R.S. Mallari

One of Those Nights

Warm summer night
Sweat on my forehead
Cold drink at hand
Staring on a blank sheet
Scouring for words

Digging deeper
The more I get lost
My muse must have slept
Inspiration out of sight
Not a line coming out

What if I just sleep?
And turn off this notepad
Maybe in the morning
Ideas will flood
And my muse awaken

Now I am sure
Just click shut down
And then the screen
Will flicker
Until it turn black….

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 agree with Sam. It's a wonderful discovery when you can still express nothingness meaningfully.

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