Silence

Whilst feeling blue and under the weather,
You're the loudest ruthless noise.
In the time of overwhelming emotions.
You're the mbience and tranquillity. 

Wet my grass and make it greener,
Shines my shoes and keep me walking
Gold within my reach and some diamond under my sole.
When my mouth is eager to speak.

Rope over my buccal cord
Speaks only to myself
Only to my inner-self
In time of emotional outburst. 

A soldier,
Fighting in the time of battle,
Hands over my shoulder
Saying: son let's go home
For we've won the war 
The coast is clear and the voyage can be made.

Speaking in the time of anger
And when anxiety took the best of me
Thanks a lot; silence
The best of all answers.

Love held in hands,
Opens eyes to  hope in the skies;
Now I see light.

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Val' as you are,

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
