To sleep in peace is all I desire

To sleep in peace is all I desire english poems

The music doesn’t seem right anymore,
the songs seem all the same,
breaths that I take
feel like herculean tasks.
To keep my eyes open
and to think,
makes me wish
I could be a vegetable,
feels I am in a coma,
feels everything is a dream,
a nightmare,
that I am unable to wake up from.

I get chased down by demons,
I get raped by emotions,
I get defiled by feelings,
I get debauched by guilt,
I get castrated by desire,
I see gloom all around,
I feel myself breaking
into a million pieces,
with each piece
questioning its authenticity,
I feel I am in coma.

To sleep in peace is all I desire
To sleep in peace is all I desire

Peace short poem

Peace-inner condition of mind- a quiet flowing river of invisible waves, sea wave of righteousness, money can’t buy. Peace-tranquility upon soul- calmness upon mind and body; those-you love-their home you make a resting place, your haters-upon them are disquiet and

All I Unread

All I Unread short poem

I unwrite a song for she, a gratis homage. Questioning imperils the sky, clouds would not weep. A cover-up comes to quote scriptures the meaning of deployment. Was I feeling smug after counting the pages of unread death? ———————————————– I

Age And Desire

Age And Desire short poem

Our age is a deciduous tree, sheds yellow desires every year makes room for new ones in the spring of opportunity. Some desires resemble oak leaves, cramped and brown- still cling in mothers’ bosoms like our plans, albums, possessions. Alas,

All The Griefs

All The Griefs short poem

The mysterious rival: suffering of resignation. I am reading myself for the surrealism of life, juxtaposition of love and hate. Another blast went off. White rose and black rose in the same garland; ruins of truth were older than lies.

To Sleep And Never Wake Again

You speak of my frustrations in memories aloft High as I was in the sky, so as low will be my drop In most of days I long for you, and in most I feel the weight of the pain
