And Then I Was Mum

I used to see beauty and color in everything

Used to hear music and the joy it brings

I talked about the lovely moon

The song of the stars and so on

.

But they shamed me

Shunned me

Condemned my poetic dreams

So all of a sudden and all at once, I became mum

.

Now in the silence, they reach out for me

But I am gone, nowhere to be

They will hear no more

I am mum from them, forever

Not Mine

He told me a story 

One about love and humor

He smiled in a way I’ve never seen before

His eyes wide and excited

A thrill in his voice
He talked about love

But it was one not to be mine

Hello Up There!

I talk to you though you never say much

Near enough to see,

Far enough unable to touch

You listen to my woes and often we don’t say a word

Yet you fill this aching heart

You manage to remove the stabbed sword

I sit here, looking up

We both are quite still

Don’t Talk

Work hard and stay humble

When everyone else casts you aside

Surprise them by not being boastful

Let them talk, that is all they do

Try your hardest and let your achievement do the talking

Our Conversation 

I looked in his eyes and saw reflections of me

Does he understand? Does he truly see?

What we could be

I and he.
I say I love him, I said it shamelessly 

I feel light, I feel free

His eyes seem to smile happily.
His mouth parted as if he was about to say something

Then I woke up hearing my own heart breaking.

I can’t tell you…

…because I don’t know how your mind works
No lines I can read
No sentences I can understand
I am not sure what to think about the things that you do
The things that you say
You are being yourself
But something in me has changed

I hate myself for starting this feeling
But I hate myself more if I push it away

I still can’t tell you
I hope you can tell me instead 🙂

Dancing Conversation

He smiled knowing it would melt a thousand hearts
I realized I looked away slightly
Then slowly looked back up at him
A teasing smile
And I clumsily responded,
A decline to his invitation for a group movie date

His wide smile faded
A forced grin took place
And I know deep down he would have wanted my answer to be otherwise
Though it is more of a friendly tone,
His reaction to my decline made my heart skip a beat 🙂
