5: Free Verse | The One You are my best friend; yet you are my worst enemy I despise you, but I still love you deeply. I would say things I don’t mean, I would regret them later, probably, You are my diary, a place to keep secrets, a place that is known to my feelings, You are the first person to know all my news, from big to small, My first A plus, the time I hit the ball, And the moment I am engaged, I tell you all, You are always true, forever to me Whatever I did, you support me with glee, You were there for me, whenever I need you to be, Even around the world coming here in bare feet, We do things for each other, when others don’t. We shared our laughter, our tears Our secrets and our lives. You are what hold me together, You are the one that tell me to hang in there when I ask myself why I am here We think of each other, during the tough times we’ve been through, We are each other’s life, You are me, I am you, A bond so strong, like ours, can’t be broken Our love and friendship is forever strong, We are never apart, or ever will be, We’ll be in each other’s heart, Forever and ever, from now till never, We are best friends, and rivals till the end, In one simple sentence, we love each other, We are that and that says it all.
6: Pantoum | Air I’m living in a moment like this Where I can believe I can freely fly Have you heard of the heaven’s bliss? Like the moon and stars in the sky Where I can believe I can freely fly There are angels living amongst the clouds Like the moon and stars in the sky They sing with harmonious sounds There are angels living amongst the clouds They guide every heart that wavers with fear They sing with harmonious sounds And heals tainted hearts all crystal clear They guide every heart that wavers with fear Have you heard of the heaven’s bliss? And heals tainted hearts all crystal clear I’m living in a moment like this
