Bluebells in Glee

Reading Time: 1 minuteHere’s an evocative prose poem by Deeya, exclusively for Different Truths. The bluebells in glee spring their jocund heads in the sunny scape of mind, the fleeting images of a sickle-shaped moon, weaned from the sapling sun are coquetries. Love prophesied in the over-arched poplar trees are an ode to the doleful evening when despondently […]

Music of Love

Reading Time: 1 minuteA love poem, by Deeya, exclusively for Different Truths. Rivers run back stifled weeds mock the time the sorrow of life   the soreness-brown humbug that fade away with time never to return   Orchids spell their woe in a perfect twilight  a searching hand groping in the dark Of a hollow embrace a mellowed orgasm replete […]

Myriad Tales

Reading Time: 1 minuteHere’s an intense poem about the inner turmoil, by Deeya, for Different Truths. Curses left me behind To float like blotches On skin Blindfolding me   Legends floated on Soda; it was a wild night And gruesome    Somebody shouted in the dark Pitchy like charcoal on a chilly night Of November Of swindling face […]

Genesis

Reading Time: 1 minuteHere’s an inward-looking, intense poem by Deeya, for Different Truths.  The river of mind Swift turquoise virulent Sings of phallus and sickness   Shimmering sands cajole The overriding spirit Clacking shoes like devils shriek   The Sonata  In the serenity of zeroness sucks   The river meanders  It flows virtually Never to make happen a […]

Moon and Madness

Reading Time: 1 minuteAn intense, inward-looking poem, by Deeya, for Different Truths.

Fear

Reading Time: 1 minuteAn intense, women-centric prose poem by Deeya, in Different Truths. Fear is unknown; I’ve felt it in my fingers and toes. I backpack it in my nightmares. The devil’s face in sickening colours engulfs my shadow. Lilacs hum a weedy tune. The livid Oracle smears my porous skin. Running past tunnels of thick darkness, a […]

A Sublime Nature Poem

Reading Time: 1 minuteAn enigmatic poem by Deeya that celebrates nature, in Different Truths. Butterflies soak the sun radiating virgin dreams Butterflies soak the sun radiating virgin dreams on their wings colours descend from the morning sky myriad bees and wasps trumpets mysteries of the still air in touch-me-nots and marigolds The swerving sky on the mouth of […]

Claustrophobia

Reading Time: 1 minuteAn intense and poignant prose poem by Deeya, in Different Truths. Pinned against a wall a moth flutters desperately. It isn’t his wall. I can wall up my desperateness well. His inadvertent fall might have been blue or green. Green relieves one’s senses. My senses can build up octaves well. Octave reveals themselves in blue […]

The Revenge of Tashi
