I barely manage
to catch your
out of the air
before it flutters
You are a child with
brimming in your eyes;
transforming you into
a gold-lit silhouette
and I am lost,
a nod (of sorts).
The rustling leaves around us
seem to hush, to coalesce with
the suspension of my breath,
it is almost as if the world
is as wondering and eager as I;
what will come next?
You lean in, and your lips
graze my cheek just once,
"I love you."

Beautiful brown eyes.
Your beautiful smile,
Leaves me hypnotized.
Whenever I see you,
I get all shy.
Whenever we speak,
My mouth gets dry.
When I hear your name,
My face goes red.
Seeing your face,
Imprints in my head.
I'm not good with words,
I never know what to say.
But I never want you to leave,
I just want you to stay.
Thinking of you,
My heart screws.
It twist and turns,
Because I like you.

Not wings beating in my chest,
But small illuminations of happiness.

Running fingers through your hair,
So you know that I'm here,
I will always be here.

footprints on the shore
waves washing over the memories of time

look at your smile
i want to stay for a little while
i hear secrets entangled in your voice
wanting to come out
in the sounds of summer
as your walls fell down around your heart
and when we leave
only silent imparts
we close our eyes on the sandy shores
of paradise eternal
forever alone in our paradise

The Night With YouHeart opened wideThe Night With You1 month ago in Free Verse More Like This
As your hair wraps around me
Delicate fingers swing
Your dangling figure
Twirling in the silhouette of night
Your face shining of Moonlight
Lips soft and draped
In a shrouded veil
Glistening stars from the sky
Pressed against my mouth
As you share the stars with me
On a lonely night
Two in the world
Of hopeless fright
Together we’re one
Of holy light
Both lost lambs
Herded by a shepherd
To unite one another
In the insanity
Which we call love
Eyes rage with darkness
But the Oceans you possess
Calm the raging beast
You continue to sway around me
Repelling the night
With the dress of white
Clenching you in my arms
Skin soft as silk
Melt into me as one
As I kiss you
With all the fire in me
That is my opened heart

Today I saw a boy
I wondered if he looked at me
His smile was filled with joy
My mind was out of me free
I can't get him off my mind
I'm so scared.
I think about him and I get blind
I blushed and he stared
Today I saw that boy
I saw him stare at me
With his handsome eyes
My heart felt like a prize
I want to tell him
I don't want to scare
or make him whim
or go in tears.
What do you think
What should I say
My heart might shrink
It's been on for days
I said hello
He smiled at me
It didn't blow
It went slow
My heart is happy
and my writing sappy
makes me wonder
Will we'll be more than friends

Back Then And These DaysI remember our first dance.Back Then And These Days1 month ago in Free Verse More Like This
Our friends pushed us together
And nervously we looked into each other's eyes as the music played.
Back then we barely knew each other,
But yet you agreed to go with me.
You were looking dapper in your green shirt,
Your rosy cheeked smile burning in the moonlight.
I wore a crappy blue dress and danced with my flats off
And you never stepped on my toes.
Truly we were meeting for the first time
Out on the dance floor.
Now, I can hold you.
You put your arms around me and hug me tightly.
But these days, even with my shoes on, you step on my toes.

I was a lonely soul until you came to me
Like an Angel, you came to me and healed
You made every piece of me new
With every smile and laugh you gave to me

For something so graceful and beautiful
It would be impossible to not love you
It's as if God himself gave you a piece of him so you may illuminate the world with your captivating beauty
You are absolutely astonishing with every action you make
I love the way the light of day shines on your pale skin and the way you look at me when you say "I love you too."
I love the way you make my heart pound faster when you say you can't wait to marry me and have my children

Love is. . .Love is. . .2 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
Love is when I can't fall asleep because you are on my mind.
Love is impossible to describe, like the taste of water, or like how you taste on lips.
Love is when I wake up wishing it was your arms wrapped around me.
Love is our morning texts and goodnight wishes.
Love is not being able to stop thinking about you, wondering if you are happy.
Love is the worry that comes when you are hurt, wanting to kiss your wounds, even if you are my strong solider.
Love is meeting your gaze and having my heart trip.
Love is laughing with you, our fingers intertwined swinging, wanting nothing more than to be beside you.
Love is not wanting a future without you, wanting to wake up beside you and knowing that you love me back.
Love is . . .being yours & you being mine.
