Showed me what it's like to be ok.
I listen to what you say.
Then save those words for a rainy day.
Because each word is a work of art.
And I keep them all in my heart.
You healed me slowly.
Gave me your love.
That's why your the only angel in my life.
And when I lost the one I loved.
My knees went weak,
You saw my cry.
But you still tell me I'm invincible.
Even though my words aren't pieces of art,
And my touch isn't as soft or delicate.
Though I'm frayed at the edges,
I'll always be yours.
For you are my angel,
And your wings are always around me.

and it's only getting worse.
Don't worry, I'm watching.
You don't see me, but I'm above you.
On the roof.
In the crowd.
In the hall.
I'm that shadow
the one that's always in the corner of your eye.
I will be there.
If you fall, I will toss a rope.
If you lose something precious, I'll leave it at your door.
If you are lost, I'll drop a map.
I am your good luck.
I am your guardian.
But I am not an angel.
Just a man.
And mortals need help too.
Unfortunately for me, I don't have a shadow to help me.
And it makes me feel alone.

You left us all behind
The world seems lost without you.
So please wherever you are
Remember every night to:
Paint the sunset.
Catch the fireflies,
To make the stars bright.
When I'm sad place the raindrops where my tears fall
Blow me a kiss in the wind.
Place your heart in the clouds.
Make the sun smile down.
Paint the leaves when it's autumn.
Make the snow sparkle like your eyes once did.
Tuck me in when it's winter.
Wake me up in the spring.
Summer tears may be all that's left but
Please, Paint the sky with love once you're gone…
Please keep the sun turned on...

PresenceMy pillow is you--Presence6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
My arms snug around you as I doze;
Having you comforts me into slumber.
My dreams are you--
Thoughts hang and peek upon your beauty-
You dwell within my mind (past, present, future)
The morning sun is you--
Starting my day as you wake me;
Warm kisses graze across my flushed cheeks.
Water droplets as I shower are you--
You calm me, cleanse me- wash away my tears
As you encompass me as an entirety.
The dawning blue sky is you--
I stare into you deep as an ocean, pondering
As you fade away only to re-visit me come morning.
The stars in the night sky are you--
Your luminosity evident and your brilliance seen from miles away.
You brighten the darkness for me, freeing me of fear.
Everything is you, and you are everything,
Your presence is well known to me-
No matter where you may be.

A slender hand raised up to the leaves and branches in the air, ruffling them a bit before pulling out a ripe red apple.
Oh, this one looks nice. a petite young woman said smiling at the fruit.
The beautiful princess stood in the castle gardens in a lavish lavender dress that complemented her very attractive figure. At least, thats what it looked like to the eyes of a certain hero who leaped over the castle gates and began his sneaky trudge towards her.
I bet it would taste delicious! she giggled and lifted the apple to her lips.
I can think of something sweeter to taste. said a deep muscular voice from behind and felt two strong arms wrap around her waist.
The princess gave a startled gasp and nearly dropped her apple. L-Link! she cried out blushing madly.
The hero chuckled, amused to see her pink face. Hey Zelda he purred in her ear. Miss me? he said nuzzling into her hair.

Enclosure. Safety. Locked against the outside forces. Locked
against love... but also against hate.
Slowly, shivering, gaining the strength to stand. Stand, and grasp.
Groping in the dark for the door. Clutching the knob. Unsure.
Afraid. And yet... excited. Hopeful.
Turning the knob. Taking a breath. Pushing on the door, revealing a
glimpse of light. Warmth. Love. Understanding.
Smile. Encouragement. Support. Opening the door more. Happiness.
Relief. A peak at the wonderful world beyond. Excitement. Throwing

Blindness. Heat. Burning. Hate.
Crying. Screaming. Madly groping for the door, pulling it close.

My eyes scanned the thick white blankets that laid around me.
Lifting my head to the grey, moody sky coldness floated down falling upon my face.
My breath formed white puffs in the air disappearing into nothing.
I would normally smile at weather like this but there's no warmth to hold onto.
No one to smile with me.
Letting go isn't easy.

But holding onto you was never easy either.
So what am I supposed to do when you just slipped away?

But you haunt me gravely.

So far from the ocean
can be seen your whitened wings
even in the greyest sky
you never cease to sing
Your feathers bleached by summer sun
and smoothened by rainfall
your voice is loud so all the world
can ever hear you call
You are like me, a wanderer
with nowhere to return
knowing that each different sea
is something new to learn
Take me, oh friend seagull
on a journey cross the seas
fly me through the rasping gales
and storms you pass with ease
I want to see the ocean waves
crest and spray the ship
I want to see the faraway lands
you visit on each trip
But tell me, little seagull
do you never tire of flight
do you never wish to settle down
and sleep a bit at night
For though the journey gives you joy
as below the waters foam
when others stop, you must continue
for wanderers have no home
And when you sing so loudly
is it really joy youve cried
or is it just to shut away
the loneliness inside

That you've put on me, cause there's no end

A blanket of your magic wraps me in
Every detail of you under my gaze
From afar or magnified, amazing
Strange my obsession with you
Reminds me of something I've been through
Would you know if you'd always known

They once held me tenderly, a radiation of maternal sun
On a darkness that seeped in little to none.
But now, they grasp in a clawing hold,
Like manhandled slaves before being sold.
They chased my own mocha twigs with honey laughs,
Her and I similarly the equation of two halves.
But now, he kicks me to and fro,
A sand bag bleeding scarlet, a continuous flow.
Hers were sweet, amber petals that found home in the fields,
A real-life image of what heaven itself yields.
But now, his ice is pierced deep in my core,
My body crumpled, wheezing, upon the dirt-ridden floor.
Her presence was sugar to me, a mellifluous sigh,
So the last clasp of her hand felt as if I too would die.
But now, the web of scars and lies ribbon on my skin,
Like insomnia, falsely vanished but would once again begin.

All you do is hold me down
Watching me bleed
Is it the fear of you that I lack
Or am I enjoying the pain
Your nails tearing into my back
It is more than that and you know it so well
Always in the shadows
My personal Hell
So go ahead and thrust your fingers into my chest
My soul is gone
My heart at rest
Finally, you dug in way too deep
Blood pooling around me
In my final sleep
I wish I could see your look of distain
As the sirens sound
Unable to remain
The call I made when I stood at your door
This time it will be you
A prison whore
Remember me my love as they use you without care
In your demons embrace
Youll find me there
Each time they thrust in taking what you have
My cries will echo
Giving salt instead of salve
Until in the deepest darkest of night
You come to understand
Youre in the noose so tight
Then dropping off into that abyss of death
I will be the one
Savoring your last breath
