Look Up

Image result for looking up

When a heavy heart is bleeding

Life is receding

And yet

Nothing to show

While the outside world is teeming

I think I’m dreaming

The odds?

I do not know

*

(Refrain)

Look up

My love

Look up

You miss me yet? stand up.

Look up

My love

Look up

*

Love is a sickness

I drown in misty thickness

Living,

Hanging by a hope

Give me a sign, now

Somewhere, somehow

I can’t

Yet I must, must cope

*

(Refrain)

If you look carefully, you miiight see the poem’s rhythm resembles Depeche Mode’s lyrics from “Enjoy the Silence” a little bit. Amazing lyrics, catchy song. But gah, how the resemblance reeks with this one!

Someone

Image result for hand reaching out

Every thought

Every step

Every element tingles with the know of

Someone

Someone

A twinge of distant pining

Life is just a tale declining

Take me,

Unbidden nightmare

*

(Refrain)

Someone help

Someone why

Someone heal my hurting

I wonder, wonder, cry

It’s a’hurting

It’s a’lurking

You are far but always near

Someone: tell me why

*

Where were you last?

Are you here too?

(Here too?)

And where was I?

You’d never care

A duration, of

A mind-boggling expectation

In the heat of NOW

Be my lie, already

*

(Refrain)

I might have to stop being vague with song topics.

 

 

Song: Kindred Souls

My first attempt at making song lyrics. The nature of lyrics themselves feel different from poetry because each stanza needs a specific rhythm. Furthermore, I’m not a musician and therefore, I don’t have an original melody that serves as a “starting point” for lyric-composing. If that makes sense. Okay, then. *Cracks knuckles* It’ll just be me and my expertise, then. And some model lyrics to take inspiration from.

Seeking out the one this time

You can’t get any better

I reach to you in my mind

You’re my personal love letter.

*

Any window pane

Is a box of gloom

Can’t you see that I’m looking

At a world of lonely doom?

*

No, you can’t get any better

*

Seek me out,

Kindred souls

Find me now,

‘Cause I’m hurting, hurting, hurting…

I don’t want to meddle

Just tell me now:

Can you find me yet?

*

You, embedded with charisma

A grace, a warmth: you’re my kind

I look from a distance, I shy

Am I the kindred soul you seek and find?

*

You’re no angel, it’s true

But still, I can’t get rid of the thoughts for you

If you exist…

Can you get any better?

*

No, you can’t get any better

*

[Refrain]

Seek me out

Kindred souls

Find me now

‘Cause I’m hurting, hurting, hurting…

I don’t want to meddle

Just tell me now:

Can you find me yet?

A’right, what do you think?

Also, I looked at sample song lyrics. Turns out that unlike poems, they don’t have compunction that indicates pauses between the lines (periods, commas). Just food for thought.
