Gifts I’ll Cherish

I’m not tired in the least,
and yet I only feel like sitting still.
My mind tells me I should carry on,
but my body doesn’t have the will.

I’ve come to despise being awake.
While I yearn for something real,
people around me are all so fake.

It’s easy to see you’re dissatisfied with us,
so why not end this false attachment now?
Before we get to the point in time
where pain is a fire too widespread to douse.

Let me go, I won’t protest.
You can quickly move on to the next,
and again I’ll be free
to look for who? one can only guess.

Social networking

yet quite separate.

Bar

In a noisy bar where sorrows are drowned,
the concept of honest love doesn’t seem to exist.
What appears meaningful to the outsider
is only another one-night stand, a drunken kiss.

Poppyfields

Blue-eyed violin,
your soft notes reverberate
through my liquid heart
and stay long after slumber
lays me down in poppyfields.
