I held on to the time before me
I never let it go
I kept it in my arms at last
But when you left I let it go

And now I am spent
And I don't think there's anything left
Time is gone
And I'm alone
Nothing here at my home

Now time is fleeting fast
Seeping through all the cracks
The cracks that formed
The day you left me torn

My soul is the canvas you had been painting all your dreams on but couldn't wait for them to dry.
Colors consuming me while you're getting black and white.

You would say,
If It were so.
Remind me
To grab a coat,
For the chill and snow.
If cash was tight
We'd be home at night.
If she didn't make the cut,
Forgot her lines,
Or missed the shot,
There was no sugar-coat,
You said it straight
If it were so:
Girls, you're doing fine.
Today is was, not now.
Wait til next time.

If it were so,
You'd say.
So say you love me
One last time,
So I can let you go.

I feel lonely every time I think of you;
My first love
I thought I found the perfect match for me;
The match for my heart
But you slipped away between my fingers
Now you belonged to me no more;
The saddest sad

I must fight each day and night to live and love again;
Like I used to be
I'm counting on time to pass quickly but time is infinity;
Eternity is a long time
What is wrong with me?
Do others feel the same way or is it only me, myself and I?
So, so crazy for you

I would wait every morning and evening;
Even for eternity
Until you come back
Whether in this life or the next
I want to be with you forever and a day;
My first love.

When my best friend lost his first love, he never let go of her. Though he managed to move on, after a long time, he still feels her in his heart and loneliness blooms too much when he thinks of her. I hope that one day they both could unite.

I thought it was the breeze
Sighing past my window
But it was only the echo
Of a rejected love song.

this hollow ringing
in my ears,
the drum of
your heart

beat

beating,

I can't get the dull silence
of smoke and your lack

of

pulse

to leave
my heart,

imprinted there
with all the love I ever had--

I'll never forget you, fuu. (01.26.2017)
#love   #heartbreak   #loss   #cats   #lostlove   #fuu  

Had I known, for certain,
With a seen future,
Had no doubt,
Safely forewarned
Of my foreboding loss,
Of how we'd turn out,
Would I?
Knowing I'm here enduring
Hearing stories concerning
You.
Yes... I would.
Even though I sit here,
Writing silly poems,
I get it out,
I read it.
It helps.
Ah! But why Would?
Many say we failed,
But
You can't make
Teachers and scholars
From exceptional daughters
With failure.
We're merely a statistic
In family demographics
To them.
And yet,
Three girls don't add up to
Your subtraction.

Full moon veiled in a silken mist
Outline dim and wan
Mocking the hour when last we kissed
Now that love has gone.

Like Severus and Lily,
We came to each other by chance.
I transfigured myself into your life
Already on a pedestal,
Our words chaining ourselves
To each other
Until death.

Years have passed
Without so much as a flicker between us
But here you stand
Today
With the words of our pasts
Strung together and hanging like frayed ropes from your wrists.

In my dreams you come to me
With your hand outstretched,
A snake burrowed into the cuff
Of your long sleeved,
Blue-collar work shirt.
I do not hesitate to take it.
I am bitten.

I wake up in a cold sweat,
The snake of men past
Now burrowed next to me
In the king sized bed.
I am not afraid
But I do not trust.

The silence pierces my sob
With a thought of you.
The quiet evening floats through my sigh
And carries memories of you, while
Writing interrupts the meditation of my pen
With an ode to you.
