Last Song

I will trace out the beats of my heart,

Here on these paper parts,

The unsteady rhythm that barely keeps me going,

The constant pumping that is secretly my undoing,

The visual tapestry that I cannot for the life of me stand,

All the waves and frequencies that I do not understand.

I will write down this song that my heart sings,

Every solemn tune and the melancholy it brings,

Note by somber note till it’s all out on here,

A masterful catastrophe it is, for to no rules does it adhere,

A composition by this frail heart of mine that still beats for you,

Helpless and hopeless with nothing more to do.

I will let the music play on to its quiet end,

Until my heart can finally, slowly mend.

The Simple Joys

What if we dared shed,
The cloak of pride that,
Though heavy and suffocating,
We so devoutly wear?
Would the person we see,
In the mirror of true self,
Be too much of a contrast,
From the person we let be seen?

What if we spoke from the heart,
Looked on with love in our eyes,
Smiled with all sincerity,
Upon those life brings upon us?
Would we lose our being,
Or become less than we ought to be?
Would the sun cease to shine,
Or would the skies of our life darken?

Each breaking dawn we take up new pain,
That gnaws at our insides incessantly,
A prison we have designed for ourselves,
All the while pretending to be free,
Our distorted understanding of happiness,
Yet all we need do is seek ourselves,
To learn that our greatest longings,
Are those met by the simplicities of life.
