In your arms,
I'm in my safe haven.
With you holding me tight,
I have no other craving.
All I need is that one look
that says you're always there,
just like in a romance book.
Your eyes talk to me as the world stands still.
My once empty heart now with love does fill.
Your eyes tell me that
you'll love me every day.
No matter what may come,
you'll be there to stay.
I tell you everything and never with a lie:
all my worldly secrets
and everything that once made me cry.
Everything in my past,
with you I can forget it all.
I know I can trust you
to catch me if I fall.
If only I could explain
how much love I have for you.
Then maybe, just maybe, you'd feel it too.
There is a boy who only loves me in his sleep.
He kills me every dawn and revived me every twilight with a kiss.
He is both my tormentor and my savior;
A precious dream out of the ashes of my nightmares.
He loves me only in his sleep.
On those brief moments when the night touches the sky.
While I’ve been loving him every moment of every day.
I wrote him poems
he’ll never know about.
I feel everything at once.
I feel nothing at all.
I don’t know what’s worse;
Drowning beneath the waves
Or dying from the thirst.
If Jumping into a black hole
would bring back your smile
I would do it
in a heartbeat.
Writing about him was the only thing that kept me sane. I turned him into metaphors and called him everything from a drug to a hurricane. Now that I am healed, I see my writing made him look so exotic and special, but he wasn't. He was just a boy, a boy who I thought was way more.
Let's face it, we just aren't meant to be, It's my fault. You are fire and I am water.
You burn brightly. You are energetic, fierce, strong, and warm. You could do anything. You're passionate, a little hot-headed at times, occassionally a bit dangerous, but you can love like no one else.
I am calming. I go with the flow. I'm cool, but not in a good way. My heart is cold. I crash into everything like waves. I engulf things. Anyone that meets me ends up changed for the worse. I am the ocean during a storm. I don't want your fire to be extinguished by my water. So I am letting you go. Get out, before you drown.
