Dreams & Delusions…

Escape of Music and Poetry

Feeling the notes, blissfully
Letting the rhythm fill me,
Leaving this place I don’t want to be
Far away, behind me…
Filling my sight with beauty,
Drowning my sorrows in tea,
Filling my mind with clever poetry.
Forgetting the world, remembering me…

I love you
to a dangerous depth
loss of breath
life’s a grave
without your smile
you light up the room
in a single gasp
my sunflower
my angelic laughter
vortex of my fire power
my lover
light of my life
in my darkest hour

The Nameless (by Lisa Ojanpera)

It is the nameless faces that have created the way
The everyday men and women willing to walk the extra mile
The voices cast in the wind of time forgotten by name
Returning to the earth in love of prosperous song
Speaking to the children of the new generation
For those willing to listen to the reeds of yesterday
Marching in confidence to the tune of tomorrow
That is what makes life a bastion of harmony

-Lisa Ojanpera


Fall(ing Forever)

I keep wondering
What would make anyone

For a heart so broken,
A mind,
So

In the same space?
Is that why
I keep dreaming of you
In this place?
Why I keep finding

Into place.

We run,
Though we can never erase…
Haunted,
Always longing,
Locked in
Ethereal embrace.

Paradox or Scientific Fantasy (by Lisa Ojanpera)

Watching someone you love
d
r
o
p
from the cliff
and you’re reaching at the top screaming nooooooooooo….
I would definitely dive off that cliff after you
And furthermore damn that poet  for telling us
To “rage against the dying of the light”
I just want to say,
Man.
I have had so much respect for you
for so many years
What the fuck are you doing?
and
I am
the least of the people you shouldn’t be disappointing

Lisa is taking a break from her blogs, so I am posting her stuff here for a while. 🙂


Sleep

I keep saying
I’m going to get some sleep,
But every time I rest,
These images of you creep
Through my consciousness,
And I fall so deep
Into you, into me…
I’m going to get some sleep.

Calypso’s Slippers

image

Calypso calls
In her blushing glory-
“I’ll weave you
A golden skin,
Only stay,
To adore me…
I’ll keep you
Intoxicated
On the sweetest wine,
Only say
You’re eternally mine…”
Dancing in slippers,
Delicate silk…
Touching iridescent skin,
Pale as milk.
Come, adventurer,
And drink of me,
We’ll forever rule the sea…
