Caught off guard

Caught off guard

You were present after such a long absence

A heart returned from whence it was banished away

Why now must you come back and play

Watch as time goes by and I remain lost once again in this endless sway

Your song keeps playing on and on

And I ask myself what on Earth is wrong

Caught off guard

I saw again a moment of humanity

It’s rare in beauty

So much so that even a minute of time to keep you insight and beside

Different and the same

Lost the ability to feel distain when you’re nearby

Caught off guard

Out of sight and mind

Dressed in navy, black and white

Been so long since I saw such a sight

Like the moon surrounded by scattered stars

You are the Venus and the Mars

All is is fair in love and war

Silently going by with brief mentions of adoration

I have lost the ability for preparation

Caught of guard

You’re a walking devastation

Lost the rhyme and the routine

Around every corner you linger by

A gaze elsewhere until mine is averted and there you return to stare

Caught off guard

Lost the new route and found the old path

Now I’m sitting in the winter of our discontent, even Shakespeare would be on the warpath

Caught off guard

You’re a walking distraction of perfect satisfaction

Learn your language in secret

There must be more to life than this anguish

Out of sight and out of mind, refined and defined

Nothing needs to be sacrificed when one and one combine into two

Keep on appearing and disappearing

In the end the two will become one

And in the end when all is said and done

Love will remain the heart and soul of a number one.

Caught off guard

Vacancy

Vacancy

It started silently until it grew

The melody piercing and distinct

How the thoughts and feelings are in sync

In the absence your presence is greater

The heart races and breath is laboured

Such mysterious behaviour to either be savoured or cause for concern

Vacancy

Sliding down the wall

Ended up on the floor

You presence made gravity vanish then return, bringing everything to the floor.

Vacancy

The expectations were non existent

Only to make an unprecedented return

As you stroll and command

Scattered thoughts are chasing fragments without concern

You stand at the centre of the stage

Kindly give me a route to disengage

The courage to surrender and devote the limited time I have to promote and achieve.

Could this circumstance be the truth pathway to where we are meant to be

Vacancy

Past the point of serenity

The clouds linger with the sun

You turned away

Lost in finding the path

Locked away on with a screen illuminating your gaze

Always surprised

Eyes shining in wonder and confusion

But you continue to carve a path

One so unexpected and unintended

Vacancy

Such was the density of our predicament

The domino effect was instant and perfect

Not a chance given to reject

And now we linger on in different worlds

A new language being learnt

Lesson after lesson, could well end up as a profession

At fate’s discretion

Vacancy

You created a legacy that is beyond belief of perfection

An accidental introduction

Through different paths are woven and set

You remain the one to make the imperfect perfect

Enough to reflect you true beauty, silent though it may be

Regardless of the time, situation, or location

One thing shall remain and always be

The single vacancy reserved solely for you

As you approach dressed in your dark navy and blue

Commanding the questions and the fate behind you

Vacancy

East Sea

East Sea

Representing an old memory

Taking reality away and improving it

These roles are reversed

You initiate out of the blue

This unpredictability is beyond my reason and rhyme

Too obvious for my mind

An over analysation of your mannerisms

No matter the level I study to this degree of unfamiliar exchange

The signals clearly out of range

Set a float in the East Sea

Oh the familiar fantasy

Educated enough to obtain a degree

What will it take to gain some clarity

East Sea

Our roles reversed

The situation is either a blessing or a curse

Lines feel rehearsed

Like night swaps places with the day

When the moon comes out to play alongside the blue sky whilst the sun is away until darkness comes to claim the prize.

East Sea

Play a melody

Go through the motions

What a commotion

Roles reversed

Torn between a blessing and a curse.

East Sea

It just cannot be

Unless heart lingers on in midst of a flight

Ambitions are false, reactions fabricated, a heart burns in an icy flames’ embrace

East Sea

You started in the summer

Lingered on until you were gone then reappeared again

Restarting the education into a nation, a language, a creation, all through your influence

East Sea

Gazed locked away

Focused on me

Same words uttered

Reactions vary

But the gaze remains the same

Eyes pierce the soul and erase the heart

Forget the answer and found the question

Now set a drift in the east sea

Such is the ironic of a metaphor

You ended up being.

Silhouette 

Silhouette Lest we forget

Riddled in thoughts 

Sent away

Far away

You are so unusual that I cannot look away.
Silhouette

Unpredictable in every way

Though I search and seek for a sign of your presence today

Lost again 

In wonder and questions

Why is it to you that the heart beckons

Even for the smallest of seconds
Silhouette 

Dancing in the dark 

I got carried away 

Lost in the expectation of your display 

Coming along just for today 

You are a domino that stood tall

I ended up being the first to fall
Silhouette 

Perfection is rare 

But it’s written in your stare 

Silent and discreet 

Filling a heart with concrete 
Silhouette 

Always in the darkest of colors

Yet brighting some form of blinding light

Look away I say but my head is elsewhere

Just as yours is whenever we walk each other’s way. 
Silhouette 

Lest we forget

The irony in the absence of time when you are present

Captivated by the view 

No denying 

Dropped all reason 

Only for you to stoop low and retrieve it in silence

Incline your head, even the respectfulness fuels a rebellion of recklessness

Silhouette 

In tears over the perfection of your own reflection 

Conjuring so many questions

Dancing in silence 

Gazing and praising till the senses are left in a gaze 

The existence of time is absent in your presence 

Better I return from whence I came 

Add fuel to the fire 

Even in your darkest attire you bring the brightest blinding light 

Oh what a sight of a silhouette 

Just one more to prevent regret

You’re locked safely in memory 

Making the ground sway and spin

Going to end up giving in 

Walking straight into the darkness of your light 

Silhouette, silhouette

Better to risk it all than live in regret 

Haunted by the shadow of your silhouette.

Paper airplanes

Took all the emotions and wrote them down

Folded the page into a paper airplane and threw it out to fly far away

For it to fall straight to the floor

They come and go 

Wherever the air flows and wind blows

Rain or sun or even droplets of snow

Throughout the seasons four

As delicate as paper airplanes

We have decided to play a game 

To see where the path would lead 

Whether it would take heed

Heart was racing once again

Warm air filled the room or at least it seemed to when he arrived out of the blue

Turn the collar up 

The volume is already high 

Concentration up in the air, taken off on a paper airplane

Is the suspense driving the anticipation to breaking point

All we do is discuss for the briefest of moments

A silent situation that feels so compromising.

Like a paper airplane caught in the rain, this feeling will not remain.

Had a thought and put it away 
Then you conjured up another and let it stay
Even when far away 

Somehow the presence remains 

Paper airplanes 

Just for the day before being allowed to flow away, without cause of concern.

Why does it feel like the room is about to burn? 

One moment it’s clear as day the next your mannerisms are chilled as a mid January days 

The mind is at it again 

Paper airplane

Take these thoughts and feelings away 

Don’t need them anyway

But they are here to stay 

Paper airplanes

Perhaps if I were braver 

Perhaps if you were clearer and more open 

This situation could take flight

Instead of lingering on a paper airplane 

Taken us no further than the floor

From summer to fall to winter

Sooner or later we will run out of pages 

And the paper airplanes will be no more. 

Then folded pieces on the floor.

Paper airplanes 

Mind went wondering 

Mind went wondering, opens the door and down the staircase to the hall.

Like a moth following a particular light, disregarding everything else into the blue darkness that cloaked you in curiosity. 

Mind went wondering

Gaze always inclined to the floor or on something invisible and unseen.

Appearing and disappearing like a supernatural thing.

Still the mind continuous to wonder, pondering on a singular thought that spells out your frame and name. 

We ended up out in the unknown, retracing steps until eyes were met in reunion and divisions were banished. 
The sentiments linger in the cold winter mist of confusion 

There goes the mind again, wondering down to the parking lot 
or along the deserted corridor. 

You were the guide and the architect, the master in making, bringing about something breathtaking.

The ground was shaking

Mind continued wondering forsaking reasons

Perhaps it is under the influence of something unseen. 

Thoughts and wishes are expressed unseen yet visible to all. The writing is on the wall. 

But still the mind went wondering down the hall, following your steps as you once did mine. 

Both in beach of conscious restrictions 

 Mind continuous wondering 

Scenarios linger on 

The light grows stronger 

And in the end nothing is left but unspoken words left unseen 

Your gaze always locked away

In the blink of an eye you hesitate to look back, sending the mind rushing to trace your tracks.

Before you disappear once again. 

Mind went in wondering down the hall.
