The sky blows warmth and twirls with a mixture of red and yellow
The envious sea rises from blue to sunset and reflects a sweet mellow
The land Inhales the love you gave and exhales it to all hearts like a playing cello
A warmth that grows, a reflection of love, an endless song all started with “Hello”

Sensational Love

Like children we call each other names
Play with matches and dance with the flames

If luck was a leaf then I own a garden for having you in my life
You’ll think it’s cheesy and laugh but my dear I never felt more alive

When the tide exhales and I’m about to let go
There you are pushing me up even if you’ll fall below

I thought I knew love, wasnt I part of its making?
But this sensational depth we fell in is breathtaking

Swaying with Spring

Spring my dear, never stop dancing
Clasp our hearts and let your colors flow freely
Allow your breeze to play with strands of our hair
And your petals to float around us in the air
Some wait eternity for you to share your colors
And so I’ll fail to prepare myself for the goodbye
But it is a blissful life for I have danced with spring
Even if it’s gone, with closed eyes, a smile, I’ll keep moving

Farewell My Land

The sea broke its words at shore
For it couldn’t let go of the land
Your address Id run to,
But I can’t witness your smile
For then I’ll be the sea that holds the land
Forgive my cowardliness for I am at fault
But this heart can’t bare more cracks
I whisper a goodbye from far
As I travel the waters of this earth
With thoughts of my beloved land, my love

The Depth of Love

Pen in hand, only darkness flow
Years and years were spent in snow
In one night, I said hello to a gorgeous man
Never thought you’d be part of my plan
You built an armor through crooked metal
Your heart id reach, but I must learn to wrestle
My heart was at ease when you were near
My laugh, a sound I’ve grown to hear
An ache, a longing, a wave of yearning
This pen in my hand, of love, it’s learning
Snow is melting for I have found the sun
Time to face you and your armor, I won’t run
I have yet reached the ground as the days flew
For I’m still falling into the depth of love with you
Our hearts are bare, our pulse quickens
On your heart, my strings tangles and thickens
If harm was an arrow and you were its aim
My heart id tear to shield you from the pain
After all these years, who would’ve known
I’d be loved by him and can call him my own

They spoke of the land beneath the sea
Of its beauty that equally measures of thee
My eyes search for the beautiful shades of brown
For the delicate smile of a king that is worthy of the crown
Hands that search for thy hands to grasp
For in them peace floats within and I finally at rest
The overflowed blood has dried and the wound seized to exist
For in your touch my dear, there is a remedy that I cannot resist

Sweet Serenity

In feverish nights
In ticklish fights
Where the strength of a warrior is sniffed out
In a doubtful life
In a faithful knife
Where the sanity of a girl is dimmed down

An angelic voice it was at first
Mixed with a flavor of sweetness and humor
It gradually shuts the demon’s thirst
A drug or a cure, he could be for her tumor

The sweet voice planted its seed
In a mind that was taught to bleed
It bloomed into hope, joy and shelter
Things he gave her in the shape of a sweater

When the feverish nights arrive
When the ticklish fights thrive
When her life shivers in doubt
When the knife demands to shout
That’s when she picks up the sweater
Sending out a prayer and gratitude for her shelter

Falling For The Sun

Greed grew within my rib cage
For I have fallen for the warmth of the sun
Time and distance left me with rage
For they took thee and I began to run
Shadows I followed that stole my age
Of other lands and seas I am envious from
Wishing to be part of the audience of thy stage
For within these bones and thorns are a loud drum

The Unspoken Words

If my heart had a tongue of its own
It would speak of the love that has grown
For it was fed by the hands of the pure

Of darkness & sorrow, those hands endure
Yet defeat never claimed your brave soul

Taught me that even fire can lighten a tarnished coal
A lesson of gold was given through tenderness 

That quelled the treacherous worms from existence 
If my heart had a tongue of its own

It would speak of the lover that became my home
This genial home, of you, I long to hold and rest

I dream to be a host, a nightmare it is if I remain a guest
If you sent yellow roses, in crimson color I’d paint

For I can’t just be a friend, a yellow rose that would faint
In this city, they seek the illusion of perfection

But we all have our black dots that ache for connection 
If my heart had a tongue of its own

It would speak of the fervor that pierced my bones 
For your honeyed words and benevolent actions

Were a flooded fuel that created a blazing passion 
Surrounding my heart, solid wooden trees stood as fences

But to ashes they turned and bowed leaving me defenseless 
As the luminous moon that hangs upon us turns black

The direction of the light you point, for it leaked through the crack 
If my heart had a tongue of its own

It would speak of your name carved on my stone
The stone that I cleaned then neglected

For the previous name of pain he reflected 
Your warm smile held this jagged edged blade

In a slow motion the tool embraces the stone and engraves 
A gloomy rusty stone polished by a series of tragedies 

It became a ruby with a stroke of felicity, the sweetest of remedies 
If my heart had a tongue of its own

It would declare its love to all the unknown
For my emotions twirls and hurls within the space of my heart 

Like a brush splattering its colors of love to create an art 
Within my stomach there aren’t any butterflies

But a fist sized heart that fell then shall rise 
These are the unspoken words that my heart would yell

But it has no tongue of its own, thus it pounds and swells

My Sweet Spring

Winter snuck up on me
In an avenue filled with Willow trees
Not a voice to be heard, thus I sing
For in my words, there is thee, my beautiful spring

A Failed Lover

A lover that failed to sway my heart
That failed to draw me a painting of art
So I sank in despair and collected my parts
For the one I longed for showed no regard

Your hollow passion have drove me mad
Thus I looked for another to fill the lack
With his love, he began to cover up the cracks
Broke the loneliness that I had

A mistake I drew on my skin
For you made me feel so thin
A love that had failed to win
So forgive me as I hold my sin

The Well of Desire

To fold my eyes, the crowed wrestles
But it is through my heart, my sight lies
The drops of joy I seek to fill the vessel
By the scorch of the sun it fades and dies
The emptiness of the well is deafening
Mellow sounds, I ache to pour and hear
I soak my heart in the water strengthening
For the drumming within my ribs would cheer
On the wall of foolish writers, my name is found
Through the well of desire my ink was derived
Within the dead air comes a swaying sweet sound
And thus the flickering light beneath my cage thrived
A thousand smiles, creations of the cordial joker
His value can’t be bought by lies and fiction
A foolish boy they accuse, while he wears a heart of a soldier
Observe my smile and drink from my well for they hold conviction
To my veins, the well is poison thus they fold my eyes
Yet the drumming within won’t seize to stop
The sun isn’t strong enough for the well to fade and die
Thus, I wait for the provider to claim his every drop
