A collection of ‘Love is…’ Poetry

Love is this.
Love is that.
Love is wonderful,
If love is what you have.

Reality driven.

Hand on heart I love you.
From the start my love has been true.
So beautiful, as soon as we met.
You caught me looking and I was trapped in your net.

Stuck to you through thick and thin.
You are on my mind again, I think,
About you nearly every day.
I still desire you in every way.

I want you bad, to be good to me.
I have always needed you to let me be,
The one you love until the end.
This is no time for me to pretend.

Shot a rebel through the heart.
Cancer kills but life is art.
You tried to put a stop to all that we are,
But we are too hot to handle; you can’t grab hold of a star.

Fire your guns; I’m invincible.
Speak your words; I’ve heard them all before.
Condemn a man for condemning your war.
You will never stop what we are.

Your system of control and degrade is beginning to fade.
Push my buttons, I’m a microwave,
Blowing through your wall like a hand grenade.
A tongue so sharp, I’m a razorblade;
Cutting your lies apart…your truth cannot be saved.

A complex God

I can’t always be your salvation.
One day I will rip you apart.
I won’t always be a helping hand,
Because one day I will reach inside and tear out your heart.

If you allow me to love you, utterly and truly,
Then you must allow me to write about you in my art.
Let me show you all that I am and all I could be.
Come travel with me beside a shooting star.

We can learn to fly hand in hand.
Walk with me over foreign lands,
That are new to our being.
Maybe one day we will become all knowing and all seeing.

If you are my God and I become yours,
All things will become possible in this crazy mixed-up world.

In pieces

The debris of my shattered soul,
Is all that remains of the old me I used to know.
I, the ghost, who haunts my life of cold,
Just sits here shivering…lost without a hope.

Broken by love a thousand times.
Crippled permanently by all the lies.
I live this life inside a lie.
I say I am happy, so they don’t have to cry.

If I tell the truth to anyone who cares,
I fear that it would leave them to be scared.
So I will just tell ‘you’ what goes on inside my head.
Today I thought ‘I want to be dead.’

Head down

I'm still walking.  I'm still talking.
I'm still trying to find a way for this life to mean something.
I got no direction…just using self-reflection.
Trying to find a way to see me under closer inspection.

I wanna be in love, but no one loves me and they never could.
I could have wrote a book, but that's another story.
Just advice from a reflection in a mirror that I never took.

I could have reached high, but I just passed on by.
Now I'm another Mr. Nobody who spends his time staring at the sky.
I could have made it, if I just tried to;
But there’s no way I'm ever gonna be safe with you.

So I still walk alone; no interest in my phone.
Just use it to write rhymes that don’t ever matter,
While I'm walking home alone.

I got no lover. I got no life, besides,
I couldn't ever try to make it to the other side.
Just staying in this hole; the only place I know.
It keeps my feelings safe, when I just bury them deep in my soul.

A matter of life and death

Life; the infinite circle of dreams written in the stars.
Death; is on the back of a turtle waiting for the far.
The time stretching sand, dripping destiny into jars.
Life is a destination; what will be your car?
Choose your vehicle; which will carry you on?
Death is unspoken; a funeral of songs.
If all you wished for was all suddenly gone,
What would you desire first in front of the new sun?
