My First KissThe moment was awkward and all was stillMy First Kiss7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
One moment we were laughing and then silence prevailed.
Our eyes met but I grew afraid
Quickly I blushed and looked the other way.
But he just smiled at me and took my hand
Sometimes I just hate it when he always understands.
And even more when he tucks my hair behind my ear.
He looks at me like that and logic just disappears
I get weak in the knees, my hands start to shake
Has anyone ever compared love to an earthquake?
If not, I would have to say thats how it makes me feel
I have to sit down or I cannot deal
And he just laughs at me as he sets me down
Safely, I sit upon the ground
But hes still looking at me strange
Is my secret out? Does he feel the same way?
But what if he doesnt, I thought too much?
And theres no secret meaning behind his touch?
I hate it when I do that
Its the reason why I never did well at math
Maybe if I say somethingwhat is this?
He just touched my

I didnt know how to start this letter
Dear, or hello, couldnt decide which sound better.
I went for the informal because Im not trying to impress
Try to make it laid back so theres no need to stress.
I know I dont know your namebut someday I hope
Well meet on the street and no longer be alone.
Sometimes I gaze up at the stars and imagine how it will be
Where will it happen? Will you just turn and look at me?
Will we discover the meaning of love at first sight?
Perhaps it will take one or two nights
Laying out under the stars and discovering the mysteries
Asking questions that have eluded the minds of many for centuries.
Maybe it will be our laughter that floats in the air
That makes us turn in the right direction, at that moment, right there.
Our eyes will meet, and it will be just like in a movie
Well smile at each other, and youll ask me out for a cup of coffee.
Oh the possibilitie

Most people giving you advice, might take a quote from a book
Most people giving you advice, have never had a real look
So from someone who's been watching, let me lay my heart bare
I want to show you all the special things, about the girl for whom I care
She always does her very best, no matter how tough the task
Even when she's struggling, she puts on a brave mask
She's always trying to learn new things, just for a chance to make you proud
She can be a little bit quiet, but I think that's better than being loud
She's not the very best in sports, I know she can be kind of a klutz
But she smiles and goes on anyway, now that takes a lot of guts...
She gets embarassed pretty easily and gets far too nervous to talk
But I know she'd like it if we held hands, whenever we went for a walk
She doesn't need a lot of pretty things, she just wants someone who cares
I bet she'd like to have someone, whom she knew would always be there
I remember when she tried to cook

My heart is broken.
But I can't let you know that.
Nor can I let you go.
At random parts of the day I start shaking
From the tears…that you left me
People gave me hope
People gave me doubt.
I feel like an idiot,
To let my heart break.
To entrust it in a guys hands.
When I know…multiple guys that have
Other women's hearts.
And yet I still entrusted you with that masterpiece
The one I created from scratch.
I am pathetic.
Obviously I do not deserve a guy like you.
But I can't help to wonder
what it would be like with you...
I feel like an idiot...but i want to help you anyway

You are my demise.

It can mess with your mind
And make you feel like a fool.
It can break your heart
And make you cry.
And there will be times
You want to die.
Love can make you do some crazy things
One moment you'll find yourself
Standing out on a limb.
Losing your balance
Only to find
No one is around to catch you
As you fall from behind.
Love can be evil. Love can be wrong
Love is not always simple
But it's always strong.
How it controls you
Is a question indeed
Because there are times I feel like
I will never be free.
Love can be prison. Love can be blind
How it messes you up
And takes over your mind.
Until you can't think of anyone else
It's their smile you see
Their happiness you feel
How it drives you crazy
How you wish it wasn't real.
Love can be silly. Love can be cute
It can make you giggle
Sound like a flute.
Melodious and peaceful
As it dances on your heart
Makes you giddy
Right from the start.
Love can be everything or nothing at all
It can be a slow smi

Reminding me of that dangerous glint

It wasn't the first time I'd made

But this time the shiver down my spine
wasn't from the cold
I was alone
Alone when you were so close
Yet set yourself so far
So I sit and watch the lights sparkle
in the faraway city
And try and guess which one belongs to you
And just like the waves will wash your

My tears will wash your kisses

These Tears Would Come:These Tears Would Come:These Tears Would Come:1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
If my tears could tell a story of two -
What would they have to say about you?
Of a boy who spent his whole life seeking
And a girl who found it in the arms of another…
Would they tell us of laughter? Beneath a starlit sky,
Or of harsh words exchanged on bitter nights.
Would they speak of moments, so beautifully captured;
To be enjoyed in memory, like a perfect wine.
Or perhaps they would tell us of an untampered truth:
Of the lonely nights spent longing, for an Eden lost.
Captivated, habituated, to this lonely habit of you;
For her alone, these tears would come.

Hummingbirds (the heart's song)Her mind is a hummingbird and her irises are wings, flitting from point to point, a shrill whistle coming from lips, overflowing with lily-nectar. There are bare brick roads beneath her feet but she does not notice. Birds don't need feet, and she is a bird. Small, light, the girl with stars in her eyes who sees herself with peacock feathers tucked into her pockets.Hummingbirds (the heart's song)2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
His thoughts are neat little boxes and the hummingbird has unpacked them with frantic fluttering. He is more of a stoic magpie, the sort who is labelled as 'sorrow' but will still sing a song for those who recoil in the hope he can reunite Pangaea. He is, nonetheless, distracted by the flighty hummingbird who has unraveled every emotion he carries in that fluttery heart of his.
The hummingbird girl and the magpie boy found themselves procrastinating from birdsong and forming their own avian music with the twin beats of fluttering aorta. The heart's song is the best music to watch fly on the wind, after all.

Love Beyond the WindowWhen I was young, I believed in fairy tales.Love Beyond the Window7 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
I believed that if your heart willed it,
That love could overcome anything.
That one day, two lovers could always be together.
But those were simple lies I think...
After all, how does one reach across a window;
Reach across a screen...
To hold someone on the other side,
Before they slip through your fingers.
Like a lonely dance between air and water,
I can only stand on the surface of the lake,
And see her smiling on the other side.
Sometimes, I would draw pictures on the surface;
These thin useless arms of mine scrawling tiny doodles,
And she would smile and reply to each one:
Including a heart, for 'I love you'...
And each time I would feel,
As though I could soar through any distance,
As though I could run a hundred miles.
If only so I could see you;
If only because I missed you...
But enough I say...
Enough of this life
