like a snail

like a snail

you retreated

back into your shell

you realize

that nature

are sometimes

incomprehensible

they hold no mercy

under the sweltering heat

when  provoked

in face of rain

or trampled upon

you withdrew

ever so subtly

because you love peace

you retreated

in the hope

that comfort & consolation

may come to you

you withdrew

without realising that

many a time

others like you

just get crushed..

.

.

.

your tears are beautiful

your tears are beautiful

stains impudent

to a bad day

.

your tears are beautiful

being misunderstood

losing your grip

.

today I see your tears

vulnerability exudes

longing shoved

.

tomorrow I see no tears

life beautifys

determination won

.

.

.

quiet desperation

calmly

we hover

through our days

in quiet desperation

.

yet

the wind

that echoes through the hillocks

blows of inherency

.

how long still

will we need

to wade through the bulrushes

on our own

.

before we are conjoined

before our friends

before our loved ones

before God

.

I cling

to that thought

I hunger

for that acceptance

.

yet

we still linger

through our nights

in quiet desperation

.

.
