abandon reason
icarus Jan 1

what is love but the act
of complete surrender
to hand oneself
over so willingly
in the most beautiful
and purest form of faith
to abandon reason
to trust in madness
within that uncertainty
dwells true happiness

moonlight sonata
icarus Dec 2019

every single night she meets me in secret
under darkened sky she gazes down
we talk about how lonely we are;
me, among seven billion people
and her amongst the infinite universe

blinded by grace
icarus Dec 2019

her beauty is overwhelming
like watching the most perfect
thunder and lighting storm
she demands my attention
and i cannot help
but gaze in sheer wonder

sing me to sleep
icarus Dec 2019

and so i had fallen
in love with her
just as one falls asleep
without knowing
gently, effortlessly
and all at once

the hands of time
icarus Dec 2019

timeless she stood
bathing in the moonlight
the hands of time
long forgotten their duty
her eyes locked with mine
in a wondrous dance
through the stars
her light shinning brighter
than ten thousand suns
she was all i could see
even without looking

there is nothing more tragic
than the souls falling in love
simply at the wrong time

our love
icarus Dec 2019

i am terrified to lose
a love so sacred
we hid it from the world
a love so mysterious
we hid it from ourselves

Dec 2019 · 312
icarus Dec 2019

the hardest part
was admitting;
not that i had
loved you once
and it was lost
but that i had
loved you once
and never stopped

sonata of sadness
icarus Dec 2019

this bed is cold
and lonely without you
in darkness i lay still, silent
the little space beside my shoulder
that you made your own
now empty, forgotten
counting cracks on the ceiling
terrified that you’ll forget me
i sink my teeth into the pillow
screaming to the god
i don’t believe in
a symphony of pain
pouring from my lungs
a sonata of sadness
rains from my eyes
drowning in myself
pleading to the universe
to bring you back to me
even as a shadow on the wall
or a memory in a dream

beyond measure
icarus Dec 2019

if my mind
was the universe
thoughts of you
would be the
stars that fill it
beyond measure

bathed by moonlight
icarus Dec 2019
i remember it all
moonlight pouring
through the window
spilling onto the bed
her eyes burning
as she lit up the night
a velvet touch
on satin skin
each flash of white
like a billion stars
for my eyes only
her soul displayed
her heart unfolding
that night she gave
me the universe
and i painted her the heavens
~ the way you looked that night still haunts me

to love her
icarus Dec 2019
to allow her to love you
with a love that endures
first trust in her heart
and trust her with yours
pave way for her dreams
sit not on her throne
carry all of her fears
as if they are your own
allow her to grow
to question desire
nurse all of her embers
til she burns like wildfire
touch not her body
until you awaken her mind
she will give you her soul
and all of her time

velvet skin
icarus Dec 2019
a burning love
by darkened night
her velvet skin
was set alight
in sweat and blood
a primal lust
an ancient love
made just for us
our bodies bound
by space and time
my heart you held
no longer mine
Dec 2019 · 74
heavens opened
icarus Dec 2019

the heavens opened
lightning crashing
though blackness
rain pouring, torrent
thunder echoed eternal
the sky crying out in anger
the universe in mourning
at the parting of our love

your ghost
icarus Dec 2019

the ink filled pages of your mind
still longing to be read
the song our hearts once sung together
still stuck in my head
now these nights just get harder
as two souls long to become one
like the moon i wait patient
for morning to come
in the darkness my body craves it
the gentle lullaby you moan
the electricity from your fingers
that sets fire to my bones
these thoughts haunt me now like demons
i am plagued by your ghost
and all our hidden little moments
are the ones i miss the most

if you do one thing today
icarus Dec 2019

give love even to those
that deserve it the least
i promise you;
they need it the most

castles made of sand
icarus Dec 2019

perhaps foolish our hearts
for thinking we could
hold onto this forever
like castles made of sand
we once stood so beautifully
frozen in time, side by side
together as we gazed out
in awe at the waves
as they wash us away

the window of time
icarus Nov 2019

in his words she is immortal
through the window of time
the past is just the bridge
we cross in our mind
what is lost, isn’t forgotten
what is gone, may never return
the most tragic lesson taught in love
is the one we try unlearn

her beauty
icarus Nov 2019

her beauty is the novel
that no words can describe
her beauty is the moonlight
the stars could never find
her beauty makes us equal
from sinner to a saint
her beauty is the sunset
van gogh could never paint

forgotten in sand
icarus Nov 2019

i struggle to define
exactly what
you mean to me
these eyes
have gazed upon
an ocean of faces
in this world
but still yours,
the only one i see
eyes that gaze
deep into my glare
cut me to the core
but god no longer cares
to hear my voice
laying passed out
on the floor
my head at war
with my heart
i simply cannot
why a love
as real as ours
is left forgotten
in the sand
i walk this shore
an endless loop
in the hope
that i will find
just one more
to feel your
love again
even if its
in my mind

thank you for the dance
icarus Nov 2019

thank you for the dance
our hearts have loved
and loved, unshaken
behind each stolen smile
they both were breaking
we sought comfort in each other
a place to feel safely insane
a world away from everyone else
a world away from our pain
without you, minutes feel like hours
days don’t even feel real
the love that cuts us without warning
is the one that the never heals  
i hope our hearts may
find each other once again
so that i finally have the chance
to tell you, that mines
has never stopped loving you
thank you for the dance

foolish are the brave
faithless are the lost
but hopeless is he;
who can love only himself

her magic
icarus Nov 2019

moonlight spilling from her eyes
magic pouring from her lips
the universe in audience of her beauty
even the stars would weep with envy

Nov 2019 · 80
icarus Nov 2019

her lips pressed against my lips
like honey soaked confetti
her fingers cut me open with such beauty
like a daffodil machete

the laws of nature
icarus Nov 2019

i once believed we would
go on together forever
i once dreamed we
would sit side by side
gazing out into the blackness
as we watched each star
hanging in the night sky
go out one by one
our love outlasting their light
our love transcending time
i thought nothing could
pull you from me
that the laws of nature
would bend only for us
but my ignorant mind
and my foolish heart
lead me to believe
i could have you forever

trapped in sand
icarus Nov 2019

sadness is a quicksand
the more you wrestle within it
the more you allow it
to imprison you

nights like this
icarus Nov 2019

on nights like this;
lost under the blackness
of an autumn sky
the sanguine moon
she proudly hangs high
suspended in darkness
i feel her gaze down
each star seems less wonderful
when your not around
on nights like this;
my body aches for your fingers
my lips burn for your touch
one more night of sacred worship
lost in your church
if only i had known;
the world would feel this empty
time would pass this slow
i’d give anything to go back
just too never let go

drowning in you
icarus Oct 2019

like surrendering to the ocean
floating carelessly, weightless
lost deep within her waves
i am terrified; and yet at peace
loving you feels much the same
the more i fight these feelings
the more i struggle amidst this storm  
the more i drown in my lungs
and you pull me under
but to be lost in your waters
submerged beneath your waves
and drowning in you
is the sweetest hallelujah
i have ever known

the water
icarus Oct 2019

candle light burning gentle
the flames dancing so free
illuminating the water
a reflection of me
i gaze into it’s glow
i am lost in it’s gleam
lost deep in that water
the person i used to be

to be a prisoner of ones own mind.
Oct 2019 · 88
icarus Oct 2019

i am no better
i am no worse
i try improve how i am
to improve who i am
from the experience
of who i was

icarus Oct 2019

the most tragic pain in love
steams right from the root
when our hearts can crave only
the most forbidden of fruit
the most tragic pain in love
is the flame that won't die
all we long to possess
that money can't buy
the most tragic pain in love
is the pain we are taught
when our hearts try to forget
what cannot be forgot

Oct 2019 · 200
icarus Oct 2019

it was in those moments
between each stolen kiss
in that deafening silence
with starlight pouring
from your lips
i felt planets collide
universes bending
into one another
our love was never
bound for this world
our love something
else completely
as ancient as the stars
transcending even time her self
something else entirely my love
something extraterrestrial


— The End —
