Gray and blurs
Shades that turn
Freckles and wrinkles
Aging is undeniable
Our years are unfathomable

Lonesomeness to togetherness
Let my selfishness so regress
Our hands shall meet
Pact is sweet
Our hearts are unwilling to show retreat

Grow weary and old
Eclipsing eyes yet bold
Letting scars turn into gold
Even ‘til memories can’t be recalled
Us together, was it foretold?

rhymes and reasons
lamentations and expressions
heart of hearts
sacred art
when lines fail
disguise the details

color and tone
words unsaid on the telephone
language of my weather
tongues on speechless paper
scenic and metaphorical
allegorical and whimsical

formed to impress
intended to digress
these fingers sculpting verses
with some touches and nuances
cuddle and mold like pottery
these ordinary days are but poetry.

Where shall we start
When the world is crumbling apart?
This strength is bickering like a tiny spark
Even so, take courage and take heart

Walk the earth in acres of sorrow
To face the day and a fickle tomorrow
No, don’t you give up fast
Even now, take good care of your heart

Caught up in this sound
This sound where my heart is found
Beating inside this love all around
Lost in your song where I am forever bound

Caught up in this sound
This sound where all noises drown
Breathing inside this melody
Your music calls and pulls me to your symphony
