Poets & Poetry

I was sitting alone on the window sill
Watching the rain outside.
Tears stroked out of my eyes
Remembering the sweet moments we were together.
I feel like I’m stuck in the middle of nowhere.
And when I turn back to see you,
All I find are my footprints alone.
Like lava whooshing out of a volcano,
The feelings in me rush out
Reminding that am alone.
And every time I get that feeling,
I feel like running away from the world.
But the faith in you stops me,
Hoping that you would come back, make it all go away,
Heal the hole in the heart with your love.
Time lapses like a breeze
Seconds turn into minutes, minutes into hours,
Hours into days then weeks, months, years…
Or even for a lifetime.
But my love for you never gets extent.
