The Answer To My Question

Poem By Zak Raz

I think I know now,
My aversion and confusion,
My incomplete answers and fragments,
To this question I keep asking myself,

On the reasons why I thought
The idea of another's love for
Me and mine for the other,
Seemed so perplexing

That perhaps, I fumbled often,
In thinking that It was,
Because life was a rush,
And meant more to me, that the others love

Or because I was waiting for
The perfect one, who I would
Stumble upon unexpectedly

But what are all my fancies,
But fantasies, lies that life
Does matter to me that much
That the perfect one is only my fiction

When I know I could not be
What I promised you
I would be,
Everyday, all those years,
And betrayed you all those years,

And All those years,
You, you still loved me
Like no other can, or ever will

How could I taste another's emotion,
When I have had that inkling of yours,
That vastness of unspoken
Affection and forgiveness
Feeling what I felt, knowing what I know,
How could such a person, such a liar, pretender,
Be loved or deserved to be loved by any other.

But you, after all my imperfections, and dearth
Of mistakes, still keep loving me like no other.

Knowing such love, How can someone ask me of love,
what can I say to questions that they keep asking
When deep down, behind all the lies,
I know now the answer Is, and always will be,

The Stranger In White

Tread on the withered roads of life
Heaps of love and self sacrifice
Look around so you may meet
The Stranger in White


What fools these mortals be?
Empty shells of misery,
They love and hate, cry and weep,
yet every feeling left incomplete

What You Call Love..

What you call love,
Is an insignificant mockery,
of what it really is,


A desire,
To be approved, to be recognized,
to be held for, in a place
that brings joy to those,

The Nature Of My Kind

Time to meditate,
a place to resuscitate,
deep within this emptiness
the screaming silence that emanates,


I come knowing, knowing my fate rebound,
Wondering aloud, as I carry these boulders
these boulders that are weighing me down
I feel them creaking, tearing in me
