Lack of Passion

Hello everyone,

I have not written in a while. Though I always write on my Moleskin Notebook. I have not been as active here online. I have not been transferring my works to the site. I just have not been doing it for no particular reason. It might be that I need to be disciplined and take a certain time of the day to do this. I always say I will do that and then – I don’t.

It might be the lack of passion to do this here. I have always hidden my poems from anyone up until maybe a few years ago. When I opened this site. For the longest time I also did not want it connected to me in real life. I wanted it to just be a page on the web where people can read and enjoy or hate my works.

My wife is the one that got me into sharing this. I first allowed her to read my works. I have written a few poems for girlfriends before. Until one day I was told that I was too emotional for writing poems. Not a bad compliment if it wasn’t that the person meant it as one! It’s laughable now, but it wasn’t then when you are trying to show affection, love, and your emotions for someone.

Well, I just wanted to let you all know that I will be trying my very best to put my poems up on a constant basis. I would appreciate if you comment your opinion or thoughts under them…

Anyhow, I hope everyone is staying safe and is able to try to have a Happe New Year’s. It has definitely been a hard year and maybe “Happy” is a hard word to swallow.

Regards,

Coming to understand

there is no point in looking to understand the current things

those things can be anything

sometimes the means to understand them

is just the waste of a moment

the waste of your life

Over estimating a situation

for no logical purpose

Quote #4

Being guided is the way that you show trust and hope, when you can choose to not believe. Give yourself to be guided.

Tangible

A blank notebook is nothing to you 
But when filled in with your words

Does it become an extension of your mind?

Perhaps a tangible mind in the form of a limb
Which happens to be a notebook.

Everything

Adorn by beauty 
And maybe lush
A bit chaotic
Definitely,
Filled with love.

Amongst the wild acts
There’s some care
A form of caring.

At all cost
And for everything
You are their everything.

Quote #3

The mind, the most important space of your body with the smallest real estate.

Black and White

Follow me,
I may take you to my world,
Where’s there’s no colors,
Just black and white.

Waking

Waking, 
the start of the day, 
grinning with much to say, 
Waiting to break your ways, 
Slowly to take your days, 
Quickly to change your ways, 
Easily it breaks enthusiasms.
 
The start of your days, 
Are a dice in a bag, 
what number it lands, 
a toss of a salad,
You're waking to start your day,
What it holds, is what all say.

Summer Skies

Crystal clear,
With a glare that outshines, 
Seeing the blue above the ocean,
Can it also be an ocean? 

Give the feel of happiness, 
The white that floats in the sky, 
Cotton, pillows, marshmallows?

What is perceived,
When indoors all beauty can be seen,

When outdoors,
You see, 
It's no summer skies.
It quickly moves to freeze.

Roller Coaster

Like a roller coaster you go. 
Up or down in emotions.
And never steady for too long.
Like a roller coaster.
You run through your emotions to quick.
Without settling on one.
Passing by you like a blurr.

Black

Color my soul black 
To show for all the pain
Confusion, and mess

There is no colors to show
For life has stolen happiness

It’s black like a ditch
And when you reach in
There’s only decomposed matter

Do you not smell that color?
The smell of rot taking control

Only this I know
How black is my color
And makes my shadow
But also speaks volume Of my being.

Violent Departure

Thunder to my soul 
And lightning to my heart
Are the words of your goodbye
The tears from my eyes
Makes the rains from my sky
And floods
Washing away violently
The memories that within me
Once was
With violent winds
Cleaning away everything.
