of all the battles
that I have won
the biggest
were the ones
I waged against
my own self

    I agree, the worst demons we could ever face are the ones created by our own psyche. I’m not winning everyday but the fortresses that I managed to build over the years have been holding up well, vulnerable but able to keep most negative forces from busting into my head’s happy space.

    at least my dear
    you have won,
    I have none,
    but one,
    continuous war
    and self keep,
    raging, waging, engaging,
    the soul keep reneging
    all promises made
    until lights fade,
    eyes turn red,
    heart becomes numb,
    and the brain is dead,
    and I am I, no more
    I can see a light
    at the end
    and it is a beautiful
    smiling you
    at heaven’s door
    while a hell’s pariah,
    will clean that floor
    where your feet will touch,
    it is not much,
    however allows contentment,
    that I knew someone,
    who won,
    many, not two or one,
    battles, self rattles,
    soul settles,
    that it can smell,
    sweet roses from
    softest toes
    removing woes
    and becomes
    my panacea to eternal pain

        Hi Himani, so good to have you back! Apologies there are too many random words in my scribble – while yours, as always, are in perfect sync with the milky-way. I hope that you keep coming back to this forgotten corner of the universe and allowing us to enjoy your presence and company.

            I hope ’till I can’ is just poetic and not reality!

            I wish on a falling meteor,
            that a crater created lasting forever,
            a beautiful soul reside amidst,
            her unnerving words, failing to resist,
            temptation to taste, in unwarranted haste,
            those words and lips which speak the same,
            the girl of the east, made western dame,
            honey dripping tongue, bee in the name,
            May fate makes reality the dream,
            and I, poor I, see you beam, joyous scream,
            flying in the wind, leaving all behind,
            heaven on earth, infinity crater I find,
            lady slumbers with fairies who sing,
            words she speaks, and wishes she brings
            to life, forever, until the day
            when God ordains, curtain drops,
            foolish humanity had its last hop

          if we come to terms with that truth, perhaps we can help our own selves and then benefit others 🙂
