For Me

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

Here I am
Here I wait 
Here I lie confused about me
Hear me out
Let me in
Others words are all I see

So you say
You know me
You know what is best for me
The decisions 
The directions
All made by you for me

For me
For me

Crushing my soul and tearing me out
My whole life was just as a puppet to you
The strings around me are strangling my neck
I feel myself paralyzed...

Verse 1:
You’re the sparkle in my darkest times
You’re my alpha and omega too
You’re past the shadows and into the light
You’re the one I look up to
Chorus:
Oh, you’re the one I wanna have so so bad 
Oh, you’re the one I look up to
Oh, you’re the one I wanna have so so bad
Oh, you’re the one I wanna have so bad

You're an idea in my head I can't get quite get over
Alone we are weak but we can't be together 
We fitted perfect when we spoke last
Now I regret our chequered past
Because I made you a memory
That I keep dragging onward

And I'm dreamin' of a new tomorrow
Free from the mistakes of today
I'm hoping for a better future
Making it right, the old way
When we were innocents once
Free to hold hands

I Don't Know

PROMPT: Song Writing Competition 2019

Walking under the rain of my brain
on the road of my soul
Hoping to find myself
Hoping to find my will
Oh, Am I the road or am i the walker; I don’t know
I don’t know.
Am I the rain or am I the soil, I have no clue
I have no clue
I look around me, there, I see
Someone with eyes just like Me
Confused, he looked. And so he asked
Are you me? Or am...

I do not know when I began to feel like this, I do not know why I began to feel like this again.

But whenever I look back at our pictures, or just pictures of you, I get this weird emotional tang. I feel miserable whenever I think about what we could have been. Thinking of how happy we could have been, but now, it is no longer possible. I regret my decision. I regret coming out to say 'I...

"Paying 10 cents for every non-English word we say, it's ridiculous!" Fahmi ranted, spitting out his incredulity as I patiently pretended to listen beside him. "I mean, this is Malaysia, we're bound to speak in broken English. Come on lah!"

At that moment, one of the corridor patrols, a timid first-year in a black head cover—indicating she was a prefect—with a pearly white smile, outstretched her hand in front of us, halting us in our steps. The name tag on...
