When you get jaded, weary and old, When wrinkles of age abase your visage, When the vivacity of springtime gets cold, When your dying beauty is onstage. You'll still rise the youthful fancies in me, I'll still pry for love in your deep eyes, I'll fall for you, when your white hair's free, I'll still... Continue Reading →
Fighting flames of fire Hang onto burning wires We don't care anymore Are we fading lovers? We keep wasting colors Maybe we should let this go.......... ..........Never face each other One bed, different covers We don't care anymore Two hearts still beating On with different rhythms Maybe we should let this go ∼All we know...

(Set in 19th century) Leaving her pet humming bird free, she said, "Today I free you from this caged life, you are free to fly wherever you long to, far and wide.

And now, I see his free soul gamboling about his only pretty, purple expanse, to his heart's content, And then in the blink of an eye, he leaves for the heavens amidst those mighty, green hills, unknown, oblivious to mortal beings, Leaving me down and broken, all in tears, damped, no one to console, no...
