the river refused to meet
the incoming ocean
creating a separation
fishes never tasted salt
drought haunted the valley
dreams to recuperate
fix the ones who are broken
adieu faultless sins
crimson as it appeared
another bottle of rum thrown
against the purest of waters
blending an elixir
letting go of fear
mirrors and reflections
recognize me
do you know who i am
the one you had given-
a light beautiful in darkness
fading flames brought winter
to a soul in despair
the click from a gun
turned the noise into silence
blood poisoned the innocence
rain poured, thunder roared
the moon cannot resign
as a witness to such
idiopathic ending
the mighty ocean stormed
as the wind carried him with ease
diluting the tears of the lifeless
the waves took away
cleansing the tainted river
claiming what was
once forbidden
is now meaningless
grab hold unto me
the breeze had whispered
i’ll carry your burden
drown the impeccable crimes
of a bird who cannot fly..

you scare me

you scare me
you’re everything that i oppose
all the things i fail to understand
yet claim to know
we’re on the different ends of a pole
i am passion
you stand with balance
i am madness
you are peace
i am a bunch of mess in pieces
while, you’re so damn organized
i am freedom
you are plagued with responsibility
you love the world
every bit of it
every living creature
odd and beautiful
connection is your plea
solitude, i am comfortable with
you are everything authentic
which makes you
all there is exquisite
as i am, mere copies
of things i believe in
you and i are a bad mix
i am the bad news
tattered in every paper
you are the single good
rare, more than a diamond
you are an emerald
so darling, yes you scare me
gentle as you are
caring, loving
never perfect
you don’t care to be
honey, you are your own
the ground you’re standing on
you built it
sexy, independent
it’s annoying
how unintentionally
you make me want for more..

a fool’s paradise

for the first time i heard
the dried leaves of nicotine burning
on my grave
the angels sing of mercy
as the priest loathe my sins
sweet sweet guitar strings
filled the air with harmony
i can’t help but admire
my weeping friends standing
claiming my wildest dreams
sharing my stories
ex lovers exchanging glances
their tears stopped falling
i am a fool in peaceful remedy
a life of comedy
dramas and sympathies
hell, i lived almost every moment
i took every second within reach
consequences i had
the pleasure of creating
from the mistakes i committed
is a laughter well hidden
i am the unforgiven
for the thousand lies i weaved
fabricated an intricate descent
to this garden of blooming roses
the crying ladies they paid had left
i guess i haven’t saved that much
because tomorrow
is my yesterday’s plea
an illusion that repeats itself to reality
no regrets, but babe I haven’t tasted
your lips that i craved
i hope it’d be okay if one day I’ll be
the cold wind next to you
cooling you down
on a hot and sunny day
the icy water you have yearned
to wash away your thirst
swirling in your parched mouth
refreshing your body
then, you’ll remember
how much i wanted to tell you
showed you, oftentimes
and you’ll realize
how fucking obvious it is
but, it’s over
the trees on the valley swayed
whistling, caressing the bells
of tiny chapels and mourners
my fate is sealed
it’s a done deal
i’m leaving
back to a place of so much bliss
where love is intense
and happiness is more than
a fool’s undeciphered description
my life is of no epic proportions
mountains i wasn’t able to move
candles i couldn’t put out the flame
melting, trimming
to my last thoughts of you
last breath, your image disappears
thank you
for making this life
a fool’s livable paradise..
