still in frozen time

dying stars in your wintry pair of eyes
harsh breeze, a biting frost, soft snow.
a longing and a yearning for warmth yet warmth
is only a small flame in the heart,
is but a gushing river that has frozen over.
eternal winter, blizzard, temperatures dropping
like i drop my responsibilities
halting, shallow breathing, visible breaths of air,
out in and in out again,
just me and myself on the snow,
naked to the night sky and drifting snowflakes
that melt into water when coming into touch
until they melt no more

freedom, among other things

my heart is free
and so is yours
let’s look to the same sky
and open our doors

let’s not look at the chiseled wall
worn down from our gaze
and instead look at the wind
and stand unfazed, unafraid

our ears start ringing
and the pounding in our head gets louder
but it’s a good kind of pain; 
the kind that we’re meant to shoulder

we run towards the light
we rise even with weak
knees, our hearts are small but
steady,
we follow in their footsteps,
we run and we run even those
who can’t breathe
we run

and we ran towards the light,
it was but a midsummer’s night.

god

VERSE 1
when i cry
i create torrents of rain
people’s lives, slain

in a neverending echo
my voice cracks
leaving behind countless deaths

CHORUS
when will my words match
what i want to say
it’s like my own mind
is fading away
let me scream
in this lonely world
if the words ever come one day

VERSE 2
you’re able to smile
because i’m here and giving
the life you’re living

you’re able to cry
because i’m here and taking
the life you’re making

CHORUS x1

when will my words match
what i want to say?

BRIDGE
you who cries in pain in a black dress
you whose sins were never confessed
you who feels absolutely worthless
you, and you, and you
you are my creation and my doing

CHORUS x1

ENDING
when will my words match
what i want to say?

unfinished symphony

i am unfinished
a piece in pieces
shattered music

you are unfinished
an artistic stroke of a thick brush
stopped midway
not enough colours to turn into a dirty black

we are unfinished
we do not end here
we have more to go, unlike
a meteor that only shines for that brief moment

we are a small star unnoticeable
burning weakly
but passionately

we are not done yet
we do not end here
we are broken chords
and imperfect melodies

let the stars sing their songs
let them compose their music
we will write ours
many snippets of notes that clash
and we do not end here
let the flowers bloom and wither
let the sun rise and set into darkness
to rise again
let the leaves fall to the ground in their last dance
let the snow melt into another spring
we do not end here

we are two 
not one

we are broken
we refuse to end here
