104/1000 - Preach to MeSunday, June 5, 2011104/1000 - Preach to Me2 days ago in Free Verse
"Wake up, honey,"
I hear my mom say
As she shook my shoulders,
Throwing in her nickname
She gives me
And my dad
And her nephews.
"It's time for church!"
She was too excited
For how early it was.
I sat in my class
Full of guys my age
Bored out of their minds.
There was one
I recognized from school
Who paid more attention
Than everyone else,
But I was content
On not falling asleep.
I came up
With a long list of adjectives
To describe your hair
When I heard my name.
"How about you?"
Our minister asked.
"Are you in a relationship?"
I felt my chest swell
With pride and embarrassment
As I nodded.
"And is she a Christian?"
I had missed
Most of the lesson,
But I nodded again,
Thinking that was a good answer.
When you're of the same religion."
I thought about that
Just for a second,
Then turned away,
Returning to my adjectives
About your hair.

the rush and
kissing in the rain...

love for us is likeWindy nights, cloudy days are all part of our love we sharelove for us is like6 hours ago in Free Verse
Thunder storms, lightning streaks, I feel scared when they happen
Without you, I'm hopeless around you and trying to figure out
What makes me come to you
Is it that your face, your smiles that shine in the daylight attract me?
Or perhaps your love that makes walls around me and make me belong to you?
Maybe it's just my heart that longs for your attention!
When I'm near you I come alive
I get high
I want to be free with you tonight
Come take my hand and we shall fly in the sky, above the clouds
And then we will watch the world from down below us
Like always my hand is always holding on to yours.
Nothing MoreNothing as beautiful asNothing More3 days ago in Free Verse
Freckles smattered on cheeks
One dimple on the right side
Bright brown eyes
Nothing as endearing as
The mumbled words
The clever puns
The joyous laughs
Nothing as drawing as
Warmth in those pretty eyes
A room-brightening smile
My name on those lips
Lost In HerHer voice like a soothing angel's grace,Lost In Her20 hours ago in Free Verse
Her eyes like two beauteous, crystalline pools of opulence.
Her soul as amazing as her smile, filled to the brim with purity and grace.
She gives me the strength to push forward through the trials and tribulations in my life.
She gives me the audacity to question what I hold most dear.
She gives me the power to overcome any odds, no matter how great.
Her beauty as radiant as the sun;
She is the epitome of perfection.
She makes me realize how lucky I am to be alive.
She brings me up to the Heavens;
Up to cloud nine.
She is the girl I've waited my entire life for.
She is the reason for my existence.
She makes me relive my rebirth,
Realize my hopes, my dreams.
She makes me realize that I'm worth something,
More than I ever thought possible.
I wish only for one thing, until eternity.
I wish to be lost in her.
Lost in her eyes,
Lost in her smile,
Lost in her touch,
Lost in her everlasting perfection.
If I Told You I Love YouIf I told you I love youIf I Told You I Love You2 days ago in Free Verse
Would you run and hide?
Would you vow to never leave my side?
If I broke out in passion setting words free
Would you pretend not to hear me?
Change the subject or say it back clearly?
If I sobbed silently needing you dearly
Would your heart ache to just be near me?
Or would you feel strange hearing my plea?
I could tell you I love you in so many ways
but even then love isn’t a promise you'll stay
No matter how tempting those words are to say
If you feel the same as I do for you
We'll have forever to put those words to use

105/1000 - Slipping HappinessSaturday, June 11, 2011105/1000 - Slipping Happiness21 hours ago in Free Verse
I got my driver's license
And I decided
To gather the courage
To drive to your house.
As I stood on your porch,
I took in a breath,
Burst from the inside,
And it sounded
Like an angry female voice.
Surely that couldn't be yours,
I thought to myself
As I stood there,
Growing more nervous
By the second.
Moments turned to minutes,
And as I thought
Of turning around,
Heading home defeated,
The yelling stopped,
And the door opened.
And my heart dropped.
You were crying,
And you held onto the door,
Not giving me permission
To see inside your house.
When I was able to move again,
Taking a step closer
And reaching out my hand to you.
Biting your lip
And turning your head away.
A sob shuddered your shoulders
And stole another piece
Of my already breaking heart.
I opened my mouth
But you met my eyes again,
And yours pleaded with mi
