The Ballads of a Stranded Soul

"The teller and the tale are very different, never forget that"

Month: January, 2015


The weakened light
Accustomed to patterns of darkness
I saw the lie becoming
Taking it all for granted
The vows broken are many
Something I lost forever now

You left along the way
Now there is no conclusion
Indifference consumes my eyes
Fixations fading around the edge
Repetition, the labor that it brings
I have no other

I have to walk this way alone now
In emptiness I abide by
Trusting the ones that never trusted me
Seeking the end
The verdict that lies for me
Seclusion, in death I shall follow you

In my absence, when time shall pass
See the mornings rise
See beyond this illusion,
Do you remember now
When there was no darkness
When everything could still remain!




Our Last Goodbye!


Close your eyes and listen to my voice

Disguised by the malevolent storms

That began from within me

Close your eyes and listen

As I sing to you beneath the moonlit sky

Not to drive away your fears

But to caress your demons inside

Listen, as I sing to you our last goodbye,

The dreams of us, that held my life.

Now there is just so much left to say

The truth, after all thisĀ time.

Every religion I’d question, every faith I’d doubt

Every God, I’d ask to show himself for me to believe in them

Infidel to the thoughts of the many watching over me

I found it hard, to gaze upon the sky and wish for anything

Until, I joined my hands in prayer, and shut my eyes

To envision a god who I barely knew

To make you and I as soul-mates in this life and,

What a wonderful life it was

A magical world that you shared with me

For as long as you were besides

I loved you to farthest reaches of everything.

All that I am now, you let me be

And a poet’s fantasy you were to me.

My time is running out now,

And my shadows are escaping into darkness

Questions engulf the heart

That was once filled with desire and devotion.




Another Year Ends!

Against the sky,Ā 

A flickering light

The sun sets on the war

With the break of dawn

And another year ends upon us

The curtains fall as

Every reminiscent emotion withers

As every visceral memory fades

The songs that once resonated to your voice

A static remains in its place in my heart

The haunting visions, finally let me go

But the burden stays,

Like a discerning friend

Still weighing heavily on my salvation

The darker days shall remain

What you left shall always live within me

I do not wish for a new life

I wish for the torn pieces to make me whole once again.
