HIDDEN AGENDA

You’re my selfish wish, my greedy prayer
My rainbow’s pot of gold
A secret I’ve been holding onto
But in desperation told

You’re my grinning devil, my smirking sin
With an allure so deeply pervasive
You’re my hidden agenda, my bag of mischief
With charm so intently persuasive

COACHELLA DREAMS

As dust turns into sandstorms
Kiss me under cotton candy skies
I’ve been waiting for this moment for so long
Can’t you hear my wishful sighs?

While the sun starts setting in the glowing desert
Pull me closer to you my dear
And as the music transcends into the crowd
I’ll whisper sweet nothings in your ear

COLORS

Give me love in dark blood red
I’ll give you yellow sunshine smiles
The light brown gleam of your eyes
Makes me want to stay awhile

Hold my hand amidst an orange sunset
Explore with me through a forest green
Let’s lie under a light blue sky
With fluffy white clouds in between

Love me even when my soul turns black
I beg you not to look away
Promise to love me through the good and bad
Through all the colors that come our way

BETWEEN

In between time zones
In perpetual transition
Caught in between what’s then and now
Suspended in an endless confliction

Stuck in a constant limbo
Always finding myself in in-betweens
No roots to keep me grounded or wings to fly
No one to hold onto by any means

So I’ll just stay suspended in midair
Till someone chooses to pull me down
Because I’m always wanting to be discovered
I’m always waiting to be found

NEW YORK CITY

City slopes and skyline highs
Can’t wait to breathe you in
Live off the energy of your wonderland
Where the wheels never cease to spin

You’ll be my passionate newfound lover
And I’ll be your muse so pretty
How I long to be in your waiting arms
My beloved New York City

MOTHER’S DAY

Happy Mother’s Day
To all the moms out there
To those that have sacrificed so much
With all their tears and pain to bear

But sadly sometimes relationships can’t be fixed
And to this I don’t know what to say
Because all the damage has been done
There’s no reversing the decay

Because as much as we want to fix what we have
Sadly there is no turning back
There’s no repairing all the wasted years
There’s no filling the voids and cracks

FIRE

There’s a shade of fire I see in you
The same shade of fire in me
A color of flame that fiercely glows
That’s burning with intensity

We’ll warm each other up through winter nights
We’ll burn in summer ablaze
Keep each other alive through the dull and trite
Through all the humdrum haze

SUBTLETY

I don’t want the sex
I just want the subtlety
Of a hand held tightly amidst a crowd
Of a hug so tight and snuggly

The way you tuck my hair behind my ear
The way you sneak kisses on my cheek
These might not be the grandest of gestures
But they surely get me weak

Because life and love are in the little things
They’re in the little things you do
And these sweet subtle things you do my love
Are what keep me coming back to you

JADED

A fire in the middle of winter
Snowflakes in the middle of spring
As improbable as having a one true love
As fleeting as the romance of a summer fling

Please change the workings of my mind
Pump new blood into my heart so jaded
Stop me from settling for cold and bitter
Save me from the lonely life that I’ve been slated

MOURN

Just give me a moment to grieve
Just give me a second to mourn
To put the pieces back together
Of my heart so desperately forlorn

Because I can only take so much
Of these empty glimpses of hope
So give me a minute to lament
Just give me a second to mope

But I promise you I’ll be back on my feet
That I will someday be okay
The sun will come shining brightly soon
Amidst all these clouds of gray
