The Beggar – Entry for Eugi’s Weekly prompt (Nov. 25,2021)

______________


finding himself with eyes pleading
lying everywhere with no place to go
on pavements cold as the morning snow
resting his soul living with sad memories aglow

different colors walking through him
slippers and shoes made no difference
he watched them move inside of him
no one felt what his hands were begging

he prayed hard that compassion would grow wings
to fly over and shower him not with earthly things
but LOVE is all he needs and everything will follow
to a soul like him a little kindness people will bestow

you don’t see it but he has his thoughts running
if you could hear his heart and read his mind, saying
my brain has too many tabs open” swarming his mind
could somebody close one tab by being kind?

too many questions seeking too many answers
without shelter, it’s a survival to the fittest
how is he going to pass the days in serious hunger
the beggar, a part of society’s essential fiber.

Life’s a Sea of Risks…

navigating at a certain speed
cruising fast to overtake the sun
peeping as the horizon bleeds
trying to catch up before it’s gone

like a man desiring for her love
he needs some quick response to win her heart
in the twilight of life he needs to rise above
life’s a sea of risks, chances can tear them apart…

it’s raining again
all my pillows are drenched in pain
in my bedroom, in the kitchen
my thoughts are raining in chain

bring all the clouds down
so i can see the sun again
and in the night of my hurting
i can see the moon passing
running in my dreams

just touch me
just feel my skin
and i’ll be raining again
with LOVE, with LOVE

catch me warm with your embrace
kiss my lips, make me ablaze
strip me bare and celebrate
in time the rain will fall again with LOVE…

If you won’t come…

Tonight, as I close my eyes
i’ll forget about my fears
i’ll send them to the clouds
and let the rains fall as tears

And when the morning comes
i’ll let the flowers bloom
to its brightest colors
and drive away my gloom

I’ve been missing you
for sometime my love
I will be at the entrance door
to give my heartfelt welcome kiss

But if you won’t come
to be back in my embrace
i’ll give you back the flowers
and a cup of my tears…

____________________
the meaning of being lost
in a world of fantasy
it’s not a secret anymore
’cause there’s love between you and me

i did it all before
to be in a place so heavenly
i hide it all alone
in illusions and imaginations

now i know that there’s love
in a pretending lonely heart
now i know that your heart beats mine
not in fantasy anymore

days are brighter now than ever
the light has shone on a stormy weather
now i couldn’t build the castles in the air
your love has been and always be fair …

I offered my tears…

it was heavy

the burden,

the load i carried



my knees were shaking

as if to break

into pieces



and i felt her from the sun

and touched her final warmth

embracing her all over



sadness wasn’t overran

after i shed some precious tears

it happened as i feared my own fears



i heard my cries and sobs

as i ran my hands over my eyes

she bade her last goodbye of goodbyes



“I offered my tears to You

I collected them with my palms

I beg You to bring back my wife’s life…”
