my heels quickly tap against the floor, the color of a lilac

I’d like to look my best if death will allow.

I pluck it, my fingers deft.
I walk in on my tiptoes

I must run before in two I am cleft.
Time for my next target.

As you butterfly kisses across my neck.
You stop and sit back, precautious
Our eyes lock on each other
And begin to wage a war of emerald and ice
For fear that if we did
All of the stars in the galaxias skies would collide with one another
Causing mass destruction of a category all its own.
You slide off the bed
Towards your coat that lies dead on the carpet floor.
A blue box materializes, from the left front pocket, in your hand
And you get on one knee.
“I am not perfect.
Hell… I am not even mediocre
But for you, I would do anything.
No galaxy in the universe could gift me with enough stars
To ever change my mind about you,
And the best part is that we are both human
And we are here
In the same place
Under the same roof
In the same room.
Give me the gift of keeping you next to me through the blood chilling nights of winter
To dragging you out of the skin-blistering sunlight of summer
And calling you mine

Heavy on the cotton hems
To block out the winter cold
Drags deep their soft touch
Deep into the stems
Of all the comforts of old
She curls her fingers overtop
Slow moving fields of white
Blue the indentation draws
Yet no more do I feel its shadow
Close to mine she melts slight
Her stresses left like dewdrops
I hold her in a trance of ease
So right her press beside me
That I wish this night never end
To stay here with easy lungs
That never darken black to speak
Nor take the worry to spend
A crown of furrowed fabric don
Their curves to hide my love for morning
When I have dreamt of proper words
Can I reach over beneath her head
And kissing whisper deepest greetings
That transient sun cannot keep unsaid
Her touch is faint upon my flank
But fire burns this chill
Out of a feeling to keep her safe
Her smile is the distant seat
I would take the whole world's ills
To have remain to blaze my way
I crash those glass knives with her name

Plasters On HeartsWhen I meet a personPlasters On Hearts17 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
I tend to fall a little bit in love with them
It's just a tiny little itch at the back of my heart
That makes it smile that goofy smile
And sing and dance all around
I try to get their attention
And sacrifice most of my time to finding out more about them
It's all skippy and innocent and pink
The redness in my cheeks sometimes gives it away
And I somehow feel happy and complete just to know them
Just to know about their existence on this planet
But then as days turn into weeks I tend to stray away from that itch
So it won't get awkward
I don't want for the conversations to get awkward
Even if it disappoints and saddens my heart.
I start to chew on my lip and bite back my tongue
I spend less time with them
I seclude myself away for a while
And maybe even distract myself with sleep
I know that I can only return if my heart is in the right place again
And that place is locked far away so even I wo

I want to know the colour of your eyes.
Would it be deep and vast?
Would it be dark or light?
Will we know if we'd go by,
that one day simple you and I
become yours and mine?
Will you smile when you see me
gazing strong and reddish cheeks.
Will you shiver if i touch those lips?
Will you fist my hair as we kiss?
I want to know if you'll hold me gently
or press me hard?
If we'll take it slowly or take it fast?
But the most of all I want to know
if you'll want me the way i want you now.

Ya no es lo mismo que antes, no nos vemos…

To express what is to come
To what we are feeling
To how I, feel about you
There are three words we use often
But it seems mediocre, so we say it a lot to make up for that
Yet, is there an image to replace those words
Something, far different
Like if a black hole were to kill us now
You'd be the first thing I'd think of
We'd be pulled into another universe

This rain cools me down and it makes me alive
My heart is too warm and attached
I tear away from the past.
The petals of pink have all faded away
And the leaves have now fallen for fate

This earth keeps turning
But my heart's still in full bloom
Seasons change and everyone's leaving so soon

My soul can change again
I need to wear a jacket instead
This spring fever hasn't left my head
Every time I go out and try to say, "goodbye"

Waiting for the right time
To wish for the affection she yearns;
The intimacy she craves.
But little does she know
She’s pouring kerosene in her brain
Waiting for the fire.
Don’t give her a lighter.
Crushed by desire.
It’ll drive her insane.
This trivial woe
Feels like a tidal wave.
How it starts in your lungs and burns.
Now her heart is lined with grime.
Cleaning it is just a chore.

Because of you once more I breathe free,
you whisper the pain away

Around your neck you wear my heart's key
I need you to always stay,
hold me tight and keep me safe in the night,
when all seems lost you show me the way.
So we lie under the sacred tree
your eyes spark like stars at play,
keep me safe in the night and hold me tight,

pause - mr-erichearing my pulse through my skinpause - mr-eric5 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
my steady breath ripping apart what once was
this moment I am with my self and nothing else
day to day we struggle to live, survive really.
we fight our battles, rush to work, shovel food
nothing much changes.
we get older, we learn better how to provide
learn to not be wasteful, maybe we get ahead
look to our youth and smile feeling somehow powerful
I've touched that. Not success, but just-being 'okay'.
Felt in in my hands, and like a feather in the wind
it blew away. I've resumed my chase, for now
though amongst the battles fought
the days won, the days lost
there is always so much more never touched upon
there are still fears on the table
and the search for food, not quite conquered
wasting my brilliance in search of stasis, just out of reach
never wanting that, not wanting to be still and content
if I had it, my ill prepared mind would walk right past
still searching for more because 'what if'
so maybe I am there, truly.
what if all I needed was to

I hear my heart beat
And feel my blood pulse to my fingertips.
As long as it beats I will think of you,
And with each beat I love you more.
The more blood pulses through them,
The more eager my fingers are to write something for you,
And yet, they can't.
It feels like everything has already been said a thousand times,
Like there are no more ways to tell you I love you,
And the extent of what I feel cannot be covered by this language;
What I feel, I simply cannot express.
To say that you're funny, and that you always say the right thing at the right time
Doesn't explain how happy you make me.
To call you a goddess of beauty
Doesn't describe how beautiful you are.
To tell you I love you more than anything,
That you are the only one for me and I could never love anyone else,
And that you are everything to me
Doesn't tell you how much I love you.
I don't know what the qualities of perfection are,
Yet it's the only word I feel describes you, and not that accurately.

But I am caught,

Like a new season,

I remain trapped

Mapping FrecklesYou mapped my flesh with gentle presses of your lips; an eager cartographer surveying previously unexplored territory. You searched for my freckles and kissed each one in triumph as you have none. My favorite was the one in the middle of my right palm. I like to pretend it is a coin. I had heard as a child it was a symbol of good fortune. Your golden brown skin looks even darker, juxtaposed to mine. I’m so pale; transparent in your eyes. I always told you I liked your complexion better and you laugh, saying you’d rather be creamy like me so people wouldn’t realize your Native roots and I never understood that. I prefer the mystique of dark men every time. I haven’t wanted anyone else but you in so long, I almost don’t know how. I never liked to cuddle while sleeping but you would shift close, trying to curl around me. I was too warm but I recall your heat with fondness.

Is it me being weird?
I couldn't help but feel so light and heavy at the same time...
Like a balloon strapped to a brick
I couldn't help but think clearly and cluttered at the same time...
Like a riot with a purpose
Controlled chaos... I felt in my dim lighted heart...
Eyes lit up in your presence
Beauty sparkles in your presence
Joy begins to flow when a smile is with your presence
Just YOUR presence gives me shivers down my spine, while also somehow making it calm...
But what if your presence was captured?
Taken away and kept a secret forever?
...My hopes will dim, and my brain gets dunked in obscurity...
I may live through the darkness without it, but I may also be force to feel the cold... without your presence...

Cannot I have love, peace and serenity on my side ever?
Not lies, lust, and hurt?

because I have NO OTHER CHOICE.

The day the skies
Are brilliant blue.
Not a cloud in sight,
The birds freely flew.
Be assured that my feelings,
For you are absolutely true.
The days slowly pass by,
You haven't said "I do."
I reach out to the sky so blue,
I said ''Let us start anew."

Do you see this?
The exaggerated sway in my hips.
I’ll be the moon to your sun
In your solar eclipse.
And I’ll try and try
And fail and fail.
But my attempts at being sly
Soon grew stale
But after all this time.
I guess I’ll keep drawing
My simple black hearts.
My idle side art.
To symbolize two lovers
Who are worlds apart?
