Unasked Late Night Thoughts

by CJ Lopez

 

Midnight's passed and he's still awake
The tempting hours is testing
Hey! What keeps the soul burning?
Is it the mysteries of the late night ?
Maybe just a late late show in his little way
But do you mind what's with others mind?
Unfocused and enjoying the devils night
Is she right? 
She's paranoid, jealous 
And deep inside is asking
A lot of questions haunting
Would she trust someone who stays awake at night?

by CJ Lopez

It is anguish inside the moment I saw it
A bad taste in one's mouth thinking about what caused this
Too much for an overflowing river in an unwanted rainy season
A late bloomer of consciousness, where is it when I need it?
It's too late now
I've decided my fate
I lost it
The battle of hearts
Unequipped, unprepared
Who has to blame?


moonday

by CJ Lopez

Let's all take time to appreciate the moon.
Today's Monday and the universe is sparkling above us.
Only few are lucky to have been blessed with the scene.
A magnificent look of what life is.
This life is our galaxy.
Some shines like a star,
A planet of possibilities maybe.
Some are just like the moon,
Who can't illuminate by himself.
Who can't bring light as always to many.
But what makes it special,
Is its wonders and mysteries.

The Road Taken

by CJ Lopez

Two roads diverged in a wood
 One is the path of many,
 The other is uncertain.
 They say life is worth risking,
 And the heart is our choice.
 I stood there thinking.
 What will be the right choice?
 The way of people who are sure
 Or the way that still needs to discover.
 I neglected the many.
 I took the road of nowhere.
 The path that challenges my capacity,
 To know what's beyond my world.
 The road where mysteries are to be unfold.
 The road where brave souls go.
 Two roads diverged in a wood.
 I took the one less traveled by,
 Now I'm lost.

When Love Bites by CJ Lopez

Pull me closer, gently, passionately
When it is love that binds us together
How much is to unfold?
For to love is to be naked,
And there’s no room to be furtive
I am yours, you are mine.

But it seems like you don’t know how to bite back.
Those eyes aren’t towards mine
Can’t see straight, full of lies.
Don’t you know how to love? my love.
Then I’ll teach you how, let me.
We can start again, but never, again.

What might dangerous love we have
An unusual plot of a movie I never wanted.
It is when it all started bright
But it chose not to fight
Hold me, I’ll never let go
I’ll never, ever go.

Call me stupid, call me insane
I’m high with the memories,
This selfless love of pain.
Do I have to cry for you?
I speak to you, my mind teach me not to,
I don’t know, tell me, do I have to?
