Would Like To Go Away From Here
Why is this loneliness getting hold of me
Squeezing my mind to a dot?
Ugly voices shred my heart into pieces
Words are for me falling short;
I am beginning to love silence
As if it’s my sweet paramour;
The dancing of waves I loathe to see
Rather I would like to sleep on the shore;
The stars are fading in the horizon
The moon just a pale disk;
I jump no more into fiery activities
Have lost zeal to take any risk;
Clouds disturb my peace, howling
Loud from over my head;
I’m at peace with this cruel world
Though I look dejected and sad;
Is it you the reason
Whom I lost in the prime of my youth?
Or something else that I miss in life
I just can’t find out the truth.
I do not like you to come to me
And weep for missing me in your life
I do not have a heart big enough
To shelter you for much sorrow and strife
I wish this silence always remains with me
I do not like to sing, laugh, clap or dance;
Let me pour down all my thoughts on paper
Before, I go to sleep on other side of the fence.
