She Could Be Anything

She could be anything...

So she wore dresses made up of pictures,
to feel she was wearing the world.
And got a tattoo of the moon in her ear,
like it was solely created to decorate her.

She chose to pull down the sun
to paint her hair with its shine.
And colored her lips with flowers,
to always look like spring.

She wore stars in her eyes,
for her to always dream.
And drew wings in her back
so she could finally chase them.

Some people are a tragedy.
A walking, ticking bomb.
They go around drinking, inhaling poison,
Sucking in life,
Breathing out pain.

Hide the Evidence of the Crime Scene

Darling, you hide the evidence of the crime scene,
where there once existed love. 
You break the love letters, burn down the memories, 
and bury them deep down in lies.

Yet, we all know it's you who is to blame for the body, 
that rests cold and lifeless inside.
So hide the evidence, hide it for good,
but you'll never forget where this love once stood.

It Was Still Raining Inside

"Do you think it's going to rain all week?" he asked.
"I don't know," the little girl said.

From the corner of her eye she could see the man packing in his room.
His belongings were all scattered on the floor, patiently waiting for him to place them in his suitcase. She couldn't help but wonder if she could fit inside.

"I really hope it won't," the little boy said. "I want to start swimming class tomorrow."
The house was completely silent, except for the sound of raindrops falling on the roof and the occasional shuffling sound that came as the man struggled to place things inside his bag."Will he also be taking his memories?" the little girl wondered.

The two little children just sat there, eyes on the floor, waiting for what was coming. Her mind started reminiscing about the times when they would all go and play at the pool. How she would love to hold onto her father's shoulders, hugging him gently, feeling his warmth as she gently floated on the water.

SNAP! The sound of the suitcase closing brought them back from the faraway land of their daydreams. She was no longer slowly drifting away in her memories, she was back again sitting on the ice cold floor, facing reality. Her heart was aching.

With heavy hearts and slow steps, both children stood up to follow the man and his suitcase to the door. They were trying to win some time, but there was no more delaying it. He opened the door.

Her heart made a small flip as he stepped out into the parking lot and her eyes followed him intently. It had finally stopped raining outside. She noticed that the sun had come out and the sky had cleared up; the leaves reflected the sun's gleam and the last drops of rain were finally finding their way to the ground. It all seemed so calm.

"Come," her brother urged her outside. She obeyed and unwillingly took a step. There was no delaying it anymore. The little girl stretched her arms to hug the man goodbye hoping maybe he would change his mind, but then he slowly pulled himself away.

A door was shut, an engine was started, and hearts were broken. As they watched their father drive away, she noticed that she could hear the sound of raindrops falling again.

"I think it will be raining all week," she said to her brother as they slowly walked towards the water that was still falling inside.

Expiration Date

If only it was that simple.
I'm looking at a can's expiration date,
And I can't help but to think that in reality,
Life does not work out that way.

If only I knew the date of expiration,
The amount of time before the disintegration,
Of life,
Of love.

The Adventures of Mr. Crab

Mr. Crab,
has quite a busy day,
but he dropped by to visit.
For long he couldn't stay. 

Go on Mr. Crab, go back to the sea,
it is with your family that you have to be.
Not one, or two, or even three,
its six little crabs that you oversee.

So go on Mr. Crab, be on your way.
Thanks for the visit you paid me today.

Life After Him

There is life after him.
It does not mean that I don’t love him anymore,
Because I do and in a way, I always will.
It does not mean that I do not miss him,
Because I do. He took a part of my heart when he left.
It does not mean that I have forgotten him,
Because I never will. He has been one of the most important persons in my life. 
It does not mean that I am over this and over him,
Because he is still the leading man of many of my dreams.
It just means that I know that life goes on and so will I,
Because I understand that I have the right to be happy,
Even if it is not by his side,
And I have accepted the fact that so does he.

I’ll Walk Away, But I Won’t Go That Far

I walk into the room and I see a thunderstorm coming
Because I see you’re angry and you know I’m there.
You start shooting at me your spiteful words
And I start crying, but you don’t really care.

I walk out knowing you’re the bad guy of this movie,
But you’re so good at putting up a pity show.
It is always the excuse of what you’ve been through
When you say you’re sorry for the words you throw.

All I know is you’re the constant reminder of a heartache,
And the reason why we are drifting apart. 
Does it make you feel better to see my heart breaking?
Because you know I’ll walk away, but I won’t go that far.

I Am the Person You Will Always Forget

I am the name that crossed your lips
Without meaning, without thought.
I am the person you will always forget.

I am the face your eyes once saw.
They passed me by, but never lingered.
I am the person you will always forget.

I am the distant voice calling your name.
You are unreachable and I am unheard.
I am the person you will always forget.

I am the person you go to when it’s dark.
Yet when you shine my dear, I’m forgotten,
Invisible, unnoticed.

But I will no longer be that person you always forget.
No longer invisible.
No longer unnoticed.

I’ll be the one haunting thought that’s filling your head,
The one memory you’ll look back and always regret,
The person who is gone and you’ll never forget.

Have You Ever? (Holding On To You)

Have you ever felt your heart aching?
For me those were my dreams,
pounding the walls of my heart,
screaming for me to go back to you.

Have you ever felt your tears running?
For me that was my soul,
leaking its way through me,
desperately trying to get a hold of you.

Have you ever felt you can't breathe?
For me that was my body,
Clinging to our last moment,
To that last breath of what will never get to be.

You Won’t Come Back to Me This Time

You walk to the door and I’m just sitting here,
Second guessing myself.
I see you are moving on. I fear,
I’ll be the dusty book in the back of your shelf.
You open the door and I’m just laying here,
Doubting if my decision was right.
I know I was the one who let you go my dear,
But I thought you’d be the one who’d put up a fight.

You walk out the door and I’m just crying here,
Feeling that I’ve managed to make the relationship fall.
You are all I ever wanted. I have it clear,
But I conspired against myself to lose it all.

I know I was the one hurting you my dear,
When I wasn’t in my right state of mind.
I know I shouldn’t sit here and wait for you. It’s clear,
You won’t come back to me this time.

I know you are moving on. But, I’ll be sincere,  
I’m still wishing you were mine.
I’m laying here regretting everything my dear,
Still loving you after all this time. 

I Feel We’re Coming Down

I feel it’s coming down to nothing,
And I am holding on to hope.
I feel we’re being kept together,
By the last string of a breaking rope.

I feel it’s coming down to this moment,
And I know it might be our last.
This is the one chance, the crucial seconds,
To try to catch this falling glass.

I feel it’s coming down to what we were,
And to what we’ll never be.
It’s coming down to my tears running.
They are falling and darling, so are we.

I feel it's coming down to this moment.
I feel this is our last.
And I know I'll hold on forever,
The pieces of our shattered glass.

I feel it’s coming down to nothing.
I feel there’s really no more hope.
And I’ll be holding on forever,
To the last string of a broken rope.

Two Words

Two words are not “me and you.”
Two words are not “I love you.”

Two words are not “together.”
Two words are not “forever.”

Two words are “you lied.”
Two words are “I cried.”

Love is a Sweet Dream

I fear, love’s magic perishing away,
The ice-cold embrace of reality,
A dark storm consuming a sunny day,
True love ending up in fatality.

For true love is the sweetest dream of all,
You can wake up or eternally dream,
You can jump into the abyss and fall,
Or fly under the moon and the stars’ gleam.

Yet, when our lips meet in a tender kiss,
When his gentle love words enter my ears,
When in his arms I am in joyful bliss,
As a sword, he obliterates my fears.

Into this eternal dream I subdue,
I close my eyes knowing this love is true.

My Romeo (My World)

I glided to the garden dressed in my gown,
Feeling as if I was opening my eyes for the first time,
Gazing at the horizon; encountering my Romeo.
He was the light.
He was the flowers
That with time bloomed into a myriad colors.
My heart blossomed along with them.

I sneaked outside silently every night hiding from my parents to meet him
He was the trees.
He was the bright day, the dark night,
The animals, the wind
That caressed me with their soft velvet wings.

My love was his love.
He was the stars, the moon, the sun.
Waiting outside my balcony every day and night
Like a guardian angel, way up high, towering above me,
Waiting for us to meet again.

One day the mystery was over, my family found him,
They could not understand.
They were killing him.
Keeping us,

They poisoned the water,
And one morning Romeo was no more.

I stabbed the dagger into my heart wondering just why
The ones who could not put the stars in line,
Would wilt the flowers,
Would destroy their own lives,
Would kill my Romeo:
The world.
