I am a crustacean
stuck in my shell,
hard to crack open,
and softest at my core

I am a crustacean
buried deep underwater,
difficult to catch,
and palatable only to a few

I am a crustacean
hidden inside my house,
impossible to hold,
and shyest face to face
Shyness is not my best quality.

I can make you feel loved,
I can take the weight of the world off your shoulder,
but only if you ask me to.
I can take you places,
fill all your blank spaces.
This love is silent,
so I don't speak a word
Because I am nothing like the moon.
My light will never be as bright.
I'm nothing that you'd admire from afar,
gazing at with wonder.
I thought I understood it.
That I could grasp the reality of it,
but you make it hard
because you're the stuff and dust dreams are made of.

We walked by
the wheat fields
golden flowers
citrus mornings
my hand in yours went:
I belong here.

You mumbled
something shy
sunrise yellow
warm and honeyed
and it went:
I love you.
I walk to you hoping we could talk
and immediately I start to tremble, and I can’t speak at all.
When you say hello and greet me with a kiss and a hug,
my blood stirs up, and my heart collapses from a strong blow.

Imagining that I'm touching you delicately,
it feels so amazing that I could swear it’s actually happening.
When we look at each other little by little I weaken,
my senses vanish, and I fall defeated.

There we are, together the two of us
in a sweet fantasy of love that repeatedly takes over my thoughts.
A warm feeling bursts inside of me,
as I struggle to hide my feelings every time you are near me.

Although I try to take it easy,
I simply cannot contain what I’m feeling.
The truth is I want you like nobody
and the desire to be with you, I can’t control it that easily.
There is nothing wrong with this, it’s natural,
but instead, I hold myself back for this to be possible
and I know this could be so phenomenal,
but when I’m around you, I get bashful.

She spoke little
But the girl had a lot
More to say than we thought
She never really felt the need to speak
Unless given reasonable cause
Like a forest she seems calm, cool, collected
But on the inside
She has ecosystems
Like a bull
She shows aggression
But on the inside
She’s joyful
Like a Venus fly trap
She snaps when she needs to
Beware of her looks
Because they may be
I wrote this one a little while ago, I'd love to hear some feedback! :)

Is it not easy 
 to greet to someone
whom you never spoke
for a very long time?

Among all people,
I am the only one
you've always bypass
to talk to

I know the hindrance
why we ward off each other
just to make ourselves
escape the stigma

Curiosity gets bigger
Each time I look at you
Should I wait patiently
Or take the wheel further

One thing I could do...
All what I wanted to say,
all my thoughts about you,
are profoundly shrouded

You and me
are the only ones
to know what's in...
where people shouldn't know

A storage box
of unspoken words
a birthday bag
full of sweets

If you are reading this
do not assume
that I did them

With every step she took there was a little hesitation,
Since self-doubt and second guessing were at the base of her foundation.
Her eyes didn't wander in fear of who'd she meet,
So her gaze fixed upon the cracks in the concrete.
But would the world ever see her potential on display,
With her voice barely a whisper and her opinions locked away?
Freddie Ruiz May 24
I remember every detail of that day
as if it were yesterday;
the two of us, alone together
at midnight on that Saturday 21st.
My heart was beating fastly,
my legs wouldn't stop shaking;  
a part of me wanted to leave
while the other was dying to stay.
And then we stopped behind your car
and after a simple goodbye you grabbed my arm.
My shyness went away and I felt an urge in my heart
to kiss you intensely until we ran out of breath there in the dark.

For once I was going with my feelings
as I pressed you closer to my body,
and I felt the need to let go of everything I had suppressed
when I saw you leaning against my chest.
I was so full of intense desires
while circulating your waist with my fingers
that I succumbed to my own weakness
by allowing my heart to guide me with no resistance.
And then I kissed your lips for one last time,
and I felt emotions overflowing deep inside.
And for a while I got lost looking in your eyes,
as the passers-by saw how we melted under that street light.

On my way back home I kept on thinking about you
and if that would’ve been the right moment to say: "I love you",
just when I had you in my arms, lost in your eyes
and gave you that one last kiss goodbye.

When the desire invades me
unforgettable memories come to mind again
of a moment that belonged to the two of us,
in front of your house, on that 21st of June.
