Gifts From The Present

Poem By Pamuditha Zen Anjana

One day, one night and on another light
in a singular life or maybe through a circle of ‘em
danced distant memories, cherished and valued
and beyond the lurking horizons and borders
there waited I, expecting you…

Understood the uneven pattern of life
while waiting for the miracles to happen
seasons passed by and the times changed
a single boat, one with two mindsets
sailed through the seas, all seven of ‘em

Manipulated the real-time, the sanity
Into fantasy and the amazed cried
'O' Sire! Let us be thy servants
to work with and for thee, to build
the new world we all want'

Swished my hand I, for they needed to
go away from me, as my heart, my soul
was elsewhere, swimming deep in thoughts
already making plans with images of you
blurred, but sharp as needles, needless to say

Blinked suddenly, the nearest light source
signaling your arrival or departure, depends!
Never knew I, for in the next split second
my own alterations blinded and deafened me
froze me, unable to move, yet able to feel…

Destiny

What if everything you ever wanted
throughout all your lifetime, beckons
and falls right in front of your feet
like stars fall to earth from heavens

Far Away

I was feeling more than okay
until up to that darn day
Not even a single grey cloud
was blocking my minds way

Unnamed Love

The Gloom,
I wandered through
screamed at me
like a wolf adoring

Rebirth

I was alone,
rusting in heaven...
blinded by illusions of love.
bound with chains of hope.

Godspeed

With a hollow heart
I followed you to the moon
and back
with a flash

Ordo Ab Chao!

Arise! whilst feeding on the ultimatum,
the wrath of the unsatisfied, looking up at what’s not humane
through the veils of light, Oh! Let thy kingdom begone!
Turn to dust, and then fly off with unresolved fears
