Ghost
Erian Rose Oct 4
Her voice trembled under unsettling cold
breath hitched at starless dusk,
an ocean of black ink
drowning the moon's marvelous magic

Footsteps echoed her own
a balancing act in the dark
playing with unwritten spellwork
scattered in her shaken eyes

She wasn't afraid of what lurked
Beneath the running seas and crashing shores
the orbs that followed her
all but left to her cryptid-tale

In the Mountains
Erian Rose Oct 1
Green nights dusted newly fallen leaves
tumbling about aimlessly
in the mid-autumn breeze
creating pathways to the unknown

Deeper woods trailed sea salt skies
Smells linger of
forgotten books, hollowed trees
midnights up past sunrise

Stars twinkled above
A guiding path for all
of adventure that awaits
In the mountains to the coast

Cemetery

A brink of clouded moonlight
amongst oranges and blood-kissed red tucked away between headstones
with stories longing to tell

Rippled Shores
Erian Rose Sep 4
I'm still me
And we're distant now
I've gotten stronger
And growing loud
Sometimes I wonder
If you hadn't gone
Extending hands
Vast beyond the sea
Collecting deep-colored shells
For a heart severed-to-be
Erian Rose Aug 31
Glancing above
To the star dusted sky,
My heart twists and flips
At the very thought of you.
Of our wild adventures.

Can we be as close as we used to be?
To the blaring sounds of the radio,
Dancing till we're out of breath?
Clasping our hands tightly,
Unwilling to let go?

Listening to our hearts
Beat on endless repeat,
Laughing till we're the only noise left between us?
Forbidding our eyes to escape eachother?

The moon knows
How much I speak of you,
How our secrets tangle in the wind.
How much I long for you to stare up at the night beside me.

When the stars melt amongst the darkness,
They always lead me back your way.
te quiero ❤️

Overgrown
Erian Rose Aug 1
At the wake of morning day
I’m guided far away
Amongst the overgrown gardens and trees
On an endless path to be

Faintest scents of herbs and tea
Scurrying friends chattering beside me
Rising sun dew brushing my fingertips
Alone along forests gaze

Go for Launch
Erian Rose May 30
We look to the stars
Dreaming higher
than rockets could fly
Skipping across the galaxy
To a place humankind has yet to be

We watch in awe
Constellations beaming wide
Taking flight into the atmosphere
One day, Everyone will have a chance to walk amongst the milky way

We draw out our plans
Sending them to the stars
Innovating new generations
To the farthest reach from Earth
Living stardust made to touch Mars
Tribute to the NASA/SpaceX launch today.
Opening the doors to one day have everyone be able to see Earth and beyond from space.

Erian Rose May 20
seasons pass
months fly by
crisp November air
trembles bittersweet
changes go past
from streetlights on main
to budding riverbanks
a love lost
for something and somewhere
far out from grasp

wild hearts
Erian Rose May 19
we held onto dreams
wider than the Milkyway
dancing under the pouring rain
wishing dandelion buds
into a one-way to center stage

we stayed up past daybreak
conquering our fears
shaping them to laughter
timeless to the melody of
Our wild hearts

Born a Poet
Erian Rose May 14
I was born a poet
forever-be
before I realized
I was sneaking behind
plastered brick walls
at recess bells
transforming the world
into words
spilling ink pens dry
I was born a poet
I embraced beauty,
enfolded magic,
encased the man on the moon,
tracing bare sentences
amidst pure wonder
until their final moments
till they cried
the truths of neverland
upon the immense star clusters
I am a poet

Far Away
Erian Rose May 12
Where waves broke
pounding on the shoreline
where salt and foam fled
crashing into rigid stones
Clear blue waters
dark as charcoal moonlight
hammering in hurricanes
Racing with the constellations
to a place of stardust
Where she found
her home in the twilight

sunflower
Erian Rose May 4
She was
footprints traced in sandy waters
sunflower fields
bloomed in thorns
thunderstorms swept
in salty air
Her spirit twinkled
of northern lights
flirting with a million acres
of honeydew blossoms
She was
the magic
that he adored

Streetlights

Under the streetlights
on the corner of 11th
autumn turned into showers
your pupils reflected
seasons becoming racing beats
hours stumbling out of reach
Erian Rose Apr 30
she wandered the fields
curiosity in her eyes
honeysuckles blooming
welcoming springs arise

her feet skid gentle ground
stumbling over crumpled petals
leaving all but a sound
clouds waving to her surprise

treetops hang under concrete walls
love developing in simple tone
she built her home of bricks and sandy shores

A Million Lonely Stars
Erian Rose Apr 21
I turn to the sky
With a face of longing
Somewhere to belong
Within these troubled nights

I try to connect the dots
But they fall apart in my arms
Leaving behind
A million lonely stars

I look up to the song
Dancing along a bittersweet breeze
And dream of the day
These walls will become a home

I close my eyes
Touching the stardust trails amongst bleeding scars
Somewhere out there I'll find
A million lonely stars

Home
Erian Rose Apr 10
the long road may be far
out of reach
but I count my blessings
a guide home

the setting skies
fall below
but the courage he gives
helps me live

i'm thankful for life
the mystery as it is
chasing dreams
being teenagers in the dark

home may be out of reach
yet in my heart
the miles are no matter
from point a to point b

Lost & Found
Erian Rose Mar 21
A world awaits
Past the skies
Lost by twilight
Invisible to our eyes

Hoping for something more
Real
Crossing the seas to find the light
That life burns out

Over cities and mountaintops
Higher then the stars
Erasing our scars
Leaving behind broken hearts

There’s so much more to explore
Somewhere unknown
Somewhere waiting
To be found

Skyscrapers
Erian Rose Mar 17
The stars mended overhead
Igniting the night
Sounds of the bustling highways
Blocking out the fear of falling

I stared up at the skyscrapers
No one would notice if I fell
Life would keep going on
It always does

A cold breeze brushed through
Taking a step at a time
Up the skyscraper
Until I see the skyline

Lights exploded
In the whites of my eyes
A city engulfed in darkness
Standing still

It only took a second
For my feet to fly off the concrete
Plunging towards the ground
No one noticed I jumped.

The world keeps moving on.

roses
Erian Rose Mar 7
You never leave my mind
Even when you're away
My mind keeps racing at the thought of you
You're my everything

You never leave my mind
It's as you're sitting next to me
Listening to my heart thump away
As roses bloom across my face

You never leave my mind
Listening to these love songs while you're gone
Smile growing like the rising sun
Your hand intertwined in mine

You never leave my mind
I see us dancing in the night
Playing around in the fields of trees
It feels like you're here

I love you ❤️
Someday, we'll be forever
For my love ❤️

Forever with You
Erian Rose Mar 5
Kisses don't compare
To all the little things we do
Singing in the car
Holding hands
Dancing in the kitchen

The little moments last forever
With you

Forever remembering
the feel of your lips on mine
No matter the time

And live our lives
No matter how far apart we are
We can make it through

Dear Judah,
Erian Rose Jan 5
You make me feel so much
I can't wait to be with you
No matter how far the distance
Or the hardships throw
We can get through this together
With love in our hearts
Forever and always
I want to be with you

You make me feel so much
That no other could compare
It's hard to explain
You're the reason I keep smiling
Dreaming about the day
When all will come together
Forever and always
I want to be with you

You make me feel so much
Living in a world of far away
But for the distance
I can see us living free from harm's way
While we hold each other safely
Forever and always
I want to be with you
And never ever
Want to stop loving you

You complete me
In so many ways no other could
filling the cracks in my heart
With blossoms of roses on my cheeks
And a beating heart too quick to beat
This love won't be easy
But we can survive
Dancing in the rain
And finding comfort in our embrace

I love you
Past the moon
Past the stars
To the edge of the universe's reach

With love,
Erian ❤

Please
Erian Rose Dec 2019
When I hear our song
When I walk across town
When I lie awake at night
I think of you

When the girls talk of you in the halls
When the smile blooms from your lips
When the school day ends
I hear you in my head

When I glare at the empty pen and paper
When I sink in the crystalized snow
When I pretend you don't exist
I see our memories form from my eyes

All the pain you caused
Unknown from your heart
While it shattered mine
Every waking day

But you'll never read these poems
About how much I still find myself
Loving you
In this broken heart, you have torn apart
I still smile
Find the light
Because I don't want to let you down.

Hearts in two
Erian Rose Dec 2019
Bloodstained skin
Isn't the answer
For a heart broken in two
One of my friends is thinking of leaving - for good. I don't know what to do. I really care for them but they think life isn't worth it anymore. I need help.

I'll wish for you
Erian Rose Nov 2019
Into the evening dusk
The steady beat of the trumpets ring about
Next time
As I gaze up upon the stars
I'll wish for you
While they hurry down from the sky

Though, I know
You'll never be mine.
An ode to the one who I know will never see me as more than a friend.

Rolling Hills
Erian Rose Nov 2019
Somewhere across the stars,
Racing in the night,
I saw your face as it beamed back at me,
Rolling upon the hills so high.
We'll take flight someday,
As we soar through the fields of butterflies,
A song dancing in the night,
While watching the stardust in your eyes.
Something about the way you smile,
When the mountains tumble by your window.
It's you and me forever
This frosty midnight.

Will be published in late June by the Live Poets Society of NJ

Teenage Satellites
Erian Rose Nov 2019
Somehow, the song always reminds me of us.
As teenagers lost in a sea of stars,
We plummeted so far.  
Crashing through the air.

Our hearts burning in kindle fire.
Waves couldn't ruin the flare.
Abandoned in the frozen twilight,
I would think of you as I gazed above.

When the memories come back,
It's all us and what we make it.
Our dreams of being astronauts,
While sailing a spaceship away from here.
Let's run away, let's go and waste another year
Let's spin apart while racing through the atmosphere
We tumble through the night, we burn so bright
We're teenage satellites
