Overcome, compel

Overcome, compel

The streets light up and the birds swing by,
disregarding an awaiting smile.

Scattered thoughts, woven together;
a voice that was lost for a while.

Jigsaw pieces glued together,
salvage emotions that refuse to linger.

Extinct dreams haunt, a sleepless night
Visions of the future, depend on replies.

The moody ocean, now a hostile friend.
Her muted complaints, backdrop the sky.

Retracing emotions; now unknown,
Mocking silhouettes of that wasted night.

Pulling possessions, a little closer
the blinking light, brings melancholy by.

This petrified soul of mine,
frantically searching
for a song,
all this while.
