Broken

I’d just begun…why then do I see the shadows of the end
looming venomously, viciously
I seek refuge in the soulful notes of the piano; for
its lonely chords resonate with my thoughts
forcing the torrent of sadness to flow mercilessly…
Yet, the heaviness lingers, pulling me down,
stealing e’en the wish to look up or to struggle
or the will to be free…just free…
I let others shatter me to pieces
now I reign as a ghost within shattered pieces,
each piece home to infinite memories,
each memory home to infinite moments stabbing
cruelly into all realms of my existence.
And I wonder, why did I begin?
I cannot pretend not to hear the
cliched echoes of a million whispers scream at me,
soothing me in their classy way,
with the strength born of infinite pain…
And I, the silence in the broken pieces, seeking peace…infinite peace…

Thank You 😊😊

A Fine Warrior

And I met this woman, a warrior screaming in silence
struggling to slay her never-fading demons
knowing she will never be called brave
for she fights for causes so alien and unknown;
not just to the world, but to her too…
Yet her fight is real, complex too…
The fight to pry her eyes open, and wake up…
To breathe in the day, to not give in to her tears
and fears that weigh her down
To face a world that calls her an arrogant fool
as she whimpers in fear within…
To be strong as helpers fail;
strong enough not to snuff out her hope to be hopeful
To accept the fleeting moment of peace
as her eyes take in the new moment of the present
that brings a true smile to her tired face…
I understand her as I return her smile
in the watery reflection, and remind her,
“Hold on brave one; you’ll be just fine!!!”

Thank you for reading 😊😊

Just & True

Eugi’s Prompt – Sustain

A canopy of skies and hidden galaxies,
magically robed in an ethereal glow,
glittering over silent sands and seas of all hues,
shining above us- the scattered kinds,
seeking prayers…
sustaining dreams…
granting answers…
And how I wish it all to be just and true…!!!

Thank You ☺☺

A Sort Of Oasis

Parched thoughts rained hopelessly
onto her diary pages…
racing madly to keep its pace
with the rich oasis of liveliness
that once enriched these pages…
“Madness”, I often thought;
yet, her tear-stained words make me wonder
“Isn’t this her hope?”

A Girl Remembers…

What Do You See?

A knight, a ray of hope, or a better world?
What are you gazing at, girl?

Pools of despair tainted with false hopes
scream through your woeful eyes…
You limit your existence as a canvas for the world to hurl its scars and scorns…

What are you still waiting for, girl?
Or have you forgotten again?

It was never the knight or the world
that held the shimmer of your eyes
It was you, dear girl…it was always you
You, the one who made it all better.

Now, wipe off that sorrow and let in that
lovely smile and faith to shine through
your scars and tears.
Let the world be dazzled
by your indomitable brilliance once again…!!!

 

Thank You😊😊
