In Silence

It’s here,
and then it’s not.
That untimely moment that we fear
our minds have just ‘forgot’

who we are,
and why we’re here.
Why did we never reach that bar?
We’re no longer our own puppateer.

In the past we’ve held on tight,
to thoughts that we would rule these nights.
Now it seems so far away,
those dreams are from a distant day.

Did our potential slip away?
We feel like sand through open fingers.
You were the protege,
and now this feeling lingers.

Have we done enough?
A definition of underachiever,
giving up was never tough.
Now who’ll be our believer?

We shake this flickering realisation,
go back to here and now.
Careful not to leave the outside in stagnation,
we carry on, ‘anyhow..’

To them we’ve just lost track,
recalibrated our conversation.
We know these moments are our plaque,
decaying every meditation.

As I Sit In Silence

As I sit, in silence, With just my soul, I can see the present, More so, than ever before I feel as if I was just born, Unto the mother’s breast All fresh and new, Wrapped in pink, The unconscious

Wordless Silence

Wordless Silence short poem

Yes, your name was sliced off from the impasse. I will stand with you to track the continental drift. How little I knew about you and the prosthetic words. Again and again I return to ruins, and the dust and

Suffer In Silence

Suffer In Silence long poem

Many today are lost in a maze Getting caught in a purple haze Wake up late to one of those days Inside we hide behind four walls that bind Yet we are still being crafted in an elegant design Cold
