A kiss just a kiss until you
   Find the one you love,
A hug is just a hug until
you find the one you're
   always thinking of.

A dream is just a dream
   Until it comes true,

Love was just a word until
   they day I met you.

i’ve been thinking a lot
about your hand in mine
the way that our fingers
and palms intertwine

but i think about death
about loss, about worth
i admit that i fear
to return to the earth

where our bodies dissolve
into roots of a tree
and will grow into trunk
then limb, then leaf

but i've heard from a bird
that death will reverse
and your heart will beat hard
like it did at your birth

so hold on for dear life
with your hand in mine
if death makes us let go
it is only for time

maybe i'll continue convincing myself that equal amounts of
rays & rain = rainbows;
maybe a quarter of this water
equates to tears
(can't tell if they're the clouds'
or mine);
explain to me why two thirds of my mind
is flung halfway across the globe;
maybe friends are discovered
like how you'd find your shadow
(too busy being blinded by the streetlights to look back)

// maybe a fraction of me
refuses to ignore this feeling //
inspired by the song Lose the feeling by Sundara Karma

I wish I savored those moments
where my lips danced upon your skin,
tracing your ever so delicate body,
creating a map I'd follow forever.
I wish I savored those moments
where I could gaze into your mossy eyes,
falling deeper in a trance,
engulfed by the love you give so effortlessly,
knowing that you are the one who holds my heart.
I wish I savored those moments
where your hands caressed my entity,
bringing me reassurance of the good in this world,
giving me the hope I needed to not only survive, but to live.
I wish I savored those moments
where we laid there intertwined,
our body's connected in more ways than one,
feeding off each others energy,
always craving more.
I wish I savored those moments
where "i love you," fell from your lips,
to the "kiss me," that followed,
to the "beg for it," that you enforced,
and to the "in perpetuum," that we said so lovingly in unison.

from now on i know, that any moment with you, is worth savoring.

Autumn's breath
seductively undress trees
their leaves
of beautiful hues
fall upon
the ground frolicking around
I sit quietly in awe
as I witness transition
of Fall into Winter

Dear moon ,
If the sky itself could collapse
And you could fall
I would hold you on my palms
Cause only your daises and twilights define me
The fade knows my darkest secrets
The reflection kisses my wildest dreams
The scintillate stares at my deepest desires
Just look like plaster of Paris
So ***** with footprints
ugly with no color
But still I like you the most
And still love your dark side
Moon is similar to me cause I also have a dark side

I was working in a factory
which made camping stuff;
I was busy in different departments,
when a young student started
(a little bit younger than I was )
on the Monday.

After a week or so
he stopped me and said:
I understand you like
classical music?

Yes, I do, I said, why?

Have you heard any
of Mahler's symphonies?
He said.

No, I haven't heard
his stuff,
I replied.

You want to get
his 7th symphony,
he said,
it's very good.

I'll try and get it,  
I said.

A few days later
he slit his wrists
with one of the knives
they used for cutting twine;
medics came
and took him off.

He never returned.

I bought Mahler's 1st symphony;
I gave the 7th a miss
just in case it had
an infectious kiss.
