Dance
Marietta Ginete Aug 2017
I dream of dancing with you.
Although, I'm not exactly good at it.
I dream about just us two,
Dancing and moving together, sounds fun, I'll admit.

I would love to dance,
as long as it's with you.
I'd give dancing a chance,
if you taught me how to.

I'm sorry if I step on your feet.
I'm not the best dancer.
I'll try to move with the beat,
I'll distract you from her.
Dancing never really was my thing.

why
Marietta Ginete Apr 2017
why
Why did you hurt me?
" I'm sorry I hurt you,
I won't do it again, I guarantee.
Believe me, what I say is true. "

Why did you lie to me?
" I'm sorry that I did,
this isn't how I wanted it to be.
I'm sorry for the secrets I hid. "

Why did you do it?
" I'm sorry, I didn't mean to.
Yet, I won't give up on you, I won't quit.
You know I'd never want to hurt you. "

Why do you keep lying?
" That was just one time
and I'm sorry that I lied. "
When has loving ever been a crime?

Why? tell me why?
I don't know why I still even try
to love you when you lie
I guess we'll never know why.

Angels
Marietta Ginete May 2017
Those who have lost their battles,
They'll be fine from now on.
They're up high in their castles,
For their life down here is gone.

Just keep flying up, Angels.
You'll be right where you belong.
Thank you for everything, Angels.
The trip won't be that long.
we've lost so many angels the past few months and I'm so sorry if one of your angels were one of them.

The Hurt Begun
Marietta Ginete Apr 2017
I remember the times I was wasted on alcohol,
and you chose to help me stand up.
I remember we'd always drink tea in the fall,
and you'd make it in my favorite cup.

But then, one morning it was all gone.
You said you were feeling so done,
and you decided to leave by dawn.
That was when the hurt begun

I blamed myself constantly,
saying I never gave you enough.
I should've loved you cautiously.
I shouldn't have acted so *tough.
I should have given you my absolute all.

beliefs
Marietta Ginete Apr 2017
Ii'm a person that believes
that someday you will leave.
And that your smile will be the death of me,
for i know that we can never be.
My heart shouts your name
but if we change we'll never be the same.
Again, here we are.
I see you as nothing but a scar
from what we could've been.
Your hand lifting up my chin,
leaning in for something
that would get my adrenaline pumping.
But no, that'll never happen.
Your arms, i'll never be wrapped in.
You wouldn't show up at my door,
telling me you're wanting us to be more
than friends.

Your eyes told me secrets,
they would keep me sleepless.
It was a stare or a glance
that made me think I had a chance.
Besides, i was probably just another girl.
One of thousands in your world
that is also hoping to call you mine.
And here I am, waiting for something like a sign,
so that I would know when it is my time.
My time for you to love me, your time to rhyme,
your time to be head over heels for me
like how I am now for you, but you don't see.
When it is our time to be together,
I know you would hold me in the cold weather.

But I need to stop with all this thinking
before my heart ends up sinking.
All these what if's and could have beens
is where all the pain really begins.
Because it's you that keeps me overthinking,
and my imagination that keeps me hoping
for something that is way beyond my reach.
And it is you, within each.
I need to stop hoping
and maybe then I'd stop groaning
over a loss that wasn't completely mine.
Soon I'll be laughing and I'll be fine.
But for now, I'll still be desiring.
As long as you're still inspiring.
But I know for sure there's nothing for us.
And for this topic, there's no more to discuss.
i can be quite a pessimist at times.

Eye Contact
Marietta Ginete Apr 2017
They have difficulty keeping eye contact
Because she says it's like everything stops,
Including time,
And it was just so precious.
As if they didn't know if they should smile
Or say hi or give a nod signaling a hey,
But she ends up panicking and runs away.
As if she was Cinderella.
When it was *almost midnight.
the way we glance at each other

Writer's Block
Marietta Ginete Jan 2019
What is this feeling?
The feeling of being empty,
The feeling of lacking emotion,
The feeling of not being able to write.

It's weird not being able to express myself.
The emotions I once felt have left by itself.
The words in my head are stuck there
but at the same time they're nowhere.

I want to write about how I feel for you.
but what is there to write when I feel nothing anymore?
There's nothing else for me to do.
What else is there to write for?
I'm itching to write, I've really missed it.

Never Ending Story
Marietta Ginete Aug 2017
You and I are forever a fantasy.
A fiction story that can never be.
A never ending story of you and me,
consisting of everything I want to see.

In my story, we were foolishly in love.
My heart was yours, and yours was mine.
Something that I've always dreamed of,
like to have our fingers intertwine.

In the end,
it will still be just a fantasy.
A never ending story of you and me
with endless possibilities that can never be.
a stupid story of mine.

Because of Him
Marietta Ginete Aug 2017
Because of him I think of words that play with my heart.
He makes my fingers dance on a keyboard and it creates beautiful words that wish to be shared.
He is the reason why my hands want to create works of art.
He is why my heart feels so scared and unprepared.
I guess you could say that he was my inspiration.

The Pessimistic Emotions
Marietta Ginete Apr 2017
Sadness, we all feel it once in a little while.
Betrayal, everybody does it in their own style.
Hurt, you can't help getting hurt in this world of ours.
Broken, you get even more broken by the hours.

Cravings, we all crave for a little something.
Insecure, sometimes we get insecure over everything.
Emptyness, when you feel nothing.
Worthlessness, when you don't feel like anything.

Alone, when you feel you have no one
Emotions are what make you feel so done.
what do you do when you don't feel anything?

Do I Miss You?
Marietta Ginete Apr 2017
I think about how
you used to hold my hand.
I think about it every here and now,
how things didn't go as planned.
Do I miss you?

I still have our picture in my wallet
and your shirt in my closet
I panicked when I lost it
like how I lost you bit by bit.
**Do I miss you?
i'm not sure if i miss you.

No Stopovers.
Marietta Ginete Sep 2019
The concept of being deceivingly perfect.
For you were the someone who I wanted to stay.
I‘d constantly remind myself not to expect
cause you were a race car in a speeding highway.

I thought that I’d actually be getting somewhere.
We were going in full speed but never stopping.
With the familiar cool breeze running through my hair,
You were just speeding past while I was still walking.
It's been a while since I've last seen you. Can't wait to see you again next week.

No Regrets

If you've ever fallen in love,
don't ever regret it.
It's nothing to be ashamed of.
It's okay that you were open hearted.

Unrequited Love
Marietta Ginete Apr 2017
I loved him.
I tried to give him all I could but failed.
I tried to be the *light
in his world so dim
and I wanted to be the air he inhaled.

This love was one-sided.
Was I not good enough?
Was that why it was so unrequited?
Was that why you were acting so tough?

Didn't you love me?
Atleast at one point?
Why couldn't you see
that hopes tend to disappoint?

You didn't love me as much I loved you.
I tried to force my brain to believe that you did,
and I did believe that you loved me, too.
but that's just one of the many lies that you hid.
you never loved me the way I should have loved myself.

You
Marietta Ginete Apr 2017
You
You were every word
I ever wrote,
Each line I ever heard,
but also that lump in my throat.

You were every road
I ever trailed,
The reason for the smile I always showed,
yet the test I would consistently fail.

You were every song
I ever listened to,
All day and night long,
It would always be you.
why is it always you?

Love Story
Marietta Ginete Apr 2017
We all have our own love stories
each in different categories.
Those that didn't turn out well,
those that fell
and those who never understood
why their partner was up to no good.

We all have our sad love stories too,
including the ones we never really knew.
We all have our hearts broken
all because of each word spoken
it's a love story, baby, just say yes.

He Was Different
Marietta Ginete Apr 2019
His hands were so soft,
I never thought I’d be able to hold them.
His eyes were so sweet,
they were captivating like a bright gem.
His smile was so tired,
it was one of the fakest smiles ever.
He’s so out of reach,
but my time with him felt like forever.
He made me feel something I never felt before

Blue
Marietta Ginete Jul 2019
I would wait for you.
Even if the universe put oceans between us,
and we're separated by miles of the color blue,
whether it be because of the water or the sky,
a color that I once loved and knew,
a color that yet still brings pain and comfort,
the pain of what we once suffered,
but it will all be better soon
I will continue waiting for you.
I made this a while back, i finally felt like sharing it.

What a strange place this is.
Isn't it such a strange place?
To not know ones face,
but follow what one says.

You meet people,
without actually meeting them,
It makes you quite gleeful,
without knowing the outcome.

This place is pretty dangerous
for it's starting to take over

She
Marietta Ginete Jul 2017
She
Like the wind, she was cold.
All because she couldn't find a hand warm enough to hold.
She was convinced that the world hates her,
She believed that the world was so much colder.
She said she feels tired.
She said she's so done with the world and all it's liars.
She repeats everything she has said and done,
Without a word, nothing heard, she's gone.
she was scared.

Cause
Marietta Ginete May 2017
what caused my change?
my heartbreak.
It may sound quite strange
but it was the ache.

I used to wonder
If I would be able to love again.
It left me to ponder
If I would forever feel this pain.

In fact, I didn't.
I wanted to prove I was better.
If only you hadn't
made my heart shatter.

after a while, I finally stopped
I stopped groaning and crying.
but then again, my heart dropped
because I felt like dying.

this pain you gave me
will forever have its mark,
a mark you won't see
for it is trapped in the dark.
it's the pain that changes us all.

Them
Marietta Ginete Apr 2017
I consider them as my everything
but they don't know that.
They are the reason why I sing
wherever I'm at.

They have inspired me
to do better.
They are my reality
and my gold treasure.

They introduced me to this,
a world completely unfamiliar
but it was pretty bliss
to be somewhere quite peculiar.

We'll be heading our own ways soon
I'm not so prepared.
Without them I'm a song without a tune,
a machine that can't be repaired.

Yet I thank you,
for everything.
I did what I wanted to.
You are my favorite thing.
"they" are my friends.

They helped me change for the better.
Those who will stay for the end
will be considered greater.

They helped me when most needed
and encouraged me so much
They cheered when I suceeded
and always stayed in touch.

I wanted to be left
but they wouldn't let me.
i wanted to be there for his whole quest
but they couldn't agree.

I had to leave.
I didn't want to but they made me.
You wore your heart on your sleeve
just so that I could leave guilt-free.

So tell me, did I make the right choice?
did i not use my voice?
Would you rather leave or be left,
and leave every word unexpressed?
I never meant to leave
