How quickly the time has past, from this moment to that moment then to the last.
My hopes and dreams lost, perhaps or so it seems, like an actor in a tragedy cast.
Or could these be chapters instead in book about remorse, regret and dread, one that is only written within my head, one that only I have read.
Whatever the case may be, each sentence speaks about only me, and how I will continue to fight to be free, from a past that limits, a narrow view, one that only I can see.
How I got here I suppose matters not, I just hope to never repeat what history has taught. Because to think this has all been for naught is to think on a level that should be forgot.
But will forgetting ease the pain, like an umbrella shielding rain, I suppose in the end it is all quite the same, with no one else around to bear the blame.
Like the thorns that protect the rose I speak in a metrical prose, my words the thorns, my mind the rose.
I speak in a metrical prose.

silent friend

In times like these, and in times like those, we are forever lost reliving our woes.
Let light sprinkle down, let it wrap you up and make you warm,
From this moment on, protected from all harm.

We walk with you in the day, we stay by your side at night.
We guide you through the dark, and help you find the light.

We whisper our kisses into your ears, ringing like chimes and you wonder why you don't hear.

Always with you, tip toeing in and out
Can you hear me? Can you see me?

Every time you look me in the mirror...

I Feel So Stupid(Symbolism) Poem#6

I Feel So Stupid

Dear Sweetheart.
I am so sorry that I never told you what I wanted to tell you before I left.
I Feel So Stupid, That I never talked you about it, none of it was about neglect
If only I can show you that I’m still the same like a mirror so that I may Reflect
On the things I should have done with you, but the past is the past.
I wish everyday that I could’ve changed it but Damn time goes by fast!

I never forgot anything about you, which is strange
And I’m still trying not to set my mind into derange
I looked back at everything I did when I talked to you and…
Just like that… you slipped right out of my hand
I tried to catch you, but I guess I never tried hard enough
When I found out that I wasn’t the only one I never knew it would be so tough
I Feel So Stupid, trying to speak out to the people, but how am I to speak with gruff

What else can I do? To Resolve this? Or better yet to solve this?
I’ve been through it all, but you’re the only memory that I truly miss.
My Heart burns, cracks, weeps, shakes, crumbles, crushes, and worse off all breaks
So far last year, you were the only one that wasn’t one of the those fakes
But who am I to judge you? I barely know you but it seems that I’ve known you forever
What the hell am I saying? God I Feel So Stupid, why can’t I say never?
No! not this time, I’ve been running all my life no more will I pass the ones that mattered
Everyday you’re on my mind but with the shit that’s happening to me is why we scattered
I miss you and I regret not telling what I wanted to tell you when school ended
You are everything that I ever wanted, I never told you that I’ve always tended
About you, and all that I was trying to tell you for more a year was that I liked you

I Feel So Stupid

Author's Notes/Comments: 

As on my facebook one of my universally acclaimed poems people say, "i coudn't edit it to fix an already masterpiece" I guess, it was just a really hard time i went through and like many other poets, i just took time into it, and won highest award in poetry for Theater Competition

pretentious gaze

The rise of my day with a wishful hope
Blurred by faith i move on
If, maybe, but, never been there
A simple smile is always shared

If he wont come, another day i hope
But when he comes i froze
Dared, betrayed, i fear the most
Saved by pretentious gaze i own

A corner of content, a corner of pain
Betrayed and saved by a fool
Now is peace behind my gaze
Maybe then unveil this pretentious gaze
