You breathing next to me

Is the only love song

I will ever need

Did universe ask you to lie to me
by saying you don't love me
to give me another life lesson?

"One day, you'll grow up
And you'll make a lot of friends
Or maybe you won't
Maybe you'll just have a few tight buddies
But if anyone tries to change you
you don't need them
You're amazing the way you are"
I told her

She looked up at me
With large, doeful eyes
Nuzzled me and mooed as if to say
"I'm not sure what you just said
But I think I understood it"
As I rubbed her head and ears

At least I can give life advice to a Jersey heifer
Before my program ends and I go back home

comme un oiseau,
Elle vole de ses propres ailes.

her silhouette is black against the evening blue of the sky,
the breeze as gentle as her whispered words.

Le vent souffle doucement
Aussi lente que les saisons passent.

and just like a bird,
she flits above the treetops, her chicks left at home in the nest.

Mais comme un oiseau vole,
elle ne peut pas voler longtemps

but every little bird, no matter how brave
must return home.

I wrote this poem so that I tells the reader three poems;
the first: in English, tells the story of a mother-figure, having dream-like experiences.
the second: in French, tells us of how she struggles to keep going
the third: the whole poem is about her needing space from her family, her life, because she's struggling, but that she just can't stay away for ever.
this poem is entirely about the readers interpretation.

10:38 p.m., his black hair is curled, tangled like straw.
The stress & fatigue of the day
has built this bird's nest upon his head
that messily tickles my neck at this late hour.

10:38 a.m., his hair is delicately flowed across the pillow,
Like wind softly brushing out a meadow.
All it took was sleep and dreams
to recycle the nest of straw back into smooth meadow grass

Which falls over me with his arm as we wake.

i love his long hair

You are not a diamond
Not something to be locked in a case
Stared at
You are not a diamond
You are a rock, you are stability
You are bricks and mortar
I would build a home with you
You are not a diamond, hard and cold
You are breakfast in the morning
Kisses before falling asleep
You are not a diamond
Not some shiny stone
You do not reflect light
You emit it, you are the sun with a smile
A star that laughs
You are not a diamond

Whispers fall on the garden of eternity,
where eyes blossom gazing forth into nothing .

Petals  kiss with lips of pollen into the void,
sunny days extinct within a breath of moments.

Cute were the last cries of luminosity echoing intimately  
as they surrendered, like raindrops in the gardens of eternity.

fell from her home
Skies of ohio
stumbled from a cloud
Grew her wings on the way down

hellboy in the back pew
cigarettes, blue dress shoes
closed her bible, "I refuse"
She said, "To be a mans property"

honeybee spread your wings
neither bird nor angel,
she flys free.

"I'll take the skills to cook and clean
our sneezes will still sound the same
I'll vist on holidays
but don't you fucking bless me"

"I'll be Domestic for myself
clean home and the best of health
Foster bees
a book to read.
But the bible ain't for me."

Somewhere in the inbetween
apartment on deering st

she met me
at a speakeasy
"if you want me you better find me
Through the bookshelves I'll be waiting"

I turn the pages
Find her wedding ring
kept under the mattress,
not even god as a witness.

Doctor in ireland, she told me

escape in comic books
while he's away.

"Before we start, you have to know
One day I'll leave forever
Let's live a life we won't forget
In the meantime, together."

"I live with no one to respond to.
I live without boundary.
My ride or die resides in ireland
I'd like to love you while he waits for me."

I've never tasted honey so sweet
Honeybee, Come lay with me

A few kisses later
cross legged in an office chair
sipping warm tea
I wake
green eyes watching me sleep
It's these moments
in between

were those mornings just a dream?
Honey bee
Honey bee
you leave

Remember me
in the old and green
you were always free
guiness jogs my memory
The little things

LeBobbe Jul 6

A curly-haired girl smiled at me.
Not knowing that my heart skipped a beat.
She wandered the corridors so care-free.
While I waited on the other side for a greet.

I stared at her eyes and it glittered.
Time stood still and the space around her blurred.
It took a moment for me to realize.
That she's looking at my eyes that stared.

I didn't felt butterflies but fireworks in my stomach.
My face turned red and sweat started to drip.
She waved her hand , I waved back
And with a smiled face I said, "Hi".

You know that moment when you see your crush and you just struggled to say hi.

You plucked my heartstrings so gently,
        yet it vibrates to the depths of my soul.
You make my heart sing and my feet dance,
        still being careful not to fall.
