i’m too shy to say
even putting it in writing
i can’t directly put into words
dissenting feelings not to hurt

i can’t bring out the No
to a modest and demure loner
if what i hear are words so mellow
maybe the no won’t be at the corner

“i can’t go with you now”
really it’s too hard to say
i just can’t say how
an alibi can go astray

That was…

the sound of music keeps whispering
the usual sound i chose in my ear lingering
maybe several summers have passed me
all pleasing, mellow, soft and easy


deep in my heart flowed swiftly are memories
awakening sad failures and happy victories
transporting me back into the screen of life that was
when legion of blunders have shaped and built in a canvas

if i were to relive back the time
and fix myself on those stages of growth
seriously rectified
will be the lapses and faults
only time can keep those errors in the vault…
