From Brutus With Love
It hurts when you know that trust is something you can't get. The great Julius Caesar didn't and so was the fate of many before and after him. When kindness, love, concern and honesty get interpreted as weakness, they rise and stab you from behind at the first possible chance and then leave you to bleed, a sad painful death. At least Brutus finished off the King fast, some mercy. But will I be spared from the pain... No, I think...
They say the King of Rome,
covered his face; resigned to his fate;
gave up his fight, seeing a face in the mob;
shattered by the thought; ...
Care-Free; But Why Me?
I go visit the waves to wash my feet,
and with it the pains of a day.
Which began with songs so warm,
and midway turned cold as ice.
By the waves Da Gama crossed,
watching the splendour of the Arabian Sea.
This place was were I learnt to run;
holding hands of my guiding stars.
