OneDon't think that it's your fault, when a blade meets my skinOne6 hours ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And don't think that you have done wrong every time I give in.
Because the truth is that you are the only reason I live
What you deserve, I wish I could give.
But never will I be a good man
I haven't been strong since this nightmare began.
Since I changed and my will was lost
I can't come back from the line that I've crossed.
But your love is the reason that I still try
To become a man that never makes you cry.
To become someone greater than I am today
A man that can wash all of your heartache away.
A girl like you doesn't deserve to feel pain
So the impossible, I must obtain.
The will and strength to stay away from the grave
And to give back ten times the love that you gave.
On my own, I could never stand
So when you see me on the ground, will you take my hand?
And pull me up and into your embrace?
I will be the man I was again, once I feel your love's grace.
Because if I'm alone, all that I can do is run
But I can be strong
Thoughts 2.0I will do whatever it takes. I believe in me. I love her. I will do whatever it takes to overcome this doubt. I am stronger than the doubt. My love is stronger than this doubt. Doubt is strong but hope and love is stronger. I can't doubt myself. Desmira Willows, you are the most amazing person in the world and I am so happy that I get to call you my girlfriend.

Eyes on YouI had my eyes on herEyes on You1 day ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
I thought I was in love
Of course I had a lot to learn
She was a dove
Wonderful is all I can say
But she flew away
My vision was obscured
My eyes thought they saw gold
Everything visible and invisible was completely blurred
My mind never listened to what it was told
You brushed the hair out of my eyes, I saw clear
I KNEW that love was near
My eyes were always dry
I was never overcome with emotion
I just let everything out with an angry sigh
Or kept inside my feelings as if to drown them in an ocean
The ocean finally released, these tears came streaming
But you always cheer me up, as if I've been dreaming
It was like a fantasy
It fills my heart to know it's true
You had your eyes on me
That's something I never knew
Why wasn't I able to see?
I had my eyes on you.

Seus dedos vão rápidos sobre a guitarra:
Feliz guitarrista, da música escravo,
Que em versos histórias sublimes nos narra.
Um dia, na tarde de Sol flamejante,
Com olhos fechados e o tronco desnudo,
Extático estava, tocava mil notas,
Dos tons mais sonoros até o mais agudo.
E a sua guitarra gritava e gemia,
Um som tremulante que nunca houve igual:
A voz parecia a das forças primais
Que encontram-se dentro do que é natural.
Talvez parecesse também com os mundos
De Deus quando o Verbo primeiro lançou;
Co'as harpas do Céu, com os bumbos do Inferno...
De tudo o que existe a guitarra cantou!
E o homem seguia com mais e mais força...
Nem homem mais era, não era mais nada
Que não a fusão com o seu instrumento,
E a música deles surgida assim brada:
"Nós somos a luz resultante das eras
E somos a ilha no mar dos teus medos;
Viemos há muito e perenes n

Solo sé que entregaste amor un día;

With folded wings, she sat by me
As I was lost in memory
Something akin to tragedy;
It's called a "broken heart"
She warmed me with an Angel's breath
My injury was not my death
Reminded me I'd much life left
And never would we part
She said to me, "I'll be your wings"
Among so many other things
The honeyed notes my Angel sings
That filter from above
Build not your troubles; save your sighs
For awe-filled looks at bright blue skies
That fleeting blush; those honest eyes
I fall and fall in love

To let my guard down,

Because I'm in love with you

He sings like no ones around and just maybe he imagines that he's singing to you..
I want you to feel the mumbling in his voice when he talks in his sleep.
I want you to see the way he gets up in the morning , not so carefully and all at once.
Oh how he misses you , I see it in the way he inhales and exhales your name...
not so carefully and all at once.
In the way he blinks
I know he's thinking about you.
Especially when he speaks , in the pattern of his speech is etched your name.
I know your hearts must beat so in sync.
It's hurts mine to know you aren't near each other's skin , but this is only the beginning.
No where near an end.
It' may have happened not so carefully but you fell in love all at once.

As generic as any other,
There was this boy
With boy hair

And a bright, white smile
In bright, white undies
And a indescribable jacket
With an indescribable scent
Who gave me indescribable feelings
A heart beating fast,
A face glowing red,
Like my favorite generic pop song
Stuck on repeat
I know you understand the feeling
We all feel
Hold on tight,

Lover's LullabyLover's Lullaby18 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Of a lover's lullaby
-It sends shivers down the spine-
as he leans in close to kiss her,
he jests, in his haste, nerves about the place
And instead tucks her hair, behind her ear, there,
and through the snicket, where they stand, he grabs a-hold her hand
In an act, in a picket, as he just decides to kick it
and let the lady of his dreams walk away.

Remember MeA comprehended hand shake for one,Remember Me5 hours ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Is to bother, the touch
So be gone for once
And never be flushed that way again
And realize when you're standing here,
That it's not sane
So wherever you go, and the fear
Is the untamed reality
And when we walk the road,
A squeak, a noise
Breaking my bones,
So here we all agree
And for one to hurt,
One to love again
And for one to hurt,
And for one to beg
At the end we're all alike
We come and die
We live and cry
But we don't all satisfy
The kiss of bruises,
And the kiss of cold
The kiss of sincerity,
And the kissing bold
All come back at once,
At the end of the world

But slowly as the days went on
I liked you more and more
I wonder if me hating you was my brain
Telling me it'd never work anyways
That it was pointless...
But my stuborn brain and heart
Always seem to be in constent war
My brain saying you'll never have a chance with her
My heart say you just need to try harder
But only you know which is right
Whether I'm wasting my time
Or if I just might win
But hears the thing
I can only write about the past
I can't write what's to come
I don't hold the cards
They're all in your hands
So if you don't mind
I like happy endings
Spring LoveSpring has come at lastSpring Love8 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
To vanquish the dread of winter
Returning to us the plethora
Of animal and vegetative life
The trees are budding
And the grass has begun to turn
And to top it all
Love is in the air
Everywhere I look
Love is there
Couples are everywhere
Sitting quietly beside each other in the park
Strolling down the street, hand locked tightly together
Biking in pairs across town, laughing merrily,
No matter where I go
They are inescapable
Along with the seasonal change
A new energy has enveloped the people
An energy for love and passion
As glorious as this may seem, it saddens me
To think that, this, could be us...
We could be joining in the excitement
Partaking in the renewed energy
And enjoying the love
If only I had told you how I felt
Then maybe we too
Could be happy and in love

I Saw A Man CryToday, I saw a man cry.I Saw A Man Cry5 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Not out of pain or joy-
But because of fear.
He had always held me so near.
But when we drifted away,
Fate decided we wouldn't stay.
However, in the end,
He came running back to the home,
I had set up within my heart.
Despite the aching,
The claws of grief raking,
I set up that one spot,
Where, somehow, I was mistaking,
My decision to be the right thing.
When he came to my house,
In his red truck- the one I always sat in-
I figured this would be more than,
Just be returning the things I'd borrowed.
Of course, there he was,
With crimson flowers,
In the grip of his hand.
Hugging me in a tight embrace,
Keeping his calm, dignity, and grace,
He asked me if I would accept him once more.
His chocolate-brown eyes were shadowed with,
The most pain I had seen ever arise,
Within the beauty of his iris.
I thought for a moment,
Unsure of myself,
For, I, too, had suffered.
But I had let him go once,
And he returned to me,
Therefore it is meant to be.

I could only stare,
At that gentle glow that surrounded you.
My frozen heart quivered but I held it still,
A sad smile on my lips.
Yet things did not go as I planned,
I could not help but feel attracted to you,
This heart beat faster and faster still,
Until it escaped its frozen cage.
Now, look at where we stand on this path,
You at my side,
And I on yours,
What else can I say, but that this was fate,
And that I love you,
I really do.
I love how you can laugh at,
The randomest of things.
I love that gentle smile of yours,
That warms me to the bone.
I love how you can cheer me up,
Even in my depression.
And I love you even as we venture across these bumpy roads,
And I love you even when you cry.
Sometimes I can do nothing but hold you,
But I still want you to know:
I love you.
I love you.
I love you.
