Your fingertips always trace my shoulders awake in mornings,
Covered in softness and smelling of love.
It's like the touch anyone would love waking up to,
But never knowing for just how long.
So this morning I willed you to keep going,
Inhaling as your palm glided across my chest,
Twisting in bed as you hugged me closer,
And smiled when you kissed-my-lips.

I would willingly let you kidnap me,
Tame my heart to love.
Locked away for only you to touch,
Strangling desires to hold.
If that's what it takes me to realize just how much I love you,
Then I would willingly do it,
Before it's too late to hold onto the truth.
When I See You09/01/09When I See You5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Every time I see you,
My heart feels like a torn paper wing.
Not that I want to,
But it's always so unexpected for me not to.
I try to deny the feeling at first,
To walk the days waiting for more.
Imagining the cute puffiness of your eyes,
Tasting the happiness in your smile.
But soon I realized you've never broken my wings,
And that feeling is more beautiful than all the beautiful things...
So I know I will never have enough,
Of simply seeing you again and again.

I am drawn to you with every breath,
Following the need to take your hand in mine.
The urge to caress your inner sides,
The need to wake up to you every day.
The love I have for you is not perfectly complete,
But it feels as good as it can be,
Aside from simply,
Being with you.

Tell me a story about love,
Like how you write them with your lips,
Paint them with your hands,
And never missing a heartbeat of a smile.
Tell me a story with that smile,
Like how I always believe it's something more than feelings,
Something more than lies,
And when it comes to you...it may just be true.

I could be the smiles in your eyes,
The laughter to make a thousand words to paint that perfect picture...
And still barely complete.
I could be those tears in your eyes,
Caressing the anger of a love incomplete.
But maybe I am just that reflection,
Of a simple mind,
With enough love just for you.

I remember kissing your cheek,
Right in front of your left ear,
Looking into your eyes,
To tell you just how plainly I love you.
I remember kissing your hand,
Falling in love with your smiles,
Even when I've made more than enough.
I've always been true to my heart,
One broken maybe too many times.
Even when everyone around me convinces me otherwise,
Love is still love.

Just A Dream12/08/08Just A Dream6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I don't want to live the life of a soap opera,
But I am.
I would gladly trade it all for that first love I had,
If only it's more probable than a dream.
Just so I could put my chin on your shoulder while you read,
To kiss the bottom of your neck before you sigh.
Just so I could bury my nose into your hair,
The way you bury yourself into my chest.
Just to whisper my thoughts in your ears,
As if it's not only just a dream.
The Perfect CrimeThe Perfect Crime7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Remember when we were young?
When we plotted what we could do:
Breaking into songs,
Getting into trouble,
Stealing candy from the shiny glass jar.
What do we do now
That we have committed the perfect crime?
I have stolen your heart,
And you have stolen mine.
It's not enough,
For now we have to steal time.

There's that beautiful smile again,
The fragile twinkling eyes searching within my mind.
Angels like you shouldn't exist,
But like fairy tales that just happens to be,
Your smile opens my heart to a world of light,
Banishing doubts to corners of my heart,
And dancing promises,
A love to complete.

Recalling conversations in my head,
Is what I love to do about you.
The way you add "definitely" in front of conclusions I make,
And the occasional expression of unexpected surprises.
Talking for hours,
Seem like minutes.
But the little lasting smiles I have,
Shows just how much these few minutes really means to me.

Saying I miss you is like a confession,
That I can't be without you.
Not that it isn't true,
Just that sometimes it's not enough.
Like the few moments we could find together,
Exchanging kisses of affection,
Touches of longing,
A few words of love,
And memories for two.

Never mail this letterI've been dreaming about you again.Never mail this letter9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
You always seem to pop up in places you shouldn't be
when I'm dreaming. Maybe, that's because you do
when I'm awake as well.
Hiding behind this thought;
peeking out from behind
I didn't even know I had.
Last night, I dreamt we sat in my Grandmother's house,
smoking cigarettes & wondering why
we never figured things out sooner.
You threw your cigarette off the dock and smiled
when I told you
I had us figured out all along.
Well, guess what?
I'm awake and I still do.
So, I'll see you again,
when my head hits the pillow.
(There are some secrets I just can't keep from myself.)
