Borrowed

Borrowed

.

Scribbled symbols translated

by the impulses in my mind

into words impregnated

by the copulating emotions

borrowed whenever I can’t find

my own.

Ignorance with such naïve

creative notions

that words are owned

when in them

your life I see

reflected,

and with every rhyme

I become a thief.

Apathy

Apathy

Stuck in the limbo of things

lacking something

trying to fly without wings

I sleep… I sleep…

No morning to define

a new day

promises rusted

old lies… new lies..

Arms entrusted

to care… to stay…

I’ll be fine.

Life

.

Slowly flowing between my fingers

without desperation letting it pass

for there is no price to pay at last

and the bitter taste only lingers

for a moment and then goes fast.

~

It is only a season without time

a ticktack of days like a dream

glued one by one into a scheme

of a borrowed life I call mine

as I flow to the end of the stream.

~

But the glue that holds me here

becomes light to guide my soul

while the flesh brittle and old

will turn to dust and disappear

the who I am will stand and hold.
