Monika

Monika
Rainbows are fantasies,
Of an anaemic sun.
If only our eyes were prisms
Each Truth would have come clad
In a primary colour.

Monika
Dreams are facts,
Of life lived after-hours.
If only, we were awake
Each wish would come true
In the moment of its conception.

Monika
Songs are sorrows.
Of silences punctuated
If only we had heard
Each silence would have sung
In unison
With our heartbeats.

Monika
Flowers are memories,
Of fragrances dancing uncertainly.
If only we had remembered
Each scent would have embraced us in
An uncertain waltz.

Monika
Candles are suggestions.
Of light reducing us to shadows.
If only, we had opened our eyes
Each candle would have invited us
Into arms of a resplendent darkness.

Monika
Poems
Are promises
Of passion.
If only, we had read
Each word would have promised
Inevitable pain.
