Tango on the Lips

At first I was attracted to the shape and form of the letters in the word, with curvy vowels anchored by strong consonants, the word that came to mind was tango, a beautiful woman held gracefully by the strong arms of her partner, Before even reading the word, my lips were softly tasting the sound [...]

The Pen

I saw words in the ink I wrote until the spiderweb tore I wrote until their bloody cage broke I wrote until their blood flowed I wrote until I set them free I wrote until their story breathed © All Rights Reserved Kim Koning.


stay You walk away, I wait - Gone - The world breaks apart The groaning earth cracks The heavens tear asunder running,falling Eyes burning with the sting of salt My chest aches, the muscle of my core cracks Bile rises up in me Rivulets of Blood flow in a cage of ribs Claws of Malice [...]


The soldiers are unseen Camouflaged in skin Their weapons are lethal They are elements of torture They have captured me Stretched out on a rack Every muscle screams in protest Every muscle held in a vice-like grip of agony My jaw is locked shut My eyes are blinded as the blades enter My mouth is [...]

Death’s Last Breath | The Abandoned & The Disappeared

Death’s Last Breath Dust Devils dance a macabre dervish Tumbleweed twists in torment Ghosts of the Disappeared stalk the streets of Death Screams of silence fill the graveyard of the Abandoned Gates creak open with unearthly screams Come down to the Graveyard Coffins spill their bone chilling secrets All Hallow’s Eve draws near The battle-worn [...]

The Divine Orchestra

Steam rises from the barren ground Liquid sand boils in an earthen cauldron Molten fire swims in a deep river The air above the toiling caldron stills Not a bird calls nor do creatures stir, The waxen earth beats to an ancient drummer’s heartbeat Nature’s choir hums a song of still serenity The winds breathe [...]

Soul Wings

If writing words are the Bare Bones of me, then Poeme` is the ephemeral Soul of me Bones are formed from dust flesh out the form of my shadow Poeme` the intangible core of my being the breath of life to my shadow Without the breath divinely inspired I am but a lost thing having [...]


Life is not about Resistance, Life is about Release: Life is about Releasing the Past To Embrace the Now. Life is about Releasing the Lessons To Embrace the Blessings. Life is about Releasing the Sadness To Embrace the Joy. Life is about Releasing the Hate To Embrace the Love. Life is about Releasing the Bitterness [...]

Christmas Spirits

Twas the night before Christmas and as I lay down in bed I sent out a Christmas prayer. “Christmas Spirits, both ancient and present I plead with you this dark night lit only by the moon. My Christmas wish tonight is not for gifts of gold and silver wrapped trinkets or sweet morsels to fill [...]

The Passing Of Pain

The time of healing is near yet for a distance, Tears unshed with silent screams Agony through the barrier of solitude. Emotions create voids; voids of self-discovery Is it fear of vulnerability? Arrows of others’ views The bows of torment are sprung… The clouds of time are building slowly The torrent of healing is falling [...]

Letting Go

Pain Receding and returning Burning, constantly churning Alone alone The feelings indescribable ever elusive Emotionally abhorrent mentally abusive An act, a mask a tear behind a smile The wall shutting out the pain the fear Unapproachable My heart at odds no hearts breaking even Twisting and turning my strength keeps me burning yearning… The once [...]

The Keeper Of The Walls

The Storm is moving closer The peace, the security; Anger strikes out knowing no reason. The weakness to be strong the elusive quality of tears; a sorrow lifted. The knowledge of the alluding strength - my salvation - The holy water of your tears turns me to bitter wine. -Goodbye - The walls cannot crumble [...]

Emotions At Tide

Undisturbed turbulence veiled by a calm tranquility, Unleashed by the Earth’s might Let its Spirit enfold; Strange yet magnificent in its complexity Known to change the essence of the mould. The placidity, complex in the very simplicity Known to affect the heart of the matter; The slow ebb and flow of this inner city One [...]


~ Life is a poem ~ Inspired on the breath of Divine Creation It shows your cracks Through the cracks A sliver of hope saturates your soul ~ In ugliness and in beauty ~ To breathe is both a burden and a gift ~ Living is naked honesty ~ In a film of vulnerability A [...]

Kia Kaha | Stand Strong

May your strength and hope shine through and may it be a beacon to the rest of us. May God be with you all. May the Lord still the earth beneath your feet. May He strengthen your foundations. May those that are trapped be sheltered under the Lord’s wings and kept safe til they can [...]

Flying Free On The Wings Of Time

If you rush through Life, Moments will pass by in a blur; If you take things too slowly, You will miss the Moments. Like a Photograph Life is all about being in the Moment: Perfect Rhythm of Space. Timing. Serendipity. * Published online in Undead Poets Society, Posted on January 17, 2011 under last_lines © [...]

Resilience | Hope

Hope is a green blade of grass in a hot desert Resilience is a daisy blooming in the tread of Fate’s footpath Faith is absorbing every bit of moisture Life is to keep growing But Love is the unseen root… * Published online in Undead Poets Society, January 9, 2011 by last_lines * Published online [...]


I want to hate you I want to forget you You have no right to my love You have no right to my tears You filled my heart with life You filled my heart with tears You stole into the depths of me Before I could lock the doors I remember your touch like falling [...]
