The ways

open up the gates
unbolt the locks
unfasten the screws
let the new air navigate the naked mind
let it mingle with the other finds

put a little grease
hammer it to let loose
turn the screws left and right
read if it served your purpose
foil the way leading into a circus

smart bending of sentences
not necessarily to rhyme
unfolding a beautiful story
matters in special ways
hidden in a string of metaphors

Then you yourself begin falling like a tear

I see the unending horizon from afar
I feel the loneliness that’s far beyond
I don’t know the reason alienating the star
Why is it from me, you’re so very far ?

A line that divides the ocean from the sky
As I get closer, it runs away from my eyes
The nearer I get, the farther the horizon
When do I get warm to your distant emotion ?

I can only see the stars at night
The day seems so envious they’re out of sight
When skies are clear, you choose night to appear
Then you yourself begin falling like a tear

There’s no losing chance for a heart that waits
Time will tell when to open the gates
The far horizon and the stars at night
Into my heart they will all be tied…
