The Only One

I see the vulnerability in your eyes
Your guard is down and you’re no longer in disguise
But he is the only one who can protect you
The only one who can wipe away your blues

I sense the love coming from your very soul
It’s penetrating my core making me whole
But he is the only one who can see through you
The only one who can compliment a love that’s true

I feel passion emanating from your being
A light of zeal and sensuality you are bringing
But he is the only one destined to touch you
The only one who can be in paradise with you

With just a kiss from him and all your fears are gone
You start to assume that he is the only one
But here I am, you know I could be the one
Let me in and I’ll prove to you that I am THE one

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

Roundabout

It is a roundabout and I can’t find my exit
It is unsetting, I wonder if I’m losing it
I just drive in circles until my gas is emptied
Or until my mind to eventually see a lead

My path is clearly blocked by this insanity
And vision is blurred towards the road to destiny
It is puzzling and my engine is slowly dying
But I will keep driving even if I’m just circling

THIS is my roundabout and I can’t find THE exit
I’m getting restless, soon, I might be losing it
I still drive in loops hoping my tank is refilled
For I need to stay here until THE way is revealed

Mood Swings

Yesterday was the warmest ever
Yet today feels like the coldest weather
Yesterday quickly became distant
When the mood had changed in an instant

Like you who were celebrating with glee
Then today your smile I can no longer see
What happened that caused you so much pain
All happy thoughts were washed away in vain

Like a fickle weather that’s ever changing
One day you’re fine, the next day you’re sulking
I wish I could take all your blues away
And bring back the warmth of yesterday
