Frivolity in the Midst of Danger

Come on, take my hand.

There’s a stunning carnival

Right in front of us.


It lights up the night

Like a group of fireflies.


Don’t you see that we have

A chance to rule the night?


So what are you waiting for?


There’s lots to do.

So much to see.

Our hearts will guide us.

No point in holding back now.


We only live once.

We can’t waste this time away.

The night is so young,

But baby, so are we at heart.


The park is stunning.

It’s everything that

I dreamed of.

Why did I delay before?


Now that I’m grown up,

There’s no chains to hold me down.


Come on, take my hand.

The rest of our lives await!


Why are you so scared?

Is the rotating wheel barrel blocking our path?

Did the power outage cause your heart to beat so loud?


Intensive moments build up character and bravery.

Your fears are below you now.


The storm may have

Crashed the party,


But that’s not how I see it.

Being so close to danger


Puts what we’ve learned to the test.

So let’s stand our ground.

And not wait until tomorrow.


The park is stunning.

It’s everything that

I dreamed of.

Why did I delay before?


Now that I’m grown up,

There’s no chains to hold me down.


Come on, take my hand.

The rest of our lives await!

The Morning

A sun sleeps for a night,
The night weeps till sunrise,
Such a wind passes rushing ahead,
From a night full of dreams, 
Good nights are born to our lips,
Heavily said to our loved ones.

A Kiss Of The Sun

In the morning i feel your hugs,
Poured like kisses to my lips,  
Holding my chest like a taste of honey,
Like a smoke i took you in my breath,
Like a bird still i fly with smiles,
From such ecstasy i am forever soaked in your arms, 
Still your love holds me so white like a snow.

A Tendency For Love In A Forlorn Hope (An Affected Poem)



A Tendency For Love In A Forlorn Hope 




Are we falling away? This is just supposed to be a beginning.  Our

hearts tore open, jutting out of our chests.


My imploding rib cage is

so heartfelt as if tiny sharp things are piercing through my skin

—especially in that seeming

—point of no return.



I kept steady and not wanting anything more, out of this;

Except, now that our fates intertwine.



Now what am I supposed to do

to unleash my whole self 

to you?


You're great and nice—at that;

I am out of words.


Your wiles foreshadow me.

Territorial Imperative (An Affected Poem About Chances In Love)

Territorial Imperative 


You know that I could love

you with agape;


It is such a wonder that you

had stopped me on my way


But when I had to think of you

It has kept me dazed—always


My waking states alter day-to-day

Just for seeing your smiling face


A guy who would be likened

to a man, by a woman


It is unchartered territory,

But it could be the best one.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Reedited 11.23.2019 (I have merely supplanted the former erroneous emendations, as indicated below in smaller fonts); 07.11.2019 (misspelling/typographical error corrections that are affecting its sense-making intended meaning-making attempts, e.g., or losinng. perhaps < or losing*, perhaps):  

"Territorial Imperative" is a poem about getting (or losing, perhaps) our chances in love.  But this is taken from my viewpoint, of my own subjective chance(s) or lack thereof—because it is relational (at the time when it was written).  The date of its composition supposedly was on 04/18/2017 at around 04:56 A.M.

Verse 1:
I watch you slip

Further away from me

As you make your dreams a reality.

Don't you dare forget about me.


I won't forget about

The promises we made together.

Those were the days

I felt alive with anyone.


Verse 2:
If it were me,

I'd melt your cold heart once again.

Just take me by the hand.

I'll guide you through hell and back.


If only you could see me now,

Home wouldn't seem so far away.

Now that you're further away,

Our memories flood back to me.


Now that I'm no longer your's,

I feel dissonant.

Bring me to life.

Won't you take me home? 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

While listening to the Spotify playlist: "K-Acoustic(s)", I was inspired to write a song Cat Clark. Here is the bridge lyrics to it: "If only you could see me now/home wouldn't seem so far away/now that you're further away/Our memories flood back to me" (Song title: "Further"). It's a playlist of Korean songs sung in acoustic style (stripped down version). It's mainly love songs so I wrote another "love" song. You should try to write some songs Cat to get your feelings out there and express yourself better. It might help you. That's just a suggestion. Grab any notebook or piece of paper and write.


Verse 1:
Say, you're all I need.

You gotta know:
I'm falling in love.

No one but you will do.


These scars that you carry

are seen by me.

Admit it: We need each other

Like a bad habit.


Verse 2:
Out of all these scars,

Your fear of love

tears us apart

From the happy endings.



Don't worry: cast your cares on me.

These scars will disappear

as long as you are with me.

Don't ever let me go.

'Cause you're all I need.


Out of all these things I've done,

I love you better.

As time goes on,

We remain steadfast in  this love. 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Song written about loving a "broken" person. 

A World of Our Own

Verse 1:
I used to believe

n a world of our own.

Until youi take me on, babe,

I'll wait for you to notice me.


From the day we met,

I felt a spark.

I know you feel it too.

Tell me, what is it that you feel?


Verse 2:
It feels right, feels right.

With you, I could do anything.

I won't cry, won't cry.
You'll always be the one for me.




'Cause babe, it's us against the world.

Don't leave our love dangling in the air.

I won't let you go so easily.

'Cause you're my heartbeat: life's memory.



 You don't have to fear this love. 

'Cause you're the one that

I've been waiting for,

For my entire life.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Verse 2 is a quotation from verse 2 of Oceanlane's "Walk Along". No copyright infringement intended. It is a reference to that song. It's about realizing your guy friend is in love with you and believes you are "the one" for him after many years. Long story short: we lost contact but I know he's still in love with me even if I'm in a relationship with someone else.

Your's To Keep Part 1

Verse 1:
Anywhere, wherever you will go,
I'm never far behind.

'Cause I'll run home

To find you.



But, here am, I now,

Admiring the view.

I hope you think of me.

Neve ever, cut me loose.


Verse 2:
But I'm scared of

Mixing up the truth

When the best I've got

Is a falling domino.



A little push caused

A chain reaction.
I never thought that

You'd be my distraction.


'Cause you're my poison, babe.

Things shouldn't have ended

The way they did.

If only you had believed in us.


Verse 3:
 If only you'd believe in our love.

I cannot bear to walk 

Further away from this love.

Our shelter from the rain
Were the leaves on a tree

We sought refuge in.

Come on, babe,

Make a move.

Take a chance on us.

'Cause tonight, I'm

Eternally your's to keep. 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

One of the 50+ songs I wrote back in 2014. Enjoy? It's obviously a "love" song.
