Darkness

darkness-hd-wallpapers

 

Behind

this smile

is a

sadness

so deep,

a pain

so raw

even shadows

stay away;

behind

this laugh

is a

secret

well hidden,

a resentment

so smouldering

even hell

rejects it.

Swim

with me

in these

murky waters;

wallow

in the

mud,

for everyone

has their

skeletons,

everyone

has their

tales

of woe.

Remember Me

This is an old poem that was published in my college paper, Chi-Rho, back in 2002 (I changed a stanza though) ^_^

Remember me
when
the leaves
begin to fall
and
you have
nowhere else to go
Remember me
when
birds
fail to sing
and
joy
can not be found
Remember me
when darkness
envelops the land
and
monsters
terrorize your mind
Remember me
most of all
when
the earth
sings again
and that
my love
helped conquer it all.

Hypnagogia

How do you go back to a world you feel strongly disconnected from? Where you’ve been heartlessly yanked out and where everyone is engrossed in their own business that you feel like an intruder? You stand in the middle of a crowd who seems to be in a timeless fast-forward mode that you can’t reach out to even one. You watch them having fun; you hear their voices which are a mixture of mirth, sorrow, fun, confusion, hope, anger and regret that you feel so alien. You don’t belong here, that you’re sure of but there’s that vague sense of familiarity; being one of them. No, you are one of them – weren’t you?

There was a time when you were one of them. Now you’re not. You’re just a vessel; no soul, no spirit. You feel so tiny in a vast world. You long to be part of it. Somehow you remember a shared laugh, a happiness, a oneness. It’s all gone though. You want it back but you’re outside, looking in. You want with a wanting that can’t be quenched and though its grip is surprisingly light escape is still bleak. Slowly you realize that despite of your longing, going back to how it was and moving forward to how it will-should be will be very hard. Not because people are harsh. Not because most of your family and friends have abandoned you; and certainly not because you are truly lost. It’s simply because it has always been tough fighting one’s self.
