Hi, hello and hey! I am a girl who loves to write and share her thoughts with the world. I believe that words can wield magic, and I will be trying my hardest to make mine, not only wield magic, but also have lives of their own...

Dig Me Out #Song_Number_1

I've never been so deep in the ground,
I wish to be seen up above,
I have dreams so high in the sky,
but I can't reach them now.

Let me try to see the light of the sun,
I am striving to feel my skin burn,
you can't catch me, I am below,
I'll never learn.

I am down,
won't get up, get up, get up, get up.
And I'll be gone,
won't wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up.

So come on,
dig me out,
fly from the sky,
and reach the ground,
like an angel from high up above,
come on dig me out now...

Let me try to see the light of the sun,

I am shrunken,
won't get up, get up, get up, get up.
I am crumpled,
won't wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up.

So come on,
dig me out,
fly from the sky,
and reach the ground,
like an angel from high up above,
come on dig me out now...

Catch Up

They run past me,
bullet speed,
the world's turning,
like the soul in me,
My mind is twisting,
into shreds,
I'm not able to,
contemplate,
I need to catch up to them,
as fast as I can,
else,
eternity will pass,
and I'll be stranded in time,
frozen and cold,
not understanding a thing,
I'll be stuck,
I'll be stuck,
I'll be stuck within,
Within myself,
and the thoughts would keep,
running away from me,
I need to catch up with them,
before they would leave,
before they'd leave me.

Where You Are, You're Perfect There

You are not real,
just a figment,
of my mighty imagination,
a drop of water,
in the ocean of dreams,
in sea of bliss,
in the river of thoughts,
in the lake of calm,
you soothe,
you smile,
you laugh,
my heart skips,
beats to your voice,
which is music to me,
and I'll listen to it,
my whole life,
if you'd just let me,
but you'll go away,
when I open my eyes,
this reality is too harsh,
I wish you would survive,
but you won't,
you're in my mind,
in my soul,
and you'll remain there,
for eternity,
you are the one,
the one,
who holds my soul,
high for it to fly,
for it to soar,
for it to dance,
under the light of the sun,
the burning sun,
unlike our serene pair,
exhausts its fuel,
but we'd keep ours,
for eternity,
for eternity we'll remain,
and I'll be happy with you,
where you are,
you're perfect...

Light Within

Let my light pass through the dark,
where creatures great and small embark.

Let me see past through the mist,
into the clear world of bliss.

Let my thoughts be heavenly,
let my arms seek out the needy.

When the time comes we would,
realize our dreams and find the truth.

The truth that would enlighten us,
would be held and found because,

Our light would pass through the dark,
where creatures great and small embark.

Skeleton

No skin,
just a skeleton,
just a skeleton,
no tongue,
just a skeleton,
just a skeleton,
no eyes,
just a skeleton,
just a skeleton
but a heart still beats inside...

It's Time

"It's time," my father said.
I wasn't ready.
"It's time," my mother repeated.
I wasn't ready. 
"It's time," my conscience said.
I wasn't ready.
"It's time," I told myself.
I wasn't ready.
Then how will I succeed?
If I am not ready,
then how will I reach?
Those undiscovered opportunities,
those hidden dreams?
Then how will I reach,
those hidden dreams?
Those precious dreams,
but I'm not ready,
will I ever be?
But I'm not ready,
I may never be.
But I'll be ready,
I'll discover those dreams,
I'll be ready,
Cause the time has come,
to succeed.
 

Thy

Thy heart,
not less than a kingdom of gold,
Thy life,
will be expanded by a million-fold,
Thy love,
will linger and mingle with the air,
Thy morals,
of life we all would share,
Thy truth,
will be the death of the night,
Thy laughter,
would accompany the light,
Thy soul,
shall reside in me,
Thy vision,
I shall bear and I shall see,
Thy sweet lore,
I must read,
Thy brave lore,
I must breathe...
 

Star Wish

Hold Up The Sky

The rain may fall,
And the thunder may roar,
Of those raging fears,
And of atrocities untold.

The sky may be dark,
A sinister grin,
Hidden entwined,
With the lightning sin.

The sky may throb,
Like the heart in me,
Fight or flight,
Stay or leave.

And now I am,
Beneath the stars that remain,
Those stars that shine,
Through the murderous rain.

There is some time,
Before the knell of nigh,
So I pray to the stars,
To hold up the sky...



 

Such A Waste Of Space

I work then I slog,
I slog for myself,
with a burdened heart,
and a burdened tale,
such a waste of space,
I eat then I sleep,
and then it repeats,
nothing but a machine,
such a waste of space,
I see my life,
as a sorrowful waste,
dumped on the Earth,
such a waste of space,
such a waste of space,
my life, myself,
such a waste of space,
just a visitor,
just a memory,
that's all I'll remain,
on this land,
of growth and success,
that's all I'll remain,
such a waste of space,
such a waste of space,
such a waste of space...

The World I Am In

I sat down,
and pondered upon,
the world I was in.
With skies and flowers,
and deserted bowers,
and no time to travel within.

I sat down,
and pondered upon,
the people all around me.
All drenched in sorrow,
with no hope for tomorrow,
themselves were all they could see.

I sat down,
and pondered upon,
whether they realized themselves.
Do they understand,
this mystery land,
or do they live in an other realm?

I sat down
and pondered upon,
my heart, my mind, my soul.
Am I like them?
or am I different?
I may just never know.

Because understanding my past,
My present and future.
Is a tough task indeed.
To know oneself,
and then polish ourselves,
And then to realize our dream.

But it is quite hilarious,
to speak of such things,
when I myself urge you all to believe,
in a much better world,
and the possibility to mould,
into a better human being.

Loving A Boy Like Him

He looked at me,
I smiled,
How could I have turned so lucky,
His hand in mine,
we walked together,
towards the building,
intimidating as it was prejudiced to be,
it looked pretty today,
filled with new hopes,
and dreams untold,
a future with someone I loved,
a future filled with joy,
the book in front of us,
he signed it,
I looked at him,
he smiled at me,
i smiled back,
then I let my hands slide,
through the book which had made true,
so many silent dreams,
I signed,
I looked back at him,
he kissed me,
I kissed him back,
Such a mysterious thing,
love is,
exploding into lives,
in different forms,
but I was glad that it came into,
my life in the form it is now,
making a boy like me,
love a boy like him... 

I See You, I See Me

I see you,
in the abyss of sorrow,
calling out to me,
your frail voice,
dwindling in the sea,
of darkness and I,
try to swim faster and faster,
towards from the light,
I can't help it,
I am being pulled,
by the current,
away from you,
I don't know you,
I wan't to understand,
who you are,
I cry out,
for help,
help me,
I am going down,
and down,
and down deep into the sea,
I pray,
I pray for myself,
I pray for life,
it might have been the prayers,
it might have been my will,
because then,
then I see you again,
all too suddenly,
and as I see you,
I see me,
I have been rescued,
I can finally breathe,
I rescued me,
I rescued me...

When Will I Go?

I closed the book and got up from the couch. Running towards the kitchen, I asked Mother softly,
"When will I go?"
She sighed and then looked me right in the eye. 
"There is time, darling child. You have a lot of time left," she said.
"But, Mother! I really, really, really want to meet God!" I said. I was five. I was innocent.  
Mother caught me gently by my shoulder and bent down. I looked at her with large eyes filled with hope.
"God has given us a life to live, child. We must be our best, do our best, while we live. Only then, and only then, will God accept us. So live a happy and fulfilling life, darling," she said. I stayed quiet.

Years passed on. I was ten. I ran towards the kitchen and asked Mother softly,
"When will I go?"
She sighed and looked me right in the eye.
"Haven't I told you about this...

One Man, 10,000 Devils

Petals on my feet,
Feathers in my hair,
Deeply burnt trees,
A storm to withstand.

Running through the shadows,
Demons to chase,
Jumping from each mountain,
My body scathed.

No one who helps,
Cause no one who knows,
The problems I'm facing,
The weeds in my bones.

A liter of blood,
From my shattered eyes,
Loose limbs,
Broken ties.

One Man, 10,000 Devils.

Chances And Bugs

Tears meandering down her face, she opened the door with her worn out hands. The keys dangled and clinked together, piercing through the disturbingly silent air around her. Another night. Then, another start. Tired of the critics and the haters, tired of the fragility of her confidence, tired of her weaknesses. She entered the dull room, the pale room. It rightly mirrored her thoughts. It rightly mirrored her existence. She rested her body against the wooden chair. It creaked, she sighed. It was tired too.

She closed her eyes for a moment, a moment too long, a moment too short. She thought of lilies and roses. Flower beds surrounding a beautiful cottage. The scent of freshly baked cookies wafting across the cheerful garden. She, standing in the shade of a kind tree, enjoying the afternoon sun. The image tears and succumbs into darkness as the thought of her reality storms into her brain. Her brain. Such a scary tool. Such...
