    Sit down and read me like a book
    Don't judge me just by my look
    Like every other human, I too
    need to be love more and more

    Friends do not draw near
    Dying without notice is all I fear
    Living with a broken heart
    Only adds pain to my body parts

    Acting like I'm all strong
    Perhaps that's where I have gone wrong
    I needed someone to lean on
    But it seems I only have me, myself and I

    I believe things will get better
    But will things ever get better?

    I look inside the mirror, I hate what I see
    All the lies hidden behind my mask
    when I pull it off my face

    I hope things will be fine
    I'm tired of this life of mine
    I wish for great things to happen
    But in the end will I ever by happy?

    To The Ever Selfish Friends

    How many sleepless night I had
    How many times had I sacrificed my sleep?
    Waiting for someone that haven't exist

    Then it came upon me again
    The pain of betrayal
    Just the price I have to pay
    For being way to loyal

    The passion you pretended
    Was only to obtain
    But when my charm has ended
    The charmer in me you disdain

    It hits me hard again
    The pain of abandonment
    The pain of shattered trust
    Is there no friend who's true?

    Farewell to you my friend
    I'm going somewhere else
    To those places where I'm reciprocated
    Where I'm no longer alone
    In my own abundance

    Heart Of A Loner

    Deep in my heart I'm a loner
    living my life a stranger
    In my shelter

    I've tried to blend and be sociable
    but the more people i meet
    the more disappointed I am

    I'm a loner in my current state of mind
    Keeping my space like I'm in paradise
    There is nothing you can do to make me feel otherwise

    Deep in my heart I'm a loner
    But in my loneliness I found solace

    Note From The Battlefield

    Dear friends and family
    From the battle field I write this piece
    With my blood as ink
    Few words I wish to say
    Before the bullet pierce my heart

    The gun shot is not ceasing
    Fellow soldiers are falling beside me
    Death had visited the battlefield
    Like a special guest of honor

    Don't feel sad
    Home I will return to one day
    Life is just a battlefield
    Not until I conquer all odds
    I will make sure not to run out of breath

    It was such a beautiful moment
    When things were smooth between us
    When there was emotions in every greetings
    When you spoke without a fury

    Like a smoke our love vanished away
    Asking myself the same question all day
    If there could be pain in a place where there was so much love?

    Things were so great from the start
    Never had the thought I would end up a pain in my heart
    Letting you go caused me so much pain
    The pain that gave me nothing as a gain

    I guess there is nothing left for me do
    That can get me back to you
    I've nothing left to lose

    All bridges had been crossed
    I guess our love is lost
    All we had turned to dust
    And my heart had began to rust

    Silence Confession

    I'm not too good with words
    But they say silent speaks
    And screams
    Even speaks louder than words
    And cut through the heart like swords

    If the words from my mouth aren't enough
    Listen to silence beat from my yearning heart

    Like loving couple
    I want to walk with you hand in hand
    As silence echoes through my eyes
    Whispering the words I couldn't utter from my mouth

    Look into my eyes
    When we go on a moonlight stroll
    As it divulged the secret of my heart
    To your attentive ears

    Under the bright moon
    And the twinkling stars
    The crickets will stop their evening song
    The bird and animals will listen
    Softly as silence speaks of my love to you

    The Dish of Life

    I have tasted the dish of life
    Some part delicious
    Some part are sour

    I have tasted life in different dishes
    The ones garnished with pepper
    And those that are salty

    I have seen men dinning
    Some served with a golden plate
    And some their plates made of clay

    Some had enough
    Some never had at all
    Who dished the meal of life?

    Some are made to beg
    Some dine even on bed
    Who prepared the the meal of life?

    A man life is a meal on earth
    And when he dies,
    he becomes a meal to earth

    Tales of my Heart

    I'm not too good with words
    But for you I would say every single word
    Not to impress you
    But to let you know what I felt for you

    I may be shy or sometimes scared
    To tell you how I feel
    That's because I don't want to seem needy
    Even though I really need you

    Three little words don't seem enough
    For you, who brightens my day with your smile
    I love you can't express the depth of my feelings for you
    I hope you know what it's in my heart

    If I had the words to describe my feelings for you
    I would be the happiest man in the universe
    But words seems to fail me time and time again
    So I have to settle for the words of this verse

    Whispers of Suicide

    It started when hope is no more cure to worriness
    But a defer to live, in this life of weariness

    Voices from the silence speaking out loud
    Forcing me to dance to an unpleasant sound

    The reasons to live became the reasons to die
    Read my lips its not a lie

    I hope my next action is understandable
    Soon I might become unreachable

    Hanging onto every tiny bit of hope of this world
    An awful voice whispers to me to commit suicide without saying a word

    Deep within me I lost all hope
    Life is too unbearable, I just can't cope

    In my consciousness and unconsciousness
    There are whispers in my head
    Voices humming something I never heard

    Dear friends and family I'm dying
    Check my lips I'm not lying

    The first time we met was when I fell for you
    It was hard to believe
    If you would like me too
    Though the thought was too hard to conceive

    I think of you everyday
    Not knowing what to say
    You have no idea, you have no clue
    Just how much I think about you
    I tried not to stare, I tried not to hide
    I tried not to show I have always hide

    I tried to let you know how I feel
    But voices inside me makes me hush
    Burying it down inside my heart
    Hoping that nothing falls apart
    I hope my heart will never be broken
    All because of my love unspoken
