thorns

naked truth

Posted on Updated on

what a strange beauty there is
in learning from the opposites

I love freely
because I know how it feels
not to be loved

I appreciate little things
whole heartedly
because I know how it is
to be taken for granted

I try hard to understand
because I know how it feels
to be misunderstood

I am and I am not
yet I persist

I often smile at the sun
I seek light
because I have seen
the darkest of nights

I know what freedom is
because I had been tied down
for too long to a place
I didn’t belong

I long for my home
because I know how agonizing
that separation is

covered in thorns
I delight in soothing
someone’s pain
having drowned in tears
I delight in a smile on a face

yes, you can call me insane
because I know there is nothing
no nothing in staying sane

I know yet I remain a fool
hiding behind words
look how I spill
my heart out

how amazing it is, I wonder
to have learnt from contradictions

pulsating essence

dear heart
should I mock you
or weep with you
such an innocent little fool you are!

in the whirlwinds of storm,
you withstood the freezing cold
in the heat of blazing fire,
you got pricked by thorns

knowing well whats coming next
you still teeter along!
with this tenderness, this strength
fearlessness and this craziness
where from?

I give you reasons
but you throw them away
I try to sit you down
but you want to break into dance and sway

ah what was whispered to you
that you’ve grown these wings
which nectar once quenched your thirst
that you run around looking for sweetness
what image do you behold
whose beauty makes you wild in ecstasy

only if someday I could trick you
into believing me
only if one day, I could show you the difference
between the black and gold
the pieces and the whole

if that day comes
would you still bother to keep beating?

tell me
would you still care to keep loving?
