In this blog post I would like to share yet another poem that I composed recently.
Its about death and sorrow, love and sadness. All crammed up.
There are somethings which I say in a casual, almost humorous way, and others which I strain a serious note.
It is a conflicted state of affairs not only for the content, but also because I state conflicting things,
in addition to a conflict of intention.
I hope you enjoy,
CONFLICTED STATE OF AFFAIRS
Death came by one day
and I said go away I said
you took the one I love
but you ain't taking me you ain't
I always felt stars shine brighter when I'm asleep
I always thought love was but not for me
Chasing sunsets hoping for the day to end
and at sunrise all that was lost will come again
Sorrow stood at the door knocking
but I wouldn't let it in
of it a pool had festered in the living room
and its last remnants out the window went
I said I've had enough of you I said
unaware and unwilling of the bond that I had sealed
like the waves you keep coming I told him
and as it's meant to be you crash onto me still
Squandering these precious hours for an artificial high
letting them return without ever saying goodbye
I make my luck, my burden I bear
and if you ever try to love me I'll act like I don't care.
