My Dead Thoughts!

I turned to see
If you were still behind
But you were gone.

A glimpse of your face
I was missing so much
My wet eyes, a little whisper.
Why were you gone?
Why did I look back?
And that’s all for nothing.

You were an apparition,
My dead thoughts
I know you,
I feel you moving away
Through the ground below my feet.
And you know me,
When the time comes
You will feel me coming
Up the street from miles away.
I promise that soon I will die.
Izraeel may take my soul
From my body
So it [my soul] will continue
To sing songs about you.

So I Learned My Lessons!

I learned fine difference between
Holding a hand and chaining a soul
I learned your relation
Doesn’t mean security
And I learned why should I always lean?

A while before I begin to learn
That your kisses aren’t real
Your surprises aren’t promises
I began to accept my defeats
With my head up and eyes ahead

I learned to build my soul
I started digging the ground
For my new plans to build a road
Our future had a way
Of falling down in the mid flight

After a while I learned
That even sunshine burns
If you get too much
Then I started planting a garden
To decorate my own soul
Instead of waiting for you
To come and bring some flowers

Last but not least, I learned
That I really can endure
But I know I’m really strong
My soul really worths
With your every goodbye, I learned!

I never got so hurt
Even when, one of my siblings said
He is a lustful guy.

But I almost died
And sunk in barrage of shame
When you called me a lustful boy.
