PLEASE DO NOT POST THESE ELSEWHERE! THANKS. ^^

WINNER: Wulan M. (poem)

Walk Out Of Your Scent

Trying to take a breath, but it’s so hard
We both know that love is extinguished
Without you, I’ll see to it that everything is going to be fine
Just trying to walk alone
Walk out of your scent
But hardly breathing, ‘cause a piece of you still lied on my chest
Just hanging out, out from the place we always come
Then my feet walked to your place
I, I, want to walk out of your scent
Oh, baby, I know I have to forget you
Throw away the remembrances of us
Have to remove your image from my head
But it’s bitter
Like a thorn stabbing my heart, it’s painful
So hurt, making me feel down
I’m going to be fine without you
Everything is okay
Remove your name, throw away your picture
Walk out of your scent
I walk alone
I’ll empty my heart
Walk out of your scent
Erase you from my life
I, I, can’t live like this
I’ll walk out of your scent
I, I, hurt inside
I’ll walk out of your scent
I’ll erase everything
I’ll remove everything
Walk out of your scent
It’s painful to remember you
I can’t go forward if I still keep you in my heart
I have to, have to forget you
Go my own way
Walk out of your scent

RUNNER-UP: Shawn C. (poem)

Tears Run Dry

I awoke on the left side of the bed today, the side which was once engulfed with the scent of jasmine and the warmth of a summer’s ray. The imprint of a figure parallel to divinity itself was captured thoroughly into the satin sheets. Though today, it was a cold disillusion as these wonders deceased and forced me into a moment that won’t let go. It began with hesitation, the disbelief of a grievance I’d soon endure. The tears began to run dry as I cried an ocean in fetal position. I closed my eyes and thoughts of our past that were filled with elation consumed my mind as I remembered your smile could light the deepest cavern and your voice made cherubs weep in bliss. The sight of your luminous eyes through the light of the sun bewitched me as you batted your lashes, and this was the spell you cast on me as you shattered all we had. Alas, nothing lasts forever. Those glories I can’t escape. Maybe I should run away, maybe I should disappear, but where do you go when the tears run dry? Where is your smile as I’m in the dark? Where is your scent as I cannot breathe? I know that I am broken, but somehow I’m going to put the pieces back.

HONOURABLE MENTION: Arlene H. (lyrics)

Lock Me Up (English Version)

You saw me clearly through the shadows of a doorway
With another woman in my
Arms and then you ran away
Then I realized how much it hurt
I could see that, that you were crying and I ran while
Trying to explain myself and
Then you said you had to walk away
Left me drowning in my excuses

My heart is left out in the dark while I’m calling out your name
Like the fool I am, just waiting here, but it’s like you never came
Baby, please just tell me why
Baby, please don’t say goodbye
Although I’ve hurt you once, I won’t do it again
Listen baby, don’t leave me alone
With the love that I have had for you, there is nothing that we can’t do
With just a kiss and a little touch, you make me come back to you
Girl, I want you by my side
Girl, I need you in my life
Please chain me up and throw away the key
Keep me close to you and girl, just lock me up
Girl, just lock me up (x4)

I’m so sorry
Why won’t you listen to my apology?
Can’t you see that I am dying?
I am begging on my hands and knees
Just remember the good memories
Please forgive me
All I could ever want is in you
I could never find another
Can’t you tell that I love you so?
That one time was just a huge mistake

My heart is left out in the dark while I’m calling out your name
Like the fool I am, just waiting here, but it’s like you never came
Baby, please just tell me why
Baby, please don’t say goodbye
Although I’ve hurt you once, I won’t do it again
Listen baby, don’t leave me alone
With the love that I have had for you, there is nothing that we can’t do
With just a kiss and a little touch, you make me come back to you
Girl, I want you by my side
Girl, I need you in my life
Please chain me up and throw away the key
Keep me close to you and girl, just lock me up

What can I do if I’m not with you?
Even I know that I was a fool
Tie me up, lock me up, don’t let me leave
I know, no, it won’t happen again
I love you, baby, that’s the truth
Let us take our love and take it all the way
Just for you, I’ll change, be a better man
Let me love you
Me, this little fool

With the love that I have had for you, there is nothing that we can’t do
With just a kiss and a little touch, you make me come back to you
Girl, I want you by my side
Girl, I need you in my life
Please chain me up and throw away the key
Keep me close to you and girl, just lock me up

With the love that I have had for you, there is nothing that we can’t do
With just a kiss and a little touch, you make me come back to you
Girl, I want you by my side
Girl, I need you in my life
Please chain me up and throw away the key
Keep me close to you and girl, just lock me up
Girl, just lock me up

HONOURABLE MENTION: Sue L. (poem)

A story of a man unfolds…Manifold.

I loved my friend’s girlfriend.
It was never supposed to happen.

I didn’t think I would do it,
My heart had been solid.

I thought I might only be dreaming.
I didn’t want to start scheming.

I should not have taken that one step,
My feelings I should have kept.

She became my girl,
She became my world.

Now I only wish I could erase
That irreversible chase.

Our love was like a bullet,
Only she and I could feel it.

I can’t believe I committed such a crime.
That I wanted her to be mine.

So, please lock me up.
Because our time is up.

And after my tears run dry,
Maybe I will learn why.

HONOURABLE MENTION: Kimia S. (lyrics)

Tears Run Dry 2

Title: Thinking of You

I see you even when I close my eyes
Why can’t you let me go?
I watch a movie but somehow
Every actress is you
In the middle of the night
I wake up
Because you’ve also been in my dreams
I don’t understand
I try to let go
But I can’t stop

Why must I?
Why I’m forced?
I don’t wanna think of you
But no matter what I do
I only see you, I must be mad
In my dreams, in my thoughts
I’m still the one for you
But this is only a sad wish
What shall I do?
I still want you… want you

I say I don’t need you anymore
But it’s only out of fear
I don’t wanna face my true feelings
Because I don’t wanna be a weak man
But I still go
To the places
Where we used to be
What shall I do?
You don’t wanna see me anymore

Why must I?
Why I’m forced?
I don’t wanna think of you
But no matter what I do
I only see you, I must be mad
In my dreams, in my thoughts
I’m still the one for you
But this is only a sad wish
What shall I do?
I still want you…

This is my entire fault
If I had trusted you
Then you would still be here
Still loving me, still smiling at me

Why must I?
Why I’m forced?
I don’t wanna think of you
But no matter what I do
I only see you, I must be mad
In my dreams, in my thoughts
I’m still the one for you
But this is only a sad wish
What shall I do?
I still want you…

Why must I? Why I’m forced? Oh no…
Why I’m lying? Say the truth
I still want you…
I still want you…
Thinking of you…
Thinking of you… of you…
Thinking of you…
I’m thinking of you…
I’m thinking of you…

HONOURABLE MENTION: Josh N. (poem)

My Girl

It was just like any other day, ‘til you stepped in my way
You didn’t know me, I didn’t know you
The only thing we both knew was the truth
Your eyes talked, my mind spoke
We communicated through the air while them guys stared at your hair

You got me selfish, made me your exclusive
You with that guy
Screw him
I’m your guide to the true fan
To the right man

You can act all cold to them guys
But to me, you’re all nice
Left me your number like any other
Even closer than any other brother

Then you went all hot ‘n’ cold
I get why
If you think you left my heart broken,
You’ll need a second try

Went through a night thinking ‘bout you in my sleep
It was only a dream but “you rocked my world, I know you did”
From that moment, I knew what I had to do

My heart raced for the phone
That’s when I called
You answered, went all mad
Inside, you knew you wanted me bad

Like all things aren’t perfect, my heart, you’re still worth it
I went through “seas of love”, “day by day”
I knew my days would never be the same

Whatever I do, try to understand me
It’s all true and all for you

Let me do what I have to do, to prove my love for you, the truth
Read my heart, mind and soul
Only then you’ll be free from it all
To my love, one and only
You’ll no longer be lonely
‘Cause that’s when you’ll have me
Forever and for eternity

Mey Yen G. (lyrics)

Summary of story/drama portrayed in the lyrics:

Starring Brian’s girlfriend, Tablo, and Brian himself

– Tablo is Brian’s friend who’s holding a serious grudge against him and hates him deeply (due to some typical family conflicts their parents had in the past). Brian knows nothing about the conflict. Tablo’s trying to ruin Brian with a plan–by blackmailing his girlfriend, basically he blackmailed her about something that could ruin Brian’s life, so she had no choice but to agree because she loves Brian and this is the only way to protect him.

– Brian was deceived by her lies by what he witnessed (referring to the night he bumped into her and Tablo at Tablo’s place, which was planned anyway)

– Since Brian didn’t know anything, he thought that she had left him for real–even worse, with his friend. He was suffering and feeling broken from that “betrayal.”

– That very same night, she found out that Tablo had done something to Brian’s car. She tried to escape, and Tablo stopped her a little too late. He took a gun and shot her from a distance. She got hurt in the shoulders, but all she could think about at that moment was nothing but Brian.

– She made it all the way to Brian’s place. Unfortunately, it was too late. He was already in the car speeding off into the night, obviously drunk and eventually ran into a landslide by the road.

– She tried to save him with all her might even though she was in pain. A few seconds before that, he was still a little conscious and eventually saw her. But he was too weak to move. He could only shout at her to leave. All he knew was that she had to go; she can’t stay. His throat felt numb then.

– Somehow a sudden feeling came and he COULD breathe. When he woke up, she was gone. He had lived. Because she had saved him in the end, he survived. He’s still living for her. She was the one who had tried to save his life till her last breath. He was the one who had tried to erase his love–the silly way.

– Love can never go wrong; it just goes nuts, especially when you love that person so much that you lose your sense of rationality just to protect him/her.

– However, Tablo’s hatred towards Brian was wrong and insane. Anyhow, Brian couldn’t go on even if he wanted to. He still missed her and to think that Tablo was the one who had caused all this to happen, he couldn’t get over it and eventually had to seek revenge.

– So, it was a tragic ending for everyone. Brian killed Tablo and then himself.

I Loved My Friend’s Girl (English Version)

Title: He Loved My Woman To Ruin Me

(from Brian’s point-of-view)

BRIAN:
I can’t stop thinking about you, girl
ua~ a~ ua~ a~ yeah

Stop confusing my heart, you’re too complicated for me.
Like a maze without a way out, you and I forever, baby,
Will you forgive me for being silly, for ruining everything, girl?
It’s already too late for us,
Seems like it’s too late to rewind.
ua~ ua~ ua~ a~
Your scent, your presence, it doesn’t make sense.
Can’t forget your warmth that revolves around me.
If you’re my baby, want you baby.

a a a a a a a a~
ua~ a~ ua~ (Every day, she’s on my mind.)
na na na na na a a a~
ua~ a~ ua~ yeah

TABLO:
Your time is running out, dude. She’s in my hands. Without a doubt, I hate you, man.
(no~ no~ no~ oh~)
I can’t stop lovin’ your girlfriend.
Feeling her pure innocence, she can’t escape. Stop it. Stop!
That’s it. You’ve got to pay with her. Stop it. (Don’t mess with her.)
Just stop. Look at her. She’s suffering each second.
No more love, she’s dying (can’t breathe).

BRIAN:
So, did you know the night you spent with him, my heart was ripping apart?
I can’t understand you. We belong together, baby.
I drove myself into the night on the empty street, wondering what have I done wrong.
Just why did I believe in you,
When you’ve stepped over my heart like this?
ua~ ua~ ua~ a~
Why do I still miss your warmth when you’re already gone?
Please just leave me completely.
If you’re my baby, want you baby.

a a a a a a a a~
ua~ a~ ua~ (Every day, she’s on my mind.)
na na na na na a a a~
ua~ a~ ua~ yeah

BRIAN:
Was it you? I felt your hands grabbing mine. I felt the same familiar warmness again.

TABLO:
His heart is dying just like I wished. Now, go and disappear from my sight. (I can’t grow up.)

BRIAN:
I’m not giving up this easily. You’ll soon have to get out. (This is so wrong.)

TABLO:
Suffocating, I heard you. Don’t struggle and just leave for good.

BRIAN:
Your tears that poison my heart, so innocent yet they kill me slowly.

TABLO:
His heart is dying just like I wished. Now, go and disappear from my sight. (I can’t grow up.)

BRIAN:
I’m not giving up this easily. You’ll soon have to get out. (This is so wrong.)

TABLO:
Please baby, please baby, stop!

a a a a a a a a~
ua~ a~ ua~
na na na na na a a a~
ua~ a~ ua~ yeah

MITHRA JIN:
You’ve pushed me into this hole heartlessly and left.
Because I’ve fallen so deep, nothing can pull me out.
Seeing your tears once again, I’ve completely forgotten my wounded heart.
And let you cuddle in my embrace.
You were brimming with tears again. It was seconds before everything ended. I struggled to push you away.
Up till this day, you were still by my side.
Your warmth that revolves around me.

I can’t go on.
This is it, girl.
Sorry…
Oh, I love you so.

Brandon C. (short story)

Untitled

“Let’s break up,” she said while giving her ring back to me.
“Why?”
“You’re too good for me,” she responded while crying.
“You’re too good for me!” I shouted out loud.
“I’m sorry.” She turned around and ran to get out of my sight.

How could she do this to me? After two years of dating, she broke up with me without a good reason. I felt tears falling down my cheeks. I didn’t want to think about this. I wanted this to be a dream. This had to be a dream. I pinched myself and realized that it wasn’t a dream.

I turned and walked to my car with a frown on my face. I didn’t want to open my car door and get inside since it seemed as if my life was over. I needed her! I turned around and I saw no one in sight. It was too late to run back to her. I opened my hand and I saw the ring that I had bought for her. I still had the ring that she had given me on my finger. I put the ring that she had given back to me in my pocket to stop the memories. Then I began to think: Why didn’t I follow her after she had run off? Why didn’t I ask why I was too good for her? Why?

I needed to erase her from my heart before I started regretting more and more, but how could I erase her? She was still a part of my life. If I erased her completely, I wouldn’t have a heart anymore. I grabbed my phone out of my pocket and I flipped it open. I saw the picture of me and her that we had taken on our 2nd anniversary. How could I erase her? I went to the contact list and I saw her number. I needed to erase her number, but I couldn’t. How could I erase her out of my life?

I put my phone back into my pocket and opened the door of my car. I put my car key inside the slot and turned it and I could hear the sound of the car starting up. The smell of my car was the perfume that she had sprayed yesterday. It brought back more memories of her. I needed to stop thinking about her! I wrapped my head with my arms and tears started to drip down my cheeks. I needed to erase her now before regretting anymore. I put my hands on the steering wheel and put my feet on the pedal and started to drive.

I didn’t know where I was going, but I didn’t care as long as the place I was going didn’t remind me of her. I stopped my car and my car was outside a club. I wiped my tears and got out of my car and I entered the club. As soon as I entered, a girl was looking at me and when I looked at her, she smiled at me. I took the ring off my finger and dropped it and it fell down to the ground. I took the other ring that was inside my pocket and did the same thing.

This was my chance to erase.
