Lucifer

Lucifer, the god of light,
Or the prince of dark night.
Reveal me true nature of your kind,
The secret among all these shadows you hide.
Long lost from the memories of most,
Old world is gone, woodlands are gone,
None left from the spirits that rest in the trees.
And nothing can be done to make it undone.
Even birds sing different songs now,
From the long lost past,
Only circle of day and night
Remains unchanged

  

Dancing in the Moonlight

Dancing in the full moonlight
Like non among the mankind
Full with lust and emotions
Ready to burst into
A flame of endless passions
Brighter than the stars
In this night full of moonlight
Innocent as the rain and yet full with vain
A soul full of cracks, but strong as rocks

  

Love of Freedom

A breeze whistling over the branches of trees,
Giving soft touches to the leaves.
A lion hunting in the open wilderness,
Proud and strong with it endless glories.
An eagle flying over the mountains and seas,
Beyond the all earthly worries of our lives.
A star in the dark sky, a beacon for the tired souls
I want to be all, and ask for all
As I want to be free and whole.
A weight equal to what once Atlas,
Had shouldered with his great might

 

Early Days

Childhood is a spring breeze
On one can sail distant lands with dreams
Every coming year holds a fresh wonder
You can see heroes everywhere

Youth is an untamed steed
Everything beyond the horizon
Still awe-inspiring and new
Blessed with loves and ideals
Time goes by at an otherworldly gallop

These first years a cradle for the soul
A harbor sheltered from the storms of life
To love, to be loved and to discover are the greatest joys of all

Loneliness

Loneliness is an unwanted companion
A fire that never goes out
A black hole of nothingness
It is a room with no exits
no sounds,only Silence and darkness

Loneliness is like a disease
It slowly kills you in the inside
Slowly it devours you
Slowly decaying and rotting
to the core

A worn cage that enslaves you
A never ending maze
Darkness is all you see
An empty alley that leads to nowhere
Freedom seems out of reach
A tunnel that leads to oblivion
A sign saying,”Welcome to Nowhere”

Lost in a world that seems so alien
The streets in ruin and bare
Hope seems only like a folktale in this empty world
Darkness and pain is all you know
Life seems like a far away dream
Abandoned in darkness
No light to guide you
Death seems like the only solution
But you forgotten that you are already dead.

Loneliness

Loneliness is a place,
a realm of nowhere.
It is a room with no exits,
no sounds,
no life.

Loneliness is a belief.
No one cares for me.
No one knows me.
What is wrong with me?
Why should I go on?
Why should I even try?

Loneliness is a siren
calling you sweetly,
Hearken to the call
and fall into oblivion.
Firmness and denial
the long road out to freedom.

I have heard that siren.
Heard the deceptive music.
Walked the paths of heartache.
Faced blissful oblivion

And I have fought that madness!
Stepped off the brink of darkness
and sought the way to freedom,
that lead out to light and love.

Untitled

A glass wall separates me from my site.

So that the world teasingly dangles in front of me,

Knowing that I can’t touch it.

Knowing that I only await waiting to

Waiting for the tiger, clawing fervently underneath my skin

to find an exit,  to find freedom, but mostly,

you.
