There's a lunp of coal on my chest
And i'm afraid it's catching sparks
I'm afraid it's getting heavier
Filling my lungs
And i'm coughing black smoke
Cause your memory's been evoked
And now that you've been invoked
I can feel the spark ignite
Oh how it brightens the night
Oh yes i feel it lighting me up
Incandescent body
But I feel heavier
I feel exhausted
Exhilerated inside
I can no longer hide
My beaten side
Drained from my cries
So now all i have is a lump of coal
And a memory of you
And a body catching fire

~VJ

Love is fire
#love   #heart   #fire   #break   #romance   #ache   #catching  

Flaring silver in the dark blue sky
Sparks of light ablaze
Locked castle doors to imply
The secret of our hypnotic gaze

I climb the big, firm willow
And loudly whisper your lovely name
You slowly open your glass window
The glory to proclaim

Oh flying ravens of ebony night
Hiding our secret ways
A nightly tryst gone oh so right
Counting the dreamy days

Her hair flipped down
My expression, surprised
Beautiful brown
Needn’t be disguised

For her light complexion
Is brighter than the flaring silver
For her complete reflection
Is clearer than the pains within her

No signs of lust to be found
No signs of later on temptations
Only our love, deeply profound
Conversations combined with revelations

Her harp played harmonies sweet
So I knew you were neurotic
By the sound of your drum beat
And I, allured by your aroma scent, exotic

I come here now to serenade
And kiss your marvelous soul
For you I’d catch a grenade
And in your heart enroll

Midnights I spend in your garden of peace
Where peace reigns all over the air
Sculptures of gods, from ancient Greece
But you, My Goddess, are beyond compare

A lullaby I sing to you
While you sit on the wooden bench
And you wear your gorgeous dress, blue
Then grab my arms and clench



I long to see the moonlit in your hair
And drown in the depths of your attachment
I love telling you from time to time, how much I care
You’ve got me bound to your enchantment

The spring windy night breeze
We stand together watching the sailors sail
We listen to the rumbling of the trees
And stare as the land goes pale

The flower has begun to bud
The grass is greener than ever
They say water is thicker than blood
But our water ties will last forever

Passion you offered in time and again
And I gladly returned the favor
And not long ago, don’t remember when
I got to intimately taste your heart and savor

Oh long spring night, the time has come
For you to leave and accept the new season
I thank you for all that I’ve become
I thank because you gave me a reason


And yes my love, you are the reason to my life
The reason I hold on to precious earth
The moments we spend are always rife
The moments we spend are always worth

Hug me with your loving arms
Touch me with your lovely hands
I’ll protect you from all harms
And I’ll buy you all the lands

And here right now I say to you
That my love for you is ultimately authentic
The color of spring, we’ve seen its hue
In our insomniac nights, majestic

With your fabulous stare
I faint out of sight
With your divine hair
You caress me and cast out blight

And with my touch
Your lips I seal
And with my love
Your heart I steal

Today is the day of love's celebration
A day for couples to fill with elation
But what about me who's here alone
Wanting the explanation to be shown?

What about me who wants to be elated too?
Instead I'm alone again, joke's not on you
I've been craving a love that does not crave me back
I've tried all the loopholes, but there is no hack

So what do I do when time is running by
And love life's filled with lows, there is no high
Do I give up? Move on? Try something new?
Or do I cling to the hopelessness of our love being true?

Valentine's day making my heart weak
#love   #alone   #romance   #one   #unrequited   #valentines   #sided  

You see, I am not one to succumb
Or from this winter to turn numb
I have loved and always will
My reason and purpose to keep me still
No matter the deleterious travail ahead
You will never escape from my head
You reign over my thoughts and conquer my dreams
You break all the barriers and swim through the seams
A constant solstice when I am in the north
While you evolve, keep going forth
An aurora in a northern sky
Flamboyant miracle, the sun's goodbye
I'm right behind guarding the light
Exuberant spirit during winter's night
The darkness and cold freezing my heart's room
But if you are light why is there just pain and doom?
I have loved and always will
Because you're my house on a hill
If you think this is a hyperbole my dear
And that is what I truly fear
Don't underestimate my affection so fond and deep
That my heart you can own, my soul you can reap
Never winning the endless winter's war
Intensely trying to sustain the fire a little more
Arctic, just like the north's worth of ice
Like an unintentional board game you roll my life's dice
But I have loved and always will
And only for you I'd hunt and kill
You start and end the winter's war
You bloom and flourish in my core
But dear beautiful flower in my inside
You fill my lungs where affection can no longer hide
Despire their splendor, they prevent me to breathe
Look at the blue of my face and the clackling if my teeth
I don't know what lies beyond this frosty wall
I'm not ready to hurt more, I've been in the fall
~VJ

The cold of this season makes me feel vulnerable
#love   #war   #fire   #fall   #romance   #winter   #light   #cold   #affection  

I've got grenades pumping my veins
And pocket knives cause I'm not sane
I've got a fire that stops the rain
What time has done due to pain
Wouldn't even feel the deadly train
That could smash my ribs, my bones, my brain
Because of a desperate want I can't attain
A tempestuous burn I can't sustain
But I have a welcoming heart ready to contain
But you have never desired to remain
Though my mind you'll always retain
Aa my love will never detain

~VJ

Burn me with fire, drown me with rain.. I won't feel a thing
#love   #fire   #passion   #pain   #romance   #sorrow   #burn   #sane   #deep   #insane  

In a different dimmension
Of happy destinies
I'd be holding you close
We'd be making memories
We'd be staying up late
And strolling in the moonlight
Like a very first date
But happens every night
We'd be laughing and smiling
And the places we'd go
Midnight would be passing
But we would never know
We'd just keep on driving
Till the universe says stop
A love that keeps thriving
A love that's on top
We'd be missing and kissing
And changing the day
Hickeys, no biggys
For hours we'd stay
Lying on my matress
With your head on my chest
The perfect enchantress
Sucking my every breath
We'd be drinking and sinking
In the bottom of our hearts
The warmest of places
Wherefrom we'd never depart
We'd lose it, like madmen
But together we're sane
While I calm your heart
You calm my brain
In another world
We wouldn't be just for show
You'd actually follow me
To where broken hearts go
You'd mend it back
And kiss every piece
You'd set my deliverance
Sign my release
You'd fall for me
With no regrets
It's no decision but feeling
And only stronger it gets
In a different dimmesion
Your love would remain
There'd be no need for fantasies
That drive me insane
In a perfect dimmension
My love would suffice
To enthrall you for real
And shatter the ice
From my heart that you steal
And my soul burning bright
That seems to reveal
A terrible, endless night

~VJ

In another life, i would be your man

I just wanna be right here with you
Always and forever
Laughing and smiling and just living beside you
My purpose, my meaning, my reason to live
But I want more
I wanna taste your lips again
Like petals of the most beautiful rose
I wanna feel your skin against mine
Like a warm blanket amidst a cold winter
Will this ever happen?
Or will it just be my impossible longing?
Will this ever escape my mind?
Or just be the sole fantasy of a lost boy wanting to be found again?

~VJ

Nothing is ever enough
