Party For Two

I can give you a copy of my world
and a copy of the key to its gates.
I can make the night pass easier
if we are naked in dubstep
and no sound can resonate in the heart of a happy being.
Otherwise we like to suffocate in void,
listening to rhythms that express no emotions,
nothingness is still a form of contemplation.

In the emotionless music in which we became dull like some kind of lovers
or some kind of weakness made us look swooned
(because of the sun)
there’s a Siren song
which calls to reverie, the reverie which lures the dying ones to die, you say it
like you discovered the essence of the soul.
It is erotic to watch your sluggish lips moving.

I don’t want you to pass through the Valley of the Shadows of Death
alone,
you’ll be another man.
Go halfway and return!
Don’t you ever leave me, you say,
and our young skins may be seen now.

Life

It’s so loud inside my head with the words I should’ve said,
You only know what you want to, or only what I want you to?
But that’s okay, words only bleed
And
These pages are the battlefield
For all the things said and all things not
And all things done and all things not
And all things chosen and all things not
And all things thought and all things not
And all things loved and all things not
And all things not will win the battle
But I’m hoping
All things else will win the war.

Life In General

One day you’re born, one day you die
And ev’rything inbetween’s called life
You grow old tryna be yourself
In a world where you’re supposed to be someone else
But no one ever tells you how to find
That elusive thing called peace of mind
So you run for what they say is right
With weary legs and blinded sight

So walk the well-worn path of man
And solve the riddle if you can
Piece the puzzle, pay the price
Learn how not to roll the dice
They tell you what you have to be
But all you have to be is free

Yes, walk the ancient path of man
And try your best to understand
Why society wants your square peg soul
To fit into its neat round hole
They tell you what you have to do
But all you have to do is be you

Walk the well-worn path of man
And try your best to understand
Just why we’re filled up full of lies
Like dirty social compromise
They tell you what you have to be
But all you have to be is free

Youth Awareness

This land was a garden of crops and greens
but now an urban with light that gleams;
It’s good to be modern but not against nature
It’s good to have shelter but why not behave mature ?
There are no visions of cattle neither do birds sing
There are always buzzing of horns making the head swing.
The society is full of greed and hate ones
People are always upto harming if get a chance;
But now there needs a change which we must make it
If one stands then there will be helping hands numbered indefinite
We must wash away hatred and jealousy:
And fill this world with love and greenery.

Me

Can you see me
Can anyone see me
That scared girl that’s tired of being so strong for everyone
That sensitive woman who takes so much to heart
That woman who wants to be taken care of for once
The one who wants to just let it all go
That girl who falls in love so easily and so fiercely
That lady who hides her heart behind her sarcastic blunt mouth
That woman who puts her babies to bed to sit and cry over the day alone
That woman who keeps so much of her struggles to herself
That woman that is dying to be held to be loved by someone
That woman who just wants to be beautiful in someone else’s eyes
Do you see me, do you see that woman standing in front of you
I just want someone to see all of me

A Broken Heart

When we were together
What could break our hearts?
Only the loss of each other
Would then make us part.

For years we loved with a zeal
Only broken by one’s demise,
For love is eternal
A instrument in tune
Never to vanish
Lest it go dissonant.

What should I then expect?
On this road ahead,
Only hardship did I fear
For sickness to her ill
And left her body here
Her soul out of reach
From my calling heart.

The zeal I had will never fade
It stays in my heart
Til’ on the day I part from this earth
And reunite with who I lost
But til’ I do I stay here lost
Drowning in tears,
From a broken heart.

Ten Reasons We Love You

1 For the love you have shown us through out the years
2 For all the times we’ve cried and you wiped away the tears
3 For holding our hands all those times we were afraid
4 For putting us back on the right path when ever we strayed
5 For all that you gave up so that we wouldn’t go without
6 For all the times you held back when you wanted to shout
7 For the kindness in you’re touch that we always felt
8 For keeping us together no matter what in life you were dealt
9 For showing us the right path on which we must trod
10 But most of all Mom we love you for teaching us about God
