My Friend

You were so perfect to me
I would have given you anything
Just to keep your interest
I never pulled away from that kiss
So soft and so gentle
I cherished you instantly
Without a second thought
I wanted to be more then just an infatuation
But apparently I was just a distraction
I told myself "don't fall for him"
Time and time again
Not to let my emotions run too deep
For life with you may not be something I could keep
You made love to me, but only as a friend,

Falsa Sinceridad

You came into my life unexpectedly
And you filled my world with felicity
I didn’t envisage this way to ensue
Didn’t expect this kind of value

Grateful when you pass this way fortuitously
In this nameless place I strangely dally
Am I under your spell that makes me spellbind?
I can’t get out of this reverie you hurl behind

Seconds, minutes, and hours have outdid
I am keen on you oddly, seems not stupid
You mean the whole thing to me now
An angel that smiles so sweet, I vow

Sanguine Ode of a Cynical Lass

You left; that was a year ago
Knowing no reason why but still, you go
I cannot coerce you to stay
You’re not blissful with me, what more can I say

Moving on is not that very easy
I cried since you left, that’s a melancholy
I have waited, if you’re going back
I’ve been longing for you; censure fact

Yes, that was a year ago
But still, I love you so
Seeing you with another girl
Is a feeling that I’m starting to fail


You told me not to cry
It’s very hard for me to try
I cry because you give me reason to
I cry because of, no one else but you

Since you left me alone
I asked, what’s wrong for the I’d shown
Is there something for you to hate me?
Why you asked me to set you free?

Now, there’s no reason for me to stay
Nobody will catch me when I want to lay
All of the plans we made had faded
Now that we fall apart and not committed

Past Whisperer

It is very ridiculous to reveal
Afterall what happened, I love you still
And it made my heart cry out
And a feeling inside of me wanted to shout

I admit, it hurts me when you did it once
But my heart melted with your simple glance
I’m afraid to let go of the past
For you are the reason why my heart beats fast

I always remember you when I hear our song
I know, loving you this way is very wrong
How will I give another chance for you
If there’s in my life, a somebody new


A few hours have passed. with out you in my glass,
Co'z phone is not ringing, and I dont feel like singing.
I missing you already, thinking of what your doing.
I know your going to thee, Oh shit i just wanna hit my head on a beam.

I hate it when I knew what I've gotten my self into
though I know i have to go through
This is just the first part, of us being apart.
Ohh, Darn it really tears me apart.

Alone, by Edgar Allan Poe

From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not taken
My sorrow; I could not awaken
My heart to joy at the same tone;
And all I loved, I loved alone.
Then - in my childhood, in the dawn
Of a most stormy life - was drawn
From every depth of good and ill
The mystery which binds me still:
From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,

Apology is a lovely perfume

For every time your sad this rose
will cheer you up,

For all those times I made you mad
this rose will make it up

For the pain I brought to you
this rose will help us get through

Planting my hopes and dreams
this rose will blossom
like the water that runs
down the stream

For everything I did to you
this rose will always stay true

Hoping and wishing you will
except my apology
this rose is my biology

Like the leaves that fall
this rose will stand tall
