I Don’t Understand

I thought that was it
I thought you’d be it
Turns out just like before, you are just a phase

I’ve let you go and I am not holding back
You’re not the one for me
I guess you never were

And although that is something I don’t understand
I accept the truth and the fact
So I can be at peace with myself

Birthday Candles

I turn around and see
I am twenty-eight today
I am twenty-eight today
Hooray for me!

It’s grand
It’s joyous
It’s heart warming
It tickles my soul

See, we only get to be one age at a time
Only for a year
So might as well celebrate it
Enjoy it while it lasts

And so I turn around and see
And realize how blessed I am to be
Twenty-eight, today

I Danced

The music started

Slowly at first, and then…
People at the dance floor, holding each other close

I sat there letting the music fill my soul
Before I knew it I was on air
Held by someone who was close enough to be an angel

I felt his warmth as we glide through the dance floor
The music was sweeter than ever
And I caught myself holding my breath
As he guided me

I did not notice everyone else
It was as if we were the only people there

As the music slowly faded, I opened my eyes
Only to find out I danced in a dream

I’m Taking It Easy

It’s a facade,
A defense mechanism,
It’s how I am when I get broken

It’s not to be pretentious
It’s more to stop the heartache
I don’t want to get into the whirlwind of hurt
I’ll let it slide

I get to choose, you see
I choose to smile and be happy
I may appear insensitive because of this
But if I let the pain win,
I’ll die for sure
Hence, I am taking it easy on myself

Until Then

This is me slowly saying goodbye
I remember how this started with a simple “hi”
No bitterness, I promise, that’s no lie
I have to drown the emotions, now they slowly die
I was a good start, it was fun while it lasted
But alas! Your feelings and mine contrasted
And so, this is me walking away
Giving up now to fight another day
You deserve to be happy so now I begin
Letting go of what I never had, until then
