Random Poem:


Rain fell on the paved footpath
It was a bittersweet way to a start.
Silences hang so heavy on me
I'm not sure if you saw,
as lately I've felt them more lightly.
Shadowing presence,
behaviour extrinsic,
I often wonder if you recall
these little things held so dear,
or think about me at all.
Allow one to see the you truly,
let drift the veil and masquerades,
at least let me keep which I have found
in of late.
To have just caught a glimpse out of hand slight,
you are the best actor not on stage; So am I.
Walls will fall down in time
(Though exist purely so)
Like falling sunbeams
which filter through trees
"komorebi I will always remember"
Because of me.
