A Story Of HopeHere's my handTake it, entangle out fingersWe'll walk togetherDown this alley of golden petalsOff to find hopeIn a dreamland of imaginationJust promise meYou'll never release your graspFor it's the only loveI have left to feel in this heartStay by my sidePlease, never leave me in foreverOur worsts are aheadBut we can fight them togetherI can already seeThe golden gates of Hell nearRising open to usIn the distance that awaitsTighten your gripPromise you love me alwaysThere's no turningAnd I...I may not live through this,Not without you
Mixed FeelingsIt's mixed feelingsDished in confusionAre you attractive in my eyes?Sure, I like your face,And your personality gleamsYet I'm not sureIf this is an attractionOr a great friendshipIf only I could tell you,I want to knowIf you feel as I doWe're nice friends,Yet a kiss from your lipsHas appeared in my day dreamsCould we ever fallUnder that spellThey title "love"?I don't know about that,But despite this mixI do know one thing:I love you.I'm not sure how I mean it,I just know that I do.
Sleepy WindThe sound of the windAs it rustles dried leavesThrough the fresh branchesOf the large, green bushGrowing outside my open windowThe beautiful feelingAs the breeze walks inAnd captures my skinWhile goosebumpsRun away beforeSettling to the realizationThe this is okayWhilst I write,I can hear the wayThe leaves flutter aboutAnd I knowRain will pass in the nightWhile I sleep with the windEven now, my eyes are leavesFluttering about and knowingRelaxation is soon,But the wind will be foreverTo keep me goingEven when I'm unableTo control what's around meSleepy wind,Rolling on,Never stopping,Keeping going,Endless,Tired but goes,For us and nature,Wind never sleeps
My Life Lives For YouI'm sure I'm not the only oneWho has ever wondered whyThey were put here on this EarthTo live for and how to do soI've been called insaneSo many countless times forMy own personal belief overMy own personal 'why' I'm hereIt's in at least my own mindSince I was too young to evenKnow what I meant with it, butIt's my own personal belief thatI live here on this Earth we shareTo be here for others, I meanThere must be a reason to whyI've been blessed with the wordsI seem to share with many each dayI live by the rule of caring, withoutExpecting anything back in returnBut a true smile spreading your lipsMy life is far from a prosperous one,Aside from the family's income amountMy wallet is commonly empty, becauseThat money currently lies upon theTable of my friend's home for their useI care more about a stranger's lifeThan I do about my own, even with theSame exact problems we may share -Then again, going through my own helpsTo understand others in their trekAgain
If I Told YouIf I told youThat I loved youHow would you react?Not like I'm in love,Just like a friend or familyI want you to knowBut I'm afraid to say itI'm afraidThat you'll overthink itI'm afraidSomeday it could mean moreAn amazing friendship,And/or a simple crush...If not speaking upMeans not driving you awayThen don't be shockedBy my silenceBut, if it means you know,I'll speak it outBut only anonymously:I love you...

She's so funny, I love her!She's gorgeous too,She really knows how to design herselfWith all that makeup.Her? Oh, she's so dull...All she does is sit there for hoursCovering up her beautyWith thin layers of colors to hide behind-----In the days I was young,Experimenting with how this makeup stuff worksAnd I began to be...

The BartenderHe takes another crystal cupfrom the rack of containers at his side,wiping it clean,filling it with tonic and gin,and all that liquid gold,then putting it on the counterfor the newest sad sack fresh through the door,full of sorrowand ready to drink away his woes.Sometimes he wishes that it was himsitting on the chair in front of his place,emptying his walletin exchange for emptying his mindand his clouded heartof all their demons.He has bills to be paidand debts to be remade.He wishes that he was the onetalking with this understanding bartender,who just happens to be such a good listener.But he knows that can never be.He has to be the onewho hears all the woes and troubles,the one who is perpetually preparedto offer his moral supportin times of need, disaster, and even any mild confusion.He can't be the one to break or bawl,can't afford to crumble or fall.He has to stand, always, an invincible pillar,reliable, sturdy, robust, and tall.No matter what demons

Common lie"Are you OK?""Yeah, I'm fine"
ForgivenessI kept staring at the cars as they passed by. Just standing there, under the streetlight, feeling the light rain and the breeze on my face. Wondering if she would come. I checked the time. Almost 10 p.m. All I could do was wait. Would she even come? After all my mistakes, after all my actions, after I hurt her so badly? I only wanted forgiveness. I knew I didn't deserve it but I had to try. The rain intensified as I let out a sigh."Who am I kidding? She will never come", I thought. But I didn't care. I tried. So I turned around to leave. But there she was. As beautiful as I remembered, under her umbrella."You asked me to come, and here I am", she said. "What do you want?"Her voice wasn't friendly. But I went on."I wanted to apologize for what I did to you. I know it was wrong. You deserved better."She looked at me for a moment. Then she smiled."Everybody makes mistakes", she wispered. "Promise me it will never happen again""I promise"And so we kissed, putting the past behind us
