That Kind Of Woman

To he that I’ll love

I can’t wait to feel that love

I don’t mind whenever it is

As long as I’m with you

We could avoid the sea

Just for you

And follow the yellow bricks

Wherever it leads

Fiji,Bora Bora

Wherever it is

We could fly across oceans

Yes we will afford it

Save up,pack our bags

Pitch our tents on an island

As long as I’m with you

I can’t wait to meet you

To prove my love for you

With all that i am

I’ll be that kind of woman

I know!

This is a sort of reply to this poem.

Torn

It’s been a while
I felt this love
When I’m around you
I feel so vulnerable
My sensibility flies out of the window
You’re too good to be true
I can’t help
But build a wall
I don’t think I’m ready
To face this anymore
My heart is willing
But my flesh is holding back
I want to take this chance
I really do
But I’m torn
I can’t take the risk
Why does love
Have to be this hard?
Why can’t it
Have a smooth sail?
Why does it
Have to hurt so much?
But I’m gonna try
My heart is willing
To give it a shot
It’s been a while
I’m gonna take the chance
I wanna laugh again
Play pranks and giggle
Throw tantrums and banters
And just exale in the comfort of your arms.

P.S: It’s been a while. Long overdue. I feel like I lost my vibe so I went into my archives. It brought back emotions and this inspiration. Tomi’s poem also helped. I hope this continues.

Overwhelm

Listen to my utterance
Let the rhythm revel you
Lift and set you on a platform
Be the Connosieur of my deeds
Give a shrewd judgement
And drift not to the wind of onslaught

Let the waves of reprimand
Be overshadowed by my aura
My endearing presence
Set you on a staggering motion
And leave you with an uncanny notion

Because my forte has been reputed to be overwhelming.

A Conceived Reality

The aura of heartbreak
Was just beginning to wear off
When his eyes met mine
And lulled my senses.

My staggering emotions took the center stage
But he embodied such gentleness
And groped his way through

My quirks took the better part of me
But he turned a blind eye
And wrapped me in his huge arms

As we slow danced
Moving to the rhythm of the music
And living for the moment
His sotto voce lingered in my ears leaving a lasting impression

He listened to my shaky uttrances and reveled in them
As a connossieur of my deeds, his fondness clouded his judgement

My fastidious nature gave way to vulnerability when his fingers touched mine

Not in my wildest imaginations would I have ever envisaged such ardour.

If this is a dream I refuse to wake up because my reality is no way synonymous to this.

Distress

As we move to the sound of music

Locked in each other’s eyes

Taking a step at a time

With the world at our feet

Scrutinizing every move we make

But warped in thoughts

Groping our way through

Showcasing a bland smile

Because deep down in our hearts

We long for serenity.

Food For Thought

Not — How did he die?
But — How did he live?
These are the units to measure the worth of a man, regardless of birth.

Not — What was his station
But — Had he a heart?
And — How did he play his God-given part?
Was he ever ready with a word of good cheer, to bring back a smile, to banish a tear?

Not — What was his shrine?
Nor — What was his creed?
But — Had he befriended those really in need?
Not — What did the sketch in the newspaper say?
But — How many were sorry when he passed away?

When Everything Else Fails….

When everything else fails
Where do we turn to?
When life becomes a rollercoaster
Who do we lean on?
When optimisim takes a back seat
How do we cope?
When our worst fears catch up with us
How do we bounce back?

Deep inside the answers are there
There’s an urge to reach out
To return to our origin
But doubt, uncertainty
Has taken the better part of us
What then do we do?

Relax and live on
Or fight to recover and be restored
Easier said than done.
Enthusiasm’s been jaded
Perception’s in a fix
Everything just seems hazy
What ifs and what nots

Life continues…

P.S: Does any of this make sense? Just asking. I just wrote as the words came. Wasn’t so bothered about the sequence. -___-

One Year Later

Seems like yesterday
When we broke the ties
That we thought would last forever
All the laughters and giggles
Gave way to bickers and pet peeves
With constant fumes
The fondness
Gradually went into extinction
Not even a fragment
Of our bond remains
All we have left
Are just traces of memories here and there
That thought alone
Makes me weep
So i just lock them
In one of the boxes of my heart
Awaiting the day
We’d finally be allies again.

Downcast.

Hey you,
Been a minute
Yeah
Didn’t wanna bother you
Buh
This couldn’t wait
It’s been quite lonely around here
Really tried to distract myself
Got a job
Got involved
Buh in the midst of all
The crave for your warm embrace weakened me
There’s so much buzz around here
Buh nothing seems to exhilarate me
It feels like the world has turned it’s back
And has moved on without me
It only felt right to return
To the only thing that seems sane right now
I’d do anything to have you right here
Just in my company
Nothing more
No vocals
No expressions
Just your aura
Because everything just fades away
And nothing else matters
As long as i’m with you.

P.S: This doesn't necessarily apply to me.

A Tale.

He had the most beautiful pair of brown eyes
i had ever seen
With the right complexion to complement them
The hot-dog scent he had in the mornings
made him even more adorable
A second didn’t pass without his thought of me
Made me wish his cell phone was glued to his ears
His subtle voice woke me up at dawn
Mine wasn’t even close
As i had to feign it.
At night, we would sit, watch the stars
And just enjoy each other’s company.
For a second, i almost got carried away
Was too good to be true
Until reality dawned on me…

He wasn’t saved.
