R.S. Mallari

The Only Escape


The dawn is breaking
Yet you are awake,
Mind won’t concede
With the idea of sleeping.
The bed sheet is begging mercy
Underneath your restless back,
Pillows drenched with sweat and tears.
The room is silent only sigh
Inhibited sobbing echoes
Walls are cold, offers
Unsolicited sympathy
Eyes tired of being consciously closed
Asking yourself tons of questions
Questions that tortures your sanity
Answers are hard to come by
Within your logic.
Sometimes you opt to create
An alternate reality
Within the realms of your intellect
A realm of make believe

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.
