Prelude to a Disappearance

"Refuge" - Tagaytay, 10 March 2015
“Refuge” – Tagaytay, 10 March 2015

lips sealed

for once

as i

go

into hiding;

enforced seclusion

from all

that is

familiar

from all

that just

hurts.

 

you hide

what you

feel

and get

called

a cold

fish;

wear your

heart

on your

sleeve

and people

think

the worst

of you;

a no-win

situation

setting one

for a

fall.

 

and you

know not

where you

stand:

signals mixed,

head

messed up,

dizzy

with the

swirling

whirling

dervishes

within.

 

we live

in a

time

when nobody

says just

yes,

says just

no;

everyone has

a motive,

a modus –

ulterior

or otherwise –

and even

those

whose reasons

are pure,

are free

of taint

are accused

of harbouring

agendas

nefarious

ominous

filled with

malice.

 

if even

the most

innocent

motives are

questioned,

then i

see

no point

in carrying

on;

but i

hold my

tongue,

keep my

silence

waiting for

it to

kill me

and end

my pain.
