FOR YOU
Ozioma Ogbaji Apr 2015
You are a beautiful star.
Like Sirius on a starry night,
You gloriously shine so bright
And can be seen from afar

You are brave, you are strong
You are wise, though sometimes wrong
You are different, uniquely you
For there is no other quite like you

Your mind, your eyes, your stride;
Even your flaws, are beautiful too
I hope you see what I see in you
For it means nothing if you cannot see it too

infatuation [haiku]
Q Jul 2018
where i belong is
somewhere, submerged in your depths
lost with you, in you

"I want to show you I'm a man.  I want to be your man."
Ashish Gaur Jul 2018
I want to feel you
but I've long lost the feelings I yearn
I want to kiss you
but then you'll feel the coldness in my soul

I want to be a part of you
but I am afraid of the part I've become
I want to be with you
but then you'll find the demons I've to overcome

I want to know you
but I am lost in the past that haunts me day and night
I want to hold you
but then you'll sense my heart bleeds beat by beat

I want to take care of you
but you don't know how broken I am inside
I want to fall in love with you
but I've buried those emotions for a long time

Because...

You won't understand
being trapped in yourself.
So many times,
I've tried to free myself.

You won't understand
that I never meant to hurt you.
Trying to protect you,
each day I fought myself.

You won't understand
when I say it's not you.
It's never been you,
it's always that part of me.

You won't understand
because words can never tell you.
You're the reason I want to change,
so one day; we'll be just you and me.
Ever sweet and ever loving-
The times were ever changing.
Malicious and fearsome-
The times were dense with resentment.
Tainted and taken;
Downward and mistaken.
Disillusions and inner turmoil-
Took control and destructed with mayhem.
The ever loving and sweet things were long forgotten,
And twisted and made rotten, through the illusions you’ve spoken.
The question remains, what have you to gain?
Perception has been warped and lies wired and reword with the intention to disarray.
The cloths of fabrication wrap perfectly along your body.
The deceit.
The resentment.
The lies;
The ill intentions-
have coveted the means for resonance and rehabilitation
In the sense of self preservation-
In the sense in which you lack and cannot maintain.
If you know then you know

don't look at me like that

don't look at me like i mean something to you

your eyes, surrounded by freckles, hiding your own pain

dont look at me like you wont leave

it's all pretend

don't tell me im dramatic

ill add it to my list of things i cant control

my mind will repeat it every second

please make it stop

tell me how much i hurt you

i deserve to be the target of your pain

hit me with your words
cut me to show your pain

show me what i did to you

i deserve it all

Through each situation,
           You’re a new person, conformist.
Body like a snake,
                The serpent himself
        See him? Contorting, twisting, fitting.
He’s the Man of the hour.
                Dripping like solid gold, are his words.
                        The “audience” stands captivated.
          Almost frozen, I’ve lost my tongue.
Unable to speak, I’m no match
          - For you.

For you
Pallavi Feb 28
I am the moon,
walking along the night.
I am the eyes,
for every pleasant sight.
I am the air,
for every single breathe.
I am the light,
to bury darkness beneath.
I am the cool breeze,
intense summer heat.
I am the death,
wants to live you .......
In repeat.
