Fun

I’ve been living in this city where everything is

Navy, white, black, brown and grey

Sometimes I want to splash yellow onto this dull canvas

Maybe even add pink and orange in the middle

Then red at the corner with a hint of bright blue

Hyped, I’m always hyped whenever I imagine this city in vibrant colours

Ah, I just want to have some fun

Cloud

It’s true that I’ve been walking beneath the dark cloud

It was an inch above my head, but since that afternoon

A new sensation has strucked my mind and my soul

Still, I can feel the cloud’s presence above me,

But it is just different

It isn’t as heavy as usual and it isn’t as dark as usual

Tonight I’m here to recall what happened

Without hesitation I let these two words slip

From between my lips

‘Thank you’

Thank you, Stranger

For smiling so genuinely that this cloud shifted farther

Reach

You are the person who always stands in the middle,

Listening to both sides with intention of

Bridging the gap between two souls

You are the person who brings people together

And the person who wonders if

Your heart will ever aches for someone,

Your soul will ever reach out to someone

And if someone will ever reach his soul out to you

Grown Up

And while you are sitting alone,

Looking through people who are walking in front of you,

Memories creep into your mind

Favorably without pain nor sadness

Simply flashing some old pictures to remind you

How far you’ve come and how you’ve grown up

Blessed

‘Why did I do this?’ said she

‘Why didn’t I do that?’ said he

Regrets wrap us close in their arms

Dissatisfactions blind us with flashy images

We’ve been trying to take a single step

To get rid of their arms

We’ve been trying to clear our sight

To get a better overview

Guess small efforts worth the time and energy

Because indeed, the fog eventually clear up

And we finally come to a realization that

We’ve always been blessed

Always

Calm Down

Loud music, people talking,

Phone ringing, glass clinking,

Crowded room and lively night

What do you call it? Fine night, you say?

Not when you hear yourself screaming inside

Thought that, in situation like this your mind won’t wander

Thinking about past and future, here and there, how and why

Tonight could be a fine one, if only you knew

A way to stop messing around with yourself

The voices you hear inside your head,

The thoughts you have at midnight,

The emotions you feel,

I know, it’s overwhelming

But, hey! Calm down!

—DNP

Old Days

It was you

The one who chose to part,

Who wrapped and packed everything up

The one who took the first step to leave,

And bid the last goodbye

Yet you are the one

Who can’t stop reminiscing about the good old days

—DNP

Hide

Maybe it’s not because I can’t,

Maybe it’s because I don’t

Don’t want to close my eyes,

Don’t want to rest my body,

Don’t want to fall asleep

Maybe it’s because I am afraid of the reality

That this silent night might disappear

In just a blink of an eye,

And the reality that I can’t hide in the dark any longer

—DNP

Bliss

From up here you finally realize

How beautiful the life has been

With a touch of green and brown

From the place where you stand,

The blue sea and sky,

The white clouds,

The horizon,

All of them seem to be in the right place

And now you can’t resist it any longer, the urge

To be one with the beautiful life underneath

While to jump off this cliff

Is for some rather terrifying,

You find it blissful
