Fairness

A piece of fresh fruit
Divide into equal shares
Some must get the pit

Forgotten

A buried world
Locked up in the veil of time
Promising things you’ve imagined

They crept closer
Deliberate in their step
Wanting a piece of the magic

The gates shattered
Dismayed at ill-set intent
Guarding what’s left of the slaughter

Nightfall

As the darkness shone
Intimidating all in sight
As stars bring down a wave of silver
Conducting the song of night
Played by forests dark
By all living things, together
Forming a cluster of softness

The frightening intensity of the dazzling darkness
Makes us fear the unearthly peace
It comes in swarms
Overwhelming our senses
With quiet
A feeling unlike any other
The darkness invited us in
Engulfing us with magic

Don’t light the dark
For it is your friend
Enjoy the show
Until the end

And as the sun rose
The world looked back dreamily
And wondered if it was real

Masks

Do we ever see
Everything in whole
Or just the outside

Is the covering protection
Or just a prison
We shut ourselves in

Are we too shy
To be who we are
Without shame

The masks on ourselves
We put ourselves
Hide ourselves
From ourselves

The Road To You

This is it
The way back home
I feel the familiar smell of the air
The sound of nothing
That surrounds everything
And makes it into something

A trip down memory lane
Yet this time it’s the real lane
Still I can’t help feeling sentimental
Watching the road extend in front
Leading me to my one and only
Home

Is everything exactly
As I left it
Maybe a small change here and there
An extra flower, some extra shelves
The people inside also change
Time shows no mercy
Will you still be the same
When I see you
But inside of me I know
This is home
This is where I want to be
Always

But the world is calling
I need to oblige
To reach places far away
To embrace more people
The world is never at a standstill
Always changing
Never once looking back
Like we do

Lock the precious memories in a box
Keep it safe in the depths of your heart
Should you ever feel lost
In the world that never stands still
Open it
Feel it
Remember

Infinity

See the stars
Farther than you think
Unreachable

Imagine
A world without end
Emptiness

What are us
But a tiny speck
On the fabric of space

Are we alone
Or just lonely
With company

Understand
The existence
That lays beyond us

Unthinkable
Unfathomable
Intangible

Up/Down

Up

Walking along
The streets alone
The lights shone
On the cobblestone

I marvel
As the stars sparkle
Islands of light
The puddles reflect
Like silver

Down

Empty streets
Melting sleet
Freezing wind
Chills the feet

Clouds hover
The moon covered
Lights dim
Feeling grim
Like nothing

Waiting

Pacing to and fro the door
Counting footmarks on the floor
Fall leaves settle on the grass
Seconds pile like an hourglass

Waiting for a sure reply
Wondering if you’re dropping by
Random thoughts and doubts collide
Oh, and I’m right outside

Love

Love is cheerful
Love is light
Love fills you up with delight

Love is singing
Love is glee
Love makes you dance happily

Love is sudden
Love is sweet
Love comes random when you meet

Love is solemn
Love is right
Love is sweet words when in sight

Happy late Valentine’s Day, everyone!
