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

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'

Lying here on my bed
It was you in my head
Everywhere I see your face
It was you I'll embrace
Your scent I smell  
It was you all I can tell
D*mn I feel so cold
It was you I want to hold
Craving for your love
It was you all I want to have.
What was once numb. Now feels the soft embrace of an angel. That which heals all scares and wounds. Eyes that were blinded by tears and blood, now gaze into a beauty that could only be described as a horizon of supernovas reflecting above an emerald tinted ocean. Ears tormented by the ridicule and screams of those superior, suddenly serenaded by a voice so soft and comforting it was as if peace in its purest form was speaking. Lips, the same that would spout Black blood and nonsense, are now sealed, in the warm lock of another pair. A mind clouded by hatred and insanity, is overflowing, filled with thoughts and feelings just waiting to be portrayed through actions and meticulously planned sentences. All concluding with the same three words,
"I love you".
A pulse, beating inside, a heart. For once, no feeling of anger, or depression. Just happiness, just love. Just her.
Call it love or obsession, either way, it can be taken too far. I'm sorry.
