I can feel the pain
I haven't felt in a while,
the tears I have yet to shed,
and the aches that don't hurt my heart.
Why is it I feel everything I have not?
The last ever roar
Of the mighty lion fades;
The vultures gather.
I stopped looking
for my other half
in other people
the moment I realized
I was already whole
within myself.
I find no shame
in my solitude
now that alone
I do not feel lonely.
You are the perfect definition of beauty
Your eyes hold the entire universe in them
Your hands contain a world of kindness
Your smile is just contagious

Every detail breathtaking
God took his time creating you

When I lay eyes on you
I lose track of time
I get lost in the ecstasy of your beauty

From the way your lips curve up in a smile
to your electrifying fragrance  
Everything drives me crazy
I have lost control
I can only go deeper
drowning in you
when all the words have been taken
and all the thoughts given away
that is when you'll hear me saying
i will kindly be on my way

when there is no more ink worth dipping
with paper parched in yellow dust
when all ideas end up missing
when the feeling i once had is lost

that's when i'll pack what little i have left
and say goodbye to all i know
what good is poetry to me if i can't seem
to compose another poem
you are not a narcissist
if you love yourself                                      
so take care of you                                      
and breath deeply
Take care of yourselves out there, it's okay. Someone is always out there for you and life gets better.
"I liked your smile better
When you were younger,"
She said
I was tempted to ask why
But we both knew.
It's harder to smile now.
Genuine like a child
Candid like an open book
Exotic like The Wild
Reassuring like a second look
My baby
