I see the way you look at me.

40 lashes of judgment from your perfected pupils,
While I stand above my flaws
Crumpled by an abusive bliss

But, what do you care?

All you hear are my reckless choices
All you see are one-sided dislikes
When I chose to be above the screams
Of a distilled kiss

All you will remember is how I couldn’t find the strength
To be a better Man
To do the right thing

All you will know, whenever I find the strength to smile
Is the flaccidity in my lyrical girth


You took my voice.
But, you really didn’t.

Your backhanded compliment reeks
Of misguided omnipotence

And I
Will remember how you looked at me
When I fell, I fell
When I stood tall
Above the reaches of Hell

For I am the weight of 1000 lies
Your laughter upon my cries
Will seep unto your crackling, perfumed prayer
Spraying for validated whispers
To justify your empty smile

While my sins slowly combust
As I find my way home
Your two-faced breaths shall become
My end poem

Take time

I dont know where to start
I dont even know what to say
I even dont know how to put these words in a phrase
Yet one thins is for sure, our friendship is made not by accidents but by choice we made and faith.

Cheers to the night that we are one and for mornings what we are not in bind
Holy ghost filled our holes and understanding for each one is made from time to time.

Respect we have for each one cannot be answered nor questioned by anyone
Coz we find ourselves before we bind and share happiness, sorrows and everyhing under the sun.

Backhanded compliment always surrounds us from time to time
Yet we care not for we admit that sometimes, somehow, our friends knows us more even before time.

So thank you from me and for everybody, for sharing joy and pain to where we stand.
