Everything is wonderful and magical in the eyes of an innocent child.
The world is fun to explore and you just want to jump and run wild!
Curious of many things, everywhere you turn is whimsical.
In awe with a lot of things that seem astronomical.
You see beauty through your innocent eyes.
As for me, you are the beauty and it’s no surprise.
Maybe on a different lifetime
I’ll be the one to fall in love with you first
Maybe then, I’ll be the one to pursue you
And maybe, maybe then we could be together
Walking down the street on a cold night with you
My hands were cold and I thought yours must be too.
So I took your hand and held it tightly
But I realised almost immediately.
It was not your hands that were cold
It was your heart that was like ice, which I knew I could never hold.
I’ve been cursed to love more than I should
Cursed to feel more than any human being should feel
Cursed to fall for people who can’t or won’t love me back
This is my curse.

Your morning coffee
Your shade on a hot summer’s day
Your dark cloud
Your rainy day
Your raging wave
A heart attack
Your no one
I am and I am not
What am I really to you?
I couldn’t love you for it would be a lie
I couldn’t let you wait on me or let you say you’d rather die
Than be alone and without me.
For what you felt for me was never love, not at all
It was infatuation and wanting, no, not love at all.
To hold your breath if I told you to
That would have been too much power I’d hold over you.
You were wrong for me for I never wanted or liked you
And I truly am sorry for I could never learn to love you.
They say I’m lonely because I am alone
They say I haven’t tried falling in love just because I have no significant other
They say I haven’t truly had my heart broken because I’m single.
But don’t they know I’m at my happiest when I am alone?
Don’t they know that I’ve fallen one too many times for the wrong person?
And don’t they know that single people has had their hearts broken more often?
Prince charming is a myth or perhaps long dead
For no longer do they rescue damsels, they end up hurting them instead.
But sometimes princesses still wish for a knight in armor
To climb the tower, profess undying love and be their savior.
Someone to vanquish the evil witch and break the curse
To be there for better or worse.
Still, no longer does a valiant prince come and the princess no longer waits
They are all forgotten in the past now as they forge their own fates.
They are all but whispers, carried by the breeze
Because castles no longer grow on trees.
I lost my lover some years ago
I don’t know how I lost him
I simply just know.
I might have lost him at sea
Or from the mountains
I might have lost him to music
Or art perhaps
I might have lost him through time
Or perhaps hindered by distance.
I’ve never met my lover
Fate wasn’t as kind to us
I know I lost him in some way
I just hope it was not from someone else.
Hold me like holding the stars in the palm of your hands.
Let me trickle down your arms.
And gaze at me like you gaze at the night sky.
Let me lie in your arms like the sun sets at the end of each day.
Love me like tomorrow will never come.
