lips
Al Aug 2014
I used to say your lips were too small.
but now,
after feeling so many,
I realized yours weren't small.
They were a perfect fit,
like a puzzle piece.

pain
Al Sep 2014
It demands to be felt.
It sweeps through your body
like a gut-wrenching feeling.
You know the tidal wave is coming
yet you welcome it.
This needs no added comments.

Freckle
Al Jun 2014
i love the freckle on your eye
maybe
that's why i like to sigh
cause when i do
you look
down at your shoe,
close your eyes,
and ask why?
i say
so you close your eyes
and i can see your little freckle
i love so much
this one *****
but it's for you and your little freckle.
i love you

Done
Al Sep 2014
I'm done with
Feeling sorry for me
I'm done with
Feeling sorry for you
I'm done with
Hanging around all day
And never getting over you
I don't need someone
Who will hold me in place
I need someone
Who will let me go
Do my own thing
But stay by my side
And love me through it.
Kisses!

erupting in me
like they had been in a cage.
maybe they were,
but you released them.
now they're free and
they leap every time
they hear you,
every time they see you,
every time
you are near me.
sorry this one isn't too good. it was a quick write.

when you said you stopped trying, it nearly ripped my heart out. i guess i just always thought you'd be there. i was stupid to think that, and conceited. but i'm glad you're over me, in a twisted and cynical way.
i'm sorry i thought that.

the one
Al Aug 2014
You meet "the one".
they make your stomach flutter
And your heart stop.
You look in their eyes and think
You're the one.
Time goes by,
He's not the one.
You leave.
You meet "the one".
They make your stomach flutter
And your heart stop.
you look in their eyes and think
You're the one.
Time goes by,
He's not the one.
you leave.
You meet "the one"...

head vs. heart
Al Jun 2014
Is it easier
to follow your head or your heart?
Sometimes,
your head makes it easier but
it hurts more.
Your heart, well,
it just wants to be loved,
so it does what all hearts are supposed to do:
love.
So,
is easy worth it?
Or, should you risk it all
and love?
pushing you away is the easiest thing to do and the hardest.

Al Aug 2014
The black waves pushed her head under deep water. You would think she was in the ocean, but she was just deep inside her mind. Lost and lonely, struggling to survive. Until he came and washed away these black waves, replacing them with clear, blue skies and bright sunshine.
You are my sunshine and clear blue skies

Broke
Al Aug 2014
The last string broke today.
You say you're over me and
I say good. It's good for you,
but it's not for me.
I don't want you to be over me but,
I'm glad you are.
You'll find a girl who will
blow your mind and make you
forget I ever was yours.
I find it a privilege
to have my heart
broken
by you.
goodbye. i'm happy for you :)

Words
Al May 2014
Words.
They are what defines us, what gives us emotion.
They can either bring us up,
Or break us down;
Make us feel loved,
Or make us want to die.

You know the saying,
"Sticks and stones,
may break my bones, but words can
Never
hurt me?"

Let's see
How it feels
When I beat you
Down with my fists and then
My words.

Tell me what
You would like better.

Question
Al Aug 2014
People always ask me:
"What do you plan to do?"
"You need a job, something
to do."

But what if I don't want a job,
but instead I wanted
to be, not do.

So I said "I'd like to
be a book, filled with
wonder and words."
"A book?" they ask.

"Yes.
Books are filled with
darkness and light,
wonder and delight."

Books are not only beautiful,
but also helpers.

I've learned most of
what I know
from written words.

Wouldn't it be nice
to be made of
some?

The question isn't "What
do you want to do?"
It's
"What do you want
to be."

Gone
Al Aug 2014
I liked to feel
Yours hands
Not quite on my
waist
but just below my
ribs.
you'd put your hands
there then
pull me forward
Till our chests touched
and we were one.
you'd look into my eyes
And I could see what
you were thinking.
I'd lay my head down
with my right ear
Over your heart so
I could hear it get
Faster
And faster
and faster
Till one day
It stopped.
and I looked up into
Your eyes and
they were gone.
I'm sorry but I had to.

“You need to understand that I’ll never be the girl that begs you to stay. If you decide to walk out of my life, I might be sad for a little while but know that I’ll never chase you. I’ll just let you go.”

Not my write. Just loved it.

Sometimes I read things that break my heart. Even though I'm over you, I still miss you and wish I could call you mine. Maybe that's my head talking, or maybe it's my heart.
New chapters in life are good but what ***** is I miss the old people.

Little Things
Al Jun 2014
When you love someone,
You start to notice these little things about them.
Like the way their eyes crinkle when they laugh,
Or the nervous way they play with their hair.
They slowly become not just little things about them,
But little things you love about them.
Because, when you love someone completely,
Everything about them is beautiful, in their own special way.

You're so stupid if you think I'm happy living like this. I am miserable.

i could kiss you lips,
sometimes i do not.
sometimes i wish
i could keep you all for me, safe in a box.
that's when i realized you don't need me.
sometimes that's what it takes to realize
love can't be shoved into a box.
love is an animal, just like our hearts.
and that's why our ribs are called cages.
i have no idea where this is going. sorry it *****!

here was something addictive about still pretending to be in love with you. It’s like the quotes and sad music started to become a part of me. But, after months of you leaving, I realise I’m not in love with you, I was just in love with the thought of still holding onto you.”
-I don’t know why I romanticised about you leaving me behind. 
(you-were-my-forever)
Again, not from me but it explains so much. (P.s.- Montgomery don't talk about my poems except on here please. It's private.)

I have a secret that no one knows. It kills me everyday. When I read what you say, I wish my secret wasn't true. But it is so, what am I going to do?  When I read what you want, I cry a little every day. My secret is mine to bear, no letter the heart break and the pain I go through, I cannot tell you. If I did, I don't know what I'd say.
I wish I could tell you. I wish I could scream it from the mountaintops.
