ILLUSIONISM

Lover

This time, I write a friend,
the one the truth hurt once again,
she couldn’t handle me being sincere.
Love her, is what I don’t,
but she wants me to say though
I can’t even remember her name.
What they, what they know,
that, is what they like to show.
For them we’ll throw away our dignity.
They don’t understand,
cuz reality is far from them,
a simple melody’s enough for me.
He says, like a fool,
“Whatever you want me to do,
I’ll do it only cuz it’s for you.”
Stand up and be a man,
you know you can’t live without them
but she’ll respect you if you turn away.
Hold him,
caress him,
and wait one more day.
Love her,
adore her,
then be on your way.
Like this, what I say
is if you think I want to play,
I’ve got better things to do with my time.
Come on, and say to me
that you want to pass the night with me,
you know I won’t think any less of you.

Love Her

Why do I love her?

Read My Mind

So the time has come to decide,
what is his and what is yours. What you desire,
is hidden deeply, where even hands can’t reach.
Now that your dreams have become a blur,
signs that your will has begun to decay.
Your ideas, your thoughts, your hope fades away.
Read my mind…
So you see what you want to see,
but that may not be what you want to believe.
You know there’s more, what are you waiting for? What you want is…
the feeling,
the thrill in…
the pleasure of…
So you see what you want to see,
but that may not be what you want to believe.
Just one more time,
now see as if blind,
close your eyes and read my mind.

She’s Red

She’s red, she seemed shy, then she sat next to me.
She said, “Hate you do I. So should I be here
in this room alone with you right next me
when you think I’m your absolute enemy?”
She’s red, I was blind but now see only red,
and white like the lies that were better unsaid,
and blue is the raging sea stuck in her head.
Red like the time like the day that we met.
Could it be that solitude has pained me enough
to leave a scar? A scar I now try to avoid.
Sadness has blinded my sight. I’m so sorry…
No more do I have faith in life and what it promises…
Only in her.
She’s red, she knew it would come right to an end.
She said why continue why not just be friends.
Then she realized what she had in her bed
that’s when she said there was some truth
she could bend.
She…the one that could hold me tightly…
comfort me…
caress me and wipe these
tears from eyes…cares for me not. Though I can’t
say for sure, I choose to believe instead…that she is
indeed the one that will bring forth to me a new era of joy.
Could it be that solitude has pained me enough
to leave a scar? A scar I now try to avoid.
Sadness has blinded my sight. I’m so sorry…
No more do I have faith in life and what it promises…
Only in her.
She’s red, she said she trusted me with a doubt,
thinking that she knew what I was all about.
She seemed like the angel, then I figured out
that she was the one between us that was to doubt.

Zoom In

Still, today,
I can’t find the way,
to express in words, what to me,
they said, I’d foresee ahead…
the road I would go down, but
still, they see,
ignorant as can be,
a world that revolves around
me and he
who try to succeed
doing what we were meant to do.
Still, today,
and try as I may,
it’s you that will decide my
fate, is what,
they never want to discuss.
They think it’s only up to you.
Now and again,
I think of how we met.
Knowing that I could have been a week away from,
her, and e-
verything that she is to me,
is what I thought they couldn’t take from me.
She is sad,
I can’t believe what she has had
to decide and to compare to
me, or a road going only where they show,
what everyone else has done except for you.
Come here to me, with the last kiss I will receive.
No more can I have you in my arms and
feel thy skin getting softer and softer,
and hotter and hotter,
wanting more and more of me.
