Looking Beyond the Ceiling

Bright eyes still needing answers
Chasing meaning in these walls..

Sudden soul speaks finally
This Quickening heart I almost feel

Maybe it’s time to shed some tears
Maybe the clock knows I’ll bend my skin

So fragile here

So breakable and tender
This darkness keeps me there

As the stars pours and flows the floods of
Grief

Every sorrow
Before my soul they show their faces.

Like loosely time flies by, so quickly
Age grows

It never pauses to let you feel

Never let’s me savor the moments that
Prick my heart to listen

It reminds me I can never hold time to please me

All is fleeting, and heaven only knows those moments that you bring you to your knees

Are the moments that save you everytime.

It Keeps Passing By

I thought that time could not follow..

But It chases me

In Moments that I thought I could hold onto

There they go

Slipping through crooked hands

All is not what it is supposed to be

……I’m smaller

Full of fears and years of tears

Mounds of sorrow,

Pain in eyes hopeful and pleading

As it comes to these

Longings

Missing innocence

And Strength

Missing days when I thought I could

Never reach this day

But it flows on by

Time with it’s hurried way

Making joys and shedding skins

It keeps on picking up speed, this phenomenon of time

Passing chances, passing life

Passing me by

It keeps passing me by

 

 

The Morning Fight

My soul wrestles again

The competing forces resume their stance

At war once more

And I am tired of this battle

To keep me away from grace

 

Though in agony and persistence

I muster syllables of pleas to help me

As the calling to live without you

Echoes louder day by day

 

Let me not pass you by

No Longer You

I lived 

Among rags and grey 

breaths exhaled 

proved that life was lived 

I panted with an urgency 

And failed to leave proof along some past. 

I didn’t recognize myself 

In memories of blur and jagged scenes

Every gone second an echo 

Of someone who waits to be awaken….

Sleep on forbidden dream 

Stay in a stiff death

I am no longer you
