Hang Man

Outside he appeared to be jolly

Inside he was feeling hollow, empty

He could feel something creeping in his mind

It was dark, cruel, tempting, and unkind

He tried to ward it off, tried to fight it

But on days when he was awake and alone, he contemplated on it

Don’t think him too weak, it was a battle no one could see

It took over him so his life he took a finality

He bowed his head and there himself he hanged

The darkness he could no longer withstand 

Wish I Told You

I love you

I just want to say

I never got the chance to really tell you.
I love you

And wished I told you sooner

So I tell the wind to tell you
I love you

It’s true

Yes, I do love you

Her Sleep

Her voice was hoarse 

She felt weak

She was getting tired

But then she heard

So she awoke

And found they were crying

She didn’t understand why

Because just before her eyes opened

She felt only the most peaceful sleep

Leave Me

Why would you go?

Why would you leave?

What can I do?

What can I give?
It breaks my heart

I can’t make you stay

And so I cry

And I just pray
Until then 

Until that time

That you and I will meet again

If I were to have my way
If it were as easy as one, two, three
I’d pick you at any given day
Yes, that easy, just you and me

But I have a long, long way to go
A year is still so far off
And just so you know
It’s not meant as a scoff
Or to tell you I won’t wait
Because you are worth every minute
Worth to be my future mate
My future, yes! I see you in it!

But it’s not yet time
I can’t call you mine, not yet
If you’re not the one though,
I will no longer search
I won’t look
Because if it’s time, whoever he is will find me
I just hope it is you 😁

If my life were taken today,
I wonder what you would say?

Would you tell me you love me?
Or would you say you were just being friendly?

Would you cry and hold me until my last breath?
Will you be sad because of my death?

If I died today, is there anything you’d like to say?

To Dust and Earth

Slowly, slowly
The earth covered me
The blackness consumes me
Eternal resting place, found me
They weep
While I lay still beneath the mud and dirt
Back to dust

They mourn,
I move on
And so it is

A Tear For You

I cried for no reason
And I wondered why

A tear upon my cheek
Fell from my eye

I scratched my head
And wondred for a clue

I then realized
That I missed you

Gone Wind

Where is the wind?
Everything is still
The wind ceased its dancing
No wind to caress my hair
The clouds, unmoving
Unable to travel far
The air is hot, suffocating me
I wait for a sign, a movement
But there is none

Maria Michaela

Gone, Gone Girl

When I packed up and left, an explosion of surprises happened fast
I was engulfed and swallowed in
I lost sight of what was real
And then, silence
Gone forever
