12. Unseeing the seen

I cannot unsee your pain
now that your tears have fallen,
I cannot unread your words
now that your voice has spoken,
I cannot undo my mistake
now that your existence is orphaned,
I cannot unknow this truth
now that my eyes are open.

11. Landmine

Unbeknownst to me,
Your blood was spilt.
Unbeknownst to me,
Your joy was killed.
Unbeknownst to me,
Your hopes died unfulfilled.
Unbeknownst to me,
Your cries stayed silent until
Unveiled to me,
My head hangs down in shame.
Unveiled to me,
I try to hide my name.
Unveiled to me,
I realize I deserve the blame.
Unveiled to me,
The truth then became
Impermissible, you see,
My trust is badly broken.
Impermissible, you see,
My belief was mistaken.
Impermissible, you see,
My innocence is forsaken.
Impermissible to me,
My conscience is now awakened.

5. Release

And you thought all I had to do was just believe.

I didn’t think it really matters now.
The silence has stretched too far
and the road is too narrow
for you to walk beside me.

Whatever I thought,
Whatever I wished for,
Whatever I believed –
it was all for nothing.

Solitude is my sole companion.

The compassion of a thousand lives
spoke not a word to me;
The love of a thousand more
left me sore.

I thought it would be different this time,
but
the shadow of a thousand souls left me staring into my own abyss.

3. Unanswered

Listen to my heart,

I speak to no one.

No one listens and the wounds run too deep.

You thought all I had to do was to believe.

It wasn’t enough, my love.

Disappointment has been friend.

Sorrow, my bedfellow.

My aching heart has surrendered after an eternity.

You never came back.

My soul’s only wish has died unanswered.

2. Honey

I am drawn to you,
You are nectar for my soul.
I long for you,
I want to hold you close.
I desire you,
You are sunlight to my darkness,
And if you allowed me to,
I would never let you go.

1. Tonight

As my eyes close

my mind drifts

to a place and time

when we were one.

our hearts beat together,

our souls merged

and our voices spoke as one.

How could I not have loved you?
