I don’t need to make promises
to love you unendingly
or think of you incessantly
I don’t need to swear
that I will never leave your side
Those are things that I cannot control
They will happen regardless of my choosing
Because my soul has already chosen yours
Bianca Reyes Sep 27
I keep chasing ghosts with you
I don’t know if they are yours
Or if they are my own
Contorted into something unknown
I am haunted by my love for you
Or by the way you look so blue
But I shall chase these ghosts for two
[The usual copy right business thing here]

Our two twisted hearts can’t stay apart,
we’re not like anyone we’ve ever known.
You called me your lantern in the dark,
my light made you feel less alone.

I love the rainy days you need warmth
you come closer so I can hold you.
My little defeated bird,
I swoop in to take care of you.

Those times remain special in my mind,
gentle words between me and you.
I keep you there in those places sometimes,
It’s where I've seen all of you.

You still made a friend for life my love
don’t be scared I will ever leave.
I’ll always make sure you’re okay,
and wear my heart on my sleeve.

Some bonds aren’t meant to be explained,
that’s why we can’t stay away.
Our souls must reach out to meet,
but we’re free to come and go as we please.
I don’t know how to tell you
that you make me fall in love
with being alive
so instead I’ll tell you
that since I met you I’ve found
beauty in a rainstorm
and sometimes at night
when I feel so close to giving up
because it would be easier than
missing you
I hold my breath and listen
as rain knocks on my bedroom window
and I’m reminded that the first time
you touched me
lightning coursed through my veins
and brought me back to life
like a kiss in a fairytale
you woke me up when I didn’t know
I was sleeping  

I don’t know how to tell you
that before you
I traveled three frames
behind everyone
as the world sped by
and words fell from lovers mouths
after they had already walked away
I struggled to catch up
with jumbled words
that tumbled through my trembling lips
but I was always too late
so I became mute to save myself
the heartache
and when you came along
I had forgotten how to speak
so I stayed silent
instead of admitting how much
you meant to me

I know that if I were lucky enough
to be heard by you again
I would tell you that I want you
in the most mundane ways
like Sunday mornings with iced coffee
and menthol kisses
—like listening to you sing in the shower
and watching your eyes light up as you laugh
I want summer evenings at the beach
bowling dates and early morning hikes—

I’ve never known how to tell you
that I will always take you for who you are
and what you’ve done
so I tried to show you through
good morning texts
and words of affirmation
but I need to stop assuming
you know what I mean
when I speak in metaphors
so I hope someday my words find you
and you’ll understand that for me
you were never a phase
and I can only dream
that you can still see the rainstorm
you unleashed inside of me
all those months ago
I think my soul hates me
I think my soul loves you
And it rips my insides to streads for keeping you two apart

It’s hard I know, the constant question lingering
Is this worth it?
Arguing everyday over stupidity and the results of overthinking thoughts
It’s dangerous taking a chance on love when the easiest thing and the hardest thing to do is leave.
I don’t have control over whether or not you choose to go.
I will fight with every breath in my body, I will show you it’s worth loving me
I fight because I know it’s worth it.
I know we can be better,
Time will tell if my efforts make a difference
I’m holding out my hand for a better world, with you by my side
I’m holding out for hope that the struggles and obstacles are temporary
If i strongly believe that it isn’t worth fighting for,
I’d be quiet and not care as much as I do
I love harder, I love more.
More than insecurities and doubts,
Those are minuscule and temporary, they fade away with every day we are together
You’re worth it
You’re more than enough, you’re better
We’re better
We’re stronger together
Conquer this world with me,
This is our time
I love you
Now and always

I thought you were my
soulmate, but now I think you
have no soul at all.

You made me alive, I felt like myself,
I found my soul within you,
How can I be foolish to let the world of no
meaning become between me and you.
she stood still
only wanting to be
noticed
wanting only to be
acknowledged
for that moment only
time stood still
when he stood still
only wanting to
find her
and give her
anything she wants
only when they
both stood still
could they really
see
he was the one
for her
she was the one
for him
all along
