Poem by O. Alisha


Insane Bard

More time to stand and stare

Lovely lunatic loaded with mysterious

The need for something, but

gain nothing,

What I need…

Neither happiness nor sorrows.

I need something, something

from you, from her, from them, from the whole universe

The pity soul,

Not get something,

sometime nothing, sometimes anything.

No more darkness,

No more arguments,

No more tears,

No more emptiness.

Sinking inside myself

Begin to search,

Move into myself,

in the oceans of thoughts,

desires, dreams, difficulties….

I am swimming, to find something

I want.

Seeking something in the midst of chaos

Achieving nothing.

The thirst of quest, not allow to move back

What am I searching?

Do you know?

Like the full bloom crimson delonix

saved in the autumn wind,

I am penancing on the tip

of the dense peak, with frozen legs.

Failed in the search of something

Achieved Nothing

That is enough, for this insane bard.

The quest of something,

Sometimes nothing

Sometime everything

never end,

Never, Ever end at all.
