Amidst Silence and Tears

You
Betrayed me
I wept and wailed
In agony
I could die a thousand deaths
And cursed a million times
Amidst silence and tears.

But i chose to simply cry
‘Till the tears run dry
And i could cry no more
I suffered in silence
I was quiet
But i was brave
Amidst silence and tears.

You
Can destroy me
But you can never bring me down
Nor topple my spirit
For i am empowered
Amidst silence and tears.

Beautiful Mess

 

 

I cry in silent whimper
I wept along anger…

I sob while i groan
I lament as i moan…

I am a beautiful mess

Tonight (Mirror Cinquian)

20180306_012756

Tonight,
Your beside me
With thoughts of tomorrow
And forgetting yesterday just
Tonight.

Let me
Be the one to hold your dreams and
Make them come true for you
I  love you, so
Let me.

 

A Cinquain is a 5-line poem (quintet) with a set line length of 2-4-6-8-2 syllables. It does not rhyme, although I suppose it could rhyme if you wanted it to.

A Mirror Cinquain, then, is a 10-line poem (decastich) made up of two Cinquains, where the second is reversed, forming a mirror image of the first.

So in summary, the Mirror Cinquain is

A decastitch (10-line stanza) with an emphasis on the syllabic count of each line.Syllabic count: 2-4-6-8-2-2-8-6-4-2It should express a complete thought and may be on any theme and express any mood.Rhyme is optional.
It’s Your Turn!

Now it’s time for you to write a Mirror Cinquain. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

Choose a topic. It can be anything. If you’re struggling for an idea, you might consider the Daily Prompts from The Daily PostDON’T worry about rhyme, as it’s not necessary here.DO keep a handle on the syllable count for each line.Try to avoid filler words. Instead, use a thesaurus to find precise words that give you the right syllable count for each line.Don’t be afraid to break a word if need be, but avoid it if possible. Or perhaps you may want to go crazy with word breaks, so as to enhance a humorous mood.It just so happens that I made lines 1 and 10 the same in both sample poems, but this is not a rule. They only have to be 2 syllables, not necessarily identical, so don’t feel as though you must also do that.And of course, when you are finished, share your poem with the rest of us.

Don’t know how? Follow these simple steps…

Only Because You’re Seated Next To Me

Only Because You’re Seated Next To Me

20180228_182544

Little ray of light from
the farthest distance
And above
Seemingly unassuming
Beautifuly adorned
Indeed lovely
Because i am seated next to you.

Colors so vibrant
Only naked eyes
Could see
Breathlessly stunning
Magnificently festive
Truely amazing
Because i am seated next to you.

 

 

How Do I Say Goodbye?

20180218_124219

 

I.
I took the plane with you, our
hands joined together when you ask
I wanna know how can something
so wrong feels so right all along?
and when does a love so true
never actually was meant to be?
Will someone please let me know.

Chorus I:

So i say just love me and make me smile
‘Cos baby that’s all i need for a while.
Please help me make it through..

II.

The plane is on its final descent now,
Will this be then our last goodbye?
And soon it will be taxing
we will part ways, that’s for sure
But I still wanna know how do i say
my final goodbye?
Will someone please let me know.

Chorus II:

So i say just love me now and make me smile
‘Cos baby that’s all i need for a while
Please help me make it through.

 

Bridge..

Baby help me make it through
As i walk home alone without you..

 

 

 

P.S.

I was seated next to a lovely couple on a plane  during my recent trip abroad. Little did i know that this lovely couple will teach me one lesson in life that we thought we all know but actually really dont: that is -love really knows no bounds.
My heart truely bleeds as i silently watched them say their final goodbye.
A tear drop as i saw them kissed their probably last kiss.

Silent Scream

20170521_093416

Silent Scream

when you’ve done everything,
and its never still enough.

when you look around,
and see nothing else is left.

when you blink,
and notice a little ray of hope.

then one day, when you’re gone
your silent sceams be heard
at last! !

 

The Flip

The Flip

When your world has turned
Up side down
You are left in the middle
Weary and lost
Waiting,
Wanting,
Holding,
For the next flip.
