Courtship
Reimers 2d
Scars well up within, hidden from naked eyes
As foolish as this may seem, It won't stop me
With every defeat, a new and sturdy me arise
Treading down this road comes with a fee

But I'm already jumping into the fray
Prepared to give everything I've got
Dancing along with cupids romantic display
Enacting the role of an Argonaut

Bittersweet
Reimers Aug 22
The scent of coffee engulfs the room
Amidst a table for two
A place where jazz music looms
Reserved for just me and you

Ignorant of the world around me
Distracted by your alluring hue
And that smile in clear view
Adds sweetness to my bitter coffee

Obstacles
Reimers Aug 20
Alone with my thoughts
Eating away my happiness
A trap, I've been caught
There was no struggle, I confess

Succumb to darkness embrace
The shadow whisper to me
One that looks familiar, similar to my face
If I let it inside me, I can no longer flee

It's not easy to abandon my light
For now, I'll calm down and breakthrough
It is the sole reason why I fight
I'll endure all pain, treading the path to you

Where the sun sets
Reimers Aug 6
To climb a mountain
One must prepare for the journey ahead
For the conditions up top cannot be tamed
Many have tried but all have fled

To fail is to progress
Climb again and persevere
The beauty atop, the air to ingest
One must take in the surreal atmosphere

But atop is where we'll truly see
If man's truly worthy
Will he be kind or will he be greedy
To be the caretaker of mother natures beauty

Chin Up
Reimers Jul 27
Things may not always go our way
Its's no one's fault, that's how the world works
We just need to chin up and be okay
Grab a bottle and pop the cork

Sit back and let pain takes its course
We need not be strong at all times
No need to feel any remorse
It'll subside, eventually, we'll feel fine

Routine
Reimers Jul 26
Every single day I try,
To catch her attention
Trying out every ways
Even with this lingering tension

Telling me I'm replaceable
Pushing me to the edge, telling me to quit
But it doesn't mean I'm not able,
To change the outcome, bit by bit

Curious? to why I'm like this
Being annoying and resolute
Simple, within her embrace I feel bliss
While hiding an obvious and cliche truth

That I'm so adamant to conceal,
Whenever I'm with or without her
Wanting to shout it with utmost zeal
That I'm madly in love with her

Knight of the Opera
Reimers Jul 24
Every passing day is a battle
All those days I put up an act
Battles that'll surely test a man's mettle
Whilst keeping thy sanity intact

For I fight not through a battlefield
But on a huge stage alone with her and I
Pushing through, baring no shield
With confidence alone, victory is nigh

Dancing through the ecstatic beat
To waver or to falter is no option
For she is gonna be my greatest feat
A gem in the darkest depths of the ocean

She might be hardheaded
Who's to say I'm not the same
To her sweet embrace, I'm headed
And her heart I shall lay claim
Reimers Jul 13
An auction was held at the gallery
Many from afar had come
He who loved the painting so dearly
Puts on his best suit and brought a large sum

For he dreamed this day to come
Finally, he and the painting can be one
Alas a person came that made him numb
Who commanded power and
money, outbid everyone

Stood there lifeless
Could not comprehend what happened
Nowhere to go, feeling hopeless
His once favorite spot now darkened

Missing is the painting he so loved
That  was taken from him in an instant
For once he never felt loved
And that dream is now very distant

Left the gallery soaked with tears
His heart has died and lost it spark
All alone with a couple of beers
Drunk and left dancing in the dark
Something I experimented along with the other 2 volumes
Reimers Jul 11
Eyes only for it at the start
Claimed to never look away
Ignored and started falling apart
Eyes now set on a new display

Intense feelings were felt from the last
But comfort was provided by the new
Decided to move and forget the past
And embraced the one that understands his hue

Nervous for what he had done
A crime only his heart can tell
For he broke a pledge, saying she was the one
Now his heartaches, like being burned by the fires of hell

Questioned himself If it was wrong
To pursue something that gave him ease
Like dancing to a properly tuned song
The closest to what he can call bliss

Work of Art Vol I
Reimers Jul 11
An ordinary guy nonetheless
Enters a gallery, full of wonders
Sighs can be heard, he was not impressed
About to leave, but heard thunder.

He stayed for the time being
Waiting for the storm to pass
He explored the entire building
And saw a painting, that he cannot bypass

For the painting bewitched him
Granted intense feeling of love and anxiety
He could not move a muscle, and it was on a whim
Staring at it like it was some kind of deity

No matter the occasion, he was there
Looking at the painting, like it was no object
Wishing he could hold it, but could only stare
For he wasn't worthy to have something so perfect.

It's All About You
Reimers Jul 10
You, yes you!
And your smile
Your laugh
Yes all of those

Gives me energy and hope
Fills my world with glee
No sadness nor pain  I can't cope
Gives off strength as vast as the blue sea

In simpler terms
I like you, yes I do
I wouldn't even be writing this if I didn't
Aside from the normal poem

This one is special
You are special
Wait..I'm in love
With whom? With you

Hope
Reimers Jul 8
I was once left alone with pain
Cried for help, but to no avail
Maybe because I was too mundane.
No one special, just an ordinary gale

Never been  look at twice
Ordinary like a grain of rice
Forgotten like a sunken ship
Wishing that this life of mine, I can skip.

As I fall in my self created abyss
Something peeked through
A small light that felt like bliss
At that moment, something inside me started to brew.

My heart resonates with the light
Thawing its prison of ice
Releasing me from its plight
Once again, I can experience paradise

Unexpected Visitor
Reimers Jul 2
Feelings that were once lost
Knocking again at my door
Indeed a risk I crossed
But missing an opportunity, I abhor

Felt like I was in cloud nine
Not caring about anything
But the moment I blinked appeared a vine
That pulled me away from everything

Darkness everywhere nothing I see
The place reeks of despair and pain
The farther I was pulled the more it desecrates me
It never stopped, my sanity slain

Be Real
Reimers Jul 1
Take care of your smile
You're always frowning
It's been a while
Notice it is raining

You looked up to the sky
It is bright and clear
Did not notice the streaming tears
On your face, you wonder why?

Stop Harboring all the pain
Lean on me and Let it all out
Free yourself from your chains
Don't stop, Don't doubt

Leave the past behind
Cast aside all the pain
Never again be confined
Happiness you shall obtain

Limbo
Reimers Jul 1
Why is that I'm still here
Trapped in a room, with your pictures on the wall.
That whenever I go near, it disappears
And If I do get to touch it, I fall

Why is that with every fall, I end up back here.
Repeating the same scenario over and over
Getting back up, fall, then shed tears.
The more I fall, the room gets colder

Why can I not stop and give up
Abandon you and start living
With every fall my sanity blows up
But my heart insists on beating

For you and none other
Even if it starts to bleed
I will never falter
I will never concede

"Love's Cacophony"
Reimers Jun 30
Waiting, amidst the usual crowd
To get noticed by someone I admire
Yet hidden within this friendship cloud
That keeps telling me I should retire

Love plays *****, it has ensnared my heart
No longer can I break free from this trance
My mind and body are being torn apart
Dancing through the beat of romance

I've sought ways to break free
Knowing my heart, I dare not
For it is a sin to myself if I flee
A tragedy to myself I've brought

Staying would lead to agony
My heart beats go unnoticed
Deafened by love's cacophony
Excruciatingly patient to get noticed

— The End —
