?

I don’t know what else I could say,
to the things that are on display.
When you put a smile on your face,
who would know you’re crying inside to save grace.
Leaves still fall, and snow still come in Winter,
yet I see you building a reservoir,
that if one day, I push you over,
you’d be flooded in your own river.
Au revoir you said, “au revoir!
there’s too much to take, and too little to taste.
Better if I disappear, then everything will be great.”
I watch you, turning to vapours,
dancing, to the music of Lola.
I opened my eyes and looked into the mirror,
was that me, or was that a soul stealer?

The Shooting Star

the sparkles in your eyes
and the glow on your face
I’ll never forget
the feelings inside
so delicate
and so intricate
the moment that shines
like a luminating star
that shoots in the sky
and fades away
few seconds
and it’ll all vanish
all those years buried in darkness
to get prepared for a flash of joyfulness
the explosion of glory
full of different stories
once it’s over
you wait again
for the next time to flourish
and shine once more
at the deep black sky

Once in a while,
I think about how you smile,
From 30,000 miles, I linger onto,
the memories we filed.
Love came, but quickly gone,
leaving sorrow between us, all season long.

Sometimes I wonder,
if you ever felt the same,
or was it just me,
dreaming of your name.
To the moon I sing, the only song we have,
is this what’s left, and all there is to bring?
