Forest.

We all are like forests
Fragile,
A spark is all that’s needed
To bring down these fighters.

Our bodies react
Withering away with each spark
We all want this fire to get extinguished
But we are scared of getting burnt.

I chose to be a firefighter
Been putting out other fires
While the savage combustion
Within me
Cause my innocent roots to decline.

Forever poisoned,
Ashes remain
Making me a wise man
Who is just dead inside.

An Imperial Affliction.

A puzzle it can be
Finding out what this life holds for me
It’s not all doom and gloom
I assure myself
Life stands up and brings me down to my knees.

I’m crying inside, begging for help
All disguised by a priceless smile
Constantly pushed back by the claws of society
I set this trap for myself
But will you be the one to free me?

My mind is caged
My thoughts are foggy
Got to think twice before doing anything
Will you be the one to set my mind free?

My body trembles
My demons roar louder
Suffering extreme affliction within
Will you be the one to help me?

Young And Stupid.

A cold December day, t’was
Innocents souls playing together
So delicate, so naive
It was friendship they craved

Two stood out the most
He was shy and she was brave
An eternity,
They had promised to live together
He was as generous as the sun in the spring
She saw a Romeo in him.

As time passed
Knowledge they gained
Wiser they became but,
Certain circumstances
Caused them to fall apart
No whereabouts of each other
No hellos, no byes
They acted like complete strangers.

He still believed
He could be the spark
To reignite association between them.

She had other cliques,
Forgot about him
Only remembered him
When aid was what she needed.

The phone rung
The boy all ecstatic picked it up
Only to have his expectations destroyed.

She called,
She needed his help
Stole a silver lining
From his cloud.

He was a fool to think that
She must have thought
To intertwine the threads of flaws amongst them.

She had masks to hide
The faces she had,
But he had no choice but to surrender
To the demons
He was waging war against, inside.
