He tiptoed in her life like teardrops full of promise in the midst of summer.
He sneaked up on her covered by a thick mist of mystery which suited him so nicely.
But he was much more than he appeared to be, and she was about to find out.
Soon. Very soon.
Moments of bliss later she was confident. She had fallen in love.
She found herself spinning around him without an inch of suspicion.
He took his time, studying his moves carefully, playing her like a chess piece.
This game of power & control was far more exciting than what he led himself to believe.
She, she was labelled fragile & his love was overly clumsy.
And he, he was a fierce tornado no love could keep hostage.

All your edges

And the arms

No longer is there love

It’s been replaced

These fading memories,

And now send icy shivers

Cuz the firework

and is nothing

being wiped from memory.

Leaving a trail of golden breadcrumbs on the pages

Alight with curiosity, each synapse humming with activity
While you sculpt your thought with wise hands

Still granted the oasis of your company
Leaning my head on your shoulder as evening approaches
Until that day comes, feed on honey
Remember what was, and will be once more
And maybe the blossom's nectar could allow you to feel the sunlight

It gave me tips and tricks and steps
But never told me how to explain
The way your lips make me tremble
Or how to say, in poetic terms,
That I want your tongue in my mouth.
I closed the internet window and wrote everything that came to mind.
The awkward things I say without thinking.
And the fact that I do, really, love you.
I wrote it all down, start to finish.
Beginning to end.
But I guess, instead of

I should have searched
'How to send a love letter'.
Because my fingers are shaking and my breaths are shallow
And I'm convinced these words will never reach you.
