Acrazed by your Beauty

There's something about her
could be her voice so mild
or her features so tender
her whole package sets me wild
i love you this way
knowing i make you smile
savoring your scent all day
i thought i had gone acraze for a while
your intoxicating beauty
making my hair stand on ends
it might sound a little witty
i'm loving you to the end.

Endless Misunderstanding


Friends quite alright
Then it came not just like a fight
Don’t know who is wrong or right
Still, it hurts like a dog’s bite

Never said I love you,
Don’t know the thoughts you knew
Just wanted to be near you
Mistakes are common even to you

Please, for friendship sake,
As I walk through that heartbreak
All along with my mistakes,
Find a place to forgive me with everything it takes.

My grieves, yours too.

whiz-biz!!! My heart sent condolence to all those who looked at michael jackson the same way i did. It's the greatest tragedy i've felt so far. You know, we never miss the water till the well runs dry. I've got a poem somewhere, i'll sure post it as soon as i'm through with it. Till then, the king of pop should keep on leaving in our hearts. I love you all...

DOOM 1 (total destruction)

This is where I had awoken
It looks so far from home
I must quickly get going
But what cardinal point is this zone
Is it that I’ve left my dwelling?
Or could I still be at home

Darkness engulfs the earth
The sun refuses to give light
The stars are weak and faint
No more are the buildings of height
The air possesses an awful scent
Not at all is a single flash of light

Getting deeper into darkness
I know I should be the only soul here
This world is such a mess
I’m so filled with fear
Below my belt, I can feel the wetness
Would somebody get me out of here?

The smokes now subsides
Could this be a dream?
It seems like a monster hides
And with the lights so dim,
This monster begins to ride
Thus, the earth starts rocking.

Presentation Day

I stood in front of the crowd:
I’m Jeff, I’m not deaf
I love to have my way, don’t call me gay
I’m loving, don’t call me boring
I’m a male, I don’t have a tail
I’m a sage, I’m not an image
I behave well, don’t call me cruel
I’m cool, never call me a fool
I love my life, I don’t have a wife
Why is it you frustrate me?

Loss of Tracks

Waking up from sleep
About to do the morning tip
Then-“who are you” asked father
I went into uproar laughter
I decided to have an answer throw
Yet I had no words to know
I screamed and ran out
I think, towards the south
To the market
Having nothing save a jacket
I demanded that I should be told
I went to a place of mould
Who am I?
I asked being shy
I traveled round looking
For where the truth was lying
Who I am was my desire
Then I had to realize after an inquire
That the truth was in me
And when I asked me,
I found out that I was me
And everything I wanted to be
And that whatever I wanted people to see,
Should be the reflection of me.

Alas! I’ve failed again
Not worthy to grace the rain
In my private life
I’m surrounded by Damocles’ knife
Yeah, I do see bright lights
But then after this tight sight,
It should be time to fall over again
And then say I’ve failed again

Considering all aspects of life
Especially when taking a big dive,
It crumbles to the start then
We say we’ve failed when
Our lives crumbles, our fame fades
And we lose our aces and jades
Hearing that sound of game over down the lane,
We say we’ve failed again

Hi failures and fellas,
I send this to your faxes and tellers
Whenever you climb a ladder and fall,
Carefully lean that ladder on the wall
Find another ladder
And see joy fill your bladder
And now, you’ll say “we haven’t failed have we?”But know that this was brought from yours faithfully

just one night

(Joromi the wrestler)

Just one night,
He had fought in the allies
He won quite alright,
That was the beginning of his worries.

He thought being a wrestler would do
Even with his strong tough skin
Just as he thought and knew,
He was the one on the winning team

He became too full of himself
He was an instrument of pride
There wasn’t a god beside himself
Death was taking him for a ride

He found himself in the middle of the Earth
Surrounded by lots of spirits
They begged for a tournament
He agreed for he’s got the beats

He defeated them all
Yes, he never losses a fight
Then he heard the seven headed spirit’s call
Death said it was alright

They went into battle
Hope seemed far from his side
Then in seconds so little,
Joromi seemed to have died

Just one night
He had had his calling
Just one night,
He had had his ending.


Piracy has gone round
To everywhere things are found
Taking a good look at me
Will say I can’t be two or three
So why is there
A miming me who is rare
And sometimes hard to see
Though, he doesn’t have a complexion as me

He pirates every move I make
So fast even without a break
A dark mischievous creature
That sometimes walks in my favour
He plays dirty tricks on me at night
At a point, I began liking him right
He follows me even to the meadow
So, I named him my shadow.

so what?

so what?
get rid of the blue feels
