Angel of the Night,
Embrace me with your wings
Wipe my boundless tears
And quench my flaming soul
Detach me from life,
Thrust me into your heart
And fill me with the anguish
Of the soulless stillness of your heart
Free me from destruction
From the turmoil I battle
From the inferno devouring
My sanity, my soul
Release me into the void,
Clothe me with your feathers
To conceal my sorrow –
Hiding my scars beneath your shadows
On Angel, my Love
Pull me into your darkness
So that my mind becomes your own
And my soul, a portion of your being.
An interesting analysis on the relevance of History in International Relations. As a student of law, I wholly agree with the author’s insights.
Love is the sun shining in the sky,
The birds chirping in the brink of morn,
The leaves rustling against the cool breeze,
The trail of footprints on the trimmed lawn
The scent of bacon and tulips lingering in the air
The china glass clinking in synchronized melody
The piles of baby socks littered in the doorway
The deck of cards scattered on the dining table
The cigarette ash tray infused with a heavy scent
The sound of your laughter ringing inside the house
The warmth of your hands inside my own
And your name written on my heart
Always and Forever
Nothing feels more mentally agonizing and rueful than the feeling of loneliness. I’ve walked throughout the twenty years of my life with it, bearing it like a stone covered beneath my heart. One of the very first feelings I felt as a child was of being lonely.
It was the feeling of being abandoned when I waited for my grandfather to pick me up after everyone else have left school for their home. It was the strong bulging pain in my throat when my parents boarded the plane without me. It was the betrayal I felt after being forgotten by a friend I trusted and valued so much. It was being excluded in everything people did and everywhere people went to. It was of being distant and oblivious to the chaos of 3 am parties, alcohol and teenage sex. It was the high school cafeteria thrumming with laughter and shouts and I, sitting alone at the corner of the library, as I silently observe.
It was the feeling of entering into a world I was a stranger to, a harsh perilous place I was yet to get accustomed to. It was longing the presence of my loved ones when all there stood before me was the darkness and the cold, brooding emptiness.
It was missing those good yet short memories that passed by, which have left me now in the abysmal circle of void and confusion. It was missing my old self, longing to return to a past that’ll never come back.
But time moves forward and I had no option but to follow its obscure path.
Loneliness was I, in a world that was so full of people but where I still felt like a pathless wanderer, moving from home to home, like a soul with no body.
