Finally

FINALLY BAJEZEN.BLOG.png

Crackle pop and a fizzle
Look to the sky at the spectacular display
The crowd erupts in oohs and ahs
Drinks in a hand, hugs, and kisses
Full of good cheer
Finally, the new year 2018 is here.
Full of so much hope and expectations
We welcome the unknown with such anticipation
The best is yet to come
Drop the past without a care
Believe in all the goodness that is in store for you this year

The Daily Prompt Finally

Torn

TORN A POEM BY BAJEZEN.BLOG.png

She found solace in the hurt
She wore the scars of past wounds like a badge of honor
It’s so ironic how thoughts can do so much damage
She convinced herself being alone was for the best
Not willing to take the risk of another plaster being ripped from the walls of her soul
Being crazy in love did not become her
Commitment phobia or maybe it was paranoia
He was getting closer to unlocking the chains around her heart
Maybe the feelings would go away if she ignored them
She feared to be vulnerable; it seems love always left her feeling broken, winded and knocked off her feet  
Her head said no but with every beat of her heart she longed to own him
Yearning for somewhere to run and hide
Old familiar pangs of wanting and longing to have someone by her side
Should she risk the gamble?
A timid, bruised and battered heart torn between the comfort of the past and the new story she was so afraid to write.

Embrace The Elegance Of Simplicity

EMBRACE THE ELEGANCE OF SIMPLICITY BAJEZEN.BLOG.png

Don’t be defined by the events of the past
Intimidated by the monsters that lurk in the shadows
Life is not a puzzle to be solved, fixed or sorted
It may be messy but it is a miracle

Be open to every possibility
Strip it down, clear your mind
Immerse yourself in the simplicity

Embrace the elegance of life
Be ingenious, be brave enough to face any challenge

Beauty can be found in everything
Celebrate yourself, focus on the good
Forget what you think you know
Find the inspiration in the present moment
Never fight against the flow

The Dubious Heart

the dubious heart bajezen

Deception always threatens the seemingly unbreakable bonds of trust
It never really has the same sweet taste
Paranoid, jaded or out of your head
The one that once gave you so much life now leaves you feeling zombie-like; half dead
A war zone of misconceptions
The tiniest suspicious detail can trigger an explosion
Emotions erratic so hard to reign in
Promises like empty calories provide no satisfaction to a dubious heart
A roller coaster: stomach churning, such unease
Can we just go back to the thrill of the start?
Are you winning or losing?  you will never know
Lies weave a tangled web, leaving you trapped and unsure
You pray not to become bitter they surely can’t all be the same
Different places and faces but they all play the same stupid games
One of the hardest things to do after your heart has been through so much pain is to pick yourself up
Dress your wounds and learn how to love again.
