'Tales of the broken hearted'
Sometimes I wonder how I feel
You've hurt me but it's possible to heal
Emotions filling my stomach, I don't want a meal
My heart is breaking, I taught it was made of steel
I remember the good days, those memories I can't kill
How did it happen, my eyes stay still,
The tears flow, I try to conceal,
The numbness inside I don't want to reveal
My mouth wide open, the words are not going spill,
I close my eyes and wish all this is not real
No. I can't give up that's the deal
I'll fight for you, die for you, yes I will
I hope this reaches your heart openly without a seal
And our love should come back around spinning like a wheel

Sounds of sand in love!
If starry space no limit.. And sun succeeds to sun...
There is no reason to suppose. Our earth the only one.
Min's countless constellations cast, A million words may be 
With each a heart to bless or blast , And to steer up devises
Just think, A million heart or so.. To guide it vital stream
Without all to the boss.(love)
A deity supreme
Such Magnitude oppress my heart, From cosmic space it wings
So untimely it comes but hard to find
Relief in little things. For look!!!. Within my hallow hand
While around earth careens, I wonder what it means 
Ahhh… getting so late to notice
Only to realize it LOVE
And it’s a mystery…

* BROKEN *
Drenched by my tear, The wind rejected me, 
Fear envelopes my heart, My heart is crumbled, 
Can't pick up the pieces, The chains of loneliness grip me, 
The news of your leaving, Kept me in darkness for so long, 
In there I remembered,  Those nights you sang to me a song, 
Oh! My heart has failed me.  In some way I thought I could do it, 
But the ghost in me, Kept pushing me towards you, 
I cried not because you left, You were happy without me, 
But it's not the same now again, This time, am gearing up, 
Re-engine myself, Be friend the wind, 
This time, am bracing up, To the ghost in me I say, 
"YOUR TIME IS UP"
Since you forgot me, 
Am doing the same.
