She feels like she's slowly drowning
From the sea of questions left unanswered
Crashing like gigantic waves, reeling her
Into the unfathomable depths of her mind

Trying hard to reach shallow waters
Seeking out to glimpse the moon
But the ocean has got a strong grip on her
That an unwanted feeling slowly loom

Entrapped in it's cold yet peaceful demeanor
Slowly submitting to the phantom's silent gaze
The girl that tirelessly tried to swim back ashore
Succumbed herself to the ocean's masked embrace

So, tired, she closed her eyes
The song of the sirens is so captivating
Snared by the ocean's tranquil facade
"I guess...I wouldn't mind staying"
The girl's last thought before she closed her eyes and let the cold darkness engulf her in it's embrace.

I wonder...
What if I confessed to you when I had the chance?
What if I let you hear the words that long to be spoken?
What if I told you the truth instead of saying nothing?
Would our story have a different ending?
Or are we really doomed to just be friends from the beginning?
Another "what if" to our story

Have you ever seen a starless sky?
Asked the little girl
Where when you look up,you see nothing
But a blanket of despair

An epitome of darkness
Cloaked in clouded fear
Shrouded little darkened stars
A fallen angel's tear

The curious girl then looked up
Towards the little boy
Anticipating his reply
Tightly hugging her little toy

Do you believe a starless sky
Really does exist?
Or is it just how you percieve
And what your mind insists?

Do you think that stars are not there
Just because they can't be seen
Or maybe they just need more time
To light the sky up like how they've been

The little boy, full of wonder
Questioned back the puzzled girl
Saying things that can't be seen
Doesn't mean that it's not there

You see, the little boy spoke
There really is no starless sky
It all depends in what we believe
And the viewer's eyes
We are under the same star(less) sky

She was like a star
An unnoticed one, that is

With spark not darker than normal
But not brighter than this

So, in order to be seen
She did her best to shine

She wanted to fit in
So she pretended she was fine

And yes,she did it
Her spark was perfectly sheeny

And people came to notice her
While other stars were envy

But then one faithful night
Without warning, she darkened

Everybody was confused
I guess they have forgotten

They didn't see what's within
And focused on what's out

They forgot a star shines brightest
When it's starting to burn out

If I die today,
Would tears flow,
like a rushing river?
Or the clouds weep,
screaming in thunder?
Would the earth break,
shaking in anger?
Will the world care?
And for a moment,
forget laughter?

If I'm down
to my final heartbeat.
Will anyone be there,
sitting beside me?
When I draw,
the very last breath.
Will you hold my hand,
and feel upset?

If I go,
without saying goodbye.
I want you to know,
that I really tried.
To live and love,
to endure and smile.
To find the truth,
in this realm of lies.

If I'm fated
of leaving soon
to talk with God,
in his glowing room.
I'll be rejoicing,
when I face my doom.
Even I end like a flower,
that withered,
before it blooms.

If inside the casket I lay,
Would there any heaven for me to stay?
Or will my sins, demand me to pay?
Don't even know, how much this life has weighed.

If it's my time, to step on the scale.
Done of my part, in this play.
A lot of regrets,
but nothing more to say.
Wish me luck.
If I die today.

You were my sun
As I was your moon

And ours was a rare eclipse of the midnight sun and the midday moon

At least
It used to be.
For the sun and the moon shared a love so strong that even destiny can't keep them apart for so long.

But even an eclipse has to end.
