I sat watching
the final sliver disappear
below the horizon.
It was a chilly night,
lapped the shoreline
Stars began to appear,
one by one they
began to spark.
Venus joined me on
the jutting rocks
breaking the surf.
I could see
oblivious to my
hold of me.
I wondered about
the power of pheromones.
I looked up,
was in awe of the
growing in number,
it was a beautiful
night time sky.
The sound of kissing
and gentle moans
from unknown lovers
all my questions.
the long fluorescent light in the kitchen
makes an unholy hum on
at six in the morning
why am i awake again?
ten below outside, and even if i'm lavish with the heating
it's about the same in here
this kitchen, with that nasty buzz in my ears
but the coffee is brewing
and the last alarm goes off
i wonder if i should make for the city one day
it's never let me be
six becomes six-thirty
i'm careful not to burn my tongue
but i'm still reckless with my thoughts
wondering if i've a place somewhere between
friday night 'hell yeahs' and sunday morning 'hallelujahs'
A girl of only twenty two caught herself on fire
We passed by her in the Outdoors section of a convenience store
She was staring at lamps and tents and asking which is a better conductor of heat
All she got back in response was that they heat up fast and that you have to be careful with tents because of their flammable material
She splurged on all of them
Her cart was full of tents and lamps and, from what we could see, propane and cleaning liquids
It was like God had jumped inside the cart himself and made his very own rainbow from a building that never saw rain, and the only shine it got was from the glowing of polished tiles from extra, bright ceiling lights
You asked where she was going camping
She told you somewhere no one should ever want to go
You got confused then and since you couldn't find anything else to say, you smiled and spit out that you liked her blouse
She didn't say thank you, only nodded and made her way for the checkout lane
while we proceeded to make our way for cake batter and orange juice with pulp
The next morning we woke up with an urge to turn on the news,
See what the latest sad stories were this week
and the stories were always incredibly sad, only reminding us that that's why the news isn't good for our already aching heads
But we couldn't shut it off because the one heading this morning's breakfast was of a girl camping who had had an extreme amount of flammables and matches, lamps, tents, the whole nine yards
The reporter, a handsome man with black eyes, told that investigators are marking it as a suicide
and that she'd left a note stating to give the blue blouse folded on the passenger seat
to the girl who said she liked it at the convenience store the day before
I was appalled,
You were smiling and reaching for the keys
As I lie in my bed
Your face I cannot forget
You're like a star in the sky
A simple word good night
Can make my lonely heart feel alright
Even if you are far away
Your love in my heart always stay
My love for you no one can measure
So precious more than a gold of treasure
So mighty than the strongest knight
So wonderful like the stars in the night
You are so gallant
An attitude that I want
I love you so much
It's like God gave you to me:a perfect person
God is so mighty
And I am so happy
He gave me a great person like you
So true!!I LOVE YOU.

No one can love you the way that I do.
Decipher the codes on your finger nails
Because you can be beautiful without it.
Make you laugh
When you’re too close to crying
And you have no energy left
To lift you back up.
I can make heaters out of my hands
When you are cold,
And lyrics out of my love
Because no one can love
You the way that I do.
I can make you feel comfortable enough
Until you realize
That you should’ve felt insecure.
I can, give you promises
That will cut parts of my heart
And I will keep them
Because I like my new heart
Even better that way;
I can talk to you.
I can talk to you.
I can talk to you until we run out of water
And fresh juice
To nourish our mouths
And even then, I would still have more to give,
I can talk to you
At midnights and early mornings
Until our eyes
Are but seeds
Watered by the burning droplets of rain
Over the oceans of emotion over flowing between us.
I can listen to you,
I can hear your words
Like your heart was tapping
On my inner soul
And my heart opens the door
And tells you
“I know what you mean”
I can listen,
To the silence in your eyes
As they speak to me
I can listen,
To the depth of your soul
I can listen to that burning fire of yours.
That, and all that aside
No one can love you
The way that I do.
I've lived long enough to see
I've lived long enough to hear
but never it crossed in my mind
that I was deaf and ultimately blind
While others called her beautiful
I called her perfection
while people seek her attention
I seek her love, desire moreover lust
But I was never brave
these feelings only left on this place
the empty space that have long craved love
they called it the heart
the feelings got angry
so they started to rebel
and that was when
I became deaf and blind
