Te amo means I love you

y te quiero means I want you,

like the sand wants the waves

with a back and forth kiss,

like the ocean the skies

or my lips want your lips.

Like my hand on your thighs

all night long wants to play,

no te amo, te quiero

on my own special way,

like the ocean the skies

or the sand wants the waves.

“I want her to melt into me, like butter on toast. I want to absorb her and walk around for the rest of my days with her encased in my skin.”

your eyes predetermine the forecast of my heart
and amidst prediction, they've stirred up a storm

my mind erupts from peaks to oceans
your breath being the momentum that fuels it endlessly

barefoot you walk
across the terrains of my thoughts
tread delicately love
your footsteps foreshadow movement of the sands

its odd weather you bring
but strangely i feel replenished

why do roses die but thorns remain?
I write with a fervent zest
Not me, the other I
Who writes through me
Does not let me rest

It’s a weekend, for me
The other I wants to
Put everything in words
She observes and feels too much

I try hard to reason with her
She seldom listens to me
Takes decisions, unbeknownst to me
Thinks, the mind is all hers to keep

Sometimes I need my time to me
But she has too much to express
And she does, you see
I am sometimes possessed by this other me
A busy day!!

i like to close my eyes
and dream of carrying my
toffee eyed baby girl
through museums and exhibits
uncovering to her
eons of renaissance magnificence.

i imagine us holding hands
walking through botanical gardens
humming at birds
blooming with flowers
talking about the ecologic manifestations
of modern day society.

i want to take her to NASA
and make her mind expand
like the universe has for as long
as mankind lived
and realize some concepts are
so vast, so unfathomable
that the greatest beauty within us all
is the curiosity leading us
to try and understand.

i want her to know
that this life
has stretched on for centuries behind of her
and will continue for centuries ahead
but her arrival
in this era, at this time, in this moment
is the pivotal point around which
my universe turns.

its like a fire,
licking your raw skin
mapping its way across your body
kicking in the windows
leaving your home in flames

i have never been more fearful
and in that, lies my strength
