#631 — Contentment;

Drown me,
In the waters,
Of the Lake Ubari —
Let me live my life for just one
Moment.

#contentment

#626 — Restlessness;

Enough
It is for you,
That he lives in your heart —
Say it then to his restless days,
And nights.

#622 — Rogue;

The rogue,
Who stole my heart,
Parts my eyelids and peeps,
Only to laugh at me and run,
Again.

#616 — Shame;

Lo, this shameless vessel,
Fashioned out of one handful,
Of scattered clay,
Ooze its fill of puff and hubris —
Yet, held in the embrace,
of its naked reality,
It trembles and crumbles,
To dust, in utter disgrace.

#615 — Stranger;

Again,
O rain filled cloud,
You stranger to my shore —
Drench me and I shall spawn your wings,
With pearls.
