Darling, they don't know your story;
They simply like to assume and believe
That what they presume is the truth.

my heart starts to beat
every time and every meet,
when words fail to convey my feelings,
when my thoughts and yours,
by chance, begin to sync.

That paradise you lost?
You can built it back up,
Brick by little brick;
A dash of hope
And a bagful of prayers
From the ones
Who love you the most!

crave the nearness of you.
I used to swallow my pain,
drowning the words
that threatened
to slap you with shame.
I still do--
for I now choose the silence
that pervades.
Peace amid the surging rain.

Mayhap, it's because the nights
get inundated with a deafening lull
that demands you to recall
the fleeting instances filled with joy--
those moments spent together,
when we were naively young
and utterly consumed
by the wondrous symbiosis of you and I.
The present world is so cold
that naught else gets to reflect
those precious memories of old;
you aren't here with me
and nothing has meaning anymore.

...And if I could tear down these pages
that were written during my absence,
you'll comprehend the depth
of these persistent, irking tears.
A cupful of love to soothe the mistake;
a shot full of cries to stop the pain.
Beloved, a million terrors fill the skies;
yet the sun's still up there
and it's about to shine.
My devotion springs eternal
and I won't ever say goodbye.

Children frolicking under the rain,
Laughing and dancing like they're insane;
Amid crippling disease and hunger,
Hearts bloom with hope and prayer;
The sky attempts to cleanse the land,
Bathing everyone with its tears.

Love what you do;
If you cannot love it,
Don't do it.

People cry and scream
When pinions prick their skin,
Yet they remain mute
As they watch others bleed.
