future
if you cant handle my past
you will never be a part of my future
nothing can replace the love that you have for yourself
so if you cannot find a part of yourself that you are truly in love with
build the love
with your own two hands
until you can truly say that you are in love with yourself
i believe in you

genuine smiles
im glad ive finally found someone
whom i wont need to fake a smile around
pure genuine happiness radiates between us
Mar 14 · 123
together
together
we watch the sun depart
down into the earth

together
we watch the moon rise
into the deep black sky

masterpiece
each morning when she brushes her makeup on her face
she feels like picasso painting a masterpiece
she is a beautiful piece of artwork

scars of the past
i wish i could be unaffected by the scars of my past
but time can heal no wound of mine
the marks will last a lifetime
Mar 5 · 363
through your fingers
i kept pouring myself
into your palms
but you let me leak through your fingers
and drip onto the cold hard ground
i gave you everything i had
Mar 4 · 185
fingerprints
i scrub and i scrub and i scrub
but nothing can erase the fingerprints you have left on me
because they are imprinted in my memories
and i can still picture where your fingers have been
Mar 3 · 106
angles
his fingers traced every angle of her body
like a mathmatician conjecturing a new formula
slowly yet profoundly
Mar 3 · 100
snowfall
oh the serenety of the snow
blanketing the earth
sparkling irradescently
a glowy facade of icy bliss
i could watch it fall for hours
flake by flake
appreciating the uniqueness of each one
until they dissapear into the ground
combining together to form a pile of glistening beauty
Mar 2 · 81
goodbye
if i had known it was goodbye
i wouldve kissed you harder
Mar 1 · 68
plain reality
why is it hard to see
plain reality
when your heart is focused on another
Feb 28 · 142
the wrong places
ive been looking for love in the wrong places
like an explorer on a voyage
through the deep dark ocean
searching for new lands
but never finding them
its a purposeless and meaningless search because i already know that, like the explorer, i will never find the love i need
Feb 28 · 78
never felt right
loving you felt alright
but in the back of my mind it never felt right
Feb 27 · 229
disappearing
i had all
and then most of you
some
and then none of you
Feb 27 · 618
sealing my emotions
a pen
in my hand
touched the paper
and spilled out my emotions haphazardly

then i put the paper
in a glass bottle
sealed it with a cork
and pitched it into the deep ocean
sealing up my emotions and throwing them far away
Feb 26 · 80
the fine line
the fine line between love and hate
happens to be you
at times you fill my heart with anguish
but your love still draws me towards you
and i hate everything you did to me
but somehow i am still wholeheartedly in love with every part of you
why do i still love you after you ripped my heart apart?

another snowy day
another snowy day
reminds me of the night
you kissed me on the front porch of your house
it was freezing
but our passion and heat
seemed to block the cold and calm the blizzard surrounding us

you very carefully grazed my snow-filled hair
looked deep into my eyes
pulled me in towards you
and kissed me
intensely and passionately

and when we pulled away
you flashed me your brilliant smile
and walked back inside
leaving me desperately yearning for more
feeling abandoned in the arctic air

every snowy day brings me right back to that night
the night of my very first kiss
the night i still had your attention
the night you were still mine
this harsh winter brings endless snowy days spent thinking about you
Feb 25 · 223
fire and gasoline
we went together like fire and dynamite
something was bound to explode
you and me together was like lighting a match and igniting explosives, nothing went well when i was with you
i never knew how much the heart could break
until i was lying next to you
and you were thinking about someone else
i know you were imagining i was her when we were together. the difference between me and her is you actually loved her, but you just used me.
Feb 23 · 253
fool
its hard to realize
that you are not a fool
for being fooled by a fool
just realizing that it wasnt my fault
Feb 21 · 315
explorer
he embraced the crevices and ridges of her body
like an adventurer exploring new terrains
he would not be staying for long.
Feb 20 · 237
still on my mind
its been so long
since i got to hold you
but i still cant seem to get you off my mind
its taking me so long just to say so long

two roses (wip)
two roses-
growing in the same bush-
surviving off the same soil-
growing into something beautiful-
becoming something greater-
growing as one

the sun-
shining bright upon them-
encouraging their growth-
lighting up their future-
calming their senses-
kindling the passionate affair-
moving them closer together-
more intimate and dear

the sun neglects its obligation to one of the roses-
refusing a light source for the bloom-
leaving it wilted and begging for nutrients-
brown and fragile-
dying as the sun proceeds to rise over the other rose

the second rose continues growing along with the sun-
in spite of the downfall of the latter-
almost mocking the lesser decaying bloom-
because it has a source of light encouraging its growth-
safe and sound-
not giving any pity to the rotting flower beside it-
soaking up its own source of light-
and not sharing any rays with the decaying blossom-
rendering it useless and unwanted

the selfishness of the one rose-
refusing to share its sunshine with the latter-
results in solely one rose-
instead of two roses
stop taking my light, i want to grow, too
driving in my car
nearing the next intersection
green light
its okay to go
i see you
perpendicular to me
a red light illuminating your face
you appear to be stopping
an illusion of safety
because you are not stopping
neither of us are stopping
we are hurling towards each other
becoming closer and closer together
nearly inches from each other
my life is flashing before my eyes
i look into your big brown eyes
bracing for inevitable impact
and we crash
debris flying everywhere
fire kindling over our engines
metal scraping upon metal
our cars dragging across the cold hard cement
sirens blaring in the distance
i feel blood running down my body
im gasping for breath
unable to move a single limb
but i scan my eyes over the scene
searching for you
i need to make sure you are okay
i see you step out of your vehicle
not a scratch upon your body
i call out for you but no words come out of my mouth
only murmurs
i try to reach out for you
demanding your attention
but i cannot seem to muster the strength
and then your eyes meet mine
and my heart refills with your passion
i remember all the love you have given me before
all the moments we have shared together
you look at me with a cold stare
like you dont even recognize me
then you turn around
begin to walk away from me
and flee the scene of your crime
you left me in ruins
destruction to smithereens
and then walked away like i meant nothing
you were never concerned with me
you were just a reckless driver
and i guess i was just at the right place at the right time
our love ended like a car crash
my first kiss
my first love
want to remember.
the heartbreak
the abandonment
want to forget.
i want to remember the passion but want to forget the heartbreak
Feb 16 · 137
a one way street
sometimes
love is a one way street
and i always go the wrong way
and love the ones i shouldnt
going down these one way streets causes me to crash
Feb 16 · 380
galaxy
last night i stayed up
until the stars lost their warmth
until the constellations rearanged
until the moon departed back into the galaxy
just thinking about you
the night sky is clearing but im still awake
Feb 15 · 118
dread
now, your face is the one i dread the most
because it is the face ive always wanted the most
but can never have
when i see your face, my breath begins to fade and my heart begins to accelerate
Feb 15 · 148
blinded by love
i cannot take in the unimaginable beauty of the world around me anymore
because you blinded me with love
and never unmasked me
Feb 15 · 240
i loved you first
when you are kissing her
i want you to remember that you kissed me first
when you are touching her
i want you to remember that you touched me first
when you are loving her
i want you to remember that you loved me first
Feb 13 · 145
thinking of you
if i wrote you a poem
for every time ive thought about you
i would be writing for an eternity
never lifting my pen
i would write you a novel
Feb 13 · 226
the last time
if i had known it was going to be the last time i saw you
i wouldve taken in every detail of you
the scent of your cologne
the softness of your hair
the feeling of your hands on my body
the sense of comfort i felt when your arm was around me
the sound of your voice
the rhythm of our lips locking together
the emotional connection between us
the safety i felt when you touched me
the feeling that we were the only two people in the world
if i had known it was going to be the last time i ever saw you
i wouldve remembered every little thing
i am starting to forget what you were like
Feb 12 · 151
full moon
another full moon
just like the one we sat under
when i still had you
nostalgic about our past
Feb 12 · 196
serotonin overdose
when i was with you
i was on a serotonin overdose
my brain released chemicals derived from you
Feb 12 · 100
flesh
your hands on my body
breathing hard
bare skin exposed
flesh on flesh
i let you into me
into my intimate places

my sweater still smells like you
i will never wash it again
my mouth still tastes like you
i will savor your taste while it lasts
i can still sense your hands on my body
i will remember the sensations i felt
i can still feel the rhythm of our lips moving together
i will never forget what kissing you is like

the remnants of your body are still on me
and i am trying to remember every detail of you so i never forget
because I may never have your body on mine again
i will never kiss you again, i will never touch you again, i will never have intimacy with you again
Feb 12 · 173
love and hate
you had a way of making me love you and hate you
all at the same time
i hate the way you made me love you
but i love the way you made me fall in love
maybe there isnt much of a difference between love and hate
Feb 12 · 101
again
to kiss your lips again
to have your body against mine again
to feel heat radiating between us again
would be like rejoining heaven on earth
i miss you
Feb 11 · 83
how i disappear
without you
is how i disappear
and live my life alone
forever
forever alone
Feb 10 · 56
let you in
i yearned so badly to be healed
that i let you into my heart
i crammed you into the small space left inside
and just hoped you had good intentions
i dont let just anyone in
Feb 10 · 96
emptyness
maybe we feel so empty
because we leave pieces
of ourselves with the people we once loved
i left my heart with you
Feb 10 · 95
remnants of your love
your love will live forever inside me
even if its tucked far back into the unreachable dark parts of my heart
i will never forget you
Feb 9 · 343
contact high
when we touch i get a contact high
the strength of an overdose
when you touch me, my entire body tingles
Feb 9 · 142
still wanna be yours
i shouldnt lose sleep
over someone who isnt afraid to lose me
but i cant stop thinking about you
Feb 9 · 232
night sky
the only thing that puts me to rest
is knowing that we are looking up at the same constellations
and sitting underneath the same moon
you, me, the moon, and the stars
Feb 7 · 133
my drug
your love is my drug
i need more although you are bad for me
i need your body on mine to ease the pain
i need your lips pressed against mine to fuel my addiction
i need you to drift me to sleep at night
your love is my drug
and i am helplessly addicted
i overdosed on you
Feb 7 · 212
putting him together
his heart is a puzzle
too complex to solve
but all she has ever wanted was to own his heart

so she gathered the pieces
accounted for them one by one
and began to assemble the puzzle
although in her own heart, she knew it would never be completed
you are so complicated
Feb 6 · 174
symphony
our bodies match in an absolutely flawless manner
they sing together with a fiery passion
theyre symphonies writing themselves
theyre perfect harmonies within
like a cadence of sweet victory
our bodies together sing in the perfect key
Feb 6 · 159
attack
i trusted you to guard my emotions
but somehow you captured my heart and managed to let darkness into my chambers
your attack managed to make my heart vulnerable
susceptible to breakage
and just when I thought your invasion was over
you decided to crush my heart to absolute fragments
an unforgivable plot
yet you were forgiven
and although it took me forever to rebuild after you
i would take you back in a second
and suffer all over again
i dont understand why I keep coming back to you
Feb 5 · 120
yours forever
if you would only look at my heart
you would see that your initials are carved deep inside
and im etching away at my heart trying to remove the marks you have left on me
but it seems to be too late
they wont etch away
and my heart will be forever branded with your name
i need to move on
but its too hard
