The Lad's Cries

The Lad's Cries

I run every nooks and crannies
Looking for you that wasn't found in me
Because I knew that you weren't here
But at the discovery of you I cooled off

I run and climbed every mountain
Houses built by nature free handedly
Seeking like the geologist's plate tectonic
The force behind the growing mountains

I run and erupts like the lavatory
The hot lava that escapes the earth top
And causes the volcanism on the surface
I seek to erupt the inner man from within

I run as fast as I could be with fright
Like a loaded gun that fires without end
Killing all the enemies that approaches
Seeking the advance of the next move

Till knowing becomes my soul within
And wisdom be found on this tapestry
Journey of this thousand miles away
Knowledge at last beckons at the lad's cries

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

Dear Valentine

Val' as you are,
Val' as it is,
Val' I engage.

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..
