Corner of Earth

So far From    The tugs of war Unheard sentiments, intended scars Counting on those shooting stars A world of cages in the massive jar So far From    The ugly faces wearing char Around the clock, 24 hours Beating drums and loud guitars I dream of a place and there you are So pure…

RAINBOWS AND YOUR EYES

Your eyes reminded me of a colorful aquarium, like millions of aqua creatures were swimming inside them happily, and I always wanted to make those tiny little pellets of love with my fingertips to feed them, to keep them – happy and loved.

IN THE ACCIDENT-PRONE AREA
