"....have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”
― Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

I lock myself in
I lock myself out
Try not to weather in
Every whim that fancies a doubt

I push myself here
I push myself there
Want to push away that thought
That follows me everywhere

Why live like this?
When you know you can change
Why drive life amiss?
When you can stop and re-arrange

Why turn away?
When you can turn around
Why miss a day?
When you can go forth and re-bound

Why shut yourself?
When you know you can resist
Why shun everything else?
When you believe, you can persist

Why me?

If death came knocking on my door
I’d gladly open it and let it in…
It couldn't scare me, not anymore

If pain came along and asked me if I wanted more
I’d have to humbly decline…
For my basket was already full and overflowing

Why do you come?
Where do you go?
A little bit I care for some
A bit more as you grow

A touch of love
As white as a dove
A hint of pain
That sometimes drives me insane

Wishing I...

Wishing I was new
Wishing I was different
Wishing I was free..

There are but a few
Moments left to lament
Every second up that tree

Lost key....

Rummaging my attic
I found a lost key
That had just lain there static
Through all the years I was born to see

It looked ancient
And yet in the light shone
A brooding darkness that was patient
Through every tragedy it had borne

Beyond my horizon....

In the beauty
Of a full moon night
I look for you
From behind the branches
That reach so far away
While sending back shivers
Through the leaves
That rustle whispers
In my ears
Of your voice…
I can almost feel
The pinching wind
Breezing through my hair
Leaving a whiff of your scent
That I breathe in…
…In want of more

Not then
I did not
Not now
I know not
Now on
I get it
From back then
Bit by bit
It’s all clear
Through thick and thin
No fear
Burning bright within
It hurt
Quite a lot
Turned dirt
As I fought
Tried not

Moving on...

Far  forever  to trot
With  faith in a knot
In silence I sought
The one thing…
I paid more than I bought

For in that pact
I wrote to hold intact
I unearthed a fact
I had to react

Endless nights...

Endless nights
Flickering lights
Craving delights
Silent fights

Hushed silences
Fateful reminisces
Towering fences
Open lenses

Let it happen...

A time undone
Let love define
A path beckons
To life refine

Soak in illusion
As silkworms weave
An unparalleled fusion 
From a changing sieve

Like this I will always follow my dream...

Like this I will always be strong to tackle anything that comes my way...

Like this no matter how great the temporary obstacle in my way, I will move on stronger and with the willpower that I can achieve what I set out to...

Like this I will always believe in all that is good and positive and pray that it will come my way...

Like this I will do more than speak, learn and observe more than crib...

Like this I will walk with my head held high and take every step with pride...

Finding my way...

I hear a voice inside
It persuades me to abide
By every will untold
To change into a pot of gold

I head towards a pretty road
That unscathed welcomes me aboard
It shows me the path ahead
That I could have easily missed instead

In pursuit of....

To know you can
Even before you began
To set sail o’er there
Without a doubt you did dare

Sitting in the harsh summer’s sun
All this would have been fun
If a smooth path you had chosen
Before the past within you had frozen

When life stands still
Words from your mouth bound to spill
Listen to your soul
Deep within
Your body that it fills

When all seems quiet
Not a soul in sight
Listen to the ocean 
Hidden wisdom
From a shell you’ll hear if you might

I'm alive

In every breadth of air
That you could less not care
I’m alive

In every break of the game
That comes back never the same
I’m alive

In every grain of dust
That you hold onto, if you must
I’m alive

True Love

To fall in love
Is not to waste
To rise above
May bitter taste

What you seek
In a cloudy haze
Makes you freak
Lost in a maze

Why does it hurt so much when the words come from you?
Why does it matter so much?
When words spoken were far but few
For simply for you it never mattered as such

Almost two years and still counting
Only I know what I’ve given up
Been long gone now but my heart continues thumping
After every sore tear filled hiccup

Death of a heartbeat

T’was mid summer’s noon
I lay thoughtless
Mind wandering into the depths
Of an empty lagoon
There I lay thinking
How deep have I sank?
Why does it hurt so deep even now?
Tears tear you to pieces somehow 
Or is this the price of being so frank?
