    Enough! ~


    Stop counting the money!
    Because it's never enough!

    Run out like water; That's money!
    Stop spending lavishly; Not enough!

    For awhile ~

    Wild eyes searching me for awhile.
    While my eyes don’t smile.
    Smile of my lips...
    is seen from a mile.
    Mile of distance.
    I force a smile.
    Awkward me.
    I’m so weird.
    Odd circumstance.
    My teeth are seen...
    while I hide my fears.
    and wipe my tears.
    It’s not long; Just for awhile

    Time, Heart & Behaviour ~ (Part 1)

    “Time decide who do you meet.”
    I want to meet you, one day.
    Meeting there; We will greet...
    each other; There’s so much to say.

    “Heart decide who you want to be with.”
    Either her or me. Who you rather be with?
    Are the old pictures hints? I ask to be sure.
    Really? It’s her, huh. Hm...I don’t know.
    Tell me, please. Cuz’ I need to know.

    “Behaviour decide who will stay in your life.”
    Excuse me. I want to be your future wife.
    Hubby of me. That’s who I want you to be...
    and you may call me ‘baby’; I love you...
    very much; I hope, you also love me.
    I want to spend my whole life with you.
    Oh, my dear crush! I wonder about ‘WE’.
    U are the only one for ME, till Hereafter.
    Real-love lasts for forever ever after.

    No I'm not the one for you,
    Nor you are for me,
    I can never be happy with you,
    Bcuz all I do is bleed.

    Carrying a heavy heart,
    Watching my emotions depart,
    Here I lie in the acatalepsy,
    That is slowly becoming my idiosyncrasy.

    I hope this doesn't hurt you,
    Bcuz I never loved you,
    All we had was an illusion,
    Nothing more than confusion,
    Driven by impulse, never by passion.

    I know you will find your lucky stars,
    And I wish you a new start,
    I don't think it will be easy,
    But let's stop being so klutzy.

    I shall close my eyes as I effervesce my duende,
    I hope you don't think I'm smiling,
    Bcuz this is the sound of me dying.x

    1.acatalepsy: incomprehensibility of things; the belief that nothing is certain, only probabilistic
    2.idiosyncrasy: way of thinking that is characteristic of a person; peculiarity
    3.klutzy: socially inept
    4.duende: mystical charm of one's art
    5. anagapesis: falling out of love for something or someone

    I DON'T
    W A N T E D
    TO BE


    I love that word “Love isn't soft."
    For it tell the truth that love isn't always like loaf,
    With warm smooth texture neither has a sweet aroma,
    That can ensnare in plate since heart growls without coma,

    ~ Life

    Floating in a galaxy with burning meteor,
    With a massive exploding of an emotional barrier,
    Making me choose whether to survive or be alive,
    So instead, I just write a poem I can't contrive,

    ~ Tradition

    With huge smiles and honoring gesture,
    Show a great length love and respect,
    We follow this tradition structure,
    Yet somehow in self it's hard to apply & direct

    * Based on characteristics of my Doubutsu Uranai-
    Purple Sheep (See also #NuEmSheep)

    "Your type of women tends to have high aspirations, and hold huge expectation and ideals toward others. Therefore, in contradiction, you may be feeling dissatisfaction on the inside.

    Although you value relationships with others, you also like being on your own. Therefore you may suffer from your own contradiction.

    Although you are a passive sort of person, you do possess perseverance and are a person of action. Once you are on fire, you show unbelievable energy."

    * While based on my birthdate, at Sln.me, it stated that 1 of my characteristics is 'Dissatisfied'.

    Paradox ~

    Sometimes, there's a lot that I expected.
    Sometimes, I become very dissapointed.

    High aspirations,
    huge expectations.
    It's a contradiction.
    Feeling dissatisfaction.

    Sometimes, I like to socialise.
    Sometimes, I like to isolate.

    I value relation...
    ship. I like isolation.
    Another contradiction.
    Suffer. Dissatisfaction.

    Sometimes, I am passive.
    Sometimes, I am active.

    Passive. But, person of action.
    On fire, to the point of exertion.
    Again. It's a contradiction.
    Dissatisfied; Dissatisfaction.

    I prefer waitress to Hamilton though.

    Hamilton is a 2020 American historical fiction musical drama film consisting of a live stage recording of the 2015 Broadway musical of the same name, which was inspired by the 2004 biography Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow.

    Love lyrics ©soulo

    I find myself
    caught in the
    Imprinting myself
    as a necessary note
    in the rhythm of your life.

    Filled is a limelight
    with unspoken
    lyrics of amor
    Avowal, within
    limited locutions
    my love was
    limned in lines.

    Tickling the ivories
    composed is a piece
    greater than Beethoven,
    At the most soulful scale
    an orison made
    to follow me
    along the stages
    beyond friendship.

    in an ensemble
    euphonious than Hamilton,
    Along the choir of
    prodigal performance
    At the most passionate
    pitch, a yen prayed
    to never be apart from

    One chilly night,
    He saw her face which shines as bright as moon
    Her smile sparkles like stars
    Her wavy hair touched his arm
    He saw the unconditional love in her eyes
    He got smitten by it and said yes under moonlight

    The moon blesses them by sending his favourite stars!!
    Ohh dear,'stop imagining and get back to your reality' said the moon and hid between clouds!!

    Is this love? To cry at nights?
    To lost the one I just started
    Having a fancy? Is this justice?
    To live with gold
    But I am lonely?
    The evenings are
    Beautiful But baby
    don't tell Me your
    Eyes aren't as be-
    autiful as my love for you. Is this
    What you call being rich is? To 've
    A bank of gold and a throne? Ha!!

    Then you are
    Unlucky and
    Stone hearted
    For being rich
    Is being with
    Love and life
    Spending with
    Family. But that
    Line doesn't su-
    Its me any more
    Since she left me
    The world left me
    Forever. Am I born to just cry? And do nothing?
    am I the star that gleams and un-gleams at the
    Same time? Maybe even the fuse bulb has a b-
    etter luck than me stumbling over poetry to find
    His soothing lines in my cheeks. That never happen

    Create time it's the only
    And love the worst thing
    One you think human ever
    You will lose. Spend time cause . Made, ha

    . An
    soul ensn-
    ared within a
    gigantic building
    Of expectations
    and peerpressure
    chained by the
    centuries old rules
    of society, choked
    by the unbending
    words of criticism
    waves of guilt and
    and regret were
    waiting to wash her
    away but until when!
    This needs to come to an end. She
    planted the seeds of dream within her and
    nourished them with her blood sweat and tears .
    The thundersof hatred cut the tiny wings of her
    dream and the wildfire of treachery burnt
    her dream into ashes. she tried to find
    happiness within the small
    seeds of her hope and
    watered them meticulously
    with her tears and fortified
    them with the strength
    of her poetries
    The exotic bloom
    started blooming
    with the touch
    of spring but
    soon the strong
    blister ravaged
    the garth . The
    flowers wilted
    their scent behind
    Her dreams are

    Love ❤️ Frog �� ~

    I'm a Love Frog.
    Hopeless romantic.
    A true-love seeker.
    'Jumped' to ex-crushes.
    Now, only one crush.
    Which is you, my dear.
    You're my sweetheart.
    I flog about love.
    I romanticize...
    through my poems...
    and songs. You, my muse,
    who touched my heart, then,
    broke it, must unbreak...
    it! Thick fog has been...
    cleared. This time, I can...
    see you clearly, not blurly.
    When I dreamt of you...
    again, I felt a sense of...
    Dejavu! It seems like...
    reality. But, as I woke up...
    and realise it was such...
    a sweet dream, it look..
    like a thick fog that....
    has been cleared.
    I wait for true-love.
    Full bloom romance.
    Fullfilled fairy-tale.

    Flog = Promote or talk about (something) repetitively or at excessive length.

    * #LoveFrog is 1 of Jeon So Min's nicknames. (1 of my favourite members of #RunningMan. My mama like her too. Maybe, because she remind her of me? LOL. See my other posts: Crazy Poet & #CheerfulGiraffe )

    2 meanings of 'thick fog that has been cleared':

    * My crush's face was clearly shown, in my dream this time, instead of blurred a bit, in my previous dreams.

    * The sweet dream is like a thick fog. It cleared when I woke up. So, I'm back to reality.

    / Happy Father's day /

    [ Inspiration : Martha Graham - “a dancer dies twice — once when they stop dancing, and this first death is the more painful.” and Black swan song by BTS ]

    I tried to do a concrete of a man with wings and his reflection below him ^_^
    Background - Pinus densiflora - Japanese red pine which is my Korean birth flower. It means brave, courageous, 'fidelity' and 'fortitude'.
    It is inverted to symbolise the misfortune of the man below, who is also a father.

    Black Swan ~

    Misfortune tails the shadow of fortunate fate
    Which turned the Zephyr that lifted my wings up
    To become brutal storm that crushed, severed them
    I mourn the death I feared, wings of passion tied to a wheelchair

    Wailing without an echo, screams of silence
    Feet sinking in moist moors mundane, still stuck
    Wings sewed up patchwork, weighing with fright
    Claws I grew to dig on destiny's path and crawl

    Flawless footsteps frozen in life's winter season
    Yet I'm a brave lone pine in suffering snowfall
    Fidelity defines my work and fortitude refines my life
    And when I let go of my fear, flaws kneeled at my perfection

    For art is my legacy, I - father of forsaken dreams
    Can birth resilience to revive whatever I lost
    I have no tether to my blood born by umbilical cord
    But my passion will run in his veins and my two wings will shield his arteries

    •| I've lived my first death, literal death is no more to fear
    I'll strive to death but never quit trying with my head held high |•

    My feathers will guard your fragile fragrance to not diffuse
    My wings will teach you to pin wreaths on the coffin of fear
    - an Ideal Father ( of art, nature and relations )
