I am fading away

December 14, 2009

So I returned to the radiance

that brought my life hope

and a new way to see

and a new way to cope

*

With wide-opened wings

for my greedy heart

Alight like a star

while I fell apart

*

I am fading away

I see you no more

December 14, 2009

You dropped a kiss

like fall’s crimson leaf

cold and sore

to land upon my cheek

*

Before the dark hall

where scion love silhouettes

with my heart in the sky

I burst into pirouette

*

I see you no more

Alone on the sidewalk

December 14, 2009

Like a night with no moon

asleep without dreams

a doom-born maiden

came to undertake me

*

A ruptured recollection

but love like a rapture

I never said a word

left only numb thereafter

*
Left alone on the sidewalk

When we’re together

December 12, 2009

When we’re together

The moon and the stars

Will be jealous

Because they are so far apart

From each other

And so far away

From you

Noise

December 3, 2009

You all know;

it’s no use to deny.

It’s what I do,

I can’t say why

when or how

I lost my mind.

Do me a favor,

would you be so kind?

Forget the lifetime

I was blind

and made my limbs

a perfect sine

to try and distract

so you wouldn’t find

the shallow sea

where I tried to dive,

but not to play

and not to hide

but to drown out

the noise inside.

Primrose

September 10, 2009

What’s the point of living

if love’s unrequited?

What’s the point of loving

when happiness is sighted?

But it cannot be touched

and there’s no way to fight it

And no way to hide it, either

and everyone knows.

Is there nothing to do

but live life in repose?

And let life become grey

like a wilting primrose?

*

I might as well be gone, I suppose.

White butterfly

August 23, 2009

That which I consider precious

Does not belong to me

A thing impossible to capture

Too easy to set free

*

That which I consider precious

And I hadn’t a clue

Somehow was hiding all along

all along

in you
