There's something about you..There's something about you
But I can't put my finger on it
You're different from the rest
But in a good way
I don't know what it is about you
But you pull me in
Maybe it's your eyes, full of happiness
Or your long, wavy hair
It could even be your smile
One that is so big and bright
I don't understand why I feel like this
Every time I see you, talk to you
Or even just imagine you with me
My heart races 10x fast
It only happens when I think of you
You entice me, make me happy
And most of all, you love me back
That must be it.. No one else could love me back as much as you do
No one else would put up with me
I guess that's also why I love you so much too
I'm glad you're different from the rest
Because compared to you, the rest are like clouds in the sky
All pretty much the same and something you see every day
Please stay different from the rest
And please stay with me too.
I love you.

Through sunshine and rain too
Let me hold your hand
Let me be jealous on that pretty friend of yours
Let me be your girl
Let me hug you tight
as I whisper "it'll be alright"
Let me keep you safe
Let me wipe those tears away
Let me be your girl
Let me miss you desperately
Trying to make you fall completely
Let me write you stupid love-poems
Let me cry out of fear for losing you
Let me be your girl
Let me speak your name with care
I won't go anywhere
Let me look you deeply in those blue, blue eyes
Let me kiss those soft lips
Let me be your girl
Let me show you how to trust again
I'll sew up that vein
Let me be happy
Let me give my love to you
Let me be your girl
I wanna be more than just another one of your friends
more than that girl who always shuts up and listens
more than a close friend
I wanna be your one and only
I wanna be the one you know will always be there

Who is far away
But we still try
To talk everyday
We wait with patience
Until the day we meet
Our dreams so lovely
Oh so sweet
We hold each other
Close to our heart
But our biggest wish
Is to no longer be apart
We want to hold each other
Tightly in our arms
Hands bound together
Palms in palms
Now the next three words
Are oh so true
And those words, they are:
"I love you"

They say there is always a silver lining.
But right now my future looks bleak.
They say the sky is the limit.
But my vision is blocked by a mountain peak
They say life is a game.
But I was never any good at hide and seek.
They say were all different.
But does that mean that were all unique.
They say everyone wants to win.
But I have no desire to compete.
They say there are plenty more fish in the sea.
But they didn't say whether the water's shallow or deep.
They say everyone is searching for the same answer.
But I have'nt got it in me to cheat.
They say I'm too negative.
But I know this also comes hand in hand with defeat.
They say a healthy mind is a healthy body.
But I'm not to obsessed with my physique.
They say some situations you must face, face to face.
But sometimes I am not willing to turn the other cheek.
They told me some day I'd be someone great.

It's never easy losing a friendYou were my closest friendIt's never easy losing a friend3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Now I feel like you're a total stranger
We would talk for hours on end
Now we never even say a word to each other
We had many inside jokes
Now they would make no sense
We would stay up late and talk
And not care about having to get up the next day
We would tell each other everything
Now we tell each other nothing
We we would rush home every day
And wait for the other
Now that's all changed
As you faded away
You left my life
With nothing to say
It's never easy losing a friend
All because it feels like the end.
Living a Lie.Living a Lie.Living a Lie.2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
You say things you don't mean when you're angry.
You call me a waste of space and that you can't stand me.
When the dust settles you say you don't mean it.
You say I should know better than to believe it.
As usual I foolishly upkeep your illusive hold on me.
I allow you to mute my thoughts and take control of me.
You promise and reassure me that it will never happen again.
That this is the last time and you will put it all to an end.
But I know promises only comfort fools,
Who readily allow others to pull the wool
Over our eyes because it is easier to swallow the lies.
Can it be a mistake if it happens more than twice?
Despite my preaching I can never take my own advice.
I've realised that this aggression is a part of you
And because I can never dare to part from you.
I have to believe the love you have for me is true.
Sometimes you have to take a lie not for what it is
But for the truth and reality it suspends.
Withdraw your vengeful tongue and revert it into a kiss.
She is Me.You're distancing yourself againShe is Me.3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But I'm afraid she won't be following you this time
She can't 'Forgive and Forget'
She'll forgive because it's the right thing to do
But the scar will remain as a reminder
She doesn't want to be with the people who hurt her
Like you did
She doesn't want to get close to those who don't trust her
Like you do
She doesn't want to be betrayed again
Stop questioning her all the time
Maybe that's the reason she doesn't speak?
Not to get close to anyone
Not to let information leak
Not to have anyone know, what she has become
She's too fragile
Very soon she may break
Yet she still searches for someone
Who might hear her silent plea?
She is someone, whose pain you never notice
She is me.
Let Me Wipe Your Tearshere sweetie,Let Me Wipe Your Tears2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
let me wipe your tears,
i know the past,
may have held tough years,
they scarred your memory,
built up your fears,
but just think of,
our remaining years,
we'll be meeting at the airport,
kissing and smiling,
sharing our happy thoughts,
happy sort of crying,
we'll be kissing through new year,
cuddling and staring,
grins from cheek to ear,
i want you to know i'm caring,
i know you find it hard,
but i'm always here,
there's nothing you could tell me,
i'm not prepared to hear,
i know you remember disappointment,
but baby i can change that,
we could have our own appointment,
relax... and breathe... and lay back,
let me wipe away those tears,
just remember for me,
that from now on in,
you're life will be bright,
baby let me be you're shining light.

A little like I love you.
Like lovers kissing
For the first time that
It sets the world on fire.
And I plan to burn down
With it because I keep failing
To realize that I'm more than
Just a body for you to touch,
A body for you to hold.
You arms around my ribs
Makes me feel so fragile,
But so safe that I could not
Possibly break while you
And I can feel you hand slipping
From mine even though I beg
You to stay because I hate
The word goodbye and how
You look as you walk away.
I want you to remember me
When you arrive.
And I want you to remember me
When you leave me behind.

With no ideas in mind
Please don't hate it?
Please be kind?

I hope it's good enough
For I'm not the best
And I find poems tough

for the feelings flooding out,
from deep down within,

for the look in your eye,
when I arrive to tell you,
I love you, in a cry,
I can't wait,
to feel the pounding of your heart,
so close to mine,
rather than the usual afar,
I can't wait,
to hold you so tight,
to make up for the days,
i'd been waiting for the flight,
baby I can't wait,
for the passionate nights,
for the heavenly days,
to make everything right,
honey I can't wait,
to prove how I feel,
to prove we're forever,
to prove this is so real,
I really can't wait,
to make our start,
to challenge that the sea,
dare not keep us apart,
Autumn I can't wait,
to finally get to show,
that I love you so deeply,
that I'll never let go!,
Sweetheart I can't wait,
to cuddle so tight,
to prove to every single person,
that we were...oh...so...right.

What is love?Love is undefinableWhat is love?2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But you know when it's there
It's a felling in your heart
A feeling in the air
Love overrides all over feelings
And holds you in its grip
You don't want to lose it
And fall into a dark pit
Love is what you get
When you see that special person
And hold them close in your arms
Until the change of season
Love isn't something that comes lightly
It doesn't just appear
It only arrives when you meet that 'one'
And truly hold them dear
Love can take effect
No matter how far apart
The two of you may be far
But it's all in your heart
Their StoriesI've read so many stories,Their Stories2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
yet none appeal to me
I want the weak minded thought's,
I want to know their dreams
I'm sick of strong male characters,
and feisty female minds
I want someone who can't take it,
someone who's lost the fight
I want the truth behind the lies
Not the mask that hides the shy
I want their inner feelings,their core
I want to know their hearts, do they feel remorse?
I want to know their fears, their worries
I need to know who they are, their stories

An irreplaceable thing I had locked away
And now I'm empty within this soul
There's something I need to make me whole
I know what it is; but not how to
This little piece I gave to you
I'm only searching for this little thing
From the one who could always make it sing
But now that I look at this
You are the one person that I miss
I gave this thing to you; it's called a heart
That I always meant to tear apart
But I gave it completely to you
The only person my heart could sing to
And now you're gone because of the unforeseen
But believe me I see you when I dream
I never left; I'm still staying here
For you, and only you my dear
You left by force, I stayed by design
For my missing heart will Not Resign

Where everything felt so right
Holding these hands with you
Can you tell me now where those spaces have gone
Where everything felt so real between us
Holding our heart up high for the rising dawn
Can you take me back to erase my mistakes
Where everything still existed between us
Holding our feelings so tightly but it wouldn't break
Bring me back to the place where you are
Guide me to the fallen angels
Hold these pieces and tell me you aren't so far

To tell you who you are
So you might know yourself
In the eyes of your other
Love is lonely when you're alone
when your other has gone
to a place where you can't follow
You have been left behind
Love is lonely in a group
from who none has whispered
sweet nothings into your ears
that echo inside your skull
Love is lonely
if there is nobody
who cares to share
their love with you

Trying your best to catch them
But they always flutter away
And you end up missing by an inch
Trying to hold on to faded memories
As they grow distant in your mind
They used to be fond and strong
But now they're more like dying wishes
Holding on to everything you have left
Clutching it close to your heart
Locking it away in a mental cage
To make sure that it doesn't escape
Dreams, Memories, Feelings
You can't keep them all
Because they always flutter away
Just like a butterflies

Rain pelting the roof
here we are together
in peace with the world.
Breaths mingle together
a touch is all we need.
Here we are together

Lying here together, hearing your heart still beating fast
is this anticipation for the future?
When you hold my hand am I already thinking forever?
Is this what love is when its really real?
when I catch you looking at me like if im the only women in your world
when I look at you as the only man I can ever have in my world
no one can say there was nothing ever here before
because right now I can truly say I always felt this for you.
And love never felt this achingly sweet before.

And I mean right now,
That I have stopped caring
I have stopped caring for one specific thing,

These words have no hatred
Their purpose shouldn't intend any pain,
And they hold a thought from me deep within,
Did you know that it took me a while to wake up?
I was so drowned in these possibilites,
I was washed in the pipe-dreams,
And then I was thrown into the heart-breaking voids
It drove me crazy,
And I had hopes, even if I thought some of them were foolish,
Those hopes made me still believe that one possibility,
Then there was a shift that changed these hopes,
And I had finally opened my eyes
It had hurt for a small amount of time,
No later than a night,
And I kind of wish that I never became conscious,
But it was best for me either way
You still hold some of my hopes and such,
But I just have to be aware,
And I just need to help my heart with my head,
And think before I fall
Because at the end

Emotions start to hurt
That pressure I can sense
That pressure on my heart
And then it happens again
My eyes with water filled
Tears down my face stream
Unbearable is now the pain
I'm running out of tears
My eyes are getting dry
It hurts facing my fears
And I thought I couldn't cry
That river flowing once more
My heart is feeling weak
But I have to fight and be strong
It's my life that it's at stake
But tears come to me again
Tears show my real pain
I just want to cry and evaporate
How much of this can I take?
Now tears are coming no more
The fountain barren has gone
My heart is feeling empty
And my head is going numb
But I'm happy for my tears
They tell me I'm not dead
That there's something in my head
I'm happy for my tears
They show there's still life in me
That there's somewhere I want to be
I'm happy for my tears
Though they don't wash away my fears
They bring light and help me see clear.

Ignore it's message I now can't
I hear the music of the song
My mind hearing it along
The song begins, sounds play
The words in my mind still stay
Listen closely, listen good
The words finally understood
They come around, grab my soul
The words have reached their goal
My mind is depressed, I feel down
Upon my face an eternal frown
The sounds play with my heart
My moods always far apart
Sad now, happy a moment later
Both of each other the greater
Enjoy the music for the sound
It will make you jump around
Enjoy the music for the words
It's you soul it girds.
