all the wonders of the world.
Barry Pietrantonio

I want to experience, with you,
all the wonders of the world.
I know you don't believe it's true,
but love comes and goes, unheard.

I want to take you far away,
to place we can be free.
We can go or we can stay,
there's no set place for you and me.

You and I, we are invincible,
no one can break the bond we've made.
I know it's against all rules and principles,
but we haven't come this far to fade away.

I know that we think love is forever,
but I know that you'll fade away.
I won't cry, I won't complain,
I completely understand,
I'll just leave at your command.

if love's the prize, that rain into my world?

Amongst the trees that standing still, I found you as the fruitful one
Amidst the flock above me here, I saw you as an angel, dear
Within the feelings I've to protect, the one for you is like a sun
Between us two, there's lot of pain that I have chosen to bear

But what is pain if love's the prize, that rain into my world?
The rain is sun, and sun is rain which I always want to hold...

A scribble...

I stare at the bowl, that quiet peaceful bowl,
pouring in the cereal, and then the milk
just at the right moment to prevent sogginess.
Snap, crackle,
pop, pop, pop
go automatic weapons in the streets,
silence, and then boom
goes the sound of a shutting cupboard as I retrieve a spoon
while a car bomb evaporates lives in an instant.
Crying children, mourning mothers, and confused bystanders
conveying their thoughts to reporters
through a screen I will merely stare at.
They must move on with their lives,
swallowing their tragedies,
while I can’t swallow
the sogginess
of some goddamn cereal.

The world through her eyes
Apr 2      Apr 3

The world through her eyes
Was full of objects, events
Half of which she'd never care about
And the other half
Would never care about her.

The world through her eyes was
Monochrome, black and white.
Everyday the same painful,
Torturous routine called life.

The world through her eyes
Was colourful, too.
Filled with a rainbow of personalities and characters
She would never become.

The world through her emerald green eyes.

Everything was beautiful, fascinating,
Other than herself.

Hello World
Hello World
Dec 5, 2012

I like you.

I like the gold in your eyes,
The solidity behind your stare,
Soft, but knowing,
I like every strand of hair.

I like that you speak to me,
I like your sentences, phrases and words,
I like how you string them together so delicately,
Like a melody waiting to be heard.

I like our small talk,
Even if it’s cheap,
I like our conversations in class,
And how I think of you as I begin to sleep.

I love your voice,
How you say my name like a dream,
I love all of your truths,
And every smile in between.

So take all of my likes,
Put them in the palm of your hands,
Let’s spread them out-
Let us make a plan:

I can’t promise you much,
But I can promise you this,
I won’t try to steal away a heart,
But I might steal a kiss.

I just want to add that this isn't entirely mine, I changed what I wanted to fit my feelings. Thanks for reading :)
Your wings dormant in this world
Mar 12

Open up your little soul
Feel vulnerable to the bitter cold
A dark cave may keep you safe
But even the finest mines run out of gold
Let it go
For you were born to fly
Your wings dormant in this world
You must show you can survive
so your majestic wings may then unfurl

moonlight fair
heart so pure
true to lure
easy to become a target

He sold the world
Apr 5      Apr 5

Once upon a time,
There was a man with no soul
He wandered into darkness
And locked the door
The key was lost to reasons,
enslaved in his heart
Caressing the morbid season
He walked too far
With no sign of life,
Calmness engulfed his eyes
Everything he ever touched
Always withered and died
Everyone he once knew,
Now were gone
Didn't knew who he was
Nor where he was from
Memories filled his despair
Of a time unknown
Where he belonged
Walls of a broken home
Death loomed the surface,
Of the night he dwelled
Dig out his pain,
In the pit where he fell
Comfort of sorrow
Now engulfed his heart
It felt like rain,
Knew not what these tears are
Embraced his fate
Chewed out his scars
Where he lies,
In the wake of stars
Stuck in his vision,
Of a dream he once had
Whenever he wakes
Everything goes black
And he's left in confusion,
Of what these years mean
Time never was a friend
Wouldn't let him dream,
Now he's empty
Every moment is cold
Moon is his silver
And sun is his cursed gold
Who he is,
Not even the mirror knows
Broken and cracked
His reflection outsold
Bleeding his nightmares
In the sea of his disguise
He swims in darkness
In the caress of the night

Once upon a time,
There was a man
Made deal with the devil,
Evil- he didn't understand
Sang on the crossroad
The song of hate,
With words of sorrow
Devil did wake
Thirst for blood
Made him blind
In the rules of hell,
His soul was bind
The deed was done
And morrow was gone
Upon the crossroad
He stood alone
With evil in his heart,
He made his way
Devil was gone,
But a ghost did stay
Claws of madness
Now griped his heart
He sold the world
And watched it fall apart

Once upon a time,
There was child in pain
He was different
And for some insane
He was quite
And he was deranged
They said he was the devil
With evil in his name
He was lonely
And he was lost
Reached out to the world
But they left him to rot
He knew about love,
It tasted bitter then hate
He watched them sleep,
To never wake
He made his way
To the land god forsaked
The world sold him,
To be the devils bait
And the devil grinned
He said,
"Be careful what you wish for
Or what you create"

Once upon a time,
A weight was borne
In depth of hell
A soul was born
He knew not of love,
Or the god they claimed
He knew not of hate,
Or the devil they blamed
For they were gods themselves
Ruling from their thrones
Fist of iron
And a heart of stone
In the onset of a nightmare
He was grown,
Smoke covered the sky
And the sun never shone
He was sold in hate,
All he had ever known
The man who sold the world
Was a god- one of their own

Fragile people can never thrive in a world we all abide,
Apr 7

Fragile people can never thrive in a world we all abide,
We swept up the past, hid it with pride and
Wanted only the best to survive.
