They say we accept the love we think we deserve
But consider this: we give back the love we've been offered

All I have is an infinite capacity to hurt, cut deep
I would destroy you - Apollo
Creature of music and hope
I rather hope I never have the chance to

I see you and try to imagine what it could feel like
to be loved carefully, cradled
Swathed in your light
Some quick feelings penned down - like bloodletting.
Jule Sep 2
I try to find a time I’ve felt this before
An internal battle
With no tears to show
But unbeknownst a broken soul
A use of a body and then another
Fleeting feelings
Never catching one another
Where a soul ends
Comes from a deep end
Of karma inviting itself into my bed
If magic and fantasy had ever existed,
There would have been no poetry.
Yearning is poetry.
Hunger is poetry.
Reminiscing is poetry.

Fantasizing is poetry.
Fantasy isn't.
Imitating is poetry.
Faking isn't.

Love
How I yearn
To feel something different
Something less painful
Like
Death, perhaps
Don't you care that he's crying?
Don't you care that he's crying?
Don't you care that he's crying?
Don't you care that he's crying?
Don't you care that he's crying?
Don't you care that he's crying?
Don't you care that he's crying?
Don't you care that he's crying?
Don't you care that he's crying?
Don't you care that he's crying?
Don't you care that he's crying?
Don't you care that he's crying?

I'll look after you dear..

There. Something to do with that . There are none to look after him.

Why?!
My words seem to hurt you.
when I mean them the most.
My feelings desert you,
As if I were a ghost!?
But I didn't haunt you,
when you were at your lowest?!
So why do you desert me,
when I need you the most?
Why do you perceive me,
as a poltergeist??
I'm not here to haunt you,
Only to exchange advice!!
We are both here to learn,
And gain from experience.
So why do you place me,
In the category, of delerience??
You don't seem to hear me,
Or maybe you don't want to??
I suppose that denial is easier,
than dealing with what you don't want to??
But that does not make it fair,
Because I think I get you...?!
Maybe I understand.. .,
The things that upset you.
But what if I don't??
Can we still work through this??
Can we work as a team,
to try and distill this?
That's what I want, and that's what I need.
I yearn for someone, who's not afraid to bleed!!
For something that's special,
For something that means,
For something that's more than just someone that needs!!
For someone to want me,
like I want them!
for someone to see a future,
before they see an end!
All I want, Is something that's real!
something that makes me,
and you, really feel!
I think I've found it, inside of you?
But please don't be scared,
if you feel it too.
Just embrace it,
And endulge in it too.
And enjoy it as much,
As I enjoy you!!
Tiny bit tipsy.
Big conversation tonight.
Neither will remember tomorrow.
Thank **** for poetry!!
Touch me forever
Or never at all
Your cowardly acts
Drive me insane
As a stab in my love
Growing with pain
Thorns everywhere
With my trust on the line
Does your heart yearn for love
Or is it just mine?
Jenna Feb 23
Nothing simple about this,
'Love at first sight'
Yet foolish and wanted
People will shake heads
But I cannot help,
to yearn for it
In hopeful secretiveness, waiting
for a warm embrace
in reassurance that,
it will come
Who else wants love?
