Eternal Sunset, Empty Eyeballs

The feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd - The longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible; nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been; regret over not being someone else; dissatisfaction with the world’s existence. All these half-tones of the soul’s consciousness create in us a painful landscape, an eternal sunset of what we are.”
Fernando Pessoa

So empty these eyeballs I see
Dry of imaginations mysteries
Do they feel what I feel?
Plain truth lives deceits

Audience do they seek in me
To witness some silent speech
Far off can they heave?
Into vastness of eternities

Empty eyeballs
Eyeballs emptied

Life Evolves, Memories Not

The past beats inside me like a second heart.
John Banville, The Sea

Good times, when they are gone
Leave a sweet taste behind
Alive still, still in my heart
Like a story in rewind

Collapsed bridge long back
Gone days never come back
Little of me still attached
Those voices and sounds
Little of me still cares
If things are still around

Fossilized memories
Unwashed imprints
They remain, always
A good kind of pain

World is in flux
Always changing
Life evolves
Memories not.

Why Drown This Wilderness ?

In my errant life I roamed to learn the secrets of women and men, of gods and dreams. I lived in wealth and poverty, in fame and calamity. I saw every country of our world, I lived a thousand lives. Many lives I spent, other lives I squandered, for in my life I never traveled, all I did was wander.
Roman Payne

Why drown?
this wilderness
lives inside
so patiently
this emptiness
Why let go ?
of all these

What connection so strong?
Why let go?

Why walk?
on this highland
all of inside
runs constantly
this eagerness
Why not hold on ?
to all these

There's so much to see
Why stop and rest and be not free?
