Sudden Deaths

Sudden Deaths by Aila Bolandro

I was killed, once
Felt like the world in my hands
Like a bean sprout in a mud
A place I usually don’t hide.

I was killed, twice
Lived my childhood like a mouse
Gotta hide in the sunrise
I filled my treasure chest with cries.

I was killed, thrice
I haven’t even recognized
As if bullets are comrades
A silencer during the night sky.

I lost count with my deaths
A gigantic immortal beast inside
Devouring the peace I desperately built
Livin’ in a coffin ready to be buried.

Lost Then Wander by Aila Bolandro

With the unsteady heart and mind
İ decided to leave for a while
Look for a place to hide
A nest no one will find.

I found a place never been before
It’s quiet? I’m not sure
There are waves just like me
Seems unbothered, or I just thought it to be.

This haven turned into chaos
Didn’t know when it started
Being lost with time again
The cries are never spoken.

İt was a disaster finding this paradise
The soul wandered all the time
Seeking the light under the moonlight
Finding the shelter in the sunrise.
