The Sea Is My Home

I feel at ease and calm

The sea, it helps me becalm.

Time is slower there and all worries are washed away

Sitting on the beach soaking the salty air makes it the best day!

My toes dig deep on the sand

This place couldn’t be more grand.

I take a dip and swim all the stress away

This is quite a nice getaway.

Before Bedtime

Getting ready for bed, all excited and dandy

I can finally rest my head on soft pillows I have handy

I peep through the window and something caught my eye

Something beautiful that I cannot deny

The moon smiled but with a different color

It smiled bright red, that I’m sure

I smiled back, silently thanking for a good night.

Swing By

I see you pass by and often it’s not accidental,

I purposely wait until you come along and yes, it’s not coincidental.

But I’m not the only one crushing on you,

Others go out of their way for you too.

You’re well admired for your character and charm,

And that smile! Oh, makes me feel warm.

So as you go on with your routine,

I wait for you to swing by while I sip some caffeine.

I Hide

I hide behind fake laughter

I hide behind half meant smiles

I hide my self esteem

Tuck it all away never knowing when it will be put to use.

I hide my scars

I hide my incompetencies

I hide everything that is wrong with me because society only wants perfection.

I hide sadness

I hide struggles

No one wants to deal with that.

I hide myself until I’m no more,

Hidden and wasting away.

Lonesome Prince

Your eyes used to shine bright

But where is the shine now?

And you used to smile with such delight

But it left you somehow.

I wonder why you lost your spark,

I hope you find it again.

I pray you get out of the dark

Come back, let’s begin.

I took out the stars for you

Pulled them close so you could hold on to them,

See their beauty up close.

Let the light shine upon that rugged face

Feel the warmth of their light and let it be your guide.

You belong with the stars, love

So don’t forget to shine.

A Phase

He was just a phase.

Much like the moon with its different phases

He came and stayed on my sky for a bit

Enough to inspire

Enough for me to want and fall in love with.

And like the moon

He disappeared one day

And slowly too did my desire for him.

He was just a phase

A lesson I had to learn the hard way

But a lesson learned, nonetheless.

Silence

The usual noise of the city beats

Not heard of today.

Today, empty are the streets

Lazy was the day.

The usual crowd are not seen

They’ve taken their long weekends

Such a change of scene.

The busy city is silent.

Peace In Me

When I finally let you go

I found peace of mind.

I found a peace within me where once there were numerous questions.

My tears have found peace

And most tears I cry now are for joy.

Where I used to have a knot for fear of not being with you,

I am now able to breathe easily.

I found peace the moment I let you go.

When I realised you were the chaos

I was able to appreciate the silence.

I am now at peace with myself

And you are now just a lesson on an old page in my book.

Gloomy Summer

Dry spell happened even before summer truly began

It’s been hot and humid, to the heat I’m not a fan.

And now on recent days it’s been rainy and gloomy

It’s like a weird summer abnormality.

But to the cooler weather, I am not complaining

I wouldn’t complain even if it were raining.

I welcome this cooler summer while it lasts

As it won’t stay like this for long, according to the forecasts.

simple Ula

I want to be rich. Rich in love, rich in health, rich in laughter, rich in adventure and rich in knowledge. You?
