I was never this vulnerable before,
with the increasing exposure
I feel it all the time
So coward and not confident at all.
The changes occured in these few years
have boosted up my lingering fears.
The world has changed,
while I'm still the same.
what have you been through they ask
after read my poem

because the words able to
opened up their wounds
just like the first time

and they're wonder
if I have been through the same thing too.
we shares same pain
"All the stuff in our veins is the same." Guy Garvey.

Some stuff is the same.

First school,
Graduation

First pet,
Grief

First bicycle,
Grazes

First kiss,
Heartbreak

Some stuff is only yours and makes you.
Listening to Elbows new album on the way to work.  Guy Garvey is a poet.
Do you feel the same?
Like I am became.
Do you see the same?
Do you see me everywhere, in the corner, on the table, under chair.
Do you feel the same?
Like blood is streaming very fast inside the vein.
Do you hear the same?
Do you hear my voice is whispering your name?
Do you feel it, do you feel the same?
Do you feel this warmth is slowly flowing down to abdomen?
Do you feel it, do you feel the same?
Do you hear it, do you see it?
You was stuck inside my brain. Can you hear me? Do you feel the same?
Why do ask a love from someone?
Who cannot love like you can?
Be with some similar like you one?

the voices change
but my love
beats the same

all the books
of all history
are all the same
why do you expect
something different ?
a belief of mine

I hated most moments with you,
so glad you're boring someone new
It's always the people with little to offer who are the most conceited???
Some new can be the same
And some same can be new.
New can be same
If there are the same results,
The same viae
To arrive at the same loci.
Things are different though
All the same.
What happens when I stare at a waterfall for a while.
My eyes I wish I could remove
And change them with another
Yes, it's true
That they are blue
Just like those of my mother
Not how they look
The reason why
I wish they would unscrew
If I did wear
A different pair
Perhaps a different view

Oh, please dear friend
Just briefly lend
If not two then just one
It's all I need
To plant a seed
"Before" can be undone
The way you see
How you view me
Wish for me same was true
But my eyes frown
As they look down
Don't see things like you do

Pathetically
I try to flee
But can't outrun myself
My destiny
Forever weak
Success put on a shelf
If just a peak
A passing streak
Please give me something new
Ask for one scene
Where I could gleen
An image that is true

A sparkling sheen
But in between
The lines I start to skew
Awake or dream
Not what they seem
Instead a nightmare drew
Why can't I find
Place in my mind
A honed in frequency
To feel sublime
Like all is fine
Replace my cup of tea

If for one day
Saw things your way
Beliefs maybe could change
Instead I lay
In bed I've made
Forget eyes, need new brain
