where everyone's thoughts matter.

LIke a lovestruck teenager,

I am holding onto you.

But you don’t even know me,

you never had a clue.

About the love I feel,

Or the dreams I have inside.

You don’t even think about me,

yet you’re always in my mind.

Like a lovestruck teenager,

I’m writing letters everyday.

Though I never had the guts to send ’em to you.

But I keep on writing anyway.

About the everything I feel,

And all the love I want to give.

But you were always with someone else.

And my love, you cannot receive.

Still like a lovestruck teenager,

I am not afraid to let you know.

That your smile is my favorite vision.

and I can never let you go.


I opened my eyes to a new morning.
I have nowhere to go but my spirit’s soaring.
No idea about what will happen today.
But I know there’s nothing that can cause dismay.

Good thoughts and nice flutter.
I feel the wind touching my face.
Such a very good feeling.
The air is my saving grace.

I feel most alive now.
With such a youthful drive.
I know life wouldn’t be easy.
But I don’t mind to strive.

I was never really an optimist
but it’s nice to be on for a change.
I don’t want to dwell on the bad
when positivitiy has an endless range.


Small talks and Stolen glances

Hands are tied

 But you’re taking chances

Just looking in yet standing outside

smells like another sin.

Stepped a toe out of line

Take your chances, thinking it is fine.

You removed your ring,

Rehearse your lines.

Let the games begin….

He’s playing his cards.

With coolness and suave

She’s taking part, hoping to love.

In the dark. In the night.

Two bodies collide.

She’s playing her heart.

He’s using his mind.

Now He got what he wanted.

He got rid of the heat.

He left her with nothing

but promises he couldn’t keep.


It is a very dark day today.

The sun barely shed its glow.

The wind is blowing relentlessly.

Like it is telling me something I shouldn’t know.

It is a very cold night tonight.

Weather that is so conducive for sleep.

I have always loved nights like this.

But tonight this coldness is keeping me stiff.

It is a really big world out there.

Seven billion people that are trying to find their ways.

Seven billion souls are still figuring out who they are supposed to be.

Seven billion beings trying to survive every day.

It is such a mystery that in there are seven biliion people in this planet.

Yet one still feels isolated from the everyone else.

All shacked up in the corner, invisble to the world.

Imagine, Seven Billion people, yet she faces the world alone.

 


Looking inside and wanting to belong,

Curled up in bed with heart beating strong.

Closed lip sighs, another pain locked away.

Vows you want to make but it was never the right day.

Taking a leap, you have been waiting for so long.

Immense in a state where heart is breaking in the sun.

Opened up yourself and wishing him to stay.

But he was never in love, he just cared anyway.

You tell yourself it’s okay. You tried to give your best shot.

But you were never okay with the fact that he loves you not.

You chose to put on a face. So determined, so willing, so brave.

But unraveling the mask, you are trapped in loneliness’s grave.

Crackling sounds of thunder is not helping your case.

Falling is a kind of blunder and believing is such a waste.

You were on the brink of giving up the love you always want.

But just before you were to cut ends loose, he extended his hand.

He reached to you and suddenly you feel no reason to be sad.

Your heart skipped a beat and you swore it was the best day you ever had.


Clouding up in thoughts

while mind speaks frightened words.

Whispers in the wind

but messages remain unheard.

The solitude of a man,

peaceful as the break of dawn.

In a solitary room,

where love was never on.

He has nowhere to go.

No one to turn to for advice.

He is on his own.

Watching himself demise.

Alone in the silence

Left out in the crowd.

With nothing but his thoughts

and the pain screaming loud.


Truth to be told,

I need you to hold.

My Hand, My Heart.

When can we even start?

Truth to be said,

You piled up in my head.

Your smile, Your skin.

My defenses are turning thin.

That’s the truth locked inside of me.

 I am already setting it free.

Now that you have it in your hands…

Are you going to tell me, Where I should stand?


To think of times you come and go

in the minds of people you didn’t even know

 The coldness of their piercing looks,

because of the path you knowingly took.

You live a life with nothing left,

but all those guilt that seemed unkempt.

Bottled up regrets that keeps you still,

the life of a man that you were so quick to steal.

You are the cultprit, the witness and the victim.

You gain a little yet you lost your dreams.

Wishing everything can end in a blink of an eye.

You wishing the easiest way to die.

But you were long dead even before you die.

You lost for family and friends that night.

You want it all to end so fast

Because you think in  death, you will be free at last.

PS:

I know this is a really dark poem.

For some reasons, These words came

to me after reading a story of a murderer

who asked for death penalty but

was given life imprisonmennt.


I think about how the sound of rain puts me in trance

The glow of the sun as it shines with each glance

The rhythm of the wind as it passes me by

The heartbreaking part when I said goodbye.

Scenic scenes I wish you still could see

The better one you hoped that I would be.

The things I did to make you proud.

Maybe you are still watching up above the clouds.

I think about those times I spent away from you

I can never get that back.

The love you had given me

though at times I lost track

I wished I was there enough for you.

because I know I wasn’t there enough.

I wished I could have given you more.

I wished I made you laugh.

One day, We will all meet up again.

I know you will love as you love me then.

P.S. Missing you Grandma.

RIP 9/4/1930-8/31/2011


That night that you left,

was the same night that I cried.

That day you were gone,

was  the same day I had none.

You turned your back

and I turned away.

You lost your life

but the pain in me stayed.

Those years that passed,

I wonder how I made it through.

You broke my heart

yet you never had a clue.

There are lots of questions,

questions inside my head.

Why did you have to go?

You should have been with us instead.

Then I feel your hand,

pressed against mine.

Finally, I can see you.

and see your face shine.

But when I opened my eyes,

there was no you.

It was only a dream,

but I wished it was true.
