The Woods

No water was left to bring life to this place
I found myself drifting, lost again in space
So I floated, left my past without a trace…

I walked in the woods, following a path
To a river full of fury and wrath
But I was shocked to see, I couldn’t believe
The river had drained, no fish could ever live

But I continued the journey, wandering
Searching for a paradise while humming
A sad melody with no tune, no hue
Then I was lost in the woods without a clue

So I walked back to the path of the river
Tracking my steps before headed to nowhere
But it seemed I was just going deeper
Into the woods where I was lost forever

My Diversion

It was sucking the joy out of me
I struggled to keep my sanity
Then you came and brought a new meaning
Now I look forward to each morning

It’s amazing how you made me see
A world beyond each day’s cruelty
A diversion that I badly need
To survive this life that I lead

Yes, it still sucks the joy out of me
But as long as you’re here, I’m with glee
With you, I’m ready to brave this fight
Together, we’ll overcome this plight

Winter 2018

a

Writer’s Note: So this was last week but the cold continues… It just never stops!

Braving yet another cold day
How can this shiver go away
I wish I could be at home, stay
Hibernate ’til spring makes its way

I’ll never get used to this weather
Leave me alone with my comforter
Cold, get lost! Give me some breather
Spring, rescue me from this winter

This has been brutal, it’s endless
The ice and the chill are limitless
It’s tiring, it’s giving me stress
Sun, show your warmth, stop this madness

Lost

It’s a world that I thought is better
Hoping it’s where I’ll discover
Myself, my dream, and my mission
Yet somehow I lose my passion

Then to darkness I surrender
Now I have a lot to ponder

Since I… I’m lost in this journey
I’m confused, I’m losing my will
And I… I am going crazy
Please show me the way to what’s real

It is the path of destruction
And all I have are vague questions
This madness, how long can I bear?
Only you can save me from despair

Then to nothingness I concede
I know I can never be freed

Since I… I’m lost in this journey
I’m confused, I’m losing my will
And I… I am going crazy
Please show me the way to what’s real

Oh I… I’m lost in this journey
Please lead me to something that’s real…

Writing Struggle

a combination of two photos obtained from: glogster.com and fountainpennetwork.com

I haven’t been writing lately
I can’t find the words, honestly
My mind is lost, seems uninspired
Creativity doesn’t transpire

So where do I start, be on track?
No, I cannot rely on luck
I tell myself words will soon come
But all I am is just a scum

I want to write again, seriously
I need my rhythm back, badly
Mind, please return from the abyss
Madness is here, help me end this

My Agony

I live in struggle with my agony
My mind is screaming, asking for relief
Let me free, save me from my misery
Take me to a place where there is no grief

When I found hope to end my frustration
It was taken and I was left alone
With my own thoughts leading to destruction
Now I’m more trapped in this sickening zone

Now I’m defeated by my agony
I gave up, I surrendered to my mess
My mind fought but it’s my reality
To rock bottom – it’s where I will regress

Camouflage of Darkness

From dawn to dusk, anytime of the day
North, east, west or south, no matter where you stay
I’ll come and haunt you then take you away
And all you can do is to call your God, pray!

I’m invincible, all power is mine
I’ll bring you to a place where souls are entwined
I’ll leave you restless, breathless, but you’ll be fine
As you’ll be awakened then see the sign

I’m a shadow, the camouflage of darkness
Attacking when you have no awareness
In truth, I am a mask of holiness
The one who’ll lead you to eternal gladness
