Please, Lord!

I did the best I could
Please don’t let me be fooled
I can only hope, pray
To let it be my way

‎Is it a new chapter?
‎A future that’s brighter?
The path to destiny
To end my agony?

But it’s reaching for star
It’s so close yet so far
My patience is tested
Now I am frustrated

So I lay it to You
Please help me to pull through
‎Please tell me how to deal
Please let it be Your will

Distracted By You, Still

Writer’s Note: This is part 2 of last week’s post, Distracted By You.

I’m still very distracted by the thought of you
You make me feel restless, I don’t know what to do
I know I have to be patient, stay positive
Wait for the perfect time, continue to believe

Though you gave me a glimpse of hope to carry on
I still don’t know if I should hold on or move on
Tell me more – don’t leave me hanging in the unknown
You left me so confused with the gestures you’ve shown

I’m fighting hard to not be distracted by you
I just want to live free from any thoughts of you
I need more faith for me to trust our destiny
And know things will be fine if we are meant to be

I am so distracted by the thought of you
How I badly desire to be with you
As I hope to have a future with you
It’s certainly what I want to pursue

But some things are clearly not meant to be
No matter how hard I make my plea
I wish I know the way to make you mine
I won’t give up until you see the sign

Or maybe it’s best to leave you alone
So I can move on and be on my own
But my world will collapse if you leave
Should I let go, hold on? How should I live?

Escape To Oblivion

I wish to wander in oblivion
To float in the air towards the unknown
To be lost in space then drift away
I want to escape and be gone for days

Let me journey into nothingness
Let me travel and forget the mess
No looking back, leaving all behind
Go to some place and empty my mind

I need to explore the oblivion
I need my retreat and be alone
To be far so I can dream away
So please, just please! Take me away!

Author’s Note: I have two versions of this writing – the other one was already posted here.

Minutes are passing
It’s your turn, what now?
Show me so I would know
Which pawn should I use
Will I take the bait?
Or will it be a check?
Now it’s a check
Protect the king
Hide behind the rook
It’s the queen’s move
But a knight’s mistake
Bishop’s avenging
But there’s nowhere to go
Is it checkmate? The end?
I failed and lost
I struggled in this battle
This battle of waiting

Wherever

I was hoping to bring back my lost fire, my lost drive
But I couldn’t find them in spite of my effort and strive
I thought a new place would be the start of discovery
Unfortunately, some things are not just meant to be

I initially thought it would be my way to freedom
Or maybe it’d be another disguise of a kingdom
A kingdom of a new hell where I would be again sucked
So I guess it was for the best so I will not be stuck

Clearly, a new place is not the answer to my questions
Wherever I go I could not find any solution
Maybe I just need to surrender – let go – let it be
Accept my fate into nothingness, that’s where I will be

A Glimpse Of What Could Have

I guess I just assumed that I was okay, all right
Then I saw a glimpse of something different, new light
It opened a new world that I never imagined
A place where I want to be but it is not destined

The more I think about it, the more I badly want it
It was my mistake to believe that it was a fit
My fault to hope for something beyond my capacity
It changed my views – things are no longer the way I see

Now I’m back to my prison without even a gleam
Could I go back to yesterdays with unshattered dream?
Because now I’m sulking over something I never had
I wish I have never seen the glimpse of what could have
