Morning glory

You kiss me 
On the forehead
I am taken aback

Good morning

Candidly asking
Is everything 
Alright with your head?

Half awake
Half in the dream

I look away
I am a little shy

It is just 
It has been a while
Since someone did that
With a genuine smile.

Universal force

Sometimes, you just need to let things be in order for you to move on.

Taking sides

I am the friend in between
Who will be summoned to take a side
When one will be less than keen
And save the other from a landslide.

It will be unconceivable
For me to give unbiased answers
If one were to ask for advice and counsel
Presuming that I can pick a winner.

Though reluctant to take a step back
There is a reason why I am against
My judgement will never be on track
By getting involved in this case.

I am implicated in some way
Even if it is not my story to tell
With luck, it was Cupid I had to play
Because being a referee will not end well.

After the end

After the end
When the only image left
Is the idea of your scent;
And of what it reeks
Is your face in distress
When you claimed you were weak.
While details fade away
The agony is permanent
If only it were the other way
Flashbacks would not burden.

After the end
When the only new beginning
Is a heart that is broken;
And what to look forward to
Is the vision of a next life
When it will not kill me to love you.
While there are plenty of fish in the sea
The belief I found the One daunts me
 If I were to have one last plea
Flashbacks, for my sake, stop haunting me.

On your shoulders

Responsibility is more than doing the right thing; it is wanting to do it right.

A place of contrast

This is the place
Where hearts reunite
And others are torn apart.
Here searching
For a face in the mass
While others wave adieu
Through the thick window glass.
Finally when eyes meet
Their smile is so bright
But others will turn the corner
Clutching to one last sight.
Welcoming you with flowers
I will miss you, I murmur --
A place of contrast
Feelings digress
While others grow steadfast.
In those tears of joy 
Or heart-rending turmoil,
Whether you are coming in
Or it is me that is flying
Hugs feel the same
Because honesty
They both exclaim.
Hellos and Goodbyes
Our life is never on standby
It will always sting
When someone you love is leaving.
And like the glow of fireflies,
It is always a piece of paradise
To see you arriving.

Double entendre

A scar is not a reminder that you got hurt; but that you survived.

(Un)finished business

You and I got unfinished business
And until we settle this
I reckon I cannot care less.

I will be carrying on with my chores
But every thought of you
Pulls my boat back to the shore.

A hushed rage takes over my body
Since my scenarios
Are only the fruit of my fantasies.

It is hard to read between silences
All the answers I get
Are explanations made up in my head.

I am pinning for a slap from reality
A pain so intolerable
For  the numbness to empty out swiftly.

I would rather have my heart explode
My mind be in the clear
Than a riddle that I cannot decode.

You are aware that it will free me
Come set my iced heart on fire
That is the least you owe me. 


In the end, everything will be hindsight.

blood, sweat and tears

There is no need in dwelling on what if's if you tried your hardest when you had the opportunity.

For us

We came from the four corners of the world
And together, we were shaken to the core.
We came with the same expectations
But it was beyond our imagination.

Because during Time Warp, time stops;
A cosmic connection between all of us.
Our DJs tore the place down,
Rocketed us to heaven with their sound.

It is our love for electronic music --
We had to be there; and we felt it.
How can any of us ever forget?
The magic lives on as the sun sets.
