Let’s get together and travel around the world
Surely the truth can be discarded
So let’s journey to places not covered
I want the world once again to be loved
But only lies are recovered
The world is a disillusion
That results from a twisted delusion
To find truths remains our mission
We want to feel love again
I swore off love after our break up
Closed hearts, closed minds
I guess are easier to find
Empty words, empty stares
I guess is how it’s supposed to be
Is this how love is supposed to feel like?
I greet the orange-canvased morning
Lethargically I go running
Chasing after a nameless passion
How far can I keep going?
How more can I keep loving?
In this world without compassion
I didn’t understand what love was
Was it warm? Was it sweet?
Another night with the stars gleam
In a Milky Way of butter cream
Within a child’s dream
Chocolate chips shoot across the sky
In a sketch of the galaxy
Sitting in a world that’s lost all flavor
Bitterness is the only thing we savor
A lone girl wishes it to be over
Tasting once again the sweetness
The princess becomes a sweet menace
Nibbling on a parfait
She waits by the bay
The first snowfall was met with a bitter apprehension I couldn’t place. It was innocent enough—pure and white twinkling as it parted with the sky. I observed it by the windowsill holding my warm cocoa and listening to my I-pod. Still, I couldn’t help but feel unsettled by the sudden event. It was too innocuous.
Shivering, I moved to place my drink on the side table beside me only to spill it on the floor. I stared despondently at the slowly spreading liquid as I became aware of the sudden thumping of the snow outside. It grew louder when I bent over to pick up the cup and the sound only grew to a brain-shattering screech that caused me to drop the cup again. Unnerved, I stood up fully and turned around.
