little things there are, nothing big, is there?

If I could write a story,
It would be the greatest ever told.
I'd write about my daddy,
For he had a heart of gold.
My dad, he was no hero 
Known around this world.
He was everything to me, 
For I was his baby girl.
I'd write about the lessons.
He taught me right from wrong.
He instilled in me the values
That one day I'd be strong.
He taught me to face my fears,
Take each day as it comes,
For there are things that we can't change.
He would say what's done is done.
He would say hold your head up high,
Carry yourself with pride.
Thanks to him, I am somebody,
I will never run and hide.
If I could write a story,
It would be the greatest ever told.
I'd write about my daddy,
For he had a heart of g...

Standing still staring at my shadow,
Watching the calm stream flowing through the meadow.

Have imagined you sitting beside,
Maybe some day we would be one with the tide.

Lost in space, with no account of time,
No where to be, nothing to hide.

I would be one with the wind,
And flow in your direction.
You be the stream,
Flowing in perfection.

The flora be our witness,
The fauna be our mates,
The slowly setting sun,
And the moon officiates.

The Sun has bid his farewell,
The street lights would pave the way now,
I can hear the temple bells,
The scorching winds had said Chaow.

I see people returning home from work,
The star gazers are staring at the beautiful view,
Desperately wanting to open a Carlsberg.
Another day bade its Adieu.

I saw an auto-rickshaw through my window,
The children begging their father for a last ride on it,
The driver exhausted from his day's work, still agrees for the show.
If this isn't happiness, I don't know what is.

That guy is excited and nervous all at once,
His guys encouraging him to go for it,
The ring and a "YES", he jumped in a bounce,
If this isn't love, I don't know what is.

If little thi...

The weather was good,
The ride alone was bad,
The ride together was good enough.
The song the radio played,
And everything fell into place.
The smile, the memories all came back,
The nights, the talks all made a pass.
The weather was good,
The ride alone bad,
The ride together was good enough.
And everything fell into place.

I know we have never been to this road before,
Where comes a turn which diverts us to different shores.

For all the times we walked together holding hands,
On these roads and on different lands.

We loved, we fought , but we walked through them,
Still holding hands, through the dead sea we swam.

Now that the turn has arrived, we both have a choice,
Part our ways here, or listen to the tiny voice.

We could still walk together to the turn,
And create new lessons for us to learn.

But after every call, my cellphones saves the recording of you.

One day you're gonna see her,
But she won't be looking at you.
One day you'll feel like she did,
And you won't know what to do.

One day you're gonna love her,
But she won't feel the same.
One day you'll know how it feels
To have your blue skies turn to rain.

One day you'll dream of only her,
But she'll be dreaming of someone else.
One day she'll feel as if she's in heaven,
And you'll be feeling as if you're in hell.

One day you're gonna cry for her
The way she did for you.
One day you're going to miss her,
But she'll be loving someone new.

When your heart suddenly feels
light, excited, at ease.
When you feel like your heart just knows what to do
and your worries are far from your mind as are you.

You know that your mind will start chasing,
racing to hold down your heart.
After all, it is there to protect it,
ever from breaking apart.

But in order to keep your heart happy,
like a child, you must soften your hold.
You must let it run free for a while,
follow and see what unfolds.

Your heart is stronger than what you would think
and recovers at much greater speed,
so please just try, every once in a while,
to give it the freedom it needs.

Believe in your heart and embrace it,
and give it all that you've got.
Because whether it...

"Terrace"

Sitting here my memories wandered,
And at a point it stopped.
Giggles, laughter and all the voices I remembered.
The time that has long retired.

The time when I sat and listened distinctly,
The people who sat here and their mysteries,
The stars had us out-numbered,
The moon wasn't the only audience we had gathered.

My sister bitched about watching one, a night before,
I was forced to look up till you decided to show off.
A falling star never so beautiful, never so bright,
My spirits wanted to be one with the moonlight.

The night when we all got drunk trying alcohol for the first time,
One goes out of hand, the rest are sober for the night.
Some people blabbering their conf...

Dear Anxiety,

When they ask me what I am afraid of,
I lie. 

I can never expose you, 
never tell the truth about you 
for fear of speaking you into existence. 
You are my punisher and my captor,
my tormentor, my torturer.
You are the little voice inside of my head 
telling me bad, bad things to do to myself,
things I can't talk about
for fear I'll forget who I am and turn into you.

You tell me we are one and the same, but I am not you.
I would never hurt a child the way you have hurt me.
I would never tell a young girl she is unlovable,
or fat,
or ugly,
or crazy,
or worthless.

I would never tell her to carve ugly, terrible words into her body,
to hold a flame to her skin,
until she has bu...

I'm on my way.
They may ask me, "Where to?" 
Well, that I cannot say...
For even I have no clue.

I know it's rather far, 
For it has to make me whole. 
The road to the stars, 
The path to my soul. 

I must go alone, 
But I'll miss you all, believe me. 
I must travel into the unknown, 
I must sail all of the seas. 

You see, I've lost something of mine. 
It's special and grand...
Magnificent in its design. 
How I lost it is hard to understand. 

What did I lose? 
Well...I'm not exactly sure. 
Please, my confusion you must excuse...
I just know I must find a cure. 

I have a terrible disease, 
The name of it escapes me. 
But it stops your hair from blowing in the breeze.
It stops your heart fr...

It is time    
To rhyme a rhyme    
A poem I must write
Pen is poised
But so much noise
My mind is like a kite
Poetry    
As you shall see
For me is like a fight    
I insist 
I clench my fist
I better do this right
I try this
And I try that
I try with all my might
Coffee cup
Time's almost up
I will be up all night
No delay
It's due today
It's dawn, I see the light
Much time spent
Inelegant
Please understand my plight
So
Here ya go
You need to know
Submitted filled with fright

I could skip a heartbeat, and I would survive.
I could be in a car crash, and still be alive.
The clouds could fall out of the sky.
The oceans could disappear and all turn dry.

These things in life are all bad, I know, 
but there's far worse things, 
just thought you should know. 

Life would not be the same without someone like you,
You're there when I need you to help me through.
Through the good times and through the bad,
Be them happy or be them sad.

I don't have to be with you to know you're there.
We don't have to see each other to know that we care.
We could be apart for years upon end
and still remain the best of friends.

Life goes on, and people change,
And through it all, our fr...

The water was glistening while the dusk set on sky,
The cool breeze softly passed me by,
A million thoughts and a thousand memories,
Some days were of shame, some of glories.

The small girl dancing along with her doll,
A soul so pure, her cheeks butter ball.
As she danced her father followed her like a piper,
Looking through my window I jot down in my typewriter.

The girl danced away through the shore,
Her father trying to catch up with feet so sore,
She smiled at him and showed off her miniature,
Father was content with his little creature.

The night has approached again.
Only this time I ain't at gain.
The night sky that bought me peace,
Now has all the stories I am gonna miss.

There goes a shooting star,
Only this time it left a scar,
I wonder why the con artist would appear,
For all my wishes it has left me in despair.

This time I think I would let it pass,
For all my wishes have left me with distress,
Since all my wishes has led to war,
This time I had to be careful what I wish for!

Yet another day passes.
Over hills, twilight presses.
Moon already hung up high,
Welcoming nightfall.

Birds flying up to their nests,
Chirping time to rest.
Time for peace and stillness,
Time to restore our minds and bodies.

As all fades into night,
A hollow of absence of light.
Only twinkling lights of stars,
Sparkling in amid.

No drama or anger lingering,
No quarrels or crying interrupting,
Only songs of crickets,
Only dances of star lights.

Oh, what a pleasant time.
If only day were this tame,
It would bring peace.

In this life 
I once felt hope.
  I sometimes still believe in this, 
but each moment a little less.
  I feel abandoned in my despair, 
and it's difficult to repair.
  I get broken each day some more, 
keeping these emotions in my core.
  I find myself hiding behind this smile, 
the one that shows my denial.
  I have thoughts of lonesomeness, 
which no person should possess.
  I camouflage this so well;
it feels like I'm in hell.
  I hurt on the inside, 
trying to push these demons aside.
  I want something better, 
to not feel all this terror.
  I know it can be manageable; 
there are things that make life tolerable.
  I just cannot find the thrill, 
like when I was a child with a one dolla...
