You said you were tired
And I was too
But I didn't want to let go
Because it meant I'd lose you.
Yes we were mature,
Enough to be friends,
But did we want that?
It still felt like the end.
Here we are sitting,
On the bench, in our park,
Talking about anything,
Even when it was dark.
The lamps turned on,
Flashing lights of cars,
We went our separate ways,
Knowing love could never be ours.
Not everything about you and I has to be always perfect.
Not all of your secrets have to be on the open.
Such takes time.
We don’t need a favourite song.
Favourite TV show.
We just need each other.
We need our Love kept in place.
Is it fear to fear the fears of the unknown?
What you and I have for each other is unknown.
At least we have each other.
At least we know one another.
Facts of this World remain hidden.
At least I’ve got you to reveal.
As a beautiful bride is unveiled, so is your love in my heart.
I love you now as my skin carries me.
I’ll love you till I carry my skin.
Let’s grow old together.
Filled to burst
With dark thoughts
Like her arms
Like her dreams
From her grasp
So much like
It rains. It pours.
It breaks. Once more.
January 1, 2018.
It always comes back
Regret without regret
An unhealing wound
The peace of it all strikes me
I feel warmth again
And then I remember that you're still gone
and I'm still
My head is a pub
My thoughts, the chain-smokers
Clouding my mind and vision
With fumes of false perception
My emotions, the drunkards
They stagger from one wall to another
Wreak the most havoc
Together, they rage a war with my sanity
Destroying my pub's peace
And there is the blaring music,
sounding from an overhead television
A voice convincing me,
I am rotten to the core
As I sink to the floor
And tears well up my eyes
And my soul melts
I had a meltdown again, Mum...
Late night sad boy hours
**I never actually post here much tbh
ruffled caramel hair you always mess with
eyes with a hundred beautiful blue hues I can't fully describe
a warm laugh that makes your voice sparkle
perfect lips I long to tough with mine
a heart that cares, that loves, that beams
a spirit that loves the Lord
a sort of gritty, not-too-low-or-too-high voice
limbs that dance with her
with her small size and shape
her long brown, perfectly curled hair
in a short, white dress that shimmers in the starlight
her muscular legs that chase a useless sphere every weekend
not with my thick silhouette
my short mom-ish hair
a dress I got in a size 1... from the plus sized store
my short chubby **** self
my fine art passions with meanings and flame
you chose her
she hasn't loved you
for a year you didn't see
"I know it's only in my mind
That I'm talking to myself and not to him
And although I know that he is blind
Still I say, there's a way for us"
I wish I would have been a nomad,
I would have travelled to the places no one had.
I wish I was a voracious reader,
Books would have helped me to forget her.
If life would not have been such a mystery,
It would have been easy to forget my history.
I wish I was another wanderlust
In a world which seems to forget so fast.
I never wanted to be like me.
I wish I was not me!

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Rhyming is overrated
