Lakshmi Girls’ Hindu College
Screaming eyes, aching heart, searching hands,
Tears that never stop, grief that’s never heard,
Alone in the dark, dim light surrounds the fog,
Water rising and the heat dying.
Life slowly slipping away,
Fingers grab the air, only there’s nothing there,
Wishing for a presence, a simple body that could warm,
Longing fills the heart with desire.
Finally, footsteps are heard, a body is seen and misery peaks,
For accompaniment is not what’s needed,
Escape, fulfillment, desire,
That’s all wanted by this grieving heart.

She has been through so many lies,
She doesn’t know if I’m the truth,
Told her I’ll keep her cries and never make her lose,
But she’s been hurt before and for this she is confused,
Girly I’ll stay by your side and never make you blue.
This part that I have shown,
If he ain’t gonna treat you right,
Then I ain’t gonna treat you wrong,
But ‘shawty’ is so confused and been afraid all along,
But then when I hear her heartbeat,
It’s my favourite song,
So then I reassure her to throw away her frown,
Cause like gravity I’ll keep her to the ground,
I’ll help her on her feet and never leave her side,
I’ll show her to the world,
My only mortal pride.
I know how to play the cards,
To deal the pack so heartbreak goes away,
Small smiles within a sorrow go a long way,
A tiny laugh, a streak of joy is all that she needs,
I’ll have her on the sky, floating on her feet.
All I need is a little trust and some bit of mystery,
A little bit of romance and pleasures are the key,
Just one proper moment and I’ll set you free.
No danger, no fear just glorious fun,
Me and you both, alone, with no one.
Close your eyes and let yourself go,
Dream of sliver rainbows and Cupid with his arrows,
One day when you decide to cross over to the better,
Like a fairytale, I’m waiting, forever and after.
Lost In Love
Stacy S. Sinanan
Holy Name Convent, Point Fortin
When I’m not with you, lost I feel,
as if the world isn’t real.
like if time was put to a stop,
like on mornings, I can’t get up.
Lost in love without you,
I find there’s nothing I can do.
The happiest moments, turns out to be sad,
You’re not by my side, I feel bad.
I miss you so much and I really do care,
I miss you till I see you even though you’re not there.
I feel so hurt that I can’t explain,
I feel it so much, love caused me pain.
But still I hold on and say I won’t let go,
although things turned out to be so.
I said that I’d love you forever, I’ve sworn,
That’s why without you I can’t go on.
