People tell me I look like you
You, who bore me on a balsamic moon.
You said life was no easy for you
So you try to amend the past with me.
You guided me through and through
But kept haunting secrets only you knew.
You would suddenly hug me at night
That I had to breathe because it was tight.
When I had to leave for my dreams
Your eyes looked so painful and in tears.
You wanted me to stay in the nest
But I was stubborn that I still went away.
I said I wanted to live the world
But you said the world would eat my heart.
Remembering those days still hurt
Whenever you would send me your letters.
And that I realize that you’re right
But it was just too late to turn back time.
Time when I was still in your arms
With the peace I never found with the world.
How can such a simple single word
Mean so much to my whole existence?
I pray time to be merciful to me
So I can finally utter the words ‘forgive me.’
Tears on New Year’s Eve
Had me caught on reverie
Loneliness behind the smiles
Keep the ghosts out of bay.
Yesterday went like a dream
Had me wishing it were all real
Had my thoughts unguarded
Drinking the truth with wine.
I look up at the sky
Where I rumbled my thanks
Lonely eve to bury the past
And create a new life.
