Hands Over Your Eyes


Close your eyes.
Cover your ears.
We’ll take a train
away from here.

Somewhere greener
Anywhere warmer.

Someplace just beyond
our reach but we’ll
reach it anyhow

Leaving the delirium
of the mundane behind.

We’ll hold court in a
seaside town.

And rinse our glasses
in sugar.

Learning the music
our hearts make when
blessed with a peaceful
beat, the sound of us.

We’ll lean into each other
and come like we
never have.

Your mouth all over me.
I’ll sing you to the edge.

Your gaze only on me
as we will dance into
new revelations, and
curl like a comma
into hopeful beginnings

-Tosha Michelle

      1. Yeah, in all honesty thought the blog was done. And thanks for the info. Didn’t know watercolors could be so vivid. Only barely started using acrylic paint at the suggestion of someone and its always fascinated me what individuals can create.

      2. If I wasn’t a total newbie, then wouldn’t really mind [: Just started a few months ago. It was suggested that I paint 200 paintings, and I shall never see the world the same again. Am working on it though. Always loved/respected the creative potential individuals can unleash, be it painting, writing, etc. In fact, think its vital to a healthy mind in many ways. Total tangent. Maybe one day if am confidence enough will show you and/or the world my ubber-newbiness. Until then! And isn’t enhancing just another art tool?


  1. Bonsoir belle parole et chanson TOSHA
    Laisse le bonheur te surprendre
    passe une bonne soirรฉe dans la joie et la bonne humeur
    Ce mardi n’as pas รฉtรฉ beau du tout
    Je me demande si le soleil existe encore
    Mais de passer chez toi me mets du baume au cล“ur

    gros bisous , Bernard, belle soirรฉe

  3. Okay this is getting a bit ridiculous and unfair. Every single day you write your best poem. “Curl like a comma” had be lean back in my chair with my mouth wide open. Your talent is a beautiful thing.
