I shrug into Harry's shirt
underneath my autumn scarf--
cologne on the cuffs bringing
color as I close my eyes,
the brown of his hair,
laughter, pine green.
Fingers on marbled buttons
smooth as the cream
he puts in his chai.
I think of him like rain on a Sunday,
a slow breath uttered in calm,
eyes shut to listen,
he is peace,
stability in grayer moments.
He is the space in my empty bed
I ache for him the way
I crave prayer and
the feel of a rosary.

I can tell the emotions we feel.
When I see the cries you have
Ill hold you and release it all.
When I look into your eyes
I see someone so perfect
How much we have grown
Made me realize we are not alone.
When I look into your eyes
I see the gentleness of your embrace
How I love to be there for you
Until I finally rest.
When I look into your eyes
I see the love and care you have
It shows me I never
have to do this alone

that's the thing
all anyone ever
tells you is that
it's going to be
(you are telling me
that you are leaving.)
they don't tell
you what to do with
the pressure in
your chest on
the dark days,
or how to
uncurl your fists
from your hair
or your nails
from your skin.
(you are telling me
that you don't know if
you are coming back.)
maybe i don't want
maybe i'm tired of
only ever being
(i am building walls
again and you are prying
my fingers from my hair.)
i want more than this,
i deserve a word so full of
hope and safety that it
weighs my tongue down
give me a mouth full
of flowers and remove 'okay'
from your vocabulary.
i need more than this.

For and By Puabi
Part 1: Everyday Magic
Together is eternity
Yesterday is mist, tomorrow a shadow
Trouble disappears, joy arises
Every day she wields her magic
I desire her to stay
Part 2 Everything for You
He does it all for only one
For me, who adores him;
So I must think of what I can do
To respond to his kindness
"Everything for you!"
Part 3 A Place to Belong
More than a home
More than a house
A structure of bricks and stones
His heart is a hearth with a warm fire
A true place to belong

^That's my Forever and a Day^
A doting little exchange,
that me and my Babe say,

It might seem silly,
but it's us all the same..
Something I treasure,
and hope will never change..

Sempre que me apaixono me sinto renovado e feliz
Mas como uma droga
Depois que tudo acaba
Fico chorando , deprimido e com os destroços do meu coração
Sempre termino me sentindo pior
Quero encontrar alguém que seja especial
Mas tenho medo de sofrer mais uma vez
Tenho medo de perder mais uma pessoa
Não quero sofrer
Não me faça sofrer , não minta para mim
Não me machuque , não mais
Não vou me prender a pessoas que só me afundam
Vou ser livre e viver com que me resta
Um coração partido , uma alma triste e todos aqueles sentimentos inúteis

Two A.M sitting in my bed,
Lit by candles
And a dream
That I could finally be happy.
And were irrefutably beautiful
And I swore I was going to marry you.
I leaned in to touch your lips
In a moment of genesis
Or genocidal fantasy.
The glass shattered,
And frost gathered
In the recesses of my heart
Where you once were.
Oh, how I remember.

stillness of the day
Silence of time
floating on by
with a gentle breeze
calming the soul
through gentle movement
of ebbing waters
of rippling oceans
through changing skies
Such heart felt love
in this peaceful place
where time stands still
but the soul sings
a moment to cherish

Unexpected Love In The WinterKristoff, your tender loveUnexpected Love In The Winter18 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is so subtle at first
Never standing the sight
Of stubborn, irritating Anna
Love never crossed your mind
When you met this strange redhead
With a strand of white in her hair
She was only a nuisance
But not for long when she bought essentials
Her sense of humor suddenly rubbed off on you
Her style of fighting made you scoff
Then you laughed about it later
How silly she looked when she threw the snowball
At the large monster guarding her sister's castle
The castle which enthralled loneliness and fear
You don't want her trapped where she wasn't wanted....
What went through your mind, I wonder
When you were talking to Anna
Did you think that Anna had fallen for you
Or she already -fell- in love at first sight?
Her smiles, you never knew
Were so intoxicating and mesmerizing
Wow did your hearts reach in a short time
The hours were ticking when her energy started fading
You didn't miss a beat
You offered your hat to warm her head..~~

Hair as brown as bark and long as yard.
Skin as light from the heavens above.
Voice as fair and soft hearted as a mother is to a child.
Lips pink and luscious as I falter to touch them so.
All these qualities I love and adore you by.
But yet my love for you can never be.
Your not human but immortal.
I would wither and die and you would live forever.
I try to stop myself my love towards you.
But it never can stop.
I'm a mere mortal a swordsman lone for this world for combat.
I never seem to find peace in it all of war and bloodshed.
But alas I met you on that fateful night where our eyes met, and bodies touched.
I saved you from mere peril and you thank me with a kiss on the head.
You an elf women so gracious and kind.
Light shined down on the standing out our divine beauty.
You watched me everywhere, observing how I acted to normal things and not battle and war.
Finally you spoke to me and we laughed the night away.
Now its time for me to leave, an

Every TimeMeanwhile, just to get something off my back. I have been going through my room and have been finding poems, thoughts noted down on papers, pictures and scribbles on index cards. All written in the prime of my depression (2011, when I found this beautiful site). Reading some reminded me that although I suck at it and they turn out cheesy, I still want to write them, so here is something I wrote a few nights ago.Every Time19 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
This is because something happened between me and someone that means so much to me, someone who I got to meet so well and be part of her life in such an amazing way and to all of a sudden have it all vanish without a trace. She means the world to me.
Every time she looks at me
with that face of fear
with that face of disgust
I inhale as the pain builds up
my heart that shattered
my heart that died
I sigh it out
it’s dust caught in my throat
it’s dust making it hard to breathe
the leftover shards fall from my chest
it pierces my stomach
it pierces my lungs

I hope you are in dream
A fanciful and bright one
That matches the gleam
In your pretty eyes
As you sleep and rest
Know that I sit here and pray
That tonight will be your best
All the way until sunrise
I know that one day
When you wake up in bed
I’ll greet you with a kiss on the nose
Until then, I’ll continue to pray instead
For you, my best friend
I look forward with hope
To that blessed coming tomorrow
When I'm in your presence once more
Until then, I want you to truly know
I will love you without an end

She wanted to be my
Bitter soak of burning dry kettle love.
Cobweb hands, I was holding the fog in the creases of her elbows with the
black paint, soot, dust.
Her body was a sighing, moaning house,
Like there was God who favored an abandoned mansion in our ghosted woods,
Ribs for the old wooden frames with bird’s nests and rat poison hot traps in the corners
Her clutches, creaking door frame fingers that she’d use to tap away on scrap thread strings
Of antique instruments in an attic she blew her breath away into
Crimson beating flesh heart, for a linger of her brass hinges
Swallow up the gorging pulse of the sun to new evenings of new distance.
It hazes, it phases all amid mist folded up in layers on top of the trees to suffocate
The grime spiders which crept inside her hollow lungs to echo tapping absence.
To see the forest for the trees, was to see her for her mountain top gaze grazing along the surface
Not even to search and to be smitten for the gateway, opened up

I let you alone, I have no wings yet.
Please look at me, give me a smile,
I will remember it and never forget.
You're incredible even if you're sad,
Your pretty lips and deep green eyes,
Don't you know, you drive me mad ?
I hope someday I will see your sun rise.
Alone in our own and strangers today,
I'm ready for love now, don't fly away !
I want to give you a sweet magical kiss,
To admire on your face what is the real bliss.
There is something very enjoyable in the air,
Love is a precious gift I will always take care,
A slice of majesty, it's your lovely fragrance,
I want to call you Mademoiselle like in France.
