Cosmic Calamities

Moving on down my street
I see people I won’t ever meet
Think of her, take a breath
Feel the beat in the rhythm of my steps
And sometimes it’s a sad song…

~*~

GRADIENT

Get out of my head

And make your home in my stars

I won’t mind at all.

~*~

EBONY

Black holes and kisses

Hurricanes rest in our bed

Secrets for the moon.

~*~

OPALESCENT

Sunshine and smoke fog

You crawl past astral scorpions

Dance lyres in cold fires.

~*~

FACSIMILES

I’m made of strangers

And andromeda’s starlight

And constellations.

~*~

FADED

Sweet blue gravity

Am I still your reverie

Or did you let go?

~*~

Make everyday worth all of the pain
That I have gone through
And mama I’ve been cryin’
‘Cause things ain’t how they used to be
She said “the battle’s almost won
And we’re only several miles from the sun.”

Odes And Dedications

I’d write you a million letters

You left me at a loss for words

Halfway around the world, yet

You stole my breaths unfurled

.

I’ll compose until my hands ache

And my quill protests ‘no more’

Until I dried up all the ink I have

And literates stop keeping score

.

I’d write you in ballads and sonnets

Limericks, haikus, and silly rhymes

I’d write you odes and lengthy epics

That shall withstand the test of time

.

And all the troubadours and minstrels

Will speak of your name for centuries

Immortalised between yellowing pages

Of prose and verse and lines of poetry

.

I’d write you a million novels and books

‘Til I run out of words to use in every language

And even then, it still won’t fully express

Just how much you truly made this bard change.

A Series Of Strange Incidents Occurring Within and Outside the Walls of 221B Baker Street

(……….I don’t even know…)

~*~

A GAME OF CAT AND MOUSE

Chase me, one, two, three

Scurry, hurry, you and John

Easy boys……..no rush.

~*~

IN SICKNESS AND IN HEALTH

Who did I marry?

A double missionary

Who are you, Mary?

~*~

A FUN HOBBY

A case of cheap thrills

Another chalk up the kill

Pastime, if you will.

~*~

LESTRADE JUST WANTS A BREAK

I tire of such games

Huge bombings and explosions

Not my division.

~*~

WHO IS MYCROFT HOLMES?

Diogenes club member

Or, if circumstances rise

British Government.

~*~

MOLLY’S WOES

Hair done, lipstick lush

Cold corpses, science, cheek blush

Sherlock, notice me.

~*~

#1 TOURIST SPOT

Buckingham Palace

Home of monarchs, nicked ashtrays,

Detectives in sheets…

~*~

GOODBYE BRITANNIA

Bye, Mrs. Hudson

Baker Street will be empty

And England will fall.

~*~

KING AND KEY

I got my own crown

And the key to everywhere

Let the fun begin.

~*~

THE BRUISED VICAR AND THE WOMAN

Man punched ’round the clock

Secretive woman defrocked

Shhh…I am S H E Rlocked.

~*~

WILDEST STAG PARTY

Beakers of lager

A giggling game of guessing

Off to clue for looks.

~*~

NEARLY GAVE MRS. HUDSON A HEART ATTACK BUT WORTH IT

Adventure beckons

Or I could sit here waiting…

I say, damn my leg!

~*~

SUITING UP

Big coat, short Watson

Blue scarf, deerstalker hat

Ready for action.

~*~

THE POOR LANDLADY

Eyeballs in their tea

Chemicals, brutality

A head in the fridge.

~*~

#MORIARTYLIVES

Bullet in my mouth

Bloody grin on my cold face

Fake deaths—such a drag.

Cosmic Synesthesia

You spoke a word, life began
Told oceans where to start and where to end
You set in motion time and space
But still you come and you’re calling me by name…

~*~

BLIPPED BANG THEORY

Her soft astral breaths

And mind of dark energy

Formed a universe.

~*~

NIGHTMARES & NOCTURNE

Twisting and turning

Lunar blanket comforting

Conscience relaxing.

~*~

YOU CAN…

Grasp the stars in place

Knock my gravity away

Break the milky way.

~*~

WATCHFUL SATELLITE

Did you know, Juno

Jupiter’s never faithful

Yet you still try so?

~*~

SPACE RACE

Racing on spaceships

Bumping on stark asteroids

Orbits to nowhere.

~*~

THEATRICAL REVOLUTION

Chains keep me in place

Watch planetary stage plays

Audience lost in haze.

~*~

NIGHTFALL

Sundown, distant frown

Of the dusk’s shimmering gown

Evening waltzes soon.

~*~

PERMANENT PRINTS

Hey now, you say how

Algid words like moonswept wind

Footprints left within.

~*~

[G]ASTRONOMICAL DELIGHT

Taste the velvet night

Savoury sips of sunlight

Food for our soul.

~*~

LAKESIDE SUNRISE

Basked glory, daybreak

Dusty shores and empty lake

Peace in breaths you take.

~*~

If you can hold the stars in place
You can hold my heart the same
Whenever I fall away
Whenever I start to break
So here I am, lifting up my heart
To the one who holds the stars…

Nature’s Dulcet Tones

RAINBOW RUNNER

Pulled onto the sky

By last tears of silken clouds

Ribbon of colours.

~*~

MOTHER NATURE’S DRESS

Upon where we step

Flowers, trees, plants, blossoming

Earth; Nature’s soft skin.

~*~

FIELD OF DREAMS

On the ground I lie

Blades of grass, shamrock so deep

Guide me into sleep.

~*~

NAUTICAL NONSENSE

Splashing and crashing

The water scintillating

Waving you goodbye.

~*~

MOONBEAMS

Sphere with a dark side

Gleaming white teeth grinning down

What does your smile hide?

~*~

THE LAST DAYS OF WINTER

Glaring sun perched proud

Buds of green as it melts, thaws;

Winter’s bone-white snow.

~*~

FIREFLY

Fireflies will guide you

In the valley of darkness

Stars below the skies.

~*~

SUMMER SNAPSHOTS

Tepid weak-willed winds

Ice cream melting by the pool

Sluggish lazy bones.

~*~

LITTLE RAINDROP

See it falling down

Hear it splash, a tranquil sound

Bye, little raindrop.

~*~

UNDERGROUND HEAVEN

I plant little stars

In the hope that they would spring

Into dazzling hope.

Wasting Some More Time With Haikus

SILKEN PEDESTAL

Grace and elegance

The compassion and romance

Lost by sycophants.

~*~

ARCTIC RAIN

Levy on the pain

And sing songs of Arctic rain

Chills that bite the heart.

~*~

AND ON HE GOES

Whisper and slither

Dark secrets under covers

On the devil goes.

~*~

SHAVEN VEINS

I asked for a trim

But you must have misheard, and

My heart you severed.

~*~

ERROR404

The lights flashed crimson

As my data screamed ERROR:

EMOTIONS NOT FOUND.

~*~

AMY

Ginger hair flaming

All cowardice dissolving

And she keeps running.

~*~

FAUX PAS

On they dance, doing

Tarantella, with razor

Blades inside their shoes.

~*~

BITTERSWEET DRINK

Stir my feelings up

Adding sugar to my cup

Toothaches and mistakes.

~*~

A DASH OF NOVOCAINE

Lose honour, gain shame

Drown myself in Novocaine

Why does it still hurt?

~*~

LETTERS FROM BEYOND

Scratching out letters

The stamp always delivers

To infinity.

Wasting Yet More Time With Haikus

~*~

CAT BURGLAR

She stole four items

My heart, my soul, my mind, and

My very last breath.

~*~

SILVER WINGS

Spreading so slowly

Unfurling like softest cloth

Fluttering, flapping.

~*~

BROKEN TRUST

I gave you my trust

But you held it way too tight

Until it shattered.

~*~

DREAM(E)SCAPE

I wish you and me

Wouldn’t be separated

By reality.

~*~

CAUGHT IN THE ACT

Feigning innocence

Smiling angelically

While holding the knife.

~*~

SMILE!

What once was a man

Now has a prominent smile

On his rotting skull.

~*~

SUPERNOVA LOVE

My heart was a star

But then you made it explode

Now it’s a black hole.

~*~

SCARe

She showed me her scars

But what surprised me the most

Was that she survived.

~*~

UNREQUITED FEELINGS

Like planting flowers

But they only bloom brightly

When you’re not around.

~*~

SNOWFLAKES

Crystalline snowdrops

With intricate patterns etched

Nature’s work of art.

Wasting more time with Haikus

(So. Uninspired.)

~*~

Spiraling system

Clockwork imagination

Sometimes it freezes.

~*~

Feel the need to write

Brain does not cooperate

Laughing at my fight.

~*~

I’m a sinful man

The darkness is my mistress

Do I deserve sun?

~*~

Mopping out the gore

Along the white padded walls

This is horrorcore.

~*~

She bade them goodbye

As She destroyed the planet

Mother Earth is done.

~*~

Burst into colours

The falling leaves of autumn

Paint the dull weather.

~*~

Bound in chains, restart

My heart refuses to do

Now we’re worlds apart.

~*~

He broke his promise

Like scintillating mirrors

The shards wounded her.

~*~

The clock yelled at him

“Your deadline is nearly up”

As he went flatline.

~*~

She folded her faith

And tucked it in her pocket

Until she lost it.

Wasting my Time with Haikus

(After long weeks of procrastination, I have finally managed to get out of my lazy state and type this in. Here, have some haikus I randomly found in one of my notebooks.)

~*~

BLAZE

I was all alone

When I saw a fiery blaze

Guiding me back home.

~*~

AN INSANE PERSON’S VIEW

Lost in my own world

I have got nothing to hide

Madness all around.

~*~

THE WORLD IS MINE

I rule the whole world

They’ll obey my every word

But I’ve no real friends.

~*~

stuDYING

Blank stare and drooling

That wall seems interesting

I’m wasting my time.

~*~

I AM HOME

I got ran over

Darkness, redness, and whiteness

I’m finally home.

~*~

MASKED

All the time I’m masked

Hidden, wearing a disguise

Hiding my true self.

~*~

SOCIAL NETWORK ZOMBIES

Endless game requests

Facebook, Instagram, Twitter

Attention seekers.

~*~

A MURDERER’S PSALM

Oh how fun it is

To hear them cry out in pain

So let the blood rain.

~*~

STALKED

I see silhouettes

Creepy eyes always staring

I am getting scared…

~*~

THE GRASSES’ CRIES

I am always pulled

Sat on, trampled on, ignored

They don’t see my worth.

~*~
