Just POOF

The weekend's approachingNot looking forward to it,Because it means workDrowning up to my nose.What can I do tomorrow?Can I just go away like that,Hide from responsibilitiesJust "poof" from earth?My eyes are droopingMy mouth keeps yawning,Much as I'd...

Hide Far Away

The inner peace I'm seekingIs nowhere to be found,There's too much noiseAll around and within me.Give me the quiet I seekThe peace of mind I need,Before I go cray crayFrom the havoc in my life.If only I could go awayI would right this minute,Actually...

Long Rest

The heart is willingBut the mind is not;The body is tiredThe spirit lethargic.Once a while it happensAnd I hide deep within;Hoping for it to passAnd it will but when?There are times I feel soIt's happening more often;When the days are longAnd nights...

The cold wind blowsAnd the trees whisper,Ruffling the curtainsAnd cooling the room.Strange knocks on the windowsGiving me a fright,Chill runs through my spineGoosebumps on my arm.Pull my housecoat closerLight up the joss sticks,Chant a short mantra.T...

As I sit by the windowCatch the passing scenery;Head filled with thoughtsThat I can't shake off easily.Of the past, present, futureLife that was, is and will be,Something I cannot changeBut everything that makes me.My vision becomes blurryWhile head...

Cower In My Bed

The sky is angryWith deafening thunder,And flashing lightingAs the rain pours.Non-stop for five hoursThe cry goes on and on,Like there's no tomorrowPerhaps there really isn't.I am rolled up in bedUnder the sheets,Listening to the agonyFearful of the...

Squeezed to the Max

Brain squeezed to the maxLike desiccated coconut,You keep asking for moreBut I'm already maxed out.See what you're doing to meHurts so much deep down,A shell of a person I amOn my face a perpetual frown.No more creative juiceI'm dry to the core,Yet w...

Light Over Darkness

The dark sky lights upAs fireworks are set off;It's the Festival of LightsLight triumphs over darkness.It's a warzone out thereWith bing bing bang bang;It's not crackling soundsBut more like gunshots.Noises to scare away evilMaking babies cry;Dogs un...
