Regrets

Untouched by the raindrops, in my shelter, protected from the sun, and the storms, the song of the birds at the dawn, went unheard, as I stayed engaged, aloof, in this play called life, another day passes, another step forward, one more memory slides down the lane,

And one more sigh adds up…

The retreat

Stood at the middle of the room, under the gaze of all, the questioning eyes, the judging mind, the nods, little sympathy, condemnations, from those that do not understand me, and I closed my eyes, covered my ears, slowly walked out of the room, not to escape, not to be free, but to quiet the heart, still the mind, and jump into the abyss, where no longing has survived, no wish has found the wings,

I gave up what I came for, I no longer need it…

Alone

The burning of the lamp, the flickering of the light, the swaying of the flame, the warmth in the air, and then your face, the darkness seems like a distant dream to me, and yet this heart is thirsty, fearful of the rain falling outside, and the flowers that will blossom tomorrow morning, the leaves that will be greener than before, and in that feast of life that awaits outside, we will not be alone, we will not be just for ourselves, at each other’s side, and that keeps me up whole night, and makes me write…

Shadow

The shadow is not all dark, you can still see if you want, the finest hours don’t come knocking at the door with a smile, and the moist eyes tell a story, not always the saddest, willing to see and daring to listen, one can survive the moment, for this moment is light, the next is just a shadow…

The Bell

The bell kept ringing,

First it seemed from a long distance, mild and slow, then it came closer, as if to signal something urgent, in a rush, was that panic, and soon it was inside our head, ringing like a maniac, loud, fast, for what, and to what end, did you hear that too, as time kept ticking away, as the moments got heaped upon another, as the end came nearer, as I gave up the search, as you became a distant dream, as you slipped away, did you feel the same too,

And the bell kept ringing all the while,

I could not hear you…
