I've got plenty of time
But it's only finite

The question, imperious in my mind
When will I find Cloud 9?

Tell me the meaning
For what, am I searching?

A place or my mental state?
But how does it change?
Is there a destination?
Or is it just my imagination?

How do I embark on this journey?
Can anyone tell me?
What does it even mean?

Don't lose your heart
Embrace your dreams
You will be lost
But one day you will be found

Don't forget your dreams
They guide you through life
Even if all else fails
You will always have your heart

Searching in the wrong place
Maybe I should just wait

Perhaps it will come to me
I hope it remembers my face
In the future where I will wait

But what about now?
Life does not slow down

I won't last till then
If I'm killed by the present
How do I get past it?
Where is my catharsis?

How do I hide my worries?
Can anyone tell me?
Is it even a reality?

Don't lose your heart
Embrace your dreams
You can conquer anything
You just need a spark

Don't forget your dreams
They guide you through life
You will certainly fail
But you will always have your heart

I guess it takes patience
To meet my catharsis

I hope it will find me
After I have changed
Then I will feel free

That is a personal hurdle
But what about the rest of the world?
Our ugly hearts have never been tamed
When will love **** hate?

How do I end this misery?
Can anyone tell me?
Is it even a possibility?

Don't lose your heart
Embrace your dreams
You will be wrong
But one day you'll understand

Don't forget your dreams
They guide you through life
Even when hate kills love
You will always have your heart

There's a finite amount of time
When will I find Cloud 9?

Ask a question today
But don't contemplate
The answer is in the future
First, you have to get there

Yesterday is done
But it may still haunt

Today is uncertain
But the night shall end it

And when time has shifted
Tomorrow will become a promise

Don't lose your heart
Embrace your dreams
You will understand
As time comes to pass

You don't get to decide
What will be your Cloud 9
That is strictly up to time

Don't forget your dreams
They guide you through everything
Even when you and death meet
Your heart will bid us farewell
With one final beat

Standing on cloud 9 because you've joined your hand in mine.
And as the sun steps down to let the moon come out to play, we get ready to dance the night away.
Here in your arms, you make me feel safe and warm.
Here in your arms, I'm forever yours. Faithfully.
Yes I was listening to journey when I came up with this. I've been writing a lot about death and depression lately but thought I'd make a happy poem. And what better way to get inspired about love than journey

If I had a way to free my mind I would be drug free.
I'm having counseling with my therapist lit talking freely & this beautiful quote is spoken, she compliments my mind & I agree so I vent.

i’m like dynamite-
need a cheerleader,
let me throw you down
while i look at her-

i’m like, “oh, my god,
“i think i need a girlfriend.”
have you ever paid attention to the sky?
i sure have
every car ride
every walk outside
everytime im sad
i look to the clouds above.

the clouds have feelings
they, just like us, get sad
and frustrated at times
but they are kind to us down below
they reward us with their beauty

they are similar to us with one more thing
they too, like most of us, have a best friend
i bet they share secrets
and stories
right as they're going to bed behind the city skyline
together they make the perfect team to bring smiles all around

when the colors of the sun
and the grace of the clouds
bleed together
it puts our hearts at ease
next time,
just look up.

Blissful bliss,
What a thing,
Such a kiss.

Passion and obsession,
Could almost go hand in hand,
Feelings put to submission.

Around and around they go,
Where they will break,
Nobody could know.

A calm summer breeze,
The smell of flowers in the air,
Small bits of glimmering hair fly.

Nothingness, simple bliss,
Passionate encounters,
Softened kiss.

No thoughts, no cares.
No worries, no pain.
Nothing but lips within the night.

Slowly building,
They do not wish to end,
A passionate encounter,
Their hearts begin to mend.

Passion has the power,
Passion is the drive,
Passion can take them anywhere,
And it can make all feel alive.

it'll blow your mind; it'll make you do things, you normally wouldn't. This thing called Love has a hold over you!
After you fall, whose gonna catch you? To fall in Love is chance; you down to gamble? Love has you blind.. But, eye promise; when you fall.. Eye'll be there to catch you.
Love is crazy... Amazing!
I wanna make love
Under the moonlight
I wanna feel her glittering rays
caress every inch of my body
elevate my soul
*To devour my being.

Its something I realize everyday
And each time I think about it, there's so much to say
You always make me smile
I've got xoxo with your name on papers all in a pile

Everything I say to you I really do mean
You make me the happiest human being
Your someone whom I cannot get out of my mind
So please say you'll forever be mine

No one can ever love you like I do
And I hope the feeling is mutual too
Hold my hand and don't break my heart
I knew you were for me right from the start

My heart is singing a love song
Its telling a story of us
I may be right or wrong
But our love is built on faith and trust

I gave you all of me
And you gave me all of you
Whatever happens let it be
And believe in us like I do

And out of the blue
I think about how much I love you

— The End —
