Never forget
Ryan Holden Dec 2018
Leap onto my lap and
Greet me with that kiss
After those long sluggish days,
Where my head hits the pillow
And you make me laugh instantly -
Take my smile
Like the thief you are,
And warm my chest with yours
Like you do at night -
Kiss me as you turn
To pillow talk as we wander,
But most of all
We never forget
To say
I love you.
Just a quick free write!
Goodnight guys :D

Final Goodbyes
Ryan Holden Dec 2018
Breaking everything I love,
Letting my insecurities ruin me
In ways I could never describe,
Never to see
Dimming lights
That disappear in the distance,
Over that hill we used to lay
Shining away
Eating at my conscious and heart,
Echoing my regrets as you go.
An acrostic poem I wrote that says “blind to see”. I wrote this on the train a few months back. Enjoy peeps.

I want to call you
That sweet outside,
That tasteful yet
gooey centre,
covered in a hard shell,
Yet you have
The beauty of the night stars,
Sky and all the wonders
It carries with it.
Ryan Holden Dec 2018
You see I’ve noticed,
That when you smile or you laugh,
You look at the floor.

You see I’ve noticed,
That everyone before me
Walked all over you.

But you have noticed,
The only image you see
In reflected eyes,

Is me walking you
Down the aisle, to start the new
Chapter together.
More to follow! 4 Haiku’s making one story.
Enjoy guys :)
Ryan Holden Dec 2018
I went exploring,
To find an ocean too big
And land way too large.

But within it all,
I found a fair few totems,
Them all being you.
It’s been a while! I hope you’re all well.
Thought I’d make a return and I’ll be posting a few poems I’ve been writing the last few months!

Nervously Loving
Ryan Holden Apr 2018
Imagine the feeling
Of slaying a dragon,
But mixed -
With the nerves
Of having to get close,
And face to face
With it,
But then -
At the same time
Loving the dragon.

Tender Lips
Ryan Holden Apr 2018
Lips so tender she feels
Like velvet on fire,
Soft yet hot enough
To remind me she can hurt,
Just enough to remind me
‘Twas her inner core
I fell in love with
In the first place.
Apr 2018 · 278
Ryan Holden Apr 2018
I can’t repaint the start
Nor it’s tenderness
To understand
The complexity
Of it’s cottons -
But know I am soft,
And I will always
Keep your heart

Hidden Love
Ryan Holden Feb 2018
Sometimes the blind
Lead the wide eyed,
Even in darkness
And glimmering light,
Our hearts skip once
For echoes to show -
hiding in shadows
when love starts to grow,
I’ll whisk you up -
The cyclone of love.

Keep Smiling
Ryan Holden Jan 2018
For every little step
a mountain to climb,
an ocean so deep
we are yet
to explore.
In this life I know
that all I can give
is an energy,
that never stops bouncing -
if I can do good
and set an example
for others -
even if I’m a pushover,
I’d rather do it
smiling at the ones
I create
every day
The world is huge, and each of us is a mere dot. So impact who you can around you everyday and make them smile!

Unchosen Destinies
Ryan Holden Jan 2018
It seems that all of the actions
from people,
echo and speak much louder
than words do,
but the only problem is -
It seems to be pretty quiet,
doesn’t it?
In life you make your choices. Nobody makes them for you. Always stay positive - give 100%!
Jan 2018 · 492
Ryan Holden Jan 2018
Open tides aren’t new to the whispering winds of time -
They share the secrets above the surface,
And swap tales and stories about below -
Then wave goodbye in the mist of crossed paths,
Until next time
who will
It’s a poem, but also kind of a small riddle but you should get it. Haha :))
Jan 2018 · 270
Ryan Holden Jan 2018
You are the everything
I could never be
I will never have
I would always hold
I will always love.

Yet I still
of knowing
I lost the everything,
I already had.

I Found A Pearl
Ryan Holden Jan 2018
I know this life can be strange
The simplicity of love,
nor wavering expressions
nor the walls that you put up.

Knowing I'm not alone,
with your warm lifted soul,
a drink of sap from the tree
you've gently nurtured for me.

She has everything to give
in this large, limited world,
I stopped looking for more stones
When I knew, I found a pearl.

Cheetah - Haiku

subtly peeks over grass
With spying brown quartz.

Nervously Speaking
Ryan Holden Jan 2018
When I spoke to you
my eyes would scatter
And lose focus,
So I would avoid contact –
I got used to how
the pavement
Would paint my imagery.

But I nervously fell so steep
With no option to look up –
Only to escape
The pit you had me fall into
In the first place.
I used to look away when I spoke for the fear of falling - and when I did fall I didn't look away again!

Life’s Perspectives
Ryan Holden Jan 2018
In life we wither
slowly as we go
through seasons weathers
nature always grows.

We can contemplate
and we can always worry,
we can’t subjugate
so we suffer covertly.

If we took a seed
to sow, no fear,
even noxious weeds
know reasons it’s here.

As the years start to orbit
and time keeps on ticking,
worry about your wallet
it won’t show in your coffin.

Summers end pinches us
for the seeds we have sown,
disbursement of pods fuss
for the spring, to be grown.

With nothing to lose
with nothing to fear,
if it’s dwelling you choose
whilst you spend your time here.

Nature knows it snows
and nature knows it’s flaws,
still happy it knows
a new seasons open doors.

Only to bloom and admire bliss
whilst they are working hand in hand,
with Mother nature’s glistening kiss,
perhaps one day we will understand.
I just had a thought about how people go through life worrying about everything, and nature is happy knowing it can spread seeds for the next season. Just a perspective! Haha enjoy :)

Natures Planning
Ryan Holden Jan 2018
May our life tangle
Like stems without a thorn -
A beautiful flower
Atop a rose is born.

Whether we germinate
Through the bitter weather,
Flourishing picturesque
Petals fall like feathers.

With Love and Communication
Aligning destinies planets,
Astral stars rotate into place
Wind and air no need to plan it,
Big bang planning
fates open hand,
What a wonderful life,
This universe had planned.
I wanted to compare love with nature. A play on words here also. Gemini (Me) - Libra (Her). Enjoy.

Birth Of An Era
Ryan Holden Jan 2018
We should dream for love
It’s all we can give,
Pure as a white dove
It’s for all to live,
In heaven or earth
We should all forgive,
Imagine from ones birth,
To be taught like this.

Fairytale Dreams
Ryan Holden Jan 2018
Peak at the stars,
Gaze at the moon -
Hide away safe,
Come again soon.

Become my shield,
Knight to his horse -
Fairy-tale dreams,
I will be yours.

Rescued from myths,
Dragon's include -
One true loves kiss,
Hearts are renewed
Just suddenly popped up at work so had to make sure I wrote it down!

Her Skin Already Fits

Becoming this

Please don't change.

Imprinted Sheets
Ryan Holden Jan 2018
The imprint you leave on my bed
is marked for my comfort -
The intangible smell
on my unwashed sheets -
I would wear them like a coat
if it meant I carried your scent,
I would wash them if it meant
I will see you again -
But most of all
I want this imprint to be,
an everlasting dent.

Scars - Haiku x3
Ryan Holden Dec 2017
Even if my scars
Are visible, or they cut too,
You are my ointment.

I want you as mine
I want you as remedy.
I want you for life.

I don't want you to
add more scars, I have ran low
on skin to be cut.

A Poet's Ticker
Ryan Holden Dec 2017
I sit
I write
it's what helps me sleep at night
I think
too much
It's what ruins the best sight.

But if
I thought
of the reasons I struggle
if this
if that
I'm just asking for trouble.

You see
I know
I need to not overthink,
this lady
might leave quicker than I blink.

Life Is Good - Haiku x3
Ryan Holden Dec 2017
Take a big deep breath,
See the sun, see the birds and
Quickly try forget.

Temporary pain
always loses against what you
have truly dreamt for

Stand up tall and proud,
Take each day with a large pinch
Of laughter and love.

Stained Puddles
Ryan Holden Dec 2017
Perhaps one day
the ink that I
Will form into a puddle
for you to jump into,
Only then will you know
Everything I write
is soaked in devotion
for you.
You're the reason I still write.

Dolphin - Haiku
Ryan Holden Nov 2017
Dolphins skip over
The ocean surface catching
wind between wet fins.
Ryan Holden Nov 2017
The pain I paint in
My eyes, you can see I hurt
Before I met you.

You were the canvas
I never displayed when you
Were here from the start

Now I need to wipe
It all away to begin
Our new story.

But then to feature
On my heart, because my wall
Wasn’t large enough.
Nov 2017 · 492
Ointment - Haiku
Ryan Holden Nov 2017
A tender kiss will
Heal the scars on my lips like
You are the ointment.

Take My Heart
Ryan Holden Nov 2017
The clock strikes
Confession time in my ink,
where I lay my arms down
with my veins full for you to see
what runs through them.

I admit my mouth is no river -
But you know that
I can think of a hundred ways
To get you closer -
To let my mouth run snakes
through your mind.

But I could think of
A million ways to make you smile,
And I would always much rather
See you happy -
But I choose to fall into your eyes
rather your arms -
As I can't separate my dreams
From my own reality.

Each day in Autumn I fall,
And each winters snap -
I will be bitten by your wit,
Then as Spring rises like the blooms
In your smile,
I will wake to the most beautiful
Of sun rise.

Her heart with mine -
Because I can't pretend
Or give anymore hints
whilst I lay arms down,
Tell me I'm yours
Because like you
I'm scared
To fall

Bottled Heart - Haiku Poem
Ryan Holden Nov 2017
You bottled your heart
Inside your gut, but then it
Festered and rotted.

Only to catch a
Single drop on my tongue I
Knew you had gone off.

I stopped checking the
Expiry dates, almost like
I grew accustomed.

To knowing I can
Never find a woman, who
Quenches my loves thirst.
