i want you because i shouldn't want you at alli want you like i want succulent strawberries dripping over a white lacy dress,

i want you and your collarbones tied to my strings of saliva,
i want you smelling like you're some wild wolverine with incisors as sharp as rose petals,
i want you broken and bleeding just so i can nourish your wounds.
i want you dangerously close and always so,
i want you angry as you are passionate,
i want you in ways i don't even understand.

I wish I could give you forever in time,
and I wish I could be there with your hand in mine.
I wish when heaven's gates open I can follow you through.
The Loveliest DissonanceI need a guy with a smile so contagiousThe Loveliest Dissonance1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
it would take a vaccination to subdue.
He'll have a brain so deep it could hold the world
and a mind so curious it would try to.
He'll need to be hopelessly optimistic, always searching the skies
in hopes of finding shooting stars, and he'll have dreams for eyes
He'll make the stupidest jokes and laugh at all my quirks
he'll pull silly faces just to try and make me smirk
I need a guy who's thoughtful and slightly crazy
and who sings songs because he believes he lives the words.
He'll prefer a girl who spends hours star gazing
to a girl who spends hours in front of the mirror.
And even if he might think badly of himself because he's odd
I'll just need to convince him that's why he's perfect.
I need a guy who understands my thoughts
even if they don't (often)

I'm allergic to you:
your scent makes me tremble.
Each time our bodies touch,
my skin tingles;
like millions of electrified needles
are stabbing at my heart.
And yes, I'm ill:
your voice gives me fever.
Every time you look at me,
I'm dazzled by the shine;
it's as if thousands of silver spiders
are weaving glistering webs into your eyes.
You're slowly killing me:
I can barely breathe when you are not with me,
because I'm buried, underneath the craving,
in which you've dug my coffin when you said goodbye.
I'm lovesick for you.

chiseled into our skins
we are gradients
from start to end

we have penciled in
all the ever after
hanging paintings from the rafters
with chapters of artistic zen
we are each a calligraphic pen
have spanned the distance
we fill the skies and sea
with prose and poem
and fashion new designs
from cirrus borne
our very forms
are swirling paints
and ordered space
and twirling ornate bone
we are the details
we call our own

A Series of Love-Made Mistakesi. I decided I wouldn't fall in love with you,A Series of Love-Made Mistakes1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Not as soon as I saw you in the flesh.
We were over before we began.
It's true you had (have) that quality
Which makes men's jaws grow tight
And their knuckles whiten.
You were handsome enough, at least,
To make every other woman sigh,
Seemingly, when you blinked.
I watched you as you prowled through them
Hunting for the one that was me,
Without even knowing who I was.
And as you did so, I felt the most uncontrollable urge
To claim you as my birth right.
So I did. That was my first mistake.
ii. My second came, a year-and-a-half later,
When I wished I was in love with you from the start,
Since it would have made my life,
Just that much easier.
Because surely you owed me
At least that?
You have to be what everyone wants,
This beautiful thing that's more than that pretty face
The glass made beautiful by its fragmentation
The rough diamond, all the more perfect for its
My wolf in silk
First FlightAs the recovery trailer departsFirst Flight1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
The instructor climbs out
With a smile,
And a nod
Says, "You're on your own...."
As I give the signal,
Apprehension my passenger
Leers from the empty seat.
I ease the stick a fraction
And leave the ground.
The glider ascends
But I, intent on the instruments
Mark this not.
Until, at altitude
I pull the release.
The nose dips briefly
To increase speed,
I check the horizon
And adrenaline floods.
Trained actions take over
As I take note only
Of my silent passage,
Of my flight to the sun.
Downwind leg, the bracing wires
Sing to me of eternal flight
A sirens lay
That I must resist.
Then the approach.
Intent, I maintain attitude
A steady decent
To skim the grass
As the spoilers extend.
The glider slows
And the port wing drops.
I exhale -
And revel in those three minutes
When I tasted flight.
Short Distancewe got most of what we wantedShort Distance1 year ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I guess I changed my mind
and built this chain
link by link
so I can lock us together
now even in such a short distance
we won't part
but the distance feels longer everyday
how come you choose to be so far away?
you don't care enough to call
the distance made you blind
maybe if I crawl
if I crawl
I'll see you in time
It's only a short distance
but time slips by
and I truly get nowhere
the road meanders out like a snake
tripping and hissing at each step I take
leaving me breathless and lost
what caused the distance to grow?
what will be it's cost?

I love a monster,
Who will never love me back,
I try to fight his grasp,
But it's to powerful and luring,
He brings me in,
Wraps his arms around me,
Then claws his way to my heart,
Peeling the layers of me,
He pulls my heart out,
And drives his claws into it,
As I slowly die,
The monster I knew,
Is forming into a prince,
As I lay limp in his arms,
He cries of the monster he became,
And of our love that died,
The memories we shared,
Both good and bad....

You pull me in,
You hold me near,
You feel my heartbeat in your ear.

to each other we meant too much.we couldn't be just friends.to each other we meant too much.1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
we know too much about one another -
things friends aren't meant to share.
also, seared into my memory are the moments that were beyond words,
when being with each other made us both weak, down to the marrow.
weak but so full, full of happy and comfortable -
the night we stood under that streetlamp, on the crusty pavement, among company.
we held on, as though protecting somebody we cared for too deeply to let loose again.
we didn't even have to speak to consider it part of our best.
we couldn't be just friends.
i don't know if it would have cut your hurt,
but i imagine it would be criminally unfulfilling,
we had once done so much better.
if by the end being together was hard enough,
settling would be a much harder struggle;
pretending the past never happened,
disregarding everything we said and did.
no, we couldn't be just friends.
to be honest,
i never really wanted to be.

Not for all their quirky quips.
Not because they moan and sigh
or because they cannot lie.
Not for the gentle words they speak
or for how they make you weak.
Not for their taste that lingers on
hours later once I'm gone.
Not for promises they make
which hold you captive and awake.
Remember gently well my lips
for they are how my spirit slips
and feels a comfort from you true
as my lips gently trust yours too.
Lonley HandsI miss the comfort of hands.Lonley Hands1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
Hands tangled in mine.
Hands to brush back stray pieces of hair.
Hands to lovingly kiss and cherish.
I miss the electric current of a single brush of skin,
or a long gaze between two sets of craving eyes.
The feel of an unbreakable connection,
and the taste of love's lingering kiss.
I even miss the fear.
Knowing that it can all crumble at any moment.
Knowing that nothing is permanent.
The ultimate loss. The uncertain recovery.
But most of all I miss the comfort of a strong set of hands.
And if I am every as lucky to find those hands again,
I will know to appreciate them every day,
and never let them go.

Where I may touch your cheek
And the silence seeps

Spare me of the devastation

And it will never dance as it used to.
Now my life is like a broken pencil
Pointless and not worthy of use
Therefore I demand a punishment so great
That will be so unbearable
So I won't survive it and be gone.
My rose of love, that spread joy in my heart
Your petals fall, your scent is fading slowly
You wilt, broken by time
The moon is yet still shinning, waiting for a new start.
Why end, when the urge to give it another chance is so great

Each other, your eyes, my love
When we couldn't sleep and dream in our bed of wishes.
Because there's nothing left for me to enjoy
