Review

So I been told

All through the night

How bad I am

“You are a parasite”

The parasite told me

While sucking

My blood

“You used me”

She said taking

My money and hope

“Love me, why don’t

You love me

Now I am burned out

Because of you”

While running around

In circles blaming

The world

Pitying herself

Without You

The sun still shines

The flowers blooms and

Life goes on

With or without you

Wherever in the world

You are my love

In Absence

The lost man

Searching for himself

In the void

Between him and others

Trying to connect

Trying to reach out

But to no use

Eternal loneliness

Is his credo

Not reality

But imagination

Still real

The Old Mans Song

The finest hour was always

To our surprise

A crowded one

We shared our lives

With the crowd

Around us

The food, the clothes and the dirty

Mattresses in the dining hall

Still this is fond memories

We had a common cause

Now I am old and wealthy

My five bedroom house is empty

And the pool is never used

We are like strangers or

Even worse enemies to

Each other

Avoiding to meet even

Over dinner

Night

Barren fields

Empty spaces

Watching the silence

Feeling fear, hope

And the moon

Gives no hope
