A storm is brewing
Breathing here is exhausting
A surprise exam

No one is prepared
To accept a zero score
The end is failure

Clutching our loose hope
Bracing for a strong impact
Preparing the worst

Yet we face nothing
Only a booming laughter
It's all a big joke
I experience this once and surely I almost cried because of his bad joke
MAYBE I'll ask the Sun to stay high
Atop its perch for a little while,
So its rays may bathe you in a glow,
A radiance, with not an inch of shadow
To hide the elegance that's stood before me.

MAYBE I'll beg the stars to hide,
Take a night off from lighting the sky,
For your smile brings about the brightest shine.
Or implore them to do so with more vibrancy
So that we may dance beneath such beauty.

MAYBE I will do all of this, create
A day that will never fade, never age,
Capture just a fraction of the passion,
That raw, tangible attraction and affection
Into what MAY BE that one single moment,
That everlasting, timeless memory -
The very essence of
You and Me.
The by-product of planning a surprise for the muse.

Hearts will shiver
Souls will howl
They will mourn for the gentle eyes
That promised love

They will only find this
Cold cellar of darkness

Not a whisper of joy
Only the echo of melancholy
A dark
And lonely grave

Have you ever had
a dream so profoundly
knitted from imagery
and faith
that it appeared
as if by magic
right in front of you

Was there a time
in your life
when you just knew
that something was true
without having proof
but it resonated so deeply
at the core of you

Were you ever
caught by surprise
with a vision
or deja vu
as if you right
there reliving
the moment or one
of a future time

Did you ever
sense an attraction
so palpable that
you had to dive
into the curiosity
of it without
a life jacket or floats

Sometimes there
are no logical
something the mind
has a difficut time
to comprehend
but there is a
part of you
that can.

When you trust
your soul and
break up
with the sound
bites of your
mind, you are
living the adventures
of a purposeful LIFE
time after time.

It was like a kid
Opening the gift
He waited for
For too long
Then found
An empty box
When I
Waited for too long
To be alone with you
Then you fell asleep
In my bed.
No cuddle and no sheets. Meh.

Who has picked up pencil colors,
Such deep red colors,
And lighted a little red fire,
on that pine shrub:
Who, O Who, has made
this red cardinal!
On this colorless white
morning, who made my
morning, lucky with red!

I want to live happy.
I don't want to cry.
I want to live long.
I don't want to die.
I want to be loved.
I want to be cared.
I want to live long.
I don't want to be scared.
But life can surprise you
at any moment.
And there's no guarantee
that things will go
the way you hoped.
