Happiness

In the distance,

I see you with blinding hope,

Not knowing if you are a mirage,

Or if I will ever reach you. 

Amongst the darkness, 

I keep walking towards you,

A flickering light calling my name,

The promise of a silver lining.

It's autumn.
Leaves are falling to the ground,
And I am falling for you.

Fade Away

Lover,

 

It's been countless days since you left me,

And I know that… 

 

Like seashells dancing in the ocean

the tide that brought you in,

Came back and swept you away. 

 

Like clouds drifting in the sky, 

The wind that carried you in, 

Carried you past me and far away.

 

But it is the touch of time Lover,

The same hands of the clock that brought us togeth...

Thunderstorm

He was electric, vibrant,

always painting his dreams on the clouds,

then tearing them down with the rain. 

 

She was centered, living in the core of the ground,

Keeping the whole world together,

Staring up at the sky wishing she could fly up some day.

 

They were always looking for each other,

attracted like magnets, bound to collide,

The whole world expectantly waiti...

Sanctuary

Heart drumming I wake up in the dark. 

Fresh memories of old ghosts that haunted my past,

vanish when I see you.

 

You make me feel safe. 

Your love chases the ghosts of my past away.

And on that fateful night when I was broken, and I cried even when I couldn't breathe, 

you held me tight, 

you held me tight.

 

Honey, I am not the kind of girl who wins the lottery,

Ours

You gave me pictures of us,

they slowly faded in their frames. 

 

You gifted me flowers

And time wilted them away.

 

The youth of our bodies

Was tainted by the touch of years.

 

But our love my dear,

Our love was golden.

Strengthened by each moment, each second, each year 

we shared and made ours.

City Eyes

Concrete faces

Open their eyelids

And I take a look inside

Into a life that is not my own.

City life

I Once Made Sadness My Home

I once made her my home.

I would go there every day.

I memorized the cracks on the walls, 

The shadows dancing around flickering lights, 

The water leaking through the floor.

I took a walk through haunted hallways where I hung portraits of childhood wounds,

memories of past heartbreaks, 

mementos of loss and regret.

 

But like a child who outgrows her clothes

I no lon...

Pressure

I carry a kettle in my head

And I'm turning up the heat.

Turning up the pressure,

self doubt, and insecurities.

 

Tumultuous clouds forming 

High tension that won't subside.

I'm the one who's created 

the storm raging inside.

Disappointment

I'm disappointed with life

Yet, I know it owes me nothing. 

I got the shorter end of the stick and there's no one to blame for it.

I fight for my own happiness 

But I am constantly being thrown out of the ring. 

Life owes me nothing.

Life owes no one a thing.

There's no one else to blame for my disappointment,

For dreams can't be shattered if you don't dare to dream.

She Could Be Anything

She could be anything...

 

So she wore dresses made up of pictures,

to feel she was wearing the world.

And got a tattoo of the moon in her ear,

like it was solely created to decorate her.

 

She chose to pull down the sun

to paint her hair with its shine.

And colored her lips with flowers,

to always look like spring.

 

She wore stars in her eyes,

for her to al...

Tragedy

Some people are a tragedy.

A walking, ticking bomb.

They go around drinking, inhaling poison,

Sucking in life,

Breathing out pain.

Inside My Head

You,

the mean voice inside my head,

a monster tormenting me.

You are lurking in the darkness,

waiting for the moments when I'm weak.

When I am feeling down,

that's when you speak. 

Won't you stop?

You scream,

you shout, 

you fight, 

for some peace.

And I keep telling myself

just breathe...

just breathe...

just breathe...

Hide the Evidence of the Crime Scene

Darling, you hide the evidence of the crime scene,

where there once existed love. 

You break the love letters, burn down the memories, 

and bury them deep down in lies.

 

Yet, we all know it's you who is to blame for the body, 

that rests cold and lifeless inside.

So hide the evidence, hide it for good,

but you'll never forget where this love once stood.

Expiration Date

If only it was that simple.

I'm at the supermarket,

Looking at a can's expiration date,

And I can't help but to think that in reality,

Life does not work out that way.

 

If only I knew the date of expiration,

The amount of time before the disintegration,

Of life,

Of love.

The Adventures of Mr. Crab

entry picture

This is just a little fun poem to start the week. Happy monday!

 

Mr. Crab,

has quite a busy day,

but he dropped by to visit.

For long he couldn't stay. 

 

Go on Mr. Crab, go back to the sea,

it is with your family that you have to be.

Not one, or two, or even three,

its six little crabs that you oversee.

 

So go on Mr. Crab, be on your way.

Thanks for the vi...

Have You Ever? (Holding On to You)

Have you ever felt your heart aching?
For me those were my dreams,
pounding the walls of my heart,
screaming for me to go back to you.

You Won’t Come Back to Me This Time

You walk to the door and I’m just sitting here,

Second guessing myself.

I see you are moving on. I fear,

I’ll be the dusty book in the back of your shelf.

                                                               

You open the door and I’m just laying here,

Doubting if my decision was right.

I know I was the one who let you go my dear,

But I thought you’d be the one wh...

I'll Walk Away, But I Won't Go That Far

I walk into the room and I see a thunderstorm coming

Because I see you’re angry and you know I’m there.

You start shooting at me your spiteful words

And I start crying, but you don’t really care.

 

I walk out knowing you’re the bad guy of this movie,

But you’re so good at putting up a pity show.

It is always the excuse of what you’ve been through

When you say you’re sorry f...

I Am the Person You Will Always Forget

I am the name that crossed your lips

Without meaning, without thought.

I am the person you will always forget.

 

I am the face your eyes once saw.

They passed me by, but never lingered.

I am the person you will always forget.

 

I am the distant voice calling your name.

You are unreachable and I am unheard.

I am the person you will always forget.

 

I am the perso...
