Twilight

18 Oct

Twilight

She wouldn’t sleep tonight
Too loud it rained outside.
She sighed and no one heard
She cried and no one stirred
She leapt and touched the sky
She had now learnt to fly
She landed by a stream
And woke up from her dream.
Yet, she couldn’t sleep tonight
For too loud it rained outside.
Reality bites, they said.
She gnawed the words instead.
Her fumes of glory rose
While by her tomb, she stood close.
Leaving the sobs behind,
Of every sorts and kind.
And she would sleep tonight
Even if too loud, it may rain outside.
Sorry, the title has NOTHING to do with the movie/ book of the same title. Apologies…

the Longing

29 Aug

“…listen to me”

I can’t speak

“…but you promised”

I swallow the words.

I wish I had spoken then

Reminded you of the vow taken

But,

I held my breath

choked back my words,

strangled and suffocated.

I suffered,

the hurt and the pain.

I wanted out

But I stayed in,

Longing for the exit

I fizzled out, I perished.

[I actually wrote this for Rant Poetry Competition but……]

I’m FREE

9 Aug

No, don’t ask me where I am

How far in the distance I’ve gone

Don’t utter, why I did this

Not even what I’m doing

Or who I’m with…

But if you must, ask me how I am.

Whatever that I have become

Wherever that I may be dwelling

And if it all may count some day

If it’d be worth it…

The answers I know

I do not wish to answer,

And of the unknown I too seek.

For where I am, I can’t see it

Far enough into the future.

Where I dwell, I don’t have time

Brooding in the moments, gone.

So all I’ll tell you is I am living

Breathing in and out

Clinging to the bread I get…

Feeds sprout from the ground

Water spout from all around

Horizon is what I follow.

Sun keeps company, Moon lullabies.

Cold blankets me in winter

Heat warms me in summer

In autumn, I yearn; in spring, I dance.

Come what may, I can take it all

So if you must, know I am happy

And know I’m free…
