    Hey guys....new to this forum and this is my first post

    An angel in disguise
    What's that you do?
    Mesmerise..
    I came from a place where a mirage came close to reality
    So many pipe-dreams that could make the city's drainage system
    Plunging,criss-crossing into the vulnerable parts of my psyche
    How could i have fallen victim?

    But then "what if" can never change the earth surface or the
    laws that govern nor will it make us meet
    "What if" will not make the world fall off its axis
    I stand here and evoke the hours,minutes,seconds of memories
    gone by
    It feels surreal to re-live all those nights

    "My brown sugar"...you used to whisper to me
    My eyes lit up coz i knew we were truly meant to be
    "My greek god".....i used to whisper to you
    Your existence to me was something mystical
    I must be a prohet, for in the end.........the oceans swallowed you
    How will i ever know what went wrong when you didn't even
    live footprints on the water

    I don't want to run this mental film anymore
    coz it hits my heart right to the core
    So what am i saying?
    As much as i would like to define my world......
    All these thoughts i have about you are uninvited

    Welcome to Destee... Andreattah

    This is very nice. If you feel like a angel, then you are. Love comes in like a bandit sometimes. Attached to another. That doesn't understand. The power. Then it's gone like a tornado.. disappearing into the sky. Only to be seen when the storm starts again.

    Oh how we would love to capture the power and touch of such bliss. Left in a kiss on the heart.

    Keep flowing.. this feeling. It isn't a mirage. It seems illusional.. but it isn't.
