Isolation

Hundreds of miles away trying to find a missing piece

In isolation, in contemplation, in desperation

Longing for a genuine human experience

For an opportunity to feel needed and loved

 

Only in solitude will true silence comes

To hear what the heart screams for day and night

What the spirit craves for every waking hour

What the mind whispers to the universe

 

The vastness of everything will swallow you whole

Helpless, seeking divine intervention, false salvation

An unhealthy salivation for fulfilment

Awakened to a desperate reality of pain

 

Listen to your soul in isolation

Isolation in a crowd full of strangers

Isolation in a mind full of strange thoughts

Isolation in a heart full of thoughtless doubts

 

Aren’t we all together in isolation?

Every interaction is a lost opportunity

Every opportunity is a reason for disdain

Every disdain is a reason for isolation

 

Isolation, isolation, isolation

Should it be said louder for someone to hear?

Isolation, isolation, isolation

No more, no more isolation…

In times like this…

Your eyes look at me
And it sees strength and valor
They pierce through me

And bask in my positivity
I am a hero
I am rock
I am a wall
I am the ground on which you stand onBut in times like this,
Let me crumble
Let me shiver in the cold
Let the tears cascade

In times like this,
Let me be naked and bare
Let my soul tremble
Let my lips quiver

In times like this,
Let me surrender
Let my weakness out
Let my words fumble

I am a hero
I am a rock
But in times like this
Let me be a child…

Midnight Musings

With eyes closed

Lost in a world of make believe

Trying to feel that feeling that seems too elusive

A feeling that I can’t afford

A feeling that I never understood

 

Sleep eludes me

Like a lover that won’t come to bed

Trying to make out a face that seems too unfamiliar

A face that I recognize, but not quite know

A face that I can’t just seem to read

 

Messed up sheets

Akin to a restless mind bereft of reason

Trying to find sense in a world that seems too cruel

A world that takes too much

A world that gives too little

 

Melody brings sentiment

Where words fail to create imagery

Trying to console a soul that seems too broken

A soul filled with childlike wonder

A soul yearning to be free
