Dear Kit, I fell in love witDear Kit,
I fell in love with you, so I pray you don't leave my side. I say this because you are not with me now, and I miss you. I miss the sincere gaze I see when your eyes and mine meet. I miss the way you toss your hair as you turned in my direction. I miss imagining a hidden smile as you walked ahead of me towards the ice cream shops. I miss the carefree laughs of summer and the warm hugs of winter. A busy life has stolen you away from my loving embrace.
But for now I will keep dreaming. I dreamt of chasing you through a frozen forest after a heated snowball fight in the yard. As you ran away from me, I gave chase, but mid-run I tripped and fell into a frigid snow drift. You'd laugh at my expense, but amidst your laughter, snow from a branch came falling down on yiu. For a moment of disbelief the two of us just sat then broke into simultaneous chuckles at our blunders. But oh the fun at the cost of a face full of snow. That's only one of many a fantasy as I lie i

and pretend we've never seen each other before.
It'd be the first time you see me
and I'd blush like mad,
when you mention how charmed you are

Let's forget all that happened,
and love all the way from the start.
walk through the same street,
under a very light rain
listen to our song,
while you slowly hold my hand.
Each night I'd wait your call,
so we'd talk, sleep and wake,
get used to us once more
you'd become my drug again,
my blissful addiction.
Let's throw away the lies,
the treason, the dreadful remarks,
and all the hurtful words
wipe our tears and let go of the pain.
yet my tears refuse to dry
I miss you, I long for you
but now I remember,
choking on our legendary love.
I can't forget the day
you finally let me go.
I'm burned and used,
Broken, can't be fixed.
I hold the scars you left me
across my battered heart.
Every day it withers

just as the taste of bitter coffee lingers on my tongue, your scent stains the air, filtering yourself down my throat and deep within my lungs, where you make yourself at home.
you proved that breaking the strongest muscle in my body will not kill me, and you will not reside within broken walls. so you decided to no longer live within my heart.
instead, i'm reminded of you with every breath that is pulled into my chest.
like that time last july when you mowed the lawn, bought me flowers and swore you would never leave. i never thought i would smell something quite so beautiful as your colonge entwined with fresh cut grass. (or that now it would hurt so much.)
you replace the air with memories.
yet, i still breathe.
ShorebreakHer words dawn on meShorebreak11 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
like morning surf breaks on the sleep-ridden rocks,
and like them I grow weary
They smooth away crags and wash over me
dislodging bits of my battered heart
that dash themselves against stony indifference.
And because I am each shard of shattered heart
and each fallen tear,
I am left as the briny ocean is
washed up and drained
on miles of gleaming white fields.
And still I cannot escape this labyrinth of steel.
She has woven it about me, as I stand
here again, motionless, still.

that perished with the wind,
then she decided to delay love
until roses are stripped of thorns,
and her home is washed of sorrow.
Maybe she'll be able to drink
her glass of sadness without added sugar,
and she'll simply hang her heart
from a noose in the ceiling.
Coming BackYou're destined to come back,Coming Back9 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
in one of those rainy nights
when the bells ring,
and people rejoice
you'll be there
and cry your pain over my soul.
You seek a lap to hide
from the truth in everybody's eyes
and warm up in my embrace
but my heart is colder than snow
and I poured poison in your glass
My heart promised me,
you'll come back
and sing our song,
call me love, and
promise yourself to me.
Repeat your words of longing
for my laughter, my smile
and I only fear my soul will give
before your lullaby.
I'm still waiting, you know,
for that rainy night when
you knock on my door,
and i will ask you
why you ran away?
who you left me for?
Go back, follow your greed
to your toys of diamond and gold.
This heart is long gone,
along with its shattered soul,
but be careful don't drink that wine
I still poured poison in your glass.

On this bridge whose floor is full of whispers
Love padlocks reveal me their stories as I walk along this shivering fence
Into a realm of promises sealed for eternity
Lying on the bench, my fellow cocoon
My gaze to the orange sky, chubby birds, morning mist
My back to the Seine, flowing muse among silent oaks
Youthful laughters around me, drunk of their genuine happiness
Blind sound of water is pounding
Your heels' melody brings my heart's colours back
I daydream I could be your Paris' lover
And wander where the blue blowing wind will decide
Sitting on a quay, an old photographer sealing us forever
Beauty that blinds and expectation that gnaws
I crave your womanly presence
DreamsLet me tell you about my dreamDreams11 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Of the girl that made me want to dance.
Her eyes as blue as crystal stream.
Transfix you with a single glance.
She's someone of a different mind,
Not afraid to stand out.
She has a heart, so very kind
With love you could never doubt.
She looked me square in the eye
And led my heart through foreign lands.
Something about her, I don't know why,
She made me feel safe holding her hand.
We ran through meadows full of colour
And sat together in the grass.
We danced among the blooming flowers
Together as the day flew past.
Her smile filled my heart with peace,
Her embrace brought warmness on my soul.
With her help, I finally could release
My past, she made me once more whole.
But morning light took her away
From me, ending the dream for now.
Leaving me hoping to someday
Find her again somehow.
Let me tell you about my dream
Of the girl that made me want to dance.
Her eyes as blue as crystal stream,
Transfix you with a single glance.

aimlessly follows the sun;
Running in circles
to end the same place
365 days later
for the sun is older,
the sun is bigger,

And maybe this is why
we blindly follow
these kinds of people too;
We look up at the sky
and trust the sun too

that sometimes we love something
we forever want it embedded
And even if the colors fade,
and the lines become wrinkled
Or even if we form a strong abhor;
an everlasting distaste for it,
the thing we loved

For like the ink it's written in,
true love lasts
How To Write A PoemSee, writing is a lot like walking up to people in a bar.How To Write A Poem9 months ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Let me paint you a picture.
Imagine every action you take as your story
Or your poem.
There is always a beginning, middle & end.
Most usually in that order.
I mean…you could try to go up to a stranger & asking them to marry you.
They’ll advise you to go to a mental institution.
I walked right up to my reader in a bar
As for some reason I often do,
I said, “You must have your sky miles card on today, ‘cause you are lookin’ extra fly.”
Now I know what you’re thinking…Who the hell is this guy?
He’s trying to teach people how to write using cheesy pickup lines.
But here’s my point.
You have to have a way to attract your reader.
As shallow as it sounds, you’re first impression is everything.
You’re first words will draw people in like Moths to a flame
(As cliché as that sounds…)
And if they don’t like it, they’ll be quick to move

Is it too much of an unfair accusation?
Or a bit too sad?
Perhaps it's a little too certain,
but I can't seem to care.
The kindness of your poems stirs
too many feelings I once buried,
an endless hunger, an exhaustion
that forced me to drop my jaded rings,
and lose the rose I once planted in my heart.
I offered you a field of bread,
soft pillows, and barely survived
the stomping horses that dragged
carriages of almonds to your feet
instead of running to the far edges of the world.
Spill your answers into me,
I still can't get myself to care,
whatever you say has lost its meaning,
I no longer know what's lie and what's the truth.
A wall stands between us now,
and darkness goes well with candles and wine,
but still a perfect match for the look in your eyes.
I know you're scrambling a reply, but
I know it's just as scattered as your shadows,
we no longer have a light.
I breathe, you breathe.
I blow, you blow.
I toss left and right, you toss ten

For I need your heart.
The war broke mine,
turned it into the fine wine
that tickles your pallet.
My heart was dug up when I was young.
Washed up along the coast that was once the desert
that had covered my home.
Now I look at you, the man whose blue eyes
and crimson lips stalk my shadow.
I do not want your fame, or to know your name.
Your whispers, or that radiant smile.
Your soul like my heart, good sir, is in exile.
Rejected and cast aside, much like the sea,
or the life you carelessly disregard.
Run your bloody hands through my hair, kiss my lips and whisper.
Without a care good sir, I listen to your treasonous song.
Without a care good sir, will my soul devour the corruption your slander has brought.
Without remorse good sir, will I sit only to devour your ink black heart.
Blotting my lips with the innocence you dressed me in, I have saved you.

But as I whispered, each word sounded hallow.
I knew, just like you, no one would listen.
Just like the sea, the silence consumed you.
It anchored your body and tried in vain, to hide you.
You spoke as the sea filled your lungs,
destroyed by Oxygen's affair you broke.
I sent you a letter.
One filled with so much regret.
Promises and dates never made.
A heart that will not rest.
I sent you a letter.
Right when you took your leave.
Because I'm drowning in this flirtatious sea,
please, love don't be mad at me.

Smells of winter.
Foggy trees, hidden flowers, fleeting scenery, everything blurs
The maze of my brain.
Shivering as if I was drunk with grief
Human wreck stares at me, hollow gaze
My past lives are hung on the wall of oblivion
Reborn from grief.
Eternal darkness reign above me, on this oppressive night
Snows of coal.
The image of your grave stuck in my head
As dead as you.

On our wedding day,
I'll hang our pictures out
on the fence around the house,
light candles in your name,
enough to make the stars bow to your allure.
Your lingering scent will replace the odor of spring,
and every new blossom will have a piece of you.
On our wedding day,
I'll wear the makeup you always loved,
and I'll wait under the old tree in our little town
My tears will run, but I won't dry them,
I'll welcome you with mascara lines running down my face
On the day of our wedding, I'll wear black.
Hold my head up high, and put on your helmet as my veil
I'll wait for you in front of everyone, and run to you,
when you come up the narrow, bumpy road.
On the day of our wedding, I'll cry.
Hug the flag that warms your cold body,
and replace the laurel on your forehead with mint
I'll hold you, claim our first kiss,

So he could have something to hold onto.
Something that couldn't fade. Something that wouldn't slip through his fingers.
Because he was lonely, hated and resented by the very people he fought to be.
Each day she tried...
to be their norm.
Stairs she could never climb, but then again, she tried for him. She didn't understand why, why this mattered why she had to exist, for the darkened shadows were there for her.
But no, not for him.
She screams, deep within. “Why am I trying to fit in. This crowd these people, they're not me. They cage, they bind, they prevent me, from being happy in this place, the darkened halls, the endless space. The peace within, that peace is me, do not bind me, set me free!”
Tears now fell,

as the air thickens with night's reign as fear spreads.
When will yesterday be a forgotten sentence?
We seek calm yet we must meet war head on without undue pretense.
To put the animal out of it's misery, to call upon those who seek to civilize,
I yet walk with my dreary head held high,
I float away while the greedy drown in their vicious lies.
Some may have sympathized for my plight
but the awakened souls know who has always won the fight,
now we are millions spanning all races
putting those who put skin or body ahead through their paces,
my name helped inspire a mounting torch,
your dying legacies of hatred are already among the forgotten faces.

The more you see, the more you weep. Tell me child what do you seek?
I seek a past that was once our future. Don't be afraid, you need not come closer.
The words you speak, bear the truth of the weak, yet I see not but inconsistency.
This inconsistency is your fear to lose that which you too hold dear.
Do not fear that which is unknown, it blocks your sight, but in time will show.

What you are...I too do see. Why you are free confuses me.
You need not be confused by that which is common.
But I fear, it is you who has become uncommon.

I let my memories guide my lost steps,
Wandering amid the ghosts of my past.
As I walk along the quay,
I stare at the feeble Seine flowing:
She's dying by the street lamps' hands
While the whole city asphyxiates.
Reflecting my own lack of humanity
Over the river's lighted surface,
Griefs come and go at the water's rhythm.
Once again, on this breathtaking night,
My feelings are sealed and my chest hollow.
Purple rain, chills of cold.... Or regret? I crave
My musical drug, my remaining salvation,
Spreading a sweet poison within me and
Eroding the remaining happiness I still have.
I plug my headphones...
A grin of relief appears on my weary face,
I flee to lenient lands, where a familiar Angel tucks me in.
These notes of violin split the immutable silence,
Fill the hole in, lit a bonfire to my soul.
This mermaid sings my dreams to me,
