you asked me to write a poem about you
and i am honestly, for the first time,
at a complete loss of words
i think it almost impossible to write
a poem to match and compete
with your flawless beauty
and i am afraid that if i even bothered
to try that it would be incredibly
pathetic and dull in comparison
so i guess all i'll tell you is that every
waking moment, i am thinking
about you, and loving you
and wishing for your beautiful form
to be completely vulnerable and
fall asleep in my arms again
i fell in love with the way you loved
and the way tiny lights danced
in the glimmer of your eyes
not a day goes by that my thoughts
are not revolving around you
my love, i have fallen
and only you
We lay together, it's a beautiful night
No clouds in the sky, just a full moon
We hold hands and you look up at the stars.
"It's beautiful," I whisper.
"They are, aren't they?" you say, gesturing upwards.
"Oh, you meant the stars? They're pretty ugly compared to what I'm seeing." I reply.
Curious, she turns her head and sees me staring at her.
A smile lights up across her face, and for a moment I am blinded.
Then we kiss, and for some time, I am the happiest person in the world.
This happiness was not to last
For when I woke up, she was not in my arms
But she had left a note.
Before I even read it I knew something was wrong
There were tear stains on the letter
And it was written in messy handwriting
I begin to read
And words burn themselves into my skull
"It's better this way" or "nothing will change"
or even "I'm sorry I couldn't love you as much as I hate myself."
And then my world shattered.
Feeling feelings I have never imagined.
I could feel the walls crumbling down every time you smile.
Passion. Happiness. Love
Moments when I look into your eyes and I saw mine looking back
I could now feel myself for the first time.
Of all God's creation, I love you the most.
In your arms I long to be, embracing me tight.
Sometimes I fear that you may leave.
But you reassure me with your comfort.
Now I realize the treasure of love.
For real love stories , never have endings.
We shall stay like this,
Forever, if ever.
You were swaying like a gypsy,
lost in her own trance.
Never have I seen someone move with the beat.
How beautiful indeed!
They say that if you give it all,
You will get the lovely prize.
I showed you how much I care,
Eagerly, I opened my chest and offered my heart.
But then you said, "I'm not the star that you think,
but rather the lonely sky dreaming no more;
For love means someone falling,
and I'm afraid of heights."
How stupid I felt for holding nothing back!
Maybe it was all lies, her smiles and kisses.
She is gone, perhaps dancing with another man.
She left me dolour and hollow.
You're probably just some too cool sports chick
Yeah, you cut it clean,
But all your amazing elegance, what is it really worth to me ?
You've got dates with stars and magazines and people I just see on TV
I've just got dirty dishes and laundry to clean
I'm foolish to entertain the wish;
That a Gurl like you could love me
Do ya ever whisper anything meaningful to her about what I had to say
Hey CC boarder you seemed cool but your laggin; Call me to see me today
I am not The Enemy, not the demon
Not the man who caused you
Nightmares, body rigid, sweat streaming
Late night screaming
Nights of tears, the culmination
Once again of childhood hidden fears
The weeping, the crying, so many tears
Cold cadence after a night of joy
"I don't love you anymore," careless
Words, what are you to him, some toy?
Kindled spark way too soon rendered
Momentary unsure a withered bloom
Desolation winter park you linger
Momentary frozen cinder arch
Sealed the hopes as seen splintered cracks
Of hope exposed a million pieces lay
Was once a dream I dare to hope, deep
Within inside sealed silent screams
I should have known in matters of
The heart, my heart, nothing is ever
EVER as wonderful as it seems
Fortune favored me at least, you never
Held my heart and I don't still care for
You deeply, but that lack of ownership
Saved me the sickly sweetly
Taste of thorns pricked through
Heart flesh, friendship never now is
Much more safe, smart, I don't still
Want for you any of the best...N O N E
No rest, fuck 'em, fuck you,
Back to start...

My Father my Lord
Hold me close to your heart
I cannot do this life without you.
You hold me up
You love me purely
You are the greatest joy.
Remind me of you
In your grace do I thrive
Thank you for my beautiful life.
You are my strength
Looking after me constantly
You are my saving grace and my Lord.
A rose in her hand
A flower in her eyes
A garden in her heart
A smile on her lip
Love is beautiful
as beautiful as a rose
Love is sweet
as sweet as her smile...
In her heart a garden of rose....
Love me not; lust prevails;
It is free for all reasons;
Touch me not; mourn echoes;
It is liberated for all seasons;
Be a green landscape,
Emotions never escape;
a dance before the fire and blood;
Burns from night to dawn;
turns with no dead ends;
Hairpin Bends are for no returns;
a wild wind whispers;
a shade of death appears !
You are love joy peace patience
Kindness goodness faithfulness
And you, in comparison to me,
Are the most pure human example
Of love, that I have ever seen.
You are patient and kind, you
Don't boast or get angry
And you don't keep records of
My wrong, even when I do.
If you need your space and time
To discover what you need to be
I will patiently wait right here.
Just as you were always there for me
I will be here when you are ready
I won't give up, best friend.
You've shown me unconditional love.
