My world

This is my world:
Where no one cares but me
A place I wouldn't give up for Tag Mahal
Here, I'm no stranger to darkness
'Cause really that's my only comfort.
Sadness came to me at night in a veil
Whispering words washed in tears
I could not remember what it is she said
But my pillow I believe knows them all.
Maybe this pain is what keeps me going
Knowing that the only one I have is just me
I wish there's a hand holding mine
Or a face to reflect my smile.
But here I'm alone with my thoughts
Sad memories playing in black and white
Maybe I'm enjoying the show
I don't know, I guess my heart won't let me be.

At this time of the year
Love is like an angry sea,
With waves coming from all the angles,
Making all relationship struggle,
Tearing relationships,
The same way waves tear ships.

The ocean is endlessness with a bottom that only God's feet can get to
The intensity of the waves can always tell us her mood

The waves of the ocean is an ancient dance
The people of the water understand its power

The waves of the ocean have seen the spirit of The Almighty
Only the voice of God can silence her tantrum

  A sailing tempest ship glides
     Through the tensed waves of the ocean
  And doubts my destination home.

The stormy sea, the fear and the lost
Of dear ones amidst troubles
We shall sail to the coast.
