Steele and FleshTell me what it feels like
to slowy fade away.
Let me know what it feels like
to be alone ever day.
Your eyes are the only truth you offer.
Your lips are the only part of you that doesn't move.
Your mind is the only thing of your's that this world adores,
But your heart is the only thing I want from you.
Despite the steele and flesh you use to hide it,
I can see through it all and your beautiful core, every bit.
I can see because I care to see
and with you by your side hopefully be.
The fear of trusting me is very clear
and your soul clenches itself to its steele, that is clear.
I hope that you will gaze into my heart as well though,
and see the love, the kindness, and joy that wish to care.
The same pain you have felt is in there
and I leave out my heart in front of you bare.
I will be who you need me to be
until the day I no longer breathe.
Mirror EncountersI wash my face in the sink,Mirror Encounters4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Leaving my mind racing to think.
When I turn off the tap and look into the mirror,
I can only feel disgust and pure horror.
How could a god make something this ugly?
This tainted, this awful?
How can I go on every day,
Knowing this is what people see?
They say what matters is the inside;
Even I can see the audacity in that.
No one really cares about my heart's guide,
Just if look pretty to the eye.
I begin to cry and weep,
Nothing to hold back the pain from the deep.
I wish to fade to the black, into the ground.
But god, to spite me, will not let my soul drown.
Spontaneous SnuggleHe smiled as he sneaked up on the couch, his prey slumbering on the other side. He peeked over the top to see his target - his girlfriend slumbering softly, her golden hair flowing around her softly as she slept. He smiled and crept down to the armrest closer to her bare feet and peeked around the corner in time to see her quickly shut her eyes with a small smile and pretend to keep sleeping. He laughed softly and teasingly trailed a fingertip along the bottom of her foot, making her twitch. He trailed a few more times, making her wriggle her feet to avoid as her smile slowly grew, then backed off for a moment then tickled her feet fiercely, making her laugh and curl into a ball which he promptly pounced on and they rolled onto the floor on the blankets that had slid off her, both of them laughing and giggling until they came to a stop on their sides, smiling softly into each other's eyes.Spontaneous Snuggle5 years ago in General More Like This

But listen girly you have it all wrong.
I know you play a damsel and I a prince,
But listen and it will soon make sense.
The armor I carry is heavy and cut,
But underneath are many a cut.
You warm and safe the way I keep it so.
Sitting with the kind of beauty that makes you glow.
So would you open your arms to me now and then,
And heal my body heart and clear away my sin.
Would you once a year smile for me,
So that I might go on till the next time I might see.
Let me lay by you this night as I bleed,
Hold me close and help me as I might need.
And when I open my eyes will you be there?
Will I see you again when next I need care?
She Doesn't KnowShe runs to himShe Doesn't Know3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
And not to me
Her hair flowing in the wind
Her smile raising her cheekbones
He doesn't deserve her
He doesn't love her
But I do
I love her
She speaks to me as a friend
Because she does'nt know
And she doesn't know we could be more
Oh, the things I would do with her
The things I would say
They remain unsaid
I wish I could tell her
My promises I will not break
Yet she runs to him
And not me
He envelops her in his arms
And whispers poetry not of his own
He doesn't love her
But I do
He calls her "babe"
That is not a word you say to the one you love
Nor is "sexy"
She is NOT sexy
She is a beautiful creature sent from the gods
But she doesn't know
And she stays with him
He who doesn't love her
And I have to watch her fall

Eyes filled with tears so thick you can't see.
I'm here for you and I'm not about to leave,
So wipe those tears with your sleeve.
Just lay here and snuggle close to me,
Happy is what I'll make you be.
I'll tell the truth to you,
Smart and beautiful are you.
Once the tears have dried from your face,
We shall make haste,
We can talk and laugh together,
And lay here forever.
Hold you down and tickle you,
Laugh and giggle as I do too.
But when you are better I can leave,
Just yell when you might need me.
I'll be back to help you,
I'm always here for you.
Love on Every Inch of YouI love you.Love on Every Inch of You4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
With the glasses your classmates teased you about when you were little.
With the acne you can't seem to get rid of no matter how much you shower,
how little chocolate you eat,
or how old you get.
With whatever feature you find so utterly repulsive
that you cannot believe another human being would ever see you naked and rejoice.
I love that you are alive.
I love that each breath I take contains a little bit of you,
and of me,
and of every person who has ever lived.
I love pressing my hand to my heartbeat and knowing you feel the exact same thing.
I know you don't believe me.
You can't even consider the possibility.
And deep in your heart you doubt anyone
not just a perfect stranger,
but people who know you down to your last neuron
can really love you.
Do you know what else I know?
I know that it isn't true.
You are precious.
You are beautiful.
You are handsome.
You are every face I have ever wanted to kiss, to touch, to laugh with.

for all of you.
for those who are but are not.
for those who believe love is just a chemical reaction.
for those who are nothing but static on the mainstream radio.
for those who will never know forever.
for those who live in the highs and lows of the roller-coaster ocean breeze.
for those who hurt themselves because they're afraid of hurting anyone else.
for those whose cries have been drowned by the summer rain.
for those who have been mistaken for God.
for those who battle a thousand soldiers of themselves just to find who they really are.
for those who are nothing but natural disasters.
for those who sink somewhere between electric blue oceans and shimmering rainbows of euphoria.
for those whose insanity makes poetry - and those whose poetry drives them insane.
for those who are weighed down by gravity.
for those who have found equilibria in a heart that is caught in a chain reaction of passionate apathy.

Talk to me everyday about everything,
because I honestly just want to hear your voice
and feel your baritone wrap his strong arms
around my frail alto heart.
Sing to me...
Caress me in your arms, dear boy,
because all I want is the feeling
of your gentle fingers tracing
the creases of my back,
your hands holding my hips,
your fingertips stroking the marble feel
of my bare arms.
Be as weird as you can.
Nothing makes me want you more
than knowing I can be myself;
Strange, loud, and different
(Although I miss being able to swear).
Take me away and kiss the tears from my eyes
and the darkness away from my strained heart.
Replace the nicotine in my lungs with the sweet
unadulterated power of innocence, the kind that
I have neglected all these years.
Let me tell you all my secrets,
all of these fissures
that are buried
in my chest.
Just stare at me.
I want to see your eyes sparkle in my presence,
Too FarWhen I try to write about you,Too Far3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
it all seems so trite,
until I stop thinking and let
my fingers do the talking.
Saucy as that sounds,
it's the truth.
I can tell you more,
with a simple touch,
than I ever could by,
letting the words fall out.
And when you kiss me,
it's like a supernova.
When the rainbows come,
I'll tell them to check
back a little later baby,
cause I'm busy.
And you look at me,
that certain way...
Suddenly, I'm lost in your eyes,
drowning in a sea of green,
breathless and happy,
feeling more than alright.
I come back to earth and
you're grinning at me.
And I love what I see,
your eyes twinkling,
I know all is well,
because you love me.

In a little (or long) while.

Love Letters On the TrainDear Stranger,Love Letters On the Train2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I'm leaving this post-it tucked in the side of the train-seat. If you're reading this, you've seen it. I've seen you sit here every few Monday mornings, sometimes tapping a bent, unlit cigarette against your thigh, sipping from your tea (who brings a tea cup onto a train anyway?); sometimes staring at the rain outside, or reading your well-worn, beaten copy of Jane Eyre (I hate that you fold the corners down - it's bibliophilic abuse. I wish the book would papercut you to defend itself a little, but I digress).
You seemed so sad this Monday morning past. Please smile again. I love it when your eyes catch the light of something I'm unaware of, something silently and intimately your own; a secret from the world that makes everything all the more meaningful to you.
- The Passenger
I'm not in the habit of reading post-its from strangers. I found a love-letter hidden in a newspaper once, that the author forgot or was too afraid to send. It made me sad to think

That would keep my mind off you
Truthfully how little that I try
To keep you out of my eye.
The scars you make are so deep
that lately I begin to weep.
But always you come back to me,
Sadness sometimes as deep and dark like the sea.
I'll always comfort you the way your ment to.
In my arms you can stay warm,
Until the day that you heal and turn back to true form.
I'll bleed again that day,
But you know me... I'm here to stay.

This kinda thinking doesn't really let you see...
I love you and I care,
So please believe of me when I say for you I'll always be right there.
Don't worry about my heavy heart anymore,
Because the more you worry the more my heart becomes sore...
I'll wipe away your tears while I hold you close,
Did I ever tell you, "I love you the most"?
Yes, I love you dearly and always will,
So now here is the deal.
Forget my heart because its yours I want beating,
Dry all your tears because those I think should be fleeting.
I'll have no pain while I'm around,
All this for the Love who I've found.
