Slip beneath the waves,
One comes after the other.
There’s no time to
gasp
for air.

Oh listen while I sing to thee,
My song is meant for thee alone,
My thought imparts it's melody,
And gives the soft impassioned tone.

I sing of joy, and see thy smile
That to the swelling note replies,
I sing of love and feel the while
The gaze of thy love-beaming eyes.

If thou wert far, my voice would die
In murmurs faint and sorrowing
If thou wert fake - in agony
My heart would break, I could not sing.

Then listen while I sing to thee,
My song is meant for thee alone,
And now that thou art near me
I pour a full impassioned tone.


Xxxxx

For someone extra special ....xxxx

I met a man once, his name was Joe,
And he knew just what to say,
Though hope was all I asked him for,
It was something he could not give.

And something in the way he spoke,
Or perhaps the daydreams he’d deny,
Made me realize that life,
Was nothing but a lie.

People play such tragic games,
They yearn for what they cannot give,
And when at last they reach their goals,
They want some other reason to live.

I met a child once,
Her name untold.
Her eyes were shades of grey.
But when I looked deep in those eyes,
I knew she’d never stay.

And something in the way she spoke,
Or perhaps the starlight in my eyes,
Made me realize that life,
was nothing but a lie.

Recently found a collection of cringey poems I wrote as a teenager.
Here's one:


Are you horrified by life?
Recoiling at its after-taste.

The people and the signs in the streets
jitter randomly with soft menace
signifying nothing and offering no comforting truth.
Luridly lit faces in the doorway
and the bleary letters only read as confusion...
Encaged for the night in limbo.

Luridly flood-lit faces in the doorway
and the bleary sign-posted
letters only read as confusion...

You're encaged for the night in limbo.

Did you see his neck swell up:
The rope tinged blue to match
Your silent disillusionment.

You can't wail a cry anymore,
but still you can't suppress the voice,
under your sheets at night like a child...
To wail makes us weak,
so
Instead you rise up
and enmesh
others in the plight you know.

You set your sights on sin
Because the looming mallet returns
silently in your 'mares
to say hello
and knock you to the ground.

Why wait? Why trust -
it's too winding a street
- when you could destroy,
crash and crumble those in your periphery
those who seek love
until they too are acrid
bitter
alone.

You won't talk about it,

will you?

Defiance

When I look at myself on a good day,
I see a vision of confident youth
soaring through the glass…
I’d rather that,
than your love.

An evergreen, thriving and lasting;.
a healthy dose of self-doubt
and self-effacement
emboldens my glance.

I see you’re taking care of yourself nowadays
and think you’ve got one up on me
I’m ‘aged, sour and boring’...

No!
Taller and wiser
and with a beauty unlike yours:
one not ephemeral or fleeting.

A blossom that has broken the mould
and kissed perpetuity.

Well, I don’t fall for your ‘live fast die young’ tripe.
No!
I’m here for good.
For a long while.

To do the things I want to,

like a defiant teenager.

I need to breathe..
Take a break, take a break..
Running away, time goes fast
Seconds, minutes, hours, days.
No time at all in an endless universe.

I feel you gaze into my darkness,
Searching for life, gasping
How could something like love
Hurt me. Thundering above

Running from you into deep forests...
Never expected ...
That much silence...
in a place of billion lifeforms.
Silence. Laid to rest


The cycle of silence
