The use of a pen makes me feel rusty.

"I just want to go home",
said the astronaut
"So come home",
said ground control
"S o  c o m e  h o m e",
said a voice from the stars
But where's my home?
Where is my home among thousands and thousands stars?
Nothing had me gone numb
A giant can't feel a grain of dust between his fingers
But the grain of dust is suffocated in his grasp
Why did I decide to get lost?
I used to...

It's not that I'm not fine, it's just
I'm not always fine
I shall be fine but
Right now I'm not
I call 
My happiness, my happiness, my happiness
I'm tired of chasing after you
Even if I have wings
I still have bruises and scratches
Fate, the almighty
Are you this harsh to me because I don't believe in you?
You make me feel bad when I'm feeling fine
You make me feel worse when I'm feeling bad
You...

You once told me
About your loneliness being a mistake
To which I responded
How can a blank page be the most beautiful scene in life?

Little did you know
The reason you saw me
Is because I am also a lonely human
A fragile ghost among the shells

People say if they love you, they will accept your flaws
Only if they are not hurt
We are asked to sew the best presents
In return, they let us down...

Tonight I listened to the clouds sing
When they all disappear
As if following the north on my compass
My head lifts up

Stars are twinkling through raindrops hung on the glass
I open the window to the perfect blue sky
Wiping out the mist above the lake
I watch them being mirrored in the water

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven
There are too many planets that I lost count
Seven, six, five, four, three, two, one
Numbers...

Lullaby

I saw four stars on the sky tonight
Watching them flickering, I thought they were planes
The sky is darker than the other day
Even when the city lights are up

I just realised the Moon was not here tonight
And for a moment, I was left out of time
Familiar because it feels whole
Odd because it feels whole without the Moon

Maybe a black wall with white puncturing through was enough
And suddenly a ripped piece of paint...

Eclipse

I saw seven stars on the sky today
It was like looking for seashells in the sand
Harder than searching for a four-leaf clover under my feet
And easier than finding you in a crowd

I saw the moon in the night today
Its loneliness reminds me of you
Each planet is a lonely human
And each human is a lonely planet

"No matter how much I circle, you are not in my orbit"
Our sight is the paper, not...
