future ex-lovers

sit across from each other

oblivious

that what makes their hearts flutter

will one day

deplete their tissue boxes

and happiness

captured in their camera rolls

will someday

be wasting space

in their deleted items

because

one of their dates

will be

an expiry date.

I could still love and love
and give all the fucks, vulnerably
to the people
out of this heart’s delicate bravery
maybe it’s meant
to savor more heartbreaks
than reluctantly, sugarcoating it
nothing’s ever made it close enough
to come alive
because  
warlike hearts like us swore
we mattered once

There will come time of silence,
Time of fear, pain and horror,
When all men shall regret their presence,
And in those days, comes sorrow,

But before the end greets us,
And extends its open dreaded arms,
Let us live and worry not of our daily fuss,
Rejoice the gift that is life with the most beautiful sounds,

Let us drink and eat,
And dance our troubles away,
And may the devil on our heels,
bite its tongue over the joy in our days,

Let us bask in love, feelings and emotions,
Let us breathe the air in passing each moment,
And let not, our hearts be troubled by any commotion,
Let the smile and laughter be our favourite adornment,

I write to you,
Because I know you have known the future to come,
So alas and cherish these days,
Before they are done,

I want to learn your secrets;
hear the things you've never told;
reach inside and prod your mind,
burn the things that make you cold.

I wish to know your dreams,
those that keep you awake;
peak inside and try to find
a way to give your worrisome mind a break.

I need to know your sins,
the ones you're ashamed to speak;
hold your hand, comfort them away,
reassure you that they don't make you weak.

I hope to know what haunts you
in the silence of your days,
do you think of me, do you think of her?
What words do you wish you could unsay?

I yearn to know your desires,
fetishes that make you tick;
grasp your heart, feel your skin,
discover the way our bodies click.

I crave to love your soul
in all the ways a person could;
hold your fears, kiss your tears,
adore you the way a lover should.

You're my everything
My heart is tied to you
My love sewn into you skin
My flesh to hold you closer
Tighter
And I hope that isn't pushing you away
Because you have my heart tied
My love sewn into your skin
To have you leave is to take a piece
A piece of me
My flesh broken from you
Shattered
So I say that you're my everything
And that you've got a piece of me
That I would hold you closer
Tighter
And I hope
I just hope
I carry your heart on a string
And your love into my skin
As you hold a part of me,
And I hold a part of you.

This is a bit cheesy and soft. Sorry ^~^

God damn do I love being tangled up with you
I love your thumbs on the small of my back, pinkies on my chest, and arms around me.
Your wild words about life always bring me back to our beginnings
I love your legs criss-crossed on the ground
Your neck up against mine as we whisper
I love my legs high and our voices low
Being insecure I usually picture myself with faltered wings
All you do is caress me and make me believe I'm whole
You obsess over my open soul and my passion because they remind you that humanity is still alive and well
I obsess over your low growl and your exhale because they remind me that man is a simple creature
Your species is easy to please
But so is mine
Your lips could end or pause space and time.

Hope you guys like this one!

Thank you fighting Irish,
for standing at my side
and I will do the same for you-
as I share in Irish pride,
it's time for every Irish heart,
to come out from where they hide,

We have come amazing distances,
from oppression at our throat,
and we wear some real
deep battle scars,
in an Irish fighting coat,
as we sailed in ships from an irish loam,
as we sailed
in freedom's boat,

All we came -
to this place
yeah we all came the same,
an our happiness-
it was the goal,
in our knowledge
that all hard work pays off
well so knows the diamond
from the coal,
and happy is the little fish,
finding comfort in a shoal,

An it's tattooed on our skin to see,
on an Irish skin so fair,
and in every Irish freckle seen,
it marks connection that we share,
an I don't have to guess at all,
how much my Irish Brothers care,
it's never too much to measure in,
the familiar things we bear,

The same for Irish sisters too,
and all of any other race,
as we are all connected true,
in all the light and colored face,
the color of your skin does not,
provide one with their grace,

We all can be some
Boondock Saints,
like my badass Irish kin,
we all share our connection deep
down below the earthly skin,
to think that what you do -I do
if you do wrong,
then I too "sin"
an we should not be fighting here,
if we join hands-
then we all win,

So I send an Irish blessing
to help you on your way
an I know that you don't need it
but I hear the bagpipes say,
that we have still much work to do,
before we all can hear it play
so as I get down on a bended knee
and again this morn' I pray,

And yeah some hands
were made for fightin'
all defendin' Irish wing
well I hope St. Christopher
he stay with you
until the final ring,
and bring a comfort
to your heart anew,
the kind that only real love bring,

I hope it finds you well
and happy -
an you be contented with your life
an I hope that all are grateful,
for every child, man and wife,
the best time to count your blessings
is when you're knocked down hard
with strife,

So I am sending you my Irish love
I sing laughter
- living mirth
to spread the seed so wide,
an defend from hell
on  Earth,
returned we are to innocence,
returned in death from birth,

I pray for all a peace to come
that one day all will know
just exactly what it's all been truly worth.

Oh.... I pray for the world to be more tolerant For my "Irish" and for dear friend Brian wherever you are an all you too- happy st. Patrick's Day! X - Ma Cherie

My heart finally thawed from the bridges I burned.
Igniting past lovers like they were medals I had to earn.
The harder they love, the bigger the flame.
Incinerating their hearts to ash, branded with my name.
They will now understand the cruel lesson in love I had to learn:
Don't ever learn your heart go numb or you'll be cursed collecting lovers hearts in an urn.

Evil starts
"with every little lie" they said.
Yet here your heart lingers
neither truly alive or dead.
