Just a moment

Just wait a moment, you said

And been waiting ever since

When be that moment auspicious 

I say what’s in my heart

Those bitten by the love bug

Waiting, a punishment hard

As one mouths the words

I love you over and over

Life just stalls, moments fly

A sign, a ray of hope

Is all that matters

To live life by

 

For a moment of peace and solitude

A clear blue sky not

Set on fire by the setting sun

A life of smooth sailing not

Bestows experience to face the unknown

Nature is neither crooked not malevolent

Expectations, untempered by reason, result in heartburns

We blame fate for what others point as failures

If they would have only known

I have walked past my success and left it behind

For a moment of peace and solitude

Veil

Have you ever tried to lift the veil
Beneath the laughter there is aching pain
A true friend is one who sees through
I know you have pain of your own
That you never shared
I scratch the mask you wear
But I tread gingerly
Lest won’t be able to bear the pain
The scars that you carry
Lie safely hidden
My heart aches
As we tango
Circling
Life goes on
Abnormally normal
Entwined
Lovers
Lost in our
Own lies

 

Fiction

Writing fiction about life

Truth gets lost between the line

Readers unable to decipher meaning

Unaware of the hidden lies

Autobiographies a fiction

Where horrendous truths

Lost in the jungle of

Carefully crafted words

Silently weep

And readers left to shower

Unworthy praise

Fictionalized life tells a story

Fiction it is

Glossy papers

Not the gospel truth

Seeking Redemption

Denying culpability for our own demise,
We commit harakiri a thousand times.
Writing our self obituaries, we
Hitch our sails to winds of wants.
Surrendering the wheels of our lives
To captains unknown,
Children of destiny
We squander our own rights.
Mastering the art of self victimization,
We mortgage our souls.
Seeking meaning without comprehension
We rue our fate and
Play the blame game.
Prisoners of our own deceit,
When all hopes are lost
We seek redemption
From an unknown god.
