And Once Upon A Time The Genie Came.....



Once upon a time, there came a genie in a bottle, that debo decided to open.

But oops, debo had already quit alcohol, so even though she opened the lid and took a sniff sniff sniff, and treasured that one moment of whiff, she closed the lid back and sent it away.

Oh no debo, what did you do….dearie dearie me….

Gone was the bottle and gone was the once upon a time

Instead, debo waited alone,

Lost in a world of bubble wraps, from all those moments of dreamy escapades and runaways and whatnots, when retail therapy and diving inside paperbacks and listening to those clouds of music were all she did….and did a lot

Where the picture frames turned sepia with the pictures that were missing somewhere else

Where the poetry she started faded out into lines that got blurry, but were interesting, strong, feminine, beautiful and true, nonetheless

But horror of horrors

The genie she had sent away, and yet her dreams didn’t end

Or dreaming rather

And yet again, once upon a time,

There was a bug that debo found….not somewhere out there, but oh goodness oh….right inside her head

And there it was, the one that was the reason why she was the way she was, and why it was the best way for her, and most of those ways that your heart tells you are the best, are also the worst if you listen to your mind instead….but then again, this was debo….and she wouldn’t really listen to her mind…would she?

You know her, don’t you?

That mad madness of a girl, no woman, actually, the one who can never change, no matter what…

Who can never really stop the madness, that’s seeped into her pores, into her heart, into her dreams…and into her…that’s turned her what she is…and will be.

And if you don’t know her that well enough, beware….get away….for either she will love being with you and not let you go, or she’ll push you away or run away herself….your choice….

But by the way, whatever she does, she was, she is, she will remain….that once upon a time, that story that starts and maybe never finds an ending….the dream that begins, and keeps coming back, without shutting off the stories…


And if you really did reach all the way till here, then I send you a hug, coz I sure didn’t realize what I was writing….and my word bubble is still not full

I Won't Be 'I Was', I'll Still Remain 'I AM'



And then that day I will fly

The more you break my wings

The more I will never cry

Touch the sky

Touch my dreams and come by

By your side yet again

To show you that you lost…oh, but yet again

And then you will try

To bind those feet and hands

But yet again as lines on fine sand

It’ll show up subtle

That message that came in a bottle

That said….

I am, oh yes, I exist, and I am

And no matter how hard you try

I won’t be ‘I was’, I’ll remain ‘I am’

Breaking me apart

Piece by lovely peace

Is a fun game of life we’ll play

You may try to win

But you’ll never be able to break me…

Yes, my dear, you shall see

Go…..stay happy

To The Love That Went For A Walk Somewhere


Someone asked me that day

Why,

When we fall in love

We fall with a passion that is unmatched

A love that can see no other

A heart that wants no other

A mind that can think of nothing else

A hug that needs no other embrace but that one

The one…

Why,

When we fall in love,

Do we give it our all

Do we give it our own self

Our heart our mind our body our soul

And more…

And yet,

There comes a day

When that love that was all

All consuming

All compassionate

All that was there to live for

Makes you want to stop

Stop living

Stop loving

Stop believing?

Why,

Does it make you want to hide

To run away to a place where no one else will find

That heart of yours that once loved

But now

Just wants to wash its hands off love

For ever

And a lifetime

So many dreams with open eyes

And when they are closed

Its dark

A welcoming darkness…..

Before a smile will come some day

Some day……
