I Want Candy

IMG_20170525_134045_001

Candy was a flavorful trip

Exciting my sweet taste buds

But leaving an empty craving

Of no lasting memory

The Singer

I want to sing at the top of my lungs

But there’s no one around to hear

Release these sweet melodies from my chest

Hold nothing back, no fear

When I sing out loud

I feel the air move around me

The silence cut like a knife

Climb another mountain

Leave the old world blindly

Like a drug

These notes

Flowing through my head

Like an icy water stream

 

 

 

 

 

 

Engaged

And so this chapter ends

Not with me

But with him

My futile efforts

To win her love

Now ends with a ring

This minute era

Now memories cherished

But locked, key thrown away

The sun will rise

The moon will wane

The ocean’s tide

The April rain

Reminding me of sweet perfume

And eyes of a misty glaze

That one February day

On the edge of the great plain

Holds a place in my brain

 

 

The Changing

My whole world is changing

Things aren’t the way they used to be

I feel the past slipping away

And the future calling for me

My dreams must not stay dreams

They must come true some day

For I am more than just a number

Uniquely I am

Ready to launch

Away from that vanilla sea

Of monotony and boredom

But the gravity will always

Bring me back down

In the very end

 

 

The Old Man

oldman

The friendly old man

Never hurt a fragile soul

Happiness spreads all around

Easter Haiku

God will call upon

The saints who walk softly

On Easter Sunday

Unfocused

When I start to lose focus

Everything seems so bad

What I did yesterday seems like a fad

Those goals that I had

Suddenly are lost in the shuffle

I’m no good anymore

It’s all a kerfuffle

My words need to have meaning

They need to strike a chord with my heart

Be able to last forever, be like art
