moonlight sonatas light the room but

love in the form of coffee caffeine and
you hate the taste

To the day.
You handed me a red rose
With a note that said
"I am in love with you,
Please be mine."
At the time
I thought it was special.
I thought it was real.
So when the day
Came once again
I wanted to return the favor.
I waited for you
At the place where we first met
Holding a flower.
So when I saw you
And waved you over,
I was confused
By the guilty look in your eyes.
Then I saw it.
I saw the lipstick on your neck,
Your rustled hair,
And the hand you were holding.
I would have forgiven you,
Forgiven your mistake,
If I hadn't seen what she held in her hand.
And a note that read:
"I am in love with you,
Please be mine."

Their love in their arms
I know I'm blessed to have you.
I'm sorry when I act bad
I'm sorry when I'm not good enough.
But hey, you say we always make mistakes
And wash it away like I do everyday.
You don't focus on my looks
You accept me for who I am.
Nothing more I could appreciate about you
But of course, you're still beautiful, my dear
Inside and out
And I'll never let you go
As long as I live on this Earth.
I love you, my dear
I really really do.
Happy Valentine's Day.

I'm a kind captain's daughter,
born under Canadian silver clouds.
I was meant for life at sea,
spotting islands from daddy's telescope
as he steered the wheel;
later, we'd be in the mess hall, eating
crab cakes and playing board games.
Yet one night, the good
captain steered the ship the wrong way,
got distracted by a siren,
popping out from under waves and
climbing atop a wall of seashells.
She had waist-length carnelian hair
and her voice was unlike anything
I had ever heard, impossible
to describe; a Greek lilt, an enticing
of chimes and Indian coins clacking
against the Taj Mahal palace floors.
That's how she manipulated him,
stole his heart and splintered it
with sharp Atlantis sea-glass.

They were waiting for you.
They said you were worth something when everyone else didn't.
They held you, kissed you, healed you in body and mind.
It was all so foreign to you to actually have someone who wanted to be with you.
You were used to being alone and isolated from others content in your own world.
One that was safe from ridicule and harassment.
You felt safe and secure there by yourself.
That was until they came into your life almost like it was meant to happen.
They showed you that they would keep you safe and sound from the ridicule.
Helping you through the issues that were pounded into your head since you were young.
They helped you see those 'issues' were really something else to them.

Where you pine for someone
Your heart explodes and reincarnates
In a way so painful yet beautiful
You want to sing horribly off-key for them
Write poetry that would make an fourth grader cry
Say lines that would make milk curdle from being so cheesy
You have journals with little snippets of who they are
With the word "HOW" circled repeatedly
As you try to figure out just what you're supposed to do
And dream sweetly about them during the day
And have nightmares about them when you go to sleep
As you think of every way they could turn you down at once
But that's not true love
Because your love is a person
And they love someone else
Where they pine for someone else
Painfully and beautifully
Who they want to be Romeo or Juliet for
They have their notebooks wondering how and if
And odds are, it's not you
But no one ever falls in love once
They bend and fold
Moving on with old hopes crushed
And new ones crushing
In this statistical nightmare of relationships

to be chained to the past?
To be so stuck on something
that just never would last?
Is it wrong
that I wish for a day
that I can laugh with him again
with his milky brown gaze?
Is it sin
to miss the treasonous lips
of he who'd "never hurt me"
in a cold hearted twist?
Is it sick
to remember the wistful stare
of someone who never
was actually there?
Is it malice
to think of the warm embrace
of someone who left
without a trace?
Is it evil
to yearn for a warms summer's night
when I'd have not a worry
but being cuddled too tight?
Is it vile
to lust over someone
who has been with my friend
even though that's all done?
Is it criminal
to miss hearing the laugh of someone
who smiled so bright
that I was blinded by the sun?
Is it foul
to want a hug or a kiss
from one who never loved me
but I so dearly miss?
Am I filth
to want to be with someone though
she only had left me
in a matter of weeks ago?
Oh why, oh why,
can I throw away the past
if I know in my heart
my love can never last?

¿oh que realmente buscabas en mi?
A veces te siento tan cerca de mi lecho

Se que me escuchas, pero no me oyes.
Te acercas a mi mas no me tocas, no puedo verte
Se que me observas Angel de la muerte,
al acecho de mi alma estas.
El viento frio de este invierno me susurra al oido
una triste melodia rodeada de muerte, que se aproxima en la alejania,
Hoy solo se, que si se puede morir de amor.
Jinete tenebroso ven por mi, apresura tus pasos,
termina ya con este sufrir en mi.
Escucho tus pisadas como ecos cabalgando entre las sombras, lento te aproximas.

Crash onto the jagged precipice
That I call my consciousness;
Only, unlike the real ocean,
There is no soothing rhythm
In the sound.

You’re my crumbling refuge,
my red-herring ruse,
my heartbreak muse.
And there’s nothing about it,

time and time again
there you are, coming out
of my ballpoint pen.
You spill unto the pages,
breaking free of your cages,
and a war of will wages.
Cuz I am tired
of writing about you.
But your memories force me to.
They bleed into my brain,
and course through my veins,
pressing in on my chest,
giving me not a moments rest.
Cuz you went
from being the one thing
I could always clutch,
to a silhouetted ghost,
of which I cannot touch.
Can’t you just leave the lonely, alone,
and let my heart out of the combat zone?
Tell me, why is it you’re still here,
you’ve been out of sight
for almost a year.
Tell me, why is it
you still live inside me?
Why won’t you just
let me be free?
God, I beg you
just let the constant flow
of memories cease.
Let me finally be able to grieve,
and find some semblance of peace.
Shooting StarsI’ve wished upon them since I was a kid,Shooting Stars1 month ago in Free Verse More Like This
Not one has come true,
Why would I expect them to?
Money and games,
Used to be what I wished for,
I was a kid,
That’s what was at my core.
Then one day it all changed,
When I felt love’s power of change,
At first it was odd,
Uncomfortable and strange.
It took me a while,
But I figured it out,
And I still back my theory,
Without a doubt.
All the stars I’d ever wished upon,
Turned into one,
An enormous ball of light,
As big as the sun.
It fell to the earth,
Into a Texas hospital,
And gave birth to an angel,
Nothing is impossible.
When she stepped outside,
The whole hemisphere would shine,
She was the prettiest girl I’d ever seen,
The finest of the fine.
She radiated beauty,
Her hair was gold,
I wished I had the courage,
I wished I was bold.
That’s when my wishes changed,
The day I saw her,
I wanted something different,
Her light cleared the blur.

There for a moment
Gone in an instant
I could never own it
Devotions are apparent
I see straight through-
Her love is transparent
She possesses my heart
My mind fills with vivid visions
The sorrows tear me apart
Eating me from within
Her voice is a gentle breeze
Her presence is intangible
But always keeps me at ease
She's dragging me towards death
Because every ache threatens afterlife
Constantly having to gasp for breathe
Stabbing lungs like a knife
Her image haunts my mind
Caught in a spiderweb glance
Sending quivers down my spine
Arctic touch leaves me yearning
I must be howling at the moon
This aching feeling's burning
The silence starts too soon
Silence is our constant exchange
I'm wondering who's the ghost
I guess this love is strange
I fear for my own soul
I must be a complete fool
For in my heart's a hole
Filled up by this ghoul

But how is that love?
Do they believe what they say?
Are they suppressing the knowledge

Maybe it's subconscious
or maybe they know.
Maybe it's a game

But those are just theories,
because how could I know.
I've never been in love
I've just let my feelings go.
But one day they'll wake up
hand in hand, the same bed
they'll look eye to eye

They'll forget it isn't real
All those empty I love you's

But they'll still think them truths
I thought that was love,
