It was less than an inch distance
Touching shoulders
Breathing heavier after each second passes
And as we go up
Someone had to touch the other
But we won't look at each other's eyes
So I held tighter
"Sky's the limit," you said
On which I didn't bother to answer
If sky really was the limit
Why do I feel we had the entire universe to roam around with
The stars to count when we got tired of chasing every sunrise
Why do I feel like the Father has assigned the earth to push me always towards your side
Aligned all planets just not to interfere
The space He gave
I believe the best way I could fill out
Like an orbit
I long to be around you
Axl Rose Aug 2018
A Beautiful Voice came rescuing my soft sobs
It didn't tell me to stop
Instead, It said "go on"
When I've come crashing like pieces of stones
Ruined by steps and huge machines
I am the last piece of stone residue
Threw myself at the waters
Hoping it would take me away far from here
But with Its most Beautiful tone,
"This last part of you is still a part of you
And I'd collect all others
That's been lost
When and where you've crashed
In the deepest of the lands
Through every tunnel,
And under the dark bridges."
After a while
This Beautiful Voice came back to the waters
Bringing all the cracked stones which were once part of me
I didn't get them
Instead, showed It what's left of me
And said how It came again with the most proper timing
Through the lowest and highest of tides
For although the Voice offered to make me whole
I was assured whatever's left of me
Has been completed the moment It came back to where I was lost
How ironic
The stone was Hit with a Voice
That couldn't even make a single hint of Touch
Axl Rose Jul 2014
I think I'm crazy
I might be
Am I going to be?
'Cause you're not here with me
Where are you anyway?
Are you okay?
Well, I hope you're doing perfectly well
I'm fine, since you didn't ask
Wait, you did not ask
What did I say I was?
Oh I was lying
But would you know I was?
It might be that this time I am
Lying
Or it was earlier that I was
Lying
But then again
How would you know about me
Lying
Oh, don't mind me
I have told you
I'm crazy
I might be already
I have gone, just maybe
Axl Rose Mar 2016
A lover once told me that I wasn't enough
That it wasn't me but my loving
My calls were few
The number of hours we spent together were limited
And the way I said "I love you" didn't convince him I do
A lover once told me I should try harder
So I tried calling as often as possible
Whenever I'm free, even when I'm not
I spent quite an amount
I made sure to see him whenever I could
Prepared, and always bring the most genuine smile I could possible produce
I've told him I love him
Through poems, love letters, and sticky notes
"I love you, Honey. Try not to forget."
A lover once told me I was enough already
I considered my trying to be the assurance of our possible everything
A lover once told him to try harder
His calls were few
The number of hours he spent with me were limited
And the way he says "I love you" didn't convince me he does
**But he didn't try harder
Axl Rose Oct 2014
A quick glance
And stutter
Genuine smiles
And your scent
Keep brushing my hair
'Cause it's the little things
That matter
Axl Rose May 2015
In dark places
Small pieces
You've already been burned
But still the ashes return
Axl Rose Aug 2018
As I put milk in my breakfast cereal I think of you
The A's, the Y's, the R's, and the U's
A..re
Y..ou
R..eady
[for]
U..s
I have put in too much milk
These Cereal Letters suddenly melt to smaller pieces
Can't recognize each anymore
C? See
U? You
S? Soon
The next time I pour milk to the letters of your name,
I'll make sure to put in just the right amount
Because too much of what I can give can make you unrecognizable, drowned
When I give too much water to the sea it swims away from me
Axl Rose Feb 2015
In a world full of pretension
Secrecy and bad intention
The most fulfilling
Is to have finally found yourself
Somewhere
Within a person
When words don't crumble
Where sentences never stumble
We'll be the loudest click
Most fascinating wit
Slowest kiss
And hardest fall
Axl Rose Sep 2014
I have always loved the idea of something new, words that rhyme and an effortless wit. How hard the pounding of every syllable, the way you stress and breathe whenever you pause. I like looking at you, for I could almost confess I see through you. In some ways I do. You shine with your gestures. Insanity comes before and after you speak and just about every time. I am looking into your eyes, as they glow against the sun that shines a little less today than you do. Behind the dark clouds are your hands that caught some of the stars. You gave two of them to me and said I could keep them. I asked for another. Because most people tend to give their loved ones three of things. Signifying those famous three words that could somehow give you the world you need or the world you wish you have. I was a little disappointed and thought, "These are only 'I love'. Where's 'you'?" You smiled at me. And at that very moment, I knew exactly where my third star is.
Axl Rose May 2015
Wrapped in dirt
Taped with guilt
From bruises
To kisses
A convention
Of affections
A sensation
From emotions
An indifference
From inferences
Measure the distance
An inch between us
Axl Rose Oct 2014
Misleading actions
Immediate reactions
Bluff, honey
I need your money
For every white lie
I could almost buy
Everything I set my eyes into
Of what you have gone through
Just to make me feel okay
When all you really did
Was to make me feel astray
Axl Rose Jul 21
Tableau is set with two women in their 20s
One, short haired, glasses, eyes that see through you, soft hands, sharp teeth, gentle lips
Second? You can ask One
Not facing each other
Setting in an open space
Day and night
Spotlights circling the two
One, holding a college diploma
With long list of goals, dreams and to-do's
Second just finished an interview
Wearing a uniform that sends you to the Corporate World
It was on the First Scene when Second asked, "How do you see yourself in five years?"
Even though she knew
She has read One's list after all
She knew the bullets, the edges
Those words in bold, underlined being priorities
Some marked X
Others erased, but still there
Words Unsure, words Unknown
"Not here, not on this stage", replied One
Turned their backs, leave the stage
Lights off
There was no applause
The audience was confused
Ushers suggested that they leave the theater
There's no Scene Two
Axl Rose Mar 2016
Sipped my morning coffee
Only to recognize your scent
The smoke which reached my head
Leaves a question
"Why are you still cold?"
Cause the warmth after today's raining
Could only result from your embrace
Axl Rose Oct 2014
Curtains closed
Reality check
Monthly exams
Appointments
Are you ready
To get over with
All the unnecessary
To finally start something
That will make your life
More meaningful
Instead of just waiting
For something to fall
Climb up there
'Cause in order to get there
You need to move somewhere
Axl Rose Jul 2014
The fight
I knew
Because of sight

I fly
Towards you

To help you
And be with you

We win some
We lose some
But my love for you
Is greater than any sum
Determination UnconditionalLove Love Family Success
Axl Rose Mar 2016
I was so ******
I got annoyed to almost anything thereafter
No matter how shallow
I wanted to break glasses, cassettes, and the colored pens I just bought
I wanted to break ties
I wanted a wider distance
Farthest, in an instant
The one you can no longer reach
With your hands
With your eyes
With your breath
I wanted to do all sorts of bad ideas
Wishing to form at least something good
But then I had all these forgotten
The pieces went from pair to a dozen
After all I have gone through
I realized I just needed to see you
Axl Rose May 2015
I'd want you to love me
Like your personalized doll
Dress me
Put me to sleep
Push me
DO SOMETHING
In order for me to do the same
I'd want you to be always here with me
You have probably noticed I can't do a single thing without you
You have built me a home
You have provided me with everything I needed
But love
Because loving me means not being your personalized doll
Loving me is letting me do whatever the hell I'd want to
And I'd rather be someone you don't love
Than to live in some place in your heart
And the ticket of entrance is only being able to do what you want
Axl Rose Oct 2014
In life, you meet so many people. Go to a variety of places. Drink wine. Eat a lot of good food. You prefer to do a lot. You love. You learn. You sin. You forgive. You forget. Time doesn't wait for a bus ride or a stop sign. There were always a lot times when you feel like doing all at the same time.

Meet people. Go to variety of places, drink wine and eat a lot of good food with them. You learn to love. Each gets to sin. You forgive but won't feel like forgetting. You do these things altogether. Somehow wishing that after all that has been done, new things come after.

You get tired. You get bored. You get lonely.

You'd want something new.
Escape from the cycle.
Run.

You get a lot of things you don't want.
And those you want, you don't get.
Axl Rose Jul 2014
There was a time in my life
I was assured of my expectancy
It was because he said to me
"I would promise", "I promise"
I believed so 'cause he did promise
But that's how past tense works right
He promised
What are promises anyway?
Is it about how do we go constantly fulfilling them?
But there would come a time when you can no longer hold
A time when a promise would mean a lie full of hopes
Is it still okay to hold on to that promise?
But then how would it be a promise if you are no longer in any capability of granting it?
What's it called then?
Deceit?
Myth?
Or a failure of such pledge?
When does a machine run out of energy?
When do birds usually stay on their nests?
Why are there nights when we could have just days?
Even God made a rest day within the busy week
So when do people end something and mark a point?
Is it when they have had enough
Or they didn't have the enough?
Axl Rose May 2015
I have come to the point where the line stops drawing itself further
It has come to where I am in need to decide for myself
But my point doesn't mean an ending
When I've created a line that also starts with one
Axl Rose Oct 2016
Careful, we are surrounded with whispers
And that you might have heard wrongly
Whose fault, then
When you can't even fish others for proof
Cause it's only meant for two
Axl Rose Sep 2014
Stood so tall
Teeth so bright
How could you make me feel so right?
With just one look
That's all it took
For me to risk the pain
If you could make me love again
Axl Rose Nov 2014
Your name
Sends signal
To my veins
Wandering
Wondering
Is this the spot
Where I reached your heart?
Axl Rose Dec 2015
An open letter, an amiss, my biggest wish
Late night calls, obvious hints, good morning texts
After such long list, exceptions, and dates

Is there really a need for selection
Don't I deserve your full attention
To become the only reason of your affection

For I'd never fight to be the best out of your possible options
To be the strongest opponent just for your own satisfaction
When there has been only one name you'd always choose to mention
Axl Rose Oct 2016
I've been finding ways to catch your smile
So genuine
It'd make your eyes look like a fine line
Too wide
Showing your teeth all at once
I've been finding ways to catch your smile
Maybe I should look more often
But you're the type to hide them
Then I realized all I needed to do
Was to make you
Axl Rose Jul 2014
Why do people consider it as an "effort" when you express your emotions into words by having to translate them using pen and paper?
It took the same effort to think about it,
Same way you raise your left eyebrow,
Bite your lower lip,
Scratch your head
And just plain thinking.
But I'd always prefer it
Postcards, letters, sticky notes, stamps and stationaries.
In that way, I'll discover so many things.
Your choices.
I could imagine how you made them.
How much you put into picking the most striking marker,
The smoothest paper
To give me a sign
A single hint of how much the fragrance of the paper,
The strokes of every letter formed,
The mistakes you put a cover on already
In order to find the perfect words to match with each.
All these, to show me not just what you feel
But also of what you are made of.
The boldness in you,
The things you rather hide
And some you wouldn't want to forget
That remind you of so many things
Even the little ones
So you sealed them, put colorful stamps and send it to your second home which you have found in me.
Axl Rose Jul 2014
I can't keep something I don't have
I can't like someone I won't have
So there's really nothing that we have
In order to fight to have
Each other's halves
Axl Rose Dec 2014
We utter "I miss you" more often now
One way
Of keeping our memories alive
In our hearts
That our absence
Could mean presence
No eye to eye contacts
Unable to hold hands
And exert a whisper
But I could hear how your heart beats
Just a little louder today
When you're 10 000 miles away
Axl Rose Mar 2016
We juggle the words and let them stumble
Only to miss out the truth
The worst thing I fear the most
Is how much we misuse our words
When Yes means No,
None means Full,
And Him means You
_
Axl Rose Mar 2016
I hate the oceans,
Every bridge,
And busy streets
The irony, of what could bring us closer
Keeps us apart
_
Axl Rose Mar 2016
When do words become enough
When I've never said a word
When I don't say I do
It doesn't mean I don't
Axl Rose Mar 2016
I knew your way home
I knew how big should the steps be, the number of challenging roads to pass through, and a lot more traffic lights
New lands, cotton candy clouds, and the scent of branded air
I knew your way home
At the same rate I knew why you left
So even with all things I know how
I won't
For the sole reason I knew
When I could drink wine with you,
Whisper how I see stars whenever I look in your eyes,
And how much your touch could keep me warm all night
I knew your way home
But you've already set up a barricade,
Closed all roads,
And sent hints like guarded gates in front of you
So even when I knew your way home
When the traffic light hints Go
I'll change directions,
Away from the intersections
To all possible places of your destination
Axl Rose Jul 2014
I would be pursuing a different career

I would travel the world
Wherever
Whenever

I would kiss my money goodbye
To buy all things
If I wanted them
I'll get them

I would be eating meals
Take naps
Shower
In hotel rooms

-

I breathe fresh air
I don't commute

-

I'll drink wine every night

-

Sleep on the comfort of my bed
Plan what to do tomorrow
But I would not be who I am today
Inspiration: Marriage and Family lecture
Axl Rose May 2015
Rough skin
Too thin
Chapped lips
Broad hips
They look, but don't see
Your scar still bleeds for me
Axl Rose Aug 2014
A day like this
I'd definitely miss
How we both laughed at the same jokes
Over and over until someone chokes
Some days I had to pretend
Those I have still to mend
But this is yet temporary
We all search for a journey
You might not be here today
But I know we'll cross to that intersection someday
So I'll see you
And when we do
I won't tell you I missed you
Cause everyday, I always do
Axl Rose Sep 2018
As I move towards the sea
I hear the loud crashing
The waves coming
Inches from my feet, three
Strong winds
Lightning flashes
Bad news
Evacuate immediately
First step,
"You can't even swim."
Second,
"You're afraid of the waters."
Third,
"Local TV's on but the lifeguard's out."
Last,
"Nobody's gonna save you from drowning."
Axl Rose Jul 2014
I knew you have someone else
So having feelings for you doesn't make sense
I tried to hide
But every time, we happen to collide
You were always there
And always cared
In the end,
I was about to bend
So before I break
I started to shake
All my feelings away
But you wanted to stay
You didn't know
What I feel
You will never know
How much it kills
Axl Rose Aug 2014
Even more when you lack so many things
Those you badly need in order to live
As easy as possible
Some need to fight
But in my case
I just don't need to fight harder
I need to win
Axl Rose Jul 2014
I didn’t know how we were so
In love that I didn’t know how
We were so reckless and selfless
I had no idea how to love you any less

You made me feel so blissful
Didn’t notice how rainbow could be so colorful
We were always happy together
I was so sure we would be able to get anywhere

With our love so strong
Feels like nothing was ever wrong
You gave me sunshine during nights
Then a moon that ever shines so bright

But you didn’t give me that same light during days
When I can see all clearly
The way you blink and every other thing of your detail
And so I’ve read that this is all going to end, just like those fairy tales

You were my shining armor
You were my happy ever after
The one who’d find me with the lost shoe
Who’d still consider me the fairest of them all

But you were also the one who hurt me
The person who’d spill all my secrets
The villain I’d forever regret having
The person who knows exactly what was about me worth destroying

So I guess if this means we need an ending like all those tales do
I’d make it sure I’m the one who’s choosing
So I had to close the book
‘Cause I finally realized how fiction looks
Axl Rose May 2015
How far is too far?
They say numbers don’t lie
But so do our feelings
How does someone know it’s something you can’t pull off?
You can’t reach, you can’t hold, you can’t keep
“He wouldn’t hear you from here.”
I didn’t know love has to have hands
I didn’t know love has to hear, has to see
When I saw you, I didn’t remember how far was the distance between us    
Between our love
But know you don’t have to be here
To take my hand
To brush off my hair
To kiss me on my right cheek
To be able to feel your love
You stay where you are
And I’ll be where I am
And we’ll love each other
Against the light and its shadows
Beyond the highest mountain and longest bridge
I’ll love you more for not being near
Because that’s when you needed it the most
Axl Rose May 2015
There's nothing you'll get
Not wanting to forget
Axl Rose Jul 2014
I am here
Again
There are things
I would want to miss
And not encounter
But there might be those
I would miss
When I don't encounter
So I'm not going to miss one
So I would miss none
Misses Miss
Axl Rose Jul 2014
"Move on", they said
So I took a step
"Learn from it."
So I never stopped studying even a bit.

But I didn't know which book to read
Who was I to plead?
Who would give me answers
When I'm the only person who's after

From who we were used to be
I have always wanted to see
The way we were before
On that distant blue shore

When you first told me you love me
It was like those waves hit me
Hard
It was an invitation card

To your heart
Sent personally
You were so lovely
With those eyes

That once cried from my lies
I have always been so sorry
For everything and told you not to worry
"You were the only person I wanted."

But it still took me to find another
I was confused
And I made you feel used
You decided to end our relationship being together

Because it wasn't just only about love for each other
Trust and loyalty
We lost each other that instant
When it took me years to have you when you were so distant
NOW
Axl Rose Mar 2015
NOW
I'd want to be where you are right now. Maybe initiate a conversation that could go on for hours then go back home relieved that I did. I'll keep the glances I stole, your name on my chest and the promise to meet again. I'll write to you, everyday. I'll tell you how my day went and how far it was from the day I expected it to be. How different were the days when I was with you compared to those I wasn't. I'll also ask you how did your day go. Did you like your breakfast, and if you are still the same person I've known ever since the day I laid my eyes on you. All these, and many more. Everything that you are a part of, I'll always keep with me. Inside my pockets, locked in my chest and sealed in my heart.
Axl Rose Jan 2015
You're looking at hundreds of photos every day. A lot of apps and sites could immediately get a response from a single photo. Positive, negative and maybe just right at the middle, when you didn't just care. Emotions trigger as fast as bullets shoot. Bang! You'll love me. Bang! You envy me. Banged, bang and banging. I know for a fact beauty is subjective and we could spend billions of years trying to defend what really is beautiful. I am also a victim of the norm, what's the trend and am surrounded by people who tell you which is considered to be proper. But the human soul could only bring you one reason to finally disclose the meaning of genuine beauty, love. The good, the nonjudgmental, the acceptance, and the truth. It's in the human soul that you should see through the real beauty of a person. Not because someone wears your favorite brand of clothing, same type of bands, or a 'like' in Facebook. It's rather a bonus, than the entire package itself. "You are more what meets the eye." A shout to my co-victims, we know how tangible things are rather temporary. So I'll probably never really believe in love at first sight until I hear what you have to say.
Axl Rose Mar 2015
It was one night during summer. Everyone was planning to go on vacation but us. They were asking why we wouldn't want to join them. We looked at each other, shrugged our shoulders, and laughed because we did it at exactly the same time after three. From that moment we knew, how our glances could mean a thousand words, my right hand on your left shoulder meant carrying each other’s baggage, and our presence means never leaving. We always knew what each wanted but our indifference never hindered. We didn’t look literally at the window but its beauty when opened. We saw each other through thick walls, climbed the tallest mountain and swam countless seas. We could not have done all these without accomplishing each, together.
Axl Rose Jul 2014
How long could it get
Before it breaks
The finish line
Tell yourself
"Walk
But don't run."
Axl Rose Oct 2014
All the feelings
I have been
Feeling
For you
I need to keep going
'Cause it's more difficult
When I'm the only person
Who's pushing
Axl Rose Jul 2014
From the corner of my eye
I have seen how you walked this road
Courage and your undying passion
Right under my nose
I have smelled your fragrance
Like a flower, bloomed graciously from its seed
An open ear
That I have heard your soft but intimidating voice
The way your lips meet and part ways
It's like an unending cycle
That I would always encounter
And wonder
How these lips would meet those
When all of my senses have grown fond of you
But I might never even touch you
Axl Rose Dec 2014
I tried my best
to draw every detail of you
eyes
nose
lips
but every time I tried drawing your eyes
I'd rather stare at them
I can't take mine off yours
When it was about your nose
I recognized more of your scent
than its shape, size and holes
Your lips, I could draw
Only when leaning mine
