Evocative

Dreams
wrapped in infinite
colours, lift
from my upturned
   hands,

Weightless,
they morph into
an array of shapes,
   breathing in
   life and light,

Stories
overflow with words
untold, bleeding
fantasy onto awaiting
   fingertips,

No matter what I do
   my mind is
an open playground,
   ever beckoning
   for me to play.

Painted Lies

Layer
   upon layer
I allowed you to paint
your elaborate lies
all over me,

Closing my eyes
for the truths I spotted
through the cracks
   you forgot
to cover up,

Desperately trying
   to ignore
the adverse reaction
I would eventually
   grow for you.

Soft Spot

Having
burned myself
once too many,
I know I’m no longer
   easy to read
with just one look,

Still,
for those who have
earned my trust,
   My heart’s pages
   are an ever
      open book.
