If I could just describe the pain,
The pain, of losing you!
The pain, of missing those
Passionate kisses, stolen at moments.
The pain, of looking down onto my chest
And not finding your head resting on it.
The pain, of not meeting your eyes
In the darkness where I lie alone.
The pain, of not feeling your breath
Against my skin.
The pain, of knowing my incapability to know,
My incompetence to love someone
With the same dignity.
The pain, of realizing that
All those moments were just a dream.
Much lacking in density,
And that we were never meant to be
Nothing more, than strangers passing by.

Strangers In Sleep

Strangers In Sleep short poem

The dome has collapsed. You walk in fire on the eve of exhuming yourself, picking up the pieces of humming life. Eye to eye, the patience was wearing thin, fears had positioned themselves, at the doors, snarling. A mass grave

Like A Ghost Passing Through The Night

Like A Ghost Passing Through The Night long poem

Moon of gold and a storm on the horizon My cape like gossamer wings in the wind Oh starlight, star bright first star I see tonight Send me somebody to love before the reaper Comes and takes my life… Well


Strangers short poem

Would it be okay if I sat here for a while, Maybe we could contemplate together, Others may not notice but I can see your smile, Its sincerity has changed just like the weather. I know you do not know
