The Heart is greater than the eyes,

for the heart, amidst all the pain,

sees through the delicate lenses of beauty.



The Heart is superior over the ears,

for the heart, amid all the loud noise,

listens to the softest whispers of humanity.



The Heart is bigger than the nose,

for the heart, among all of the scents,

smells the fragrance of new life.



The Heart is larger than the hands,

for the heart, amongst all that it can do,

touches in a way that is softer than the dawn’s dew.



The Heart is superior to the tongue,

for the heart, with all of its might,

speaks only the sweet letters of kindness.



The Heart is more immense than all of the human senses,

for the heart carries so much love,

it can lighten up the face of the whole universe.

I'll remember the time,
When your words and smile,
Made me new.

It makes my chest sink,
In agony of what could have been.
A love I wanted to give,
That fell, pointlessly.

I still fell for her,
Even when she told me not to.

I'll remember the time,
When the words that escaped my lips,
felt like the perfect me.
Now only letters remind me of her voice,
Poetry for me.

When every word I used was for her,
And they ran out.
A drift of space,
A burning drought.

I'll remember the time,
When I told myself to stop writing about you.
If you feel something for someone, tell them.

A
All along, all artificial.
Ask another an answer:
Are any arguments ascertained?
L
Life's legislation:
Loving lets live losing,
Losses limitless, life's lonely.
P
Philosophy problematizes peace.
Particularly perceived peace.
Poor pure people paying prices.
H
His heart hurts, hopes he'll heal.
He hears her hopeless hollers,
He'll help her.
A
Another's all alone,
Arranged all alike,
After aforementioned agony?
B
Both bodies, both brains,
Both beloved, both believing,
Both belonging.
E
Evil's elements exists everywhere,
Enveloping every entrance, every exit.
Everything ecstatic eventually ends.
T
Their tones too tender, their time too transitory.
They thoughtfully told themselves:
'Til tomorrow turns today.
Had a lot of fun writing this with the restrictions I imposed. If anyone has cool ideas for poem rules send me a message.

what happened to romance?
to those sappy, sappy, hand written letters?
to those songs that started with something more than words could describe?
to those dozens of unsent poems declaring my undying love for you and only you?
what happened to it now?
what happened to them?
still waiting in the dark and wanting to be read out loud for the world to know,
to hear what my heart and soul still yearns for --- you.
i tried
Envelop me like the love letters we would write each other when I was away,
like the blankets we would wrap up in to stay warm in those polar nights.
When the heater was broken
and everything was frozen we would keep eachother safe.
I love you Madeline Campbell. I hope you have an amazing Birthday today!

I stare at words
I remember nothing
Written instructions
Is the bane of my existence?
It puts me back
To solving word problems
In school
A combination of letters
And numbers
Lost in translation
My mind is blank
And hopelessly lost
Unable to compute
These letters
And numbers

(1) When I first held your hand, I've never felt so secured in my life. I've always shared to tell you thoughts only I had said to myself in my head. I have only shown you apart of me that is forbidden for anyone else to know. Yet, still I found myself hiding this feeling from you. So here's the big secret.

(2) Every time you told me how much my worth was or how much I mattered, I couldn't help but cry. Do you know how it feels to have purpose in this world when you can’t even come to mind as to why you should get up every morning. Why do this and do that. So I thank you for this.

(3) Water isn’t wet, you idiot
(4) I have nothing to lose

(5) “I will angelize you when I die” . one of my favorite quotes said by Velimir Khlebnikov

(6) You cannot control this. Just like how you can't control the flowers to stop from blooming in the spring. It was bound for me to fall like the leaves of a brisk October afternoon. It is too overwhelming. And this is meant to be.

(7) Please do me a big favor and just watch Pulp Fiction, you won’t regret it
(8) Remember how innocent we were when we were kids? There was a time where a bottle of ***** was a bottle of coke and a sweet kiss on the cheek wasn't ***. What about how there was nothing as tall as you, not even Mount Everest, could ever compare to how high your dad held you up on his shoulders.


(9) The truth in happiness is not the matter of how much we have, but its how we can really enjoy

(10) Sometimes I am too quiet for this world, everyone else has their own symphony going on while I can’t even help myself ring a **** bell


(11) It’s ******* hard when you can’t have things your way

(12) I wish I had the guts to be the person I always wanted to be, but half of me was terrified and thats not entirely my fault. You can’t blame me cause the way I grew up I was way too familiar to suppressing myself to anything bigger.
(13) I got a box shoved under my bed with all my favorite photos and all the letters I’ve collected through the holidays. yes, you have permission to look inside. I know as quiet or as closed I can be at least with these items you can freely think something more of me.

(14)  At the end of the day I don’t regret anything

(15) I love you
