road bit down. time spent its treasons. touch waged its wars. it was over or had not yet begun.

In Her Eyes

By JG I see the potential for forever Subtle glimpses of lifetimes spent together I see the heart of a mother Tempered with the mind of a queen I see an intelligent, competent conscious woman Made for nothing less than a king Strength and vulnerability are also there Along with passion and compassion And if […]

Chapter Three

She counted the shadows as the ground passed beneath her. Her stride a blur of music and grief. The miles came and went. Easy. Hard. Confident. Her breath even as her muscles faltered to keep pace. The world a strange invader. Memory a steep staircase. Dense with velvet and regret. Uneven corners. Weighted bridges. Obstacles […]
