Splintered, a poem

Splintered a poem

A poem by Deanna M Ramirez

Eyes full of judgment and no ⠀
attempt to mask their message ⠀
You don't know me yet you're sure you do⠀
Transmission received but I pause⠀
Self awareness an earned attribute ⠀
escapes those with critical eyes ⠀
You wish me harm, yet I feel sadness ⠀
not of self⠀
I see eyes burred with pain, ⠀
baring truth of their owner⠀
Eyes say, "I am stupid. Not good enough. ⠀
I want what you have."⠀
To which I reply, "I am not your enemy ⠀
nor your competition. ⠀
Splintered eyes impede vision. ⠀
Pluck out the fragments ⠀
that you may see your beauty ⠀
and love yourself.

Champion, a poem

Champion a poem

Champion, a poem by Deanna Ramirez

The fact that you're still trying
when others would've given up by now
It's the mark of a champion
You're doing it
Keep at it, but first - take a bow!

Light, a poem

Light, a poem

A poem by Deanna M Ramirez

Light splays across a wet canvas
reflecting more clearly than a mirror
Detail of my past flume trails
of refracted imagery as I walk nearer

Lumen in paramount fill the cavity
of this cave that I roam
A dream within a distant dream
of my fluorescent catacomb
