ashen smog

ashen smog

A Poem by Pax
"

----------

"


loneliness has defined

this old soul.
Bittersweet melody
has tuned my way of 
living.

I don't know how much 
my heart could stand
the weight and wait
for that simple moment,
that single spark
to feel alive
and stop breathing
the ashen smog of reality.

"from ashen gray to ashen fields
comes, ashen smog...

do they care if I'm loved?

perhaps I'm too comfortable on my
own space and too confined to be bothered."

thank you for reading,
me...

someday, when i know i've done right
and okay, I'll compile this into a book called:
ashen...

As your note mentions, I hope you do indeed do a book about your journey. I recall you were one of my first friends here and it has been amazing to read your heart and have insight into your struggles.
Reality...now there's a word...concept...conundrum. I've heard it said that perception is reality...I am not even sure I understand that! With a heart as gentle and perceptive as yours, it would be difficult for you to live in denial of what is. Perhaps, as some say, we must just adjust our way of viewing our reality and all will be well. That is difficult when the wounds of the past are reopened time and time again and life and loves disappoint us...even worse when we disappoint ourselves.
"the weight and wait
for that simple moment,
that single spark
to feel alive" - I love how you use "weight" and "wait" here...it is a weight sometimes, perhaps always...the weight of waiting...wonderfully expressed!
I am just rambling on here as you have touched off some swirling of thoughts about life, loneliness, sadness, and hope for something that "sparks" into action. This is so good. I hope you know I always wish you well, and hope the smog will clear soon...very soon.

This poem is so me...
I am forever awaiting that spark, that shot of bliss, the unexpected windfall in my personal life. Sometimes I dread thinking that's all there is to life, this ashen smog of reality. Thanks Pax, for letting me in on me, so beautifully.

You are most welcome. Thank you for sharing your insightful words.

Reality can choke us indeed with its smog and non-clarity. We all seek answers and healthy ones so we can see the journey to completion. We want to rise like the Phoenix from the ashes of the past toa brighter future. Thank you for sharing your masterful pen...:)......................

Mauubusan ka ng topic about ashen. Joke...

This is so sad. We were born with an imperfect life. And because of such imperfection, we see how weak we are. But God is the reason why we are still standing in the middle of troubles. He makes miracles, sends us our earth angels in different personalities to guide and love us.
We just have to appreciate every little thing around us. Happiness comes from appreciation and contentment...
