Let's get it back like nothing happened and return to normal,
Nice while it lasted but the way that this has turned is awful,
Friends with benefits? This is the end of it,
We should've never kissed, it's best we just forget this shit,
I don't wanna be strangers, giving bodily favours,
That'd probably fail I've just gotta honour the changes,
That you made me make, because they made me great,
It was the games we played that swayed me babe,
No one's ready with a friend and a plan at birth,
But we've got each other so I wanna put my hand in hers,
Just platonically honestly, I promise, it's gotta be,
Let's get high as fuck and binge watch Planet Earth.

We're painfully predictable
don't you think?
half a decade
plus some change
of this same insane
almost love story

We make plans we won't keep
the house by the sea
just simple nights on the sofa
or star gazing somewhere
we're just so tired
and it's been so long
we're all talk
we always have been

We fight about nothing
on the quiet days
just to fill the gaps
and as an excuse to make up
but still there's so much
radio silence
screaming
pining
lust

love
A Poem a Day : Six Years
Grace 4d
It’s like
You faded
Away —from— Me
It was
SLOW
SLO
SL
S

You wouldn’t call back
Until hours later
Then you wouldn’t text for
Days
But now
It’s just silence
And my
        H      H
    E E E   E E E
     A A A A A
         R R R
              T
Is  BRØKEN

because
HEA——BREAK——RT
Isn’t ALWAYS cause by
Relationships gone wrong

But it IS ALWAYS caused
By losing the people
You Love

The most painful part?
        I I I I I I       Would                         ET
    I I I I I              Still                     LLET
I I I                       Take a   BULLET
   I I I I I                For                    LLET
       I I I I I I          You                            ET

Even though
YOU
left Me in
The Dust
I miss you.
Vener 7d
Bittersweet.
i was never a fan of that taste--
yet you loved it so much
i hated your grapefruit lip tint the most
and yet the way your lips felt against mine--
it was different.
i mean,
don't get me wrong--
i still hate bittersweet things,
but all because of you--
i might just have to make an exception
it's not as bad as i thought,
but i might need some more convincing--
kisses will do.
my memories of you are bittersweet
if you knew about that,
you would've loved that,
wouldn't you?

The devil dancing in plain sight
When your eyes
glamorize mine
Makin me fantasize
Bout your face between my thighs
Straddle up
From the side
Hips peak high when you choke me as I reach my
DAMN
I love when you snatch it from behind

Let me, keep you in mind
As I slip into something more casual
Slow
Grind, wine
Twisting my tongue letting you unwind
Where my throat flirts with the tip of your boat
Slip N Slide until unified

Let me, take my time
I'm talking knee pads on Valentines
Tryna elevate our vibes
Gates Wild Ride
&
Rotate on cloud 9
Body attentively inclined
To tell you all my
Secrets
Hung to air dry
- Sexual dominance keeps me in line
- Kiss up along my spine
- Grip me right, tight
*Like, be Curious & kill this cat nine times
Now pay those crime fine
Stroke deep in my walls
Rock it til waterfalls
& watch me flood you like high tides
Meet & Greet our sex with sunrise
& bittersweet goodbyes...

I finally found the courage to speak my mind
I'm not so sure that I'll be yours but baby you could be mine

Mary Frances Oct 5
It's bittersweet how you become
the love I see in my eyes
yet the pain I feel in my heart
at the same time.
Bittersweet religion,
Reflecting pools whisper of fate.
A rose among a thousand corpses,
For all we cannot consecrate.

When the curtains come crashing down,
What was love cannot stay.
Bittersweet religion,
Desiderium stars still wish away.

You left me with your touch still on my heart
i still need your loving to stay strong,
you showed me a dark side that I was scared to explore
which brighten my horizons but now that you're gone,
it breaks my heart to see you happy without me

someone said young love at its finest
it more than that dude
its life
its living

she is everything
she is still my best friend
and thats more than I could ever ask for
she is love

I know I need to give a little time
help myself get better
for her
for her family
our family

she still loves me
and I guess I was just scared that I would never hear that again
but I know I will
because our love is neverending
even if we cant be together
we will always be the best of friends

she said that
even if we arent together
we will always love
always be friends

and I cant ask for more
just knowing her is a blessing

so to the dude who said
"young love"
ur quite wrong
adults cant even love this way

sure we get mad and argue
but we get stronger each time
because we want to
because she is life
she is everything

this is more than love
more than life
bigger than the universe
that last poem was a little sad, but that was my feeling at the time. and this is the smarts showing through.

" Before I Knew what the word " impossible"  meant , I could have looked it up or asked someone , but you showed me what it meant and I felt it first hand .. , why is it so bitter ? "
