can’t get through

i won’t raise my voice,
i won’t let myself be heard.
it’s a pointless battle,
with how your mind works.

Now Or Later, I’m In No Rush

We are beyond this space and time.
If only our lives could have aligned.
Like the stars in the sky.
Magical and divine.
Wondering if the past life us has ever gotten a chance to meet.
Or did we live life without passing each other a simple greet.
And if the afterlife us will ever have a glimmer of hope.
Because it’d be an utter shame,
if we never got a chance to be each other’s one.
Even if it’s only for a short period of time.
Undoubtedly realizing, we’d carve each other’s hearts with the words;
“you’re mine”

That’ll be Enough

I just want to spend some time with you.
Go somewhere fun and get lost with you.
All of it just to be with you.
And at the end of the day,
If your heart’s with another.
I’m okay too,
Because,
We had moments only you and I shared.
And I know, nothing else could have compared.

Why couldn’t we have met sooner?
Maybe a month or two before
you said your I do.
You didn’t even get a chance,
to take a second glance,
to see if he’s the one for you.
And now I’m sitting here,
contemplating if life
is ever fair.

Over and Over Again

Look.
Just look at this beautiful sight.
It’s as if I’m falling in love all over again.
This view is something I’d do everything I could,
to keep forever.
Yes, I’m talking about you.
This scene wouldn’t mean a thing,
if it wasn’t spent with you.
