Serene

June 10, 2013

Many times I hid those feelings,
Many times I kept to myself,
And when I finally said one word,
Everything around burst into pieces.

I did not see it coming,
I don’t know why it happened,
I got carried away,
Very far away.

The anguish in the eyes,
The quiver in the skin,
The lips became so dry,
A fainting sigh awry.

Walk away,
Walk away I thought,
Do not look back,
And stay serene.

No words were spoken,
No silence broken,
The distance grew,
And all fell thru.

No more gentle strokes,
No more breathless whispers,
No more peaceful heartbeats,
It all just vanished quickly.

I did not see it coming,
I don’t know why it happened.
I got carried away,
Very far away.

Big mistake,
Big mistake I thought,
Do not speak up,
And stay at serene.

The sun goes by,
The stars still shine,
So I must go,
Without a soul.

Helpless child confused and broken,
The million words that once were spoken,
Have now begun their slowly journey,
To the land of memories and shattered dreams.

It’s alright,
It’s all fine,
Keep walking forward,
And stay serene.
