A Passerby

Poem By Carmina Abrenica

Hundreds of stars shining in the sky
In a ruthless time of an innocent passerby
When suddenly a kiss of death hailed down her eyes
As the night gave her a terrible smile when tragedy befell
And fate swept away all of her dreams as well

The cruel midnight hours had stolen her youth
When the silent boulevard became her temporary booth
Had the traffic lights came to rest when nobody knew?
What a treacherous driver had ventured down the avenue
In a split second, she was cloaked in the trappings of an evil hue

The eerie glow in the sky
Vanished as she closed each of her eye
In the street, she was left wholly bruised
Her loved ones found her in a misty silhouette
Where on earth did viciousness ever triumphed? Is this what kindness begets?

Ever given the chance to let her sorrowful voice be heard
In anguish, she could have uttered how much her whole being bled
A last wave to this heartless man in a black vehicle with depravity embedded
This damsel's terrible twist of fate dawned upon her at twenty-four
If only she could bargain for another life once more

Once There Was A Friend

Here's to the friends I got along
In a time with the notion we belong
To the pages we shared for long
All ended up with a painful song

The Gesture

Your hazel eyes in luster
Enraptures my every stare
The echo of your laughter
A zephyr I listen to so rare

The Call

The pink-tinged cloud thwart the sea
Gestured hope from a promising plea
The grain of sand I felt as I walked t'wards thr shore
Tickled a wish that I may be with the one I adore

Let Me Be

Let me be your cup of coffee
You delight in every single day
Making you perpetually happy
Giving your gentle heart a sway

Thinking Of You

I think of you wherever I go
As the wind shall sweetly blow
I miss you, and we both know
My heart fonder it will grow

In The Heart Of The Sea

Our eyes sparkled
As the sea rippled
We walked hand in hand
Barefoot on the sand
