It was only today, this feeling had begun,
He is not immature, nor is he mean,
For he, a best friend is just like the sun,
Eternally there, even though he's unseen,
Looking into his deep, amazing, blue eyes,
Her secrets, she knows he will keep,
Between the two, there will never be lies,
In his arms, she could just fall asleep,
In the summertime, under the night, starry sky,
They look up and tell tales of their past,
They laugh, joke together and they even cry,
It's these memories that she wants to last,
She dreams of their future, perfect and pure,
Deep down inside, he dreams of the same,
She's looking for something, yet she is unsure,
It's not royalty nor is it fame,
He's always sad, and yet he hides it well,
Unaware of this, she makes him smile,
Everything here, is what she wants to tell,
Wants all their moments to be worthwhile,
To her, he is perfect, she would not change a thing,
And she wonders what he thinks about,
But she does not know what the future will bring,
But they'll alw
Make A Wish With MeI want to see your smileMake A Wish With Me5 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
Everyday we're alive
And I want to hold you
Until it's time to let you go
I want to hear your laugh
Until you start to cry
And run out of air
To even speak to me
I want your happiness
To come before my own
I've only wanted you
Before anything else in life
If I have to
I'll take a bullet for you
I'll pull that trigger on me
Before it's even aimed at you
I don't want to cause you pain
Please don't cry because of me
Let me fix everything
Before it becomes a mistake
Please take one step closer
To where I'm standing
Because it's so lonely and cold
When you're not here
I'll always love you
So please return my feelings
And tell me you'll always
Be here with me
Even if we have our differences
I'll do whatever it takes
To fix my mistakes before
We fall to pieces
I want to see your smile
Everyday we're alive
And I want to hold you
Until it's time to let you go
Nothings ever perfect
But I know if we try
We'll come close to something
So perfect and true
I want you to be th
Your Promiscuous WaysWhen you suddenly took my hand and told me that you love me,Your Promiscuous Ways5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
I've never been more touched by the need in your voice and the love in your eyes.
And when you look at me in that promiscuous way,
I can think of nothing else but being gazed upon by you every day.
You don't do this often most of the days,
But when you do,
My heart burns of an unmistakable need in return,
And I can feel this love in your ever simple words.
It's the kind of love I've always wanted,
The kind of voice that makes everything just fine.
It's one of the most beautiful feelings I've ever had,
And something I don't ever want to forget.
ReassuranceHearing your voice,Reassurance5 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Is like breathing in the summer warmth.
It reminds me of the times you whispered in my ears,
More distracting than all the music in the world.
And I wouldn't miss it for anything in the world,
To be with you as time takes its turn.
And when everything comes to an end,
We would've written our own story of love.

To Know YouTo know you,To Know You5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Is to love you,
Because what I know of you,
Forces me to feel this way
The only way that it changes,
Is that it grows stronger,
Every moment, every lifetime,
Together, we truly belong
The same, this is what we seem,
Thoughts and words,
Finished in each others heads,
Shared passions, shared dreams
I have only two choices,
To show my love for you,
Or to lie to myself and the world,
And hide away from the truth
I choose to show it,
In any way I can,
Because you deserve it,
Because you love me
I don't know how to be any other way
I would still be this way even if I did

SeparateIs it wrong to miss youSeparate6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
As soon as you leave my sight?
And if it's considered wrong
Then I don't know what's right
I think I want to be with you
But I also think I'm afraid
This feeling, it's so captivating
But can be a double edged blade
You bring me so much happiness
But happiness doesn't last
At least not to long for me
It tends to fade too fast
And then I'm broken again
Left alone once more
And I hope that doesn't happen
Like so many times before
I guess I fear you a little
You could break my heart
Rip me into pieces
Completely tear me apart
Even if I know that you won't
You don't want to cause me pain
I think you care about me
But to my scarred heart, this I can't explain
For it foresees a day
When we shall separate
There will be nothing we can do
Such is the way of fate
And maybe we'll talk for a while
A little less each day
And then one time we'll realize
There's nothing more to say
And that will be our end
And we will be through
And I'll be a distant memory
And I guess, so will

I used to day dream,
Find you through the crowds and say hello.
Listen to your songs,
And tease you about them being old.
And I always say what I mean,
Why I love your little smiles,
Holding your hand,
When you say you don't want to be alone.
But I can't seem to convey just how I feel,
As you tell me of just how much you love me now.

Mending A Heartgoodbye.Mending A Heart5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
A word so simple,
Broke me to tears.
I never thought it'd come true:
My biggest fear.
I had put up a wall
To ward off love.
I didn't even feel it fall,
When it was too late to rebuild.
Your melody so sweet,
Had a tearful final verse.
I find myself walking streets,
Trying to find who I am
(Because I am lost.)
Now as I gather the shards,
To my crushed, glass heart,
I know the truth is,
I'll always try again.
I know risks seem unneeded,
But I take them every time.
Because you need to be willing to jump,
In order to fly.
Even a broken heart,
Can be mended once again,
I'll start over in my head,
Let someone more trustful in.
sixShe told him she was not the same.six5 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
She told him she was not the same and there as an unusual sensation that came from under her skin, deeper than the bottom of a cheap flask, farther than his words and his kiss and her wishes could reach. Her bones were shifting and her ligaments were stretching and the growing pains were not what she expected in the least. Everything about her ached, from her thoughts to her heart to the butterflies in her stomach, and when he lay close and held her fingers at night and brushed the golden waves from her eyes she wanted him why it felt like he was pulling her seams apart from the inside out. She told him his eyes shimmered the way they had when they spread themselves beneath the stars and she could hear the sound in her throat from trying to swallow the truth in her words. But when he kissed her eyes she could not keep down what she meant even if to make the moment hurt a little less under her own skin.

when I no longer know
what you see when you look at me,
is there something lost
far away behind your eyes,
have I become miniscule?
Where do I go
when I can no longer
bear to write beautiful sonnets for you
because each thought of love
is born with a measure of pain?
What is there left
when I walk around the edge
and feel my balance start to waver
yet I do not know if I will fall into you
or on the other side of the abyss?
How can I live
when my world stops making sense
as I start to feel you crumble from
beneath my fingertips
this ground I walk becoming
Is there enough
to hold this together
or am I starting to wake
from the dream of you?

When all it saw was black and white.
He always knew that he was something else,
Maybe orange, green, or navy blue,
Though he never knew exactly what.
Sometimes, he thought he might be
A blend of everything
Or just a few.
But he knew that he did not belong
That no one would accept a passionate sunset
Or an unpredictable sea
When everyone was meant to be a patch of grass
In an abundant open field.
He blamed himself
For being different
And not knowing how to fix it.
And they blamed depression
Typical in teens like him;
You blamed yourself
For never telling him that uniqueness
Is the most handsome trait,
And perhaps some people didn't understand,
But there were others who did
Like the only other person he still saw
In violets, yellows, and reds.

taping airplanes in your alarm clock so you can
fly instead of dreaming of me. And I've been
wearing the same pants till my fingers fall through,
poking the last hole in the constellation over your bed,
manning control centers for your safe return.
Tell me every distant star stays blinking like eyes across
a prairie road waiting for home. Tell me home is filled with
all of your laughs in clay jars with cracks in their sides.
Tell me you need me more than my pockets full of
quartz for your Sandman, and, every time you're flying,
you're really dreaming of me.

that he's smiling with
his eyes closed
and his mouth half open
to catch dreams in;
not when she sits there

tries to remember
and all those candles she lit
blew out in the wind,
and all the dreams she had
got lost in other people's hands.
and she says, "love is
like a staircase,"
but she'll never reach
just float between
and maybe she could be beautiful
if someone would teach her to
cup both hands
around her dreams
and not let go.
