Haunted

It’s haunting every piece of me
I ran looking for a sanctuary
I hid but it always finds me
No escape from this catastrophe

It wants to control my mind, my soul
I refused, neglecting the call
A phantom commanding my whole
I am cornered to take the fall

Then it devours me, draining my core
Resist or surrender – I am torn
But it persists, asking for more
Yet I feel at peace, I am reborn

Go And Explore

Go, explore your world and learn new things
Appreciate the wonder that life brings
Meet people and see your surroundings
I’ll be your wind when you spread your wings

Go, satisfy your curiosity
Look around, seek creativity
Keep your excitement, find the beauty
I’ll have your back ensuring your safety

Go, expand your imagination
Dream, know your purpose and destination
Experience success and frustration
I’ll be right here supporting your passion

Healing

I am back collecting all the pieces
Of shattered dreams and faded memories
I am trying not to mind the stitches
From the wound of my painful history

I am badly bruised but I’m not broken
I’m trying to pull through from my sorrow
My soul, my heart and my mind are hardened
Now I’m ready to face my tomorrow

And I am here to survive, I will thrive
Nothing can cage my spirit to be free
I’ll hang on as long as I am alive
Soon I’ll heal and I again will be me

Drowning

It’s seems like eternity
But at last,
I see something
It’s blurry…
Is it the shore?
Swim faster
Faster!
Go to that island!
But wait…
Where am I?

The water isn’t blue
It’s gray
There are no fish
No corals
Nothing underneath
A sink hole to nowhere
So hurry
Swim harder!
Flap those arms!
Move those feet!

The shore
It’s nearer
I see it now
I can reach it now
But what? How?
This is not a sanctuary
It’s just a huge log
But I can hold on to it
Cling on to it
At least for now

Then I look up
At the sky
It’s getting darker
This water beyond me
It’s turning black
And I’m exhausted
But I need to stay afloat
“Don’t close your eyes
Don’t give up now”
Just keep swimming!

But I’m tired and I…
I want to rest and I…
I’m shutting my eyes and I…
I’m losing my breath and I…
I don’t know where I am
How did I end up here?
Swim!
Swim more!
But slowly‎…
Oh so slowly…

I am drowning…

Only you can save me…

Give me a line and I’ll start to write
I’ll combine the words and make it right
I’ll tell a story and give my whole
Igniting the readers’ mind and soul

Give me a brush and I’ll start to paint
The colours of my life without taint
I’ll show my other side, my passion
Depicting my world, my emotion

Give me a subject and I’ll capture
Notable moments in a picture
It could be a beauty or a mess
Reflecting existence, its realness

Give me a note and I’ll start to play
A music that is not a cliche
I’ll compose a tune that will remain
Soothing hearts, taking away the pain

Away From You

It feels weird that you’re not here beside
I’m adapting but I miss you terribly
I miss your warmth, hugging me tenderly
Being away from you is killing me

As time goes by it will be easier
But I’m afraid you would not remember
The past year that we spent together
Just you and me creating forever

Please be safe and happy, that’s what I pray
Then I’ll be fine, I’ll make it through the day
If there’s a miracle to find the way
I still wish to be with you or make you stay

This Moment

This is the moment I dreaded
This is the hardest thing ever
And I ask where are we headed
Despite knowing it’s for the better

I want this day to never end
Freeze time when I’m holding you tight
Have an eternity to spend
But we must say goodbye tonight

I know we both need this to grow
If only I could stay, be with you
But it’s now time to let you go
Yet I’m just here, still loving you
