There is an unfamiliar face
I can’t seem to recall
in these faded photographs.
I am in this place
but upon seeing all
a memory that slipped from my grasp.

There is a smile I try to chase
and even if it left a printed trace,
it seems time has kept it from my soul.
Who knows with pain, can be effaced,
what was once mine, there is no more.

Perhaps she feels things way too deeply,
        when words bleed over her mouth
        and tears stream down her eyes,
        why does her soul still feel heavy?

Perhaps she was too needy
        that whenever she loves,
        she makes them her sanctuary.

        But a haven is only momentary
        because if it wasn’t,
        why is she with nary a company?

tragedies – an heir to all
the mess inside those walls
i can still recall

lunged in anger, seized with fear
oh, what have you done
i tried to leave the thoughts behind
but i couldn't run

black silhouettes, tragic memories
now i'm in constant doubt
am i ready for this?

The sky –  a beautiful, lively, breathtaking, and
once an expressive vault of heaven
is now filled with melancholy;
an overwhelming feeling of sadness
mixed with uncertainty.

I like to think some people are like that,
amazing and extraordinary
– yet uncertain of many things.

I spend a lot of time inside my head. Sometimes, I am in the beautiful places of green and a pleasant dream of teas and butterflies. Most of the time, however, I find myself gradually disappear into the darkest places. Alone on a ride to another nightmare. A street without the city lights. The sky without its pretty colors, just a bunch of clouds filled with sorrows, with tears. It's like a world that has gone insane with me slowly losing my mind.

I wander through the narrowest places of my mind, sometimes a little too much. Is this life or a never-ending cycle of nightmares?

Lately, I have been spending a lot of time inside my head. No, it wasn't my choice. I couldn't find a way out of this terrible nightmare. Please wake me up.

They say is as old as time
Sooner we’ll both be old enough
To figure all this rhyme.

After it’s all wasted and gone
The chances you stumbled upon
You said wait — now you missed the prime.

Of bliss and pastel sky
Connected souls, I wonder why
You wander, I said goodbye.

Post meridiem, under the stars
You were my wish and you wished I was
But the stars too, have strayed, away from us.

Darling let me ask you, have you ever been lost in life? Have you ever questioned your whole existence? You don’t know what you’re doing, and you just go with the flow, most of the time? It has always been like this for me, four years to be exact.

I don’t know what I want to do and what I really want to be. They always say I’m still young and that I’ll figure it out, but time is always running and if I can’t keep up with it, I don’t know where I’ll go anymore. I don’t want to keep running for the rest of my life, unsure of all the unfamiliar places. Where do I belong? Am I not capable of certain things?
