Just Press Play

Don’t play your games on me.
I know your tricks already.
I’ve seen you playing with my own eyes.
How smoothly you deliver those lies.

Don’t call me baby, please.
I don’t want to disturb your boyfriend’s peace.
Please learn to do it correctly this time.
It’s about time you reach your prime.

Don’t ask me that stupid question.
I know you just want some empty affirmation.
How can you ask me that over and over again?
Do you know that it drives me insane?

Don’t dare me to jump in.
I don’t want to dive in to a sin.
They may push it to be just normal.
But hey, I can still control this animal.

Don’t think I am like the others.
Clearly, you got it all wrong, brother.
It may seem to you that I’m about to fall.
But let’s just see who’s got who under control.

@lance: Let's just hope and pray I can sustain that. :)

I will remain in control.
I will remain in control.
I will remain in control.

That's my mantra. ;)

Mr. Scheez said...

Wow, I'm inspired by your talent in poetry. Gusto ko tuloy gumawa na rin ng mga tula.

Pero try ko mag-start sa haiku. Gumagawa ka ba ng haiku?

joaqui_miguel said...

@mr scheez: Wow!

Go ahead, write a line or two. Then next thing you know, it will form stanzas then a complete poem.

Thanks for appreciating. :)

Yeah, I do. I just find it too short sometimes.

Looking For The Source said...

nice! galing.

nung nabasa ko ung title, naisip ko ung album ni p. diddy.

wala lang... pwede ng idagdag sa album nya, choz!

joaqui_miguel said...

@looking for the source: Oh yeah. I knew there was song or an album titled "Just Press Play" but I couldn't pin point who was the artist. Now, I got it. Thanks. :)

Looking For The Source said...

yup. i was thinking of another album.. yung sa aerosmith..

kaso yun.. just "push" play... he he,..

joaqui_miguel said...

@looking for teh source: Oh yeah, you are one music fanatic.

Hmmm... maybe if there's a song that I need to find I should just contact you. lol

Looking For The Source said...

ha ha. nagkataon lang kasi kanina, i was in this OC-OC mode na i was organizing my mp3 files (that would mean correcting the album, the artists, the album artist and the album cover - and i still have a long way to go) eh nadaanan ko ung album nung aerosmith. ha ha..

dabo said...

Yes, it seems that I am on my way to pressing stop.
