Ghosts of Youghosts of you are everywhere;remInding me, alwayS There.i dIdn't mean to say goodbye;was just afraid to ask you why:why you bLushed and why you sighed;we didn't rushthat's why we died.the gLow faded, our Love fought;i wish i'd knOwn what you thought.i neVer knEw what You wanted;nOw i'm stuck with being haUnted.
SurviveWhispers in my earCompel me to surrender.But I will not hear;I defy my contender.Defeat is not an option;There is no other way:Survive against all oddsTo die another day.'Tis the oldest battlecry;The only ultimatum.Fight until you dieRather plain verbatim.To be classified as "alive,"Survive, survive, survive.
I'm Here for YouWhat do you expect me to sayWhen you keep pushing me away?RememberI can't read your mind,And time cannot rewind.Regret will only make it worseLike a bad omen from a curse.This will surely make you stronger;Please just hold on longer.I'll be here, right by your side;You don't have to run and hide.Just try to find the silver liningThe sun will keep on shining.Never forget that this is true:I am here for you.
ExpectationsThe pressure keeps me going,Yet holds me back.The thought isn't comfortingIt feels like an attack.The sort that keeps me up at night;Why my fingernails are short.Like a dark and looming blight;A disheartening exhort.Better, better, better!The expectation is quite blunt.Never, never, never...Exactly what they want.I'm not the person I want to be,Due to expectations.Under the eyes that never seeMy pain is their creation.
She BelievedI stumble through my mind,Weakened by the pain of years.I always search but cannot findThe source of all my bitter tears.I see a light, an anchor, a hope;I limp faster, relieved by the sight.I found a gentle, downward slopeLike a rescue from a blight.I lean on you, no longer afraid;Finally I have found relief.Tears dry, memories fade,Like wind carries a wilted leaf.But in the end, it wasn't trueYou held my heart yet let it die.My anchor became my noose;My trust was blinded to your lie.How could I be so ignorant?You pledged to never leave my side.There's none to blame but myself"She believed when he lied."
What's Not Being SaidI heard you sighbut at the timeI didn't say a word;I saw you crybut didn't knowyour voice was so unheard.I felt you breakbut truly thoughtI shouldn't be around;For my own sakeI should have foughtto keep your feelings sound.Please, listen to what's not being said.
MemoryMemory is like the tide,It swells and ebbs;It's free and wide,Yet ridden with dregs.At times it's calmSoothing and sweet;Like a tender balm,A gentle beat.It's violent, tooCoarse and bitter;Like a vicious coup,A cruel winter.In it, I do bask,Adrift in my mind;I need only askTo be lost in time.
ContinueWhen the world strikes you down,Continue.When your smile becomes a frown,Continue.When you stumble and fall,Continue.When you wager and lose all,Continue.When the world laughs at you,Continue.When many becomes few,Continue.There's nothing else to do except...Continue.
Wish for PrivacyI live behind a locked door,And no one has the key.It has been years, maybe moreSince someone talked to me.The solitude was nice at first,The quiet let me think.But soon it took a turn for worseNow all I do is blink.So be careful, my dear friends,When you wish for privacy.Count to 5 when patience bendsOr you'll end up just like me.
KissKnees bend, hands shake,Lips part, hearts break,Blood pumps, thoughts fly,Bodies melt, worries die,Heads swim, fingers touch,Tongues rub, clothes bunch.Butterflies, adrenaline,Testosterone and estrogen,We fit like a glove, so...Kiss me again, love?
The Butterfly JarIn her hand was a little jarWith a butterfly shaped motifSmall enough to fit in her palmLarge enough to hold her beliefsAnd all of the hopes and the dreamsAnd the harrowing memoriesShe promised one day to revealThe contents of the jar to meProtected by the butterflyHer secrets remained safe and soundEach echoing in their own spaceAs there was no one else aroundThe winged beauty remained loyalAs the days like clouds floated byIt too was once a caterpillarThat never dreamt it could flyNow like a butterfly she'll escapeFrom her chrysalis-like mindShe will shed all of her sorrowsUnderneath the silken sunshineAnd with a God given impulseWings will flutter for the first timeThey will catch the wind of wonderInto the sky she'll begin to climb
Don't Let GoRestrained by insecurity, she is hard to love.Her heart however, hides a passion unknown.An unforeseen utopia, and still so much more.The problem, huge hearts make easy targets.The strategy is simple though, easy to learn.Follow this formula and you'll find your forever.Hold her tight through all of the happy times,and the fighting and the anger, don't let go.If you feel her falling take her hand in yours.When you feel like she is letting go, catch her.Protect her with your arms when she is scared.When she is sad, especially then, don't let go.Don't let her walk away, even if she wants to.Bravery is an act, nobody wants to be alone.It will take work, but the reward is her heart.And she will treasure you, but don't ever let go.
My Masquerade~My Masquerade~For the world I am displayed;They always watch but cannot seethrough my masquerade.I feel every moment fly;My heart is beating, pulse racing,breath held as I lie.My innocence I can't defend;I know that surely this will linger'til my very end.I brought this all upon myself;Mask upon mask, lie upon lielike valueless wealth.Dare I take these masks off no!My former self haunts meeverywhere I go.False glory, false honor, false fame;With all these masks I seem to haveforgotten my own name.
Dream OnA dream can bea passing thought;a passionate ambition.A dream can bea battle fought;a superficial mission.A dream can bea driving force;a forgiving comfort.A dream can bea thriving source;a deceitful consort.A dream can thrill you;drive you or kill you.Beware of this, dreamersand Dream On.
I'll Remember YouI'll remember youwhen someone steals my breathso I can't even speak.I'll remember youwhen the rain beats so hardI can't hear myself think.I'll remember youwhen I see a careless smileon a young girl's face.I'll remember youwhen my heart achesin a lonely place.I'll remember youwhen the going gets roughand no one's there for me.I'll remember youwhen I fruitlessly wishfor things that used to be.I'll remember youwhen I see someone smileas they hide a sigh.I'll remember youwhen someone's surprisedat the word "goodbye."I'll remember youwhen another claims to bemy other half.I'll remember you, darling...I'll remember and laugh.
StereotypeDon't shove a name on me Your stereotype can crash and burn.You cannot keep me down;I will always rise and return.Your labels mean nothing to me Utter nonsense through and through.Every person is unique;I am me and you are you.Skinny, smarty, four-eyed freak...Chubby, lazy, forgetful, meek...Afraid, coward, forgetful fool...Follower, do-gooder, mindless tool.All these names are meaningless I am me and you are you.But when names cease to beHow can you tell who is who?Labels define us and create us Remind us of who we are.Every person is unique,But stereotypes can go too far.
I'm Only HumanI'm only humanI make mistakesYet I'm always tryingTo save some faceI'm only humanI lie and I cheatYet I will neverAdmit defeatI'm only humanI whine and I cryBut it doesn't meanThat I won't tryI'm only humanI make mistakesBut I give it my allNo matter what it takes
My DiseaseMy fingers bleed wordsthat my lips cannot say.When they try to trickle out,I scowl and turn away.It may not be contagious,but it is a disease.Holding myself deep inside,it's getting hard to breathe.Lies come so easy,to cover up the truth.It’s like my second nature,grown from my very youth.It’s deeper than conviction,more earnest than a thought.It’s my wayIt’s my lifeIt is my disease.
Dear Jennifer."Do you believe me when I say I love you?" He forgets..."Yes, of course." Not when you're not saying it he doesn't."You know I love you right Jennifer?" He does."Yeah, of course." But he doesn't believe you. Dear Jennifer, it's not your fault he has trust issues.It's just all the pain and the hurt that has made him like this.Jennifer, if you have a choice then choose.Choose him, tell him you love him, give him a kiss. Because he forgets, he really does, he begins to doubt.When you haven't said it for a while, he starts to wonder.Whether you ever really wanted you two to go out.Whether he forced you into it, it makes him ponder. Whether you really love him, even if he believes so.Jennifer, he loves you, but he forgets...He loves you so much, this you already know.The b
I want someoneI want someone...Who will love me unconditionally.Who will rub my back and tell me everything is going to be okay.Who will listen to me... And tell me everything that they know.Who will be willing to put me back together...Who will light up with joy, and put on a smile, whenever they see me.Who will make me laugh when I am down, and never let me touch the ground.Who will be able to know when I need a kiss...Who will not even need to say words when we lay in bed... because so much love is just embedded into the 2 of us... we know what the other will say.Who will lift me up off the floor, and dust me off.Who will show me the path that I've longed for my whole life.Who will tell me "No matter what you do, nothing will change the way that I love you"Who will push everything away, to be together.Who will want to spend forever with me.Who will have the same likes and dislikes, so we can have a good conversation...but also a lot of different likes and dislikes, so that we are l
JudgementJudgement:You are a mewling coward and weaklingOffal to the world, yet too arrogant to admit it!Unbridled by the feelings of shame and guilt;A man who was naught but a self-serving sycophant...Remember the days that you used to spendEnvious of others who worked harder than youMore and more you would curse at their backsIt was an act that blackened your tongue and soul!Now as you gaze into the maw of the infernoEndlessly waiting for the judge's callRead the first letter of every line, and know the fate for which you fall.-Chen Yuan Wen, 6th July 2012

First KissI look at you, I'm nervous as hell, hoping against hope that you'd kiss me.The empty street, the soft porch light, your hazel eyes are all I can see.You lean down slowly, gently, letting your soft lips brush against mine.You do it again, again, and again... We completely lose track of the time.On my toes, your fingers lost in my hair, my body moulding to fit yours perfectly.You kiss my neck, my heart hammers away, your lips tasting like heaven to me.I was eighteen and never been kissed, until you came along, weakening my knees.With you it was perfect, as it should be... Would you kiss me once more, please?~C♡
For YouListen:I would be lying if I said that I didn'tThink of you every time I close my eyes,That my mind doesn't wander to thoughtsOf you whenever I'm lonely,That I don't whisper your nameWhile I sleep.Truth be told, I am inevitably in love with you.In a way that makes my heart skip a beat every timeI see you smile, every time I hear you laugh.It's the fact that I still get butterflies wheneverYou lightly whisper my name in my earThat lets me know we are something more.Your body,Nothing has ever seemed so comforting thanThe feeling of your arms wrapped around my waist.I smile up to you as we share a brief connection ofSoft lips and grazing teeth that makes me swoon.Listen:Believe me when I say that I think of youEvery time I close my eyes,That my mind always wanders to thoughtsOf you when I'm lonely,That I whisper your name while I sleep.Believe me when I say that I love you,That there's nowhere I'd rather beThan with you.
First TimeIt's as if my whole life had been lived in the shadows,And yet I was blissfully unaware of the light.Before her, I swore I knew what it was like to see,But now I can look back at how blind I truly was.It was her smile that illuminated my life,And her brilliance that finally opened my eyes.It was her fire that melted away my defenses,And it was her heart that was key to unlocking mine.She taught me that there was a world beyond the darkness;Another place where pain and anguish could disappear.For the first time in my life I'm right where I belong,And though I'm scared, I know it's all going to be all right.Praise be to Cupid, whose arrows surely pierced my heart.And to Venus for allowing such beauty on earth.
The Feelings That LingerThe Feelings That Linger:The sound of your voice still lingers hereEven though I know you're gone...And my nights have turned to sleepless days;They grow worse with every dawn...You've probably heard this story thoughAt least a thousand times or more.But the thing I remember best about herIs the sound of that closing door...It was like the end to everything;A cloud inside my head.When I came awake on that final night;I reached for her in bed-But an empty space was all I got;There was no one to wipe these tears.I could scream and cry for many hours;But it wouldn't chase my fears.I tried so hard to tell myselfThat everything would be alright.But instead I ended up reminsicingAbout her ever-present light...I'm just so tired of everything;I wish I didn't have to think...But maybe you'll hear me one last time;If I put this down in ink:We had a life that was beautifulAnd I
They SayThey Say.They say there is always a silver lining.But right now my future looks bleak.They say the sky is the limit.But my vision is blocked by a mountain peakThey say life is a game.But I was never any good at hide and seek.They say were all different.But does that mean that were all unique.They say everyone wants to win.But I have no desire to compete.They say there are plenty more fish in the sea.But they didn't say whether the water's shallow or deep.They say everyone is searching for the same answer.But I have'nt got it in me to cheat.They say I'm too negative.But I know this also comes hand in hand with defeat.They say a healthy mind is a healthy body.But I'm not to obsessed with my physique.They say some situations you must face, face to face.But sometimes I am not willing to turn the other cheek.They told me some day I'd be someone great.But I know that's a promise they cant keep.They say sometimes shit just happens.But I've recently discovere
I Feel FreeWhen I look into your eyes,I see experience.When I hold your hands,I know strength.When I touch your skin,I sense comfort.When I listen to your heart,I hear power.When I speak your name,I find pleasure.When I kiss your lips,I feel free.
