Your Eyes

you speak to me when you have nothing to say
you embrace me when you feel the numbness
of your body
you hold me when you are in complete doubt
you love me in your silence

yet,

your eyes speak of a thousand words unspoken
your eyes embody an embrace,

not even indifference would have a chance
your eyes hold a sense of confidence and conviction

for

even if you love me in your silence
your eyes scream of home for me

Don’t Make It Yours

of the many things you’ve said
I kept my silence, for my words are sacred
I’d love to use them to speak of kindness,
love, and compassion. but for once, just for once, and may the universe forgive me if I do this.
.
how dare you question what I feel
how dare you mock me when I am scared
I cried. yes, I did. and yes, oh, you wiped them away.
only to give way to more tears and more agony
flooding through my eyes, down to my veins
every single cell in my body is trembling
.
and oh, yes I ranted. ah, no I did not just rant
I shouted at length, wild and impassioned
it felt so good, so good to finally be able to do that. ’twas so good and you listened, attentively
without interrupting. and why wouldn’t you?
’twas all ’bout you, ’bout your crazy theories
of why can’t we be.
so how dare you, how dare flaunts that.
how dare you parade your words as if I owe you
.
so may the universe forgive me indeed
for using my sacred words to make you see
the things you seemed to have forgotten
where were you then when I needed a shoulder to cry on?
where were you when I needed someone to listen to me?
where were you when I needed you the most?
you were nowhere to be found
.
and may the universe forgive me, but hey
let’s admit it. we were both lost.
both broken. both wasted.
.
don’t make it yours
for you’re not the only one
hurting, grieving, bleeding
.
baby, can we take it slow and please
just please maybe this time
let’s be lost together?
.

Drive

I took a much needed drive
drive to nowhere,
nothing just drive
to unleash, to unravel
or maybe to find answers
to many questions I so long
struggle to acknowledge
or maybe to stumble upon
an answer to my soul’s dilemma

ah this drive, oh, this drive
if this could take me
to where you are,
exactly at the moment
my heart fully bleeds for you
my soul truly sought for you
I’d gladly take
the extra mile
hurry
rush
and
run

‘cos baby it’s lonely
out here
without
you

Your Name

and in the twilight of my life
when my world will be partially illuminated
where there is neither darkness nor light
all I ever wish to have is that single speck
of light, that single spark of joy with you
for I love you from the morn’ of my soul
’till the dusk of my breath
and I will love you even more
in the midnight of my being
when the whole world is in perfect silence
my heart screams loudly
of your name like it’s the last
word I am gonna utter
your name and yours alone
