Spoken Word Poetry Collaboration: Implore – by Lauren M. Hancock and Navin Manik

Recently, I had this lovely opportunity to work with my dear friend, Lauren of Lauren M. Hancock Poetry and Prose, to write & record a piece together. Lauren is a poet, painter, violinist and above all, a wonderful, sweet & kind being. Please visit her blog, where you’ll find her heartfelt, soulful, raw poetry, prose & spoken word and her beautiful artwork. My gratitude to Lauren for reaching out to me, to make this happen.

Implore

The breaths I take
The steps I sway
When I dance on my feet
My ground is change

The heights I stare
The case is space
The light has shades
The dark isn’t just pain

I see the sane
When I saw the chain
I tear the deep
When I drop the waves

The colours I blend
The Universe I paint
The eyes then glare
The divine through pen

I expand upon
an inner sense
of personal justice
social soul well meant

I know I know
the ability for
personal growth

is well rooted deep within,
for every passing second
my efforts are tirelessly sown,

my chest expands
my heart, it flows
rich with breath, mighty effort
stallion-like strength –
continuous insistence,
and sound temperament.

our steps in time
pirouetting groundwork
yours and mine

our knowledge together
brought closely in life
we stare down the precipice
and soar, divine,

unknowingly yet aware
we become entwined
intent and more
this World we explore

for reaching our Universe’s heights
sights and sounds
enriching our abilities
our minds implore.

Spoken Word – Transparent

The sky paints this transparent scene
The clouds are floating freely
The sun rays pass through the beams
The nature of magical energies

The airwaves sync the melody
The highs & lows flow exquisitely
The ripples are echoing the sea
The ground is rooting my feet

The track is ripping my skin
The layers are burning to thin
The time is watching it still
The drops are cleansing the film

The naked is pure not obscene
The change is to unchain the theme
The patterns are revealing the unseen
The scars are opening the deep

The seam is melting cracked piece
The noise is filtered to peace
The voice I break is to feel
The rhyme I ride is to be

Spoken Word – Eyeing my Phase

The heart is eyeing my phase while I am crying
The air in my body is heavy the way I am sighing
The mind of mine is red diamond when I am mining

The fire is burning my track that I trace on thin icing
The demons are scratching my face while they’re dancing
My feet are loosing the balance, so I’m simply sliding

Time is chasing the zones that once were hiding
The walls of this form are cracking & now they’re falling
I’m unchaining my case that was suppressing the deeper calling

My voice is whispering to burning stars as they keep shining
The soul is grounding my whole in soil as if I am dying
This all is enlightening the core, it’s so exciting


Dear readers,

After Reliving, I took a time off from WP….and now I’m coming back slowly….I’ve certainly missed you & your lovely writings / art….I will try to catch up but if I can’t, then a new day & a new beginning. Here’s my new poem / spoken word – Eyeing my Phase.
