I always find myself mesmerized by the smallest of things.
The eternal song of nightingale.
The intoxicating aroma of jasmine.
The tiny raindrop on the edge of your eye.
I wish you were here tonight.
To hold me.
To share my breath.
I wish you were here tonight,
instead of this merciless memory.
There will be a moment, when you will try to weight the time.
You will count the remaining grains of sand in your hourglass like spare coins in your pocket.
Then, and only then, you will understand that you are in debt.

The Ferryman always gets what is his.

I don't know what to
say other than
god ******,
I've got space for you,
the keys in the lock and
you don't even need to knock
I'll be waiting.

So please,
please make room for me
because I've never felt
so beautiful as when
you took the word and
translated it into
a hundred thousand
gestures and
and precious memories.

My wallpaper's
torn right through
but I can stick it back
if only you give me the

You don't have to
keep on living in
broken homes.

So just let me
try and fix the
one we made.
Not my best but oh well
I need someone to tell me
everything will be alright
