We visit the memories here;
Phantasmic scenes of fun play out
on the verge, before us.
Ghostly little ones sneakily rustle
through the bushes, behind us.
Faint giggles of yesterdays intertwine
with the breeze, all around us.
We visit our memories here,
As we add to the tale of our history.
.
And all I can think is; how did we get here, so suddenly...❤️

Where are you? I have been waiting. This morning, I cooked breakfast. I was half guessing whether I should make a meal for two. Just maybe, you’ll arrive home hungry. And you know at eight, as I was preparing to live my days as usual, I didn’t lock the main door because I know I couldn’t hear you knock from the shower. If you arrive, you will only have to turn the knob and you wouldn’t have to call for me. But there was no one else in the house after I took a bath. So I prepped myself for a long day of stray conversations, hoping I could talk more substance than casual. Hoping to exchange words with people that wouldn’t mind my lack of interest. Or otherwise. I had to leave for a while, for my dreams but you know you will find me in places where I frequent. Only in places that I grow.
This afternoon, I was in school. I went to the library to search for a book of poems but all they have are books of all-in literature. I wish you saw my frustration or how the students were looking at me as I was bringing two thick collections to an empty table. I was wondering if I looked smart or ridiculous. I was hoping you could make it because there was this poem of life entitled The Dash and well, it was amazing. I stayed there for an hour. In one table with stranger companies and an empty chair infront of me. But there was no you that arrived.
The sun is setting before my eyes and time went by too fast. It felt like I was just waiting by the porch for the sun to rise and for you to come home. I am now on top of the roof of the house I grew upon—an entirely imperfect household. I watch the clouds roll smoothly above me, the sky transforming colors from orange and purple to a soft black. I see birds chasing and chirping after each other as they cut through the air only to separate and meet. The wind is cold, the kind I would let to sweep my skin. I am looking at a load of favorite things. And you are still not here.
Where are you? I am trying to live it (this life) less scared and scarred. But please, please do not come too late.

I believe,
I am a grownup -
when I blink just fast enough
I am.
Even with my milk teeth,
and I like to sort and know it all,
I want the answers, all of them,
to questions and to minds that fall.
I can do it on my own, do I see a frown?
I am the shiny knight (with spectacles)
and funny, yes, stage fright (no obstacles)
I need to stand now, tight and bright,
and be the anchor and I know the side
of right or wrong, I know it, know it,
smile, I smile, my smile is fixed
but yes, I think I'm real.
Together together
i keep it
with all might, i have to, deal.
Until - what have you said to me?
There is no answer? But there has to be,
tell me, that there is. There is no way
that there are more truths bound to play.

Grey does not exist.
Grey does not exist.
Grey is nonexistent.
Grey is white in eyeballs turned inside.

Grey is flaying of my thinny skin.

I'm sorry. I am tired now. The world
is draining horror story. Leave me be.

I'm nothing more than a cross twisted
out of bubblegum wrappers. .

Observe how a tree
bares its all under the hands
of the scarlet autumn,
embraces the cold arms
of the chilling winter,
and patiently, ever patiently
waits for the warm kiss of spring.

You’re as resilient (or even more)
as a majestic tree.
You can heal over, again and again,
please, oh please, believe me.
