These OPTIONS leave me with nothing but a frown,
The FUTURES now seemingly bleak,
A SWAP outta here, my heart does seek,
These TREES and HEDGES haven't a hue of green,
All GREEK to me does this seem,
No more SECURITY in this can I see,
I give up and stand to DEFAULT, someone please BAIL me!

Why must I chase it?
Can I just float along?
And live life the way I see it?
What is a dream?
Why must I see an unfulfilled desire?
Can this not be good enough?
And not burn within me like a raging fire?
What is a dream?
Why must I be aware of this notion?
Can reality be a little simple?
And not be subject to my imagination?
What is a dream?
Why must I always hold it in my heart?
Can I ever be free?
And not have you as the only dream I've got???

9. The only use he puts his phone to is for listening to music, playing games, surfing the net, reading books, clicking pics, a GPS device, using it as a remote for his laptop, etc, etc. and you suddenly realise, it was supposed to be used for making calls!
8. He still laughs when he receives a text message.
7. When his phone rings, it's an event! (Ah! So that's his ringtone is what you say to yourself!)
6. You still get to hear his phone ring!
5. You still have to force him to use a deodorant.
4. The last time you saw him comb his hair was...wait a minute...the last time you saw his hair groomed was when you combed it for him in 5th grade!
3. You can name at least 6 girls that you know are very good friends with him.
2. He still sleeps like a baby and turns in at 11!
and the top reason to know your son is still single?
1. You read his blog and find out!
(Mom, dad...pretend you did not read this...)

That reality is a lot different than what to me it seems,
This is no place for confounded words seeking an unfound love,
I am far cut off from this world of push and shove,
They say clear your eyes of hopeful dust and see the world with clarity,
But whoever told them I wanted to live in their harsh reality?

So I was travelling in a ric with a couple of my friends and as is the norm, had a very general bearing of which direction it was that we needed to take. Somewhere along the road, we reached a point that seemed vaguely familiar...as I realised where we were, I remarked
"Oh! I know this place, I got lost here!"
My heart skips a beat,
I'm almost on the floor
The ground swept from under my feet...
I can't believe my eyes
They refuse to tear away from you,
In vain are all my tries
Cause you're the most beautiful thing I ever knew...
What I'm feeling I can't explain
Not in a thousand words,
Indifference I try to feign
With nothing said, nothing heard...
I try being collected n cool
Tryin to go about my work,
But I'm certain you think me a fool
I saw you look at me with a smirk...
I see you come my way
And I know I love you too much,
All my pretence fades away
As I melt in the warmth of your touch...
The professor's teaching and he's quite loud,
It must be important cause everyone's engrossed,
In his words and numbers, everyone seems lost,
I'm lost too but to me this is just noise,
Cause in my mind, it's just your thought that does reside...

Please give up, don’t even try,
You know you’re pathetic at telling me a lie,
Wipe off that tear of regret,
Sit with me and enjoy the sunset,
I’m happy treasuring what we had,
If we’d part with a smile, it’d make me glad,
I can’t cry over what I haven’t known,
All I know now is happiness in coconut ice-cream and a waffle cone…

Right...since I am always pestering people with this whole "Why am I still single crib..." I keep getting all sorts of new and improved answers. This latest one though takes the cake...
"You're the kinda guy girls know their parents would like...unfortunately for you, girls aren't looking to take a guy home yet!"
Mind blowing I say!
Funny how in this cup of coffee
I see a metaphor for my life,
I know there’s a bitterness in it for me
But it’s the bitterness that I like…
There’s cream floating at the top
It hides the blackness beneath,
I know I will gladly lap ‘em both up
Then wish I’d have stirred it all just a bit…
I take the first sip
And think a little sugar would do no harm,
She looks at the twitch of my lips
And adds more sugar, sweet as her charm…
I look at the cup and then her eyes
My foolish pride comes in the way,
In that instant to her I lie
“I don’t like it sweet,” I say…
She smiles knowingly without saying a word
I shy away from her stare,
It’s as if all that she’s said I have heard
Strange is this bond we share…
The cup gets empty as the coffee gets colder
This evenings drawing to a close for me,
“I love you!” is all that I don’t tell her
But then neither to me does she…

And I dont even need a reason,
Of where we're heading I dont even think
Nor does she in any season,
We head out in the dark of the night
Along roads we've never been before,
We land up at a beautiful sight
Somewhere along the sea-shore,
Never has she failed to cheer me up
And remind me of how much this life I like,
A million such memories to sweeten my tea cup
Of my first love...my dearest friend...my beautiful beautiful bike!!!

Emotions aplenty churning inside,
My tears hidden behind a façade of pride,
Sometimes that I wanna be strong but I cant,
My tired breathless heart stops to pant,
From life I want so much more,
On the wings of ambition that I wanna soar,
But yet my goals lie undefined,
Battles that wage on endlessly in my mind,
Not yet a man but I am no more a boy,
Define me please…I’m still searching – Who am I?

How do I manage to get it all wrong?
When I have thought over this conversation for so long?
I open my mouth and the words sound so unfamiliar,
These aren’t the words I had rehearsed for you to hear,
You’d think that maybe I’d be better off just saying a polite “Hi!”
But you know I’d goof it up too, no matter how hard I try,
I have made a fool of myself and how,
I’m gonna shut up and not say a word…starting now!
There isn’t a reason to me, lost alone I’m fumbling,
Nothing with clarity can I see, at every step I’m stumbling,
Everything I have ever needed, you have made sure I have gotten,
Even if I haven’t succeeded, you have never let my spirit dishearten,
But I sit here miles away, and the times spent with you seem long gone,
And mom I’m really missing you a lot today, Dad I wish to you I could come home…
