Mirage

ghost-girl-on-bridge-pb1

Felt it was
Thought it was
But…it wasn’t

I saw you, so close to me
Your lips next to mine
But when the amber’s gone
You vanished

The cinder is my only salvation
But it has now turned to ashes
And the wind has blown away the flicker of my hope

Unthinkable…otherwise
it could have been
The sweetest of things

It was…
or so I thought
But never was…never should be
My only chance now to kiss those lips
Are in my dreams

Everything so perfect
Or so I thought
But everything is nothing…but a mirage

 

About M.A.D. LIGAYA

Teacher-Writer-Lifelong Learner I have three passions - teaching, writing, and learning. I am a Filipino currently residing and teaching in South Korea. I blog and vlog the things I write. I have two websites and two YouTube channels where I publish my works in my areas of interest. I also use Wattpad and Pinterest to publish my creative works. I am into research as well. Some of my articles were presented at conferences and published in indexed-journals. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
