All My Certainty

Poem By John Lorenzo Javier

I stare at who you are fading away
Caught a glimpse as it follows the breeze
I satisfy myself with a gentle tear
And close my eyes as it fails to cease

But even though it was just a glimpse
I try to chase it with a strand of reality
And when I catch a single piece
I will hold on to it with all my certainty

I would put it in box where I hid my dreams
Together with the words I’ve kept unsaid
And even though it would be lost in between
Atleast I’d never think that it’s gone
And already dead

But even though it would be lost
I’ll tie it to a strand of my reality
And even though it would seem gone and lost
It will hold on with all my certainty

Comments about All My Certainty

Your poem is full of hiden meaning, a little bit enigmatic...like a hidden memory covered with a mist of time, kept inside one's memory...true, real but on the other hand elusive and distant :)

Reflection On The Wet Ground

As leaves fell from trees everlasting
Raindrops begin to pour
He took it as a rain of mercy
Fulfilling his dreams once more

Flowers

The flower that once had bloomed so bright
Colors shined with yellow and white
I watch its petals fall on the ground
So sweet and gentle, made not a sound

Grey Sky

I awoke in the midst of a deep sorrowful morn
And stared at the faint sunlight passing through the window
I looked up at the sky and saw it was grey
That wrapped me with the fear of tomorrow
