Henry here?

I took him with me when it was midnight,

crying along with the beauty of my life.

He rolled his eyes and licked my blemishes,

my phone rang, he got petrified,

mama “is Henry with you?”,

Dad is asking for the last time.

I cut the call and held him up,

kissing him, wondering why is he so adorable!

He licked me back and held me tight,

Confiding I don’t need backing in my life.

Henry here! I heard a voice, wrapped in your arms,

as you are a deity in my defacing, mama.

Lap of Timberland

Let’s not try to build a castle with these bricks that are thrown at you,

maybe you’ll find something better on your own.

Wrapped in the earth beauty, unrolled,

far away from the city center, in the lap of the timberland.

where you’ll find sanity with no one to confide,

where you did go wrong, where would you could find the right,

Where was the crucial line, and to put the highlight?

Let’s not try to build a castle with these bricks that are thrown at you,

maybe you’ll find something better on your own.
