To the melancholic

By Kuro Seijaku Published about a year ago 1 min read




The rain shows no sign of leaving

Recompense for lazy summers

Today day feels like any other.

The strength to keep on left me so long ago. Yet here I stand, my presence demands that I tread on though alone. Along empty streets there’s no one to greet yet homes all around, where then are we? With places to go and nobody home.

The water’s kiss freezes to the bone, it’s touch is beyond compare. To chill one’s heart to begin unlike all else, this is where it would start.

The rain




I walk a brisk pace that feels so relieving, the cars that pass can’t know this bliss. We all seem though to move and dismiss, these little things, tiny tortures aplenty that we all ignore obfuscate clarity.

Parody’s rarity no longer prevails, it is without impact thus pales to compare it to the real, as deserts do try. You’re standing still yet we wish you would fly. This is the world so noisey and new, nosey, bemused where nothing is new.

Contemplating is where we’ve been stuck; to hide in contentment. It calls us to rush, hence, why flight does capture the mind. Enraptured in fascination do we find, how things as they are one day will not be. Things fall apart after all don’t you see?

When this is done we must hold tight to all, keep memories close as they love to call. Perchance reminisce in moments like this.




In bliss.
