Caution: Objects in poems are deeper than they appear.

The more shallow it looks, the deeper it is.

I forever stand with you
even if it's till our dreams end
if I told you to stay in
would you break my little rotten apple?
Just cause' you ended up in a grave?
Look at the end and read the end words :)
Today it would’ve been your birthday.
I would’ve made a handmade card for you as always
signed with a “love you” phrase and painted bouquets
together with some real tulips.
It would’ve been a perfect day.

But it is not the same this year,
I am alone and you’re not there.
God had another plan.

You taught me to be brave
and faced with trouble never to complain.
Even while fighting so much pain
you were a rainbow after rain.
You taught me on a stormy day to be a wave.

But it is not the same this year,
I am alone and you’re not there.
And out of habit I have made your card.
For my aunt

I’ll kiss whoever I’m with tonight
to take you off of my mind.
It’s not the first time
that I’m fighting to keep you out,
but I don't wanna close my eyes.
In the dark you’re all that I see.
He’s laying in my bed but I'm staring at the ceiling, reminiscing you.

I’ll make out with three strangers tonight.
None of them will make it back to my room
but if they did it still wouldn’t matter,
I just don't wanna be alone at times.
Need to feel someone else on me,
so I can stop feeling you,
so I can forget you.

Cause I’d run to you
even if you were just a mirage.
And I’d follow you,
Through a desert.
Through a blizzard.
Through the eye of a hurricane.
I’d run to you!

and it’s been six months,
we still haven't talked.
I don't know anything!
I miss being your everything.
Tonight I’m all alone,
no one touching me, I’m on my own.
I tried the hook-up thing but couldn’t keep pretending.
When I look in their eyes I just see yours, blue and green.
Where did you go?
Why’d you stop loving me?

It doesn’t matter
If I never get an answer.
If you hit me up one day
I’ll still remember your voice,
but I’ll also remember
how pathetic you made me feel.
Alone even when we were together,
looking back is bittersweet.
Fond memories and love,
welled up fears and disappointment.
I’ll always remember you, love.
But I won’t go running back,
even if I want to,
I won’t go running back.

but I hope that you do
I hope you’d run back to me too.

although the years have come and gone,
still my heart aches
each year, it repeats
the same pain in my chest
at first so slow i almost don't notice it
quietly dripping in the distance
like a leaky faucet
and suddenly i remember your smile,
your laugh, your curls
and as if Zeus himself struck me,
the ache in my heart returns.
overcome with emotions
all i can do is sit and cry
and i mourn you all over again.
and yet you're still breathing.
and i should have let go already.
it happens around the same time each year.
sometimes it comes a few weeks early,
sometimes it's right on the nose...
i know it's all rose coloured glasses
i know it's all a fantasy i cling to.
just know, i pray for you still
i pray that you're happy and at peace
i pray that life is good to you
i have no selfish bone left in my body for you,
but one.
only one that somehow prays
that you'll find me
and tell me it wasn't a lie...
so that we can go back to loving from a distance.
this year it came early,
the ache, like a car crash.
so forgive me for being early in saying this..

and i know you probably don't miss me
or ache over me like i do for you...
but i loved you once,
i love you still
i always have
and always will..


happy birthday tj

today, i dont want to do anything. just stay in the dark living room in my pj's and read some of your poetry.

too bad i also did that yesterday.

****.
this site has so many nice people on it who are so supportive for everyone. love you all
Your green eye looks down
with shyness,
Brown eye looks up
with confidence.

Green eye contains empathy
to support,
Brown eye with focus
to find solutions for problems

Pair of brown eyes
shut up shop for every delicate kiss,
Pair of green eyes
stare intensively into my soul and heart.

Start of dates is introduction of chartreuse eyes,
Letting me in, not judging my stutter,
End of dates the evaluating chocolate eyes,
Silly but, one mistake, you’ll ask for the bill.

I’m apologising through poetry
for yesterday’s date
‘Cause your pair of different coloured eyes
made me panicked!
I got game plan when your beautiful eyes deny synchronicity. So i just have to be me.

You are my strength when I am weak
You are the treasure that I seek
You are my all in all
When I was alone I felt dead inside, since you came into my life I feel like a living being,

Have never loved anyone the way I love you
You're God sent
Heavens made, earthly melani,

My sunshine, the star in me
Your eyes gazed at me,
I will never kiss and tell
Your heart is loyal
My love will never judge you

You're a wife material
The mother to my unborn babies
One touch you release the stress in me
I will never ever deny this
Moyin the heart that never breaks,

falling in love with you
Is never a mistake
Being with you is always my dream come through
Your body and soul is loyal to me

Your kiss makes me feel like I'm levitating,
Your touch makes me to escalate,
When I'm with you I feel much loved than anything.
Dedicated to my lovely girlfriend #MoyinoluwaEsther

It must be hard. I understand you.
To smile while you're hurting. Just know it's okay.
You can cry when you need to
I will hear you.
It's okay to show people your weak side
It's okay to stay awake sometimes
Just know that I am here for you
Don’t worry, just let it go.

It must be just a passing thunder-storm, it will wear out soon.
Just trust me, everything will be all right.
It must be hard, yes I don’t know you, but I will understand you.
Just cry if you want to, you don’t have to worry
Just trust me
It will be okay.

Just shout to me when you can't take it anymore
I will spare you half the burden you're carrying.
I will be here, to understand you
So don’t worry.

Show me yourself, just cry if you need to
I will hear you.
Show me your weak side, I will understand you.
Not everyone can keep the wall up
If you want to sleep, you can.
Lose yourself in your dreams and wake up with me.

Dry your eyes. The sky is sad.
Your eyes are sad, keep them dry.
Trust me it will pass soon.
I'll be here for you, so don’t worry.
Lean on me, don’t worry.
i dont know how helpful this is, but i try. smile for me, then smile for yourself, okay? :)
