Illusion

 

He flew like He was meant to fly,

Like he was going to tear the sky,

But  the sky was too far and not real,

An untouchable, unreachable goal,

An illusion, that’s all,

A Snowy Day

Little pieces of clouds
Falling from the sky
Covering all I see In a
white blanket of snow.

As I see from the window
The valley turns white
Like a blank canvas,
The world a blank page.

The Strength You Finally Find

I would rather you didn’t make me your addiction,
I want to be that which gives you life
Not which takes it away in a process of slow death.

Let me be the air that you breathe,
I don’t wish to be the cigarettes that you smoke
To get through a sleepless night. Continue reading “The Strength You Finally Find”

Why Now?

When a heart turns numb and love is gone
No electricity to light up the darkness
No heat to keep you warm at nights
Tears won’t soften a heart like that
Smiles will stir no feelings in it
No words you can speak
No songs you can sing
No apologies you make
No flowers you can bring
Continue reading “Why Now?”

Sting Of Time

You stub your toe
Running into wrong doors
In dark alleys between
Choices made and fate,
And it stings.

Wondering for days
What you did wrong
Is just as ludicrous
As asking “why?” from fate.
Very often there is no
Answer to find.
It was chance
doing it’s dirty dance. Continue reading “Sting Of Time”

Flying Inside A Box

Everywhere I look
I see posters telling me
What I want, what I like,
Who I am and who I want to be.
Sometimes I look away,
Sometimes I buy into their story.
They talk about free will

What Will I Be

I read her words, so Funny!
She said she wanted to be a Bee
“And you?” was her question to me
Got me thinking what will I be

Forever For A Day

My eyes couldn’t rest all night
The dreams didn’t let them
My heart kept longing for you
Sleeping right by your side
Even though you held me close
My heart kept longing for more

Broken Angels

Favim.com-23889

You heard of angels in songs and sonnets
But you don’t believe they exist anymore
Once they did but they are now extinct
World changed, the climate changed
It became Scorching, savage, befitting the demons
Continue reading “Broken Angels”
