A New Leaf

I want you to burst out

From the bud of

My past mistakes and

Bad habits. Out of

The me I wish to

Drown in the sea.

Of all my sins and

Malefactors that have 

So far pulled an ocean

Of saliva to the dirt 

Ground of Earth.

Derive your pigment of bright green

From my faded hopes 

And ambitions which have 

Been murdered before their time.

Gather strength and

Stability to your stem

From the decayed trees 

Of my past fruitless life.

Use the rays of sunshine waisting

Away on my browned past

And produce your meals 

To hold your body strong 

For the new me 

Engraved in your womb.

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..
