She is the best thing
My mind can see
Long amethyst waves
An unscarred wrist
Talking sometimes
I can hear her voice
In silent letters
Through the phone
And now what she is
Is a beautiful presence
A lovely evanescence
That sleeps with me
And guides my dreams
From miles away
With her blender fish tank
Someday I fear
All that she will be
Is a ghost of a dream
Forever lost to me
I've had two dreams about her now.

Nothing ever lasts forever
the new height, the length greater
the chances all the slimmer
Winning is worse than ever
The very pressure all time higher
it is easier to fall over
but to forget and do what to be done
and fall down now than later
seems better.

nothing lasts forever, good or bad, so take in all the good, and don't sweat the bad

Our connection was intense
Our kiss was toxic but sweet
The colour of your eyes was like autumn
I was so keen
I was all in

Our bond was strong
Filled with pure alcohol
And when I got sober
I saw clearly the end
You pointed it out for me

I followed your arrow
I followed your footsteps
And you led me to the exit
Now I need a compass
To get the hell out of your soul

Nothing lasts forever, doesn't?

She's trouble so they say
She'll slay your heart
Tear it apart
Never mind her history
She's a mystery
Neglected as a child
Emotional abuse
she hates men
Does she have a reason?

behind her eyes lesions and cuts to her soul
Though they call her **** and say she's out of control
She yearns and burns for a man who will calm her inner being
See the hurting girl inside who's trapped in her own head
Instead of taking her to bed for a one night stand
A love that hold her through the lonely hours
A love that will never sour
Or grow cold
Or scold her for being her
A love that inspires fire
That comforts her
and talks her through agonising visions of the past
A love that lasts.

I'm only 18 so call this meaningless
I'll tell you I've been in love on at least four separate occasions
with at least four separate girls.
Say that it wasn't really love then
that I was too young and naive to know
what love truly is.
You have every right to believe that if you want.
But to me, each and every one of those times
It truly was love and honestly still is.
I guess it's that they just don't feel it anymore.
I'll doubtlessly fall in love so many more times over
and cry on so many friends shoulders over having my heart broken
but if this is the path I must take to find a truer love than I have ever experienced before than so be it.

I want a love that burns with a passion and intensity so bright
that most others would be burnt up in its light....



Is this too much to ask?...
I want to make somebody feel special and beautiful and wonderful and like they mean something. Like they're somebody's reason for getting out of bed in the morning. The first thought in my head when I wake up in the morning and the last image in my mind before I fall asleep.

I'm not too complicated. I'm really simple, honestly. Just tell me you love me and be faithful. Let me be there for you and let me show you that through all the difficulties in life that some things are worth going overboard for. I want 2 am car rides to Wendy's for frosties and a midnight bonfire in the country as we watch the stars and try to decide which one most resembled the twinkle in the others eye.

wE wOuLd DaNcE iN thE reFriGeratOr ligHts
aS iF nO oNe wAs watching and SING SONGS
NO ONE EVER KNEW AT THE TOP OF OUR LUNGS
WITHOUT EVER pausing to bReAtHe BECAUSE
SUFFOCATION IS NEVER A PROBLEM WHEN YOU
HAVE OXYGEN AND YOU WERE MY LIFETIME SUPPLY
WE WOULD GET H I G H OFF OF
CIGARETTE DAYDREAMS THAT WOULD NEVER BURN OUT
AND ON SNOWFLAKES THAT WOULD NEVER MELT bUT I GUESS
FOREVER ALWAYS MEANT SOMETHING DIFFERENT
TO YOU BECAUSE yOu  hAVE MET SOMEONE ELSE AND
YOU SAY SHE REMINDS YOU
OF ME BECAUSE SHE LAUGHS A CERTAIN
TYPE OF WAY AND LOVES YOU ENDLESSLY
(oops she didn't tell you that yet did she?)
AND I ALREADY KNOW YOU DON'T FEEL THE
SAME WAY BECAUSE YOU NEVER DO AND
I DON'T EVEN KNOW THAT GIRL BUT IF SHE IS
ANYTHING LIKE ME LIKE YOU SO OFTEN CLAIM
THEN pLeAsE dO nOt bReAk hEr
sHe dOESN'T DESERVE IT SHE DESERVES TO BREATHE
OXYGEN NOT CARBON DIOXIDE SHE DESERVES TO
GET HIGH OFF OF HAPPINESS AND NOT AN ASHTRAY
SHE DESERVES A FOREVER and you will never be able
to give it to her, because forever will never mean
the same thing to you.

i actually like this one
It was so hard not to kiss you

Our lips have always been magnetic 

I knew you were watching me as I spun 

Around and around and around

And I told you
I don't get dizzy
Until I stop spinning
Akhil Bhadwal Sep 2015
Cheese, say it and be happy
Mourn, do it and be sad
Play, until you die
Treachery, until you lie

Slay, the eternal demon
Hail, to fire
May, you knew the truth
Bitten, by fate's tooth

Hey, yell with all
Energy, until you fall
Live, to die soon
Death, with a deafening boom
