The Perfect Friend

The Perfect Friend ©

Today I found a friend 
Who knew everything I felt
She knew my weakness
And the problems I’ve been dealt.
She understood my wonders
And listened to my dreams, 
She listened to how I felt about life and love
And knew what it all means.
Not once did she interrupt me
Or tell me I was wrong
She understood what I was going through
And promised she'd stay long.
I reached out to this friend, 
To show her that I care
To pull her close and let her know
How much I need her there.
I went to hold her hand 
To pull her a bit nearer
And I realized this perfect friend I found
Was nothing but a mirror

Things go wrong

Love hurts and people change. Things go wrong and things get strange. But life goes on and you only life it once. Be strong cause things will get better over the months. I thought I was heartbroken, I thought you were my world. You fooled me though, made me think I was your only girl. But all along, you didnt care. Im not sure, your were even completely there. But now I've moved on, when I thought it was impossible. I had to be the bigger person in this breakup, I was responsible. I let it get to me, but I didnt let it ruin me completely. I didnt do anything about the hurt you caused me, I acted so sweetly. I let you walk all over me, I tried to ignore how you disrespected me. But when I ended things, the pain was easier to see.

yes, I am lonely enough to die; 
lonely enough to cry; 
lonely enough to ask Myself 'why'? 
yes, I am lonely enough to say goodbye! 

Everybody wants to live forever; 
its what i wanted never; 
the thing i wanted ever; 
but nobody loved me like forever.

Nobody wants to die; 
Nobody wants to cry; 
its Me who wanted this all to try; 
and thats the reason why every second i die! 

Its the most difficult thing to realize, 
when you yourself wants to be killed by a knife; 
is it really swift to live such a life; 
NO! as you know you have to be wise! 

Can't even attempt something like suicide; 
cause my religion is still walking beside.
its makes me feel scared side by side, 
what if i died and nobody cried! 

Still there is something to which I am tied; 
but umpteen times i have lied; 
and umpteen times i have cried; 
as i really not find this world wide.

As I told you i never was clever; 
so now I am saying GOODBYE FOREVER!

A Shady Tree

I know its the summer time because of how naturally 
Your beauty compliments the caress of a summer breeze
As I watch the world from beneath a shady tree
I take in the delightful comfort of everything I see
But in the same breath I am holding up my hands
Lord will you please give me back the things I no longer have
They are even more a part of me now that they are gone 
As the sun falls below where the horizon is still holding on
Somewhere between the falling light and a star lit night
Is a dream that last forever and will never say goodbye
As the wind gently blows through the brush and shakes the leaves
It begins to hum a melody that I want to sing
At that very moment I smile for all the joy I have
Its so uplifting for me to see melancholy dance
Soon the morning sun will rise and capture my eyes
As I watch the hand of God paint a brand new sky
With every stroke of color I swallow all my pride
And I find a new place to dream of endless times
If I should ever get to the place I left my broken heart
Only then will I believe this brand new day will start
Again Im reminded of why my heart beats so restlessly
Only the speed of thought and my soul beneath this tree

Listen my love...

It's time to say

Since the day the
world came into
existence it has
been grim and cold!

Like a medicine
we'll have to take
sooner or later

Its taste in our
mouth bitterish

At this time tears
and promises will be

In an empty solace
we believe.

The curtains fall,
the film is over

The one we thought
would never end.

As you see we've got
nothing to talk
about anymore

Just sorrow in our

This is separation
what we had never

It's the twin sister
of death

I'm leaving! We'll
never see each other

This were our last

You'll start a new
life now

with your new

he'll kiss your
hands now

he'll whisper love
to your ear

Except for the

what a shame
...there'll be
nothing left of me
inside of you

put out your
cigarette we can get
up now

10 steps later our
paths have to split

Don't! No don't cry

And don't say
anything to me

Cause even when
you're breaking up
one should stand

I'm leaving..yes I'm

We'll never get to
see each other again

This were our last

You'll start a new
life now

him with your new

Bitter by ; being mentally bruised and battered most of my life,
shaken with fright without a single soul to help me
through the troubles unseen horrors of the night, 
from an evil source that I fear to strike. 
But as the evil forces, who limited my choices 
that when I found my stallion horses. 
Swiftly it came to my head I can run and I cannot hide, 
feeling the Beast closing in on every time I decide to hide. 
Tired of running and tired of alluding this
relentless creep as my red bolt eyes weep 
feeling rest-less, likes a lonely defeated warrior from his home in retreat 
that is when I knew it time to rest, to release my Beast. 
But in a fight, I may not win however as I cast out my dirty words sin
I made sure it felt my impact, to the bloody end.

Love, Your Lonely Trucker Wife

Another night alone
Because the road is all you know.
Carry my heart with you please
Do with it what you will.
Every moment that you are gone
Fear consumes my soul.
Giving me reason to feel this cold
How hard to live this lonesome life.
I've given you all of me
Just to watch your tired eyes
Kill my ounce of hope.
Living this life has grown so old
My mind understands 
Never will my heart.
Of all the things in the world
Pulling that load hurts me the most.
Questions flutter across the room 
Regrets unspoken and how they consume.
Struggling to survive day to day
Torn to nothing
Unaware and ashamed.
Vigorously searching for what is unknown
Warmth of your touch is all I long for.
Xanthic flesh from our years
Zealous no more from these tears.

Love dont pass me by

Love don't paas me by because i'm sweet as honey freash as a
lily and i bloom just like a rose.
When you look into my eyes you can see the truth be told deep
within my soul.
Sweet love don't pass me by on this lonely night i cry.
I am as gentel as a feather i am as an angel who is always ther for 
you to protect and comfort you,
i am as the sun that shines after a stormy day,
i am a rainbow of luck that'll make your days so swell.
Sweet love dont pass me by when i am here for you: rather you are rich
or poor, rather you are right or wrong ,rather you doubt me
or beleive me, just don't use me or abuse cause what I say is real and 
true... true unto my heart and soul.
Sweet love don't pass me by on this lonely night i gaze into the moon and the 
glisten stars that shines so bright in the mid-night sky
hoping and praying that this love we share just 
don't pass me by.

war of good and evil

The road is rough 
Even though I may seem tough
My soul purpose and strength comes from above
He showers me with good grace and love, but is it enough?
Guardian angel on my shoulder telling me to turn right,
But ignorance makes you blind to heavens might, the
gates of hell are now in sight
its time to fight
for the light of the heavens upon us
shines so bright

Had I not said so

their deed
Your deed will not
remain impunished
You had better

If every day were a

four times a year 
You will wither, too

Everyone's loss is

The ones I lost have

The one staying

The gone one becomes
Had I not told you
to note that

Think not, that,
because my eye does
not see, I know not
about your state
Dark news travels
fast, good news
about you never
comes around
Have I not said, you
will suffer?

Everything existing
in this universe
will die
Only love is
Thus, I will not die
The one lacking love
is dead
Had I not said so?

Before falling down
on the ground
As you are still on
your feet, like a
Before yearning for
Do not turn your
back on the
universe's secret:
If you fall down,
you will have no one
to pick you up
You will befriend
with satans
Had I not said so?

God witnesses
They forget the one
who forgets
Who does not have
mercy will not get
mercy from heaven
The universe becomes
(this) man's enemy
Had I not said so?

We drank from the
same water
What is it that
gives you poison,
and life to the
loving one
And when you asked
that, have I not,
smilingly, said to
I got love inside of
me, love!
Had I not said so?

Do not be far from
love and beloved
You will not scent
human's odor, you
will not even be
able to scent
Had I not said so?

If there is no love,
there is no faith
And you will not
even get your (good)
lot from man-kind.
Your departure is no
such thing
The place you leave
to makes the man an
You would knowingly
You will burn, you
will ignite

Drunk at the bar

One drink two drink three drink four
Shot after shot, bartender pours and pours
Drown me in my sorrows
Cocktails I need more 
Until I’m stumbling to the door
Or drunk passed out on the floor.
Erasing my memories
With every single sip
My body tingling, I’m flirting
With all the waiters on this shift
I’m mingling, I love 
All this attention that I get
But deep inside, I almost died
 I’m dangling off of a cliff.
I’m drinking I’m drinking
I’m dying with every sip
I’m crying I’m replying 
To these messages that I get
I’m drinking to ease my mind
I’m trying with every bit
One drink two drinks
Of Hawaiian Midori sips
But the waiters is going home
The bar starting to close
My memories is coming back
I don’t know how I’m a get home
I call a cab, he takes me away
I’m answering my phone
I tried to escape my memories
But my memories brought me back home.

Finding My Heart

Sometimes it makes me wonder,
Why is there no one for me to surrender.
Why being so intense has created trouble,
Why there is no one to make complicated thing subtle.

I wonder from being  
that  will my future be my present as now as I am swing.
No hearts to share,
It is something I would give a dare
Standing for someone  loving the only one
Is something I found in fairytails,
But in reality no one cares.

Oh heartless people!
Oh superficial creatures
Listen to the call of our heart,
Because there is someone who needs you from start.

Sometimes I wonder,
Why there is no one for me to surrender?
Has life made us wild?
Is there is only selfishness for what we do strive?
If there are feathers then why do we need knives

If there is love then how do I find none,
I see it is taken for granted by some.
I am in sorrow ,
Waiting for the love of tommorow,
Keeping my heart alive for the only one.
For the little crystal of love which I only want.

why have i been appointed with such an omen
It feels as if i am writing my own reqiuem
Everything i do feels like a mistake 
my prescence is not a present 
my life is no worth living for 
Could this be the end for me
Weather forecasting is not hard for me
Because every day is a sunless dark day 
My eyes are windows to this dark earth
And my mind is the frame
My heart is the glass
now my heartis on the floor 
all shattered and broken

We will survive

I've been so frightened since you went away
My heart has been lonely all the way
And when I'm alone I think of you
And all the things we went through

I believe we will find a way out of this 
dark and lonely place 
and we will meet face to face 

Nothing will go wrong because 
because we will be bold and strong 
and whatever the world my hold in 

we will fight for what is right

Over a lonely medow i lay
Moonlight flickers as the clouds pass
Dawn is to break soon still the fullmoon glows
Limelight calms the lonely hills
And I lay there alone in despair
In time the clouds abandon me
And there reveal themselves the twinkling stars
Pearls run down my cheeks
And glittering sky laughs
Winds follow me no more
Rustling leaves stop
Fast asleep the living souls 
Not a word from the tombstone
Shattering heart weeps alone
Losing its will to live
Emptiness is filling me
Loneliness keeps to haunt
Betrayal daggers piercing my back
Consciousness my only friend
Hanging rope greets me warm
'Final curtain call' it seems
But then blazing fire strikes east
And the judgement seens unfair
Grupping my fingers with anger
I stand tall telling myself
I need no one
I will numb my pain
I will make myself of stone
And walk the path alone

Whirls and swirls
Drooling out a chime 
Playing along the tined walls of my mind
Eyes in a twist brain in a knot 
What I memorize is not what they recall 
Think one can know me?
Look once more into my mind
Locks and docks
Stones and untamed bridges
knocking doors and screaming windows
All shatter once they are able
Everything goes without a second thought 
In this darken blue mass of an object lost
Clouding storm circle like waiting sharks
My mind, my thoughts, my heart all go with no beat and no flow to follow

dancing at odd intervals

I find myself
dancing alone
at odd intervals

I'm that girl 
the one 
with crazy dreams and a heart full of nails

I'm the girl no one knows
and if you listen real close
you might figure out this is all a dream

something make believe
I created
and if I erase myself out
will you put yourself in?

I'm sure you have all these lies to tell about my soul
and if you pay attention you could learn something
dancing with yourself at odd intervals you could be the person nobody knows.

What a beautiful dream

The miles of white line layout ahead in front of me,
Where it goes nobody knows.
It has no beginning, and has no end, There is freedom up ahead, or so I'm told.

With my eyes affixed ahead, and my foot to the floor,I fly headlong into the distance.
Where the future tells me lies, and the past offers no resistance.

 I see the lights of the city, a beautiful Mirage shining in the sunset.
But the more I want it, the faster I go, no comfort shall I find, and no closer does it get.

The mountains rise high out of the desert floor, like a majestic castle of old.
They stand quiet and alone for all time, neither being bought or sold.

Time has worn away at them, and soon they will flow away to the sea.
For they will never be remembered, just a long forgotten memory.

 With no family and friends left to be found, everybody just disappears into the dust.
Everything I have just fades into the sunset, the life I have I no longer lust.

What my friends fail to see, and my dearest love does not understand,That my heart feels so empty, like a lonely shell lying upon the shifting sands.

I speak truth to every body I see, but lies to myself are all I  am worth,
The greatest lie that has ever been told, started on the day of my birth.

where were you daddy

Where Were You Daddy
where were you when I was all alone
why weren't you here after I begged you to come home
how could you leave me here with her, you were all I had
I had enough people to hurt me
I needed my dad

you promised you'll always be here to pick me up when I'll fall
you told me if I ever needed anything,
all I had to do was call
I must have called you a million times each day
I just needed to hear your voice
I needed to know you were okay
but you didn't even answer,
you didn't even say good-bye
I guess you were too drunk to remember about me
or maybe you were just too high

I needed you, Daddy,
I needed you to love me more
but you weren't thinking about me
when you walked out that door into the bars 
dad you can see my permanent scars
always and forever is what you always say 
will i have to wait my whole life to ever see that day 

it's sad that you did what you told me any other guy would
if my own dad couldn't love me
I don't see how any guy could

I'm disappointed in  you because you left me here with no one
even now you have apologized for everything you've done
you say I should  forgive you, and dad i want you to know that i have 
but just remember this...
who stuck by you right or wrong,
wasn't it me?

just like the typical guy you couldn't love me or appreciate the things I did
I don't even know who you are anymore 
you're not the man I looked up to as a kid

I want him back, I want my dad!!
don't you see? nothing else mattered,
you were all I really  ever had
you were the only one who put me first before everything else
we were a team, Dad
how could you leave me here by myself?

since the first day you left, there's been this space I've so desperately trying to fill
no one understands anymore and these cuts are the only way I numb the pain I feel
I found a way to fill the space, but it's only temporary
they can't erase the pain I've been through
you said I'll always be your baby
Dad, what did I do?!
These boys can't take the insecurities you caused
no matter what they do or say
you were supposed to be here, Daddy,
to take the hurt away

I just want everything to be like it was before you decided it was easier to leave,
before you forgot all the things you promised,
before your drugs meant more to you than me,

I just wish this would all stop,
I wish I could make it all okay
I can't forget all those years ago
I still blame myself, I should've made you stay
but you should have known better
I would never have wanted you to go
you were my protector, Daddy
you weren't supposed to hurt me; you were suppose to be my hero
but you did hurt me, Dad, and you can't take it back
it'll never be the same
I've become so insecure but  you're not  the only one to blame
even now you realize you were wrong and come home tonight
it's done so much damage trying to fill that space
nothing you do will ever make it right  

dad i love you always and a day ill still listen to what you have to say 
i have learnt so much while you've been gone and as you know a lot of it is thanks to mom 
but i'm willing to start a new but dad my decision only depends on you!

Zephyr Wind

Around me all my eyes can see
Beyond the ruins of tomorrow
confused and lonely people plea
Drowning in a sea of sorrow.

Every head is lifted high
Facing towards eclectic suns
Grasping at the shallow sigh
Hiding with the lonely ones.

Inside the martial law begins
Judges have no self respect
Killed her with the empty tins
Liberty swore to protect.

More laws are made for terrorists
No one even says a word
Overtly fearful catalysts
Promised danger is inferred.

Questioning is not allowed
Remember that you patriot
Stay the course follow the crowd
Thankful for the things you got.

Under all the false pretenses
Valued in some greedy hands
Washington still shocks my senses
Xenophobes, their heads in sands.
Yesterday the breeze blew free-
Zephyr wind, come back for me.

Walking with my demons

Before dawn my thoughts roam,
As day breaks my heart sleeps,
Thoughts of you, thoughts of home,
Coincide with my heart beats,
The malady of my soul,
The woe of my heart,
Now half once whole,
Consumed by the dark,
	As I walk with my demons,
Day after day my eyes grow cold,
My heart continues to freeze,
As I travel a darkened road,
I walk through a haunting breeze,
Overshadowed by the moonbeams,
Lost among the stars that I follow,
Faced with my hopeless dreams,
I feel myself become hollow,
	As I walk with my demons,
Surrounded by my nightmares,
The echoes of the past haunting me,
Confronted by cold dark stares,
Sorrows chuckle keeps taunting me,
Giving into the death of light,
Falling into the abyss of despair,
My heart is conflicted by this plight,
For I feel my soul start to tare,
	As I walk with my demons,
I become numb to my surroundings,
Oblivious of my shame,
This life is beyond confounding,
For it’s hard to live with the pain,
	Of walking with my demons

For my husband

Will you be happy if I am gone?
Will you be happy if I leave you?
No matter how it hurts, no matter how bad it is
If this is the only way to see you smile again, I will….

I have tried to apologize, and  say “I’m so sorry”
I  have tried to hug you , but you push me away.
Day by day,  softly, it’s killing me,
I am just like a wind , I exist  but you couldn’t  see.

I know it’s my fault that’s why I am suffering
It’s me who failed you once again and the reason for crying
Please talk to me, please tell me honestly
Do we still have a chance or I am now  a nobody?

Sorry for causing you too much pain
Sorry for my mistakes and doing it all over again
I will not swear or give you false promises again
But please give me a chance and start all over again.

But if by chance you choose to leave me
And ask me to let you go
I will try to accept it and feel the pain
I will just close my eyes when you walk away.

Noticeably Narcissistic

Audacious individuals lack sound judgment
Blow-hard opinions vastly inflates ego
Confidence is exceedingly overwhelming
Delusions of grandeur are clearly evident
Engaged in destructive selfish behavior
Factitious self-importance dilutes potential
Gratuitous toxic actions contaminate the collective consciousness
Hedonistic mindset hinders humanity

Follow Your Dreams

Things may be tough along the way,
there's not much that I can say.
What to do, Where to go?
There's all this open road.
You wanna travel? then get out and go,
no one's gonna tell you "NO".
Do your best and follow your dreams,
But its not gonna be all that easy.
Life is rough and times are hard,
They try to say "you wont get very far"
"You need this, and you gotta have that,
You're not gonna make it, if you have no cash."
There will be times when ya dont have a penny to pay,
Just listen to your heart and dont go astray.
Follow your own path and you'll make your way.
Even though things are rough right now,
Stay positive and they will work out.
Do your best and follow your dreams,
But its not gonna be all that easy.
Life is rough and times are hard,
They try to say "you wont get very far"
"You need this, and you gotta have that,
You're not gonna make it, if you have no cash."
Dont listen to what they say,
They just want you to go THEIR way.
