"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

To Be Or Not To Be?


Empty (bones)
crystalized (star)dust
bits of mo(ve)ment and fracture
a skeleton of past and loss
inhabited by phantom questions.
Only you give sense to all this.
I am.
Should I not be?
What would remain (of) me
without your love?

  2. I was a little confused by the parenthesis in the middle of the writing, but otherwise I liked it.

    • The parenthesis was meant to give more meanings to the poem (if you read the word without the letters in the parenthesis it’s a different word. It was just an idea of giving it multiple meaning.
      Many thanks Ermilia. 🙂

      It was just a thought that came in my mind as I wrote the poem.
