Chip Chip, Chop Away

Chip chip,
Chop away
Piece by piece
Watch them fall away
Down down,
Smooth like a feather
To the ground they go
As gravity pulls
Like a meteor they shoot straight down
With no obstacles on the way
Impact is fatal
Destruction is inevitable.
Chip chip,
Chop away
Piece by piece
The hole gets bigger by day
So little remains
Barely noticeable
The light almost gone.
Standing from afar
I watch as you chop away
Without mercy
I watch as you wrought your worst
Taking all you can get.
Chip chip,
Chop away
Like a piece of wood
You chop the pieces off
Until it is worn and useless
The remains to be discarded.
Chip Chip,
Chop away-

Take a Breath

Close your eyes

Take a breath

Open your arms

Reach out to the world

You will find what

You have been looking for.

Don’t be afraid

Of the road ahead of you

There are obstacles

Many times you will fall

Just look up and you

will find me

I’ll be there to lift you up

Just reach out

And I’ll be there

Close your eyes

Take a breath

Don’t be afraid to call out

There’s a friend waiting for you

Just call out

Close your eyes

Take a breath.

Scary, Terrifying, Absolutely

There is this crazy, scary, terrifying thing called Love.
It comes out of nowhere.
Takes a hold of you without hesitation
Throws you against the wall and holds you there
It has no warning
And definitely no Mercy.
It does not choose who is the victim
You’ll never see it coming,
It’s not that easy.

Somehow it has a way of just happening,
and no matter how hard you try to fight it.
The weird part is that the harder you fight,
the more it takes a hold of you.
It will take you up and then bring you down just as fast,
and you might have thought the up was amazing
but oh,
you cannot begin to fathom how completely horrifying the down is

You may want to run,
Yet even the other end of the world will not be able to save you
You might wanna rip out your own heart
Just to make the suffering go away
But the reality remains,
The more you fight it,
The deeper you fall
until at some point you realize
There is nothing left to fight

Like a Lucky Blessing

The day I met you was like luck
The kind of luck that comes with like a blessing
My day began like any other
but with time I felt like nothing
Empty and devoid of any emotions
I did not want to be like that
Nor did I welcome the idea of going anywhere
But a force pulled me like a magnet
Had I not met you everything would have been like before
Empty and devoid of any emotions
But like I said
Meeting you was like luck
The kind of luck that comes with like a blessing
Tomorrow I will tell you
How lucky I have been
How blessed I am
To have someone like you
As part of my life.
It certainly is like a lucky blessing.

Comfortable Within

We lie, we lie, and we lie
We look into each others’ eyes
And we lie
We smile into eachers’ face
And we lie
We hug and shake hands
And still we lie

Every day we meet
We lie
Every time we talk
We lie
Day after day
We lie, and still we lie

We go home and we think
Tomorrow is another lie
We’ll meet, talk, touch, laugh
And then lie some more

Everyday is a lie
Because you and I
Have always been a lie.

Listen To Me

I wish I knew where to begin

I wish I knew if you’ll still let me in

I’ve tried so hard to make you see

To make you believe in my words

Yet I’ve become like a pearl at the bottom of the sea

But no, I do not have its beauty

Nor its ability for rarety

Merely the unluckiness of being lost.

I would give everything just for you

To be able to look into your eyes once again.

I’m asking you not to lock me out

To just give me this one chance to explain

The words that are coming out of my mouth.

Do not walk away and turn your back on me

Oh, can’t you see you are the only one with a key

That would open my cage and set me free.

Hear the words that I have to say

Look into my eyes and see the truth that lies there

You know I never wanted things this way

But life to me didn’t play fair

It robbed me of you and your love

Just turn around and look at me

I am nothing without you

I can not stand and you know that is true

You are my strength, my happiness

You are my shield and comfort

Do not leave me undiscovered

Do not let me get lost

Do not let me become a ghost.

Hold me.

Help me.

Save me.

I need you because I cannot fathom life without you.
