Lost In Silence

My soul sinks deep out like a ship,
a sole shepherd without his sheep,
silence of the lamb in friendship,
your absence's killing me softly!

Gang gang to bang bang! SOS:
Save Or Shoot, save me.
I can still hear you calling me everyday I pray for u and me.

Strong enough to take the heat
but why should I live without u
when u bring the sunshine with u,
even if I ain't gonna be with u.

What's love gotta do with it?
When we're friends and best at it.

We cave in the audacity of hope
to Hide Our Pain Everyday.
Though I'd survive in any way
and I would not cry by the way,
I wish you'd change your way
back to the real you, my best friend.

I miss my friend, my best friend,
not just a friend, MY best friend!


(Written in February, 2014 reflecting on the allusions and betrayals in friendship.)

EMTSBA III is a man who has 9 lives and lives like a cat; for three he fights, for three he laughs, for three he writes! He has the writing reflex, or so they say. His early formative years spent travelling different countries, living in a multilingual household and growing up among a dozen of other languages and nationalities, diversity in culture will later influence his interest in Personal Development, Community Outreach and Social Commentary. That journey took him through 3 continents and over 50 cities exploring to understand the Human Paradox (The title of his weekly Radio show). ***Follow @TheWritingReflex on Instagram and Twitter.*** more…
