The Poet

A poet with a sacred curse
Writing in pain with his veins
Feeling his pulse in the pages
Laughing at the void in his bloodstream
Fading away with pride
To the verse he craved for

Let's talk about her

Those asleep should wake
Those on journey should take a break
Not because of me but for their sake
She is the reason they all have to stay awake
Her beauty alone will make your heart ache
The sound of her voice is original not fake
She's so religious nothing could make her heart shake
Flattery doesn't work on her even if she's taken to a lake
Believe me her smile is more than a birthday cake
Now tell me doesn't she worth the wake?

He

I became a strange person
No one comprehends
I became a beacon
No one feel my sympathy
Except He!
He who never lose a smile
He who see beauty in every breath
He who mend the hole of the heart
He who walks up to me and embrace my flaws
He! He!! He's my friend
The perfect friend
Happy Birthday friend
Flutter like the dove
And enter the ocean of eternal happiness

Payback

Welcome to the house of card
Where guards don't guard
Relax you won't get bored
Just a little bald
You don't need to be mad
After all it began with your dad
When I was a lost lad
So cruel were his hand
That every pain received is like a scorched land
Don't try to be sad
You gonna make my heart hard
He thinks he own everything he had
Like a magician with a wand
But I'm the one who gets laid
While he gets paid
Everyone thinks I'm bad
They forgot he's the one with the callous pad
Well what goes around comes around they say
Now luck has made you come my way
Don't worry everything is gonna be ready without delay
Oh bae the gown is done for the yay
Let's get married right away
Though he didn't approve the day
Well who cares for his say

Love

Love can't be decided with the flow of time
But it's the best thing that has ever happened to us
Love can't be explained in words
But can be kept within our heart
Love can't be conquered with power
But can be enslaved at the gaze of your eyes
Hate is a poison
Jealousy is the henchman
But love is the remedy
How blessed we aren't of the enemy
