Poems by  CAROLINE NAZARENO

 

 

 

 

Tonight is a Breakaway

 

 

I am telling the cold abandoned

Bed of yesterday

Tonight is tomorrow’s

Subservient way

To feel the cloud nine thirst and hunger

Of why is the day

Leaving again

The marriage of callous blankets and pillows

Of immaturities

Denying, disbelieving, holding back

The winds of turning downfall

The mystique of the unknown frontiers

Ups,

Downs,

Sides– clips of immortality

Heeding to the cliffs of behind and before

All are silent yawning destinies

Of insecurities

It is happening

When you let me feel

This is our story

To live in Xanadu

The snoring holy graves

With you

©ceri naz 2014

 

 

 

 

 

Jumbo mambo chum

 

 

i thought of jumbo mambo

showcase of rhythmic shaking hands

a little extra or bonus

i called simplicity

a humble tumbleweed

from the ashtray

absorbing odors

of insanity and remorse

turning into baby’s breath

in the hayfields of no blaming

no perforated lines to tear

no one is unwanted like a rebel

nothing charged nor levied

if in due time love is unpaid

i want to see faces

in a pail of water

untied from sixty-four million dollar questions

where lies have its extinctions

while rusted beliefs

were polished by understanding

if this last tissue paper

can ease fear and anger

no qualms and danger

i place these open arms

in a synopsis

my friend is Peace.

©ceri naz 2014

 

 

 

 

 

 

frozen eyes

 

 

a pact between the feelings

inner morphine lingers

the resonance of fate

breath by breath

beat by beat

killing us softly, slowly

in the menage

of ourselves

butterflies courting lilies

in this nirvana

of free flying dreams

piercing, enslaving

second by second

time after time

into the love spells

of our frozen eyes
