i used to love you just like a horoscope, but
telescopes make it so we don't see what's in
front of us, that's probably where
we went wrong
slowly we learn to fall out of love,
let's weave a basket of what-if's for shot-down stars and wishes
some movies aren't meant to have happy endings,
don't twist our storylines together-
we were meant to be behind the scenes
we were trapped/wrapped up in stage curtains of
red velvet lips and each other's arms for the longest time,
time will never let us know if
this is what love is like

Not a hug
She watched idly by as all
Her friends got boyfriends and
Their first kiss...
They told her after a breakup that
Romance is not worth
But she didn't believe them.
After all, as soon as they told her
That, they were off again kissing
She wanted romance,
So she sought it out.
And she's still searching.

you brought a new day with you -
you weathered the cold with me and slowly,
the sun has risen on my frail body, shining light across milky skin

On that fateful crisp night;

I was never one to be good at lying.

As you entangled me more into your affection,
With lips I have yet to savor the ambrosia of.
You had known all along,

You stole my heart the day I met you.

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

and I saw the end of sweet
summer in your starlit eyes.
I saw the end of innocence;
the start of adolescent love
and for a split second, I thought, I'm not ready for this;
this shattering-glass goodbye,
this thunderstorm looming on
the horizon of my seventeenth lie, a special moment
in my young adult life.
You were so fast, insane;
you moved through the crowd,
made your stage presence known in a second.
And I was jealous..
boy, I was sitting
in the audience, wishing I could
be just as brave;
a shadow of your tragic angel-self.
Poster image; city golden child,
you were a controversial dream
in the middle of a dead-end night,
an excuse to make romantic graffiti.
I spray painted your name all over
the wall of my old high school;
a poetic crime, and then hated myself
later for being so pathetic,
craving something I was
too afraid to touch like
a volcanic flower; Hawaiian myth.
Oh and you gave me hope
on the ride

Just trying to avoid the struggle of seeing a balance of cero,
Standing tall against every odd, just to become thy hero,
Because our love is one destined by Cupid’s arrow!
I tire of sitting here,
Always feeling the slightest fear,
That we’ll end up in tears,
And stop calling each other dear.
I want us to last forever,
To be eternal, like the weather,
To float endlessly in the sky like a feather,
And to become eternalized like pristine leather.
Today I mark the spot,
Where we give each other our hearts without a single thought,
Because today we bring everything we bought,
And go seeking a love that is worth to be sought!

Look like the day.

No one but her,
All of the extra faces,
Become a blur.
She is my gold mine,
The jewel I am after,
I want to lift her above them all,
Let her shine from the rafters.
In a world of seven billion people,
She is a bar of gold,
One that I wish to cherish forever,
To love and hold.
She is unique,
I love her,
No one else matters,
None are above her.

They keep telling me that you're not the one,
Baby, that your just a phase.
That one day I'll want a big, strong man,
To wrap me up at night, and keep me warm,
But I know that we are different.
I want your hair curled around my fingers,
And your small, thin frame tucked in my arms,
As each morning the sun rises from behind our curtains.
I want to be there when you make your coffee,
Over sized t-shirt draping down your body,
Bare feet on the wooden floor.
Can you sing for me, my sweet love,
When we finally are able to live in peace?
I dream of the days where no one speaks ill,
Of our strange love, a sex the same,
And when we can wear a pair of rings,
Like she and he are.
We can't be a phase if it feels this real,
If I want this to last forever.
It can't be what they think it is,
Because I know how I feel,
And I only dream that you feel the same.
Because a love like ours, my sweet girl,
Cannot be a phase.

Just to hear those words from your mouth,
I could pretend that those words were all I needed.
Just for this glimmer of a moment,
You’d let me into the fields of your heart,
Where all your fallen stars had crashed in the night,
You’d tell me that you loved me,
Then one by one I’d get your stars,
Throw them back into the sky.
Once, all I wanted,
Was to be the one to show you love,
To bathe you in it so all your broken bones,
Would fade with the morning light.
Once I didn’t care how much I destroyed myself,
If it meant spending one more minute in your arms.
Once I pretended that I could weather everything,
That I could take you in my arms,
And ride out the storm,
Cuz we were unbreakable.
Once your voice was all it took,
To make me smile.
Once I would have given you the world,
Just to hear you say that you loved me.
How can I tell you?
How can I make you understand?
The absolute agony I feel

Wondering what he thinks.
Starring endlessly in to his savory eyes
she's thinking, he moves his eyes to meet her gaze.
Round the corner he spins and spins,
In his rolling chair he likes to twinge.
In her eyes she sees,
His wayward movement,
Making her thoughts go blank.
Only seeing him,
Maybe if it were real
She'd be happier,
She thought to herself.
Crushes are crushes
buried underneath mounds of lushes
Lust is one thing, love is another
She has to wonder
What could it be.
Her heart pumps faster
Instead of just louder.
