R.S. Mallari

Last Kiss of Faith (Surrender to Depression)


Abysmal silence, black dense wall of stone
Not a sound only palpitating heartbeat
Pitch black, eyes won’t serve any purpose
Slippery, treacherous rough way beneath

Purplish tears begin to drop like April rain
Resonance of incense breathing, tedious
Odor of decaying will poisons the brain
Reasons slip away as hope swiftly gush

Paralyzing, knees slowly losing the strength
Becoming one with those who have been
All those who trembled and succumbed
Those who lost the fight, the will to go on

One final kiss on the pendant, softly and done
Heart gone frozen, the last beat, final sound

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.
