Through it I saw the real me
Turns out, it’s the figure I wanted
It reflected the brave me
Well, it’s the character I lacked
I got satisfaction in my reflection
The world saw a different image
I fine-tunned looks to my perfection
To my people it’s an ordinary picture
Foolishly I’ve lived, now I’ve learned
To carry load on my shoulder
My chest is not nearly s...

Cluelessly age we chase,
Into youth we stumbled.
Have we had life compass,
We would figure it out.
Had it been simple,
We’d have done it.
Have it been short,
We’d reached there.
Had we known where,
We would head there.
Now that we do not,
Where do we go?

The Hearts I Won Are Fragile To Carry
Don’t fall for my best
Find amusement in my worst
Then my blessings you’ll get
Don’t be attracted to my habits
Find comfort in my habitats
Then you’ll stay till forever comes
Don’t be impressed by my doings
Find interest in my traits
Then your time with me will be joyous

I am taking a detour
Down the memory lane
Revisiting places we’ve been
People I danced with
Meals we shared
Roofs we laid under
Paths we took to get here
They’re rough rocky paved routes
With well filled stinky portholes in summer
Omni directional windy-dusty air in spring
We kept clean and healthy, or tried
Icy cold stony ground in winder
We watched out fo...

When you are young
They assume you don’t know
But I know you’re powerful now
Now that you are young
They’ll say they’ve seen it all
But I know you are special
When you are young
They only see your troubles
But I know your battles
Now that you are young
They think you are irrational
But I know you are logical
When you are young

The love I hold on to is imaginary
A mere illusion that subside fear of being lonely
Vows and promises as pillars keeping it sticky
Still I cling with hope of it lasting forever
The beings I call friends are scarce
Scattered in different cities, all away
Time and distance can't shake the bond
I will hold on to you, family of choice
The home I once loved is broken...

Scars of a mother don't heal of pain
Believe me, I tell what I have seen
Worries, care and love in her single emotion
She faced trouble that run with children
More wounds in her heart than on her body
Each cut tells its own story
I may have caused her few, I'm so guilty
Despite the pain she smiles at her baby
I couldn't imagine the feel inside
I've seen her cry...

I pretend I don't feel a thing
Just to hide the true character
I pretend not to call or text
Just to get you miss me a little
Can we pretend to be more than friends
To have a pillow talk at 00:00
Can we pretend to be in a distance relationship
So we both have someone to call at 3 am
I pretend not to be into you
Just so you see me as different
I pretend to en...

A lady is polite, she is courteous
Girls have emotions, she have empathy
Short, slim, sexy, call it beauty
But it's an extremely pretty figure
Loving, respective, call it brains
But it's the most humble character
Seductive smile, soothing voice
Salamander kind of eyes, pleasing
I've seen beauty, this is a gorgeous creature
I've met her Majesty, this i...

Clearly, I'm a fool
You made me
Cluelessly, I've been blushing
You flatter me
Intriguingly, I react strangely
Your touch seduces
Confusingly, I am thoughtless
You give sensations
Basically, I am new
New to this feeling

What I want may make me happy
For how long, I don’t know
What I need could keep me stable
How strong, I don’t know
I just know there are things I want
and things I need

I took a dose, it raised the stimuli
strange feelings, but still sensations
sure I thrived, but it’s the same game
shy? No! that's for yester-hours
I hit the thicker, thinner, the sexier
no type could be in my fear, beasting
ones, twice, ain't enough with that
not forever though, the fix is pro tem
sooner or later it leaves you with you
I’ve learned to stick to me, not a...

You’ve built walls against suiters
To hide your persona
You’ve locked yourself inside
To protect your heart
I’ve made it pass the gate
I haven’t gotten through to you still
On your door I’ve knocked every evening
You pretended you ain’t heard
I guess you are still at war
With your heart and mind
Let your mind do decide
Because your heart is mine
We’ve been on di...

I thought I knew me
Until I was home alone
The secrecy in my doing
Dirtiness in my thinking
There is darkness in me
That I can only reach alone
Walking around in clothe-less sleeve
Only my birth day suit on
Hairy reflections in the mirrors, staring
Sound of soothing jams through speakers
Shaking in a way only me would know
To the tune of my favorite rhythm

It has been a long wait
With the past shaped in ups and downs
On a quest to find success and love
Pursuing endeavors leading to upper class
I grew up feeling disadvantaged
Now busy counting blessings of all sort
Family, friends, mentors, potential mistresses
Damn! So much to be grateful for
There’s no pleasure in hardship I earn bravery
Still it yields whom I’v...

I pity the painters. Shuffling side to side at various positions not knowing how much pressure can a canvas take, force a brush stick needs, proper density of color gradient that reveal a true work of art and he is still trying to perfect beauty of an imperfect piece.
I see lovers contemplating on how deep to fall when depth shields off ultra-violets of loneliness, but sudden return from the co...

Look!, there’s light out there
It should be morning
I’ve heard stories of the outland
There are wonders of all sort
Beings, beauty of all nature
You’ll see, learn and do if you go.
You should go, go out there
Just watch out for the rocks
You might trip and fall
This season rain may fall
Sun may burn as it grows
Take the umbrella. Now, go!
Don’t fear, g...

I know her, at least I think
I mean, her color is navy-blue
She would paint light-grey
I know her moods
She hides when she cries
If you know, where would she go?
I know enough to hold her
Enough from her past of course
Her paining dislocated ankles
After every game she plays
Scars that marks her body
To her they’re reminders
Reminders of her old self

I hardly believed rainbow is a living,
That stars can fall
And the sun is never moving
I was never sure if feelings could own me,
That my heart could too decide
And loving is living
I couldn’t picture me as worth loving,
That my secrets can be told
And someone can still accept me
“Until you came around”

As long as it took, I got here still
All the times, efforts, support and resources
Every restless night, cold-busy-morning, sleepy day I spent.
Gave me motivations that led me here
Every struggle, cut, blister, sweat, tear, bleed, pressure I endured
Gave me strength I needed to be here
Every advice, wisdom, lesson, experience, memory, love, prayer offered
Summoned the courage ...

I had a wall made of gold
And she melted it all
My heart is as hard as a rock
But I bet she can break it
I’ve a muscular face with dry lips
She makes me stretch them
I used to think and wish
Now I sit around and phantasize
I’m acting smart & tough here
She got the stupid of me
She’s all over my head
To you, she stays a mystery

We met as caterpillars
The ground will separate us as chrysalis
Beautiful creatures we will then emerge
You’ll be a butterfly, astonishing beauty
You’ll fly to wonder nature
When will you land?
I’ve shown you views, top and bottom
Being a living, you’re fated to be a prey
Lizards and dragonflies trying to snatch you
Far distance and away places you’ll be
Over water, l...

We’ve been here before;
suck it up,
be the man.
You’ll get more
as you grow.
with frames of pain
loaded in hard times.
You ain’t the only
nor it is the last,
but do you learn?
Yell, scream, cry…
whatever the fuck you do
don’t lose focus.
You aren’t ignored young blood
they’ve gat pressing shit to handle,

Don't go for beuty, get a keeper
Don't put it first, put it in the first
Don't follow your heart, follow your instinct
Those shoud've been the advice
The good ones don't criticize
The right time don't last long
The tough guys don't give up
Those should've been the signs
Don't dare lie, tell the truth
Don't get attached, you get hurt
Don't fall in love, you w...

Sitting on opposite sides of the breakfast table,
Yet we’re together.
Talking dirty, sharing most embarrassing stories of life,
Yet holding one another.
Fighting over a text from unknown number every time,
Yet perfect for each other.
Uncertain of how long we will live,
Yet we promised forever.
I’m a low key, no good alone,
Yet you made me a lover...

If you knew my intention,
Would you stick around?
If I asked for it,
Would you let me,
Let me hit it just once?
If you saw me falling,
Would you let me fall,
Fall in love with you?
If you felt the same,
Would you tell me about it?
If I would’ve said the words,
Would you believe,
Believe me knowing what you kno...

I have learned my lessons
Hard way or easy way, I’ve learned
Curiously or experience, they’re all lessons
Academically or life wise, dear I’ve learned
Of all educators, fathers are greater teachers
Little emotional, but you will learn
Experience is most brutal of all teachers
It will hurt, but you’ll learn, dear learn
Don’t say I am watch...

Tell them that I'm your pain
Please, just tell them
Tell them that all my doing is not in vain
Say it out loud for them to hear
Let them know that I led you here
They deserve to know that I'm in here
Running your heart, controlling your tears
Sure, I hurt you, but I've my reasons
Imagine, imagine life without my lessons
A spoiled, weak, ...

It could have been us
Celebrating 10th month’s anniversary;
Not that it’s a complaint,
But a reminder in a bragging tone.
It could have been us
Laying on a 2m hostel single bed;
Fighting for one pillow,
In a cold night of July.
It could have been us
Playing basketball Sunday evening;
On a rough outdoor court,
With rules of...
