63. Screaming

There are screams travelling across rooftops tonight,
Making their way to my ears and yours.
Screams emanating from a fire that burns within a soul so wounded and torn.
Do I shut my eyes to the noise and pretend I hear nothing?
Somewhere, someone is in pain.

Another minute goes by.

I turn to look at you and I know you hear it, too.
The screams grow louder.
Why do we pause?

Are we so absent from life?

I remember that time we argued.
Our voices shrill with anger,
Our hatred boiling over.
Nobody listened
To your cries or mine.

The screams grow fainter.
Perhaps,
It was no use trying.

42. Out of love

I’m making memories without you,
Filling my mind with thoughts not stained by your presence.

I want to leave you far behind.

You’ve tried to hurt me,
Drop me,
Shake me off;
Too many times.

I now stand at my own crossroads,
I’m making my own steps in the snow.
Watch how far I can go.

8. 2004 Revisited

This madness crawls inside my head,
this ugliness leaves my words unsaid,
this emptiness makes me cling in dread
to the shadows of the living dead.
It has left me bereft
and afraid
to move,
to speak,
to stand up and be seen,
to rise above myself and walk,
to happily live my dream.

Would I be happier if words were silent?
Would I be saner if hurt had no voice?
Would the world be silent if I made no sound?
Would the world be voiceless if I made the choice to sacrifice my art,
to stop my words from spilling out of my barren soul onto this guiltless paper?

6. Arguments

Pernicious

But delicious,

You tempt me

And I forget whence I came.

Tenacious

So audacious,

You grip me

And I forget who I am.

Vexatious

And flirtatious,

You twist me

And I forget what I can.

Loquacious

Yet perspicacious,

You silence me

Again and again.

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.
