Unfinished Metamorphosis

Dear Fellas. I am back again with a collaboration YaY!! 😊🌸 My third one in the last 2 weeks!! This time with the talented Graci. What should say about Graci? A talented young soul who writes so beautiful I fall short of words to justify her poetry exuberance. Mesmerizing, scintillating, aberrant, sensuous, see I tried but I am running out of adjectives and superlatives to describe her work.❤️😊   If you haven’t check her work, hurry up do it now – you can thank me later – you can check her work here – Simply G


 She is a fugitive to her own body.
Annihilation of happiness, she committed. 
Fugue state, she was in.
Moment of jamais vu, she had been.
After what she had been through, can you blame her?


And he hankered for her from time immemorial, 
engraving her senses in his amorphous love,   
he waited with a defiant heart,
tending a dwindling hope 
for the day to come,  
when she would feel the warmth of his love 


A wandering anion lost in space.
Longing for eunoia on this dreaded place.
Embraced cerebrotonia after getting lost in the maze.
What’s the next phase she should trace?


Many a time he stretched his hands,
how he wished he could assuage her pain,
give her the solace she so deserved, 
and he wished to give her the wings to fly
away in the cerulean draped skies  
but his thoughts were met with an ambivalent shield,
for her fear blurred his sincere deeds  


Have you tried embalming caritas 
to a person who’s degustating lassitude?
How do you inject gratitude
when depression succumbs her entity?


His reticence was not golden anymore, 
for he saw her gradually slipping into oblivion,
she was lost in the canvas of obscurity, 
falling slowly into an abyss of anonymity 


There’s no mystery here.
It’s life – the reality of life.
The naked truth that one goes through metamorphosis.
But she’s stuck in chrysalis.
Tell me, how will she evolve?


With faith as his armor and grit on his mind,
he held her delicate thoughts in the fold of his hymns,
there were no inclined expectations, 
or any disguised mirth,
he just thrived to show her sparkling worth,
and he hoped to help her garner her belligerent beliefs,
to help break the cocoon to find her relief, 
he knew when the barrier will be lifted 
she would absolve,
but that didn’t deter him to help her evolve

  3. A beautiful collaboration – loved the lines “he waited with a defiant heart,
    tending a dwindling hope
    for the day to come, ”

    Wonderfully written! Do wish you would leave us in mystery as to – who wrote what! Just me! If we aren’t smart enough to know, you shouldn’t tell us! Partners in the whole????

    1. Well, My Friend, this is just me. Even if all I get from a partner is only two words that end up being the source of everything that comes thereafter – for me, it’s a joint venture – Just me. This was a great piece and those lines really hit me defiant heart, dwindling hope – brilliant!
