Ghosts of Uncertainties-Villanelle (Voices in My Head)


there are shadows over me
creeping through my brain
why won’t they let me be?

had enough of these entities
I ran, I hide, still they remain
there are shadows over me

prisoner of uncertainty
they've locked me in chain
why won’t they let me be?

drag by unseen enemies
tied to a runaway train
there are shadows over me

illusions, perhaps they may be
I have fought, always in vain
why won’t they let me be?

free me from this misery
somebody, take away the pain
there are shadows over me
why won’t they let me be?

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.
