Tag Archives: uncertainty

It creeps in, unexpected,

Like a ray of light, stray

With the dawn of

Yet another day

 

Like a gust of wind

In an arid desert

A mirage that its presence

Will deviously assert

 

Like the drops of rain

Greedily soaked in

By the parched ground-

An indulgent sin

 

It will stay, mocking

Teasing what you cherish

Will then disappear, as suddenly as it came

Leaving you bereft, steadily to perish

It was a cold evening
The frost stung my lips
I waited, patiently
Right beneath our tree
 
But you never came
 
The sun sunk low
The clouds huddled closer
To retain some warmth
Perhaps against an impending storm
 
But you never came
 
I watched the pavement
I wished for the familiar sound
Of your footsteps on the gravel
I hoped all was well
 
Because you never came
 
I walked back alone
Yearning for you by my side
A hand to clasp
A reassuring grasp
 
But you never came
 
Some lonely nights
I sit by the fire
And wonder what became of you
Pondering if you think of me too

 

Questioning, why you never came

 

Selective revelations

Make-believe

Only certain confidences

Passing through the sieve

 

Contradictions in

Your earnest voice, your shifty eyes

Give me a reason, to be blind

Give me a reason, to believe your lies

 

Space, an infinite expanse
Stretching endlessly
Separating
You and me
Yet, there is so much
That we still share
The light from the moon
The stars at which we patiently stare
The same bittersweet
Memories
Binding us
In time, they freeze
I fervently hope, tomorrow
The warmth does not
Melt the frozen moments, timeless
Washing away all that we’ve got

There’s a thick haze
Around stars I see at night
Obstructing the path of my gaze
Making it all seem less bright
The moon takes cover
Behind clouds damp
Refusing to shower
It’s light on the swamp
In the faint, yet distinct moonlight
That has betrayed it’s source
There’s a strange quality to the night
Making uncertain its further course
I wait for the heavy mist to rise
For the clouds to clear away
I no longer can strain my eyes
To find the correct way

The unspoken words

The stolen glances

Holding back

Losing chances

 

Perpetual fear

Lingering doubts

Keeping silent

When I want to shout

 

A wall to keep

The uncertainty at bay

If you get too close

You might walk away

 

The fortress is but

Made of ice

To guard the tears

Of my silent cries

 

Scared to be

What I am

Continuing to live

This pleasant sham

 

Haunting thoughts

Nagging me

Keeping me from

Letting you see

 

The real me

Cushioned in layers

My wishful heart

Mumbling silent prayers

 

Treading closer

You may see the mess

If you knew me more

Would you love me less?
