jl Feb 2019
You are smoke.
Mesmerizing.
Dangerous.
Beautiful.

You are smoke.
Impossible to touch,
Soothing,
Intoxicating.

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
jl Jan 2019
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
Contributes
To its masterpiece.

Burning inferno
Swirling vortex of fury
Mesmerizing blaze



~j.l.
you set my heart on fire
jl Jan 2019
Late night texts
Sleepy eyes
Small smiles
Butterflies

Stolen moments
Held inside
Beating heart
Stupefied

~

Left alone
Tear filled eyes
Chapped lips
Scarred thighs

Empty promises
Cast aside
Broken heart
Terrified

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


~ j.l.
First attempt at a haiku :)
