TRANSITS OF THE SUN

The sun shone brightly today
It was beautiful 
Or so they tell me

I saw it
I know it was there
But I couldn’t feel its presence

Everything is dark in my world
As another day passes without you
Another day without warmth 
Another day without light
Another day like every other
Since you’ve been gone 

Shining sun 
Skies of azure blue 
And fluffy white clouds

But none of them exist in my world anymore 

There is no color
There is no hue 
Everywhere I turn 
I see nothing but the absence of you 

When will it shine again?
I don’t know 
My sun is gone 
And I don’t know if he will come back 

I am the moon 
Trapped in eclipse 
Invisible and silent 
Cold and dark 
The world is between us 
And your light cannot shine on me 
Now I’m just a sphere 
Void of life
I emanate nothing 

And here all I can do 
Is wait for the earth to move
For this barrier to pass
So your light will shine on me 
Then I will reflect your brilliance
Then I will radiate your light 
And finally enveloped in your love
I will be beautiful again.

Silently - March 22, 2013

 

I am a new aquaintance that is yet to make a sound.

Yet to be understood, I show no feelings aloud.

When I depart from the public, go home to flee,

I feel the need to tease, to please my sanity.

Silently, I cry. Silently, I die. Silently, I try

to overcome my insanity; bridge over the pain in me.

 

You make me feel like an outcast just because I'm not like you.

Should I be like who? I'm sick of your complaining,

you're straining me, draining me of energy. Listen to me, please.

It's not you, it's me! My plea for individuality is wrong;

too long do I have to wait for acceptance; you'll never repent this.

Take my fist and bury it under the sand; my will in your hands.

I'm powerless against conformity. I'm just a deformity

on this tumor you call me. Free me of this disease,

I'm fucking begging, on me knees. Please, please,

make me who you want me to be. Tell me, please, what you want to see.

I don't care if it's not me. Make a new me. One you want to see.

Make me what you want to see.
