I laid my soul out to bare
This type of honesty from me is rare
I said the three little words
Now my emotions are stirred

I am finally happy
Blissfully sappy
Picturing a future
A relationship to nurture

In the back of my mind
Are feelings of another kind
Negative thoughts loom
A sense of impending doom

I’m scared you will tire of me
Up and flee
Worried I’ll end up hurt
I am on high alert
I write about the stars too much.

I blame you.

Eyes holding galaxies in sweet captivity.

That starstruck feeling when you look at me.

Lips that taste of constellations.

Ecstacy of cosmic proportions.

Words drawing me in like a black hole.

Your body, like a goddess swimming in stardust.

Accidental perfection parallel to the Milky Way.

Your laugh as bright as a thousand supernovas.

Heart made of stars, filling the space in my own.

I write about the stars too much.

But really, I just write about you, far too much.

For My Love
Your infectious smile,
Like a drug with uncontrollable side effects.

That real, genuine laugh,
Sweet like damp pines.

Those piercing, beautiful eyes,
Sharp enough to rip through my chest and suffocate my heart.

The lips that drew me in,
Like rosy vines tugging at my soul.

Your fine brown hair,
That tangled my mind with absolute rapture.

Arms of ivory gold,
Wrapping me safely with false bliss.

Your angelic body,
Tailored so perfectly to mine like destiny.

A soothing voice of honey,
I could listen to for hours with a simper reply.

That is just the beginning,
Of what makes you lovely.

Only the start,
To a story of your undying loveliness.

I could give you the entire universe but then i would just be giving you yourself.
but it's true tho
Mr Quiet Aug 8
Suffocating from the hatred you keep giving yourself,
I'm so worried sick about you, don't want you to feel unwell.
Just here trying to make you happy as much as I can,
Yet you always end up depressed,
But fuck that,
I'll always love you even after the end.
I'll make sure that you're really fine,
And if not I'll give you a billion reasons why,
Why I'm fucking glad you exist and why I don't want you to die.

Ask me why I care so much about you?
Well you've given me a reason to smile,
You were there for me during my loneliest nights,
And you gave a whole new meaning in my life.
How am I not suppose to love you and hold you tight?
'Cause you were there for me, so I'll always be here for a laugh or a shoulder to cry.

Maybe I care too much,
I don't know,
I don't care.
I'd rather have thoughts of you more than anybody else,
I'm afraid of losing you,
I'm scared.
I fell to fill in your empty heart,
And I knew the risks and consequences I dared.
I care.
I love you boo <33

I imagine myself with you, M.
I can see myself,  happy with you.

I can picture us on our first date,
laughing so hard we hold onto each other for support.
I can picture us walking together,
admiring all the local shops and galleries our town has to offer.
I can picture us holding hands,
and you holding me as we gaze out at sea.
I can picture us snorkeling together,
and how you'll laugh when I inevitably breathe in the ocean.
I can picture us kissing for the first time,
how our eyes will meet,
and how our hearts will explode with excitement.
I can picture us kissing,
and how our bodies will melt into one.
I can picture myself falling asleep next to you,
and how peaceful I will feel when I wake up beside you.

Most importantly,

I can picture myself falling in love with you.
How wonderful life will be with you to share it with.
I will chase these butterflies forever if it brought me closer to you.

I thought I knew what love was
I read Austen, Bronte, and Shakespeare, too.
I thought I knew what love was
and then I fell in love with you

I am no stranger to love's life and lore
and had been nearly married once before
his alone I swore to be, forever long
thinking it was love until I heard your song

with kindness, passion, and care
you showed me what love could be
with you, my defenses are bare
and it's only your love that I see

I'll give myself to you because because
I've found a love both warm and true
I never knew what love was
before I had met you
Now I know what love is.
Mr Quiet Jul 19
Hold on to me.
I cannot even bare the thought of losing you,
For you are already a part of me,
You are the sole purpose of why my heart beats.

Loving words,
Caring heart,
Breathtaking presence,
You tear me apart.
You love me so much,
As I also love you,
No words can measure the weight of my heart.
Where do I even start?

I'll always remember those times,
When we kept talking about our lives,
We talked and talked 'till past midnight,
We talked and we felt love inside.

You were there for me,
At my loneliest times,
During those depressing nights.
I thought no one would be that nice,
But then you proved me wrong,
And held me tight.
Mr Quiet Jul 3
Woke up, feeling bitter emptiness,
I only breathe the polluted air.
Love is here to make a mess,
Love only exists to bring despair.
Haha I'm so emotional.... and lame.
Mr Quiet Jul 3
I'm sorry,
I cannot ease your pain and cure your sorrow,
I cannot give you enough love for your bottomless heart,
Nor enough hope into your fragile life,
But that is not an excuse for you and I to give up,
I will still try,
Even if you still cry to sleep,
Late at night.

I will never fix what you hate in yourself for only you can do that,
But I will always be there if you want someone to listen.
I hear the echoes of your agonizing mind and I can feel the pain through your eyes,
I know the screeches of your soul and tears inside your lies,
I know and feel your emptiness every time you say, "I'm Fine."

And I hear you laugh,
I see you smile,
I hold those precious memories for I know those small periods of time is still valued,
Never forgotten,
Never denied,
For I remember those times and know for a fact that you'll still be alright.
Because I will never give up on you,
For you are just in a cocoon right now,
But I see within you,
A butterfly.
