Night PersonifiedI am the night
Can you see me?
If you can at all.
Sometimes I can be completely dark,
The moon lights your path.
She sits in my sky
Watching over all
As I blanket the world in darkness.
No one realizes that I blanket them.
They take me for granted.
Yet I'm here
As I have been since the dawn of time.
I am the dark that falls before you fall into slumber
I hold the stars for you to watch
In wonder and in awe.

You and I,
Had a side conversation
He was jealous.
We didn't care.
We kept flirting.
There is a small
Are completely opposite.
That's why we get along so well.
We tell one another
That I love you
And you love me.
We're best friends.
Started up the steep hill
After that cup
Of bubble tea.
We trust each other.
To that frozen drink
Because it reminds me
Of you smiling,
Of your eyes
Twinkling with joy.
I love bubble tea
Because I love you.
TearsTears well,Tears3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
In the corners of my eyes,
Threatening to fall...
I walk in the door
And know that
Even though there might be people home,
My bed will be empty,
And these threatening tears will fall,
Only to hit a cold pillow...
I love you...
My heart aches every time we're apart...
Please help me cease these tears...
I don't know exactly what to do...
It makes me feel helpless
To know that I can't function completely
I love you so much...
Help me understand
What I'm going through...
This is all new to me...
As these tears threaten to fall...

My ex stopped by.
I broke down,
And he saw my tears,
It was almost as if nothing bad happened
As he kissed me for the last time.
Not one song
Can explain how I feel.
Cut and paste
The memories brought to the surface.
I want to cry into a full bathtub
As my speakers play
Songs for the broken-hearted,
And my sweet release
Lets the pain flow freely.
I might regret standing there
For so long,
And letting my vulnerability
Be so exposed.
My heart might start to heal,
My pain may start to dull,
My weaknesses become my strength.
May never come...
Our Secret EmbraceThe secrets of the dayOur Secret Embrace4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Play in our minds.
Sneaking around to hold each other
In our intimate ways.
Holding our breath
At every sound.
Time seems to move
All too fast,
During our embrace.
Nobody can know,
When we are together.
Parents would forbid
Causing more secret embraces.
I long for the day
When we can be together finally
No one will care
We'll be adults,
Be able to make our own decisions
You'll tell me you love me
In front of everyone
While I'm shrouded in white,
I'll say it back,
Before you slip that ring
Onto my delicate finger.
We must keep us a secret
And continue to sneak around,
To hold each other,
To love one another,
To see no one but the other.
I love you.
And our secret embrace.

Through Your EyesI wish I could see things,Through Your Eyes4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
See things through your eyes.
To be able to see myself
The way you see me.
You see me as beautiful.
I see myself as tolerable.
You see the world's natural beauty,
What I see is a polluted city.
Through your eyes,
The stars shine bright.
My eyes shine even brighter you say.
I saythe stars are just just gasous dots,
And that my eyes are a dull grey.
I want to see the world
Through your eyes and not mine.
Mine pickout the cruel and the ugly.
Yours pick out the amazing and the beautiful.
I can tell you think I'm gorgeous.
Have your opinion,
And I'll have mine.
But to see the world for one day
Though your eyes,
Would change mine forever.

ProposingChampagne glasses sit on the empty table,Proposing4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
With only a couple sips left at the bottom.
A laugh comes from the next room.
Not a bellow,
But a soft and gentle laugh,
Red from nervousness,
Sits a man,
Near a smiling woman.
His hands are shaking,
As he tries to break the ice.
The man gets up up and walks over to her.
She looks up slightly confused.
He gets down on his knee,
Fumbling in his pocket.
Her eyes wide.
Nerves disappear as he pulls out a ring.
Tears stain her eyes.
He asks the most intimate question of all.
"Will you become my wife?"
The woman is so choked up,
She can barely get her answer out.
The couple embrace in a tear filled hug.
He slips the ring on her delicate finger.
She smiles through the tears,
As he struggles to find her ear,
To whisper ever so softly,
"Until the day I die,
I love you."
She throws herself at her fiance'
Covering him with kisses,
"And forever there after"

My saddened heart feels heavy,
The "you" that I loved exists no more.
What happened to the man I loved,
The man I trusted.
Where did he vanish?
Why did you hurt me so deeply?
Will he show up i a crowded room,
Or an empty square?
When will he return?
Tears falling to the ground,
My life falling with them,
Mixing with the blood shed two days prior...
Honor Unto You - ValentineLove is a gift, that when sought after eludesHonor Unto You - Valentine3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
The heart and soul is from where it exudes
Romance is the key to unlock and discover,
The one and only to which I call my true lover
So it is written and so it is told
With strong devotion together we shall grow old
Our bond is strong of merit and virtue
For your safety and honor I shall protect,
No one or thing will I allow to ever hurt you
You love fills my heart to overflowing,
Yet day by day it keeps on growing
Our future we plant in the blessed union
As the seeds of faith shall lead the way
To my life with you, my gratitude is never ending
To the Lord's glorious grace which the Father is sending
To you I devote my life hereafter,
As you are the queen who fills me with laughter
She Is LoveShe looks at me and tells me she wants out.She Is Love3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I want to reach out to her and touch her, tell her it's all going to be alright.
She continues about wanting an escape, freedom.
I do all I can to not cry.
I don't think she knows how much I love her.
Sometimes I wish I could ebb her pain with my own suffering;
I'd suffer through anything for her.
I want to open her eyes...I want her to see what there is
in her life worth living for.
Because in reality, nothing is worth dying for as much as
it is worth living for. Even pain.
She tells me she wants to turn to narcotics, she thinks
those will take the pain away.
She's wrong. Half of me wants to knock some sense into
her. The other half wants me to embrace her curiosity and
let her try.
The whole? It knows that either would be foolish.
She tells me she doesn't want to feel real anymore.
She doesn't understand that there are some people out there
who's only reality kills them, because it's far from the truth.
She wants to give up the fight.

Answering that question is about as simple as answering, "What is life?". One subtle difference is that there are people who do not believe in love. I do not
know of anyone, and do not think it is possible to not believe in life.
But that is beside the point.
The point is that so many people of my generation (principally, young girls) think they are in love. Think they have been in love. Think it is some great,
wonderful, beautiful thing, full of happiness and wonder.
It is not.
Love is simply a mix painful and torturing agony.
People today think the movie scene love is what they will get when they fall, and fall hard, but it is not like that, never was like that, and probably never
will be like that. Not even just probably. Definitely.
Sweaty palms is not love. Love is not a racing heart, a trembling feeling, or not being able to speak in full sentences to that person. That is all liking
someone, to the point of nervousness. Far from love. Very far.

I really, really do!
It's not your fault
I just can't find the words I need to
To explain how I feel
To draw you a picture
Of what's going on inside my head
It doesn't matter whether you try or not
You won't be able to understand
But it's not your fault!
I really am!
But how do I explain‽
Emotions are so complicated
Would we be better off without them?
This wouldn't have to happen then
But some emotions are good
Just not the ones I'm feeling
Do you get it?
Do you get what I'm trying to say‽
I didn't think so
It's so frustrating!
Not being able to put it into words
How am I supposed to express myself?

Where I'm going?
Where I've been?
How am I supposed to show people
That I love them?
Care about them?
Care for them?
Or hate them?
If I can't find the words
How are they to know?
And how are they to know
What I think about other things?
Things like emotions
PlumSay what you will about the apple of Eve,Plum3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Or the coy virginal cherry;
Their feminine sensuality is overrated
And cheaply bought
Hard and red and sour
And waxed to a high, smiling shine.
There is womanhood to be had in a plum.
Beneath the deep purple peeks deeper red,
Rising from beneath the thin skin
Like a blush in a cheek.
The soft flesh gives beneath a finger,
Warms within the palm
Warms until it seems to possess
An unfelt heartbeat of its own
Beneath the smooth perfection of its unmarred
And blushing skin,
Warms until it adopts the warmth
Not only of the blood,
But of other inner things, too.
And now the plum, red and sweet,
Is mother, sister, warmed by the same heart,
Cradled in your hand in this quiet hour,
Cradled still as you sleep.
