Amber fire cooled
Smooth over water hardened
To soften the burn.
Uma Sankar Sep 11
Unaware of the intentions
Intoxicated with the hatred and lies
I gulped every bit
from the bowl they offered

You wanted to offer me help
I thought you’re delusional
The realization was late
and remorse made me worse

I wanted to be free
to stop the ride of disgust
But, It kept on dragging
Like the law of inertia

I knew it won’t stop
So, I waited, waited so long
for the engine to corrode
and dismantle to pieces

Now, I am free like a bird
No strings, no cage
And no chasing after mirage
A new voyage to rediscover myself

I wanted to apologise a lot
to the ones I have hurt
to the things I overlooked
And to the special one, you

You should have been my priority
You should have been the focus
The real one in this fake world
The clear one in this blurry world

Hope I still deserve you
Your hand of help
Your words of faith
Your unconditional love!

I wish I could hold on to the words once mine
Like the ocean holds on to it’s tides
Sitting by the shore
My hand no longer in yours
neo Jul 7
she stands there,
wind through her hair,
dazed and unaware,
numb and hopeless,
a broken goddess.

she stands there
waiting for time
to fade her away
into the dark, cold night.

Oh to breathe
tiny imperceivable molecules,
to feel a rush against your skin
from a gradient in the air,
to smell the earth's life cycle
of decay and regeneration,
to see tiny flowers and grand mountains
and the rabbit on the moon,
to wonder and ponder and contemplate:

a finite presence wrapped up and bound
by the laws of nature, bursting with senses:
with awe, with love, with pain, with overwhelming awareness of the incredible unlikelihood of our own existence.

I think that it is a beautiful thing to be alive.
If just not our fleshly desires
     Will persist,
And our hates and proudness
     Will decrease
If just not our fame
     We mind
And soaring profiles
     We try to find

If just.. not...

Then maybe our numbness shall dissipate
And Your loving grace we'll perceive
Much more, we'll feel
And someday, In Your arms, we'll hope forever to be

If just.. not...

Then surely, Our true hope we got, we'll believe
If just not...
A question, are you willing to find? To seek the one you've so for long (even unknowingly) longed for? Or have you, and is willing to continue.. the answers, keep to yourself.   And surely, that hope, will remain. Alleluia
"What's it all about?"
leaves in the wind wonder aloud;
fall mute, contemplate!

Unperturbed, contemplate
