Paul is an Engineer. A graduate from a Catholic University. A rebel and a romantic...

Joy is gone replaced with sorrow...
Overtime the wounds will heal...
Ellaborate words thrown like arrows
Yet here I am hurting still...

Never in my mind have I imagined
In this lifetime I will be forsakened
Every laughter now reimagined
Lost and yearning now awakened.

Please listen to my appeal
Alone in the dark I cannot conceal
Understand my pain and desire to heal
Look..Look the mockingbird kills

Chase my far away
Hunt the ambitions that went away
Alas, I sprinted too much I fell
Rallying behind the sound of the bell
Listened to the unsettling noise
In my mind I have no choice
Escape not possible we all can tell

Maybe I think too much
Anger filling this golden cup
Gasping for air as I lit this match
Give me the drift I hope to catch
In this heart, a clock saying times up
Enigmatic universe begging to stop....
