All for nothing

All for nothing

I have waited for you patiently

From one season to another,

From drought to floods,

I have waited.

Now that I have seen you,

I wonder,

Was the waiting was worth.

All for nothing,

All for nothing

I wish I was not his best friend

I wish I was not his best friend

I wish I was not the one
He calls when he is trouble
seeking for help

I wish I was not the one
He visits with his casual shirt,
no perfume, or
before he brushes his teeth

I wish I was not the one
He tells everything about his life

I wish I was not the one
Who has to understand
his weaknesses.

I wish I was not the one
He calls his best friend/buddy/pal

I wish I was the one
He acts perfect with

I wish I was the one
He pulls his best shirt,
fragrance and smile

I wish I was the one
He tells nice thing, takes out,
buys flowers and chocolate

I wish I was not his best friend,
But rather he woman he loves.

Look at me

Look at me

Sitting here all pretty yet you don’t see
The fact that I’m doing nothing with my life
I’m not anyone’s wife, instead I’m having fun
My life is not done, at least am better than you
And there’s nothing you can say or do

Gosh am tired of lies,
You say am good when you don’t believe in you own words.
You hate the fact that I’m alive,
Yet am trying to survive,
I struggle like any other man on earth

You’re my number one fan,
Instead of hating the fact,
Just embrace it,
Denying it won’t change a thing.

Am pretty, what a pity
Your loss not mine
So look at me now.

A cry of my heart

A cry of my heart

My face is stained with tears,
I don’t think you understand me,
For you think I have all you could ever want

I need to know how it feels,
To be a wife,
To be a mother,
To raise a family of my own
To be acknowledged and known

Are you still wondering?
Wondering, why I cry?
I have told myself to stop crying,
I wish I could listen

Is that too much to ask?
How long must I wait?

No short cut,
So I got to wait,
Just like a baby waits for sunrise to play

Help me Lord,
As I wait for the sun.

The one and only

The one and only

I felt my heart drop,
As I watched you go
It’s like I died that moment.

My heart, poor heart,
Nothing matters anymore!
No laughter, joy, or happiness

May be am giving up too fast?
May be he will come back?
Was that the one and only one for me?
Did I lose my chance for ‘happy-ever after’?
These questions are killing me.

Oh God, Tell me
Was he…
Was he one and only?

I hope he was not,
For I have a great love to share.
And still I need love in my life.

Mr. Gentle Hash

Mr. Gentle Hash

He came to my life,
Like a wind that harms no plant,
Gently my heart opened,
Like a flower opens to the rain

Soon, everything was fishy,
The care, faded away,
Without warning!

My heart was left hang on a spider rope
Assured of falling and breaking
I don’t even have a chance to plea my case
Or even a second hearing.

Something will forever be misunderstood,
I wish our eyes can see into the hearts of others,
May be then I will understand
All the questions he left in my heart

Much as I want a knife in my hands
All I can do is to shake off the mad,
Life seems to have more in store.
