Poetry Thursday (My week 15.0)

Fading and faded

by Khalil A. Cassimally

Everywhere I look
I see people shaken and sad
Because they are ridiculed, mocked and laughed at
And I see the sun
Fading, just a bit.

At the circus, under the tents
The clown is no more cheered
He cries now
The world has changed and clowns represent sadness
And I see the sun
Fading, just a bit more.

The sun no longers cares
Why give light and warmth
To people who feed on sadness?

The heavens fall upon the earth
Everyone looks up
Angels sweep around them all
And yet, people run away yelling
And I see the stars
Fading, just a bit.

And I see the stars
Fading, just a bit
And I see the sun
Fading, just a bit
Fading and fading
Just a bit.

The notion of the good and the bad
Are fruits of greater minds
While we see sadness
As the catalyst to joy.

And no wonder the stars move away
And no wonder the sun is ashamed
What we have become
Is not what we were destined to be.

And I see the stars
Fading, just a bit
And I see the sun
Fading, just a bit
Fading and fading
Just a bit
Until they disappear
In darkness,
Darkness being a better place
Than here.

Fading and faded
Forever and ever again.

Note:

  • My poems are becoming much more like lyrics… which is kind of cool to a certain extent.
  • Check out Poetry Thursday and cry your heart out every Thursdays. The concept is simple: share poetry on your blog.
