I wanna save that lightMore Like This
Have you ever felt like you failed on someone? You failed to notice or understand their problems, their pain, their loneliness...
Well, I guess you are lucky if you never felt anything like this. Or maybe if you did feel that you will understand this sensation of being stupidly oblivious.
It has been two years I passed from high school to college and things have been fairly good. Loads of work, responsibility and other affairs aside, things have been flowing smoothly according to what I planned. Thank GOD I don't have to deal with delinquents and others of the sort in college anymore, after all if you want to succeed as a businessman you have to take things seriously. Of course there are a few troublesome ones, but nothing I haven't managed to avoid.
In the beginning of this week, when my third year of college started, Ace called me to tell he managed to pass on the entrance exams for medicine and was accepted in a fairly good college. We agreed we, the former Student Council, should m
Hopeless RomanticI desire to reveal to you the lovely things I see,More Like This
The beauty and the goodness and how much you mean to me,
I want to craft for you a mirror built within my eyes,
Framed with azure irises that never tell a lie.
I wish my words to reach you in your broken, little heart,
And mend the wounds you've suffered that tore your world apart,
I yearn to paint a picture with the visions in my head,
Daydreams for a paint wheel and a brush of things unsaid.
These little boons I wish for whenever there's a chance,
First star tonight, a matching time, a genie in a lamp,
The tiny wishes comfort me, though they remain ungranted,
For only one wish doth exist to the true Hopeless Romantic.
LifeWhen I was young they told me I could do anything,More Like This
They told me if I set my mind to it, that I could be great.
I told them: “Okay, I want to never grow up,
I’ll sit here and chill on this sweet sippy-cup.”
Twenty odd years later they tell me I need a job,
I tell them I don't need a job I just need someone to rob,
They tell me stealing is wrong and I shouldn’t do it to live,
So I ask them what they have upon their naive person to give.
The officer who cuffed me asked me why I would steal,
Such a nice kid from the suburbs shouldn’t struggle for meals,
I told him, “they said I could do anything when I was a kid,
a falsehood so sweet I could hardly resist.”
He asked me what could drive me to becoming a thief,
“Well, sir, my life is built of nothing but grief.
they told me when I was a kid that I’d be the nuts,
but all I ever really wanted was to never grow up.
Black CatA black cat crossed my path today,More Like This
And I could feel luck swing my way,
A funny thing the twists of fate,
The subtle change throughout the day,
A whiff of something on the breeze,
That stirs nostalgic memories,
Stolen kisses in the spring,
Silly wishes, promise rings,
Musty castles far away,
The scents that lead my heart astray.
A black cat crossed my path today,
The sunshine stirred my heart awake,
Feelings faded with the years,
From youthful bliss and wishes dear,
A desperate dream that clung to life,
Tinged quite slightly with contrite.
Petals FallingA cursed flower counts the days,More Like This
That love has passed me by,
I count the petals endlessly,
Awaiting there to die.
Each petal's fall a knell of death,
Translated into beauty,
A fate accursed placed on my back,
And styled as a duty.
Duty weighs so heavily,
And death is but a feather,
Yet the mountain rests atop my back,
A burden I must weather.
The flower's final petal makes its most fluid decent,
The crushing weight replaced by a feather's elegance.
