Driving Away

Day 76

When long stretches of empty roads begin to unwind

You secretly wish the journey never comes to an end.

All that surrounds are lush green trees,

Under the overcast skies.

Colourful bougainvillea leaves,

a book and a friend for company.

Emotional Struggle

Tears of blood

Etching my soul, carving my being

Overwhelming feelings consume me

Deep-rooted in misery, dreams of the past ruin me. 

An ocean of emotional overflow

Words of poetry breed the beast in me

The fight against forsakenness will soon end

Till then the path towards solace continues.
