Shattered ... Broken Trust

So hard to build
So easy to break
You mustn't have known that
But now it's too late

I thought I knew you
I thought you cared
So I confided in you
My secrets, doubts, prayers

But now we've drifted
We've fallen apart
Cause' you've forgotten
What you should keep in your heart

Only know, by the actions
And words you have spoken
Our friendship is over and done
It's my trust that you've broken

When "October" is in air ...

Crispy air and azure skies
High above, a white cloud lies
Bright as newly fallen snow
Oh the joy to those who know October !

Colors bright on bush and tree
Over the weedy swamp, we see
A veil of purple, brown and gold
Thy words have never been told .. October !

Scolding sparrows on the lawn
Rabbits frisking home at dawn
Pheasants midst the sheaves of grain
All in harmony acclaim, October !

Brown earth freshly turned by plow
Apples shine on bended bough
Bins o'erflowed with oats and wheat
And satisfaction reigns complete .. October !

Radiant joy is everywhere
Spirits in tune to the spicy air
Thrill in the glory of each day
Life's worth living when we say .. October !

Tug of War - Practical vs Emotional

Having to stay away from home, How do you think I feel?
Some say it's really hectic, some say it's no big deal
Saying is one thing and living is another
When every small thing about home comes to bother

Miss mom and miss dad
Miss them when things are good or when they go really bad
Miss them when I'm happy or when I'm drowned in tears
Miss them through my phase of overcoming fears

Miss my brother who kned what to do
Anything big or small, to get me through
Never gave a second thought on how things were to be done
All he cared about was how I could have more fun

A very small family, all staying apart
Parents would just want us to come out smart
But success tastes nothing when they aren't around
Only empty happiness all around is found

I want to get back, get back to them and say
I love you Mom and in your arms I want to stay
What will I do with the success without having the family to cherish it
I miss having you around and yes I really miss it

People call it being practical but I call it unfair
Enough of lying in bed with the same white ceiling to stare

I want my dad's lap and my brother's teasing to bother me
I want to get back to being a bird filled with life and is free

A family is what matters the most to me
And that is exactly how I want it to be

Solitariness ... Void of a Confidant

I'm all alone in the depths of despair
I look around but no one's there

No one to give me the comfort I need
No one to listen, no one to heed

I really feel the need for a friend
Someone to stay with me till the end

For I feel that life is slipping away
And there's no tomorrow, only today

Just to tell someone of the sorrows I bear
To enlighten my heart to someone who'll care

But when the night falls and I'm still here alone
I close my eyes to this life of my own

With my very last breath I will whisper goodbye
To no one particular for there's no one to cry

For my passing away so this is really the end
Things could have been different if I'd had a friend

Figuring out life

I’m trying to find something to base my life upon
Something in this strange world that goes on and on

As the years go by and time fades away
What used to be "good days" are now filled with dismay

Tomorrow comes, and then again, it goes
And my ambition to become something more, grows and grows

Around the corner, yet miles away
The life I want now, gets closer each day

All I've ever wanted was something to live for
I don’t want to be this little person anymore

I’ve been basing my life upon what others think
I wish I could go back and redo everything, every time an eye would blink

I've fought to become who I am and what I want to be
I have to remind myself that one day, I will be free

Free from the rules I followed as a child
When everything was a game and life was so mild

Now times have changed and I realize nothing is fair
And sometimes it seems like nobody even cares

It’s like no one pays attention to what I feel is best for me
And what I think about the way some things should be

I understand now, that I’m pretty much on my own
And I know a lot of what I can do will never be known

All the time, I think about everything I can’t say, what I have to keep in
And by doing this, my thoughts only get more complicated and deepen

Soon I hope to find out who I am, and what I am meant to become
I want to know where I’m going, I don’t need to be reminded of where I came from

Poet's Agony

I like to write an ode or rhyme
It’s a fun way to pass the time

After many years of composition
I have come to this conclusion

The hardest part of the whole process
And the least enjoyable I must confess

Unless of course you pay a mint
Is to get the stuff in print

Sweet Nothings ... Worthy somethings

Oh! It's the homely things
The "Come running" friendly things
The "Won't you let me help" things
That make our pathway light!

And "Never mind" the "Trouble" things
The "laugh with me" things
It's those funny things
That make our world bright!

So here's to all little things
The "Done" and then "forgotten" things
Those "Oh! It's simply nothing" things
That make life worth the fight!

No more a Fairy Tale

A princess in a castle
A prince in make believe
But if it's not a fairy tale
Then only yourself deceive

A wart upon your nose
May be closer to the truth
And if you think I'm negative
Then you're still in your youth

I believe in poison apples
For I've been given one or two
But never did my prince come forth
To keep me from turning blue

That magic mirror, I'd like to choke
For it is cruel what it says to me
You were the fairest long ago
But not today as you can see

I pricked my finger upon a needle
And saw it hurt and bleed
But there was no prince to rescue me
Not even Johnny Apple seed

I've spun the hay and guessed the rhyme
But never did see gold
I know that life's no fairy tale
Like in those books are told

What my old shoe told me ...

I'm an old worn out shoe
I am not very new

Sitting all by myself
On an old dusty shelf

My white laces are worn
Tattered, tacky, and torn

I've walked a million miles
On carpet, floor, and tiles

My slick, slippery heel
Is a banana peel
My color is faded
The style out-dated

My mate has gone astray
I'm left here to decay

Happy Birthday to My Boss cum Friend :)

A little reminder to show that I care
A few thoughts in my mind, openly share
Where should I begin, before raindrops appear?
Has it already been another beautiful year?

A true friend
Tough to find
Someone who is always kind
Words of advice; freely share
Helping hand, always spare

Tougher to find
Someone always on my mind
Listens, cares, and understands
Hardships; mutually withstands

Toughest to find
Someone like you! Let me remind
Birthday greetings, from my heart
This celebration, we must start

Happy birthday, my precious friend
My love for you, I wish to extend
Experiences filled, with joy and laughter
Special memories, I shall recall after

From the beginning, you made me smile
Accepted me, without any trial
Never judged or jumped to conclusions
Exciting friendship; random infusions

I cannot ask, for anything more
So many things, I simply adore
Hope this birthday never ends
In our hearts, time transcends
