Under the bluish yellow marble sky I introduce my soul to the demon & angels
By the lemons tree I've unleashed my hair unbutton my blouse And cried as if my teacher called me the black girl
I will call to the 1st passing girl: Slow down please, wait for me Rise me up by my arms like a little girl
Plait 2 branches of your hair for me To walk over the world's cold grass And lie down in front the sea Forget the stars - she said Forget the sea - I said
We have left the world cough its smoke of poisoned kids' toys And cast the residuals of cosmetics and tore bras Into this sacred sea
So come with me Delete all of my past contacts smash my mobile phone by your shoe's heel And let's vanish from this world Toward shiny white space Toward inky smell books Toward white skies and pink kisses Toward infinite daylight For you and for me.
I have never really understood what love really meant until you showed me. There is not one time where I feel alone or afraid in the midst of your love You love me enough to make me want to clear out the mess that I have been hoarding at the back of my mind The mess of the past that I haven’t had the courage to clean As much as these memories pain me, I hold onto them. I think maybe if I push them so far back they will never resurface again Or maybe it’s because that painful “love” was all I knew and so I am holding on to it But these theories mean nothing to me. Nothing seems to make sense to me but when I’m with you everything seems clear. Even when the conflict in my mind seems to be the only thing I can hear, I can look at you once and feel at ease.
Though everything I loved had been stolen from me by a person who claimed to love me Your love was able to revive the hopeless and dying pieces I was left with into something even more beautiful for me to love. You showed me the joy in music You revived the romance in me You’ve turned my sad poems into happy ones And although I will always remain a hopeless romantic, a dreamer You’ve transformed me into a hope full romantic Someone who is full of hope for the future.
I can never seem to phrase my sentences but somehow when I talk to you it comes together You bring my whole life together. The missing piece of my puzzle. Thinking about you makes my chest hurt sometimes and as I write the pain lingers You make me feel so many emotions at once that my body reacts in the only way it has been accustomed to and that is feeling pain But the more I think about you, the more i see only joy, no pain and no sadness And the pain subsides and is replaced by butterflies in my stomach And I am petrified of butterflies but because they are a product of your love, I have grown to love them myself. And I am petrified of loving someone as deeply as I do you but because the product of your love for me is joy in my life, I want to be the source of joy in yours.
A home is where one should feel most comfortable And I was never able to understand the proverb of home is where the heart is but you’ve made a home for my heart comfortably with yours and now everything seems clear. My heart resides with you and so my home is you. And I know that this is dangerous territory I am walking on because now you have all the power to take my heart and shatter it But this risk I’m willing to take because for your love I would give you my heart to shatter a thousand times over and over again.
But you, my love, are only capable of good. The love you have for me, for others is enough proof of that. You took an empty and broken vessel and turned it into something full of life. You’ve turned my sleepless nights into something other than just me flooding my sorrows into my pillow case You’ve turned the thought of my future into something other than just my survival, something other than just “making it another day” You are who I owe all my progress to because since you’ve walked into my life you’ve been the only reason why I want to do well. And, my love, when I tell you that I love you I mean it.
I don't know another way to cry, Than to write down my blood sprawled on the ground, I can't think of another way out, Than to be striped down of my walls, I will lay bare and say to them how everything made no sense and at the same time, I won't be afraid to love again.
They call them dream catchers The ones that steal you away They're hidden inside the pretty girls Written on they're smiles Twisted in they're spines You can never really tell when they have you wrapped up in there web They're hidden like a black rose in a red bouquet Tossed to the curb worthless n fake Dream catchers will caress you in a safety net of sweet sleep They'll fill you with feelings They'll make you feel safe But dream catchers never give back the dreams built up by days and later by nights She'll ****** you to stay and then she'll make you want to run away Dream catchers are often gorgeously framed There beauty is like no others they're beauty reals you in Not knowing there silently hiding under cover Lay low for awhile cover up words with a smile Don't give in to the **** they pass off as trust They only have one goal in mind It's only a matter of time They'll slip into your life sneak into your room they'll be waiting on your bed blending in with the seams They look like Pretty girls and there Trying to catch your dreams
