I am Who I am

I am who I am

A rock beneath the waters

The prince of the black sea

Silent listener to the soft breeze

That carries old tales of light and dark

And of the secret darkened rose of Africa

Whose distilled succulent scent

Commands the world to shut up and listen

Her ever-alert thorns

Horn and hush the decay of red earth

Rousing dreams and fantasies

Of the quiet ones

The dreamers

And misfits

Who carry

Gentle

Hearts

Falling

Dz6ZtttWwAAomyy

Like a pregnant cloud

She was unable

To control

Her senses

&

Self-preservation

Her heart was falling

Hard

She was a fool

Caught

In a trance

Of love

That lie was

Beautiful

Blissful

&

Her downfall

One Twinkle

Dz1lZkFWwAA3CFu

The sweetness

Of this moment

Is too distilled

Tempting me

To close

My eyes

And fly

Away

To meet

My

Dreams

&

Fantasies

But

One twinkle

Will force it

To go

Forever

The Rush

Dzyqn_nWwAAGJJq

At that

Penultimate moment

I was caught up

In a rush

Howling

Like an animal

From the wild

Tumbling down

My walls

As the cold

Full moon

Confirmed

Their apprehension

Nobody is going

To save them tonight
