Leaving the forest in an enlightened mood,

A hemlock root did intrude.

Sending me crashing upon my knee.

And the crow flew away mocking me.
Apologies to the reader, and Mr. Frost, for my state of mind. We seem to have lost everything that made us bind. Hellopoetry would not take this when I titled it Alternate Truth
I used to read your poems
but lately you don't write
you're silent and aloof
you know that isn't right.
You can't close a door once opened
you can't abolish all your dreams
you're a poet of the heart
mustn't fall apart at the seams.
Say what you can in words
they speak the message true
spoken from the heart
the poems will see you through.
A hermit's not your style
a recluse, you are not
never give up writing
of things that you've been taught.
I used to read your poems
I'd read them once again
if you would send them out
(this one's from a poet friend)

"Keep your eyes closed, love. sometimes all you have to listen is to what the sound of the waves tells you to do."

When I was much younger, beaches were my second favorite places. I still love watching waves as they go by, crashing against each other and the whole process repeating all over again.

people who
genuinely
actually

The emptiness in my eyes,
The truth behind my lies,
The fall before my rise,
And the goodbyes;

It scares me.

The dark beneath my skin,
The light within my sins,
The voice that loudly sings,
And my broken wings;

It scares me.

The wounds I can't heal,
The pain I can't feel,
The loss I can't deal,
And when I am real;

It scares me.

The silence in my little talks,
The stillness in my moonlit walks,
The thought of separate ways,
And my numbered days;

It scares me.

The demons under my bed,
The words spinning in my head,
The blood in my sweat,
And my cold breath;

It scares me.

“Falling in love” is a contradiction in itself, because in love there is only the rising, the ascending, not the falling.
You can not fall in love, but rather, rise.
it's been a strange trip
trying to get to the point
where I know myself

I can't take that burden
Why do you put it to me?
I can't sustain that wound
Why do you give it to me?

A dream that's not true,
a dream that rises fear
Why does that nightmare
breaks my sleep out?
The sky that's full of darkness
and it doesn't give me shine;
Why should I look at that sky?

The game that misguides me forever
and all my goodness are lost there
I don't wanna be addicted to that game!
Who don't want my happiness,
even in danger, who don't care about me
Let them be my loved ones always.

I ask nothing to you, just wipe out my sins
with your infinite mercy.
Take my thirst away
and guide me to the right path
My Lord, keep me tied to your bond, please!

I hope, you are doing fine,
but maybe you've forgotten me!
I love you, sweetie
Why do you stay away from me?
Won't you come back to me?
Won't you sit next to me again?
Maybe you wouldn't walk with me,
on the dewy grass anymore!

I still dream of you
before the sunrise
Even I still make my day
with your love.
I have enjoyed so many rays
by sitting with you
All those imageries are dancing
in the morning flowers
and the sky blue.

Often you had been coming to the lake
in the afternoon with barefoot anklets
and I had been keeping you company
there till the dusk.
Those memories of your love
come to my mind always.
My heart cries and hurts,
though your eyes are smiling!

The afternoon and the evening river miss you;
The sun departs by the touch of the dusky sky
but you are not enjoying it with me!
I also miss you, maybe I'll find you
in the moon and the stars.
I want the moonshine comes
to my window every night!
