Who Cares About the "How"?
bk Aug 2019
My heart is moving faster than my head,
It's craziness, but it is so beautiful.
My heart has planned out everything I want to do in my life,
while my head is still trying to figure out how.
But honestly, who cares about the "how"?
As long I know what I want to do in my life
I have 99% of my future planned.

You make me the best me, bring out my joy.
I don't need to try to impress you, I am who I should be.
Was that really the last time I would see you for a year?
****, well I guess I should have hugged you harder.
See you soon...
hopefully, nothing will change.

Last Night's Dream
bk Aug 2019
This morning
I woke up,
looked down at my pillow,
and hoped that my dreams would drip out.

They didn't
and now you are stuck in my dream
that I will never see again.

Different Kinds of Art
bk Jul 2019
She is a beautiful successful model.
I am just a struggling artist.
She is a work of art.
I make works of art.
How come all she has to do is stand there an look pretty?
How come I have to give all of my effort to make something pretty?

The answer is quite simple really:
You can only love others to the extent
of how much you love yourself.

A little tip: Love yourself first, then
go and love others wildly!

The Life of A Wave
bk Jul 2019
It is amazing, the life of a wave.
It takes forever to build up
and then once it finds its way to the beach,
is alive for only a couple seconds.
As beautiful as this sounds,
the act of the surfer is even more.
The wave exists momentarily
but while it does,
the surfer carves smooth silky lines into it
creating a form of art seen only by few.
After that, that single wave is gone forever;
It is not coming back.
The surfer will never surf that same wave again.
The life of the wave now only exists in memory.

Personally, I find nothing more beautiful than that.

Hesitation
bk May 2019
"I love you," he said.
"Yes, I know that," I said, "but are you in love with me?"
He paused for a second.
I didn't need him to say anything else.
In his hesitation, I found my answer.

bk May 2019
He said something stupid but cute again like he normally does.
"I hate you", I said laughing and smiling while I shook my head.
"Wow that hurt", he said playfully while smiling at me.
Silly boy, I thought. He doesn't know what I meant by "I hate you."
In fact, when a girl says "I hate you" while smiling and shaking her head,
you better keep this girl.
She is head over heels for you.

Who Killed Hate?
bk May 2019
Who killed Hate?

She has been with me all my life, but now I cannot find her.
She dwells in my heart, but now she is gone.
She helps me with my actions, but now I work alone.

Hate has never left me before.
Hate has always been there my whole life.
Hate is a part of who I am.

I see Hate in my conversations.
I see Hate in my actions.
I see Hate in my mirror.

She likes to tell me that I should not talk to someone.
She likes to tell me that I will fail at what I am about to try.
She likes to tell me that I will never meet certain expectations.

Where are you Hate?

Have I left you?

I think she is still there,
but I have found such love in him
that I have forgotten what
Hating myself feels like.

Hate, I have moved on.
I have found the key to the ******* you have kept me in.

Craving You
bk May 2019
It's just that my life is so crazy
and when I am with you,
everything I am dealing with
seems to explode into tiny particles.

But now that you have left me,
my life has gone mad again
and I just need you
so that everything could slow down for a second.

I crave the calmness you give my soul.

Is Love a Virus or Disease?
bk Apr 2019
Is love a virus,
spreading throughout the body because of human touch,
needing constant attention to whoever bears it
but then can be healed eventually?

Or is love a disease,
spreading for the same reasons as a virus
and needing constant attention to whoever bears it,
but then destroys them slowly and painfully
leaving a scar?

B.K.
Which one is it? Come on, tell me.

When did you decide that it was fair
to bring two people together
just to tear them apart?

My Last Lover
bk Apr 2019
My last lover left a bitter taste in my mouth.
It is something I cannot quite ignore.
Oh lover, why did you leave me like this?
You have made my lips sore.

My last lover did not know my heart is of paper.
He did not care one bit.
He tore it and now I have a cut.
Man, it hurts like ****.

My last lover let go of my hand.
He let me fall.
He left a void in my palms.
Who am I supposed to call?

My last lover did not treat me right.
But you put me above.
This does not feel like last time.
Wow, could this be love?

You-A Symphony
bk Mar 2019
Your arm around my waist.
My head resting on your chest.
The oceans roaring in front of us.
I closed my eyes and listened.
I can hear your heartbeat and the waves.
Two beautiful sounds.
And I realized how smoothly
they go together.
Your heartbeat and the ocean:
a new symphony.
Making the most beautiful song.

Man, I could listen to this
for the rest of my life

to the person you look for in a crowded room.

Yeah, that's who you love.

How long would it take you to name yourself?

I promise, my love,
that when I go home,
I will tell the stars about you.
They will tremble
when they hear
of how bright you shine.
They will quake
when they are told
of how beautiful you are.
They will be terrified
when they hear
of how your love
heats my heart on cold nights.
And most of all,
they will be jealous
when they hear
that I love you
more than the
whole galaxy.

Homesick
bk Oct 2018
I am homesick.

I miss that golden crisp apple smell. It reminds me of the times we where in the orchard as kids playing a game of hide and seek among the trees.

I ache for the lavender sunsets there. I loved the times where we would run two miles just to make it to the big oak tree in time to climb to the top and watch the milky purple lights.

I dream of the fields of sunflowers every now and then. I was happiest when we ran through them, holding hands, thinking we will forever be this young.

But most of all, I miss you. These memories of home wouldn’t have been the same without you, and I thank you for that.

But now I’m homesick.
I’m homesick of a place i’m not even sure exists anymore.

Silly Girl and the Sword
bk Sep 2018
Silly girl, put that sword down. You can not keep trying to fight your demons, for they are sly and evil. They will deceive you long before you have the chance to take the right path. In fact, they want you to fight them. Do not, I say, do not fight them! They want that sword of yours plunged into their chest. If you let that happen you have lost, my dear, because

you can not **** a monster without becoming one.

the color of my hair,
especially the way it looks

So when you moved away,
I dyed my hair black.
It didn't shine like gold anymore.
In fact,
it looked as if I was going
to our love's funeral.

Rest in piece to our sweet memories
and my golden hair.

to come and save her.
She dreamed all day and night

blinding herself of the fact

in her dusty old basement,
completely forgotten of,
that she could've used to fight the dragon
all this time.
