thoughts in the wind

npsea = normal people see eveything aimlessly

or so i thought so two years ago...
everything is but a matter of perception

who would have thought that I would end up in this part of the world | life is full of surprises |

poem to a king
 
is it lonely or busy?
to have so many people protecting you
walled into a sanctuary
 
you wish for others to see you
yet you don't wish to be seen
 
you want protection
from divine intervention
 
do you believe in all the things around you?
you must
because you are king

so we guessed
and hoped for the best  
 
25092003
 
i smelt the smoke that dongQ smoked
the aftertaste of one's relief
leaves a sense of bitterness
in my existance
 
unknowingly i inhale the thoughts and worry of another
a burden like no other
only the owner is able to tell
but then he is freed by his cloud of splendour

happiness comes in clicks
in anticipation, we create sensations
to make believe that we are okay

perhaps it is because of others' approval that people stay together

the moon smiles in adoration
the snowflakes drift in the mist
stirring up emotions of the past
there is no future
only the present

i dream of drifting in the wind
i dream of being in a far way land
where it is cold
