The Mirror of Dreams…

He won’t be the first…
And will not be the last…

To have his heart broken…
Shattered just like glass…

Fooled by the lightning…
That flashed in her eyes…

The danger and excitement…
Yet deceived by her lies…

The words of seduction…
That nestled inside his ear…

And made him pine for her…
When she wasn’t near…

He will never undertand…
How he fell for her charms…

Leaving him so blinded…
Causing so much harm…

Ripping him into pieces…
As he fell deeper in love…

Thinking she was his Princess…
Fitting like hand in glove…

Caught up in the moment…
His heart franticly beating…

But she took him for granted…
And was already cheating…

Both on herself and on him…
As she kept looking for fun…

He was not enough for her…
He could never be the one…

Who would tie her down…
Make her heart surrender…

Becoming so soft and gentle…
So loving and so tender…

It was never her style…
And never on the cards…

As she craved his attention…
But then coldly discards…

When it got too much…
Or required any emotion…

And he won’t be the last…
To have his heart broken…

I’m not locked in with you…
You’re locked in with me…

Can you now understand…
Do your eyes finally see…

That this is my prison…
My own private cell…

You’re now my cell mate…
Welcome to my Hell…

You’ll soon begin to realise…
And be quick to discover…

The life that you craved for…
Is not like any of the others…

It’s got tied up hands…
And a chained up mind…

Is this what you wanted…
Did you think you would find…

A life that was different…
Full of colour and wonder…

Days of sheer excitement…
Nights of lightning and thunder…

What were you expecting…
What the fuck were you thinking…

Did you not understand me…
When I told you I was sinking…

But you don’t fucking listen…
Only hear what you want…

Now you’ve see my reality…
And it’s starting to haunt…

Do you think I enjoy this…
It’s a fucking feeble existence…

Walking round in circles…
And looking for instances…

Of deep dark distraction…
To get myself through…

I thought I had found that…
But instead I found you…

And you wanted more…
Now you’re locked in with me…

Maybe now you’ll understand…
Maybe now your eyes will see…

She carries the weight of the darkest
clouds over her head;
she feigns joy, and
her heart bleeds red.
when i am hurting,
her presence washes away my sorrow;
she embraces me like the pleasant breeze,
yet it is her heart that she won’t
lend for me to borrow.
when she’s broke, she sings to
the lonely skies;
and the sadness evaporates
from those angel eyes.
Her voice has nested in my ears;
my memories of her remain immortal
in my thoughts.
She has fought fiercely against my fears;
her presence shall linger forever in the chambers of my heart.
Neither the nectar of the flowers, nor the dew of dusk
is purer than the curvature of her smile;
which like a treasure chest I shall guard .
She walks in defiance of malice;
and her elegance accentuates
the sparkle of her heart.
Courage welcomes her with open arms;
her perseverance and magnanimity
shall keep her from falling apart.
She is bravery in its most endearing disguise,
she holds on to her dreams
and let goes of her cries.
She is now ready to spread her wings,
and prepared to face any war life brings.

Be my Valentine…
Be my baby…

Don’t say perhaps…
Don’t say maybe…

Just say yes…
And give into me…

We’re perfect together…
Why can’t you see…

Stop playing games…
And please stop hiding…

You’re being elusive…
Instead of riding…

Along with me…
Your one true mate…

It’s in the stars…
It’s guided by fate…

Yet you try deny…
And push me away…

Each cold night…
And every long day…

Just try to be nice…
Would it hurt so much…

To give me a smile…
Let me feel your touch…

And in return…
I’ll allow you see…

The light of day…
I’ll provide the key…

That will free you…
From this dark cell…

Remove your blindfold…
The handcuffs as well…

Because I’m not a monster…
One day you’ll see…

Please, just give in…
You can be so free…

And just for a moment…
We can be as one…

Before I return you…
To your lonely prison…

She drowns in his words…

Hearing what she wants to hear…

No matter what he tells her…

She’ll always keep him near…

Clinging to every sentence…

Looking for some sanctuary…

Hoping that he’ll love her…

Praying one day, he will see…

That he could be the one…

To mend her tattered soul…

And he should be the one…

To fill her heart shaped hole…

As she’s been biding her time…

Waited patiently in the shadows…

And watched him from afar…

Whilst silently firing her arrows…

Laced with a simmering hatred…

That resides beneath her skin…

When she sees him with others…

But keeps her anger within…

As she wants him so badly…

The desire inside just burns…

And every time she’s close to him…

That loving feeling returns…

Leaving contradictory voices…

That fuck with her head…

So she keeps holding on….

Analysing each word said…

Interpreting anyway she wants…

So it makes her feel special…

But he hasn’t got a clue…

Which makes it more stressful…

As his eyes are sealed off…

Unaware he’s such a tease…

Stumbling through his life…

Not seeing what she sees…

So she twists his words…

Into what she wants to hear…

And though he’ll never love her…

She’ll forever keep him near…
