Elijah Nicholas Oct 2015
And from the dirt,
Man was formed.
And from the mouth of God
Breathed life to give life.
Of all the things God created
You and I
Took his breath away.
Elijah Nicholas Oct 2015
I do not have the body of David.
Sculpted and chiseled from the hands of an artist.
I do not claim to have eyes
that were kissed by Aphrodite herself.
My skin does not glow
under the scorching sun.
The world does not flock to me,
and not a lot of people
are quite fond of me.
I am not what you wanted
and what you asked for.
But this is life,
and in this life,
we shouldn't ask for more.
Elijah Nicholas Oct 2015
And out from her mouth
Came the kind of song
That connected the heavens and earth,
The mountains and sky,
And space to eternity.
Her love didn't make sense,
But it was perfect.
The kind of perfect that left you breathless
After a good hard ****.
The kind of perfect that left you gasping for air
After the world has tried to drown you
And all the stars were cheering you on.
Poetry, and rainbows
Are not suppose to make sense
But if you look at it
From a different perspective
Then maybe,
Maybe it will.
Elijah Nicholas Sep 2015
We forget the things we want to remember,
Yet we remember the things we want to forget.
Elijah Nicholas Aug 2015
My eyes alone
Are not enough
To hold everything
That you are.
Thoughts at work
Elijah Nicholas Aug 2015
If our love
Is not enough
To make you
Forget about
Old lovers.

Then please leave.
Elijah Nicholas Jul 2015
I was never afraid of fire.
And maybe that's why
I fell in love with you.
