#65 The Boy Walking in Time

Once upon a time, there was a boy
He walked on and on,
To reach a destination he never had.

Where was he going? He didn’t know.
What was the reason? Nothing kept him home.
How long would he walk? Who knows, it’s life.

Through the ups and downs, mist and rain,
The boy still walked on,
To a land unknown.

Five years ago, the boy met a woman
She hid behind a lot of mysteries, she was the unknown,
She was the Princess of the Clouds!

She asked where he was headed,
The boy couldn’t respond, he said he only walked
She smiled and said, I’ll walk along.

The boy stopped on his tracks,
Lost his desire to walk anymore,
He knew now he was home.

Now, five years later,
He comes back home one more time from another walk,
Will everything be the same?

It’s late night, travellers find rest in the sarai
The boy must walk on,
He has a place to reach tonight.

This time he knows his destination,
He knows the way and the reason,
Tonight the boy walks on, he must reach home.

Truly said, home is where heart is,
The boy realised, “my heart is in the East, buried far beneath,
Where Princess of the Clouds lives!”

#63 On the Roads (disclaimer: childishly and sleepily jotted down) 

One more night at an empty motel
The rooms all feel the same
The damp, the dim lights,
Lack the warmth that I had.

The coffee dates, the waffles
The rainy goodbye,
Will I ever forget what you did for me?
I will forget, only if I die.

Do you still look away and smile?
When you think of something funny
But cannot share it because you want to show,
That you are angry and serious you can be.

You know, you have the brightest smile
It is different, and special in this heart.
Made me feel better when I saw,
And you gave me a bit more hope.

Now that it’s dark and time to sleep,
I hope in our dreams we will meet.
Again a time I wish I find,
To hold your hands I hope I can.

#55 If You Tell Me Where

Who you are? Who you are?

Will I find it out this time?

I look for the obvious to happen
But we walk past, we never met,
How can we be so lost here, You and I.

The endless rain or not seeing you
I do not know which one hurts more,
Which one makes me feel more lonely! 

I know you stand there and look,
Why don’t you try to speak?
I wait for just one time.

If things were not so far,
If time was on our side,
We would have somewhere met, You and I.

The regrets of given away chances,
The puzzle pieces that did not fit,
It’s all meaningless, only to grief.

When you were in my place
Do you have those memories?
All breath gone,we sit apart, You and I.

Where can I find you?
In the moonlight your shadow is lost.

#51 Presence 

Imagine you are there!
But how does it matter?
Even if you stay or leave,
Nothing much changes.

If that is it, think
You are there, but your presence is unfelt.
Surrounded by a lot of voices, others
There is work, there is soul, there is authority above.

Does it change anything though?

Probably it does.
As long as the authority is established,
An invisible target shall stand in front.
I will stand by to aim my feelings
Wiping away staleness, wiping fear, losing all.

Let the heart lose today,
She will arrive there when the time is right.

#49 Blue Moon

Speak out for real
What you have been holding so far
Things need to change
From how you have survived all scars
Now live your life without fears.

The abuses,
They do not know how you suffer,
Won’t stop,
Even if you submit to their power.

Wake up
Look into the eyes that stare you down
Rise up
You have to break your chains.

When you come out
No one will stand by you and help
I know it’s not easy
But trust me things will be okay!

You never ever know
How much you can help yourself
More than others
It’s your life and it will stay with you.

Uncage yourself
No more things will hold you back
Make it happen
You need to break free only once.

Look above
There’s a silver lining up there
Future changes
Things do not remain the same.

Fly to the sky
When you wish to move to another world
Blue Moon,
There’s a floating palace waiting for you.

One step
Is all it takes to walk away
Welcome,
To yourself in the end.

#48 Enchanté 

Move far away after love, so forlorn
Gone, still the heart says no to it,
The vessel of wishes would keep on searching
Still I cannot make the ends meet.

Whenever I stand in front of you
Oh, I cannot speak my dreams
When I am away, I only wish for you.

Torn were all the accessories
Of my feelings hidden behind the futility
Time flowed countless, fairytales wiped away.
Still to get back again I pray.

Dreams are tied by kite strings
Turning musically some things said
Submissive this fancy
Not some pages from a story,
Still in dreams I wish, an entreaty.

What has sailed away should be forgiven
This lovely hellish enchant; but myself, I lose in her.

#46 Mirror of Colours

Tearing through the haze smirks a shout
A whirling run makes life a lot less complicated
What was together from the start
Has now gone away in two different ways.

Starting at the night the fears become stronger
Loneliness feels less lonely, at least one companion
The pillow doesn’t get wet, they think I have matured.
Only if people knew how bad it hurts to pretend and live.

The mossy undergrowth has decided to cover the scars
Can the light pass through the broken glasses just the same?
Tonight a few drops rain again from the sky,
Wind will blow, time starts healing once more.

Feelings cannot be seen through the eyes,
They can be painted by heart and realised.
