Could I Be The One?

Author’s Note (more like a disclaimer): So after writing this, I realized it is similar to a Jollibee (most famous fast food chain in the Philippines) commercial aired a couple of months ago but it wasn’t the inspiration to this. In the last stanza, I was thinking of the song 25 Minutes by Michael Learns To Rock (cheesy but they were a hit in the Philippines back in the day). Anyways, enough of the disclaimer…

I wish I could be the one
Who will comfort you
Who will hear your pain
And listen to your woes
Then take your hand
An tell you it’s fine

I wish I could be the one
Whom you’ll turn to
In times of joy or hurt
To be everything you need
Then show you true love
And let you know it’s real

I wish I could be the one
Who will hold you tight
Who will kiss your lips
And feel you close to me
Then be the first person you’ll see
When the morning comes

But he’s standing next to you
With a promise of forever
Sealed with a ring and a kiss
And as you both walk down the aisle
Hand in hand, overjoyed
How I wish… I could be him

Kaleidoscope

Look inside and experience the beauty
A mirror of an abstract mystery
Turn it around and see the evolution
It goes beyond my imagination

New patterns are emerging in each glance
A view of an amazing performance
Colours are changing in each rotation
It takes me to a different direction

Each shape is shifting the mind’s paradigm
A fresh knowledge is forming every time
It’s a wonder, it’s my inspiration
It is the kaleidoscope’s attraction

Keep The Chase

Sometimes I am hitting a wall
I can’t pass through it, I am stuck
It would be the end, my downfall
And all I can hear is the clock
Counting ’til the death of my all

But I wish for time to stop ticking
It’s the sound I refuse to hear
Can the world stop from spinning
And shelter myself from my fear
To standstill ’til a new beginning

Sometimes I run but reach a cliff
There’s nowhere to go, should I leap
It’s suicide and it would be brief
Accept the end, just take a deep
Then wander in oblivion without grief

But I don’t want to be in that place
I need to get away from that cage
I am afraid to drift in space
So I’ll fight to not reach that stage
It’s my battle to keep the chase

I Am…

I am again counting every minute
Itching every moment until I’m restless

I am drumming my fingers on my desk
Strumming to the beat of an empty tune

I am staring blankly at my PC screen
Focusing beyond my mind’s consciousness

I am studying flowcharts and numbers
Calculating my imagination’s depth

I am looking outside, admiring the scene
Anticipating change to this unknown pace

I am pretending – pretending this is life
Wondering if I would ever be unmasked
