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?

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.

On the Road

On the road I stopped and see,
A family who shares so glee.
The image of moment I stare,
They were so fine, so fair.

How nice it is, a family of care.
A family of joy, a family who share.
The old people’s responsibility,
Are seen done in reality.

I bid farewell to the scene.
A perfect portrait kin.
On the road I walked alone,
To face the world my own.

Bothered Heart

by CJ Lopez

Midnight thoughts of our memories,
The nights that we've been together.
Out of the blue alone,
I'm missing you.

My gypsy mind brought my heart
to an uncertain place to wander.
The escaping endeavor of oneself,
but back by your sweet gestures.

Unstable sense, tries to bring back
the old I that ones stand.
Here I am, I shout  for harmony
Clear what's inside, clear my heart.

THINGS TO REMIND YOURSELF WHEN MEETING SOMEONE WHO CAUGHT YOUR INTEREST

  1. Be genuine – Remove the mask and let him/her appreciate you for who you are. Then if he/she doesn’t? Would that be a big problem? Don’t tell me it is because my reminder no. 2 is,
  2. Don’t get fall that fast – Not the literal fall but the fall that you stumble to the pit of love. That’s a very bad idea. Prevent yourself; I know that we all have our foolishness inside of us. We are all born dumb in love that does why educate yourself darling.
  3. Don’t rush things – In the name of love, I mean the genuine one, let time molds that feelings. Remember that great things are worth the wait.
  4. If you feel that she/he’s the one make effort as well but limit yourself. If you feel like he/she feels the same way that’s not the go signal. VERIFY! DOUBLE CHECK! It hurts to assume.
  5. You better get to know that person. Ask him/her about his life. In that case you’re letting him/her decide if you are worth the trust. The past relationship that she/he’s been with, I hope you’re not a rebound or a second option.
  6.  If it’s not HIM/HER, then he’s/she’s NOT!

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?
