the sun no longer shined
it became dark
the whole world was about to feel her wrath
as her screams could be heard
her fury could be felt

crackling sounds of lighting could be heard within
the dark cloud grew larger
one look and one could tell a storm was brewing
what had seemed like a sunny day turned dark and solemn
one push
one button
and over the edge, she goes

final stroll
the noise around him drowned her cries
he couldn't make a word of what she said
it seemed the storm had passed
closing his eyes to breathe
with a shatter, she broke
and all hell broke loose

The total internal reflection..
The inner beauty..
She was so beautiful that even God
created a broken road
Β Β to test if I prove worthy
He summoned women to lure me
Β Β to think that I'll grab a taste
yet it only made my love for her grow
since He only summoned women
that they'll only get a glance
Β Β Β Β but never my heart

He made me roam the wildest forest
Β Β in it were the signs of your wild flaws
I have been bruised by the thorns of your traumas
broke my bones
from the falling of branches
that fell cause of the wildlife
who dared to mess with your growth
and I have tumbled upon the roots
of your deepest fears
Β Β  only to to feel the pain
that I can mend

Yet after all the struggles
after all the pain that I endured
Β Β  I have reached the end
an end where I saw
the beauty that's worth
every inch of misery
Β Β  To forever hold you

It's all so loud
the silent sound
of an empty bed
empty home
empty chest
empty heart
empty rest
the nothing on it all
the void that fills the air
the dark of every night
the grey before dawn
forget it
the lack of you has no name
it has me lost in words
endless stream of thoughts
it robs me from my rhyme
my structure, my rhythm
in the end
it leaves me on the floor
scribbling like a mad man
letters on dusty boards
your name, all over it
Pedro Feb 18
Cloud and shadow
mist and dust
a sudden gust
of your scent and sight
smoke and mirror
day came night
light and dark
alone and done
until you got me still
dazed and spun
like yarn undone
into gloves and scarf
but then dawn came
alone on turf
tossed and burnt
by your moonlight

do you miss me like I miss you?

tried so hard to focus on myself
but all I am reminded of
is you.

Thoughts of you rain down with the falling sky
Onto my skin, it soaks it in
Thoughts of you take the shape of water
Then transform into paper boats
And drown in our conversations
My memory becomes subject to erasure
You extract poetry from forgotten moments
Thoughts of you hold my hand when I’m lost
And mold into a compass when I’m in need
of remembering something that was good for me

You'll have more bad days than good.
You'll experience more pain
than you should have to.
At times, you'll feel broken; weak.
But you're stronger than you would think.
And when you find that strength,
that reason to stand,
you will come to understand
you have new responsibilities.
Responsibilities to yourself.
To the ones you let in.
Even responsibilities to the ones
who get under your skin.
You've come so far already,
but there's still so much to do.
I'll leave you to it.
I just want you to know I'm proud of you.

I was an infant soul.

He came to me in my dreams
as a lullaby only I could sing.

And he watched as I swiftly
rocked myself into a romance

only him and I could sway to.

When you whisper to me
The sweetest things
How much more smitten could I be

I could listen to you talk for hours
When I’m with you
I feel like the whole world is ours

So when you hug me
Don’t let go
I don’t care if everyone knows
That I’m obsessed with you
And everything thing you do

I’ll squeeze you tight
Just to let you know
How much I love you.
