When the Sun no Longer Shines

Cynara cardunculus - dried flower heads

How can I face the morning happy?
when the sun no longer shines on me
how can I smile and laugh at night?
when I can no longer bask in the moonlight

the salty breeze begins to crack my skin
my sweet fairy gone with the wind
every bit of her radiance hidden
I am left soaking in the acid rain

when will the flowers bloom?
or forever shall be only gloom
will there be a time for monsoon?
or forever shall be drought on land

paradise that used to be so good
now with purplish tears flooded
please let it not be the end of love
but be the start of a great story be told

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.
