Corner

A little place to call my own
Where I can think, and be alone
It isn’t any special place
But that is just where I belong

I know some people think that I’m
A loner, but I disagree
Some time with just your heart and soul
Is time well spent, for I am free

Knowing

What if what we know
Is not what I know
What if what we’ve done
Is not right for everyone

The way that we think
Is not what they think
So why make them think
The same way we think?

The same difference
Is different from same
Difference is different
But difference itself

If what we perceive
Is not what we believe
Should we still believe
The way they should be

What if what I feel
Is different from the rest
Even if I’m different
I still feel at rest

Lost

Someone give some word of truth
What is right, and what is wrong
Time goes on, clocks go ’round
In this world, do we belong?

Run in circles, going nowhere
Wondering what the answer is
Up until the end we wander
Through the unsure world this is

Paper Towns

Paper towns of paper men
Paper walls of paper dens
Untrue people with untrue stories
Untrue medals with untrue glory

Plastic models of plastic figures
Plastic handles of plastic scissors
Unknown questions and unknown reasons
Unknown fate and unknown futures

Walking With Happiness II — The Call

Gold
The color of wheat
The autumn wind
So sweet
I see a vision
Of our past
And the shadows
They cast
Night and day
I regret
All the hardships
That we’ve met
Is a tear
A pearl

Night and day
It leaves me thinking
What happened to
The old times
We were
Together
Walking with happiness

It was warm and lovely
Back then, when
The whole world was
In our hands
The memories
Come back to me
Why did I set
The barrier
That keeps us away
From each other

Night and day
It leaves me wondering
Why I let go
The old times
We were
Together
Walking with happiness

Night and day
I think it through
I never can tell you
The way I want to
Heart to heart
The closeness
That saves us from
Loneliness
But I left you
Something I shouldn’t do
And it leaves me dreaming
We are
Together,
Walking with happiness
Side by side
Forever,
Walking with happiness

A response to a poem written by Silver, Walking With Happiness

Which is in turn inspired by the song by The Best Pessimist

Barrier

Beating a steady tone
Is it a heart, or just a heart?
Else why am I sad
When we’re apart?

Far, far away
Where I cannot see
If you are looking
At me

Is distance a barrier
Or just a number
That separates
One another

Dreams are bridges
That connect
Our souls
Direct

I’m dreaming
Hoping
Wanting
Wishing

Are you there
Out there
Somewhere
Nowhere…

Fireflies

For whom you shine your shining light?
For what you fly each night?
What picture do you paint for us?
What message do you send?

In trees you hide, on leaves you rest
Always on the run
Yet with light, you show yourself
So beautiful, so fine

Among the dots, do you spot
The one you love the most?
They’re somewhere there, waiting for you
I know you’re looking, too

Are fireflies souls of fallen stars
That light up every night
Dear light, dear peaceful light
Please lead my way home
