I'll take the lead from here…
If only to help make my thoughts more clear. I opened the cavernous depths of my heart to answer endless questions,
For every question, was there ever an answer that didn't beget a lie? One born of inconsequence, a habit to mask an embarrassing truth. Dolled out like flyers on a busy street walk.
I’d have never considered its outward growth. Until tendrils of regret made its way through.
Heartache and failure falling past the tip of your tongue. what once were worries, now changed to a life come undone.
Listening to bitter hearts brandishing optional advice. Really dished by those needing it most. Should i brush off those old pills to swallow, and drink in the 2 cents from last night, they always came to late.
take it seriously?
nah ill pass, thank you.
with my heart burst open, my leaky love overflowed. spilling over and over in teardrops. soaking my pillow. I’d rather drown in my memories.
our hearts were true once. but maybe that was to long ago.
(work in progress)
upon the delicate leaf of a barely budding rose.
i planted a kiss.
in hopes that with care, the pieces of my heart ever so softly falling like raindrops, would nourish such a weakened state.
though stubborn at first, nourishment reached deep, into unkept soil so determined to keep.
until at last, strong roots took hold.
hour by hour, petal by petal, spread blossoming brilliance stretched up to the sun.
unyielding great beauty, only heard of in lore. i could only but pause as the care i had felt grew into a love.
i felt it more…
you thought me less.
this open heart,
what a hot hot mess.
you loved me once, maybe…
i thought it true.
this open heart,
what a hot hot mess.
with little words,
this open heart
i surrendered to you.
i felt it more,
you saw me less.
my opened heart
this hot hot mess
the gift of her gab has got my world turned upside down.
she speaks in rhythms, and enunciates with style.
my pleasure lies only in this one story she describes.
adventure grips my body as tales of exotic landscapes escapes her lips.
you are the warm embrace
that leads the chill away.
you are the lingering taste
on my lips with each waking day.
leaving your intoxicating scent
on my pillows and sheets,
you envelope my every sense.
just one look, just one touch
you send all my worries away.
i sit waiting for something, maybe a reply.
your memory still vibrantly etched in the framework of my mind.
maybe you'll come back, and keep company with my lonely heartbeat.
but you've left me empty:
since she went away.
so simple her touch,
if only time stood still,
when she held you close,
the feeling would be eternal.
we sat awhile beside each other
you held your hand to mine
intertwining both our fingers,
we both were swelled with pride
in unison we stood up
for the whole world to see
to show all those who doubted us
that we were meant to be.
only you can...
leave me paralyzed by your touch, love
and i blinded by your beauty,
am left only the enthralling sound of your voice.
a sweet melody that makes music of my name
and leaves me yearning for your kiss,
on this golden summers eve.
forever and a day,
with you i'd like to spend.
with both gray haired heads we've gained
guiding our memories.
we'd walk right past the centuries,
with both our hands entwined.
giggling at the passersby,
as we recalled our young sweet time.
the fire we have within us will need no kindeling,
for our love keeps them burning for all of eternity.
the sound of your voice
swing swings on my heartstrings
like a melody to eternity.
oh to hear that sound again
oh to be your muse...
it is my lovely lullaby
and you my dream come true.
having watched you inhale and exhale in detail,
you recount your daily news,
you share with me the troubles you've had,
the humorous too
though you always save the best for last
when our time has come to part,
before the distance overcame our souls
you share with me your heart
whispering "oh how i miss you so"
you are an like an exciting novel to me
of which i can not let go.
I'd take all the minutes my life still holds
to read your pages through.
for ever more her memory,
for ever more as such.
how bittersweet the scent she left,
and lingering warmth of her touch.
she took away her presence,
left with me her ghost.
in my dreams, i feel her...
all through the night.
it is in the morning sun,
when memories will fade
and the reality of heartbreak
slowly continues on.
i wanted to love you for forever.
but i guess,
forever was to long to stay...
i still think of you...
ever more so when the loneliness creeps in.
you were more than just a fraction of my life
i wish you'd have been it's whole.
i am starved for her touch, always.
when the shadows of twilight over come my room.
i imagine her hands upon me
sending warm shivers up and down my spine.
that need, envelopment,
a promise of comfort…
our history was in Polaroid fits,
but pictures were never enough.
just a moment in time
hinting at countless memories untouched.
sing to me your midnight lullaby,
let its melody fill my ears.
with every breath you exhale,
the sweetest pleasure takes its toll.
you are the most addicting life
this world will ever know.
