Stuck on this bed

Heart suffering hundred degree burns

It feels ugly but I know it’s just for a time

From burnt endings; new beginnings arise.

Living in my past

Is driving me crazy

Starting from a blank page

Could be terribly upsetting

But I’ll pack the pieces

And burn them up

Start from the ashes

All those pains and heart aches

From my past often appearing

Like ghost flits

Almost pulling me under

So I am gathering together

The pictures, letters, cards and dried roses

Throwing them into this furnace

I will start again

From the ashes!

This road I take
Should it lead me back or forth?
I fear
Cos the journey of life
Comes with no directions
The decisions of our heart
Sometimes move us to delight or despair
Rough, bumpy, tough it may be
But the rose is fairest when it’s budding new
Hope is brightest when dawns from fear
A new day will come
And this will be gone

Now I see a light
Yes a light comes forth
When all hope is lost
Faith or fate, fury or fear; we choose
Then we’ve reached the crux of our lives

This I know

Not so long ago

Met I a butterfly

Beautifully perched on my window glass

Brought to eye a tear I dry

Every waking moment

Was time spent with my friend

The butterfly of morning light

Colours of great interest

So fragile; so magnificent

Enchanted butterfly!

What stories you tell

On your rainbow wings -

A crawly caterpillar

To a stagnant pupa

Now an aerodynamic spell

Your flutters; gust of life

You are me -

A reflection of change

My heart, it beats
to a song
You and I understand
We can't hear it yet
but one day we will
Till then we dance
sometimes alone
sometimes together

When you say your heart breaks
the beat doesn't stop
the music does

Let's continue this dance
if not together,
My heart beats for me..
For you and others..
It's mine,..yours
and theirs
You know..don't you?

When I say my heart breaks
nothing stops except my beat
you're lost in the rhythm of the song
you dance me out

When We both are gone
the beat will beat
to the same song
..a different tune.

I have been down, down to the floor

Since you walked out the door

I wish you were here to make me smile

But it's too late;you've gone more than a mile

You broke my heart with no qualms

Though I would have welcomed you with open arms


Now that's all but a lie

'Cos you were such a BUM!

Bet you didn't know that...

I know I had tendencies of feeling insecure

That was when I was still yours

I knew the things you did in your car

All those secrets that made you feel like a star

You thought you were strong and I, weak

You had me in too deep

Well, I have moved on

And it's bad news for you 

Yeah it is ur friend

You wouldn't have guessed....

Can we sing the lullabies

as we sail down River Memory;

tickle the armpit of Venus,

play like baby's first day out

ride the arch of rainbow

splashing its colors.

Can we be joined in the

symmetrical circle of hope

that love might endure our
