Similar Deviations

And if I was to die tomorrow,

Before the sun has risen over the valleys

Where we used to walk hand in hand,

Talking about the future,

Our lives stretching out behind us like foot prints in the sand.

 

Know in your heart that I am safe and I am well.

And when loneliness comes knocking,

Please don’t think that I have just disappeared. 

I told you, I would love you forever.

That is a promise I know that I will keep

Because even after I am gone,

You still know where to find me,

The place in your heart that you carved just for me.

 

Please don’t be angry, I did not want to leave.

I know these days will be hard,

And I can no longer be there to wipe away your tears

But please stay strong my love, please don’t disappear.

When times are tough, think of all the that memories we made,

But also know that it’s fine to fall in love again.

 

Don’t let my memory rule you,

Live your life to the full,

But know that I will never leave you,

And that in some way, no matter how small,

I will always be there

In the sun that sets across the valleys

Where we used to walk hand in hand,

Talking about the future,

Our lives stretching out behind us like footprints in the sand.

the crescent moons bitten into my palms
break apart the hard worn lines written
there. a fortune teller told me
it was just a matter of time before my
universe crashed in on itself
and my stars ripped themselves apart.
your gray-sky-eyes swallowed me whole
and i fell down, down, down
while your piano key fingers played
my melody one last time.

your metallic voice drips off your tongue,
acid burning through my paper skin.
a siren song drifts though my mind;
i am a ship crafted from the daily news
being pulled in by your gravity,
sinking your raven colored abyss-eyes
and crashing into your rocky shores.

I can paint the world
With colors,
And words,
And images,
Turn the gray
Into a bright, vibrant landscape.
Illuminate the darkness
Create a beautiful world
With my mind.

I would be satisfied
If I could make
Just one square inch of the earth
Exquisite,
Breath-taking,
Serene.

One day,
A gust of calamity shall sweep across the earth.
Each creation will be seen in it's true light.

I wish to create beautiful things
Though it may be sad
Driven by anger,
Or despair,
It is also driven by
Passion,
Love,
And a never-dying hope
For tomorrow.

God how I have prayed to never fall prey
to the nectarine gossamer caught on the
cornerstone of your mouth,
a celestial house

Lips radiating like redshift,
indomitable as quasars with
enough poignancy to pierce through my very pulse while
you create maps, circumnavigating through these
black holes that you bore into my being and very core as
my spirit surrendered to your summons long before

I am an ocean of stark emptiness and
you are seemingly endless seas of starburst

You leave and I break into
cold sweat, blueshift and pale skin

Memories of starry night, air on the g string and
cigarette stained fingers about coffee drained tongues
hang on for dear life like
deadening leaves on dampening bark fearing the
fast approaching icy drafts

No matter the nebulae and speed of light,
no matter there be an earth or home to return to or not,
you are for always where I end and
begin

In you is my equinox and
together we shall always lay down and
die only to lay in each others arms soon and
again




Free Verse :heart:
Starry Night- a famous Vincent van Gogh expressionist painting
Air on the G string- a famous Johann Sebastian Bach classical piece
a few of our favorite things

it's like you
wrapped your fingers
around my throat
and then had
the nerve to ask me
to breathe.
You do not know what you've done, it seems,
and I am broken.
I'm sorry.

Constellations wrung of
Their bright
World.

Celestial grace blazing
On pavement
Stars

The Milky Way
Sings in
Falsetto.

Winged guardians sail
In seventh
Heaven.

wind caressing my face,
tangling my hair,
cooling me down 
on this hot summer day

watermelon juice
running down my chin,
spitting seeds
hoping that they grow anew

my daughter's smile
when she splashes me in the pool,
her screeching laugh
when I chase her

it's the simple things
that make me sigh with contentment,
it's the little things
that bring tremendous joy
Written for this months contest in :iconexpressive-poetry: and WINNER of first place! Squeeeeeee!

The theme is happiness/joy.

What makes you happy?
