Quick Sand

We are nothing, but lost.

In the beautiful meadows,

grasping for air,

Scared and scattered.

Waiting for help.

 

Lying on the ground.

Counting the stars,

trying to sleep.

Surrounded by doubt.

We thrive to live on

 

In search for love.

Someone to hear,

the silence that consumes us.

Waiting for the quick sand

to be the concrete as we dream of.

 

Tired of the lies that surround us.

Tired of the bloody hypocrisy.

Tired of being clueless of who we are,

making sense of our actions.

We keep breathing on.

 

Balancing between

the need to be social.

And the urge to be alone.

Choosing white vs black,

then accepting the greyness,

accepting our imperfections.

 

Trembling hands and distraught mind.

Watery eyes and flowy nose.

Settled brain and a burning heart.

A desire for lust and a need for love.

We fumble a bit, learning a bit.

Surviving most of it.

 

The imbalance imprinted in our souls.

The rhythms jumbled up.

The sound cracking down.

The pipes bursting out.

Is how I would describe my life,

how will you?

  1. Your poem the rhythm within is so amazing. It is beautifully written. Maybe we can relate to each others poem, we maybe different but at the end of the day the experiences remain the same.

  2. This was just wow!!! ๐Ÿ‘Œ Like reading my own feelings summarized so perfectly by someone else!! I could relate to each and every line…each one of it!! So true and poignant!!! Written from the heart …hard to select any fav lines as all of them are…but below are the two most hard hitting ones:

    โ€˜In search for love.
    Someone to hear,
    the silence that consumes us.
    Waiting for the quick sand
    to be the concrete as we dream of.โ€™

    โ€˜Balancing between
    the need to be social.
    And the urge to be alone.
    Choosing white vs black,
    then accepting the greyness,
    accepting our imperfections.โ€™
