Back Again and Might Drift Again

gloomy mysterious tree silhouette

Your embrace used to be so tight
That comforts me through the cold night
Your smile used to be so sweet
In my darkest hours served as my light

You are my world and you know it
But every time I look in your eyes
Pain is all I can feel in my heart
Truth is I can almost smell all the lies

I want to let go and set you free
Just like what I did months ago
But I can’t imagine, there is no “we”
After all that we’ve been through

We drifted apart and had been reunited
I miss the warmth of your embrace
But the union is somewhat one-sided
I can feel your cold breath on my face

All I ask now is just a little more time
Stay awhile, until my old self I could find
And maybe we can rekindle the flame
So we don’t have to say goodbye, once again

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.

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