Caught

Poem By Kristina Louisa Carr

Is it she who you see when you are dreaming
Or are your words empty as you are scheming
Your voice is monotone when you call her name
Your smile does not reach your eyes as you claim

I notice that your reactions are non-committal
Your excuses are frequent asking for acquittal
Your manner is nonchalant when you call her
And you stand your grounds with connoisseur

She is my friend and she deserves protection
So I will scrutinize your moves and rejections
I am not clear why you are stringing her along
Using her kindness and doing her all wrong

The weekends you reserve for your friends
And when she is sad you act as making amends
But you are playing while she really trusts you
Just be aware that I know and follow through

Before Dark

Dusk right before dark is my favorite time of each day
The dim light feels as if I am only in this world halfway
Right then it is time for shadows taking over the light
And colors fade slowly to shades of black and white

Rain

Rain is electricity for my soul
Like a light switch turning on my emotions
The rain - soft, wet, warm embracing
Water in the desert of my world

Drowning

My smile has been declined
The laughter in my world silenced
I feel stone weights around my ankles
And tomorrow seems like a year away

Three Some

Your vision in my head is a deceit
You're not the one that I wanted
The beginning of the affair was sweet
But what I feel now is being taunted

Good Bye

The morning after we said our final good bye
What I remember is a single tear from your eye
Today it hit me that I can't call you anymore
To tell you how my day was and it's you I adore

Lagos

City of noise, fumes, dirt and corruption
City of beaches, money, luxury and lust
A city where your wisdom is lost
Where serenity is covered in sweat and blood
