There’s no perfect haven, without you.


I’ve been fooled by my ego

I’ve been fooled; adorned in



No one ever told me that,

there is beauty in the imperfect 

I only saw your inadequacies 


No one ever told me that,

 everything evolves 

becoming something 



My tongue became the rope that

Tied you down in insecurities 


I killed your self esteem;

Comparing you to the 

illusional neon signs on

the highway.


I’m surrounded by obscure 


floored by an 



Oh, I dispelled the light

Of your presence

Embracing illusions


There is no perfect haven

without the light of your being



I was a fool

And I never knew that

Love accepts, cherish,

And appreciate things

Just the way they are.


Ah, I was a hypocritical 

Pious fool


I pray that this darkness 

doesn’t choke me to death 

Cause, I’m slipping slowly

to an unknown universe,

Without you.

We build bubble coves,

to hide away from the storms 

of life, 

knowing too well that

 it could only provide us some 

temporal warmth, and safety, 

yet we rebel against 

the voice of our spirit


The spirit who only yearns 

for eternal pleasures, 

and lasting security 

for our own benefit 



we been reduced to 

mere seekers of  

temporal bliss,


being caged in an exaggerated 

emotional prison?


We’re wrapped in facade

Dancing to the tune we

never requested.


Who am I?

Who controls me?

Why am I dancing to this song?

Is there more to know than this?


Illuminate the darkness—

Chase it through the desert,

Out of your soul;

Burying her in the oceans depths


You shall return to your primal self

This is not you

This is never you

Find you, and live you


Oh, earth-maker 

Oh, earth-maker

Maybe, you can give me

a reality to hold on to.
