These are but vain attempts to express, by one who wears her heart on her sleeve. Words, much like love, can be ever elusive... ever frustrating... like trying to paint a million stories on a single canvass. If you will read, please do not ask. Just feel. Or at least try to. The meaning is, whatever you have felt to be there, or the lack thereof :)

For "casper"



Who are you unknown entity?
You’ve had me intrigued for so long.
Your identity’s a well-kept secret
Yet you’re always in my brother’s poem and song?

Was it because of you that he’s been
One heck of an idler nowadays?
He’s gone so far from the industrious chap I knew
And that was ‘til in his thoughts you occupied a place.

One consolation at least is the fact
That the ‘feeling’ you mutually share
But may I remind you that you’re both still too young
And so you must exercise great care.

And one more favor, could you please
Inspire him to be the best that he can be.
Befriend, and help, and guide him,
And by the by, earn approval from me.
