Commander of My Heart

I’ve crossed mountains of lifetimes to find you. I’ve climbed thousand walls Just to be by your side And answer as your lover. Sadly, I’m not the one you stand with When the music stops and the party’s over.   But I love you like dance-steps likes the sound Of those lovely tunes from the…

Life – Unfiltered

The bridge of life is quite long, Ups and downs are something that come along, Every step forward, Is one step closer to win The crossword, It can be exhausting To custom yourself to the standards, So don’t pull yourself in the grandeur, One day it’s – white.

You, Me and my notion over you

I’m just envious about myself, For there are million reasons, But one perturbed me, The most.   It’s the notion, That kindles me alive, Of losing myself, Over you.   I love the feeling, It’s just you in the conclusion. That kindles me alive, The notion of losing, Myself over you.

Dear Anxiety.

Sometimes, you sweep me off my feet. I mean, literally. I wish I knew how to stand on my own without trembling like a leaf betwixt your grip. As you tighten your hug I wonder why I let you build a cocoon inside of me. My eyes dart from across cozy corners at a cafe…
