If all our life was but a dream
Fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me

And she said she can't believe
How genius only comes along
In storms of fabled foreign tongues
Tripping eyes, and flooded lungs
Northern downpour sends its love

Hey moon, please forget to fall down
Hey moon don't you go down
Sugarcane in the easy mornin'
Weather-vanes my one and lonely...
I love this song...

For you I would kiss poetry
In a world so loud and poisoned
Let me take to a place where we
Would roam free.
It's about how words could impact a,single soul.
How it could help even the people in the worst of situations. No matter where in this world. Because even in a world of constant destruction. Just That single person could take you away from it all.

She was flawed, completely; but not in the way she though.

She was flawed in the way an artist ruins a white canvas with a beautifully colored sunset.

she was damaged, in the way the night sky is broken by the dawn.

 An orchid appears as another plant unworthy of a second gaze, yet it produces the most spectacular bloom. she is this bloom, complex and mysterious, but unquestionably sweet. Valued for her differences from others, and unmatched in my heart.

Sometimes you need something more
Some type outside force

No not me
I'm not good enough
I am not the greatest of all healers

So sometimes you need something more
The one and only true outside force
All of your pain would be relieved
All you have to do is believe
I wrote this for a friend of mine. She struggles and I just can't help or heal her. So maybe if she would come to believe, all of her struggles would be relieved. Maybe she will see this and it will touch her. Maybe there is one of you out there that need see this more than her. I pray that maybe this is a start in the right direction.

I wish I had a one and only.
Like, the one and only to rule all one and only's.
A best friend. Someone to love.
Someone to tell everything to,
Someone to hold and who will hold me.
I wish I may, I wish I might.

I wish I had the gift of inclusion.
Like, inclusion into all groups and areas ever.
A free entry card. An easy pass.
Somewhere to call home,
Somewhere to feel free to be me.
I wish I may, I wish I might.

I wish I had the heart they say I do.
Like, the heart to trump all hearts.
A caring heart. A selfless heart.
Some way to stop hurting,
Some way to stop thinking.
I wish I may, I wish I might.
Just mindless wishing. No one responds to my texts sometimes and I'm so lonely and messed up that I get paranoid that my phone maybe just isn't receiving things and that people actually are responding. Nope.

Remember we were so young?
When I would hold you?
I remember it was just us two.
Maybe I should let you go, but,
Nobody's gonna love you, the way that I do.
So, baby come and stay with me.
Come back to me,
Be my one and only.
I promise to love you,
For eternity.

'I love you.'

Simple words,
  but what do they mean?
Digging deeper,
  past the ****** and obscene,
the mists fade,
  and sight becomes clear.
To begin,
  they are absent of fear,
but hold tight
  a certain hesitance,
just like
  asking for that first dance.

Within the words
  are layers of composition,
containing different,
  yet elemental cohesion.
It is the
  quiet stare that stands on
the cusp
  of diving into conversation,
the course deviation
  that leads me next to you.

The flowers
  dancing all summer through,
the crystal flakes
  that blanket the ground,
the silence
  of space that resounds,
the crescent moon,
  waning philosophical mute,
the acorn,
  dying to feed the shoot,
as am I,
  all these things in union.

My dreams,
  your fetching face,
and the kisses,
  which I intentionally place,
brushing them,
  across your eyes and nose,
down your neck,
  tracing where your collar bones go.
Drifting slowly
  across space-time and cosmos,
tangled up
  in your arms, as the galaxy flows,
a thousand stars
  stream by, but I'm consumed
with you,
  my entire world in bloom.

You alight
  dancing from planet to moon,
tiptoeing Saturn's rings,
  skipping across Neptune.
Running fingers
  like paintbrushes, you create
art like breath,
  swirling storms and fate,
Arms swaying,
  stars glittering in each swirl,
you caper towards
  the Sun in graceful twirls.
Spinning past
  Earth and the God of War,
Miming the backward,
  and skipping the Mercurial shores,
the Sun
  burns hot and bright,
striving to outshine,
  and dims in shallow spite.

But before
  you're confident smile grows,
I want you
  to step back and hold,
the world,
  our blue, sordid home
in your hands,
  then turn and look beyond that dome.
The galaxy,
  in it's vast glowing brilliance,
the stars and
  nebulae and shining dalliance,
for that,
  is my love encompassing,
far greater than
  this Earth, on which we are living.

Then I
  awake, aching desire
to let you
  know of this deep-seated fire,
that wishes
  you were waking next to me,
feline stretching,
  stifling a yawn, then I'd be,
kissing your neck,
  and whispering in your ear,
'I love you'
  hoping that it was clear,
just exactly
  what I meant, knowing
I could never
  explain exactly or wholly.

Across
mountain
peaks
like
the
spikes
of your
hair
my fingers
brush,
careening off
glaciers
and sliding
down hidden
slopes.
Curved and
crossed
as the bones
in your spine,
smooth
and
strong
like
the
gliding
wings
of
a hawk.
The tawny-colored
feathers
echoed
in each
iris.
A look,
haunting.
Chills
and
weightlessness
invade
my body
curled
next
to yours
in perfect
sync
to your
heartbeat.
Where
waterfalls
overflow
our emotions
capsizing
our lonely
individual
vessels
amid galaxies
colliding
each
other
on a
spiraling
journey
of
passion.
The heat.
Bronzer
than the
sun in
Summer.
My love.
My moon
and
my stars.
My one
and
only.
Just
two
out-there
planets
together
forever.
Undiscovered,
untarnished,
undefiled
by humanity.

A secret whisper
from
the
nebulas…

*I
   love
            you….
I've never been more in love.

— The End —
