Maybe

life

Maybe heaven is hell

And hell a heaven

Either way

I have lived.

Maybe dreams are real

And reality is a dream

Either way

I have lived.

Maybe happiness is pain

And pain is a happiness

Either way

I have lived.

Maybe innocence is guilt

And guilt is an innocence

Either way

I have lived.

Maybe sweet is bitter

And bitter a sweet

Either way

I have lived.

Maybe winning is losing

And losing is winning

Either way

I have lived.

Maybe justice is revenge

And revenge is justice

Either way

I have lived.

Maybe war is peace

And peace a war

Either way

I have lived.

Maybe the present is a past

And the past a present

Either way

I have lived.

Maybe love is hate

And hate is love

Either way

I have lived.

Maybe life is death

And death is life

Either way

I have lived.

And maybe life is a puzzle

Forever a mystery

Either way

I have lived.


BE-ginning

look out

There’s a light in your eyes

Sparkling like the clear waters

When you walked by

My ugly windows.

And here I am, just watching

Letting life pass by

Hearing the ills of the world

Seeing the empty shells of people.

Feeling half-awake

With the thick walls

I built upon myself-

That started to crumble.

Confused Am I

With the fear of tomorrow

Hanging in the air-

So much for hoping.

So like water I float

Letting the flow lead me

Somewhere I can be-

Somewhere I belong.


Crossroads

road

You must have thought why

I never smiled

It’s not that I’m sad nor lonely

It’s just me.

You thought of happiness

I thought of love

Not even for a second

With a cold facade.

And why oh why

You left me wondering

Of what could have been

Of the truth.

It’s just sad that time

Did not allow us

Even for a second

To meet down the road.


Sunrise

golden_sunrise

Here I am again,

Sitting and waiting

Thoughts drifting

with the cold wind.

Hearing the loud waves

Like sirens singing

Echoing the memories

From a distance.

Remembering a blank face

Along with a closed door

and silent aches

Like it was  yesterday.

Raindrops fell

But only for a moment

As the love was gone

As soon as it began.

Finally comes the sun

Breaking the dawn

Lighting the shadows

and I left.


Walls

lovers-thomas-churchwell

I hear your hushed footsteps

Echoing down the halls

Even before you came

And silently closed the door.

The bed creaks

Your shadow appears

From the dim light

Where I can see.
Your touch was soft like velvet

Your whispers caressing

With the warmth of your breath

Against my ear.
It felt like heaven

Hearing these words

You wouldn’t normally speak

In front of me.
And I close my eyes

With hope in my heart

But tomorrow will come

And you’ll become my beast.


Distance

reflection

I felt the pull

The second our eyes met

My heart recognized your face

But my mind thought otherwise.

Things were different then

You were above me

Forever moving on in circles

Only admired from afar.

If only the wind could whisper

Then it would sigh longings

Days of loneliness and silence

Looking for your presence.

I felt compelled to push the wall

So I can utter these words

But alas! the god of chance got tired

and left me with regrets.
