My thoughts
whirl about
like a sudden
gust.

You are
to me,
as the restless wind
is to the
petals of a flower;

fleeting,
out of reach,
ungraspable.

A garden trowel in a patch of irradiated weeds

An odometer in an endless maze of MickeyD's

An encyclopedia in a pawn shop full of tweakers

A love song on a boombox with broken speakers

May I present several examples of useless things with nothing to do

Now if you think those're bad, you should see what I'm like...

Hope is a horrible thing to be without.
Without it, you would surely drown in doubt.
A lot of people say they feel hopeless.
Here's the thing: the definition of hope
Is desire for or expectation
For something to happen.
Based on that definition, it's impossible to be without hope.
So, if hope never died, never left,
Where did it go?
What if your fear
that nothing would change
or get better overpowered your hope
That things would change
Or get better?
How do you get it back?
You tell fear you're not afraid anymore.
Then you show it the door.
He is a great master
I don't underestimate him
He tells all sort of stories
Declares some true
Makes people believe in them
Contrary to what he preaches
"If you believe, you don't know
So don't believe
Seek to know the truth"
Does he believe in his stories?
Or has he lived those stories
Every character, every setting himself?
What he preaches, latter should be his case
How many can seek and realise
During this birth
It's anybody's guess
Seeking is not so easy
It takes many births
According to scriptures
He refers
Till then shall we live and die again and again
Without belief?
He talks of Shiv Purana. He talks of Adi Yogi (Shiva). He talks of Saptarshi. He talks of Adi Yogi disseminating divine knowledge - 112 ways of enlightenment - to Saptarshi. Did he live to see the story for himself and not believe anything? Did he travel back in time? Or does his enlightenment encompass everything at once to know what's true, what's not true?

Can you live without hope?
Can you live without friends?
Can you live without love?
Can you live alone
until the bitter end?
And if you can,
can you say you were happy?
That your life felt whole?
When it's all said and done,
Do you really believe
You were better off alone?
I'm not judging.
I'm just trying to understand.
How can you be truly happy
Without wanting to embrace someone
Or at least hold their hand?

I miss you
You know who I miss
You, who wanted touch my hair.
You, who wanted take care  of me
when bad situation come.
You, who wanted be there
in each circumstances.
Where are you my friend?
Can I call you still my friend?
I miss you…in my sadness.

Why you left me?
Probably never get this answer.
Can I call you still my friend?
I miss you…in my loneliness.

My heart is broken
Without you.

Soul is void,
With you.

And I reconcile,
Heal and arise,
Within you.
Such strange kinda love
