odyssey’s sweet mayhem

I bleed shyly 
into a chalice that 
holds my heartbeat:
sonnet of life that binds
the breathtaking balance
of reason,
I go through the tradition
of sweet mayhem;
the ardor of intuition, as
poems illuminate laws of love
embellishing eros
breathing in the exotic 
of inquisitive senses...

even as sorrow seduces me
in life's suspense
the abduction of peace
like a calumny..
searching for the 
impulsive power 
of a poet's passion
embracing candor

emotions confirm
sanctity of my sanity

in an ocean
named odyssey
I consume starlight
I touch aurum....

  4. I need to read this as many times as there are letters. I need to read this and pause to reflect during each space between the words. You bleed as well or better than most poets I know and your genuineness, and prowess, as a poet, is admirable. This is a great description of your processes: thought and writing. You may start out shyly but you are ferocious as a writer. This has such depth and beauty that I will be called to read it aloud, several times.

    1. Best thing anyone said to me. I think if anyone is appreciated so beautifully, they will write with even more ardor. Thank you thank you 😊, Al Pacino. I bow to the Godfather of all poets.

  5. I would have loved to watch you write this, Yasmin – to sit by you and see the word being added and subtracted – watching the mathematics of your process.
    But I know that I would not like it if I were watched. It would pull my mind and render the creative process impossible. I imagine you to be the same. How do you feel about people watching you write?
