Short poem

Empty Words

817d5ffd416b788b6a9a343fef94d0a4

 

It becomes difficult to follow
When you walk in one direction
But point in another.
Words start to feel empty
When you say them again and again
But the things you do say something else.
Who doesn’t want to expect good things
But when good things lead to bad things
You stop believing one day.

Superficial Wounds

These are superficial wounds,
The wounds inflicted by the world
Wounds of time and monetary losses
Wounds given by loved one who left
Or stayed but didn’t quite love us right
All superficial wounds.
Nothing skin deep, all flesh wounds,
For the wounds that come from outside
Never really go too deep.

A Shot At The Sky

You might be right,
I might be taking a foolish risk.
I might be wrong to think I can win
In a game, many have lost their sanity in.
But some did win, didn’t they?
A very few, I Know, and I seem nothing like
I was born to be amongst a special few
But how will we know if I don’t even try,
If you don’t jump you will never fly.
All I ask is don’t deny me the right to try,
All I want is a shot at it,
A shot at the sky.

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?”

Freedom Demands sacrifice

Dancing light of a half eaten moon,
Trapped inside a dirty old bottle,
locked with a tottery bottle cap
Eager to break free from the trap.

One shudder and the bottleā€™s down,
All that light spilling on the ground,
Continue reading “Freedom Demands sacrifice”
