Brumous 6d
they say that simple is best,
that's why its not a surprise
that I feel so complicated...

Do not tire me
By misreckoning my thoughts
Do not dishonor me
To think free
Unlike you
I fill myself
With flowing goodness
You are incapable of grasping it
Do not turn me into a goner
By the dark clouds of ignorance that
dwell inside you
Do not despise me
For being a sui generis
If you can’t fathom my benevolence
You are naïve
Nikki May 22
we're all so foolishly desperate to be someone's perfect and in their eyes only.
Chrissy Ade May 18
You've taken a step into dangerous territory
Unbeknownst to your wide, naïve eyes
You're heading into a deep abyss
Where only the lucky have survived
Before you proceed any further
I will give you this warning now
I'm utterly and dangerously fragile
And my patience is running out
My warning signs are on full display
For those who dare on this journey
Caution is written everywhere
So that I know you won't take this lightly
I see the longing looks you're giving
And I can tell you see me as a challenge
Your cockiness will lead to your missteps
A guarantee I experience irrevocable damage
You think you will treat me different
But I know you'll ignore the signs I carry
There's no easy way to let my guard down
When your intentions with me make me wary
You continue to walk into dangerous territory
Unbeknownst to your wide, naïve eyes
Foolishly, you jumped into the deep abyss
But you were not lucky enough to survive
Watch your step

i know that we were young and naïve
and our promises were vague
but i assure you, when i said

"i will love you until the end of time"
i spoke with my whole heart
dangling on a line

had I been older I'd've
probably'd've recognized
the hell in your eyes
but I mistook it for love

had I been wiser then
as I ought to have been
I'd've known the sin
of what'd been done
I only pick the roses that stand in our path
Your beauty goes unmatched
Jessica Oge Feb 9
This smoke screen
A ruse to throw me off
This staunch scent
I can barely breathe
Words fail me
Paranoid and wary
Oh, how easily i'm deceived

Like a sucker to the yellow kid,
I'm enthralled in this illusion
You conceal your intentions artfully,
A gracious gift
You beguile me
I'm helpless to your control
Oh, how easily i'm deceived

Your front is peace-loving
Yet, i know no peace
and love has eluded me
Neither impatient nor angry
But this rod on my neck tells a different story
Still, your smile charms me
Oh, how easily i'm deceived

The role naive suits you
A befitting cloak for your bland tales
An unrepentant rogue
Harmless and banal
You lure me
Oh, how easily i'm deceived.
certain humans are graced in the art of deceit

First date at a random playground
You sat in the swing next to mine
Chased me around
Never running out of time
Your lips, made me nervous
Messed up, the first kiss
I looked down, embarrassed
Teenage, innocence
Laid beneath the trees
Felt you pressed up against me
Watched the leaves sway slowly
Helplessly attached instantly

I want that puppy love back
Those jump in, don’t question moments of clarity
Bringing out the naive side of me
Craving the love song mentality
Warm summer sun filled our lungs
Walking hand in hand to puppy love
Mixed with the rebellion of reality,
That’s never visible to young kids like you and me.

Never again will we love so blindly and so full
Never again will we decide before we think
Never again will we fall before we meet
Never again will months feel like one blink
But you’re never supposed to even consider
These things when you’re
Running around a playground
Convinced that it’s more
Than puppy love.
the monster that people say I am
is nothing but parts of them
they built over me
their gullible blank space
