The Orchid Girl

Standard

I stroll along her face with my thumb
I feel
I touch
Her eyes
So delicate
Her face
Never fades
I can no longer hear her voice
I close the door
I clear my mind
No, all I can hear is still
The drizzling rain
Her hair does not move a bit
But I fear she’d feel chilly in such wind
I hold her close
Next to my heart
I lower my head
And again try to have some sleep

The Figure

Standard

I look at you
A blurred face
Can’t tell where your eyes are
Or where your mouth is
I look at you
A figure
Whether you’re weeping
Or smiling I have no clue
I stand here
I stand tall
Thanks to you

The Hostess

Standard

Come inside
Welcome to my mess
Make yourself home
You know I never know best
Stroll across
Tiptoe through
Enter the core
Recover my soul
But don’t
If you can’t make it to the end
Don’t
Even
Knock

The Capsule

Standard

Bury it
Bury it somewhere
Somewhere so deep
Somewhere so remote
It’ll be beyond my memory
Sink it
Sink it to nowhere
A place faraway
A place no one cares
Leave it to time to capture all its dismay

The Song for You

Standard

I wrote you a song
To tell you to leave
I wrote you a song
So you have this song
Even if you don’t have me
I wrote you a song
To keep you company
A song about self love
A song about positivity
But I wanted you to stay near
But I just wanted you near
I secretly hope you stay near
I secretly wish you stay with me
