Selfish Misery

All emotions involved
when I miss everyone I love,
constant flashbacks of loneliness.
Sometimes,
words cannot describe
the pain inside,
recycling phrases through vanished lips.
A tortuous feeling distancing the soul,
every breath vacuous.
Why have I been cursed with such?
Let the night take me away,
surround me with love’s void,
thin as paper;
the wind abstaining a touch of memory.
Selfish be misery
suffering all those I love;
faltering my gift until it falls
into an empty well.
Let the night take me away
towards
a loud darkness
with no stars,
orchestrating sadness
towards love’s void,
thin as paper
yet thick as the
selfishness of misery.
Fill my glass with room temperature wine.
Black lit candles light the way
to a bittersweet end.
Why have I been cursed with such?
Selfish be misery,
forcing me to love through pain.
My piano be the keystrokes
of this painful poem
for my children and lover
who remain without me every night
as tonight.
While you dream I remain awake,
filled with violins of tears.
What tears me apart is
not watching over you while you sleep,
only an imagination,
filled with violins of tears.
You should see my strength,
it is only an illusion of my sorrow.
Had it not been for your love
I would have let the darkness take me away.
Selfish be misery,
watching me slowly die
and taking those who I cherish
with me.
A piano be the keystrokes of my lonesome life,
let the night take me away
with misery as selfish as it may be.

In Love Again

Escaping this world

Leaving all behind

Feeling

Young and free

Falling

In love again.

Taking us

above the clouds

We hid

Behind the sun

We danced

At the edge of noon

We walked

on the sea’s horizon

We kissed

Listening to the ocean’s music

Falling

In love again.

Descending

Losing hold

Perturbed eyes

Returning

To this world

The wind’s force

Upon my back

Trusting her

With my vulnerabilities

Closer

To this world

I close my eyes

She Clutches

A tender giant

Never wanting to let go

As we land

On this world

Separated

But

Scarred

By

Memories

Of

Falling

In love

Again!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You Are The Moonlight

While you sleep

I think of you

Wondering

What your dreams are made of,

If I could catch a glimpse

Of your thoughts

In the stars

Shiny dim lights

Pulsating like hearts,

Searching for the moment

You were in my arms

When the moon rises

Your hair dances

With night’s warm breeze

Touching my war scarred face

Finding peace in me,

Your lips

Searching for mine

I can feel them

Surrendering.

Beyond the soul

Distorted pictures

Years of pain

All that is left

Visions of you and I,

A reality

Fantasized

Carried by an ocean’s wave

From the storm

Rough seas

Gently crashing upon the shore

Filling footprints

That walk along the sands

Guided by your essence,

I will be lost

Without you,

The dark spaces

Hollowed emptiness

Shadows of a broken heart

No longer linger,

Permeated by a presence

I will follow,

Firmly holding on

To our memories,

You are the vanguard

Lead me.

You are the compass

Guide me.

You are the night’s brilliance

You are the moonlight.
