Spoken Word – The Edge (republished)

I’m sharing my very first spoken word, that I posted on 10th December 2020 on my WordPress blog. I don’t know why I’m doing so all of a sudden but there could be several reasons – from reminiscence to reflection.

The Edge is a poem about my struggles during that time. On 7th November 2019 I was hit by brain hemorrhage on the right side. Over 1 year had passed by but it was definitely not easy for me to fully accept, understand & live with this new reality. The feeling of broken & repaired at the same time. It just didn’t affect me alone but my surroundings as well, including the family. I could see this struggle on my inner screen as flow of images. So I decided to write those images in the form of this freestyle poetry. These words became so intense, at least in my head, that I felt like recording it in my voice. I didn’t know how to create spoken word back then. I didn’t bother searching it either coz I wanted to create this spoken word immediately, with whatever technical knowledge / tools I had. So I recorded my voice on my phone, created a Powerpoint presentation on my laptop, played the voice recording on it, timed the PP slides to sync with my voice & capture this all as a video through a free screen recorder software. I’m presenting the same original spoken word to you all.

Please put sound on…

I sit sharp on the edge of my bench in the dark with a hatchet in my hand to break open my senses & to claim that my pain in the veins is not vain but insane

But I get so mad & a bit sad when I spread metal scraps on myself coz then I bleed the beads so discreet on my crease to decrease the misery

So I feel quite shaky as if my skin is so thin like a leaf & it starts to burn instantly to create the debris that comes out from the heat of the seed

I’m torn at my core that I feel this need to ease & burn my peace into pieces on the street that’s filled with so many deep & some holes unseen

So I scream in infinity with my fluctuating beat coz I can’t simply breathe & it seems I’m the beast hinged to the scene of the shattered dream

I relapse on my screen coz this all feel so diseased when I see this degree of release & then I step explicitly into the bed of fire to become the deceased

But then I focus on to drop my sores with the source of my scope in this hope that one day I’ll for sure end this whole to simply blow everything to the pure

I published my book on 7th November 2021 – exactly 2 years after the bleeding. It’s my second birth or perhaps the first real one.

I Scribble

When I pick up my pencil
To prick on my surface
Then I bleed real lyrics
That I scribble on the ocean

The ripples I then make
When I hit the epicenter
Is not to trick the senses
But to share my inner vision

The reflection of my face
That bounces on wavy water
Shows me a clear picture
Of the deeper connection

The flare of my phases
Isn’t just burst of emotions
It’s the zen of those learnings
That lits my life with passion

Bittersweetness

(reblogging an updated version)

Some people like the taste of
Bittersweet chocolate and
Some give it just a try coz
The problem is that
Sweet taste disappears so fast & then
Bitter hits the tongue to
Give the sensation of darkness but
You feel like eating some
More bittersweet chocolate to
Get the sweetness back again before
The bitter hits you once more but
This time the difference is that
The bitterness lasts longer so
Either you’ll get addicted to the taste or
It would be hard to enjoy with the slow pace
I’m that bittersweet chocolate entering
In your deep space so
Slide me in and
Bite me into small pieces to
Get that raw taste or
Use your soft hands to
Break me into pieces to
Put me in your lukewarm bowl where
You stir me very gently where
We melt & freeze together slowly to
Make unknown shapes & forms but
If you can’t decide that
You would like the taste coz
It’s difficult for you to
Try something less sweet then
Simply wrap me back and
Hide me somewhere in your space coz
You aren’t ready to handle
The real & raw flavours of
Pure joy & sweet pain well
Perhaps another time but
You must always remember that
You are holding just a portion of this bar and
One thing about me will never change that
I’ll always remain the bittersweet chocolate with
A slightly edgy taste that
Depends on the chemistry between
You & me and
How I was actually made

This Region

I know my brain ain’t no xeon
And perhaps it’s not rendering every bit spot on
But it processes the complex with pure intuition
And my eyes glow as the intense UV neon
They read the hidden with clear vision

The rocks in glass with the golden key on
Unlocking the transparent to create the free zone
The black & white are my preferred crayons
Rubbing them on this paper sheet with me down
Breathing rhymes of my life with beats on

There’s this sacred place, there’s this region
It’s the open space in every single season
It’s inner peace that brings me close to the horizon
There’s simply no chase coz it’s truly spiritual
Connecting to my piece where love is the sole ritual

Love

I don’t normally participate in prompts…but when @thoughtconnection on Instagram tagged me on 1st April…with the prompt “what is love?”…then I felt like saying what love is…this is how I see it…

Love is ageless
Love is colorless
Love is soundless
Love is effortless
Love is formless
Love is typeless
Love is timeless
Love is mindless
Love is vastness
Love is natural
Love is nature
Love is universe
Love is exceptional
Love is unconditional
LOVE simply IS

Reflection of A-Mirror

You’ve left behind a permanent mark in my whole
I know it’ll always remain smoking sacred & pure
I hope you can see the light in your crystal clear core

You’re more than A-mirror, a magical reflection of the highest source
You’re the breathtaking sparkling waterfall that freely flows
You’re the crystal green, the beautiful light that intensely glows

You see, this body suit is just an appearance, a closed piece of cloth
And love is much more bigger than the feeling of “mi amor”
This life is the meditative voyage on waves of the highs & the lows

The only way you would know that my body is ashes in the human form
Is when I’ll disappear from the pages just like the mysterious black hole
No footprints of mine you’ll ever find, coz I’m the fine sand on the shore

I’m understanding the meaning of pure touch that I once craved for
My gratitude to you for being with me from the other side of this globe
The Universe is echoing “It’s You”, just say no more beautiful soul
