You are smoke.

You are smoke.
Impossible to touch,

You are smoke.
Because even though you slip
through my fingers,
And I can't hold onto you,

You suffocate me.
You make it hard for me to think.
You seep into every inch of my lungs;
You are harmful.

You are smoke.
Evaporating vapour;
And all I want to do is breathe you in.
"Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs." - William Shakespeare

Spawn of dying stars
Scattered sentient stardust
Stripped of sensation

Glowing silver orb
Pale rays caressing the waves
Soothing lonely souls

Selenophile: a person who loves the moon

Life is akin to a symphony.
Even though everything is temporary,
And our existence is
But a few notes,
Each and every one of us
To its masterpiece.

Burning inferno
Swirling vortex of fury
Mesmerizing blaze

you set my heart on fire
jl Jan 2019
Late night texts
Sleepy eyes
Small smiles

Stolen moments
Held inside
Beating heart


Left alone
Tear filled eyes
Chapped lips
Scarred thighs

Empty promises
Cast aside
Broken heart

there's a reason why its called a crush
jl Jan 2019
Bleak. Barren. Broken.
Blackness blotting out the blood
Basking in blazes

First attempt at a haiku :)
