R.S. Mallari

Now and Not Ever


Drifting away,
You make me sway
Beyond restraint
Until down, I faint
Funny, I love it
Self-indulge, yes I am
Lost track of time

I am floating
I am soaking

I was a monk
You made me sunk
Under your palm
Served you without qualm
Even made you my Queen
My heart, your throne
We were one

I was floating
I was soaking

Suddenly, your words are poison
Injected through my veins
Paralyzing, I am in pain
Goodbye was not enough
Stabbing me with lies, rough
Everything we had,
You have denied

You disowned me
You won’t see me anymore
Not now, not ever.

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

I think the rhyme scheme really damages you here. Poems with heavy end-rhymes -- especially when it's rhyming couplets like this -- typically develop a sort of plodding pace to them, and this one does. Further, maintaining the rhyme requires you to use word choices you wouldn't otherwise pick.

This is more of a song, and those words I chose not because they rhyme but that's what I felt.

Thank you for the comment.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
