Here are my entry challenge poems: 1. And here I am, for you, my friend. There is no world I wouldn’t bend, Reality I wouldn’t twist Just to make sure you exist… 2. I am not taking sides. I won't pull any strings. Not dancing anymore to this old-fashioned song. So don't make me decide 'cause I won't say a thing. Not fighting in this war between the wrong and wrong. 3. Failed Attempts At Nostalgia Pt I Turns out past can have strange flavor especially when past was lived by someone crazier and braver someone who dared and believed. I often crave to feel again that - the same old mist, the same old haze, I often try to swing with memories, remix the songs, replay the games. But it’s not possible so often how could we do it all again - with foes forgiven and forgotten enjoy the thrills of war and hate? And why we want to make it real and why we dream of magic spells? We could return the times, the people, but can’t go back to simpler selves. Pt 2 Turns out life can feel so breathless especially a life observed through muddy windows, broken fences with heads in wrong directions turned. Turns out friends are outlandish especially a friend not met with lives so busy, folks so selfish, with grudges held and truths unsaid. Turns out love can seem so daunting especially a love unfelt with lips so dry and hearts so guarded and minds expecting to be read. Turns out we find empty meanings and cling to voids with worthless strings, turns out letting go is easy 'cause I am not a sum of things.
