Star (Remove filter)

one day i'll be a star

told you about all my hopes and dreams

I wanna be a writer and teacher,

the only things I feel like i'd be good at

you ask to see my work and I refuse to show you


a few months later I joke about how funny I am 

you say I should become a comedian

to be honest I've thought about it

why not dump all my trauma onto people and merely laugh it off?


after we broke up I t...

Amidst silence of thousand voices

Arrived a shooting star,

Gazing right at us

Proving everything destiny.

Pick me a Star

Would you pick me a star?

one of those shining far, far away

Always there when Night-time fall

please bring one home to stay


Would you pick me a star?

that one, light years away

I know it will take us forever and a day

bring it home, we can put it the jar


Would you pick me a galaxy of stars?

choose a million between Jupiter and Mars

We can sprinkle them on t...

Big Scars

she was always an enigma,

her hurts stayed in reserve,

a woman of terra incognita,

a rare mistress of swerve


its been ten years by now,

and I'm still in the dark,

tantalised out of my wits,

more blissful than a lark


for the years reveal layers

that take away my breath,

novel undug virgin strata

a world away from death


its living is her catchword,

Winter In The Sky

Steady beats the pulse of the sun

Wonder still leaps from its beams

Yet beneath a mask of bonhomie

That sad star is not what it seems


Watching its favourite run to waste

Hot tears escape that burning eye

Bound by nature to fry its offspring

Torch forests, put winter in the sky


What treasure this greedy satellite

Down the ages pillaged from space

Squandering ...

Wanna be a star

She wanted to be a star, Well known near and afar 
Someone posh in a Brand new car 
She wanted to be a star, Her fave in glossy mags 
dressed so fine, not in rags 

she never made it to be a star in her life 
She got pregnant and became a Gypsy boys wife 
Always shabby chic, kids in tow 
She wanted to be a star but Could not say NO 

She Wanted to be a Well known Star in Films on TV

Tinsel Time

T'is tinsel time when midst the grime

Of muddied minds shines ...

What can it be?

Electro-lite silver, gilding

This tarnished life of strife?

Celebrating the survival of the fittest,

The feel good factor?

Forgetting for the festive moment

The fate that awaits?


Or, could it be

The eternal light of an eternal star?

Startling joyously

Faces, who wa...

There is always one sacred moment

when the night's ink black sky

allows some personal atonement

to my dull and once-blind eye:

a single white star's icy reign,

absent in the deepest dark,

until the second that my brain

is riven by its diamond spark.

That this sheer shining crystal blazed

while hidden from my careful scan 

can only leave me dumb, amazed

that the min...

No Star Was Seen

To You who art

To me, when I see

The made star night

Looming, enfolding,

Displacing the confusion

Of maps and charts.

A darkness that is as light

As the day when

The sweat and the blood

Tasted by a dying thief

Glistened, glistened, glistened,

While the hot sky

Darkened, darkened, darkened.

No star was seen

But looming,

Falling, falling, w...

Disney Fairy


Nancy comes in my dreams 

Like a fairy of Disney Land 

Have two wings and song 

Touch hearts with no band 


Nancy comes from the moon 

Where the lovely stars shining 

Calls me to join the song 

And to share her in the dancing 


Nancy, I love you so much 

Can you call me only once? 

Don't keep me in dreams 

Just come in real to dance

Beauty Song


Don't wear contact lenses 
Your eyes are my Ocean
Let me feel your lovely senses 
And see you my Queen. 

Don't use makeup material
Just be same as you are
Rosy cheeks are really natural 
looks for me as star.

Don't cut your shiny hair 
I love it to become so long 
Set free your hair to air 
And let me enjoy the song.

I am Certain

In every city, I go.

In every country, I have been.

The Star and the Cross hope,

That he will be with us one day.


They call him by different names,

And claim him as theirs.

Both preaching similar faiths,

Both saying they are correct.


One says he is yet to come,

While the other hopes for him again.

One says he is the son of God,

While the other says, he wi...

Bright Star


She sat beside me and I was drawn into her orbit-

as if on a collision course.

A satellite, a meteorite, a dust particle,

an insignificant entity - magnetised.

She was my Sun and I, her worshiper.

She warmed me and I basked in her.

Her innocence masked her true potential,

her true identity.

If only she knew what she had done,

what she was capable of,

Believe In Your Star


Live…Breathe…Believe in your star…

It is with you wherever you are,

It never leaves you for a moment,

The saint light is in its current.


In storms it helps to reach the land,

Its warmth it gives to you my friend,

It cherish you and gives you strength,

It leads you through the whole life length.


It lights up your soul when it pains,

It bright...

Waiting For A Star To Fall


Diamonds strewn across black velvet sky

Starfish scattered along the shore

Star shaped maple leaves flutter and fly

Star flakes of snow in the winter's roar

I miss you so much wherever you are

All I ever wanted was to be your

Once-upon-a-time, a barman worshipped the Sun.

Worked nights so didn’t see much of it

but in his head he’d got stories of

the Fire God supreme,

Blaze Lord,

vanquishing monsters who'd eat out your dreams.


He called the Sun ‘Hero’,

believed it had six pairs of arms,

giant wings of flame

and the handsomest nose in the galaxy.

Made moons blush

and g...

Srebrenica - Сребреница


Will humanity ever learn? Europes worst war crime since World War II brought home the fact that its not just Cambodia and distant places where massacres occur, but anywhere that there is hate.

This time the Serb units in the area were in the wrong. Courts rules the Serb state as it was and is was not responsible. Last time it was...
