Let’s get along with the feeling of hopelessness


That ring you want,

That smile you cherish,

That call you had,

Those cheeks with blemish,

That friend you had,

Still have, you wished,

That leap of faith,

And fall to perish,

Those guts it took to ask a question,

Spawned reasonable yet unwanted reaction,

Those stars you see lining up for you,

To make out meaning when none is due.

 

Welcome despair, I’ll cherish you,

Welcome despair, hopeless me, and you.

Let’s get along with the feeling of hopelessness

But Not in God


I have lost faith a many too much times,

And lost I was in the depths of my mind,

In the crevices of my heart black,

Darken by idioms and idiotic tact.

 

I have lost faith in many like the stars,

In people and places and times across the verse,

In you and I and in cherished lies,

In human eyes and foolish ties,

In all the many;

-family,

-society,

-me.

 

I have lost faith,

I have lost faith,

I have lost faith,

I have lost faith,

I have lost faith,

I have lost faith,

 

I have lost faith in the many a too much,

I have lost faith a countless times too much,

I have lost faith in compassion and in grudge,

I have lost faith in a better world and us.

 

I have lost faith a many times,

But not in God, Most Gracious One.

But Not in God

Resonance


Blessings astound afforded by little,

Embraces the whole in the grievance to many.

 

Songs of the lull and the storm that came after,

Thread ever so lightly over heartstrings,

Round up strangers and friends alike,

Omitting the differences of them and they,

Nudging along the depressed, the lessened,

Giving hope for morrow in the form of resonance.

Resonance

Awhile


It’s been awhile since last I saw you,

Your fingertips, they dance so gracefully,

It’s been awhile since last I saw that smile,

You purse your lips and then smile to me.

 

It has been long since I’ve forgotten you,

Oh life goes on, you’re just passing by,

It has been long since I forgive you,

For the tears you brought to my eyes.

 

Oh, where are you now?

Are you okay somehow?

Do you still smile and laugh,

Like you used to?

 

And if we were to meet,

Let’s go to that cafe and sit,

Chat over coffee or tea.

 

It’s been awhile since last I saw you,

You looked so happy, is it true?

It’s been awhile since I last wrote to you,

‘Cause I remembered you out of the blue.
