Missy Nov 2015
Your gasp for air after shattering leaves me broken
Empathy rushes through my veins and pull on every heart string
The tears escaping your solemn yet fragile eyes pierce my skin
Leaving holes in my chest when I dreamed to hold you tight
Cold shivers ran through my breathless body when hearing your cry
Knowing the distance between souls and vessels left us hopeless
My words held no comfort when shouting them miles from earshot
Cravings of your warmth prodded and tortured my body
Motionless and frustrated
While you lie heart broken and desolate
My arms did not stretch far enough to touch you
My promises did not seep into your body and diffuse your fears
Our outcome was grim and left no pleasure to be saved
You, gasping for air in between lonely sobbing
Me, hopeless and worthless, giving support or comfort needed
Distance means everything in terms of dire needs

A Perfect Arrangement of Atoms
Missy May 2015
For a creation was devised of the purest and simplest elements in life
When the calming and smooth sensation of water caressed your bones, it carved canals of strength along the way
Your skin crawled and crept past your defined chin to bind with its lover
and when the tendon reached the muscle, it fused in an unbreakable relationship
Baby, the sight of your eyes shatters the crystallization of the finest glass
And your voice pierces the night fog leaving a path for only you
The kindness of your heart poured into the rivers to feed oxygen to all of those who depended on it
Your body contains the same carbon that creates sparkling diamonds
The majority of the oxygen is the same element creating tornadoes, or when fused to hydrogen to make a hurricane
Do you see how powerful you are made?
Your soft lips are the same lips that can produce sound in an empty canyon
Your bones are the base of your embrace when you sweep me off my feet
That mind is the exact replica that discovered how to survive the times that were a bigger struggle than planned
Despite all of these acts, how simple or extravagant
You are the perfect arrangement of atoms that hold my hand when I am scared to carry on alone
And the same arrangement of atoms that pull me close and kiss my lips
One might say these actions, however small, have a stronger effect than any hurricane, or tornado, or diamond
For you are a creation devised of the purest and simplest elements in life
And you are completely mine

your courageous one second actions define your character
the fact of risking one's life for their love's enjoyment
an action bold and stupid
yet beautiful and kind
a simple gesture in the middle of absolute chaos
attention on a daunting task
but takes the time to secure all surroundings for those quick three seconds
a simple kiss
yet bold and filled with passion
a kiss while your hand holds the wheel steady, and my shirt grasped in the other
pull me close, then let go
you are dangerous, but an oh so addicting entertainment
a one second decision
Missy May 2015
my love, you are not the cause of my biggest struggle
you do not face consequences for the actions of my largest downfall
these tears streak iron bars across my face as they fall
but you are not the reason i feel sadness

my love, you showed me the kindest of sun rays peering through the clouded dull sky
you held my hand and supported me when i took beginning steps onto sleek ice
it was you who showed the path to leave sadness in despair and lonesomeness

my love, i have wallowed in this darkness for several eternities
i feel deep sadness in the moments i do not feel your influence
for you are the reason the air fills my lungs and my chest rises and falls
you are the reason i can laugh, smile, and dream oh so wonderfully

**you are not the reason i feel sadness

let us plan a future, a life beyond here
map our journey, then rearrange
tear up the remaining, and toss it aside
take me everywhere, in no place particular
discover a new corner of the world
find a cranny under a tree
kiss me under painted skies
and stare into my eyes in one of the world's wonders
make the land jealous of your touch
make the branches dance in eagerness of your attention
take me to places hidden away from the eyes of anyone
this world squanders the beauty of its abandoned secrets
let us seek and discover what it has hidden
hidden underground the fresh and damp dirt
hidden behind walls of vegetation
hidden beside rocks in forceful rivers winding through open land
and maybe, find ourselves hidden within the world itself

the sweet sound of your voice in the breeze
the musky scent of your cologne
the wrinkles in your cheeks when you smile
these memories engraved in my memory, my conscious brain
and so much more realistic than any vivid dream

your warmth and comfort under a dark sky  
your lips, oh hell, the beginning of a sweet, kind addiction
your hand held in mine, a physical connection separate from emotion
these comforts, my dreams, fulfilled by one sole human
and so wonderfully admirable

the butterflies captured inside of my stomach
the giggles after moments of affection and kind fighting
the fingertips tracing little crevasses of exposed skin
its this that left its mark, like a bruise
your fingerprints left each memory of us captive, hostage

in my sweet memories, these moments last
but in reality, they live more vividly

Among the Meek
Missy Nov 2014
you are the man of the lean and meaner
and I am just a woman of misdemeanor

holding such attributes of will and power
each time I wander my confidence got smaller

handling ill times with a gentle caress of ease
my effort and failed attempts carried away with the afternoon breeze

the moment arose when you saw my face
acceleration sped up in my heart as it ran at a dangerous pace

instant affection created in a glace held for seconds
I had forgotten your face, until this very moment of minuscule bond

you were perfect in image, as those words continue to prove true
my love once hidden, arose from my perennial blues

once timid and meek, my personality had changed
for the emotions I once secured, were now rearranged

the feelings, so fragile, balanced at the corner
verged yet to tip, or be caught a lusted figure

cards carefully played, laid out on the table
only left to draw, and find emotion in your poker face if I am able

slipping in stubbornness, you smiled ever so sweet
I knew right then, my heart had hope, however meek

my soul fits yours, and the hearts can meet
one day together, and I shall no longer be the meek

Tin Man
Missy Nov 2014
with a body concealed in armor
and a heart filled with iron bars
let me in to see your light

the man had a past of thorns
yet a soul of gold
invite me in to reveal your sweeter side

with a mind set of a government spy
and the emotion of burdened soldier
smile to me wide and let your guard down

the man had the memories on the battlefield
yet no scars to prove his achievement
come sit close and tell me the tales of your life

with the courage of a fighter
and the actions of a member of the counterculture
lean in close and let your lips meet mine

the man who thought he had no heart to love
yet held the key for an eternal sanctuary
forget all your tales, and spare your future to adventure with me

he smiles to create the world's golden happiness
his laughter opens the confused, rainy skies
he's the one to love more than the heavy drops in the ocean
he looks with heart-felt eyes as deep as the hidden valleys below his feet
he lives to change the clashing towns surrounding
his love eases wars stirring about in the distance
he amazes my personal beliefs repeatedly
for this world he lives for
happens to be me

Unfortunate Raindrops
Missy Nov 2014
there was a time before when I could walk
I stepped among strangers on misguided paths
on roads unnamed
remaining cracked and broken
people hid their blank faces
steps incautiously taken
but there was one abnormal stranger
he lifted his eyes above the ground
and smiled at the unfortunate raindrops
then suddenly I was falling
he held vivid color in his eyes
life in his dreams
the world was dark and bleak
yet illuminated by his love
my feet have never touched solid ground since
and they never will
remaining to search for such reason
the reason his love can be shown to only I

your smile holds a summer days sunshine
and laughter that shakes the autumn leaves to the ground
for so much love was held in watching the corners of your lips curl
your lips kiss the air, unworthy to caress such treasures
such being without flaw stood in distance to smell one's minted breath
your eyes held a gaze meant only for angels
yet there you stood pondering every aspect of my ****** features
analyzing as if I was a priceless article in an art museum
your lips curled once again simultaneously
your words and action were not created for people as I
yet there you stand
breathing the same earthy air into our lungs
seeing the same vivid colors now going blurry around me
as I fell harder, you were only there to catch me
and the world will never be the same
or at least without daily witness of your lips curling
in essence to show your happiness
an emotion engraved permanently into my mind
as if this moment is everlasting

Shared Soul
Missy Oct 2014
words preached of two parallel worlds
one created of an original half
deities from above create one universal, with separate bodies
human nature craves desire and to be cherished
infants cry out for the care of a mother
children tease and chase the other gender without purpose
from our creation, we long someone to be paired with
without reason, we are left to discover encouragement
and reason for our actions
first kiss
butterflies flutter
cheeks flush
pre-adulthood beings overreact to one longing stare
hoping and gossiping of its purpose
human nature desires to be loved
stupidity results in misguided and unknown meaning of love
left alone to interpret vastness of this word "love"
definition is set in stone
for its your other half
another heart that beats to find the matching rhythmic pattern
two bodies, one soul
and you my dear, are extraordinary
smiles spread uncontrollably
dimples appear, and cheeks flush once more
kisses and hugs erupt in chaotic nerves quivering
this, my darling, is our definition
defining our need to express and discover
our shared soul

let us begin
look at me with your heavy eyes
feel free to reach out and touch
you set the mood
and imagine all possible actions

here we start
you place your hand by my side
i will pull you up closer
and draw you in with dancing eyes
teach me your lullaby

separate beings, with two souls
won't you take me now to show how this goes?
make me yours, take me now
be gentle, then rough
intertwine and make us one

pin me down, for it won't take long
I'll be leader and teach you how we dance
once gentle, now bold
teasing starts, and noises are pronounced
lips touch before you plead for me to stop

rhythm speeds, as tension rises
darkness is complete with many sharp actions
breathing rises and falls
along with the motion of our bodies
the game has only just begun

our exposition, start to our novel
eyes roll back and forth
reading instructions of how to go beyond
love me hard, or love me never
rules to play follow the same

reaching our rising action, mood intensifies sharply
temperature and nerves rage high
emotions run loose, as i kiss your neck
make me moan, and call me your baby
i can be yours, and name you my king

hide me beneath, and act faster
for our ****** is right around the corner
we act as a rebellion
but i will love you harder and forever more
we now are one

feelings rage high
as all tension releases, we freeze in amazement
your hands leave marks of love past bare backs
as I kiss your neck, and bite your ear
we have long pasted our exposition

laughter carried on a frosted breeze
kisses imprinted on blushed cheeks

fingerprints trace carved letting
in childish acclamation of our future engagement

whispers chiming through close eardrums
smiles opening into an unbound love

footprints lead towards new adventures unseen
where doors lock and giggles can be heard

darling, you are my euphoria
my highs in my uneventful life

dares to defy our love
unbroken promises in impossible feats attempted

our love only written in fairy tales
comes to life before our naked eyes

kiss me softly, if you please
i promise there are no times greater than these

motions rigid, actions unspoken
breathing intensified, darkness blackened
bodies unseen, unforgiving hands travel
passionate candles dance to the rhythm of the newborn beat
secretive longings, lusting scenarios
whispered callings, stimulated beings
sparks ignited, rigid loving
beings become intertwined instantly once the opportunity arises
sensual kisses, playful bites
scratches unobtainable, shivers unintentional
pulses quicken, thrusts intensify
smiles widen while moans roar to escape the overwhelmed being
moments freeze, emotions boil
blood churns, shivers spread
amazement portrayed, ****** ceases

Measure Love in Miles
Missy Oct 2014
distance eliminates simple joy of a smile
the warmth of a kiss is extinguished
the cheer of bright laughter muted
gentle grasp of holding hands slips
and we are left in confusion when their footsteps lead away
loneliness replaces tears of comical statements
and the smell of their scent vanishes like a shy ghost
for sunny skies turn gray
and the world around us continues on, when we are frozen in a memory
our passion and motivation remains on stand still
when nudged we fall over, and refuse to be picked back up
but if we measure love in miles
rare necessities become all the more precious
kisses become sweeter
conversations stretch past closing times in restaurants
hugs become tighter, and embracing releases all past worries
glances become longing
and moments become cherished memories yet to be created
only if we would measure love in miles, instead of love in seconds
cherishing with bliss and thanks would prolong

his eyes trace my figure as my fingers trace his
and when lips meet it proves of radiant bliss
but as soon as pale hearts meets the greeting night
then hips align like stars only to delight
as one we seek places of the highest standing
using directions written on love marked skin
once innocent, now dangerous
no question arises to contradict such action
for strangers eyes lead astray when they hear of our stories
but the novels we write are only locked and hidden
for those strangers would assure to steal them away
elegance and divinity are like those of vintage coffee shops
where broken hearts are mended with love stories, caffeine and nicotine
where our adventures are as priceless as the Mona Lisa
and no soul can buy or touch the love we express
frost-touched lips meet in the seldom disturbed fields
where thoughts gallops freely and laughs carry on caressing breezes
for we out number the night's stars in moments made into memories
and our touch burns hotter than the smoldering sun in the Sahara
desires dig deep as our roots of commitment
while seconds pass  by without your sheer image
for our novels live on, as we tangle around each other
and passion gleams farther in fields with cold breezes
darling, our love is stronger than imaginable
for with you, your more addictive than hot caffeine in the morning
stronger impulse than nicotine in a life-long habit
your love, our love
we are forever infinite

he has the features of divine interests
holds the secrets of the world in his eyes
spirit uncrushable, boldness pulsed through his fingertips
tracing veins and chasing his life through each breath
his past occurrences fight to keep hold
touched by evil, which held no forgiveness
but his mind's endurance is unfailing
he proves unbreakable, yet entrusting
a man of promises and kindness
bold and cunning
yet sentimental and sweet towards the one he loves
his soul vast as the sea, with thoughts exotic and illegible
opening to only the select few
his lips kiss with such promise and sincerity
yet speak defensive words without tremble
by definition, such man is unheard of
defying the laws of natural society
one truthful to his word, bravery shown to all
and he will never cease to amaze
a companion by day, yet warrior by night
defined of many aspects
by definition, he is forever faultless

one foot in front of the other
the miles proceed to sky rocket
although the time is not wasted
for its minutes counted in kisses
and eternity held in your smile
the day sets with the sun
for then the stars come out to play
we dance beside licking flames of a bonfire
and we drink to the memories to be forgotten
we chant to the morning
wishing it refuses to return
our eyes trace each other's figure
for madness of desire settles in
as every second freezes when you hand holds mine
and fingers trace across defined jaw lines
distance seems to be far away in the mist of the mountains
held only in a creative imagination

Missy Oct 2014
the touch of tracing fingertips sends nerves on end
brisk chase of foggy breath resonates in the close humid air
fog clusters in every crevasse of my active mind
yet his smile like a dagger, cuts clean through any cluster
the man who creates such mental madness is the remedy for disease
the fluid slides down my throat, burning with high passion
my vision  becomes blurry, making out only your defined features
your eyes chase my lips, as they quiver past your jawline
steps retract closer, as your whisper tickles past my ear
you compete my every being
oh how sweet is the bourbon on our lips

— The End —
