Smile that blossoms like cherry
A flower that radiates positivity
Spring brings us all sheer bliss
And wipes all our fears, our bitterness
Truly a season we’d hate to miss

Once In A Lifetime

He’s long gone yet his smell still lingers
I still feel his touch in my dreams
His fading footsteps as he walks away
I can’t open my mouth to beg him to stay
I cried a river that very day
Can’t stand looking at the doorway
My life fell apart yet he’s etched in my heart
Is this love more than lust?
The burning desire in our eyes
Our touch, it’s hotter than fire
Seventh heaven in an instant
Am I meant to love him from a distance?
He’s taken, I can’t stand a chance…

Polyamory’s been his way
Until he met a woman with iron-will
Who stole his heart and hold it dear

Indulge though this isn’t wonderland
Under the golden sun
Amidst the cool breeze we feel warm
Sharing one heartbeat, holding hands.

A heart of gold or a heart of stone?
Crossroads ahead, confused where to turn
Wisdom in each journey, one must absorb.

Fresh air that lingers within
A dose of own’s medicine
Burnt bridges, cherished things
Home for souls with shattered wings

He added color to my world that’s gray
Right then and there, I live my life his way
Can’t even move unless I hear him say…

Irresistible

behind.jpgIn your eyes all I can see
Is fading image of me
You are not what you used to be
Acting like you never once loved me
I may be wrong, but I bet
I cannot just forget
Your stare that captured my heart
Touch that brought me warmth
Smile that outshines the sun
And kisses that made me lost my mind
How could I possibly find courage
To let go of what’s really mine?

Faith Amidst Fate

Unpleasant past, burned letters
Its ashes gone with the wind
More than a decade
But the pain’s still here
Too real, too hard to conceal
Always pretend ’til I mend
And by then, myself I can convince
That we are not meant
To be lovers nor friends
But those eyes won’t disguise
Real feelings inside
Burning desire consuming your pride
I’m more than tired
Why fight what we can’t deny?
Give in even for once
Throw us a glance
Be lost in a trance
We’ll never know ’til we again try
Rare love we have found
It’s worth all the while
