tattooed

She walked upon the rocky shore,
a dress that matched the sky;
The sky, so clear, not a cloud in sight,
upon the soft wind, a seagull’s cry

The memory of her doesn’t fade,
it’s like a tattoo upon my mind;
it’s vibrance and colours may change,
but the imprint forever left behind.

the memories remain,
the feelings persist,
the joys amplified,
the sadness… keeps her memory closer
star-crossed – loved, lost, live!

Lonesome

I thought I knew
what loneliness was,
those many years
of school…
But when you walked
away from me,
all I wanted then
was you…
Shattered and spent
my heart kept beating
yet echoed in
the abyss
Until that time,
when darkness fell
I never thought
I’d miss
Another person
so absolutely…
I wandered around
so lost…
I want you here
back into my life
no matter what
the cost.

Without you

Without you
the world turns,
the tides rise and fall.
In the east,
the sun rises,
in forests, birds call.

Without you
trees still grow,
and birds flitter about.
On the streets
traffic runs,
and horns do flout.

Without you
movies are made,
pretenders to love.
On-screen kiss,
scripted passions,
not what life’s made of.

Without you
stars still shine,
on lovers who stare.
Amidst wars
peace is found
in a friend’s care.

Without you
my heart beats,
the rhythm’s the same,
And my soul,
indelibly marked
with your true name.

Without you
life goes on,
night follows day,
but with you,
in your arms
I’d rather have stayed.
