The Silence of the Night

In the Silence of the night… I see that storms don’t last forever ~
●●●

The Silence of the night
Has me feeling free
Thinking of yesterday
And all the chaos you created
I wondered each & everyday
What parts I played in it all
Yet, once I removed you
The silence came…
The peace
The quiet
The stillness of happiness
The darkness was washed away
With the rain…
Suddenly you were gone
And all my suffering went with you
In the silence of the night
I saw my life
Alone
And it is beautiful
Anyone looking in…
Can see plain as day
The chaos was always you
And I get to walk away with my head held high
As I
Was just your excuse
So what is it now…
Because now we are apart
And my sky is full of light
And the darkness left with you
In the silence of the night
Im smiling in the quiet
Spaces I call home
And storms don’t last forever
I am happy alone

Black & Blue

images

Black & Blue

The game we play

Goes back and forth

Of two people who

Make verbal stabs like daggers

Intent is only

To pierce the other

To make them bleed

To hurt, nothing else

Who have we become

We were never this way before

Once you loved me

And it was you that I adored

But now the days are different

We are black and blue today

Black when we hurt the other

Blue when we cry and bruise

This game is cruel and ugly

Its intent is to stab, burn and use

-J. Lefever

SHADOWS OF LOVE

A Poetic Duet written by A Shade of Pen and Think. Speak. Tryst
SHADOWS OF LOVE
images5
Regardless of all my efforts
You creep into my mind
I tried so hard to let you go
And all you did
Was come back even closer
I tell you that I need you
I’ve told you many times
Underneath the bridge
In the shadows of
Where our last words, we spoke
You are like a drug
That seeps inside my mind
The heroin that makes me crave
I know you can hurt me deep
and yet I need you badly
Inside, connected and deep
Your resolating wisdoms
I cherish them to keep
I have always been trapped
Underneath you, deepNothing can separate

The love that joins two different souls
In a single string, we might have more
Than a heart to beat
Yet synchronized
In harmony, they forever sing..
Forever we will find
Memories of us
Coming back to haunt
The precious corners of our minds
As we have always been trapped
Underneath our shadows

Palindromes

A Poetic Duet Written by Pieces & Think. Speak. Tryst

This is the brilliance of Neeraj, mixed with the feminine sensitivity of me, (Jen) … An emotional expression of words through the hearts & minds of a man and a woman .. Here, Neeraj explains this beautifully:

Palindromes are the words and sequences that are same while reading from backward or forward such as “madam”. Here, our palindrome will be for emotional sequence, connecting everything forming a never-ending circle of same sentiments, happening again and again. Like in this poem, every paragraph begins with same emotion the last paragraph was ended with. What you think? I would say let’s take the chance and redefine the word ‘Palindrome’ in a wider, emotional sense.
And, of course, I loved it and here it is!! Our written affair from us, to you ~ I hope you enjoy! XO
Palindromes
imagesCA2SFO2O
Smoke filled the empty room
Leaving me empty
All too soon
Here I am
Surrounded in my distractions
Cloaked in what I thought I knew
Laughing at my false interactions
And you are gone
So far from view
Gone like you were never here
Not in this world, where
I’m forced to keep myself alive
Sitting here, seeing my today
And yesterday fighting with hands
With each other
Just like we used to play
Not so long ago
Yet, long ago is where we were,
We were incredible upon the world
Two hearts, joined in one
Pieces that fell, and
Came together again…
Laughing as we, Loved endlessly
But that was then
It’s changed somehow
Somehow,
Something changed,
Altered the face of my today.
And I want to chase you back,
Want to go back
And live my yesterday…
When teasing was amusing
Not so long ago
Again the room is filling with smoke…
Leaving me empty
All too soon.

Walking Away

This is a Poetic Duet that tugs at the heart.

 Written by the talented Neeraj of Pieces, and myself of Tryst.

Walking Away

 Packed my bags I’m headed to the front door

with broken dreams and a broken heart
Once I’m gone I’m not coming back
Congratulations, we are getting apart
Isn’t this what you wanted from me were looking for?
An ending to our story, broken as we bleed
Turning to catch you, watching me go
Yet the room window was empty, like us, I know
Shrugged my shoulders. Why? I’m not sure
Took everything to this (broken) heart
Disconnected links, it’s not gonna restart
Congratulations, we are getting apart
It was once the love we had together
Welcoming & warm, like we were forever
Turning the page, you are cold & empty
What we had, I can’t even remember
Not that I wanna recall,
peel off the wounds before they could heal
“reality bites” makes sense now
‘cause throughout this nonsense we were real
Turning back to my cellophane life
Ending with you, ending this fight
Maybe tomorrow we will see the light
Walking away, without you in sight.

Ridding the Waters of Love

This week I had the lovely pleasure of writing a duet with a great friend! Shruti of A Shade of Pen & I have been writing for quite some time now … however, caught in the waves of life, it has been a while since we have joined thoughts and emotions and created poetry.
This is a Poetic Duet
Written by A Shade of Pen & Think. Speak. Tryst.
waimea-bay-shore-break-oahu-hi
“Riding the Waters of Love”
I am helpless when I see your smile
I melt into a puddle of love
As I stare at the roads ahead
I always see my steps synced with you
 
Here I stand, a forcible strength of will
Letting it all go and without hesitation
To tell you the words that ring through my soul
It is you whom I need, to have and to hold

Regardless of the storms that life will throw
I will hold your hand and bear it all
After all, it is sorrow that brightens “joy”
Just like it is you, who breathes “breath” into my life
 
We walk along the cobble stone paths
Air brushing our cheeks like summer warmth
These moments in time, with you by my side
Wash away all the rain inside of my mind …

Together we march like we have no care
Love, affection and happiness is in the air
I smile at seeing your beautiful eyes
Because in it, I see the reflection of my smile
 
Our mirror reflection in the water below
With you by my side, we will continue to grow
Only until we see the setting sun
Our time is now, things have only just begun..
 
I will sail with you to the end of times
And make you smile with silly rhymes
There is nothing that will hold me back
Together, we will grow old, hand in hand

A Poetic Duet

Together Forever

imagesCAKI0K93

Every time I think of you
I can’t help but smile
Because your sweetness dissolves
The worry that pains my eye
 
Every time I think of you
My world turns bright and colorful
Bad things just slip away
Because you are so wonderful
 
Your words melt my beating heart
As a new emotion swells up inside
Slowly, I find myself slipping away
From the tormenting ghosts of yesterday
 
As May flowers burst into bloom
I am held inside of your embrace
You keep me safe from many storms
Finding comfort that is tender and warm
 
In your shadow, I will grow
Together, we shall walk this road
Distance fails to matter anymore
When people are united from the soul
 
hands
 
When the sun sets into the sky
Another day has passed us by
Every time I think of you
I feel the love between us too

So, we will grow everyday
Time will only bring us close
Although, separated by countless miles
I feel the love of your smile
