you
you
i didnt stay in the relationship because i was happy
i stayed because it was you
the ‘you’ who used to surprise me with flowers on a bad day
the ‘you’ who used to always find a way to make me smile
the ‘you’ who used to remind me of what it feels like to be alive
i didnt stay because i was happy
i stayed because it was
you.
i kept remembering the good times and dismissing the bad. i shouldve let you go sooner

a fool
a fool was the one who fell for him
everything about him seemed picture perfect
im the fool who thought he could love me
the way i needed to be loved
cant withstand any more pain from men who cannot love me correctly

i still feel alive
before you
i felt alive

and after you
i still feel alive

as it turns out
i never needed you
to make me feel anything

perfect storm
but nothing good came out
of our perfect storm
the hardest place to be
is right where you are
in the space between
the finish and the start
i shouldnt have burned our bridge in the end
because as it turns out
you are everything i have ever wanted
and everything i will ever need

i shouldnt have hurt you
i never meant to hurt you
i miss you
i miss you with all my heart
forgive me
forgive me
forgive me for the awful pain i have caused you
because i still love you
after all this time i still love you
and all i know is that i need you back
i need you back in my life
please come back
i miss you. im infinitely sorry for the pain i caused you. i never meant to hurt you. i never meant to hurt you. i want you back

people ive never met
my heart aches for people ive never met
my heart recognizes what it wants although its never witnessed it before

not everything i crave is from memory
to my future soul mate, the future love of my life, i will never give up my search for you

he told me i was his endless wonder
since when did endless become transient

the very last time
if i had known it was going to be the very last time i was embracing you
i might have taken notice of the little things
like the way our lips locked together and moved in such a beautiful rhythmic motion
and the way our bodies fit together like a jigsaw puzzle
and the way your voice sang perfect harmonies along with mine
if i had known it was going to be the very last time i was embracing you
i might have taken notice of the little things
its only been a single day since our breakup, i miss every little thing about you like hell
he wrote poems inside of me
he carefully inscribed each letter
allowed my moans to fill the blank pages
and ended the story with one last rhythmic line
leaving me begging for more

love is a battle

we should fight while we still can

nails and screws
throughout the years
my heart has been bashed and broken
shattered and torn
dismantled and crushed
but i kept it together with nails and screws

then he came along
and slowly tore them out
one by one
until he was the only thing holding me together

he mended my broken heart
and i no longer need nails and screws to hold me together
he saved my broken heart

chaos
i like his chaos
the way he blew into my life
like a storm
tearing the walls from my soul
and freeing me into the world
your love freed me

the oceans black
they say the oceans blue but its black right now
in the dark, on the sand, looking out at the clouds

depression and drowning screaming out their full parts
lightning reveals where the ocean stops and the sky starts

and a random strike of light reminds me of what is true
but right now the oceans black and the sky is too

sea of sorrow

and i chased my heart until i found you

he looks into her eyes like an astronomer completely mesmorized by the constellations above
and mapping and plotting every crevice of her body

first kiss
the way you feel when you kiss him for the first time-
like fire within your bones
like your souls colliding in seldom
like fountains of love diffusing from your aura
like every part of you that came from a dead star is alive again

rewind, fast forward
is there ever a point in life that we are
not wanting to go back
and not wanting to go forward?
we forget to cherish the present

home
protect your body
love your body
understand your body
care for your body
because there is no home quite like the one you embody

love yourself first
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

together
together
we watch the sun depart
down into the earth

together
we watch the moon rise
into the deep black sky

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

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 2019 · 262
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 2019 · 616
angles
his fingers traced every angle of her body
like a mathmatician conjecturing a new formula
slowly yet profoundly

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 2019 · 203
goodbye
if i had known it was goodbye
i wouldve kissed you harder

plain reality
when your heart is focused on another

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 2019 · 109
never felt right
loving you felt alright
but in the back of my mind it never felt right
Feb 2019 · 324
disappearing
i had all
and then most of you
some
and then none of you

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

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

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
Feb 2019 · 100
thinking about someone else
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 2019 · 616
fool
its hard to realize
that you are not a fool
for being fooled by a fool
just realizing that it wasnt my fault

explorer
he embraced the crevices and ridges of her body
like an adventurer exploring new terrains
he would not be staying for long.

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

red light green light (wip)
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

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

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
