Lighting This Candle…

I Was Alone sitting on a chair
held my head up I recited a prayer
and in a minute I remember an affair
saddened heart, I seemed drowning in the air

I remember you in that moment
smiles and laughter and a few arguments
at the brink of crying I kept myself silent
sweet promises were gone, a forbidden sacrament

I felt as if a knife was cutting up my heart
bleeding profusely and slicing it apart
yesterday’s hurt has triggered me to restart
a new leaf, a new story, a change of heart

I Am Alone, please lend me Your helping hand
I’m in a storm, give me strength to withstand
lighting this candle makes this cramped space wide
and escape from midnight where I nervously hide

when bubbles cry in the open sea
drifting day and night
wandering
new places became home
but didn’t find its destined mecca

memories float in our past
finding a place to live in our present
but time sometimes doesn’t agree
when to be noted and be obvious
and be painted in black and white

Waiting…(2)

if i have known you at the very start
when time was not meant for us
when our fates were far apart
the hunt for one was never a rush

yearning to be touched and seen
unknown and hidden from your smiles and grin
should the chances be at the bottom of my skin
waiting for the moment when to begin

and now the prophesied odds are here
waiting to be moved by you
changing patterns here and there
different colors shades and hues

maybe this is the right moment
to open this heart ajar for you
your destined lover inside you’ll see
the one you’ll pick among the few…

i know not where to start
to launch a dream in space
should i take my heart with me
to frame a name worthy of a trace

i have reached a distance so high
sailed the stormy seas and rode the tides
i never left my soul floating in the sky
waited for mornings to escape the nights

to dream the vision of my choice
was to open my eyes and just stayed focused
in the world of a thousand painful struggles
i have chosen my battles and been victorious

War

i hear the danger
i see the flames
black clouds from the grounds
writing names to blame

machines roared
buildings destroyed
a place in distress
voices in paranoid

if i am dreaming
please wake me up
let me see my own shadow
taking care of myself

i heeded my screams
my shouts of fear
the hope of survival
was drowning in tears

a war borne in despair
fearful of people near by
a man sitting on his chair
alone, lonely, living in lies

A Stranger for a while

this is not the right time
to ask me how i feel
yesterday wasn’t the moment
to ask me if it was real

moment to moment i gather
whispers i could not hear
to myself i’m still a stranger
turning laughter into tears

maybe this is me
a stranger for a while
but i’ll fill this empty heart
with lots of joy and smiles

maybe this is you
not a stranger but a friend
so look inside my heart
together we’ll find meaning at the bend

if whispers are made to touch your body
my mind will cloak the past thru all eternity
and if our hearts will beat together as one
your charm to me is second to none

if your face will flaunt a genuine smile
flowers will bloom and ignite a fire
hues of colors will spark and start to warm
cold dusts’ smell will wane ’till it’s sweet and calm

words in flight, spears in height
downwards they strike my lonely heart
tears and blood brew my days to nights
love will build war zones into sacred sites

Fear

would i fear the future
i know it is yet to come
to measure what it is to fortify
the path leading to what i will become


would i fear my present strength
of losing bulks of steam now
keeping the meaning of everyday struggle
is surviving life i’ve known how


would i fear the past
it kept what my future holds
to tread back the road i bravely took
unwinds the pains i kept to unhook

I have the…

lips that only whisper
to reveal the truth
nose that slides straight
to bridge our hearts so smooth
eyes that at times lights up
to make known to everyone
that this sincere heart
loves you and can’t be undone…
