Days have count
Breaths have weight
The hours bounce
With no bound
Leaving us dead in many ways
Has its price
Until there’s no more left
Of our lives
So I’ll learn how
to love like…
That’s so powerful and deep…
That’s so vast and unending…
That’s unconditional and enduring…
That’s loyal and true…
That’s brilliant and pure…
That’s clear and sharp…
That’s patient and fierce…
That’s magical and precious…
That’s lovely and meaningful…
That’s beneficial and growing…
I want to love like all the things in the world
What ? How? When and where ?
Enough my mind !
These questions are driving me nuts
due to her
I can't ignore her presence
by pretending being blind
Honestly, I've never confessed my feelings to her
since once I try to do so,
hesitation and fear with my soul intertwine
You know what ?
I'm starting to grow white hair
because the convenient way I can do so,
is quite hard to find !
My sweetheart !
Perhaps there are no moments for us
It's because you haven't seen what I carry inside
However, I constantly see your image
floating in the air
a masterpiece with your name combined
I can't say that people as you aren't rare
since you are one of a kind !
Should I describe your teasing smile
that within the unconscious becomes aware ?
or that pretty face of yours
that glows like a sunshine !
Should I talk about your fascinating eyes and hair ?
or the laughter of yours giving people a piece of a mind !
I don't know how to express my feelings to you
Unless by saying I love you !
I like your strength of character
I like your mischievousness
I like your tenacity
I like your sense of humour
I like how you think
I like how you see the world
I like the flash of darkness that appears in your eyes from time to time
I like your grumpiness
I like your quirkiness
I like how well you understand people
I like that you are selective in who you like
I like that you don't take BS
I like that you speak your mind
I like how you maintain your composure
I like how you calm me when I am anxious
I like being with you
I like being held by you
I like knowing you are near
I like that you share
I like your poetry
I like that you care
I like that you woke me up
I like dark colours on you
I like pastel colours on you
I like your depth
I like your voice
I like your romantic side
I like your protective side
I like how you speak
I like your hands
I like how you look into my eyes
I love your eyes
and you know what they say about eyes...
“I like you” he whispers as we lay intertwined
the touch of he skin and the way he touches my thigh
the corners of my mouth curl up to the sides
My fingers slide along your skin like the wave of the tide
your goosebumps raise as I trail your sides
tho goosebumps are mine and whats yours is mine.
The getaway is close to our eyes,
Can't you escape with me?
You're not obliged to.
It's true that a wrong is committed at least once in life.
Knowledge is the result of multiple mistakes,
I long to know what exactly motivates your fate.
Join me this way,
I would appreciate it if you did.
Alone, it would mean hardship.
Wear me daily as if I'm your favorite logo,
Don't complain of the imperfections.
Believe me, I notice them too.
Explain to me the unexplained,
Answers are what we all want.
Some answers are more apparent than others.
In order to find the less obvious ones,
It's necessary to dig up ditches.

You're the kind of boy I cant tell my mother about, because she warned me not to fall for guys like you. I guess she didn't warn me enough because oh did I fall for you. She didn't warn me that you would leave & everything I've come to know would be complete & utter bullshit. She didn't warn me that I would see you on the street with a new girl, & I'd go home and cry for 3 days. She didn't warn me that mascara is so fucking hard to get out of pillowcases. & she didn't warn me that no matter what I do, you still don't want me. But she did warn me not to fall for you, & next time, I think I'll listen to my mother.
