I thought I’d survive without you But I couldn’t say goodbye For the words lay tangled At your doorstep Afraid to cross the threshold Into a life where you Would not be waiting At sundown, by the yellow lamp A book in hand, the kettle whistling Eager to tell and know Of just another mundane day
Don’t be a stranger To the voices within For they hold reflections Of your deepest sins. Hear them out When they proclaim The path to be free Of the guilt and pain, To claim absolution In knowing the truth That you are only human When you slip and fail!
Fire and flow of buried emotions I had commanded to lie still Gulping down anger Silencing the rage I waited for time to heal; They gurgled wildly In gorges of the heart Streamed in deadly cascade Burning lava from hell Surged from the gallows Spilled as luminous pain All the venom I had held!
Pursuing us Watching over all The silent hum From a digital world Surveillance drones Chasing us, even in The sleeping hours; For how they evolve To read our dreams Fathom what our Greatest fears are! Thus, we lay bare Before artificial gods!
I walked the obscure path Traversed distances, alone I doubted myself, lonely Craving for company; At the end of the rainbow I searched high and low Magical messages to know “It is okay to be on your own To make choices, unknown For in silence, grows The strength of souls!”
