An empty schedule

Wandering in an empty schedule,
no plans to stop, not even one;
to swim through hours and days,
calls in a long yawn.
Emptiness floods over monthly calendar,
broken arrows shoot across uniformized boxes;
notes and markings are preys,
caged soul hunts after, desperately.
Was once caged by books and papers,
shaking the paper bars like a thrashed slave;
encircled with rings of eraser dust,
and howled, for an hour of peace.
Sitting side by side with peace now,
boredom invades steps by steps, till no rooms left;
rapid knocks are heard, from hollowness,
louder and heavier everytime it knocks.
Tension in the air tightens,
stretching to its rupture point;
there's nowhere else to hide,
to camouflage the fear of loneliness.
Prayers remain unanswered, sunken;
bubbles of disorderly thoughts emerge,
depressing oneself back into,
the old empty schedule.
Note: I guess this piece pretty much explained why i don't blog as frequent as I did before.

Nooo?¿?? "Alpargatas" are the tipical shoe of the peasants. It's rare to see young people wearing them but, in my opinion, they are a super cool accessorie!!!!!!!!!!

Amazing photos as always!

No music. I adore this post, all the photos are very pretty, and kinda lonely but in a good way.

i love your use of words so so so much (:
1. Any changes on the layout or design of the blog you would like to see? (e.g header, background, texts, colours, etc.)- i really like the layout a lot. i was just actually admiring your heading- its very interesting (:

2. Do you wish to read more variety of posts except mainly poetry?- i like your blog so much because its different than other blogs. i love reading your poetry, and you seem to find the best photos to match!

3. Do you prefer any music in this blog?- i think music would distract me from your poetry. i get distracted quite easily, hah, so listening to music would only make me half pay attention especially since its poetry and its so interesting and in depth already (:

I love the poem! So sad, but so beautiful.
The only suggestion I can make is maybe make the pictures smaller? Other than that, you're doing fine, hun :)

Jenna said...

1. NO. Perfect already =]

2. Well I think that is really up to you. It's your blog. But the poetry is really lovely.

3. I always enjoy finding new music. Even though I have music on my blog, I find it a little annoying sometimes on other's blogs. But if you find something you want to put on, go for it!

That's all I can think of. =]

Sorry, I can't think of anything to make your blog better, I think it is perfect as it is:) However I think a change now and then is always good!

Valentine said...

hi dear! first off, happy blog-niversary! ;-) As for your questions, I actually like the simple theme of the blog and the header/banner is just gorgeous.. but change is always good so if you feel like it, do as you want. :-)

For content.. I adore your poetry so dont remove that! hehe..

another thing i love about your writing;
you can interpret it many ways but it always means something to ev'ry person that hits the mark on a feeling they're familiar with
and happy anniversary! (to you and your blog)
may you keep amaze-ing us for many anniversaries to come ;-)
(i could not write it as 'amazing' cause it might turn out as an adjective so i invented a word)

Clarity said...

Congratulations on your first year. Your comments are always so bright on my posts and I appreciate it.

I can't think of anything to say or add except, my favourite photos on here are the ones of delicate mystery, less is more pics rather than the shock ones. I especially like the one you posted on your first anniversary. You have an eye for beauty and a mind for truth.

Peace, x

Summer said...
