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..

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..

a heart like yours

in the vow of secrecy
there is a technical
obvious mishap
causing a spill of honesty
weakness sinking
in grains of lose sand
drowning in the fear
of nonacceptance
forever a misfit
a square peg against
your well rounded heart
though i seek the love
i want to feel
a guarded thumping
is mostly revealed
I’ve seen who you are
introduced me to your soul
but never your heart
it could either be
time says not yet
or i’m not the one
your heart longs to beat
either way,
there is the inevitable blow
but risks are minimal
tiny test compared
if i achieved
a heart like yours
gracefully preserved
in an undying
goodness and bliss.
