A Conversation Between Three Entities: The Face, The Witness & The Viewer

  The Witness: Why do you cry? The Face: Because, I see. The Witness: What do you see?   ::  The Face stares back for a time where The Witness thought to itself ‘until Kingdom-Come, when will it speak?” The Face’s eyes weld up with the deepest sorrow yet the greatest joy with a mouth closed and an unbreakable silence. Then, The Face let out a heavy sigh. ::   The Face: I am a Seer My eyes pour So, my third eye may shine It is the diamond of my mind It cries… Dripping down from the center-to-the-center Into a … Continue reading A Conversation Between Three Entities: The Face, The Witness & The Viewer

SAD SANDWICHES: Baloney & Plastic Wrapped Cheese, no mayo by Moriah M. Mylod

Seeing my mother standing there with all of her grandchildren looking more infantile Walking around, carrying the infant that is me Wishing I had a dad that took us fishing not teaching us anything about how to fish Wishing I had a dad… — Finally in time, I have created a family A family I have always needed Though I sought out glimmers of it in friends’ homes — Nobody celebrates the victories that were overcome But, I did… Nobody will acknowledge the injustices that were lived through But, I will… Connecting it to all of humanity’s sufferings? — So… … Continue reading SAD SANDWICHES: Baloney & Plastic Wrapped Cheese, no mayo by Moriah M.

LILITH: PERCHED IN SILENCE by Moriah M. Mylod

In my dreams we were in Charleston imagining apparitions and clowns I wonder how we could devise plans to become ghosts together in a tourist town to scare off kids and lovers alike And seeing how they still wanted us around even The devil horned The pale-blue eyed The predatorial smiles The dirty skinned   A Murder of Crow, A Flight of Snow Geese In Winter’s frigid manner Their feet lifting off from the ground into a frightening flight Wings whirring in the wind To a bleakness up above With a singled eye Blindfolded   To be, but afar from … Continue reading LILITH: PERCHED IN SILENCE by Moriah M.

MILES OF SHIT PILES, FOR YOU by Moriah M. Mylod

Life is unbearable Then, it is not It’s like walking on sandpaper coping with the pain of emotions of every moment Waning on you, everyday Wearing away on you, everyday Into a person you hardly recognize, anymore Who are you? Existing on this plane, hollow inside You are not your feelings Overbearing, heavy or empty Does anyone live life restfully? If so, how? Is there anybody out-there? Let me tell you a story… There is a black dog Hanging around your house Gnawing, biting, growling, barking and stalking You It never leaves You Throw it a bone And it still … Continue reading MILES OF SHIT PILES, FOR YOU by Moriah M.

FRAGRANT DEATH by Moriah M. Mylod

How fragrant Death is… The leaves, The brush Dying and  Decomposing Under Our feet Why, we watch The last breath Burst into Many shades Of the color wheel? A pretty party of Leaves falling Like raindrops Spinning and Twisting Changing direction To and fro The insides Of living things that Once were Agonally gasping, Grasping How fragrant Fall is… The leaves, The brush Dying and Decomposing Under Our feet Photography by Andrew Brockerhoff Instagram: drewbr0ck   Continue reading FRAGRANT DEATH by Moriah M.

ICARUS: MELTY WINGS by Moriah M. Mylod

She bawled her eyes out over the phone As her mother was on the other line eating Chocolate Chip Mint Ice Cream Melty like her wings tied back with assorted pastel colored rubber bands Mother said it could be worst It could be better Much better She tried to fit all of her belongings in a pale blue plastic bag from Walmart but it had too many holes And her toothbrush and a torn up flip-flop were already poking out Toothpaste was the only thing that made her feel clean these days In fact it was keeping her alive She … Continue reading ICARUS: MELTY WINGS by Moriah M.

PLAYGROUND RULES & PHYSICS by Moriah M. Mylod

Tables turn Moving around and around Seesaw goes up while the other one is down Just so you can push your friend back up again To take the turn The Swing goes Backward to move Forward Then Back & Forth You go up the Slide just to drop back down, again Upward & Downward Your hands in the air while waiting for your feet to touch the ground To become grounded, again Laughing uncontrollably on the Merry-Go-Round as you start to lose grip Grasping onto the bars with all your might Spinning fast Counter-Clockwise Off you go Flying and head … Continue reading PLAYGROUND RULES & PHYSICS by Moriah M.
