You glistened like gold
When I first saw you
I was elated
T'was as if I had found a pirates treasure

You brought with you high promises
So high that even you were unable to reach it
You pursued me to help you for your own
selfish needs
Yet you failed to observe I was a smoldering piece of coal
Almost burnt-out
Burning yourself to brighten someone else

Even the damaged and broken
Need to breathe

I became the water that quenched his thirst
Unbeknown to me - his lips were poison

Just because I'm not like you - doesn't make me strange
I may be wired differently but definitely not deranged
I am a glow worm emitting a light when I'm at my best
But for that to come into sight I need my antisocial rest
I blend in like a chameleon when I'm in a crowd
But feel a reckless need to leave when the voices get too loud
Makes me feel like an addict in need of narcotics
Though I'm perfectly normal I get looked upon as psychotic
Just because I'm not like you - doesn't make me strange
I am a normal human being - definitely not insane
I connect with people that are non judgemental
Their place in my life is definitely instrumental
If I don't like you - you'd be sure to know
Coz I ain't the type to put on a show
We all have different personalities. We should accept it instead of making judgments about a person

O traveller, O dear wonderer
You have walked this gravelled road barefoot
Pierced by these jaggered stones
Leaving behind your coloured marks like a carefully decorated poem
Your legs wish to give up, your eyes wish to shut
But the voice in your head says don't give up
You need to keep walking - keep walking you say?
How much longer till I can end this journey?
How much longer till I find my way?
This voice pushes on rentlessly without a care to spare
Yet all I want is to break free from this shackles that bound me
How is this even fair?
We all need the strength and courage to go on and pursue what we want

How much do I love thee you may ask?
I love thee with all that I am - it ain't a farce
I love thee by being unapologetically me
I love thee because it sets me free
I love thee with a flame that burns so bright
A flame that could rob the day of light
A flame that only thou can ignite
A flame that can withstand any fight
I love thee with all of my heart
Even at the times when we're apart
Just coz I love you

Countless stars fill up the night sky
They sparkle just to brighten it
Seeing it makes me wish I could fly
But I'm afraid that I'll just trip

The sky and stars cannot survive without each other
They complement each other in a marvelous way
Their relationship is just like ours, we make each other better
We know that together we will stay

You are my night sky, I am your star
I shall burn to give you light
Whatever you do, wherever you are
I'll be your beacon shinning ever so bright
Special relationships and priceless

— The End —
