remove the chains

that bind me

unmask the truth

that suffocates me

reveal the slivers

that penetrates me

like the sunset

i bade farewell

to you

and found beauty

in the stillness

of dawn

by rob, kuta beach, bali indonesia, 2012

if i was with you

if i was with you . .

i would have surprised you with a gift

i might have sang a special song

then danced and pranced like crazy

till i hear that hearty laugh from you

if i was with you . .

i would have planted kisses

in your soft lips

and traced my fingers

in your warm body

that comforts me

if i was with you . .

you may have heard me speak

that i am so much in love with you . .

by Rob

my love

is it fated

like an inevitable occurence

i found you

unaware of your existence

i felt a rush

a surge of emotion

that enveloped my soul


in a state of nirvana

i drifted

gently in the air

you liquefy me

overflowing . .

i desire to possess you

embrace me with your warmth

i am yearning . .

but if time sets still

if destiny decides

that this is just a mirage

i will shed my tears

willfully accept the pain

and quietly return

in my undone

shallow grave . .


by Rob

prisoner of your love

i am

a prisoner of your love

hold me

bind and

clad me

with the

sense of touch

that i am


i am

a prisoner of your love

chain me

restrain and

contain me

with the

sentiment of happiness

that i am


i am

a prisoner of your love

enslaved and possessed

a follower

of your desires . . .

by Rob

a part broken

i have known that it was wrong but i still did it.  at the end, it wounded me.. like a jagged knife it pierced my lonely heart, then adding to the scars that i already have.  i pretended to be blind, i was deafened..  for i felt this thing called love.
