I have to admit,
I want you,
I want you so bad,
I want your positive energy
You´re strenghts,
Your kindness,
Your selflessness,
Your ambition,
Your passion,
I want to look into your blue eyes,
Hold onto your strong arms,
I´ve never been so sure about wanting something,
Do you feel the same way,
Do you want me like I want you,
I have to know..
I can’t help but want you the same way the ocean reaches for the shore.
The way the rain begs to fall,
The sun needs to shine,
The words thirst to be read.
I want your lips,
Because they remind me of when I was finally allowed to love you.
I can still feel them, I hope that never fades.
I want your hands,
Because they held mine all the times I couldn’t stop shaking. When I laid on the ground with tears streaming down my face, they took all the fears away.
I want your arms,
Well, I wish I could be completely wrapped up in your arms,
Because they were soft & safe & made me feel like I could breathe for the first time.
I woke up terrified four times that night, each time wanting to scream and cry and throw myself off of anything high.
But I opened my eyes and saw that you were still holding me. The next time, the next time, and the next. You never moved. Each time the fear got stronger, your grip felt tighter.
Closer.
Warmer.
Safer.
Sometimes I’m so cold in my own loneliness,
But I wouldn’t mind being cold together.
I couldn’t imagine being warm any way else.
I surround myself with people and distract myself in any way I can, but I’m still just as lonely until I see you.
I never stop thinking of you.
When I’m working,
When I’m grocery shopping,
When I’m cleaning,
When I’m driving,
I just want to be next to you.
I want you to infinity, to the millionth degree.
I would give you every. part. of. me.
I love you, but more than just getting to kiss you.
I love the way you live your life.
I love when you have to pop your hip in, even though I know it’s uncomfortable.
It’s funny. Because it’s a part of you.
And I love every part of you.
I love when you’re unbelievably high maintenance,
When you drive around with no plan in mind,
When you go off on crazy rants and tangents,
When you repeat your famous quotes for the millionth time,
When you make me try crazy things,
When you’d laugh because I ate the steak faster than you.
I love when we talk, but I don’t mind when the long drives are silent, either.
I just like to know that I’m with you wherever you’re going.
I’m always up for errands, too. Anything to stretch out the time just a little bit longer.
I love watching you drink nasty egg whites, ruining your coffee, because I know it’s making you healthy and better. It makes me calm knowing you are okay.
I love when you whistle to your favorite songs,
When you stand next to the water and let the salty air fill your lungs, and the setting sun cure your eyes and sway you to sleep.
I love your fluffy hair and tired eyes when you wake up.
The morning I first saw that on the day we all went to the beach, I thought:
“Oh my God, that is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.”
I ran off on the shore and cried so hard that day, just hoping I’d feel arms wrap around me and know it was you.
When you walk in, my heart beats differently.
Everyday I drown in your ocean
Sinking as deep as I can,
Filling every inch of my lungs
With every drop of you.
How amazing it is to find someone who wants to hear all the things that go on in your head.
I would give up my whole life for you,
Go live on a ranch in Ireland in a cozy hut eating so much butter and living the simplest life.
Wake up slow.
Spend days long.
Spend nights longer.
Let the cold weather keep us inside all day,
Let the warm weather travel us all over the place.
In company together, in isolation together.
The thing is though, I wouldn’t really be giving up my life for that. You’d be giving up yours.
I’ve never seen you cry, but I hope you never do because of me.
I will never be angry at you, just as I will never call you the source of any pain.
Don’t you know?
You are the only reason I stayed.
Every single time I wanted to **** myself, you were the first person I thought of. By just the mere thought of you, you stopped me.
I want you but I can’t have you.
And in ways, that makes it seem impossible to live life. In other ways, it makes me want to flee the country and start everything over and leave everyone behind, but I know I’d wish I could just be close to you even if it meant I never get to give you my love again.
****, here come the tears.
I finally get why they say “if you love someone, let them go.”
Because if you really love them, you’ll want what’s best for them. For their family and their job and their life.
Your happiness means everything to me.
I will listen for your voice in the distance,
Keep you in my pocket,
Carry your smile with me everywhere.
I smell early morning you
Every time I drink tea.
I take a pause before I sip,
Thinking of sleepy cuddles.
You fill my lungs and I gulp it down.
I smell late evening you
On the cloth of my backpack.
I take a pause before I throw you over my shoulder,
Everything you are I breathe you in,
And carry you everywhere.
I update my playlist at night
With songs that remind me of you,
Tunes that sway me to sleep
Because you can’t be here to.
Your arms are missing,
So I grab more sheets, now I'm held tight.
The fan blows to replace your steady breathing,
The soft exhales on my neck.
I have my pillow a little higher
To fit your arm underneath,
I've got your body,
Now all I need is a sound.
Something to be the heart that isn't here.
I can almost feel you,
But not enough.
So I update my playlist,
It's the only way I'll sleep.
Wow, they really do write novels about this.
I just love you, okay?
And I know I’m not supposed to.
So I will do everything I can to make sure you don’t fall in love with me.
I will protect you and everything you’ve built until the day I die.
But I will always dream of you and wish you were mine.
Ok that rhymed. That signals the end of this novel.
I love you.
I have the heart of a racehorse
The second you are near.
You make me turn bright red
I slow my breathing out of fear.
My heartbeat is so loud
I don't want you to hear.

You affect me.
I feel like I've done an 100m dash.
Those brown eyes,
Smoulder like coals amongst ash.
They set fire to my soul,
I've never wanted to do something so brash...

Cold hands.
Warm heart.
A quiet word in my ear,
You make speaking an art.
After hours with you,
I can't bear to be apart.

I was stupid...
I pulled away.
It was for good reason and yet,
I will always hate the day
When I realised that
I am shattered clay.

I took such solace in simply
Sleeping on your shoulder.
You chased away nightmares
As my dreams grew colder.
I've never been more grateful
For my own knight-in-shining-armour.

But I can't let you mend me.
It isn't how I was made.
I don't know God's Plan,
All I know is that I can't fade.
It is not my time to leave this Earth
And make the soul trade.

It is a strange thing to realise too late
That you love someone.
You can't control it.
You got caught up in the fun.
Before you know it, time flies by
And you only know when it's done.

I've come to know
That I cannot just come up with a rhyme
To make this all feel better.
We were together for such a short time,
And yet, all I saw was a future together.
Thinking about this should be a crime.

I let you go,
A huge mistake.
And every time I remember,
My heart might just break
And I won't feel this again.
I know it isn't fake.

The more I remember
How things were,
The more I cry .
I thought I was so sure.
I miss you already...
You are my cure.

That isn't a good thing
Is that why I'm in pain?
I shouldn't have let you fix me
It was supposed to be my gain
But now you've gone and done it
That's why I'm standing in this rain.
I have a bad habit of making horrible decisions
Constantia Nov 2018
A strand of blue
Paired for two
A whirlpool of rides
Inside my tie dye eyes

You and me...
we are much different but,
One day you shall see
How the universe wants us to be
She connected us for free
I want to love you endlessly  
Do you agree?
I don't miss you, because the phrase 'I Miss You,'
Doesn't explain how my body aches;
To hold you,
To feel you,
To embrace you.
I yearn for you, 'Cause unlike Superman I can't live without my kryptonite.
I hunger for your voice to echo in my ears,
Simply because it is my favorite symphony.
I search for your fingers to caress mine,
So that they will become vines for ever in twinned.
I thirst for your affection;
Like a black man does for kool-aid.
Like a dying man does for first aid.
I crave for your love,
so hurry up and give me my fix.
I don't miss you.
I want you.

touchy subjects.
hidden mistakes.
crashing thunder.
My heart, the rain.
Plundering down into the mess.
Trying to find hope in the dark.
Crying in a dark place.
trying to fix my mistakes.
fixing mistakes by not trying at all is not the way.
i tried.
but i made it worst.
No day is my day.
it really isn't
i say this not because i am broken or sad.
because isn't it true?
everyday belongs to the one who made it.
HIM.
He gave me another chance to live...
He gave me another day to breathe!
He sees potential in me that he would be willing to give me one more day to live.
When we die it's not that God didn't see the potential in us.
He gave all of us ample time.
Ample time to think.
Ample time to reflect.
Ample time to Love.
Amble time to Hope.
Ample time to help others, serve others.

The thing is.
I need happiness.
A true one.
"the one which would last."
I would ask.
I would want.
the one that would stick.
but surely.
through the storms i have been through.
i can rightfully and truthfully tell you,
that he gives true joy.
One that sticks for eternity.
One that is eternal, that will be.
One that is just so good.
so sweet.
so bliss.
so free...
i want that joy.
and you and i would never find it anywhere in any store.
True Joy.
True peace.
Is found in HIM.
The source.
The ONE.
He is the one I want.
The thing is...I already have him.
Serving him.
Has never been in second place in my "blessings" list.
It is so beautiful.
All of him that I have, would never be in second place of the list.

I want you.
i want you Lord.
More than anything...
that is the desire i want.
i would be willing to go down to my lowest point to find you.
forgive me if i blamed you.
you know best.
you know what is best for me...

They say the squeekiest wheel get fix
And the loudest baby get the attention
But when it comes to love they forgot to mention
That the quiet ones are desperately in need
I yearn fix, I want your attention, Im just discrete
I exsist and want your love, so don’t forget about me.
Deep Fear of opening up to another.  still healing wounds from the last battle I lost. War called Love.

U need a real one
I am that
I am that which will not react
To others persuading
But will be contemplating
Our universes pulsing
And expanding limbs
And open canyons
And oceans floor
Rivers cascading
Rift and pull
U need a real one
I am that
I am that which will have ur back
Ill molten steel
Ill perform the ****
Your protection
Ill be your best friend
And your lover
And your fan
Ill be in ur corner ill be in the stands
You need a real one
I am that
I am that which will be forever
Loyalty is a treasure
If u measure me.... 34 25 36
Im not just tryna make your hit list
Im not just tryna be friends in dis *****
Im not tryna be put on the sidelines
Im tryna be in the inzone
6 digits
And the extra point
Ill make
I could be yours. Im for the take
Take down, take out, taken status
Please get at this
You need a real one
I am that
I am that which you lack.

Tonight I'll fall alseep sleep thinking of you
Tonight I'll dream, and dream of you
Tonight in my dreams you are next to me
Tonight in my dreams you are holding me
Tonight in my dreams you stay by my side
But today
Today you are gone
Today you are not next to me
Today you are not holding me
And today you are not by my side
But I am still thinking of you
I am still dreaming of you
When the lights are on
and the world is I awake
I not on! Im not awake!
My head is gone
My heart is gone
And I cannot wait
For the day that you are not in my head
For the day you do not have my heart
But till then I pray it'll be tonight, since it wasn't today I'm waiting for
tomorrow'
