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

Inspired by the song Night, by Ludovico Einaudi

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

Inspired by the song The Road To You, by Stefano Guzzetti

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

Walking With Happiness II — The Call

Gold
The color of wheat
The autumn wind
So sweet
I see a vision
Of our past
And the shadows
They cast
Night and day
I regret
All the hardships
That we’ve met
Is a tear
A pearl

Night and day
It leaves me thinking
What happened to
The old times
We were
Together
Walking with happiness

It was warm and lovely
Back then, when
The whole world was
In our hands
The memories
Come back to me
Why did I set
The barrier
That keeps us away
From each other

Night and day
It leaves me wondering
Why I let go
The old times
We were
Together
Walking with happiness

Night and day
I think it through
I never can tell you
The way I want to
Heart to heart
The closeness
That saves us from
Loneliness
But I left you
Something I shouldn’t do
And it leaves me dreaming
We are
Together,
Walking with happiness
Side by side
Forever,
Walking with happiness

A response to a poem written by Silver, Walking With Happiness

Which is in turn inspired by the song by The Best Pessimist

Barrier

Beating a steady tone
Is it a heart, or just a heart?
Else why am I sad
When we’re apart?

Far, far away
Where I cannot see
If you are looking
At me

Is distance a barrier
Or just a number
That separates
One another

Dreams are bridges
That connect
Our souls
Direct

I’m dreaming
Hoping
Wanting
Wishing

Are you there
Out there
Somewhere
Nowhere…
