theres a certain softness
that hides in the way we clash;
a fragile savagery that
shakes the world,
you are electric,
creating shivers down my live-wire spine,
sparking lights behind my hooded eyes.
the quiet rumble of your velvet voice,
lips moving against my ear.
no warning: lighting lips flash,
burning vivid purple imprints,
muffled thunder breaking
against your neck,
grey clouds falling from
half parted lips,
raindrop fingertips trace
with a horrible delicacy along
sweat drenched skin
you break me apart again

Cracks in their souls of glass,
Some find it harder to grasp,
Some find it difficult to let the feeling pass.
Just like all of us,
I don’t know if you do the same,
But I do it all the time,
I wish I was someone else,
Just so that I could make a rhyme.
But you are awesome,
Exactly how you are,
Your light shines bright,
Like a billion stars.
I love you,
I ache to hold you,
I desire to be with you,
I want my heart to have a home with you.
You’re perfectly imperfect,
Awe-inspiring beauty in motion,
Just the way you are,
Your flaws make you better,
You hold my attention,
We’d be perfectly flawed together,

you would have never seen me again.
But you said,
exactly what i needed you to say.
You called me gay,
not in an offensive way,
you called me a guy,
and you said it with complete sincerity.
If that hadn't happened,
I wouldn't have seen you the next week,
and when we hugged goodbye,
I couldn't bring myself to let go,
but neither could you.

Como un simple "te quiero" te puede elevar hasta la nube mas alta, y también
puede hundirte en la mas profunda desconfianza e incertidumbre.
Como la simple rareza en el tono de voz, pude llenarte la cabeza de malos pensamientos,
contraerse el pecho hasta dejarte sin aire...
es increíble, que apesar de tu frialdad, ironía y pesades, pueda verte igual que la primera ves...
dudoso, tímido y asustado.
aun intento comprender, como es posible quererte tanto, a tal punto que con solo hablarme
puedes provocarme el aturdimiento del primer beso.
como tu sola sonrisa me llena el corazón de alegría..... tus manos me llenan de calor,
tus besos me provocan aturdimiento...y tu mirada.... tu mirada de niño confundido
me llena de deseo.
es un misterio, que jamas comprenderemos.... que un hola sea deferente de otro hola.... que un silencio es diferente a otro silencio...

Knight's Heart TaleLong ago, when a knight was but a ladKnight's Heart Tale3 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
His eyes beheld a sight never had
A woman with beauty to match the stars
With a gaze that held him for many hours
He knew right then, he’d fallen in love with the maiden before him
Ever since then, his days were brighter, nights were less dim
A vow he’d made to stand by her side, to be a friend and a guide
And nobody but he himself knew that he’d lied
“Oh, you’re a witch and I’ve fallen under your spell
A thief in the night, taking my breath as well
Is there no end of this consuming madness?
For thou art still growing with loveliness”
Long ago, a knight stood by the maiden that he loved
Not a word, not a hint his own feelings, he shoved
He longed to speak to her and give her an embrace
But he was too paralyzed by beauty and by grace
She held a love for another man though he gave her naught what she was due
Her friend, the knight, came to comfort her; he embraced her, gave her a look, then she knew

A melody to soothe my wounded heart.
A sense of touch to love.
So many great adventures.
(Just me and you)....
A tale of a romantic and mystical future.
(Just you and me)....
It makes me think of you.
Distance or not...
It really is a bless to have you with me.
Real or not....
I know it may sound crazy.
But my soul is drawn to you.
Gravitationally in a sense that not one can define...
I know it may be a short time.
Since we've met.
But my heart reaches towards your heart.
Regardless of distance....
My heart will be empty...
My soul will ache for eternity...

It has lots of meanings...
It is ambiguous and untouchable, yet, sometimes can be powerful.
SO powerful that you will not behave the same in front of that particular person while that person is really not much different from others
My heart softens when it comes to relationship, especially when my acts starts to be noted.
These acts became sweet interactions and slowly, parts of me begin to fill up another heart..
while these acts were initially based off a friendly intention.
We knew it wouldn't work out in the end but hey, Love is a funny thing.
Anyways, I just want to say,
I would be happy to and love to make you happy!
since.. I do have some kind of unexplainable feelings..
Plus What your asking for is what I can do for you.
so I guess...
YEA, lets enjoy our short but meaningful time together, shall we?
Only LoveHow can I describe the way I feel towards you? Like finishing a good book? The feeling of the sun slowly caressing my skin? Or maybe even the feeling you get when everything turns out well in a series. But it is not like any of those. You are not a book but, you say you are an open book. You are not the sun but, you light up my life. You are not something I can watch when I want, even though I want to see you all the time. The truth is I can't name this feeling. Some may call it love but, what is love? A strong feeling. No, it is not love, it is something more. If you gave me a pen and paper, then asked me to write everything I like about you, I would fill the page. Ask me to write down all the things I don't like about you, the page would stay empty. You are perfect in every definition and the way you make me feel is indescribable, and that is all it ever will be. No words to describe.

RegretsHow boringRegrets6 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
how boring is life without regrets
like an empty vessel
a silent note, voiceless bird
Endearing is the sweet sorrow
and the pale violet sky
laying under the shades of blossoms
with dreamy eyes
though there was no wind
How boring,I thought
is life without regrets
Poignancy of emotions
why should I care so much?
Do fates intertwine
just to bring nostalgic sigh?
How often I convince myself
Yet I feel so weary
as the fallen petal
drift about in the late evening wind

Not a Blueberry or a Raspberry.
It is a strawberry
endearing it is
that makes my lip smile
It is a specialty
with promised nectarous
lust like the sweetness we all love so dearly, here.
It’s romantic, if you like.
curious and unknown
cling to the corner of my heart
like a corsage of kisses
that I absolute fancy
slowly wandered at the edge of glacée
How much deep sorrow in that playful bite
the poignancy of emotions mixed
at the tip of the tongue
I cannot say the sweetness is not pleasing
yet I do admire
the scent of coffee lingering with its unique bitterness
I put all my desire in this poem, I thought of strawberry, the fresh fruity scent of it and the sweet juicy taste; I thought of the one that I once loved, his lip , his eyes, and how they can never be mine. But at the end I thought of someone special to me right now.

“il n'y a qu'un bonheur dans la vie,”
she says, and i scoff.
there’s blue welts peppering my cheek
and a thick cut on my upper lip,
bandages over my fists.
“your nose is bleeding,”
“you did that.”
my nose is still broken,
when his bumps it.
“i don’t know how,”
“we got here.”
“of course i will.”
my nose is still bent out of shape,
but when my fingers skate over the pages,
“il n'y a qu'un bonheur dans la vie,”
like they skate over twin bands,
i don’t disagree.

But I feel like when it comes to you
I could be.
I look at you
And stupid, romantic words
Come to my mind.
Like how your freckles
Remind me of the stars in the sky.
When you laugh,
It’s like sunshine
Figured out a way
To translate itself into sound.
Is like drinking tea on a cold day-
Warm and comforting and sweet.
Hearing you sing is enchanting,
And I’ve never heard my own name
Sound as special as it does
When it passes by your lips-
The lips that I can only kiss
In my best dreams.
Every night I go to bed
Praying that I’ll dream about you
Because dreams are the only place
I have any hope of being with you.
I could listen to you play music
I could laugh with you
A knife through my heart
Felt as good as the one you put there.
I’m no poet,
but I feel like when it comes to you
I could be.
PhiladelphiaI wanted her.Philadelphia4 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Her and her hair the color of carrots and fire.
Her and her references to bands that only she’s ever heard of.
Her and her tube top that she wore so often that people forgot to be scandalized.
Her and her refusal to be called anything but her full name.
All 5 syllables.
All 12 letters.
I wanted her.
I wanted her so badly that I could almost believe I loved her.
Her and her wheezy laugh.
Her and her freckle stained body.
Her and her glow in the dark eyes.
It hurt sometimes.
It hurt how much I wanted her.
And how little she wanted me back.
I’ve seen her.
I’ve spent too much time seeing only her.
I’ve seen her.
I’ve seen her soul, light as air.
I’ve seen her heart, just barely out of reach.
I’ve seen her staring at the sky, looking for a way out.
I’ve seen her glancing at me as if I mattered,
But living her life mattered so much more.
I wanted her.

in the books I read, that the kisses you receive
from the one you love always taste
When I was kissing you it wasn't sweet.
Your mouth was hot and wet and saliva dripped down the corners of our lips
I did not explore every crevice of your mouth and our tongues
didn't battle for dominance.
You overwhelmed me with your leadership and your courage
And your warmth and your scent.
I sat on your lap and clung to you and you kissed me
with such ferocity that I never got to even

No quiero tener que mirar el reloj cuando todo esto pueda haber pasado
Mirando el tiempo que tal vez me hubiese faltado
Para poder ser feliz estando a tu lado
No quisiera que pasaras de largo en mi vida como han pasado muchas veces las nubes
Quisiera que supieras que él no saber de ti en un delirio me hunde
Ya que aunque sé que nada es eterno
Contigo puedo olvidarme de ese principio tan ciego
No sé cuánto tiempo se me permita estar contigo
O un año
No sé si esto valla muy rápido o estamos tardando
Aunque no quisiera saber la respuesta
Debo ser franco
El dilema de mi vida en este momento es que me encuentro en una encrucijada
Donde tal vez deba de prepararme para ser feliz lejos de ti
O donde deba vencer mis propios miedos
Para evitar estar de ti lejos
Pero a decir verdad
Aunque se de antemano que esto así de espontaneo como empeso podria acabar
