HOPE May 2020
I am not my brokenness
Yes I was broken in such a way,
that when I took a glance at thyself
I failed to recognize thyself
I am not my brokenness

They misjudged my brokenness
and reversed it into bitterness,
I was not bitter
It was just a cry of a broken soul
that they failed to recognize but rather level it as weakness
I am not my brokenness

If silence tears were a portion of a million,
at this moment I could have been labelled as one
If they were an ocean full of blessings,
at this very moment my name could have been Abraham
If they were a dwelling palace,
It could have been at the very right hand of the father
I am not my brokenness neither my silent tears

You say you're okay!
But the ocean within your eyes,
Articulate a different prose.

I asked him the other day
"Do you love me?"
He placed my hand in his beating heart
Whispered on my ears with his calming voice
Opened my eyes to read between the lines
And made me taste the liquid from his well
Until butterflies were chanting on our heads
And he said "That is love"

Judging by her never ending smile,
and her melodic laughter,
which hide the cracks,
she looks the happiest,
yet she's just as fractured and empty.

Every word said
Just felt unsaid
Wounds appearing healed
Unnoticeable kept bleeding
Like a drop of water on a loose tap

Only the smell of an ink
With the turn of each page
Wet with each tear,
Understood the procedure
Of her words becoming a prescription

What if humans
were not created to be happy?
Only to exist, then deteriorate,

To the underworld where we belong,
Whatever it is,
Life seems to have no truth.

How vulnerable we were
That night,
we made love
And shed tears
Then broke each others hearts

It should be proof,

And I scribbled you a text
It came back in the twilight,
Not delivered!

Maybe I believed too much in their intimacy
That I unlearned to indoctrinate this brittle heart
Pros and cons of disappointment
Now it all feels like hallucinations
That can never swivel into authenticity
Maybe I just believed much in the tale
Yet they took it as a play
Still I feel broken

When He loves
Its never meaningless
He does it unconditionally

When He provides
Its never insufficient
He does it exceedingly

When He takes on your battle
He doesn't send angels
But He does it himself willingly

When He forgives
He doesn't only do it fourteenth
But He does it seventy times seven

And when He breaks you
He doesn't destroy you
But He does it with grace

I call Him one of a kind

I position my eyes to the east
And bow my head to meditate
More like a consecrated priest
Yet I have not been made great

Two hearts,
meant to beat as one
But yours beat for her
and someone else
Yet you say love isn't suppose to hurt

I idolise it here
And despise it here,

We rekindled our love,
Under the stars,
Looking at the moon
Yet part of me died in here.
HOPE Feb 2022
Incriminating of oneself to criminal prosecution,
Into a place where its dark and cold as highways of California
Hands on my back bound to bottom in chains,
With no where to hide

A long walk to freedom,
As I drag my feet to the right,
And look up in the sky with my eyes closed
Finally, I could see a tiny cloud to liberation of Sunday morning blues.

I found missing pieces,
In this board of riddle I assembled,
And only I realized,
It is not just them incomplete,
So is everything
HOPE Mar 2022
Nor I know the colour of your love,
Have memories that are dear to heart,
Neither a photograph to relive our yesterday

It is just a sound of your name,
I've heard in one of the fantasies,
Though our path never crossed,
Yet my heart yearns for you.

And out of love with you
When truthfulness expired between us.

When my day is done
The heart stop beating
I breath the last breath
Close my eyes for the last time
And the sound of my voice is no more,

Don't shed a tear,
If you've never done
in my breaking moments

Don't come for night vigil,
If you've never came for a visit
in my most trying times

Don't put flowers on my tomb,
If you've never let me smell
the fragrance of the lilies
in my happiest times

Love me now
Hug me now
Wipe off tears
From my teary eyes
At this moment
Before my day is done

Today I'm in awe
Like great miracles
Perfomed a decade ago
That left prophet Habakkuk in awe

Today I tremble down to my knees
Like the Israelites at the red sea
When seeing the impossibilities
Of the sea being divided

As I say goodbye to the roof
That became my umbrella
In the rainy days feeling cold
And gave me warmth

I say goodbye to the house
That became my refuge
And a hiding place
Still I called it Egypt

Goodbye to the place
That denied me peace
But left me in pieces
I couldn't even pace

Today blood
Become thin like water
New relations awaits us
Finally I call it home

Definitely it would be white,

If I fail to keep you closer in my mind,
My ink knows your name,
And to the eternity it shall take you

Separation shall know not our name,
In heaven or on earth,
You are in a place of safety within my pen.

It keeps me sane,
That I keep tears in my pocket

For I know whenever I long for you,
Knowing I'll never see you again,
I'll just unzip and let it all out.

It becomes so transparent,
even when perfectly hidden,
there's never a perfect moment.

Out of all highways,
I driven on with no destination,
And finally finding one within your heart,
Took my eyes of the steering wheel.

The symbol of our love,
Is a moving vehicle,
Forever steady, yet not ready to reach the destination.

By the blood sanctified
Apparelled with righteousness

There is a difference between a father,
And someone you call a "Dad",

A father being only a naming word,
Whereas a dad is a doing word,
who steps in to love, guide, teach,
pick up the the pieces,
And have you experience the beauty of your creation through his eyes

doctorate acknowledgement
Written her name on it
It all meant nothing

Its the bruises she wore
Wounds she had clothed with
Oceans she drowned on
Mountains top she fell from

A wounded lion continuing
To rule in the jungle
Like a general in the kingdom
Who is recognised by scars

Overweighs our struggling edges
We walk to find the pace,
countless sighs along the way,
But we will get there

It has become one of the songs,
that we sing, yet we lost the meaning

We sing with no hope,
manifest with no believe,
neither understanding

But the question still stand,
are we really going to be okay?

I hate to break it to you,
Believe me,
It's not my intention,

Don't be frightened of the journey,
Trust me, it's going to get better,
Yet it's never going to heal

Memories you'll get to hold forever,
that's a promise,
So is the excruciating pain with no promise of letting you go,
which will reside within you until the end date.

I'm still feeling blue
When I reminisce your smile,
so bright as though the ray of sunlight
yet mine turns cold and lovely
as frost on a windowpane.

I get blue,
When I reminisce your lineaments,
so innocent, the angel you were
And I close my eyes, nearer you are
yet you are so far away.

When I grasped a pen and a paper,
The transmission began,
Of which no soul could fathom.

Lately I realized, that is my hiding place.

I do not desire to dine outside my dreams,
As they have became my daily bread,

I get to touch you,
And I get to hug you one more time,

For in there you are forever presence.

It is another day,
still learning to catch a breath,
yet I feel out of oxygen

I stopped counting the hours,
days, even the months
What's the point?

As time keep dashing,
like a midnight train,
yet the sky still pours,
Whenever and wherever.

In my closet
I allow the sky to pour,
And take away the rainbow

I allow doubt to feed my mind,
And convince me otherwise

The smile moves away in seconds
At last no one judges me!
I get to feel however and whatever.

Dashes as same as the midnight bird!
It doesn't stay long,
Yet keeps you awake
But it come and goes,
And leave you running after it,
Because we can never be on time.

Stuffed through each pocket,
And secreted miles away
Yet she opened her eyes,
And found everything unpacked

Dearest Bubblegum,
I chewed you while sweet,
Till tasteless and of no use,
Spit you out as far away as possible

Then life returned the favor,
Of treating me kind until comfortable,
Yet threw me into the Lion's den...
How bittersweet!

I would despise the rainbow,
Whenever it stopped raining
As It felt like I was beginning to miss you less,
For everytime I felt the raindrop,
I knew you were closer

Of the way you left my heart in pieces
But today I woke up missing you
As if you never broke my heart

From the warmth of his hands,
Ignite the light within her eyes,
And yet recount unutterable feeling,
Hidden deep within her heart.

Here, there, gone,
As if there was no existence,

Just a second ago, maybe a minute
Around there, I don't know,
You were here, right here

With just a blink,
Vanished! Gone!
Out of my sight like a speed of lightning,

To a total blackout,
And your face hidden behind the veil,
Forever and Ever.

Today, just today
It feels blazing
More dazzling
Clouds so crystal
And yellow in colour

Waves so still
Streams evaporating
Just flows of recollections,
beautiful reminiscences
Of forever and a lifetime
