Moonshine.

Here I am staring up
gazing at your glory.
Here without companion,
alone but ne’er lonely.

The splendor you bring
to this night sky.
Majesty and magnificence
nothing else can defy.

I close my eyes,
I make a wish,
hoping as I sleep
you’d keep me tonight.

For only in my sleep
do I feel your eyes on me.
I wander in my waking moments
as I ponder on what we could be.

Sitting here looking
for words to rhyme,
Waving up on you
on this dark grey sky.

Boast on your silver finish,
Keep on shining up high!
I’ve fallen in love with the moon,
That – I could never deny.

Moon.

At first glance,
I didn’t think much of you.
You were something new to me
I couldn’t care less what you do.

A few days went by,
No one has noticed you.
I’m not sure why,
for some reason people fear you.

A conversation’s transpired
between you and I.
One evening on a cloudless sky,
we saw each other eye to eye.

Then the moon became our center,
How we got there? I can’t remember.
We traveled the vast galaxies,
other worlds – the limitless light-years.

Caught with this connection,
that you and I never imagined.
Then something in me changed,
the moon became you instead.

Closer and closer
I got pulled in to your gravity.
And I wanted to stay
locked in your captivity.

Though, just like the moon,
you had to go away.
You’re up there now,
while here on Earth, I stayed.

Gloomy

I feel so gloomy right now.
Say I’m a bit unhinged,
Say I’m a little down,
Say I don’t want anyone around?
Don’t ask coz I don’t know
the reason why I feel too low.
I walk around thinking
That all is fine,
all the while hoping
for a time to unwind.
There’s too much mess,
too many voices,
crammed in this head
I feel my skull break.
I need stars,
something to look from afar.
Hear the drizzling of the rain,
oh what joy that would bring!
I just want to stop,
stop feeling so sad.
Let go of the sorrow,
just forget the past.
Begin my tomorrow
and not heave on to these sighs.
Move forward and forward,
Throw away the wretchedness,
I gotta fight this hard,
fin’lly get rid of this loneliness.

You Came Along.

I was but a kid
with no direction.
Who’d ever think
I’d hold ambition.

I was simple-minded
and avoided what’s obscure.
Til you came and changed
the tunes in my songs.

I’ve done things
I never knew I could.
I’ve crossed the borders
and exceeded my limitations.

Forever, I will appreciate
what you’ve taught me
things ‘bout life, reality
and life’s wondrous beauty.

I had no life’s mission
nor do I make decisions
that I’ve concluded on my own.
Not until you came along.

Lost in Translation.

As soon as I wake
The first thing I’d do
Is kiss you in the lips,
then hug and greet you.
I hope you don’t mind
for I find your beauty
utterly divine,
with your smile that can beat
a thousand kind of sunshine.
You do things to me
Even without moving.
Words from my lips flee
soon as you start talking.
You ask me what I need
but no lines could ever escape,
no description can dictate
the love that i have for you,
no language could ever translate.

M.U. (Mutual Understanding)

I like you, you like me.
Is this all that
it ought to be?
It’s a mutual thing you say,
especially as we
feel the same way.
Though I need to ask
“What’s the catch?”
If this “thing” we continue?
for I don’t think I could
settle being just an “M.U.”
I’m loaded with your
sweet charade and galant
romance and serenade.
But I wouldn’t want to
hope on something and
end up getting played.
Let’s make it real,
why wait in agony
of trying to play it longer?
If this what we feel
we both can agree
has only gotten stronger.

Facade.

Are we over?
I asked you that
once before.
You smiled
but never answered
left me wondering
if it even mattered.
I’m with you
as you’re with me –
I hope…
but I can’t ignore
the gnawing
sensation inside
like there’s something
you’re trying
to hide.
That the colors
you’re showing me
isn’t in black and white.
I’m stuck in grey matter
I know for sure
it isn’t something I like.
Are we over?
This is the last
that I’ll ask…
If what we have,
is nothing
but a fake or facade.
