At times I feel like a flower
...
Swaying in a field free
...
Amongst a spectrum of colors
...
Washing down into a streams valley
...
Beneath the rays of light
...
Tickled by the feet of life
...
Plucked
...
Placed into a glass
...
By a window
...
Withering

love is a careless thing
burrowing off strangers pockets
love is there to catch you in the winter rain

love only burns so long
   for one or the other; but love--
                 is a memory of two lovers
making each other better.
Love
    is a stinging pain that seeps vitrolic freedom

love is a thing caught late that prematurely
blossoms into song.
Love is a promise that marks a heart.
The Earth before she birthed her silver baby
mirror. Flotsam blended to the sea.

Love will always be there to warm you
when you both know you were wrong,
love is a power play built on character reference
love is the morning sun swimming in the fish's dying eyes.

a little simile here,
a splash of metaphor there,
all carefully folded and mixed
to form a delicious souffle.

it goes into the oven
at the perfect temperature.
the souffle begins to rise,
the sweet aroma engulfs the room.

but the timer chimes early.
they take the souffle out,
and it sinks within itself,
forming a deep, large canyon.

but this souffle is different.
they put it back in the oven.
it bakes longer and longer
until it finally rises again.
Sometimes it takes time to find the right words. Take all the time you need. :)

I like likes:

Curious LIKE the first glance of a newborn baby
Happy LIKE the Awakened Gautama Siddhartha
Free LIKE flying fish over the ocean
Infinite LIKE the first light ray at the Big Bang
Silent LIKE a gas chamber after a shower
Always on time LIKE death

I like likes but
Do they like me?

Like the waves,
Love crashed on our shores
And withdrew with fragments of us in it.

He draws a silhouette figure on paper with ink.

He knows what she thinks.

He is fixed by her,

Like he just saw a woman for the first time.

She can just lay there and her presence shines.

He studies her body like the galaxy.

His interest won the acknowledgement test.

She won the academy.

He slips it on her desk.

And says to her  "You are art."

All my emotions bottled up.

Part of my soul has sunken in.

Your voice vibrates on my skin.

Bittersweet memories circulate like a washer on full spin.

I line my feelings and pin my agonizing thoughts.

Poured all my emotions, you stole all my tokens.
So cheap.

Drying all the wounds that cut so deep.

Like a passenger sitting on a bus
Surrender your life to me,
I'll guard it like a driver steering
In the darkness, and
After dropping you to the destination
Will move on, happy with the FARE of Memories.

Her smile
Sweet Memory
In Life Experience
Her smile
Great lip expression
With dimple in chin
Removing depression
Her smile
Infatuating attraction
Of an angel from heaven
Her smile simile
Just impossible!
