A Spark Doused

A Spark Doused

A Poem by Katherine Enma Pineapple

Is it funny that...
I want to stop believing in the beautiful sunsets
That used to glitter my eyes
Making be whisper
Life is really beautiful?

Is it funny that...
The glow in my eyes slowly dies
Slowly refusing myself to the lights
In the dark, only I saw
Dim might they be?

Is it funny that...
A child like me saw the world pretty
No matter how ugly it might be
A child like me sees the world ugly
No matter how pretty it might be

Is it funny that...
The hand that clung to hopes
Hopes everyone mocked
Finally got tired
Of the bruises it gained when it held on?

Is it funny that...
The optimistic fire that raged inside me
That burned even through the storms
Is dead

It's a sad sad day when somebody finally kills the fire in a hopeful's heart

it's not funny at all, it's reality!
I find it ironic that every time we put more firewood to our optimistic life, there will always someone or somthing will put the fire out... but that doesn't mean we choose to give up, we keep on firing it up for its a choice for us to survive...

amazing piece little sis...
miss you....
see you soon!

There really are people like that and perhaps, sometimes, it makes you believe the fire really died... read more

awww thank you kuya~

Mild depression gets to me sometimes ;)
phenomenal piece of work here...

the philosophical questions raised as youth grows up and finds life to be a bust..the cynical attitude, the jaded adult wonders where that youthful hope disappeared..

nice wording.
