And when I open my arms

to embrace you,

you are not there.

Frantic, I grope across the nothingness.

And my longing for you

has cursed me into restlessness.

I run along endless paths to nowhere.

And the more I seek a way out,

the more I get confused



This emptiness consumes me.


…is, are you?

Never had seen such piercing stare.
Makes me wonder what you have in there.

Sad, are you?
So I drift in the emptiness of your smile,
In the hollowness of your words.

Spent, are you?
So I drown in the depth of your sigh,
In the weight of your silence.

Stiff, are you?
So I shrink in the demand of your grip,
In the limits of your ideals.

Stuck, are you?
So I struggle in the burden of your denial,
In the truth of your misery.

I know what you are.
I’m willing to accept you.
But the question
Is, are you?

souls remain untamed

Where gold is untarnished,
Adventure has not come.
For blood taints the threat
Indigo the moon has become.

Is there a chance to succumb
As paths hardly cross?
When drawn farther apart
Will words be enough?

Yet do not be dismayed
Patiently we must wait.
For when a bond is deep
The secret is kept safe.

When the dance resumes
All weariness shall fade.
Thirst shall be quenched
For souls remain untamed.

Not here,
Not there,
A place only we know where.

Not then,
Not now,
A moment only we could share.

Not yes,
Not no,
A maybe that we know for certain.

Not right,
Not wrong,
A truth only our feelings can explain.

Not day,
Not night,
Twilights we spent tighten the screw.

Not long,
Not soon,
On time for our rendezvous.

Not me,
Not you,
The us we cannot eschew.

not there

I mustn’t stay longer,

 hold you tighter,

 kiss you sweeter.


I mustn’t go further,

 know you better,

 love you deeper.


I mustn’t pull you closer,

 take you higher,

 make you happier.


I mustn’t go there.


I mustn’t give more

Than what I can take.


I mustn’t take more

Than what I can bear.


I mustn’t go where

I can never get back from.



We knew

What we



We got

What we



We get

What we



We know

What we



We are

Where we



I can make you

See the fireworks

When I burst with joy

Of being with you.

I can make you

Hear the melodies

When I utter whispers

Of affection for you.

I can make you

Whiff the fragrance

When my soul blooms

Of passion for you.

I can make you

Relish the sugar

When my lips moisten

Of hunger for you.

I can make you

Feel the blaze

When my body ignites

Of desire for you.

I can make you

Know the truth

That my heart is filled

Of loving you.

Oh yes, I can.

But no, I won’t.
