the silence of loneliness

Margin of Silence

the silence of the night

caused serenity’s flight

dipping  into your consciousness

you failed with your bluntness

awakening your questioning thoughts

of all that was lost while your loneliness fought

thinking of those who stepped into your life

for a brief time you had it until out came the knife

their faces pass before you, one by one

like the stars of the night, until you were shunned

glistening feelings deep within

where are they now…when did it wear thin

what are they doing…why did it end so soon

did you ask too much…did they fly to the moon

did you ask more than they could give

did you forget to forgive…allowing it to live

did you not understand…did you have to demand 

do you not have a right to be heard…your brain was banned

why did it become so absurd…did you really have to be heard

why do humans sift away…and you are left with an empty day

why does emptiness loom looking for a  home to stay

why can’t we be more open and receive

why do we run and deceive

why do we burn what we are given

do you enjoy the feeling of being beaten


my apology

there is no emptiness like that void of one’s friends

there is no peace, no justified end

when all words and thoughts stop

where i began and you left off

what an idiot i was

emotions took over just because

i had to find a reason

for what seemed to be like treason

the worst i could be

crazy fool, with no thought of thee

though the flowers should bring me delight

i feel nothing but sorrow for the fight

clouds cover my sight

you have left and i am without night

there is no sleep

for your friendship i did not keep

now there is no one left here

but hollowness and  tears

Demise of Love


drop petal-like

in the Spring retreat

easy smiles

drift into waves

of nothingness

delightful blossoms

fragrant perfume

now nothing fills

the empty room
