I was just about to open my heart to you,
I was going to let you have the other half I thought you deserved,
I stayed by your side as you did mine,
We were closer then Then water to a tap,

You said it isn’t like you.
That it only happened once.
Once too many I believe.
I’ve been here once, with the one that my broke my heart before,
I learned from that.
I learnt my lesson.



Lesson learnt.
This is it for us.
This is were it ends.
It’s time you find a new nest.
You never touch the hot stove which burnt you, twice.
For once I dreamt:
You and I laughing
In the rain – wet.

When I look straight up
To your ocean eyes,
It was like a dice
Guessing what number
Will we ever compromise.

Until this very day came,
Started to realize
Things are exactly the same;

Starting from the raindrops
That commenced to collide
Into our skin,

To a hand
Trying to reach
Another one,

To a sober person
Seeking for one’s hug,

And up to time,
When I was straight up
Looking at you.
I sigh and asked myself,
“Is this Deja Vu?”.

you are pretty,
but that is all.
if your appearance
reflected your heart
it would be hard
for people to look at you,
in your distorted face
but i still would
to tell you
to go fuck yourself.

and all these gods are in one place
conspiring and -
all your efforts are misplaced
whining like an -
off-key note in a seraphic choir
lamenting a -
weekend's bitter aftertaste.

here's a thing you can't avoid:
a war of worlds on a bedroom floor
the house is kept unlocked at night
and a crosswind billows through the door.

...and all his questions are ignored
he chipped his teeth cause he was bored.

we wrote missives to a shallow grave
dug with musicals we rearranged
to fit the arc we fashioned here
as we waltzed atop the sinking pier.

...I am prone to switching off
So I will never turn you on.
this is a song i'm writing, have a draft
(Land that doth marry mother lode
of sublime earthen land and sea).

Age of exploration
   ushered cruel fate
   against “red” men living
   in bliss by agents

   patch of eden north
   o Mason Dixon line
   latitude: 39.64839
   longitude: -75.95591 alee

perchance designed
   by divine providence
   with dyslexic humorous bents
   Cecil county Maryland

   lies like plump backward letter “e”
witnessed topographic erosion
   pocked imprimatur marked
   meteorological dents

   thru inundation of
   oceanographic propensities
   melding coastline like Galilee
in particular by Chesapeake Bay,

   that body of water
   abutting like natural fence
   first witnessed by captain
   John Smith in 1608

   mistaking himself tong tied
   in sole of Italy
learned faux pas, when crossing paths
   with Susquehannas hence,

   offered tobacco sticks to natives
   while recovering
   from injured wounded knee
said other sundry tribes curiously eyed
then (I utilized poetic license)
took smoke from packet of Kents
   which twist on actual
   historical facts manipulated by me
but more truthful account awash
   and replete with more

   than interspersed nonsense
   and incorporates tract situated
   in so called Fertile Crescent – see
settled by Europeans of English stock,

   who emigrated with nary a pence
   “taming” shrew like “noble savages”
    plied Leviathan sized ukuleles
whose might exploited for felling forests,
   which timber built cabins with vents.

Once upon a time,
We were once combined
Now you're gone over time
And here I am, wondering where you are.

Have you forgotten me already?
I was once your princess.
Right now I'll confess,
Since you've been gone, I've been so unsteady.


--j.a



was once your "once upon a time"
i was once happy
i was once stress free

i once loved sincerely.

but love,
he broke me.

intentionally.

once,
twice,
thrice,

it keeps on going until i lose count.

i’m sorry, it’s going to be hard at the beginning,
i’m sorry if i will complicate things.

if you have no positive intention towards me,
please don’t come to me.

cause love,
i once lost my self loving someone.

it’s not easy to find yourself back after someone hurt you.
that’s why it’s not going to be easy to start something new.

i don’t expect you to understand,
but all i’m asking is for your patience.

i know there's no certainty yet.

Just know,
one day,
it’ll will be worth the wait.

That,
i can assure you.
Juan CA May 21
A once in a lifetime love
To never let go of
One that will stay by your side at any cost
When all else is lost
To pull you up when
Everyone is pushing you down
To calm you down whenever
you have a nervous breakdown
When will a love so great appear
I hope she is near
Waiting a lifetime for an opportunity of unity
And yearning for the moment I have you in my heart
And finally have a fresh start

Deep down the soul
Arises her song
Sung by all,
Heard by none.
Contentment is bitter
Silence is louder
Deep down the soul
His thoughts cry
Satisfaction is no more
Rest are all lies
Maybe presence of one
Is absence of the other
It's only 'Hope'
that
Can be seen
In the world of blind possessions.

Maybe snow cones
And pickup lines
Aren’t meant to go
Hand in hand,
But I needed a map
Because I was lost in your eyes.

You gave me a snow cone
I gave you my number
And maybe
That’s not a good trade
But you thought
Maybe
It was worth it
At least for one night.

You’re just a football-playing
Baseball boy
And maybe
There was a spark
And maybe
You liked the taste of grape
That lingered on my lips
And maybe
You’re still going
To text me back.

But maybe
Is no assurance
To a girl
In love with love
And boys who make
Snow cones.
