Leafless

IMG_90191

 

Felt like fall when you went away

Couldn’t stop praying you’ll come back this way

Then all the other seasons passed

I knew our roads would never cross again

All I have are memories kept inside a jar

And an open heart for a new-found love

Like a leafless tree

I stand my ground

Firm

Waiting

Until someone waters me to life again

 

HOPE in Visual Poetry

Hope

Artwork by Vivalanat
Words by Joyce Aralar

At times I feel like drowning
There was nothing left to do
But to catch one last breath
And hope I can survive for a minute

Another minute, an hour, days, or even months
I prayed hard that someone
Will see me asking for help
And extend a hand
To save me from the mess I have created
As demons of my own continues to haunt me
But no one did
As I was about to completely surrender
I saw a tiny flicker of light, turned into fire
A blinding contrast of orange and yellow that seemed to burn my being
Hesitant at first, I forced to open my eyes

He was there
GOD was there

Flashbacks and realizations hit me all at once
I knew then I am the only one
Who can fight my own demons
See the true light
With His complete guidance

hope you guys like it and this artwork is proudly done on Illustrator CS6

Sunburned

20130218_093438

After a three straight days of being under the sun
My skin feels so hot like the freshly toasted buns

The once white and smooth skin
Turned into tan, far from being satin

Now it’s peeling and my skin feels stretched from within
More like my soul is being renewed from all that has been

Remnants of a broken hourglass

Broken-hourglass

I love  you

And the smell of your skin under the sheets

God knows how much I am willing to trade everything

Just to touch your face for one last time

 

I confess and I won’t play safe

You make me feel so alive

You cut me into pieces and digs me up like no one else

 

As the sands inside the hourglass falls slowly

Though we keep ourselves coated with lie

Your love

among all, is still divine

Longings and letting go

image

Longing for someone is like the sunset

You want the sun to just be in the horizon for it looks so beautiful

Then again, even time cannot stop that

Slowly it will go down

Darkness will come and replace the orangey shade of the sky

Just like a hand, drifting away from your grip

No matter how hard is to let go

It is the best thing to do

For once it’s dark and you are all alone

The moon will shine and stars will cry with you
