If you were a book,
I'd read you again.

If you were a ride,
I'd wait in line.

If you were my dream,
I'd never awaken.

If you were a star,
I'd never look down.

If you were a flower,
I'd never look up.

If you were mine,
I don't know what I'd do;
But I'd do it.

He trapped me in his arms,
my back against the wall.
Our lips only inches apart,
eyes staring to my soul.

I couldn't say a word,
for it might give me away.
I could feel my breath hitch,
couldn't trust what I would say.

"Do you like me?"
He said, along with a smirk.
I stared at him longingly,
not wanting to say no.

This man in front of me,
is the most dangerous person I know.
He could break me in a second,
and could leave me begging for more.

My knees are about to give in,
as I stare back at the face of the man I love.
I breathed a no,
wanting to take it back.

I hardened my gaze,
and took all my might to push him away.
He's the most dangerous person I know,
but I just couldn't look away.

Crushed love leaves a fading scent
Much like crushed roses

Such is the sweet aroma of sorrow!
if you are too tired to speak
sit next to me
i am fluent in the language of silence

Silence is bliss....My take on a modern haiku!!
No matter how many words I write
I can’t get you out of my head tonight
Or out of my dreams in my bed, alright?
I try to write you away
Yet you stay

You make the sun slowly rise
I see my world in your eyes

He was my entire world
But i was just his friend

priceless diamond drops
the pavement of broken dreams
streaming down my cheeks
sometimes i'm done with life.
overwhelmed by the darkness,
a crushed soul still searching for the light,
but its hard to find at times.

i'm told not to give up,
but that's all i want to do.

i'm so young,
it's such a shame,
but i just wanna be done with this painful life.
your absence is
the loudest thing that
i’ve ever had to
