I am unfinished.
I am not yet me.
I am not complete.

I am not who I was yesterday.
I am afraid of who I’ll be tomorrow.
I am unrecognizable.

This is not my face.
There are not my hands.
These are not my words.

I am a paradox.
I do not exist.
I am hidden from myself.

I am joy.
I am pain.
I am an enigma.

How do I know who I am
when that fact changes
every day
every hour
every minute

Do I exist as a point
or as a timeline

I am who I will be in twenty years
and as the little girl who held up
three fingers when she said
the word five.

I am a mystery.
I am an open book.
I am myself.
Pretend the formatting saved.

Love was a feral creature,
Something to be avoided,
Something to be feared...

For I believed it only brought;
Pain, Destruction and Loss...

Long had I stayed away,
Caging myself in,
void of emotions...

But then,
YOU,
came into my life...
you tamed the beast
and showed me,
it wasn't all that bad...

You came in,
and...
made me believe in,
"LOVE"

You enveloped me in your caring arms,
I embraced your heart without a thought...

And now,
when I think of love,
I think of....
YOU!

This poem was inspired by a Webtoon comic (Freaking Romance by Snailords) I read! Hope y'all will like it ♥

I used to
lay on the lonely bed,

Longing for your warm embraces.
Thinking of how when your arms wrap around me,
My whole body goes into a state of inexplicable euphoria...

About those lustful kisses
Dripping with passion,
Your lips crashing against mine,
As a faint moan escapes my lips...

Played had I continuously in my mind
these memories
before,

And I wish I could say that,
Our time was the best...

But baby,
I have realised...

I love myself more than you!

Who'd believe those eyes?
One made from alabaster
Whose mind is gullible?
You are the sun in the solar system,
Somehow pulling everyone into your orbit.
Even passer by asteroids like myself
Get captured and entranced
By the gravitas of your enigma.
Forever stuck in the same trajectory,
Always circling back to you.
How do you do it?
for john. this is based on a joke he made that was weird but funny.
My eyes glistens and sparkles louder than the stars
They caress gentler that the morning breeze
And roar louder than the oceans
Flooding my soul with understanding
My tongue is soothing like the calm before the storm
It builds just as great as it annihilates
The very core of the universe quakes at the sound of my voice
Setting loose the forces of life
As the thirsty grounds are quenched
I absorb heartily
Discernment is my filter
I am a spirit and my life is a conundrum to many
I blow to and fro and many cannot fathom
My ways are a mystery
Call me Enigma

Outside inward I feel
otherwise backward reveal
sanitize my verse and seal
decompress and sell it as a pill

Distance fades all things known to exist. All matter, all memory consumed by the horizon. We live in chasm between the past and the future where the only clarity is now. This enigma is intrinsic to our theoretical realities. That is unless we move with our eyes closed. Maintaining the vibrancy of the ruins in our path. Retaining unobscured echoes from all who came before.
