On Deaf Ears

An echo into the void

I am just an echo.

No one sees, no one hears the haunting fears.

I scream!

But it’s all in my head

I am broken

The pieces are too small to put back together.

I’ve held on for as long as I could

But the void, it keeps growing

And this!

Whatever THIS is, it’s harrowing.

I call for help but it seems

It has fallen on deaf ears

And I am left to fend for myself as the void slowly consumes me.

Sometimes I Write…

…About happiness

And then sometimes I want to write about sadness

Sometimes it’s a song about love

And then at times about heartbreak

Sometimes it’s about life and acknowledging the existence of death

Then sometimes I write about nothing

About no one

About myself

About others

About the world and the beauty it has despite the darkness it also holds

With all the sometimes, often I write with the aim not to please others

But just to bring joy

The Joy (and Sadness) of Friday

Oh joy!
Oh happiness!
End of the week it is
Weekend is waiting and I can get cozy in bed

Momentous event to have finished the week
Yet, a bit of regret
Two days of rest means
Two days not seeing you
Weekends mean my week ends with you

But absence is supposed to make the heart go fonder
I hope it does to you
So that even when Monday makes you blue
May I be the reason for you to be joyous still

In Between

in between the moon and the stars,

between the skies and the mountains,

there I wait for you

in between the valleys and the ocean

between dawn and daybreak

I continue to wait for you

 

though I know you will never come

I wait still

for I know that in between the Earth and heaven

where I cannot reach you…

there you are
