March of Tears

This entry is one of my favorites because it is dedicated to everyone affected by the earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan on 11 March, 2011. I send my thoughts and prayers to all the victims, families, workers, and more who helped with the recovery of the affected areas and people. This was originally written on March 11, 2016.

Despite words never reaching

And tears never breaching

Memories of that day never fail

To return me to the veil

Of no tomorrow

Routine was followed that day

Sleeping on opposite sides of the bed

Cursing each other with words of lead

We never got tired of ripping each other away

Why did you stay?

Why did I stay?

We weren’t strong enough maybe?

Did we stay together just for the street cred?

Or were pieces of love lingering instead?

Finally the day came for you to leave me, baby

But ocean waves pulled you from me for eternity

Grey skies and dark waves

Erase stories never finished, stories that we crave

In a March of tears

In a March of tears

Your soul with its own story drifts to the skies

Leaving me alone to face a new sunrise

Days turn into weeks

While routine hides the pain and tears

I sleep in a bed heated by nightmares

Cursing myself with words of regret in shrieks

Why did you go?

Why didn’t I go?

We weren’t strong enough anymore

Oh, we stayed just for the treats

But pieces of love definitely existed

Cause when the day came for you to leave, baby

The ocean waves left behind your pieces of me

Grey skies, dark waves

So many lost stories

In a March of tears

In a March of tears

Your soul drifts to the skies

Leaving me lost in a world of despair

Now 5 years on

My tears are gone

Still I cling to what you left behind

Since you are still stuck in my mind

But for your sake, I will soldier on (soldier on)

Through the March of tears

Grey skies, dark waves

So many lost stories

In a March of tears

In a March of tears

Your soul drifts to the skies

Leaving me lost in a world of despair

But soldier on (soldier on)

Through the March of tears

But soldier on (soldier on)

Through the March of tears

A Silent Wish

I hold so many lost dreams and wishes in my heart that the poor organ doesn’t know what to do with it anymore. In the end, all it can do is ferociously pump the little dream and wish remnants along with my blood throughout my body. It’s fuel. It’s passion. It’s a merciless drug that feels so good you take more and more only to hit a crash when things turn sour or the world turns against you.

I wish for my dreams to never die and for my wishes to keep traveling across the Milky way along the stars’ pale river. I want my voice to be heard and yet I can’t speak for my dreams remain locked inside my body with my heart as its main provider. But one day I want my story to be heard so I can help others like me struggling in a society that seems to have forgotten their own dreams that remain trapped in a decrepit voiceless machine.

But first I must help myself before I bare the strength and wisdom to help others. I need to surpass my own inner demons and focus on my own silent wish locked inside my heart. It’s the only thing that hasn’t find its way out. It is confused and lost just as so many others on the place we call Earth. Where or what is the key to my wish? Just what is my wish that remains in bittersweet silence.

Dear Internet

Hello, internet and how are you? I doubt anyone is actually reading this amid the sea of webpages here on WordPress especially since I’m new but I’ll write anyway. I wanted to make a site to write and upload my work for others to see and be entertained by or critique or perhaps just hate on. It’s up to you. I write poems with some desperately trying hard to sound like lyrics just in case I can put them to music one day but unfortunately I’m no producer nor do I know a thing about music. Still, despite my ignorance, I still want to improve my writing and share it with others who may be impacted hopefully in a positive way to my messages or may even relate.

But I’m socially introverted and really awkward in situations that require me to act as a properly well-adjusted human being in this society of ours so forgive me if my work on the internet is lacking. I severely am lacking in the outside world so I felt that the internet would be a better refuge for someone like me. Perhaps.

Anyways, do you want to know more about me? I’m almost sure you don’t but I will say I’m female between high school and young adult age who loves reading, writing, sleeping, and eating sweets. I am religious (sorry atheists, but I send my love to you anyway) and believe that God will smite me anytime for my incompetence as a human being. I’m pretty naive as well though I’m not sure my writing reflects it.

Also, this post is way to long. If you read this far then great job! You may actually be interested in me. Thank you for checking out my site and my work. Please enjoy.
