Moments

Written by: Dima N.

In a moment of peace, 
I wondered, I hoped the pain will cease

Drowning in confusion, I sought comprehension 
Is it a Reality or an illusion?

As a virulent cancer, the past gnawed me ruthlessly
I think back on the days of purity & sincerity. 

With anguish, I doubt every word, every touch, every glance…
Now, I wander through the days and nights as if in a trance…

For a moment of peace & truth, I crave
Regardless of the pain, I forgot and forgave…

Again, my mind agrees & my heart denies.
Forever, I will remain in this chaos of lies 

The difference is now I’m aware of the mask within 
Oh Universe, let the pretensions begin…
