Hello Silence

Hello silence, ye olde friend
Once acquainted, we meet again
We do not see one another often
Not since I left you alone in that coffin
Where have you been, you strange mystery
You glance, then evade our torn reality
As if you are nothing but a dream
A flicker in time, an untold memory

Hello silence, a strange companion
The one who soundlessly, readily creeps in
One who dwells in questionable existence
As if your form is nothing but pretense
You take over while many are sleeping
You echo in the hollows of the disbelieving
I found you once and tried retrieving
But it ended with a mortal “me” retreating

Hello silence, once again
The final greeting before your descent
As suddenly as life begins
Your demise — silence…ends.

Let Yourself Let Go

In any other world
You could tell the difference
And let it all unfurl
Into broken remnants

Smile like you mean it
And let yourself let go

Say goodbye to the world you thought you lived in

Nothing Like You

One day, our paths will cross again
One day, our worlds will merge
Day after day
Readying the way
Until the stars emerge

From behind the clouds
That sheltered you in the crowd
You hid from the spotlight —
sunlight and moonlight

But our journey is the same
Our destination is nigh
I took a train
And you, the night flight

We took a different route
Leading to the same airport
A transition point is where we met
Yet “Hello” and “goodbye” was all you sought

I remember you, my love
But the memories weren’t enough
I had to pave a way to ready
Myself for thee

So one day, my dearest,
We shall meet again
In the forest or a desert
City streets or beach
Mountain peaks, ocean deeps
Rooftops atop old bookshops

One day, you and I will meet again
But maybe not today.

 

And when we meet again my dear
She will be nothing like you…

 

I fear.
