The day after the apocalypse:

After the dust had settled,

After the birds begin chirping,

After the clocks strikes midnight,

After I start breathing.

The day it all ends,

Is the day we surface shore,

This day seems close,

Closer than before.

When kid's laughter echo,

When car's engine starts,

When the day seems brighter,

And the night not so dark.

The day it all begins,

Is the day reality prevails,

No one knows what will happen,

Or what this day entails.

Resolute

To who then do I owe this pleasure,
or this curse, to love a second
long after the first.  I must say
I have toed the line day after day

with no regard to a past ill spent,
but the past is present—I repent.
Now what then do I seek salvation from?
No god or man has talent enough
to make my deeds undone.

Nor even in a dying breath a lament
shouted towards the sun
would do sufficient harm or good

to make my deeds undone.
So I ask once more: why tread this path?
There is no reason for my treason
though to warily await each passing season.

All around I see,
Groups laughing and merry.
Of course, I keep distant.
The desire to connect
Has dulled and culled
For the desire of self.
The desire to connect
Proved airy and contrary
To the actions I commit.
Rejection and distance
Shtheown me effects consistent.
The fault lies in not with individuals
But with the self and its value.
Fear of worthlessness and pity
Filled every crevice of the mind.
To work on myself and kept checked
Would be better than
Wallowing in oceans shallow.
So, to the ones long gone,
I didn't want to split
And I want to stay
But the questioning of
Value and worth lingers
Like an ugly, faceless phantom
Entombing me between his fingers.
It's a struggle to stay above
S...

Short of breath
Sort of grief
Shattered pieces of hope
Scattered strength and scope
Strangled dream of soul
Straggled in the goal
Still a smile on the face
Spill all skills for a race

An escapable entrance to an adjudicated adjustment in life, a realisation that it doesn’t have to be the end, it can be the start... determined dilemmas on detrimental determined denial is a deprecated douse of dire consequences brought around by desire.

An encounter with words left me to think and about how far one can go to prove them right or others wrong. This works well for both sides in equal proportions. Here is what I could figure out:

so much hate, so much hate over things that don't even matter..
human squabbles and fruitless fighting about who wants what and who does what and unending ignorance in the face of opposition their positions dont change and their anger never fades
I just hope and pray that we find a way to stop the violence and end the winningless feuds
because the constant repetition of competition with no goal and no prize other than their eyes on proving the others wrong
it will tear us apart
this fight is just gonn...

I am who I am
I exist in all the forms,
I could be, I could be, I should be or I would be.
Born to follow the non existential societal norms.

I am a perception in the minds
Just another organic machine for the blinds.

But I am who I am
I am a journey through life
A pagan who paid the price

I am the bridge that joins
The could be, would be, should be and would be.
I am just a tiny drop that's lost in this vast sea.

I am a slave of my master and master of my slaves.
Alas! I am nothing in the eyes of the world
But everything in my conscience that now just crawls.

Still I cling on as I am my hope, liberty and freedom.
Just trying to make a small place for myself under the common sun.

THIS WORLD

This world, as we know it today
It's slipping further into decay
Spinning the wheel of profits
Making us all feel like misfits
Thiefs are all the coins that suck our feelings
While emotions are losing their meanings
We say we are the almighty evolved
We're just behaving like hungry wolves
Kill what had been given
And take what can be taken
Religion and creed
Have cause millions to bleed
Yet we believe we're walking saints
While we destroy all that remains
We'll become the ones that we hate
Once we'll see the mess that we made
But for now, we won't stop the world from turning
And for many years the woods will keep on burning
And in this modern world we can be sure of only one sing...

The crisp air sting my cheeks as the stars dance drunkenly in the moons glow and,
I feel small.
Like a mear leaf, blown from a tree by the Autumn winds. Surely I will rot, decay like everything before me.
Yet I feel the burn in my cheeks
The blood in my veins
And the grass beneath my feet.
I am real,
I am real,
And that must count for something.

It’s a  game of chess
and I’ve been checked;
The King, due to be hanged
for his glorified impudence.
Mightier than a looming boulder
prepped to race down
the mountainside and crash
headlong into his
despondent village.
Perhaps we opt to behead,
instead cutting the
head from The Snake,
diving into despair
as the Kingdom rears
it’s ugly and duplicitous head.
The crowds wail and cheer
as the crows feast on
the disease of flesh, humanity.
The game has been won,
Checkmate; Though now
I must reset the board
and let history repeat itself.

Afraid and scared of my own thoughts and how they're slowly consuming me

They continue to feed and feed till all that is left are the bones and fears of thee

how my hand so desperately wanting to reach out but gets pulled back into despair and insanity

and how my heart aches whenever I give a smile to another but breaks immediately when they leave

how I want to help you,how I want to please you,and how I want to hold you close and tell you that everything will be alright.

but how do I do those things with the upmost sincerity when my thoughts and feelings keep deceiving me?

It's probably time for me to let go

Because I can't help you due to my own fear of hurting you,of hurting others....

Lost Love
I replaced the stars with the light in your eyes,
I held you up like Atlas held the skies,
Your fingertips left traces on my bones,
The thoughts of you are heavy little stones,
Rattling in my pocket with every step I take,
One by one i'd throw them in a lake,
But nothing, nothing drowns this ache.

Across the lands and across the seas there is a place I believe you'll hear the bells
and see the light and peace be with you in the night.
I walk the hall with bare feet
and see a woman by the creek.
skipping stones and picking weeds and together we will meet under a tree
and on a sheet a basket near and a drink.  Hold my hand and touch my toe and off to another world we shall go.

Just like the stars,
we are metaphorically
an epitome of reverse enigma;
bright, beautiful,

but too far away,
alone, and dying.

Life: an illusion?
Life as we know it is most likely an illusion.
Chinese philosopher Zhuanghzhi wondered if reality was an illusion with the "butterfly dream".
Greek philosopher Plato was famous for his Allegory of the Cave, which speaks about what our eyes see as being an illusion.
The great spiritual traditions of India commonly teach us that the world is Maya, usually translated as ‘illusion’ or ‘unreality.
The Mesoamerican Toltec strongly believed that our reality was an illusion with the concept of Mitote.
Stephen Hawking was a proponent of the idea that our universe was a hologram, and was even working the science behind it at the time of his death.

The Silent, The Blind

Watch through your social window
how civilization dies and crumbles.
Portrait in smoke and mirrors,
by these actors dressed as humble.

Follow the laws of your liars
who corrupts what you protect.
An empired build in scorching fire
that your future and salvation rejects.

Brainwashed minds speak aloud.
Ignorant ears devour the lies.
The blind empowered as a crowd
kills all hope, and fills it with flies.

Rot away with a smile as you speak
by yourself in your safe zone.
Keep confusing hope with what's bleak
and your prison will be home.

Sometimes it sucks when you don't know what you don't know and what you want out of a situation or time for that matter. Then you start scrambling for reasons and answers to the intangible and imperceptible questions who's existence can be is delusional but always spinning around your head like an electronic around the nucleus. The superposition of these questions make you believe that you and your world is nothing but Schrodinger's cat and so you start digging deep to find the answers, layers after layers. And now when you slide your thoughts at a side and think of resting for a while and look up to see some sunshine, you don't see that either. Now you're burdened by all the uncertainties an...

ABSURDITY
Oh,How Adsurd the World!
Millions spent, after their day
Millions spent on meds and bays.

Oh,How Adsurd the World!
Billions dream of billion dreams
Billion dreams, and none fulfilled.

Oh,How Adsurd the World!
Money makes some dreams come true
Money makes some dreams come too.

Oh,How Adsurd the World!
Many seek the purpose of life
Many seeks, and many dies.

Oh,How Adsurd the World!
Born of the soil, we reach for the skies
Born of the soil, we dig ourselfs in with lies.

Oh,How Adsurd the World!

The Room is dark, The Room is bright,
One Room on the left, another the right,.
I’m in between, which to choose? 
If one is win, the other lose,.
Can’t conclude,where to start,?
Blinding the light, dense is the dark,.
Neither is open to which it may hide,
But the roads leading to each has nothing to hide,
Confusing the message, knowledge is not here,
To call aloud to my wondering ear,
There it was! Something to hear, 
From the dense of the darkness,
Were crying with tears,
Shaking in fear, the ending of years,
From amongst those sighs,
The Ending is here, then it was clear,
THAT WAS THE PLACE I WAS GOING,
Almost inside, before I could die,
A sound shot forth from the light,.
Thunderous voicin...

It smells like leafs and wet pavement
yet I am lost within myself once again.

The world used to seem so simplistic to me when I was younger, before I was exposed to it's snarling teeth and needy claws.

who was i then?
surely I did not know grief, did not know love. It all seems like a dream now, a distant fairy tale if you would.

Going back is impossible but letting go would be too easy. To float away, my hair framing my face as cold water devours my naked flesh.

but I'm not ready, not yet at least.
there are far too many things to be done, too many people to please.

so for now I will wonder, lost and heavy.

everyone finds their lantern to walk this path but no lamp found i hath.
I continue to wander through the dark
waiting for energy to make an arc
don my coat and go to battle
but nobodys there, it's a single saddle
one soldier trapped as his demons crowd
his soul breaks as the voices get loud.
as he walks the path, cold and tired
from his job in life hes just been fired
as tears fall down he utters a moan
wondering why hes always alone
not a sign of courage in his tone,
a mere possession his demons own
his existence is numbers like a price tag
his energy fades, he begins to lag
given sand and told to make a house
he never expected to find a spouse
all he knew, that dingy hotel room

Autumn leaves of red and gold that crunch beneath your feet pumpkin on front pouch. Candy corn and trick or treat tart and tangy cider apples ripened on the trees and hint of winter coming on the chilling autumn breeze.

Crinkled Window;
The lone window on the wall.
Left behind, and forgotten by all.
In a room drenched in black.
The only passage is interlaced in glass.
It shines, so clearly the future shines behind its sights.
Fighting the battle to breaking through.
The pane bares a perturbed face, for it seeks war.
With waves of surge, I shaken its core, cracking it ever more.
The window diffracts, less pristine than before.
My hand encased in red, finally drives through to the end.
The window breaks, and fades to deepened shades.
With sharpened acuity, I begin to comprehend.
The melting pane was not my shinning future, but my dimming past, that's leaving at last.
Enveloped in darkness, my senses become m...

Eyes that sparkle like the starry night,
A mask of freckles au naturel.
I could write an epic about her beauty,
But that's not what I'm here to tell.

Ask me about the steadfastness of her words,
And the wilderness in her heart,
The steel in her nerves
and a demeanour which sets her apart.
She saw it not but I did.
I saw her for the work of art she is.

Ask me about the depth of her character,
And the sweetness of her voice,
The regal frivolity of her laughter,
The selflessness and the sacrifice.
She saw it not but I did.
I saw her for the work of art she is.

Stop I must before I have even begun,
You're not ready for the length this story can run.
But I am unafraid and I'll let the world kno...
