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 !
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.

“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.
You make my heart skip a beat
You make my soul want to sing
You are the reason for my smile
I'd like it if you stayed a while.
I like the way that our eyes send
Messages. You're my best friend.
I think that there is something more.
We'll see what the future has in store.
But for now, best friends we'll stay
Until that very special day
When we both realize
That what we have is more than "like"
who will lend you books
when you’re sad
someone who will drive you home
while holding your hand
someone who will bring you to concerts
of your favorite bands
and someone who’ll make you laugh
when you’re acting bland
Love someone like me
for those are all that i can be
it’s just that you don’t see
how lovely you are to me
On being an old soul
It is difficult to be an old soul
Within this world of ours
I’ve only known a few
Who understand its powers
It is easy to see the grand mistakes
Others will take on
It is imperative we let them be
And let them carry on
For it is within each soul’s contract
To decide the path in which their life will take
We must not dissuade them from their destiny
For if we do, it may change their fate.
