Let me brush your hair
Strand by strand
They intertwine with mine as I lean down.
And if I comb this entire lifetime
I hope the gods will allow us to meet
In each and every lifetime.
The scent of you lingers on my clothes
After lying under the blanket
The smell of you
Reminds me of the smell of home
Even though I used to find it cumbersome
I guess we’re all looking for a home
So in this lifetime we forever roam.
I feel as though I can’t get enough of you.
As if I want to sink underneath your skin,
And feel your beating heart in my palm.
Like your whole existence was made for someone like me
And your eyes were made just for me to see.
The same way I was made for you to see
Or the way that I came to be.
At times I think I’m selfish.
If everything were to end,
But we can stop it from happening,
If it means we would be eternally apart
I would rather let it burn down
Than for us to part.
In hope and in disappointment
Tomorrow is a new day.
Won’t glory the next time be a better repay?
Hold your head high
For tomorrow is a new day.
I dreamt of a stranger so vividly once.
A face that I’ve never seen before
Sitting on the bus, as he stood outside
There was something upsetting but then I saw his eyes.
The only word that came to mind was beautiful
A pure, unadulterated feeling of beautiful
And all my anger went away.
Writing used to come from pain
Memories, mistakes and blame
Somewhere down the line it’s become harder
And harder to dig and find that pain
For it became lessons that weren’t in vain.
Sometimes I try to reach out
But it seems so far away.
There’s always a price to pay
Or consequences for another day.
It’s as though I understand the desires in my heart
But I also understand the responsibility of my actions.
So I’m destined for inaction
Which in itself, is action.
I’m being greedy, I know
But suddenly I want to see your face show
Though I’ve never even seen it so
I feel your hurt so far away
And it makes me wish I could take that pain away.
I was confused for so long
Wondering why I’ve been trapped by this for so long.
But I think I now understand
That I was finding closure all along.
So that I have no regrets,
And this moment is where I belong.
