Traps and Cages

There was a man, once in the wilderness, Afraid he was, of silent traps and cages. Ordinary life, for him was a maze, For him this world, was just a performance on stage. Where the puppets we were, and our strings tied to fate. He was tired and sick, of the condition of his state….

Smile

Smile when the world is against you, Smile, because not everyone can. Smile, because there are very few, Who can understand. Smile when you’re drowning away, When you’re lost and realize that you’re frail. Smile, not because it’s a sign of hope, But the rope for the toughest, mountain slopes. Smile, not because you’re beautiful,…

The wanderer

To be able to go wherever these eyes can reach, To have an adventure and many tales to teach, That is all a wanderer would dream, Before the flame of life fades away from him. His old torn shirt brushing against the storm, Eyes filled with glimmer, adventure so strong. He never thought where to…

Stormy night

Under the rumbling of the thunder, My men are all lost in wonder, Wondering about the need to seek, To seek the purpose of trying, aren’t we all weak? Into the middle of this gloomy night, Onto the sea and this storm we’re inside, It’s hard for all who’s ready to fight, To not get…

Widow in the apartment

In a room with no windows There lived a woman, a lonely widow. Sometimes very suspicious she behaved, She seems to be living there by herself. Never did I see her coming outside, Except for a few times during the night, It seemed there was something she was trying to hide, I know this because…

NO Title – poem

I don’t even know, What I’m feeling right now. I can’t even tell, Why I’ve been so blank. I wake up every day, Stare at the empty wall till it ends. I wait I wait till it’s time to sleep again. I don’t want to sleep, Nor do I want to wake up. I have…

What do you do when..

What do you do, when nobody looks? When you’re all by yourself inside your room. Do you get concerned about your appearance? Of how you look. Like some grand performance. Why do you act like somebody else, like the big stars before their audience? Why you act like someone else when you can be yourself….

Darkness & light

Darkness is so comforting, No one can see you, Darkness is soothing, It is not easy to figure it out. Darkness embraces your soul, It doesn’t let you stay alone, Darkness is quiet, it is serene. It hides you from your insecurities. But the best part about darkness is, Like everything else, it’s not forever….

Realization – visual poetry

One time it’s sunshine, the other it’s rain, Sometimes we heal, and experience pain again. Sometimes you let loose, And forget about the rules. Live like you’ll die in a minute, Appreciate the gifts of life like you mean it. Don’t waste your time doing what others want you to do, Instead, do what you…

Harmony of chaos

Tell me oh voice of the deaf The mirror to my closed heart, Losing myself in you I’ve left The chaotic world wanna restart. Somewhere deep within myself I miss the troubling chaos around, Fed up of being around yourself I crave, even for the tiniest of sound. I was a fool to have wished…
