On precious & fragile things

 
You were overwhelmed
as you sat down
on a green baize chair,
stared at your feet
through your knees.

I wanted to tell you
that the light is never
further away than reach
but it didn’t seem
right somehow

as you remained,
back silently arched
against a curve of loss,
a carpet catching
dark dens
of tumbling leaves.

You said nothing—
it seemed natural somehow

to dwell in thin absence,
to think of her coffin
in terms of delicate things

you’d of stumbled too,
but I’d of caught your tears
in the middle of a room
as I watched your dedication
to the art of falling apart.

There’s so little left”
you said

as you sat
on a green baize chair,
stared at your feet
through your
knees.

Comfort in the Silence

 
How many times
Did we walk long and lonely roads
With troubles behind and tribulations ahead
Thoughts to ourselves
Way too many to sort or even count
And though we were lost
We also found comfort in the silence

I used to have plans and ideas
To get away
From all the pains and sins
But it always led me to a place
Where it felt like home
In the midst of synths and beats
That somehow made sense

Here, in the stillness
I find memory and peace
Like dear old friends
Who once held me in their arms
Reminding me that
Everything is going to be alright

Dearest five..

 
  
Won't disguise you!..
Won't disgust you!..  

What I always asked of my five friends..
   
My "soul" in peace go to sleep free..    
My "mind" could you go evil free?..  
My "heart" please go delivery..  
Don't possess my "body"    
Devil let go of My buddies!..  
My "shadow" walk free with me..  
You my dearest ever pals I need to be..
