Let’s.

Let's take a walk in this mad, mad world; you better hold my hand 'cuz it's gonna get cold. Lavender winds caress your hair, the entirety envies your flair, girl, you're a sight for my sore eyes and a beauty to behold. Let's have a talk in this lonely, crowded shack. Would you like some…

Back to life.

The suppressed voice didn't dare lash out. The world was getting blurrier, adding to it, the double vision. Is the sky falling down? Why does it feel like the ground is about to cave in? There are people staring but nobody seemed to care. I couldn't feel my arms anymore; my legs gave up on…

“broken”fast.

"Too much water." I thought and ran back inside, emptied half of the bowl and walked outside. "The flame should be thin." Had to rush inside again. It took ten minutes to figure out how thin it must be. "Make sure to use some oil so that they don't stick." Mom yelled from the other…

Balance.

The road was wide open; nobody except me and my dad on his old scooter which I hated. He was going slow, which I hated more. "C'mon! There's nobody else on the road, what's the worse that could happen? Go faster!" I groaned. A few moments later, I could see other vehicles crossing us, passing…

Is that you?

I still see you On the swing, laughing hard Moving slow When I look out the window; Could it be untrue? I notice the leaves that fall, Trees covered in snow, The older I grow; This wrinkly skin knows Your touch was that of God, Healing my soul, In the hot summer strolls.

Here.

"Here lies the man broken by His dreams" Said the stone as I passed by He lived with the world, Now he sleeps alone No dried flowers on his side And nobody to mourn What do you live by? I think as I smoke A warmth fills my heart And I escape the cold With…

Way

Whistling winds sang along And I walked my way On the roads lonely and long "If you're not weak" I heard him say "You can't be strong" I searched for the place Where I belong So many eyes, words Waving hands and Hard goodbyes Still waters, silent hills Naked skies and snakes on road Whatever…

Stories.

"Do you know what it's like when we see you walking home drunk?" He said, clenching his fists, containing his fury, trying to stay composed as tears swept his face. "I've been living like a stranger in my own house for more than twenty years now, kid. Let that sink in." Said the father, collapsing…

Fears.

This man had a golden ring That guy could dance and sing The pale man held you by your hip The fat guy gestured me to sit Sometimes I waited in that car Other days, I'd just stand afar Won't dare imagine where you were When you come back crying, hiding a scar Took the…
