Ephemeral

Poem By Carmina Abrenica

Spilling out like sentences as thoughts rippled
Waves of sadness washed all over me
A terrible twist of fate it ought to be
A tragic soul had stolen the life of my entire body

As the sun faded behind the ribbon of white clouds
The oceans crashed revealing lifeless pleas
And the bitter wind took away moments seized
The stones of hope hid beneath the surface of the roaring sea

The garish celestine illuminated a heart of scarlet in a seige
With a whirlwind of exploitable weakness beseiged
As the ground lay quiet, a clangor of unrelenting weeps echoed
The trees swayed bringing ephemeral uncertainties in a place of abode

As I walked along the shores with my feet kissing the sand
The inseparable breeze and wind played melody in my empty hand
Despite the blind glimpse of the freedom I had rarely known
In silence, life will sweetly whisper what this tragic soul has endured alone.

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
