Yasmina Arbid
An Irrational Affection

Is this he, who's endeavouring to be cute round-the-clock or is it me making him prodigy from dusk till dawn.

I ain't someone who used to extoll somebody unless there's an infatuation but this prejudiced nexus has the vigor to let me down into him and bank me on , this is making me to have an aerial talk suo moto.

Nothing is easy, nothing is certain,
Only the sea, the sun and the sky makes me happy and i think,
That's worthy to fight and for life to win.

For you're the one I still love the most.

Are gliding and sliding away.

April

On Mondays I want to be with you, to fade away the sparkles of evil for the days to follow.
Cuddle with me at night and let us slowly lose ourselves.

The countless thoughts that linger in my head make me think this won’t be right - okay.
