The Resignation

Argument of you and love has progressed
A reason for this case has been devised

The cause is your mystical, warm aura
The effect is so compelling yet disguised

I feel as if I’m home in your presence
If this world is not all cruel and selfish

I feel as if the time has held its breath
If this inner chasm is being replenished

And I have seen my sadness in your eyes
The windows to darkness you’ve held inside

Our driven souls still long for something
Striving to not yield our crowning pride

I’ve only had a few moments with you
But it feels like I’ve known you forever

Reckon it’s true what’s said about old souls
They can, indeed, recognize each other

Now if you realise this too, do not come
For I dwell in a place; there’s no return

I wish you to be content and at peace
As time’s come for this case to be adjourned

Redemption

There is a path for all that lives
Yet no one follows the righteous

I’ve committed sins, been led astray
By those, I’ve loved ever timeless

I can keep digging my way to hell
Because it seems all too familiar

Perhaps, it’s not late to atone, so
I shall opt a path to help recover

But I will not leave my darkness
As it’s the only home I’ve known

And I’ll again find courage to love
A feeling, I’m determined to hone.

 

The Void

Spending years without making memories
Telling oneself it won’t matter due arrogance

Believing that growth isn’t chronological,
That time can be skipped, avoiding aberrance.

Not knowing it may cause emptiness in soul
A void that is indeed older than the time

A man must embrace past to move forward
The way, roots grow first to build the stem

Because some things have a higher meaning
And if past is unembraced, then it plagues

The time gone by is a dangerous thing if
Ignored, it doesn’t catch up, it overtakes.
