A New Love is Born


Face covered with my hands,
I look at you through my fingers,
A glint of mischief in my eyes,
The kinds that on your lips lingers.

A coy smile I throw,
Across the room at you,
You slowly walk towards me,
Make me feel something new.

Your warmth trickles down,
Right down to my toes,
This is nothing less than magic,
Magic or love, who knows.

Whoever you are,
And wherever you’re going,
You are here right now,
And that’s all that’s worth knowing.

A projection of my subconscious,
Or a figment of my imagination,
These moments to me are real,
They are the object of my affection.

In a cloud I exist,
On a cloud I seem to walk,
When you are with me,
The world just seems to stop.

Miss me, do you?
When I am not around?
Do you miss this freedom too,
In us that we have found?

Talk to me tonight,
About everything under the sun,
I will listen to your story,
As if it were a prize I’d won.

Tomorrow is so far,
So much further from now,
Life is now, live a little,
Love will show you how.

This life is long,
So much longer alone,
Stay with me,
Let a new love be born.



Prettier In Candlelight.

Many a night I have spent,

Cozy in my material blanket,

Texts buzzing and chats popping,

I’ve been surrounded by the racket.


Then tonight brought along the darkness,

Outraged, i fumed at the outage,

The government sure got an earful,

I called them scum and all kinds of garbage.


Gathering my ammo of matches and candles,

Muttering every expletives under my breath,

I got this dingy show on the road,

Candles everywhere, a date with myself.


My companions for tonight,

The eerie silence and the random light,

Told me all kinds of secret tales,

Of courage, bravery and unseen might.


Hush, said the silence,

Hear what I have to say,

A long way you have come,

Live a little, a little every day,


The candlelight put on a show,

Of dancing shadows on the walls,

It showed me the story,

Of broken souls standing tall.


I was stunned at the fire,

That the silence and shadows brought along,

Heightened senses, and a sharper gut,

Finally brought everything where it belongs.


Even the fish looked more alive,

Mirroring the way I felt,

Calm and serene they swam,

In their bowl, watching the candles melt,


My gift for this night I received,

Faith brought an end to this fight,

I’m glad that I learned something today,

That everything’s just prettier in candlelight.
