Written In The Stars

She is a star
A massive massive star
With a strong gravitational force
Which keeps pulling me towards her
No matter how hard I try to fight it
It is all in vain
I keep circling around her
And I am not the only one
There are other rocks too
She loves the attention
She is a bully
Her light slowly burns me
Kills me bit by bit
She’s only getting stronger
I know she’ll never love me
I’ve accepted my fate
It’s written in the stars

Goodbye Love You Had Me

Goodbye Love you had me
Into a ditch you led me
When I tried to rise above
You drugged me with your toxic love

Goodbye Love you fooled me
With your charm you pulled me
Now that I am a bit aware
I have really stopped to care

Goodbye Love you tricked me
With your lies you pricked me
All the scars that fail to heal
Show me what was fake and real

Goodbye Love you scammed me
No more feelings damned be
Guess t’was too much to expect
Love and a little respect

If You Think That Love Is Perfect

If you think that love is perfect
Then you are a fool
You are yet to learn the basics
Come, go back to school

You expect love to be perfect
Wait! Did I hear ‘expect’?
If your love’s full of expectations
Then for you I’ve no respect

If you’re looking for a perfect love
You’re most probably ill
Love is flawed, love is silly
Far from perfect still

This Shady Thing Called Past – Part 2

Last time I think I told you
How I had locked up my past
I guess I didn’t think it through
For the solution didn’t last

It did a lot of antics
To come out of its cell
I resisted all its tricks
But it didn’t turn out very well

It stressed me more and more
To have it kicking my head
So I had to open the door
Before it drove me mad

Then I thought it was easy
To just let it out of my head
Why keep it in rent-free?
I could do better instead

So this time it was I
The one with the final kick
Waved a last goodbye
No more dirty trick

Now it is safe I’m sure
No more agony and dread
A perfect resolution
Tranquility in my head

This Shady Thing Called Past

Often I encountered strain
With this shady thing called Past
My vulnerable brain
Was about to have a blast

It stirred my focus at work
I felt exhausted at home
The feeling of being stuck
With consequences to come

So I had to find a cure
A permanent remedy
So I opened up the door
Of my brain quite readily

In the corner there I locked
My disturbing past forever
Hid the key then blocked
Its exit to wherever

And once that it was done
I felt happier and free
Applauded my decision
Brewed myself some tea

Swap Your Shoes With Me

Just how golly life would be
If you swap your shoes with me
Just for a day or two or three
I’ll be you and you’ll be me

I’ll see the world as you see
I’ll get to know your family
When you meet mine, you’d agree
That they’re all sweet and jolly

I’ll meet Joe, Jason, Emily
And your other comrades by the sea
We’ll swim for hours jubilantly
And climb on the giant coconut tree

You’ll meet Dan, Martha, Willie
They’ll crack jokes and they’ll act silly
They’ll make you laugh loud endlessly
Time will fly quite speedily

When should we start? Come, tell me
Tonight? Tomorrow? Whenever you’re free
Right now? Oh my that is fine with me
Close your eyes and count to three
