My Pillow

September 14, 2021

  • a poem that shines a new light on something common/mundane. (Ismasura)
My limp and lifeless pillow is more than a cushion to rest my head.
It carries the dreams of my imagination and eases my troubled mind in the night. 

And when I am tired or am weak, the comfort of its warmth, holds me as tight as I will it to. 
For there are things in this world I hide from and its shielding body covers them. 
As if it were my guard, it takes the blows I couldn’t fake an enlightened expression for. 
Foreignness was never my specialty. 

And when I am enlightened by good spirits of tomorrow and can’t hold my excitement inside, I scream into my pillow to convert all of my highs. 
And during those moments, I remember that my pillow was there all the times I needed it the most. 

Who would I truly be if my pillow never wiped away my tears?
Where would I have gone if it never heard my whispered prayers before midnight?
How would I have even made it to tomorrow, if it’s presence we’re gone?
