Hopeful
Umi 7d
Don't abandon hope even if your soul despairs
As even the most graceful flowers wilt,
They too shall bloom again,
When the time is right.

Your gaze is caught in a unsettling haze
Just where are you..?

Unwavering
Umi Oct 2021
The air is crackling,
As your mind is being liberated,
Freedom is undoubtedly near,

As time is moving,
Erosion wears away even the tallest of mountains,
Relentlessly, tearing even the strongest bonds asunder,

Yet, it rekindles,
Unwavering, our flame resists,
The loitering dark.

Even if its light vanishes one day, I'll be with you in the dark

Truthseeker

Behind the deceiving lies of despair,
Lie the hurtful words which your heart can't bear,
Sometimes the truth, is just despicable.
Burning those who get too close,
Nothing changes.

14 years I could enjoy your presence
14 times you dried my tears
14 seasons I couldn't let go of you

But today you left
leaving only a shell,
And a broken heart.

I miss you Boncuk

Waiting
Umi May 2021
Seven ideals across the sea,
Distorted in between them gathers envy,
Invisioned in the ever so consuming dark lays gluttony,
Contemptious alike the stars sits Pride,
Needy, Greed like a plant awaits the sun,
Elusive like the moon Wrath turns away,
Like fire Lust burns to cinders,
As sloth never even showed up.
They all were dreamers,
Swept away by the ancient tide,
Only their will remains,
Only Envy remembers,
Ever so waiting.

A small King
Umi May 2021
Sitting proud on the brightest throne,
The heart of a lion is not easy to tame,
As such, he burns down all before him,
Only to be brought down, by the test of time.

I devote this poem to the brightest star in the constellation Lion.

May you be unharmed,
You who once gave me my name,
As even the winds change direction,
And the strongest boulders erode over time,
My only wish over this severed bond..
Is for you to be lead to happiness.
To shine, even in the darkest of times.

Hydrangea
Umi Feb 2021
Bitter is the taste of defeat
Choking its grasp onto your soul
Like poison it drags you to sleep,
Until it swallows you whole,
As the petals call for the leaves falling,
It is time for you to leave.
Just to be resurected once the time is right.

Blue
Umi Dec 2020
So noble it reflects the path of kings,
With elegance, blooming from within flowers,
Carried through the air, on the gentle wings of butterflies,
And the stormy oceans, with no doubt reflect it with mighty passion,
Today, as the day before, I have been feeling blue too,
As my spirit grows, I still find myself unable to face my demons,
When will this day of fate finally come ?
As the sun breaks through the clouds,
I sigh,
Knowing it will be a day like any other;
For now, just let me rest my eyes.

Fading
Umi Dec 2020
Eradic, flashing are the relentless thoughts
rushing through my mind,

A sensation, too painful to take,
as it engulfs me whole,

Until even my very soul,
has faded into madness,

As the thrills rushing through my veins must be set free,

Cold, empty, lifeless metal,
are the last touch my body can experience,

As it flows into a dark puddle,

I am fading

The lone Queen of the North
Umi Nov 2020
With no expectations, she waits,
Although it has been so long, she lost sight of it,
Unable to get a taste of victory, she watched from afar,
Restricted in movement, trapped in her icy prison, the only companions she had, were the never ending streams of thoughts,
Undecided, she contemplates;
Shall she wait some more, clinging desperately to the last remaining bit of hope, before it softly, gently slips away from her grasp,
Or, should she give up, with none the wiser to what could have been,
As she engulfs herself within the somber feeling of seclusion,
Her conscious, filled with envy for those who experience the warmth of love, slips away once more,
As the cold wind takes its toll,
She stood there, still,
Ever so proudly.

~ Umi
Nov 2020 · 357
Dust
Umi Nov 2020
An abandoned thought,
A restless sigh,
Dust remains,
Where all has gone into nothing,
Deserted, uncared for, it lays there, waiting,
Staying, until it is swept away,
In the course of time,
Carried away,
With a breeze.

Tonight Stars are Easygoing
Umi Nov 2020
The gentle stars sail through the river of the milkyway,
With no hesitation, with no violence,
As huge pressure usually drags them down,
And their fiery nature blows them apart, almost flaring occasionally,
Granting them not to rest a single moment,
But tonight, they allow themselves a moment of joy,
Dancing across the cosmic theater,
As if their carefree attitude, would carry them across the nightsky
Who knows where they are headed ?
And so, they wander, ever so..
Easygoing.

The Wind is Roaring
Umi Oct 2020
On a distant planet,
The cold wind is seething, unmatched,
Breaking the barriers of the azur beauty,
And eventually the barries of sound itself,
As it rages on, without ceasing.

Neptune is truly beautiful, isn't it ?

Comfort
Umi Oct 2020
Within the depths of sorrow,
And the soulcrushing agony of despair,
And those drying tears shed by misery,
Lies a dim, yet remarkable light of hope, still shining in the cold, unforgiving hall of your very memories,
Move forward with your ambition!
Never let that light escape your grasp
Until all is over,
You may rest in my arms for now,
Until your woes are carried away,
By my warm gentle embrace.

Autophobia
Umi Sep 2020
To fear the unknown,
A gentle soul, engulfed in the flames of its own insecurities,
All alone, it craves a delicate touch, a sign, or just a simple smile,
Weakened by the taste of isolation, prohibited from ever reaching the truth, one may become bitter, or filled with unending hate for others.
Why were they allowed the gift, to roam free, to experience love,
Scattered alike moonlight, are the thoughts of such damaged mind,
Nethertheless this dismay shall take over, until nothing remains,
And so, this soul is burnt by its own heart, slowly withering away in the never ending stream of time, softly, gently giving up all hope,
Until that fateful day may come, and another caring soul rescues it,
But, for now, as all sound and colours fade into angst and despair,
It shall rest, in the confinement of the abyss.
Continuously wondering, when the day may come,
Wondering if it will ever feel again.

Wrath
Umi Aug 2020
Bursting forth,
shocking, thrilling is the call of anger,
Enveloping the mind, losing control, softly, gently,
And in its destructive path, it seeks to destroy,
Destroy those whom caused this uncontrollable hate to spread,
Like poisoning the own soul, it rages, riots and rampages as it sees fit,
Until the last bit of its power runs out like a dying ember in a storm,
Though the damage has already been dealt,
And the wind of remorse keeps roaring,
Is it worth to salvage what was lost ?

~ Umi
Jul 2020 · 261
Comforted
Umi Jul 2020
An imagined realm within an ordinary room,
Envisioned to be cut off from all of the outside world,
As long as the doors and windows are closed,
In such regard, no word is to be spoken,
No emotions ever to be felt for the sake of that dream,
No, such impure things are to stay out,
In order to protect the heart, in order to protect ones mind,
So one may relax, in this void,
Where even the liveliest flower
Shall burn.

In the Clouds
Umi Jun 2020
Lurking in the haze,
As wind blows over lovely flowers,
Friction, a crackling noise from afar comes closer,
Until with brilliance, a lightning hits a nearby field,
As the scorched Earth burns away all that was beautiful that day,
Until only the ashes and dying embers are a memory of us,
As long as this love lasts, with patience all will be reborn,
If only we don't give in to the fear of being hurt again.
So, won't you wait with me ?

~Umi

With Bow in Hand
Umi May 2020
Empty the mind and listen to your fear,
Seeking, waiting for the target to be near,
Take aim, let go of your worries,
Let them drift away to a far place,
So then you may move on with grace,
Until the wind is against you,
And you enter the storm of defeat.

Lotus
Umi Mar 2020
As the moon chases away the sun,
There in the loitering dark a flower blooms in silence,
As the skilled roots dig deep into her surrounding soil,
And the strengh of the trunk shows of its might,
The wisdom of its leafs reveal the beauty of life,
Until all knowledge is blown away again,
When winter creeps forth.

My most Precious Treasure
Umi Jan 2020
All I want to see after a hard day of work,
Is your smile, your warm embrace, your gentle touch,
Your tenderness, your determination, are what breezes over this exhaustion and gives me back my will to fight on, for a better furture for the both of us,
Your eyes are what make me shine, even though I am barely a reflection of the light you are giving me,
As the sun shines day by day, let me be your illusiounary moon to brighten up your every night, gently softly like the wind tends to do over your long, beautiful curly hair,
Every word you say, every form of laughter you give me, makes my heart just skip a beat,
So that is why,
That is why I will never suffice in satisfying your every need,
But I am determined too,
Determined to make your every step, every breath you take, easier,
Now come my dear let me take your burdens and bear them myself,
For you, the weight of the whole world isn't enough to stop me
From loving you

Yours truly

Pure Furies

Hate
Umi Dec 2019
On the ashes of love hate may rise,
Cold, unforgiving and empty, such demise,
Yet its comfort and power are undeniyable,
Eating one's very heart away,
It will rage on, until not even ashes remain,
And only regret blooms forth,
Within a betrayed desolate soul.

Time goes By
Umi Dec 2019
I cannot seem to fathom what is wrong with me any longer,
My abilities degrade by the minute, fading into dust along the long way of this distortion deep within my very self,
All this time now, I have failed, again, then again, and again,
Wandering through an answerless world, I do not belong anywhere,
I cannot compare, I don't have the strengh to any longer,
And yet, within this despair, in this dying heart, there is a faint wish,
To move forward, to never give up,
But, the flame of which weakens,
And finally turns to ash,
How much will I be able to do,
Before it all burns away in front of my very eyes ?
At least, I won't need to die..
In a dream..

Fear
Umi Dec 2019
A strong emotion resonating within all of us,
Trembling, shaking, crying as a response to what we wish not to encounter, such distress eats away at the soul,
Crawling slowly, ghasly into ones mind till it posesses it completely,
Sometimes with no reason or trigger, brushing over you like a shiver,
Until showered in cold sweat and pale as the gentle light of the moon;
With such misfortune and pain we shall finally break,
This is the emotion knowing you better than yourself,
Wrapping itself gently around you till it caught you in its embrace,
And consumed your mind within it whole,
Such misery, for all with anxiety,
And yet it only calls forth despair,
Blinding you in your own agony,
Until nothing remains.

Like a Breeze
Umi Dec 2019
Again a year fades into thin memories,
Bittersweet we tend to look back on what we accomplished, what we longed for, or wether we have come closer to fulfilling a certain goal,
But not I,
As for me, this year passed like a single day, it was over before I began to realize what was happening arround me,
Softly, gently, decisively, the seasons passed together with all their glory,
First came the Springs dream; Delicate flowers blooming, the comforting warmth of the sun, awoke the sleeping earth from its cold slumber,
Then Summer; scorching heat accompanied by occasionally sweet cool breezes brush accros each field and meadow,
The colours of Autumn, the stormy wind blowing away the dying leafs of the trees, carrying rain and sometimes a cold along with it,
And now Winter is finally arriving, giving all a silver lining,
And sure enough, its harsh cold presence will pass too
Like a gentle breeze

A dreadful Wish
Umi Nov 2019
I wish to be free,
A dream of a stormy night,
a snowy meadow kissed by the moonlight,
When wind dashes and dances across the fields
When everything is asleep
I wish to depart.
And just be.

The first Snowflake
Umi Nov 2019
A silver lining is foreseen, as the sky has painted itself grey,
There, in the cold, rough clouds a drop of water begins to freeze,
Floating elegantly, gently, or even playfully toward the ground,
Father frost already has bidden the meadows and hills his blessing,
The animals are ready to slumber tight throughout the sunless season,
And as this single flake is landing, its brothers and sisters follow,
Cuddling up together in a lovely manner to make snow,
And cover the world in a icy, wet, yet delicate blanket,
Sleep well mother earth,
I hope to see your blessing when you wake up from your slumber,
The flowers of spring will then declare,
Your lively awakening.

As the Leafs Fall
Umi Oct 2019
As the leafs fall I call out your name,
Oh you, who comes with change, who comes uninvited,
The night creeps around in an early hour,
Yet I can't see you coming,
Just where are you hiding ?
Oh first snow, father frost,
I await you.
In the loitering darkness,
Of a lonesome, cold evening.

~ Umi
