This Love

You
Can be my redemption
or my destruction.
And I
Might be your salvation
or a wrong inclination.
We
Can be an institution
or a twisted illusion.

Grab my hand
and we will try to see
where this road leads.
Don’t let go
even when it seems
the end is near.

You
Will be my affirmation
of this affection.
And I
Will be your declaration
of this devotion.
We
Will swim in our emotions
and drown in our passion.

Grab my hand
and we will try to see
where this road leads.
Don’t let go
even when it seems
the end is near.

This love
A revolution
They view
With aversion

Storm

In the silence of the morning
Staring out my window
Sun shining down the pavement
Too calm for my own enjoyment

A knock shook me out of my daze
Walking to the front door
Something inside me twist in pain
Why did it feel it’s gonna rain

I run against the wind
Rain against my face
Reaching out to you
Calling out your name

Inside folded primly like a napkin
Words staring back at me
The sun turned black I couldn’t see
How can you leave, how can this be

Pushed against the wall in my bedroom
I gasped for air to breathe
Just last night you said we’ll be forever
What changed your mind to up and leave

I run against the wind
Rain against my face
Reaching out to you
Calling out your name

This whirlwind romance I do not understand
I fell too quickly now I’m dropped like a bomb
​You with your perfect smile left like a perfect storm
Now I’m drenched and clueless, where did I go wrong

I run against the wind
Rain against my face
Reaching out to you
Calling out your name

Second-Guessing

I notice that look
I disregard it
I shake off the feeling
Of enjoying it

I heard what she said
About you and me
Laugh off the thought
The meaning behind it

And we go round and round in circles
Second-guessing ourselves
Thinking might be, hoping may be
Not truly wanting to dissuade ourselves

Sometimes I feel like
You’re running away
Or maybe I’m haunted
By imaginary days

Is this avoidance
The fear of dismay
To fight off feelings
For prudence’s sake

And we go round and round in circles
Second-guessing ourselves
Thinking might be, hoping may be
Not truly wanting to dissuade ourselves

Maybe it’s time to simply let it go
Enjoy what comes and cry for moments gone
Been reading minds and stares and smiles
I’ve failed too many times don’t want to fail this time

And we go round and round in circles
Second-guessing ourselves
Thinking might be, hoping may be
Not truly wanting to dissuade ourselves

My Heart Sings

Perfeclty Flawed © 08.10.13

There’s a song that my heart is singing
A song that gives my life meaning
Shouts of joy so overwhelming
Praises I raise to the Almighty Being

Once in darkness I was wandering
Lost, confused, kept on stumbling
Caught on dead ends and cliff-hangings
Uncertain future that keeps evaporating

A voice so still, I heard it calling
Red droplets from above keep falling
A light from faint to bright keeps glowing
My feet, towards it, start moving

Sunshine never felt so inviting
Flowers never smelled as pleasing
Hope never been solid and enduring
‘Til that fateful day my Saviour caught me

So my heart will keep rejoicing
Until the day of my Saviour’s coming
I will bask in the light of His mercy
And of His passion, of His love for me.

If You’re Sad, Tired and Lonely…

Born out of a conversation I had with a friend… A different version of the nursery rhyme “If You’re Happy and You know It”

If you’re sad, tired and lonely clasp your hands, and pray
If you’re sad, tired and lonely clasp your hands, and pray
If you’re sad, tired and lonely though your face may never show it, if you’re sad, tired and lonely clasp your hands, and pray
