glass case ~ a dizain


coz I’m in a glass case of emotion
curious eyes peer right into my tears
their noses pressing on the frosty pane
looking through the fog of my utmost fears
slyly searching past how I appear
I look around for a shelter to hide
but all of the outside is my inside
scattered are the shards of my silent scream
sweat mists my mind and I turn on my side
Is this real or am I in a dream?

makeover madness ~ a rhyme

One magic weekend 
for no reason at all
my hairdresser of six years
turned a know-it-all

She announced in splendour
her twisted cause célèbre
she had picked me
for a mad makeover

Binding me intextricably
to her proposition
she took over my tresses
for reorganization

Topknot with a bouffant
part dizzy curls,part poker straight style
I crouched sullen low
and stared at the tile

Clearing her throat
then clearing the air
she revealed to me
what she'd done with my hair

The mirror shrieked
and I almost gagged
but I went and got myself
a brown paper bag
