Poetry Brought Us Closer

She writes as I do,
Our verses seemingly intertwine,
Our subject of choice so similar,
Filled with morose and sorrow,
Of how our "perfect" and "meant to be" other half,
Is gone.

Blown with the wind,
They are gone,
Attracted to the typical,
The so stereotypical jocks,
or cheerleaders, princes
and princesses.

We convince ourselves,
For a period of time,
That they will soon open their eyes,
and see the imperfection stood before them,
grace us with their presence,
perfect us with their ways.

But it will never happen,
Leading us to this feeling,
Of self healing.

As our hands goes into a trance,
Our soul whispers the words,
Deviating the typical,
Painting a beautiful picture,
Which only you and I can see.

While others are so scared,
so insecure to let their,
pure emotions,
drip from their very souls,
we stand here,
labeled as emotionally unstable,
yet being the only ones,
in touch with emotions.

Like a secret language,
we can communicate,
speak of our feelings freely,
Poetry brought us closer.


Gravity is a force,
Force of attraction pulling,
Pulling two bodies closer,
Bigger body, greater gravity,
Greater gravity, arises attraction.

You can't see it,
You can't touch it,
The effect is evident,
The impact, indisputable.

But is it just a physical force?
Can it explain more?

It keeps your form on the ground, yes,
Does it stop dreamers from dreaming?
Does it anchor your ardor?

Could gravity explain the constant, routine,
Bouncing from one person to another?

As you keep floating,
Liking one person, finding another,
Slowly transition, to the next,
Next biggest star in your sight.

As you orbit around your favourite,
Another one shines in the distance,
Most difficult to escape the apogee,
Yet so easy to fall into the other.

I'm a lost satellite roaming the galaxy,
Traveling at a constant speed, in search of harmony.


"You Be The Anchor That Keeps My Feet On The Ground, I'll Be The Wings That Keep Your Heart In The Clouds"

Baby It's You

Baby, it’s you,
You are the reason I smile,
Every day, every second,
You turn my frown into a laugh,
You make my world spin upside down,
You are the air I breathe,
The reason I live,
Without you,
There’d be no me.

Your smile,
It makes me believe,
Believe that one day,
I can call you my own.
One day,
I can call you home,
So mesmerising, so sweet,
It makes me feel complete.

I’ve never met someone like you,
Never felt a love more true,
I wish we could be together, forever,
Complete with tears, smiles, laughter.
You make me feel so special, so lucky,
When you're with me, in my arms,
Baby, It’s you...


You are perfect,
From my eyes, you are beautiful,
You make me fall in love with you,
With your every step,
I can't stop thinking about you,
I can't imagine living my life without your sweet love.

Please don't leave me,
I won't be able to face it all,
Only with you, I am able to,
You are my soul,
My heart,
My life, You complete me,
My love, that's what you are to me,


You take my hand,
When I'm weak and broken,
You whisper words that dissolve all my greatest regrets.
That's what you are to me…

Love is like Air

Love is like air,

You can’t see it,

You can’t feel it,

But you can see the effect it has on people,

It keeps them living,

It keeps them breathing,

Without it,

We’ll suffocate,

Love is like air,

There is not enough of it in this world...

I Love You

I wake up,
With the sun on my face,
And i wonder,
Why do your eyes keep appearing in my dreams?,
Those beautiful, blue eyes..
Are the only thing I see,
When I close my eyes,
Trying to get a goodnight's sleep,
Maybe it's the minds way,
Of keeping a part of your loved ones,
When they are,
From your heart.
Everyday I wonder.. Why?

I wish,
Upon a bright star,
That lights up the dark, night sky,
That one day,
We shall meet,
I will make you laugh.
Dance in the rain.
Comfort you when you're sad.
Hug you and never let go.
I will be there for you when you're hurt..
Emotionally or Physically..
I will wipe your tears..
Kiss you better,
And carry you home,
Everyday I wish.. Upon a bright star.

I ask myself,
Am I good enough for you?
Should I just forget ever being able to call you mine?
Should I give up?
And the answer will always stay the same,
Everytime I ask those questions,
The answer will always be a No.
Because I believe..
That you should never give up on,
The person that,
Is constantly in your mind,

I do the things I do
I do them for you..

There's only one word to describe this feeling.


I love you.

A Something That Could Mean Anything

WARNING - Written by a hopeless romantic. Long attention span recommended. Completely fictional, any relevance to individuals dead or alive is a mere coincidence ;)


Tonight everything was opened up. The smoke has cleared, leaving but yet another layer of foggy ambience. Tonight, she spoke the words which tried to detour my feelings and lead it to another path. Tonight, I write my story.

As most teenagers would know, life isn't about "once upon a time" stories and "happy ever after" endings. Usually, if not always, it ends in sweat, blood and tears. As we start to realise what life is all about, the need to turn the hands of time increases. Everything requires precise balance; social life, school life and love life.

Step into any high school and the social groups are evident. There are the jocks, the cheerleaders, the geeks, the nerds, the stoners, the skaters, the emo's, the punks, the goths, then there's me. Every school I've been to, I've never fit into any. More comfortable with me, myself, and I. Within this new school I float around like a lost fish, almost like that Dory character from Finding Nemo. "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming", she says. It's quite funny how we can learn so much from a cartoon character. So following a blue, cartoon fish's advice, I keep swimming through the tsunami of the social groups.

Work life. I will go no further. I don't want to, and I don't need to. Stressful enough just thinking about it. But it is fun, as long as you stay on task. So far, so very good.

And now, the love life. How complicated it is in my head. Hope writing this helps, if not, tough.
What would you do if you were in love with a person (Girl X), who didn't have any feelings for you (and had a boyfriend), and whose bestfriend (Girl Y) was in love with you? Just keep swimming, you say? If only it was that easy.

(Girl X) A girl so perfect in every way caught my attention ever since our eyes met. Her crystal blue eyes shine in the light and guides the path when it's dark. Soft, delicate hair frames her gorgeous face so flawlessly. Her smile like no other, delivers words like no other. I stand there astounded by her every movement. But yet, no acknowledgment of me. She excels in her studies, a social butterfly she is. So why would she notice me? I am but a mere speck of dust in her view. Slowly floating past and casually trying to catch her attention, but the wind just blows me away, further and further.

(Girl Y) Her bestfriend, my secret admirer less the secret. So deeply in love, with such a fool. I see her, in full perfection for me and for my needs. But my wants. That's a different story altogether. Her sorrow poems, but yet so majestic and filled with emotions still unable to evoke life within me. But she seems a virgin to life. She seems so unaware of all the troubles that could be caused and the troubles that already exists. But now I float to her, and bring upon her all her desires. The love I have for her bestfriend has transformed into nothing more than a noble friendship. Inversely proportional, the fondness for my secret admirer grows.

But tonight, she called (Girl X). As usual we delve into an utterly random conversation for two hours. I close my eyes and hear her voice speak, allowing me to dive into another dimension. Whilst two or three weeks ago, this surreal dimension would have been accompanied by limerence. But not anymore, I'll be glad to say. As we end our conversation about bananas torturing his mom with icing sugar (yes, we are cool) , I asked her if she has ever had feelings for me. Soon after I realise what a mistake that was.

Her reply to that was. Yes. Yes she did like me, quite a lot, once upon a time. When the weather was nice, and the grass was green, she liked me. I was pushed out of my surreal dimension as spirals spin around me. And I wake up. What? Why? When? How? Whaaat? As usual I over think and thoughts of "could-have-beens" scroll through my mind. So now what do I do?

Being inquisitive and always needing answers before believing something, I asked her to fill in the blanks. When did she like me? She says that she only just realized her extra unneeded feelings for me after she said yes to her present other half. Does she still like me? A little hesitant, but she said no. I asked whether that was a lie, and no. For some people out there, this would be bad news. But for me, I’m quite glad she said no. I had just gotten over my acute limerent emotions for her and transferred the feelings to her bestfriend. Then was not the time for her to tell me she likes me. I could tell there was something going a bit wrong between her and her boyfriend. She speaks to me more than she does to him. I’m one of the few she wants to talk to when she’s down, him being one she runs away from. The awkwardness is most obvious even to the oblivious. After I interrogated her and her past affection for me, I was drowned with even further thoughts. She started regretting ever telling me after noticing the effect it caused. I reassured her that I am always like this, always over thinking, and that by tomorrow I will be back to square one. I will be over her. I will...


The next day was normal, just how I had promised her it would be. Everything between us was normal. There were no discomfort and we joked around with our usual playful attitude. However, Girl Y and I had a random misunderstanding. I went around to my best friend’s house that day. It just so happens that my best friend is also my ex-girlfriend. Girl Y, being a very pessimist optimistic person assumes that I still like her, using a line I had said to her before against me. “Her bright blue eyes, an angel in disguise”. While I was at my bestfriend’s house, Girl Y sends me a text to pass a “Hello” to my blue eyed angel from her. I knew from there that something was wrong.

Later that day, I called Girl Y and we had our usual conversation of intense playful arguments. Then out of nowhere, she pops in a question. “Does she know?”, she asks. With a confused tone, my response to that was “Who? Know what?”. She replied with a cold and blunt, “Your bestfriend, does she know you still like her?”

By then, her assumptions were confirmed. We had a heart to heart about why she would think such a thing, a day after I confess that I have feelings for her. How could she think such, when we both knew that we liked each other, maybe not equally, but we both did. I had told her as soon as I broke up with the girl the reason as to why I did. That we thought it was better to remain good friends. Then I began to wonder. Wonder maybe she was making such assumptions to help her get over me. Maybe it was to stop herself from getting hurt any further by me. Maybe, she was just scared of me, and of us. If you look at the ghosts of my past relationships, I can tell you now I am a potential heartbreaker. Maybe that’s why.

Trying hard to convince her that my fondness for that other girl is no more, I asked my best friend to phone her up, and just talk to her. I tried hard to make it work. I wanted it to work. I didn’t want her to be hurt. However, she denied any communication with the outside world. Using her fake joyous voice, she would use an excuse that she was having a bath and she would call later. But she never did. I gave up and apologized to my best friend for involving her in everything. I realized that it might just make matters worse if I tried any further acts. I went to sleep that night hoping that when I wake everything will be cleared. I went to sleep to dream. And woke up the next day to realize that dream.

Today, I realised what I had to do to make my dream come true. Today, I left town. In search of anything, everything to broaden my knowledge and widen my view. I had enough of that place and finally got a chance to leave it all behind and hope the footprints will be blown away like the sand dunes of the desert. But today, she called. She said something. Those three words. Those three words came out of her mouth ever so magically, so loving. Being an irrational emotional, I write quite a lot of poems which are usually over exaggerated. I may write about love, and romance, but not for one second have I experienced "love". But for those three seconds it took to say those three short words, I felt it. Three short words that leaves a mark permanently. From her lips, I heard her say, I love you. Now, what do I do?

1234, Tell Me That You Love Me More

Last night,
I slept in a blanket of tears,
Thinking about my greatest fears,
I was so down and lonely,
Waiting for your words,
For anything that had to do with you,
To pick me up again,
Because I fell,
And couldn't get up,
I felt one by one,
Pieces of my heart,
Being picked off,
Leaving a permanent scar,
One, by, one, pieces, fell off,
Into your palms,
as you clench it so tight,
What's left is dysfunctional,
Useless, worthless,
You've got the rest,
But why,
This feeling should be dead,
You should have returned those pieces,
Where are they,
Why can't I find them,
Help me.

Truth is, I'm scared.
Someone who can turn my emotions completely upside down
is definitely someone who is special to me,
and whenever someone does that, it scares the hell out of me,
Knowing that they can control me at the tip of their fingertips,
You can make me happy, sad, worried, angry,
and all you have to do is say a couple of words,
It scares me...
And I don't think I'm completely over you,
I don't know why,
But these things I feel when I think about you,
I don't think it's normal for friends to have for one another.
I'm sorry.
I don't want to ruin your summer,
So I'm not sending you this.
You don't want to know,
you don't need to know.
I want you to know...
But I can't.
You told me you'll always be here,
But that might just be the problem.

Self Deception

These thoughts leave me,
And hopefully forever.

Weeks of self deception,
Lead to nothing,
I turned down everything going right in my life,
For a destroyed mindset.

Remind me never to do that again.

Oblivious Heartbreaker

Lies lies lies,
I've had enough,
Now it's time for goodbye,
This is where it gets tough.

You could fit two characters,
Maybe none, maybe both,
Oblivious, or a heartbreaker?
You choose, take an oath.

I wondered how someone could be so,
Oblivious to the obvious,
Like shooting an arrow from a crossbow,
You march so fearless,
Hit the bulls-eye with a deathblow.

Now as for the heartbreaker,
You say you know how he feels,
But yet you do the things you do,
Seriously, that's just fcking surreal.
You really do have no clue.

You say this is what they've done to you,
And for once, we have a mutual agreement,
You used to be so pure, so true,
You lived for the moment,
Give in to the others, you wouldn't.

I feel bad for blasting at you,
I really really do,
I just wanted you to know,
The real truth, and nothing but.

40 minutes,
Possibly our shortest conversation yet,
Ended with our end,
Like a game of Russian roulette...

"Look at me and forget what you know. I'm a heartless bitch", you said,
A confession, an empathic reasoning, or a final self realisation?

"Is this the end then?", he asked,
To which you replied,
"For now it is, I'm sorry".

Brick to Concrete

You are still the same body,
Smiling the same smile,
Same eyes that still confuse me,
But yet, a completely different person?

I don't know what it is,
Can't even begin to wonder,
Empty mind... all I know is,
I'm a complete disaster.

Grown a dependence on your voice,
Those sweet, sweet words you speak,
Genuine or not, still they ably penetrate,
Through my cores, leading me to my weak.

The white walls around me,
Turn orange, green, everything,
As you sneak into my dreams,
From your secret riddle,
I try to find a meaning.

Maybe what I search,
Is non-existent.

Wishful thinking yet again,
My dreams beckon me,
Back away from reality,
In my head,
a very different view I see.

Of the brick wall I encountered previously,
I found a door to the other side,
Now I face another,
Solid, concrete,
Access denied,
Please delete?

Maybe I should stop trying to figure you out,
And start figuring myself out.

Now Where Do I Go?

You injected me into a stream of consciousness,
As my fingers lost all control,
And my soul took over.

Life is a wheel,
That's not a cliche,
It's a statement, it is but raw truth,
My life always seems to be on the opposite to everyone else,
I'm always down when everyone's up,
And up when everyone's down.

Difference is, when I'm up,
I'm there for people who are down,
But now I'm down,
And I see no one?
Why? Where'd they all go?

Simple things, such insignificant moments,
Can lead to something like this,
One... Two... Three,
Wow, three people are pissed at me,
Because of what I did,
That insignificant gesture,
Leads to this.

Now, you tell me,
Where do I go?

Cus you know what?
I have no idea.

Im clueless,
I asked for help,
Sent out a signal fire,
But only my pillow and whistles of the wind,
Come for "rescue".

Maybe I should just go back to what I was before,
Less to think about,
More time to myself.

Who cares as long as I don't hurt anyone,
except myself.

An Empty Mystery

I don't know what to think anymore,
Who to listen to, my heart or my head,
A complete enigma is what you are,
Questions... should I stop, or just go ahead..?

You got me chasin' after you,
Then you put up a brick wall,
Crush and burn, split into two,
Ohwell, it is just a heart after all.

I had voices telling me not to,
But hey, I decided to risk it,
I knew it could turn out like World War 2,
Bruised and scarred, torn into bits.

With your magnetic enigma you pulled me in,
That beautiful, intriguing mystery,
But then you took everything and threw it in the bin,
And suddenly my world is so so cloudy.

You are so hard to understand,
I know there is so much more to you,
Your pretty face is but a mere brand,
Behind those eyes, that smile, lays the truth.

I know what it's like,
I know it's easier to hide,
But I really wanted to know,
Why do you always let them go?

You made my life "interesting",
But that is truly an understatement,
You made me wanna dance, and sing,
Until you said his name, and it all went silent.

The Longest Goodbye

I never thought we would come to this,
I thought we would define forever,
A mistake is what you say this is,
I say it's only for the better...

I tried forgetting you, [to get my life back],
Unaffected of what I've been through, [total wreck],
Why can't you let me be, [let me go],
I'm begging you please, I wanna start new [let me go].

You reappear with your angelic qualities,
Euphoria stirs up with your tender beauty.
You touch me with your delicate fingertips,
As you work this unknown force upon me,

But I can't play this game anymore,
Unless you find a remedy to a heart so sore.

So now we bid our longest goodbye,
As the wind blows and the trees sway,
We exchange words, what we had left to say,
Turn our backs, and distance away,
I can't help but to cry,
To the longest goodbye.

I know that apologies mean nothing,
But I'm sorry it had to end like this,
Limerence never is everlasting,
True love is the only eternal promise.

Walk away, from this cruel crime scene
Fly to the stars and reach your dream,
Forget me now, and dive in the ocean,
And think of us being only fiction

But now we bid our longest goodbye,
As the wind blows and the trees sway,
We exchange words, what we had left to say,
Turn our backs, and distance away,
I can't help but to cry,
To the longest goodbye.

Swinging On This Vine

I don't know how to start,
Unsure where it will end,
Shared between two is my heart,
Indecisiveness has become a trend.

I'm caught between two choices,
What I want and what I need,
I can't be in two different places,
Gotta stick with this unlawful creed.

I'm swinging on this vine,
Can't stop,
Starting at A, swinging to B,
Gravity's working against me now,
Please, just stop me now.

I went on this crazy ride,
Without knowing where it will go,
I guess it was just my pride,
Balancing out with my ego.

While one keeps me down on the ground,
And the other flies my heart to unimaginable places,
Two of the best choices I have found,
But two very different faces.

I'm swinging on this vine,
Can't stop,
Starting at A, swinging to B,
Gravity's working against me now,
Please, just stop me now.

My mind is filled with questions,
But not even one is answered,
Is this the fault of humans?
Heads held high, always looking forward.

Amidst the fog, so unclear is the view,
I don't know what to do, so confused,
A decision so unthinkable and taboo,
Gotta go to bed with both hearts unbruised.

I'm swinging on this vine,
Can't stop,
Starting at A, swinging to B,
Gravity's working against me now,
Please, just stop me now.

But maybe it's not a hard choice,
Just gotta close your eyes, and wait for that voice.

Eternal Memories

Flicking through albums,
Literally thousands of old pictures,
They come alive,
With memories, eternal memories,
Of happiness, sadness, joy, eternal memories.

On one page,
A picture of ones that have gone,
Turn the page,
A new life was born.

Oh, I miss them,
Never spoke to them much,
I was still a kid, No idea what was happening,
Everyone was crying, but nothing was registered in my mind,
I didn't know, I didn't know,
I'm sorry,
If only I could relive those times with you.

Then he was born,
Brought joy to the family,
He was the new prince,
The apple in everyone's eyes,
We were close, couldn't seperate us for anything,
In every picture,
We were hugging, laughing, smiling,
Oh, I miss those times.

They make memories from a hundred years ago,
Come alive again,
Like it happened yesterday.

Now, you know,
It's not just taking a camera and clicking a button,
It's more than that,
Much, much more,
It's all about capturing those magical moments,
Oh, amazing moments.

She's A Star that Drowned All The Others

This feeling,
It has been growing and growing,
Since the moment our eyes met,
It has never stopped growing.

Been questioned a million times,
I long to answer a different answer,
I've tried every possible way,
To hide it in the shadows,
Forever bury it,
But yet it manages to shine bright,
So, so bright.

There came a point,
When this feeling faded away,
But another peek at that gorgeous smile,
Another sound of her voice,
Another brief touch of her hands,
And the flame re-ignited,
A flame so strong,
Burning out everything around it,
To mere ash.

But a flame that strong,
So, powerful and bright,
Would see nothing,
In a barely glowing ember.

Next Please!

"Next Please!"

I looked at the clock,

Wondering when I can finally go,

And then she walked in,

With her radiant smile, her golden locks, and her charming eyes,

With a subtle stutter I say,

"Smile please, look at the camera"

She smiles,

Oh, she smiles such a beautiful smile,

My heart slowly melts, deforming into an unknown shape,

"Thank you, one more please"

She moans, "Ahh, why?"

And slowly that smile forms again,

It is framed by her beautiful face,

And I stood there,



"I hate getting pictures"

"Don't worry, you look beautiful in this picture"

Her eyes locks onto mine,

And the smile appears, yet again,

Oh, that glowing smile,

She steps away,

And soon vanishes,

Once again, I stare at the clock,

Wondering when I can finally go,

"Next Please!"

This Contagious Disease

The wind blows softly,
The stars shine bright,
I lay here blindly,
Waiting for my life to ignite.

The absence of feelings,
The lack of emotions,
So little that needs dealing,
So much is in ruins.

Waiting for something beautiful,
Waiting for the symptom
Waiting for the international symbol,
Of this Sickness,
Oh, when will it come?

It is a sickness,
A contagious disease,
But it does not fill you with greyness,
It does not cause the end of you,
It is a sickness that keeps you alive,
It keeps the sky bright,
The stars shining, the moon glowing,
It cures you from all your deepest problems,
And this sickness,
This sickness is called love.

Our Song

My heart beats fast,
In the sky, I see your face,
The bright night is with us,
The wind blows away our problems into space.

I pluck this acoustic guitar,
With hope that you will hear,
This wonderful melody I play from far,
Just to let go of all my fears.

And so I will,
Sing this song for you,
Even if a million listen,
This song is just for you.

Our life direction,
Reflected in the stars,
Shining, painting our love,
And there was our song.

This wonderful melody I play from far,
Just to let go of all my fears.

And so I will,
Sing this song for you,
Even if a million listen,
This song is just for you.

Our life direction,
Reflected in the stars,
Shining, drawing our love,
And there was our song.

Lost In Limerence

Let's fall in limerence,
Be it loving attachment or loving affection,
Let's all dive into this crazy state,
Experience intense joy, or extreme despair,
For it is worth it,
It can be life-changing, or life-shattering,
But it is worth it.

Limerence, takes time,
It could take seconds, hours, days,
Months, Years, Decades or maybe Centuries.
You could be one of the few lucky ones that experience it,
Or one of the few lucky ones that do not experience it,
Either way, you are lucky,
You are lucky, to have undergo-ed an experience others could only imagine of,
You are lucky, as you did not have to go through this crazy, crazy emotional state.

Let's fall in limerence,
When all you could think about is the her/him,
When all your dreams, and fantasies,
Are conquered by miraged illustrations,
Of a perfect love story,
Rescuing your princess/prince from a situation of peril,
Hoping, desiring, wishing for a reward.

Once you're in limerence,
Your soul travels out of your body,
Leaving it weak, faint, flaccid,
As confusion trembles in,
And the levels of hope and uncertainty are balanced.
You begin to experience a trance,
Where the little things are blown up,
Where a simple hand gesture, could be analysed endlessly,
In search of the truth.
Once you're in limerence,
You enter an enigmatic territory,
Confined by barricades,
Barricades which eliminate and destroy any desire of escaping,
Escaping limerence.

Let's all fall in limerence,
For it is worth it.

I am

When We Were Young

When we were young,
Fearless and free,
We were able to dream,
Dream a million different tales,
Dream that we can touch the sky,
Dream that we could save lives,
Dream about the future,
And trust it won't be crushed.

When we were young,
Adventurous and daring,
We were bold and dared to roam the world,
To roam the seven seas,
The seven continents,
And to explore this beautiful place,
We call Earth.

When we were young,
We didn't have to worry,
About tomorrow, about what's coming,
We didn't have to worry,
About emotions, or feelings.

Raised and taken cared of by our parents,
We grow to become,
Fearless, Free, Adventurous, Daring,
They taught us to be,
Dreamers, to never give up,
Without them,
We would still be kids,
Not caring about others' emotions, or feelings,
Not thinking ahead, thinking of the future,
We would be nowhere,
Without them.


Winter, winter,
is coming soon,
I wish it would come sooner,
I am waiting for,
that wonderful morning mist,
the gust of chilly wind,
the songs the birds sing,
Oh Winter,
Please come soon.

Winter here,
is unlike any other,
there is no snow,
there is no ice,
the atmosphere is just welcoming,
you can see people,
holding hands, laughing, smiling.
friends walk to school together,
lovers promenade down the beach,
with the sunset in the background,
moms and dads take their children for walks,
always there to keep them safe and warm.
It is a happy and cheerful time,
And I can't wait,
For Winter to come.

Stay Strong, Break Away

There’s always that time of your life,
When everything seems out of place,
Nothing seems right,
And it feels like your soul has left you.

You have no energy,
No reason,
No determination,
To live anymore.

It feels like everything you touch,
Everything you do, Everything you say,
Turns into a disaster,
And that’s when you have to remain strong.

Sometimes, the pressure is too hard,
And not everyone can take it,
Some take it out by anger,
Some by sitting alone and reminiscing,
Some people don’t let it show,
So that closed ones aren’t worried,
Because they don’t want attention,
They just want some time.

During these times,
it is important you stay strong,
You need a reason,
A determination,
And you will survive.
Without this,
Your soul will escape,
And fly,
Far, far away....
