I'll never forget  
That cozy coffee shop
Where u & I had first met....

I remember I had run
Behind ur car
Under that beautiful sun....

Heart was overjoyed
U had lowered the window glass
I saw ur lips smiled...

I had gotten late
Ran to reach the cafe
Meeting u was our fate...

When i saw ur face
I was taken aback
Time had stopped,
U had dazzled in black...

Those eyelashes killed
Once u looked at me 
The place, warmth with filled

I remember v had coffee ordered 
For a long time none of us talked
As none of us had even bothered ...

The silence turned musical
When u had asked, 
"How are u Faisal???"

I remember i had laughed so much
Listening to ur small jokes
"That faujis do such & such...."

It seemed time moved slow
While we talked  & talked
Amidst slowly falling snow.....

I had seen u off & cast a final gaze
Ur car had moved 
Cant forget ur beautiful face....

Wish life was a smooth ride
Wish v had never parted
& u were by my side.....
Desmond the poet Apr 2018
When we met, love Obnubilated me.
I became bananas about you.
I wanted to be luculent.
Just to be Pauciliquent.
I however felt like a blatherskite.
You probably thought I was a glaikit.

Did I sound like a meacock instead?
If so, it’s due to kakorrhaphiophobia.
I might have operose my feelings.
Did it seem like I wanna mamaguy you?
You behaved like a frondeur.

Your callipygian body looked extramundane.
Your hair looked ulitichous.
Did you feel like I lusted your Callipygian shape?
I foresaw a love that won’t flatline.
If it does, it will be eucatastrophe.

Now we’re together, I’m disenthrall from Misogamy.
You’re a deipnosophist and a mixologist.
I’m edcious.
To keep you happy, I share a boffola.
To me, love felt like a Humdudgeon.
Using rare and probably used words to express how I felt when I met my wife for the 1st.

Just a little poet
Who's always afraid to
Show it.

But then I met you.
Sometimes I was scared to show my poems, but then I met her and she said she was proud of me, and I felt way better:)
Verse 1:

I thought that
It'd be obvious
That you and I
Would be
Together

I knew it
From the very
Start

But maybe I'm
Delirious
Since I met you
I've been
Looking

Only
At The
Stars

Chorus:

But now that
Things got hard
We lost our way
Between what we
Said
And what we
Say

Let's go back
In time
Erase
This crime
And we'll
Pretend
That
We Just
Met

2nd Verse:

We were at the top
I thought that
We would never fall
The view was
Beautiful
From where we
Stood

Days and months and years
Would pass and
All would stay the same
Cause we would do
Everything
We could

Chorus
Last Verse
To Come

i said he seemed kind of sad
then he said i seemed like kind of a *****
and i think we were both right

I heard him say that she was the most beautiful
woman in the world
I looked at her and knew that she wasn't.
I heard him say it again and again -day in, day out-
and still could not understand

until I met the most beautiful woman in the world.
In the past-
I thought my dreams were coming true,
but every time-
I was let down once again...
I had just about gave up
on meeting my one true someone special-
until I'd met you...
As we were becoming friends,
I decided I'd give it
just one more chance-
You've been giving me all my once upon a time
and happily ever after dreams, wants, and hopes back...
One's I had thought
weren't meant for me...
Nights alone-
I use to lay in bed,
daydreaming away-
of how I'd want my life to be;
but I'd always see myself lost and lonely-
until I'd met you...
Now I see you by my side...
As I look back- I know each lonely tear, each lost hope,
each empty heartache, and each shattered dream-
had to happen-
until I'd met you...
I'd never thought I'd meet
someone who could capture my heart,
I'd never thought I'd be
swept off my feet,
I'd never thought I'd fall
so in love like this,
I'd never thought I'd find
something this special-
Until I'd met you...
Even with all the hurts I've been through
and caused over the years-
I never could quite
let go of my childhood dreams-
I always knew there had to be
my one true someone special
waiting and searching for me...
But I didn't know it,
until I'd met you...

The day I met you,
I wanted to be yours,
I wanted you to be mine,
I fell in love with you,
My world seemed to change,
In a way, it never had before,
My world was a broken clock,
But when I met you,
My world became the Cascades of wonder and possibilities,
The day you said "I love you,"
Was the day I knew,
You are the one for me,
I am not used to being treated,
In a wonderful way, you treat me,
People I dated in the Past treated me like an object,
To move at their own whim,
You treat me like a human,
An equal,
You love me in ways,
I never knew possible,
I opened myself up to you,
In ways, I thought long gone,  
I hope,
To be yours in eternity.
I love you always

She was leaving a certain life
That she had felt separated from
Her eyes opened in the dark

I was going though a progressive,
Introspective, and very transitional
Period in my own life
She was a great counterpart to it
It was easy to get along
I was very much going mad,
She was open to that type of wildness
Interested in the "unknown",
I was mysterious to her
My relentless need to feel alive
Drew in her curiosity
I was a mad man, I cursed
I was violent towards my fellow man,
I was a wounded bear
Yet, she keep me straight and near
On many of long days and nights together,
We always moved forward -
Always climbed each mountain
Always crossed each river
I drove our train 'round the bend
And she had trusted in our direction
We must've kept one another alive!
The *** was passionate, the nights were
Brimming with life, as the whiskey flowed
I fed off her as she fed off us
We were always, hunting & attaining as one

he reminds me
of sunshine bottled
up in a jar.

the furthest i’ve
fallen

was probably
trying to c - a - t- c- h
that bit of warmth.

when bottled up jars

once tightly shut
never opens.
"the furthest I've fallen"
Angela Liyanto Oct 2018
As I was standing under the dropping rain,
I talked to a girl
fair-dinkum
& light as corked nades
She spoke softly
And I
hummed and awkward
listened
To her love for poetry
where her eyes smiled with her speech…
Nowhere else could I find more of a love sweet thing.
We talked for two minutes under the drizzle
While we waited for the rustic buses to come
to pick up our tidy loads
I thanked her
She smiled like how Kindness would have smiled
I beat curses
& thought I near found a lover to be loved
But she said good-bye
And in my sunken mood
the pale cloud drops sank into my shoes.
Would love your feedback <3

left my phone unlocked
on the taxi’s back seat,
won't be the last time

called it a few times
finally, the driver picked up

he had a fare immediately after mine,
and was now headed way downtown,
and would call later
when fate returned him nearer my office

and so it came to pass,
very shortly thereafter,

we met on the street,
he rolled down  the window
and with the greatest smile of pleasure,
as if he had won the lottery
beaming,
handed me my phone

I had two $20's to cover any expense he might have incurred,
neatly folded in my hand  
and offered it right up, right away;
but the driver repeatedly pushed my hand away
as I insisted,
saying:

"No sir, no no, not necessary!

Allah sent me a fare
that took me soon back close to you, so,
  no loss of time did I suffer,
so your offer is kindly unnecessary!"


to which I replied,

"exactly!
Allah sent you to me
so I could reward you!"


and with an equally, beaming smile continued,

"our ride and meeting today,
together was pre-ordained it was


Inshallah!" ^

something he could not dispute...
or his amazement, disguise...

  we parted ways
   each believing,
   each receiving
a heavenly check plus,
each, credited with a mitzvah^^
on our
respective trip logs,
our humanly divine balance sheets,
kept by the
single
supreme taxi dispatcher
Arabic for ^"God/Allah willing" or "if God/Allah wills," frequently spoken by a Muslim


^^a meritorious or charitable act in the Jewish tradition

FYI,
NYC taxi cab drivers are suffering economically by the explosion of ride hailing app cars, many unable to pay their bills, earn a living, have committed suicide over the past few months

I may always be me

I saw her at the train station
She was looking at the sky
Stars were reflected in her brown eyes

Dark hair, black jacket and glasses
She always brought everyone to laugh
And never let a star shine bright alone

I took her for a ride
Drove many miles
And saw her smile

We sat by the lake
Drank our coffee
Until we got hungry

We ordered sushi from japan
She stole my food from my hand
And ran laughing away from me

She was a cool night
A funny night
A beautiful night
A lovely night

I brought her back home
And I wished her a good night.
From small mistakes you learn something

Thank you aquis for showing my mistakes :)
In another dimension

I swear we know
The sound of each other’s sleep
The smell of each other’s clothes

And we  listen to Pink Floyd while watching ceiling fans spin in the dark
Holding hands

Breathing into one another
Tasting the skin of each other’s necks
Avoiding the world

In another dimension
