Facade

How he tells her he loves her
Yet lies with another
Sad, sad lover
I see right through that cover

BROKEN

Looking for the right fix
Looking for the right fit

I am a single bird
flying alone
yet somehow
my heart is
full

Intuition
Viany Oct 2017
My mother always says, a woman's intuition makes a man feel uncomfortable. For he knows that deep down, she knows everything without asking to know. She just knows. It flows like the river in her heart, it flies around like butterflies in her gut, it runs miles in her mind...it's always there. Now some women suppress that intuition for the case of not letting go of love...scared of the unknown after what they thought was love is lost..as we know, love is blind at times. But I encourage you ladies, do not neglect that intuition. For the more you listen to it, the stronger it gets. If you openly accept it, it'll be your safety net, your protection, your armor against deeper pain. Listen to your intuition...for it is a gift from God.

Moon
Viany Nov 2017
I envy the arrival of the moon... for when the moon makes its appearance, darkness forms and silence grows. When the moon makes its appearance, my mind is restless

Alarm
Viany Dec 2017
I remember when you used to wake me up in the morning with a kiss & a melody of your sound whispering in my ear telling me "good morning" the world was still..for I fixed my energy unto you...now that you're no longer in my presence, nature wakes me, the wind kisses me..the birds whisper sweet melodies in my ear...I should be saddened by this substitution but there's beauty all around me even when you're gone

*Sigh
Viany Oct 2017
Here you are,
telling me you love me in my dreams again
             making me feel like it's reality..

Poison
Viany Nov 2019
I tasted you anyway
They tried to regurgitate
Your love out of me
It’s too late...I feel you in my vein

Green
Viany Aug 2017
There’s a jungle growing
inside of me and each
leaf trembles with melody
You are the prettiest face
that has ever carved
a smile for me
When our eyes meet
I earthquake
I’m adamant that all rivers
are silent eulogies carrying
our secrets deep within earth
my veins are small rivers
you, are the sea
I vow to always remember
your face the way the ocean
recalls the moon
Darling, I am possessed by
your nature

Day&Night
Viany Aug 2017
Notice how in the daytime we're too busy seeing & appearing with no fear of what's there or near...
In the nighttime, we calm ourselves to feel, seek, & hear..the sounds that are so
clear & near...

Everytime I share my words with you, I'm looking for ways to confess without pointing the finger back to me...

Open House
Viany Oct 2017
Opening your heart to someone new,
is like inviting them to an open house viewing...

here's my space..
here's where you may lay your head
when trouble or rest consumes you..

give me a call when you're
interested in moving in

I admire you like art,
dark skin smooth as silk

You were floating

Advice
Viany Aug 2017
You my friend are not a cemetery
thus, stop opening your arms
to those who are only
looking for a place to
rest their weary bones
love yourself—
it is the only way
we could ever
become
lovers

Selfless Love
Viany Sep 2017
Even though
you're the cause
of my pain,
I wiped your tears
and said it’s okay..

Foreigner
Viany Nov 2017
I am a foreign woman
Expressing myself to you
In a foreign language
These words are your words,
Yet somehow reside in me

Growth
Viany Nov 2017
Isn't it crazy how through pain, we learn our deepest lessons? We learn ourselves...Yes we create water through our eyes...yet we use that to quench our own roots. We blossom to such beautiful distinct flowers

Warning

Don't fall like the leaves for a poet
They'll carve out words of you
On many trees for the rest of eternity

Empty promises..
Yet full of deception

Always making permanent decisions for the ones that were meant to evaporate..

Lust in Love
Viany Aug 2017
How convenient for him to tell you he's falling for you only when he's falling in you...sadly you open up & take it all in
208 · Sep 2017

Fly out of her
Broken Heart..

Strangers Collide
Viany Nov 2017
I wish I met him at a more
"Traditional" place other than
The place we met...a room
Full of bodies either
Searching for lust,
Or searching for a distraction
In toxic water, or a toxic soul
Some even move to the rhythm
Of the beat for joy & laughter...
Others move to the rhythm of the
Beat to forget yesterday's sounds
As for me, I'm not sure why I was there,
But I certainly wasn't there to forget
The face I came across so unexpectedly
Serendipity as one might call it if you may
Beauty is what he called me
Drunk is what I called him
I closed myself off..so whys there a
Window peaking his light in?
...Drunk is what I called him
Yet his name is what I whispered
To myself on my drive home..

Tragic Comedy
Viany Sep 2017
He copes with his pain
By making fun of the hurt...
Our laughter heals his wounds..

Empty Promises
Viany Nov 2017
His empty promises
make me drink
this full glass of regrets..
202 · Nov 2017
I knew..
Viany Nov 2017
Deep down I knew that I should've remained in my box,
completely guarded...
For these men are like vultures,
yet display themselves as doves

Taste
Viany Aug 2017
I wanted a taste of the foreign land
Heard it has more flavor
I wanted to dip my finger
In its sweet mystery
& let the smell linger
Like the hotness of your tea

New Season
Viany Mar 2018
I smell spring around the corner...but here you are with your winter chillls that leaves me numb..I’m so tired of feeling nothing..when all I crave is warmth. When’s my next season of love?
200 · Aug 2017
Hmmm...
Viany Aug 2017
I hope you love her & not the idea...of...her

Unfamiliar with Love
Viany Aug 2017
Why aren't you mean to me?
Why do you respond right away?
Why do you care so deeply?
Why do you beg me to stay?

Do not give me empty promises...
Fill up the space with your actions

Au Contraire
Viany Oct 2017
He told me all the reasons he could not love me..
The heartbreak from his past,
the distance, and so forth
He said I'm just insecure
No...my love, you're just a coward
189 · Oct 2017
WORST
Viany Oct 2017
The worst kind of love is one that's not reciprocated...
How do you feel such fire for someone,
Yet they feel no warmth?
187 · Aug 2017
Silly Me
Viany Aug 2017
I went on a date
& confused a lesson for a soulmate
186 · Oct 2017
He Said...
Viany Oct 2017
You are my rib...
therefore causing
you to fracture,
is not an option..
tightly confined
in me..
you help me breathe

Heavens
Viany Aug 2017
God has been crying a lot lately...
I feel his sorrow pour down on me
182 · Aug 2017
She asks...
Viany Aug 2017
Why play with my hair,
when you can run your fingers through the knots of my soul instead?

6:00AM
Viany Aug 2017
After our fight he came in the room and sat on the edge of the bed next to me. We sat in silence reflecting on the words we spewed at one another. Silence. He chuckled. I whispered "what?" He says, "do you hear that? Even the birds know how to communicate better than us" I smiled

Bloom
Viany Aug 2017
How flowers
Grow from the soil
They break from the earth
Before they bloom

My body is no different,
There, grows a heart where it aches
See this garden of roses
Pushing thorns
Through my bones

Darling, this is not a poem
This is a wound blooming
