So apparently I wrote my first post 3 years ago. This is a little something different from what I usually write, let me know what you think.

Running errand after errand,
Not really sure where we are going,
Just keep on walking….

Hoping beyond hope,
That we will find a destination,
What is it?
Do you know where we are going?

What are we doing,
Travelling from city to city,
Finding a place to call home,
Somewhere we feel safe…

A hideaway,
Somewhere we can just lose ourselves,
Gain a piece of mind,
And chill out for the day…

Finding the little joys in our lives,
Things that make us happy,
And keep us going,
Keeping those things close to you…

Family, Friends, Love, Music & Sport.
These are mine,
What are yours?

Gone But Never Forgotten

Looking off into the distance,
As the raindrops trickle along the window,
Wondering what you would be doing,
On this rainy day…
If you were still here,
Would you make all the jokes,
Like you did back then….

Wonder what you would think of us all today,
What sort thing would you say?
Would you be proud of me,
What advice would you give me now I’m grown…

That’s one of the things I think about,
when rain comes pouring down….

Your memory is forever ingrained…
I will never forget you….

I still have the thank you postcard,
You sent to me back then,
And read when I’m feeling sad…

I didn’t that you would be gone so soon,
After you sent me that postcard….

Miss you granddad….

See you in the stars.

My Reason For Falling for You

Thinking about all the time we’ve been spending together,
Walking for miles without even realising,
The distance, the time that just passes us by….

Talking about everything and nothing,
Holding hands and joking round,
Kissing randomly….

Why does it seem so easy…

Smiling next to you,
Laughing so freely…

The shell that surrounds me,
Breaks down with you…
Letting you understand me more and more.

Cause I smile to myself,
Whenever I think about you….

And my heart warms,
Whenever I dream about you….

You’re the one I look forward to seeing,
The one I can’t wait to message or talk to,
After a long day….

You give energy when I have none,
Give strength when I think there’s no more left,
Make me happy, when I’m feeling down…

And that’s why I’ve fallen for you…

My Angel-Part 2

It’s been a while since I wrote anything on here, so I thought I should write a little something. Here’s something I cooked up quick as a sequel to ‘My Angel’ to one of the first songs I ever wrote on this blog, hope you like it.

My Angel
How is it,
You know exactly what to say.

To make me smile in that way….

My guard drops around you,
As if I’ve known you forever.

My Angel,
How is it,
You know exactly what to say.

To make everything alright again…

You’re the person,
I turn to when I’m troubled,
And don’t know where else to turn…

Cause you seem to,
Understand me like no-one else does…

And when we’re together,
I just want time to freeze in that moment.

As the world still moves around us…

A Dream

Here’s a short little something, hope you like it.

Lost in a world of my own,
A make-shift reality,
Only a dream maker can see…

Standing up high on a mountain,
The wind blowing through my hair,
The beautiful sights surrounding me….

Wandering if this serenity,
Will one day,
Become reality…

For You

So I have finally started watching Bleach a bit late I know but I am on about episode 30, so I wrote this from Rukia Kunchiki’s point of view to Ichigo Kurosaki . Please bare in mind I have no idea how their relationship is going to go, I just like the idea of them two haha.

What is it about you?
That made me,
Go soft inside…

Before you,
I could cover my feelings,
Just did my job,
As a soul reaper,
And carried on…

But for you,
I gave up everything,
Knew that one day,
They’d come for me…

Thought you were done and gone,
But you came back to save me…

There’s so many things I need to tell you,
But I don’t know how…
All I know is I want to stay by your side,
Helping you in any way I can…

I think I love you…

Putting a shell around my heart

So started watching House, and thought of this while watching it.

Letting go of the attachments that I hold dear,
Putting a shell around my heart,
To protect it from the pain,
You put it through…

People think I’m cynical,
That I don’t let people,
Get close to me.

Truthfully its just a trust thing…

One day I will open up again,
It will just take the right person,
One who believes in me,
And understands me for me…

Let’s just wait and see,
How the story unfolds…

Addicted to You.

It’s been a while since I last saw you,
And I can’t get you outta of my head,
Cause I’m so addicted to you…
You made me smile,
Every time I saw your face…

You knew just what to say,
When I was feeling down,
You knew how,
to bring my spirits up again.
You made me laugh, you made me smile…

Now I can’t get you outta of my head,
Cause I’m so addicted to you…

I miss you,
The guy who would be there,
For me.
The one who understood,
My needs…

Now I can’t get you outta of my head,
Cause I’m so addicted to you…

I remember we use to talk,
About such random things,
But it was cool,
As long as I was with you….

Now I can’t get you outta of my head,
Cause I’m so addicted to you,
Wandering  what your doing,
If your thinking about me,
Like I’m thinking about you…
Thinking about you…

Gentle Rain

So it was raining gently this morning and as I was thinking I came up with this little poem. I hope you enjoy it. 😀

Rain is peacefully pattering down,
It suits my mood,
As it washes away
the impurities of my heart…

The gentle pattering
is not like Heaven’s crying,
But as if the Heaven’s are
Cleansing the Earth,
Watering and revitalizing its resources…

Cooling hot tempers.
Helping those whom cry,
to hide their tears.
Those who are sad,
to feel as though someone knows their pain.
And calming the hearts of all others…

On this peaceful rainy day…

When nothing seems to be,
Going your way,
Lost in an abyss of your own making…

You turn to run.
But it just keeps,
Following you…

What do you do…

In your mind,
Your shouting for help,
Screaming for someone,
To hear you….

But all that returns,
Is silence.
A cold reflection,
Of what faces you…

You just need a little boost,
Someone to stand,
By you…

It’s nice to have someone,
To turn to,
To be there for you….

You don’t,
Don’t want to,
Face it alone…
