she gave me her nudes
she was bare
and so out
and i willingly
because it wasnt the nudes
that showed her body
the physical aspects
that made her beautiful
it was the words
she didnt choose
and the spontaneity
that left her
either from her lips
or her fingers
she was as bare
as her nudes
and i accepted
her for her.

It's been a while
Since we last talked
How have you been?
I hope you're doing okay
I guess I still miss you
Missing how I wake up seeing you
Smiling at me each morning
Wanting to stay in bed the entire day
Do you remember how
We enjoy making breakfast everyday?
How dreadful it feels to leave in the morning
only to hurry back and eat dinner together
I still remember our weekend dates
Whether going out, or staying home
Remember the first roses I gave you?
And my promise to give you some every week?
I still remember how you caressed my hair
and how you kissed me every time I messed up
I also remember how we used to cuddle
When we stayed home on the weekends
Do you still remember?
How warm it feels when you hug me
At times when it feels cold in bed at night
and how we ate on the same bowl or plate
Whenever we lazily eat our meals on the bed
Those were the days
When I felt happiest the most
When I felt like I'm truly alive
Sharing that simple, fun life with you
Brought contentment to my heart.
Did you feel the same way?
You smiled whenever you looked at me
You kissed back even when I nervously messed up
You had that effect on me back then
I thought I also had the same effect on you
But I guess not..
When that blissful life took a bad turn
We turned for the worst downfall as well
You kept looking for someone else in me
Someone's love that's completely different from mine
And then it crumbled..
The life we shared and held on dearly
The way we shouted and fought every night
and how we slept on the opposite sides of the bed
I guess you really didn't feel the same
Who was he?
The one you still held on to
Even though I was the one beside you
The person who kept you from being mine
Whose memories outweighed the love I gave?
Then the end came..
It came by so fast I never caught a glimpse
I was still willing to fix it yet you alone brought it down
You walked out that door and left me for good
You took my heart with you as you went to him
It still hurts..
I am still stuck with loving you
Even if my mind says otherwise
Your ghost still haunts my life
I don't know what else to do
Stop running to me when you need comfort from him
Stop calling me every time you cry on lonely nights
Stop stirring this weak heart of mine
And please don't consider me yours anymore
I'm saying a final goodbye
I hope you'll be happy in this life
In time I'll move on, I'll be free
Even if in my heart, you'll always be dear to me
I remember pressing my
innocent ears to the mouths
of discarded seashells, just to
hear their secrets; and I shared mine.
They told me secrets in the form of
ocean waves and whispers of wind
between the fingers of the palms.
On days that I feel the world
crumbling and combusting
around me, I press my wiser
ears to the same lips that kept
all my secrets safe. I remember
the advice seashells gave to a
young girl who'd felt discarded.
Be like the ocean, let it flow.
She's too passionate
for this messy world -
She doesn't fit-in,
so she tries to stay out.
It's a constant
between her fragile heart
and her delicate mind.
She can't help but feel too much -
peace of mind
is all that she ponders about.
She is gentle,
empathetic and intelligent,
but vulnerable -
she was born this way,
She has relived
this same hopeless feeling
every single blessed day.
She is an overthinker -
Full of genuine love,
whilst drained by such pain;
she is beautifully oversensitive.
She's always lonely
amongst a crowd,
whilst completely lost
deep inside the belly
of the same-old dark cloud.
She's a beautiful, beautiful mess...
She gives her entirety--nothing less!
By Lady R.F. (C) 2017
Your warm soft leg
Full lips slightly open
Black hair fanned
Out across the
******* rising and falling
Looking at you
Taking a snapshot
For my heart
During hard times
In the future
One of the first poems I wrote back in February this year. Wrote it for my wife.
You created the distance between us
You choose to forget what we had
You didn't even know you make'd me cry
You know nothing about my feelings
You said every single thing you'll remember
You said you're sorry
I forgave you
But I just hate the fact that memories still lingers
Everytime we see each other, you hug me
What contradicts you for telling the truth?
Our friendship that I treasure,
You just throw it away in one snap
