Gerunds on a Sunday

Hunyo 18, 2012

As I wreck the solitude of my being

with my spirit’s attempts at singing

the words that would convey the feeling

of a heart that resists its beating,

I have finally gone to concluding

that it is silly how this waiting

and my episodes of trying

had never been convincing.

And I have come close to accepting

that the thought of you reciprocating

is nothing more than wishful thinking-

a dream that shall not be existing

for it has not received heaven’s blessing.

But still I find myself praying

to any god who might be listening

for drops of eternity to grace my living

because born out of this major longing

is a need to explain why a lifetime of hurting

seems a million times better than just dying.
