Love at first sight
Gives you a right
To cross the street with eyes shut wide
For having fun
Just to hand in hand come undone
Chest light with glee
Give smiles for free
On your affection's spending spree
For each sweet crime
You find a rhyme
Your only judge remains the time

Midnight paints the whole world black
Angel's wings as well as lies
You get all in one pack
That my restless hand supplies
Warm avalanche of my hair
Curtain to make vision blur
Forbids audience to stare
At where secrets now allure
You stay quiet, baby, hush
Just surrender to my lips
Tonight there's no need to rush
When I hold on to your hips
From my tongue slip wordless rhymes
Let them slide across your skin
I'll taste you a thousand times
From your thighs up to your chin
Although sometimes I am rough
And my nature makes me tease
Of that you can't get enough
Moan with pain, then sigh with ease
When you suffer, I carress
To relieve the aching need
That you so sweetly confess
So I'll give you what you plead

Reach through the bubble
Orbits of shooting stars
Too flawless to be real
Those perfect circles suffocate
Crush the dormant fear
Memories of tomorrow drip down oh so loud
In a world where corners have not been invented
You're standing in your tears of joy
Or maybe it's another boy
Who offers you a scared gaze
From the mirror
Do you still wish truth's voice to sound clearer?
Blisters And BlissBlisters And BlissBlisters And Bliss in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Though city lights show pavement gleaming
In hidden corners tears are streaming
A broken heart to purify
Heretic thoughts tempt righteous falling
While sin viciously keeps on strolling
Some twisted truth to testify
Each day new hand the old replaces
And soon the crowd counts thousand faces
All of them turned the other way
Who is to blame for rage tormenting
That seems to never be relenting,
Dreams those don't make it through the day?
Though world's dark shadows keep deceiving
To save yourself don't stop believing
In word that carved in gold stays plain
And like an angel's wing defending
Brings bliss, hope and peace neverending
Love makes sun shine despite the rain

Ubiquitous sense of failure
Drills holes into what was soul
Content, tranquil waterfall
That swallowed both ships and sailors
Moments of true pain brought panic
An acute need to restore
What once was, will be no more
Blurs the simplest truth's reflex
Leaving blistered faith perplexed
For false prophet's recognition
Arrows wasted on star chasing
Just bare hands for self-defense
Sinner's zeal's the most immense
Eye-corners with wrinkles gracing

On plaster of my skin
Your curves upon mine tilted
About to commit sin
Room enveloped by darkness
Only your pale skin shines
As you cover my bareness
Arms become clinging vines
If my body is temple
Then may you be my priest
You, boy who's lips now tremble
Inside him roaring beast
So let your prayers tender
Now echo in my ears
To your sword I surrender
Quench thirst with virgin tears
Gathered in silken goblet
Yearn's my reason for crying
Get drunk with every droplet
Of boiling holy wine
I feel your pillars harden
Right after they touch ground
Exploring secret garden
For treasures to be found
Be careful with tongue drawing
An illegible map
Of pure snow that you're thawing
In country of my lap
That river harsh might drown you
Or make you hide in cave
Where warriors drop their armour
And master becomes slave

When lonely wind keeps weeping
I pray for love to find you sleeping
Here by my side
One time after another
First like my lover

Oh, flower marked with summer's warmest scent
Can't you see how your fate with mine does blend?
To perish upon your petals I crave
This world for me hasn't a sweeter grave

In each and every blushing rose
There lies a promise dormant
So know that I'm blooming for you, just in all secrecy
The Magnolia TreeThe Magnolia TreeThe Magnolia Tree in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Two hummingbirds with thirsty beaks
And with lust for life so to speak
Both abandoned their peaceful creek
To go world's beauty see
To freedom they were meant to fly
And dive into depths of the sky
They've dreamed but of getting up high
One of those two was me
They danced and sang in light of day
With soft clouds little claws did play
I wished they wouldn't go astray
But some dreams don't come true
When fell down thick shadows of night
They lost each other off the sight
And then began my lonesome fight
My journey without you
Through storms I flew, in coldest rain
Tormented by most cruel pain
The fear that I will not again
Sleep beneath wings of thee
Just one thing I had on my mind
Which helped me leave worries behind
You promised me that we would find
A magnolia tree
You said in land too far away
There was this place for us to stay
Where gentle breeze makes flowers sway
And lovers share their smiles
Up in the branches we would nest
Our life should be all very best

As a child, I enjoyed making orange smiles,

I admired the way skirts became birds,
picked up by the wind they adored,
while sheets grabbed the wind like a sail,
and the clouds were always made of cotton,
and the denim sat like lead.
Now every time I put myself out to dry,
the sky gets heavy and breaks on me.
I am halfway towards being ready,
and then the rain rips me down again.
Maybe that's why we bought a machine
to wring the water from our clothes,
because there was no risk of bad weather inside.

Yet that idea doesn't sound creepy at all
Instead it seems quite normal
Because I've already been there before
This will mark my 8th time and counting
And they think it will help me now?

Locking you away in her soul
Where all of the lies linger
Once she has done the job
Of playing the tease
The real games begin
Where she will have you begging on your knees
Her dirty tricks
Will make you long for her lust and affection
Which she will give until she captures another soul
And then you will have to face the music of rejection

With a smirk upon his face
And lets out an evil laugh
As he watches you die
A slow and painful death
Under his tightened rough grasp
And devilishly evil pair of eyes
He drags you around
By a pair of strings
Attached to your arms and legs
Pulling them sharply
To remind you that he's the boss
And you're his puppet slave
Till the end of eternity
He finds cruel enjoyment
Out of seeing you suffer
He's hungry for cash
And willing to do whatever it takes
To get his hands upon it
Even if that means using you wrongly
Until your final breath
He believes he is the master of all puppets
Able to enslave any soul
And get them to do his every wish and command
But he will soon find out he was wrong
When his world comes crashing down around him
As his puppet slave gets the better of his evil ways
And breaks free from the strings of death

It's okay to not be okay
Nobody is perfect
In the end we are all human
Just stay true to yourself

Because all that really matters
Is being who you really are
