wondrous nights are those upon your gaze
drawn ever deeper into your haze.

a passing thought
once more to fall short

a curtain envelopes the mind
uncovering a feeling so unkind
What if you give your all, and it's still not enough?

i still see your face when i close my eyes, as though you are still with me here. but will you tell me, is this not your greatest fear? how could you leave the world without a trace? or will our bond stay alight in place?

five-thousand strides through the greyish plain
thoughts pass through
as the green of the spring, brings a nascent smile
i keep my rhythm and ignore the pain
as i grow more weary
i leave it all behind
with each passing breath

until you were gone, completely

take a breath only to choke

there is nothing we can do
but we can only try
say it over again till it rings true
'this city will never die'
My girl is currently stuck in HK and I am counting the days until she is with me again.

lamenting paths we walk
a maze, a fork
leave me no breath to talk
lamenting paths we walk

o shoots i nourish
watch as they flourish

shout out, sky!
to where you will fly
shout out, sky!
oh my, oh my!

i love, i love
trails of a dove
for when i look above
i am here, dreaming of
