Halloween

3869366195_5603a08b65

I should have felt fear

Instead I wanted to cheer.

I feel blessed indeed

For I felt no need

To wallow in misery.

I feel like my cup is overflowing

You heard my pleas and suffering

Indeed if this is the path you’ve chosen for me

Then I’m content to have made you happy

For all along you were my shepherd.

I offer my thanks this day

There’s nothing more I can say

But words of gratitude and gladness

No more fear and sadness

My heart goes out with love to all souls and saints.


Letters

letters

You live life on the road

You eat words for breakfast

Just to get by the deadline.

Never minding the ungodly hours

Nor the sore feet from walking for miles

Yet you get to have a love-hate relationship with power

You’re forever crossing a  bridge to danger.

And then unlearning the beliefs you once had

And learning to cuss when bullshits stare at you with malice.

Oh, but the story you look for can only be beautiful

When the protagonist is bad and ugly with money

You always crumple the paper until its insanely perfect

After staring so long at the blank walls of your room

Only to realize with dismay how your work is sliced in half

Oh, but then you are able to see unspoken truths

Never heard, never written, and long forgotten.

How complex can your role be?

You are an observant in an unfolding history

Whose side on shall you be?

Ah, but you’re the gatekeeper of society

It’s a calling, it truly is

For the strong-willed can only persist

From finding the gold in the tunnel.

Knowledgeable about everything yet a master of none

What the hell am I talking about?

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s being a journalist, that’s what.


Solace

i_792_lighthouse-004

Hush now and sleep my dear

Tomorrow will be a beautiful morn.

Gently wrap your fingers around mine

And safely sail your dreams with my embrace.

Drop your anchor and lay your troubles

So long buried underneath.

The storm you faced has just passed

and you’ve held your head high.

You’ve been shielding yourself from the waves of pain

Crashing you  down with its weight.

I’ll be the rock to your tears

The balm to your fears.

So slowly close your eyes and just breathe

And like music you’ll hear my heartbeat.

Let me carry you through this night

Where you’ll be at ease and be.

Stranger

Come on don’t be silent

Speak to my heart

Like you still care.

Come on hold my hand

Engulf me in your embrace

Like you used to.

Come on sit beside me

And stay throughout the night

Like you always did.

I don’t bite like them

Your innocence tempts me

Making demons out of me.

And now that you know the truth

Won’t you look at me straight

Like you adored me so?

You look at me with sad eyes

And I can’t do anything

But to face your back.


Alive


Loner

FootprintsInTheSand

I’m sitting in the sand

I just don’t know

What I ought to do next

Because I’m bored like hell.

Naïvety, subtlety

Or was it just me?

I pushed people away

Now they seem so far away.

So I’m sitting here

Closing my tired eyes

And shutting my ears

Just hearing the waves of the past.

Can I be gone like the wind?

But I feel like the wind

Though not as free to roam

As freedom seems to be my downfall.

Aha, I contradict myself

But what more have I to lose

When there was nothing more to choose

So instead I just tied my shoes.

I wiped these silent tears

And breathe the air like water

As I got engulfed with the ocean

Of my despair and loneliness.

Soon I found myself ready to stand

Without holding a helping hand

Because I got to be the only one left

With vanishing footsteps in the sand.


Ghost

waiting-woman-3002

You’ve haunted my mind

You’re the unavoidable plague

I have desired.

My skin tingles with excitement

Hearing the sound of your voice

Like the sound of distant shores.

Distance has kept us apart

But memories of you still linger

Every time I see someone smile.

Let me tell you that I’m a ruined soul

I’m the piece of crap everyone throws away

When the thing has outlasted its value.

You’re my angel, my hope

My only connection from insanity

From the past I used to walk on to.

I hope you’re well for here I am

Still searching for light from the darkness

That has kept me from reaching out to you.


Cross

Sometimes I ask God

When it rains it really pours

And why humans have to cry

Everyday until they die.

Sometimes I ask God

Why everything seems wrong

Because humans have to choose

When they know they’ll lose.

Sometimes I ask God

Why bad things happen

When people only want love

But ask more of what they have.

And sometimes I ask God

When I’m just really down

Like I am carrying the ills of the world

This faith the only thing I can hold.
