A Solitary Slumber




Solitude engulfed me; one raining, gloomy night
A deep sadness that resurfaced, a feeling I chose to hide

I have no one else to talk to, those I know are taking rest
I just curled up and lie face down, as I try to suppress this…

In soliloquy, I express thoughts that linger
And unearth the feelings that have been interred.

“Life’s unfair…” I whispered low, as tears trickled down my cheeks…
“I’m tired of being hampered; I should yield from being meek.”

Things unknown, things that matter, things that often affect my life
I’m afraid on who to tell ‘bout these things running in mind

In soliloquy, I express thoughts that linger
And unearth the feelings that have been interred.

So I converse with myself, for who knows me more than me
And if my friends fail to hear, who else would listen as I weep?

“Close your eyes,” I told myself, “turn your thoughts to happy things…”
“Rest is waiting, for your weary soul, at the calm brook of your dreams.”

In soliloquy, I express thoughts that linger
And unearth the feelings that have been interred.
 
“Cease from thinking,” I told myself, “…of good and bad things to weigh,”
“Another night already passed, this moment is another day.”

And Sleep did visit me, just in time, when daybreak is nigh,
While in my head a song was playing… it was a soothing lullaby.

Rain brings about several unsolicited and most of the time, lonely thoughts.

Nate said...

@GB: true that! :( as the rustling sound of raindrops reverberates, it amplifies lonely thoughts and sad feelings.. so i talk to myself.. i guess i'm a nutcase.. :P

ang husay naman, nkkhiya tuloy ang mga entries ko ahahaha :-)

Nate said...

@kuya solt: aww... na-touch naman ako.. that, coming from my 4th Muse, means a lot... thanks! :)

wala pa ring tatalo sa posts mo.. it takes a lot of guts to be able to blog like you do.. and you've come far.. ako, i'm a newbie.. so medyo guilty ako dun sa part na sinabi mo na "write to impress" *ok enough with that*

pero, di nmn sayo applicable ang "solitary slumber.." kc may fiancee ka nmn na kasabay matulog.. sa mga may loneliness factor lang yan na kinakausap ang sarili.. hehehe! :P

but if ever, you'd feel alone, listless, at di makatulog, you can quote me:

“Close your eyes,” I told myself, “turn your thoughts to happy things…”
“Rest is waiting, for your weary soul, at the calm brook of your dreams.”
