she rolls her eyes and says that i shouldn’t

pretend that i didn’t imagine the way
you twirl your pencil around your fingers as i wrote them.
i want to be able to pick out your heartbeat in a crowded

your chest that your pulse is imprinted into my eardrums.
i want to be so gone over you that i smile big enough that
everyone else around me smiles too.
for the first time in my life, i can believe that god built
eve out of one of adam’s ribs— they must have
fit together almost as perfectly as you and i do,

Have you found
another to walk with,
on your journey
of a thousand miles?
Have you found
another soul mate
one whose heart
you can’t break?
Have you found
the one you can’t
Do you ever think of me at night,
when your alone in bed?
Or have you forgotten
all the promises we said?
Do you ever replay our story
inside your head?
Or have you erased all memories,
of me instead?

Something lost that can only be experienced to be liked.
Know each lie you've ever said,
And tell them in a passion to make it true.
For this is not just madness,
A lonely thought leads a trail to that.
But a trail of the farce is where everything is right.
Every mad and sickening thought,
This is what makes love burn deeper,
A song that is sung by a romantic,
Is none other than a blinded lie.
Forget the lyrics, the tune and the beauty of the romance
It's unreal for such sweetness,
Don't love a romantic for their words,
It's only talk with no life,
Words of hypnotism that guides the world into hope,
But we forget that love isn't words.
It's not just some song,
It has no language, no sound or sight.
A romantic burns true love
Melts it down until it's unknown,
A blinded lover can write beauty on paper,
Marked in ink is a story about your looks,
Your hair, your eyes, your sweetening smile,
How everything falls into place,
How the light becomes lighter with you in m

My Costae have splintered,

My Liver has practically dissolved itself,

My Lungs (my Lights) are swollen with
carbonated aire swilling around in

stardust holds it steadfast,

The memories of you.
They make me sick,
Just like the flu.
From your brown eyes,
To your soft lips.
The way you smiled,
Made my heart skip.
I'd hold you close,
I'd hold you tight.
We'd always love each other,
Even if we'd fight.
Whenever we talk,
I have to lie.
Without the lies,
You'd see me cry.
But no more lies,
It's time to be true.
No matter what happens,
I'll always love you.

También cuenta que sueñas conmigo.
Dice la leyenda que cuando me miras,
Tu corazón se desenfrena y la pasión corre por tus venas.
Cuenta aquel viejo sabio que esto ya lo vivió antes,
Un chico perdido por unos labios,
Una joven perdida entre brazos.
La leyenda dice que me quieres con locura,
También cuenta que con sólo una palabra me embriagas.
¡Al diablo con aquellas antiguas parejas!
Su amor ya murió, el nuestro apenas florece.
Porque cariño, tú y yo seguimos la tradición.
Tú y yo seremos una nueva leyenda de amor.
Una leyenda de beso pasional.
Una de amor joven y eterno.
¿Por qué no una en la que el destino no nos quiere juntos?
Una en la que nuestros corazones se junten y formen uno.
Si, tú y yo seguiremos la tradición.
La leyenda cuenta que seremos parte de ella.

And the way you smile
When you look into my eyes
You see past the walls
And for once
I don't mind
When you hold me close
My brain ceases to function
I lose myself in your touch
With my head on your chest
I am at peace
My heart skips a beat
When our lips touch
With fingers entwined
I'm all yours
And you are mine
This love seems to cut
The cord from my brain
To my mouth
Is rendered useless
When you are around
Just thinking about you
Puts my head in the clouds
My mind doesn't work right
When you are around
My tummy does back-flips
Every time I see you
When you leave
You take a piece of me

Then reality hits me out of know where,

Trying to swallow the breath caught in my throat
Trying to stop my heart from somersaulting
Pray that it is some brilliant trick of the light
That the shadows fall perfectly on your face
And that magical twinkle in your eye
Has suddenly appeared
But hours pass
And - God damn it - you are there
I cannot live for a moment
Without your name echoing in my skull
Appearing at the end of sentences
Appearing in sheets of endless work
Appearing when I close my eyes
Where even darkness mocks me
With a vision of you
Why couldn't it have been a trick of the light?
That one glance I stole
When I felt my chest heave
And could hear music swelling in my ears
Why won't you leave me alone?
I put up a wall for a reason
Please, God, do not make me take it down
Do not make me trip and stumble in your wake
And taste sweetness as I utter your name
To no one in particular
Strip me of emotion
Please, I beg you
And turn off the lights
For I cannot bear to bare my soul

The SidelinesI just want to be beautiful, for once--The Sidelines2 weeks ago in Free Verse More Like This
Beautiful to someone who is beautiful to me.
It's selfish, I know,
But I want to be the only one he thinks about,
The way that I always thinks about him.
But mine's the typical tragedy--
How she's so much more beautiful,
And she's always on his mind.
I try to ignore it--
To shrug it off and tell myself I'll be fine.
After all, I'm not cut out for love;
Love is for the innocent,
The heroines and the braves,
Not for the villains.
Scum like me don't deserve a place
In the "happily ever after"s,
The loves at first sight,
The "just meant to be"s.
No, we are the ones that sit on the sidelines,
Working at our looms to weave wonderful tales
Of love we've never experienced
And feats we've never accomplished
While our hearts get trampled by people
Who don't even know that they hold them,
And who wouldn't want them even if they did.
I just want to be beautiful, for once--
Beautiful to someone
Who is beautiful

And you let it fall apart.
We were chasing the wind,
And I thought it was forever.
But you got tired,
And forgot about it.
So I was left running,
While you sat there.
You found another wind,
Blowing east bound.
With that pretty blonde girl from second period,
You chased almost until forever.
Until another wind came along,
And you went off with the girl from chemistry.
And I am forever running west,
Trying to make sense of it all.
You said you loved me,
So it's my fault for not realizing.

I may never know your face
But I’ll always know your heart
And it’s worth putting up with
The distance keeping us apart
I may never hear your voice
But I’ll always get to read
The words that make me happy
All the words that I need
I may never feel your touch
But I’ll always feel your love
The love I’ve always wanted
Of which I’ve always dreamt of
We may be far apart
And you’re very insecure
But I will make a promise
To always be here

piece of you. The way your lips curl in
the charming smile that haunts my
midnight thoughts; how your eyes suck out
the unconditional passion that I have
The way your arms fitting around me so
perfectly, that it felt like home to me;
the kind of home that keeps the arctic,
bitter winds that winter blow in from
it's cruel heart that never knew what
a love like this was.
A house could not at all keep out the
cold nor will it at any point make me
happy the way that can give me this
blissful smile which can last forever;
leaving traces all over my body.
Your imperfections and flaws began to
peek out of your soul; how beautiful
that sight was that left me nothing
but, wanting air to breathe in
giving my lungs to fill in all of the
empty space that flowers never grew in.
What a shame it was to not have those
flowers bloom in a place that wanted
nothing but a little bit of love to
last a million centuries.

yearns for your arms to slither on to

For a whisper to slip out of your

and meaning that could patch up any
dent or hole in a wall that was kicked
and punched around to mimic a rag
doll's experience in a short period of time.
I don't even know what it's like to feel

like I'm a shiny, brand new toy coming out

Leaving salty trails
Full of sorrow and regret

It may seem fake
But my love for you
