009: I grieve
AstralPotato Jul 9
I grieve for the time of the past;
Hoping they would've last.
I grieve for the future untold;
Without you for me to hold

008: Did you?
AstralPotato Jun 2020
Did you ever cry?
Cried to heart your hearts content?
Did you ever ache?
For all the things that came to an end?

I chose to be happy
But it was all in vain
Because happiness starts
Right after the rain

But it seems that the rain
Will never going to end
Rainbows were only illusions
The rain will start again

007: Unspoken
AstralPotato Apr 2020
The agony of knowing
Things have been broken
Yet you stayed silent;
Little words left unspoken

006: Lackluster
AstralPotato Apr 2020
Let me drown in the sea of joy
Of unwavering happiness and delight
Retrieve me from this dark abyss
Where I wandered without light

005: Pain
AstralPotato Mar 2020
Moving on isn't about
Taking the pain away
Or making it obsolete
It just becomes bearable

004: Soul's Lament
AstralPotato Feb 2020
It was easy to cast a smile anytime,
Hiding beneath those wordless mimes.
It's hard to see what those smiles meant,
Because it's harder to express a soul's lament.
I'm okay...
But not really

003: War Cry
AstralPotato Jan 2020
In times of war's end, the soul always bled
And cried for hundred and thousands of times
But it wasn't merely mourning for all the dead
It mourned the guilt of being the only one alive
(The number signifies my one stanza poems)

002: Silence
AstralPotato Jan 2020
There was this silence, this empty little silence
Offering two of its very existence:
Peacefully sweet for a confused mind,
Deafeningly loud like a depressing bind
(The number signifies my one stanza poems)

001: Exhausted
AstralPotato Dec 2019
It felt like falling into a deep pit
An endless fall; an empty beat
Deep and hollow into that darkness
Exhausted; my soul only wants rest
a stanza of tiredness... (The number will signify my short poems lol)

Little stars, little scars
AstralPotato Aug 2019
The smiles you bring weren't the brightest
But they were sincere; I knew it best
Like thousand little stars in a dark night
Not too bright yet enough to shed some light

So when you finally built a mask of joy
Surprised I was, it felt like a decoy
The unwavering mask resembled you too much
Too much yet too firm and lifeless as such

Do you think this is all your journey to venture?
Seeing you smile in pain was a torture
The thousand little stars dimming with the dark
Were now thousand little scars; gone all the spark

I have watched you from afar to know it all
The mishaps and the pain where you suffer and fall
You have told no one of this side of yourself
But we're here to listen, if you mind do tell

This is not the end, remember this
You are not alone in this great abyss
We are here behind you waiting to be reached
For when you fall we'll get you back on your feet

We'll be venturing this darkness together
We'll bring back the little stars who faltered

Putol na ang pakpak
AstralPotato Jul 2019
Isang pagkakamali biglang nabura
Nabura lahat ng tamang ginawa
Isang pagkakataon ang ipinusta
Ipinusta ang akala niya ay tama

Tama ba na sabihing umalis ka?
Umalis sa kadenang kinasusuplutan?
Tama ba na sabihing lumipad ka?
Kung putol na ang pakpak at wala ng liliparan?

Humayo ka, lumaban ka, yan ang sabi nila
O kay daling sabihin ng dilang matalinhaga
Ngunit sa parehas na dilang iyon ka nalugmok
Makalilipad pa ba ang napilayang lamok?
I'm just so stressed af

My Only Light
AstralPotato Apr 2019
Deep within the darkness
I lay staring at the sky
With nothing but emptiness
And of defeaning silence's cry

Into these hollow walls, I stay
Awake from the unending nights
From the quiet tavern, I pray
For my soul to take flight

The birds I've heard years ago
To the sunrise that casts at dawn
Here I am away from the echo
Of the living; I'm left all alone

This is my cave, my home
For years I waited on a throne
With nothing else, from sight
Just my darkness, my only light
I was feeling all trapped these past few months; trapped within the cards I've laid out myself. Sympathizing with a character from a book which I think completely reflected me was what this poem brought along. This poem is heavily inspired by Mitch Albom's Time Keeper protagonist: Dor.

Crowded places; happy faces
Greeted a person with such ablaze
Offering radiance which resonated the sun
Defying his sense out of phase

But deep within, his soul conjured
A sense of loneliness emanated from his heart
From a mask he wore in fervent solitude
Trying to dig his oldest scar

From there he felt what he once endured
Faltering, as he ventured out
Scorched deep into his core
Old feelings trying to break out

AstralPotato Jul 2018
Obsidian black; crimson red
Amidst the abyss, the souls have bled;
In shattered tears; the ticking years
Everything ought to disappear

On this empty journey, I stopped midway
To try to reminisce, to subtly replay
This sempiternal emptiness I feel
Those unheard voices I hear

Somewhere down the chasm below,
There it lies, the blackest of snow
Darkest and solitary it may seem
But peace may be found from within

This steepy cliff on where I lie,
On the very same cliff where I might die
To reminisce what happened then
I wonder if this would be the end
I was too hung up digging my good ol' poems and I have to constantly ask myself how did I even write this good back then?

The Art of Death
AstralPotato Jul 2018
Darkness filled with malice,
Malice of killing intent;
The courage to slaughter
From anger it starts to foster

Hatred, it cries for blood
Anguish, an abominable voice
The art of death, he pondered
Will be a lovely gift to gather

Slowly, my child, slowly
Take your time, take it easy
****** isn't something to rush
Or you'll take away its lush

[The pleasure of torture;
The art of death]
Made last summer... I was just so ****** back then..  guess it was too exaggerated lol

Supressed inside a box
Were feelings you tried to keep
Unsure of what is to come
So you tried to bury them deep

Created a wall surrounding yourself
Evading every single person
Not answering any knocks they sent
Afraid of the world beyond

"But is that it," they asked
"Succumbing in the darkness you won't last"
But it's better to be left alone
You find peace where the sun hasn't shown

Beautiful Sorrow
AstralPotato Mar 2018
You were a gem in my eyes
A beauty in disguise
A temporary delight
A sorrow in the night
Too short lol

AstralPotato Mar 2018
Sometimes I wonder how it would turn out
For me to disappear
For me not to exist

Sometimes I wonder if you'll even remember me
Is it all a lie?
Is it an illusion?

I wonder what if
What if
Is all I wonder

Would you be able to recognize?
To miss or even remember?

I wanted to disappear
To the void
Where no one's around
To hurt me or console

I wanted to disappear
Atleast then I wouldn't feel
What I've been longing for
Longing for so long
Another past poem / song I've stumbled upon

Untold Melody
AstralPotato Mar 2018
Not a love song
Not a sad song
Just words to express
Things I've tried to supress

Not a love song
Not a sad song
Nor any kind of song
Its a melody untold
Trying to rummage upon my old poems and found this

AstralPotato Mar 2018
Tears welled up endlessly
Like a little fountain not knowing when to stop
Feeling nothing
Feeling empty

Coldness should've freeze the flow
But it didn't; it never did.
It was from that thought
That things never really end up the way it should
I was feeling empty last night that I can't even sleep. Even though that was the case, I feel like crying without a reason. And I just had to scribble these things.

— The End —
