IRIS

'And I give up forever to touch you,
cause I know that you feel me somehow...'


It’s amazing how you flood my senses, envelope my thoughts, trigger a myriad of emotions
and all the while be so clueless about it….
blissfully unaware of the storm that’s raging within me…
the rainstorm drenching my heart and invigorating my mind, the maelstrom stirred up by an insatiable urge to feel…
-vulnerable, weak, loved , hurt, lost, blown away, trapped, confined, free…complete…everything-
and all that I feel makes me stronger than I ever thought I could be
so, so powerful…invincible…

but how do you fit in?
you never realize what role you play in this musical..
never for once realize that YOU are the one making it happen
the void is tuneful thanks to you…the symphony resounding in the hollow

yes you…you the one staring right through this
seeing nothing but something you don’t relate to..
something not touching you even slightly
like you never realize the presence of the moonlight burning on
your skin while you’re asleep..
aah… the beauty of not knowing

and I thank my lucky stars that you don’t see the flesh and bone me
or you wouldn’t know what I am
I’m glad that you are far.. far away
far away from what they look at but never see…
far away from what I will never be

'And all I can taste is this moment

And all I can breathe is your life..'


but I’m not very far from you,
floating somewhere in the middle of my subconscious
running my hand over cold metal bars on a midsummer night
feeling nothing but your ice-warm touch ..
your fingers.. enchanting
embracing the breeze… I’m dreaming you up
drinking you in
making you mine…

maybe you’ll always be like the grains of time.. slipping away through my fingers
and I will love you always
like I love the moonlight- that cant be locked up in little boxes
i may not be a part of the missing pieces of your perfect picture
but you will always be a part of my perfect sky

'And I don't want the world to see me

Cause I don't think that they'd understand

When everything's made to be broken

I just want you to know who I am'

and it all fits in.

you know how?

sometimes, what we see makes all the difference in the world

sometimes, what we dont see, sums up our world
