Introverted State

 

By default I am, an introvert, a dreamer, a wanderer.
But this doesn’t mean that I don’t yearn to feel.
I can dream of romantic tales, yet I long to feel them
too.
I can wander in the depths of my mind,
yet I want to get lost in this world too.
But the world is full of noise I long to be shut from,
and escape to the quiet solitude of my mind.
You can prod me to mingle but I will just find
an excuse to find a quiet corner in the room
with my drink on hand hardly breathing the air that is
stifling.
You can come to me one at a time and you’ll find,
that I can be lively too especially when we’re on the
same wavelength.
I am pathetic in a crowd so i am not pleased to be in it,
I’d rather walk outdoors and claim its silence for my
own.
But if you are willing to discover the whole me,
the real me hidden in the depths of the surface,
you will learn that I have much to offer and that,
despite locking myself into this introverted state,
I will care for you and love you to pieces.

Untitled III

chain these hands lest they strangle the life out of me,
my soul is weighed down with a heavy heart i cannot see.
the things i think are none too pleasant,
for darkness is within me.
it’s grip is tight i cannot break free
for the bleeding will start
and it will be the end of me.

Ramblings

Escape
from this wretched box
is all I seek.
There is no light
inside.
Bound by nothingness,
chained by madness,
desperate for life
yet locked up tight.
Break me free,
save me from me.

I am lost.
This is who I am
a walking talking shell.
Drifting aimlessly
without thought
not even feelings.

Silent Days

 

Ripples form on the surface of the water,
with every tear drop that fell from her eyes,
a taste of bitterness fresh in her tongue,
a loveless feeling to start the day.

Woke up to a blank screen,
feeling empty just went back to sleep,
nothing changed when she opened her eyes,
still a blank screen to keep her company.

Hours may not have meaning for you,
nor days perhaps,
but for her she waits with patience,
until you give her tidings of you.

She may wipe the tears and smile at the world,
but in her heart she fears you’ve forgotten her.
In the midst of all the chaos that you’re in,
you might never see the road leading to her.

She waits, ever so patiently for a sign of you,
a feeling that you’re still thinking of her,
yet silent lines and empty spaces,
are all that’s left of you.

Untitled II

Sitting underneath the star-studded skies,
I whisper a prayer to the heavens above.
That I find the freedom to love you completely,
with nothing to bar my heart nor break my hold.
For this love I feel, you nursed to life,
yet now I question its validity.
Am I free to love you dear,
or will I crash and fall to an endless abyss?
Filled with questions and confusion,
bitterness and endless tears?
My heart has opened up to you,
and I hope your heart has too.
I may not have all the skills of a lover,
yet when I say “I love you” I mean it
for it’s the truth.
Even now when silence reigns,
I think of you night and day.
You might fall back in love but not with me,
I’ll just cherish our memories,
no matter how fleeting they may be.

Love No More

No wonder they say love hurts.
Its very bite goes through and through.
It cuts deep within and leaves a hole,
an emptiness that cannot be filled.
The bleeding may stop but that void will remain,
a stark reminder of all that’s been given,
in return for a love that she hopes won’t be forsaken.
Yet pain has prevailed and in her heart of hearts she
knows,
she cannot go back to what was before,
because her broken heart can’t love no more.

Bitter Taste

Helpless and hopeless this love is,
it started right but ended so wrongly.
Fate, how twisted can you be?
You’ve given me a taste of honey
yet its sweetness you stole from me.
This bitter taste now clings to me
try as I might I cannot fling it
away from me.
