You are my journey
You are my destination as well
Living without you is tough, O heart!
You are present in my prayers
Your absence tries me
You are necessary to complete me
Even if I have received only pain from you,
As I have received it from you, I will always seek you … More Oh my Heart!
If loving is gifting
I’m glad I got the best gift
It’s not for what you are or who are you
I know plenty of people with eyes closed
They don’t see you like I do
But darling, it’s what you are and who you are to me. … More I see you!
How can you see into my eyes like open doors?
Leading you down into my core
Waiting, paranoid about the depth of loneliness inside
Till you find me again and lead me back to you
Crying yet this emptiness won’t let it come through. … More Is your love strong enough to bring me to life?
Someone once asked me, ‘why penguin?’
And I asked, ‘why not?’
‘But I really want to know’
So I said, ‘Google it’.
He comes back days later and says,
‘Now I understand the mystery that is you a little better’.
‘Tell me’, I said.
‘It’s a metaphor, that’s why you don’t usually perform the way people expect you to. You’re spontaneous and owing no explanations. And even though you want to believe that you’re conventional, there’s nothing conforming about you. And those sharp contrast colors of the penguin signify this unconventional nature. On one hand, you can be tough. On the other, you can be loving’.
‘Hmm’, I looked uninterested.
I didn’t research all of those to know I liked the unique love of the penguins. Their loyalty through a lifetime endeared me. I didn’t need his lecture too.
‘And if you haven’t loved, let me prove to you that I’m worth your loyalty’, he said.
‘But I’m already happily spoken for’.
‘Touché’. … More Penguin
You distract me
But I’m distracted without you.
I don’t know how to focus
Baby, teach me how to.
‘Cause I’m standing still again
But if you love me
Just like the way that I love you
I wouldn’t mind a little comforting from you.
Why do I let you in my head?
I gotta go sometimes,
But you’re always on my mind. … More Helplessly
I was proud of my heart
Until I realized it was too weak for love
I’m no warrior for love,
Even though I wish I could be as explicit as the feeling inside
It still wouldn’t be enough
Because such is my fate.
You think I talk a lot of gibberish
But perhaps if you made us as uncomplicated
You would find beauty in my words here in my heart
I said there was no room for love here
Yet you were willing to make me promises
You first loved
But I’m the one who became needy
My head’s under water
I’m struggling to be alright
I want to think of you only half as much as you think of me
But I have not become a slave to my feeling for you
I am struggling to be alright
I do not want you to see me shatter
But in truth,
This is what I have become
But I would rather live a life of unrequited love
Than not know the feeling at all
I wouldn’t change a thing
Because I love me
Just the way that I am … More Just the way I am
Come, let’s celebrate the sanctity of love
Here she comes, looking like a goddess
My love’s innocent beloved
She appears at my door like full moon
Come, let’s forget our differences and celebrate what binds us together
Your love has caused me pain
Like a dagger through my heart
But maybe that’s my destiny
To love a man who can never belong completely to either one of us
But we can at least hope together
While we celebrate the sanctity of the love we have. … More My Love’s Beloved
