Ponderings and Preludes VI

Here I lie forever, sorrow still remains
Will the water pull me down and wash it all away?
Come and take me over, welcome to the game
Will the current drag me down and carry me away?
Suddenly the light begins to fade…

ON FRAGILITY

I was severely fragile

And I let you drop me

Maybe if I was more agile

I won’t be broken, maybe.

~*~

ON TROUBLE

The water is scalding hot

Their tempers are boiling

Hate spilling over the pot

It’s time for me to jump in.

~*~

ON RADIANCE

Your sunshine is quite radiating

Smile lambent, aureole, sincere

But your heat got overwhelming

And tore holes in my atmosphere.

~*~

ON INSANITY

Delusional, schizo, a crazy mess

Insults as I indulge in my fantasy

If I can swim through happiness

Why drown myself in cold reality?

~*~

ON PRIDE

I wouldn’t swallow my own pride

For once, I said I’d rather be dead

Thus I stood my ground foolishly

And ended up choking on it instead.

Ponderings and Preludes III

~*~

ON INFATUATION

My cheeks are pink-flushed

Madly you make me blush

My pulse races horribly fast

But you make my heart stop.

~*~

ON BRAVERY

Dragons and cackling witches

In a magical playing field

The poor damsel in the story

But the golden sword she wields.

~*~

ON LIFE AND DEATH

Living might be my wed wife

But Death, she’s my mistress

For when I finally tire of Life

Death’ll relieve me of all its stress.

~*~

ON BEING SPOILED

You used to be like cold milk

Simply sweet and pure white silk

But they left you out too long then

And now you’re spoiled rotten.

~*~

ON BUBBLES

I glimmer with sheer iridescence

Floating softly without defence

But alas, this quaint beauty is fragile

Once I pop, gone forever is my smile.

Ponderings and Preludes II

I’m a fly that’s trapped in a web
But I’m thinking that my spider’s dead
Lonely, lonely little life, I could kid myself
In thinking that I’m fine…

~*~

ON RADIANCE

The desolate one

The quiet blue star

Other people are suns

But my shine never reaches far.

~*~

ON MEDICATION

Take me to the pharmacy

So I could buy some energy

Take me to the pharmacy

So I could lose my memory.

~*~

ON MAKING MEMORIES

Polaroids of funny faces

Very different life races

Albums of memories, clear, happy

Shame I’m not in any.

~*~

ON SECRETS

Withheld information

Rumour sensation

Truth be told, never

There wasn’t a single correct answer.

~*~

ON MOVING ON

Hurt yourself by tripping amok

But never on the same rock

Cry until your heart gets better

But don’t keep on sobbing forever.

~*~
