all i know is that you shouldn't have looked at me like that if you didn't intend to stay....
*a  sequel to "him" the guy i was seeing dumped me out of nowhere. im pretty crushed...

I met a boy with bright blue eyes
He looked at me with a softness I didn’t know I needed
As he softly whispered
Don’t go.
I just started seeing this guy, and he is wonderful, so patient and soft with me.

I refuse to continue writing poems about boys who didn't love me back.
I painted them in beautiful colors
Wrote their names in the stars
And spoke them into eternity.
But they were only fleeting shadows
An untouchable mist
Trying to fill me with empty words
And broken promises.
I will no longer bathe these boys with beauty
They don't deserve my pretty words
And beautiful promises.
I will no longer speak these boys into the brightest stars
And paint them in glorious light.
They are merely shadows
Hiding in a dark alley
Refusing to show their faces
Only shouting empty words into the void
Trying to catch a pretty girl off guard.
Maybe one day a boy will deserve such words.
But for now, I will be saving my beautiful words
For beautiful people.

Tell me about the moment you fell in love.
Tell me how the room grew quiet
How all you could see was her.
Tell me the way you melted at the sight of her.
Tell me how your heart leapt to your throat
The first time she smiled in your direction.
Tell me how even on your darkest days
She is your shining light.
Tell me how you love her
And only her.
Tell me.
And I will tell you how I feel the same way
About you.

-you stole my heart, then fell for someone else

We met in a rainstorm
Our eyes full of rain
And hope.
We scrunched together
Our pace almost matching.
We laughed at the puddles
The thunder
And the lightening.
Their power could not compare
To the storm that was brewing between us.
The rain was cold
But the fire inside our souls
Burned so bright
It kept us warm
And lit the way.
I could have gotten lost
In  your gaze
Your smile
Your laugh.
But instead we walked on.
Trudging through puddles
Our eyes never meeting
Our shoulders barely brushing
But our souls already intertwined.

Open mouths, shut jaws
Trembling hands with strong wrists
Gut wrenching, butterflies dead
Restless nights, early mornings
Love gone, not forgotten
Eyes burning, but tears drying.

I can never seem to form the right words
To tell you how I feel about you
You take my breath away
And my words escape me
To put it simply
My heart aches for you

I can’t explain how I feel about you
But I will spend the rest of my life writing poems to you
If that means you will be mine.
