Name

My lips are sealed unless it’s your name
that I need to say,
your name that wormed its way to my heart
and soul.
I want to savor your name as it rolls from my lips
like the sweetest kiss you gave me to hold.
It’s your name that I often whisper well into the night,
before I fall asleep hoping to see you in my dreams tonight.
It’s your name that I carry with me, the one I draw strength from,
for your name I’ve branded in this heart of mine,
hoping it will never disappear from sight.

It Was

It was the way you held my hand
and how you gazed into my eyes,
that caused this heart to beat so frantically.
It was that smile you gave me
and the way you caressed my face
that sent shivers down my spine.
It was the way you spoke to me
and the way you stood proud beside me
that made me fall in love so easily.
It was the way you sit in silence
and the way you listened to me
that taught me that I am never alone.
It was the way you made me laugh
and how you eased the frown from my brows
that made me want you even more.
It was the way you kissed me softly
and the way you hold me close to your heart
that told me that I’m quite lucky
having you in my life.

This is where I belong, right by your side,
walking with you even on roads you dislike.
I’ll be your companion, your friend, your light,
there’s nothing to be afraid of, no matter what your plight.
I’ll protect you from your shadows,I’ll bear any hurt you feel,
as long as I see you standing tall and unafraid, I’ll be happy as can be.
I’ll hold your hand so you won’t falter, I’ll pick you up when you fall down,
because there is no reason why you should feel alone,
even if you think there’s no one around,
for I’ll always be with you, even though we’re miles apart.
I’ll wipe away the tears that fall from your eyes that perceive,
a different kind of world that you had gladly shown to me.
In everything that you do, I’ll always be with you.
I’ll take care of you, my sweet, because you mean everything to me.

Help me unravel, the secrets that lie within you,
the stories you’ve never shared, the dreams you’ve yet to attain.
Let me unwrap the covers you’ve enveloped yourself with,
even if it means finding the darkness you refuse to let the light shine on.
I’ll take you as you are, with all your scars and pains,
your looks are just superficial, what lies beneath is more important.
Don’t hide from me, don’t shy away,
there is beauty in you that has yet to be revealed.
I am here, I won’t go, I won’t run away,
even if you show me the abyss you’ve been staring into,
and all the demons inside your head,
I’ll still be by your side, holding your hands tight.
Until you realize that you’re perfection incarnate,
in my eyes and will always be.

Let us bury ourselves in the stillness of the night,
and make waves against the sheets of our desires.
As moonbeams glisten on sweat riddled bodies,
that move in sweet synchronization on satin covered land.
Whispered songs shall emanate from lips seeking lips,
and fingers shall trace the land before them with
infinite slowness,
remembering pathways so familiar even with eyes closed.
Oh, how the night trembles with yearning,
as temperature rises above and beyond,
where our heartbeats drum beneath our chests
faster and faster yet in tune with one another.
Climbing towards the stars that look down on us,
until we reach the heavens in each others arms,
where our hearts were destined to be satiated,
with the kind of love that our souls are attuned to.

I Am Done

 

carry me high, carry me wind,
carry me away to be at peace.
my soul is hurting, my sorrow’s returning,
all that i ever wanted, was a chance to be free.

and yet here i am lost at sea, where waters churn,
as storm clouds appear.
rocking my mind, blinding my eyes,
as lightning strikes the heart inside of me.

burning through, burning clear,
the lies you wrapped me up with.
the hopes you instill are but dust in the wind,
now i’m changing, caring is no longer part of my
vocabulary.

there is no happiness in your arms,
you only see me when you’re in need.
the silence between us comes and goes,
all i’m asking is for you to love me too.

here i am, see me true, see me dear.
for i might not be here the next time, you see.
someone will love me, someone will care,
and your tears will fall knowing you forgot
to give those things to me.

you’ll see me smile, you’ll see me laugh,
you’ll wonder why you didn’t see me like that.
you’ll remember the times you left me behind,
and the false hopes you’ve planted
in this heart of mine.

only now you’re reaping what you have sown,
with bitter tears falling down from the skies.
you were given a chance to discover love,
now it’s gone, too late, i am done.

See the light that burns
behind these eyes
as they gaze upon your beauty
irreplaceable.

A chance meeting
in a world wrapped in coded sequences
putting smiles on our faces.

Hit enter to send
words typed into the void
sending sweet shivers down
where they were meant to be.

Endless we thought
this chance encounter will be
yet we’re still apart
how long can this be?

We suffer in silence
while we put on our masks
convince the world with a smile
planted to disguise
the longing and heartache
this secret yearning only we can feel.

Lovers true yet bound by the wiles of fate
keeping us apart, prolonging our agony
extending our misery.

It’s enough that I love

 

It’s enough that I love
the very thought of you,
even from afar I can still feel
the heartache of longing,
penetrating deep within
knowing that it’s impossible
this love I have for you.

It’s enough that I love
those moments we have,
even if they’re just minutes,
rolling to hours,
for days even weeks are beyond us
because I know it won’t be possible
this very thing that I want the most.

It’s enough that I love
the very dream of me and you,
the one we hope we could build
you and I together
perhaps in the future
if the fate allows.

It’s enough that I love
the very essence of us
even as this distance
is keeping us apart
in this world where we are
but two souls searching
the light in each other’s eyes.

No Subtlety

There is no subtlety with the way
these words form in this jagged mind of mine.
They rage and roil and rush in torrents,
coalescing without coherence,
as I struggle to understand
what thoughts are trying to form
in this vast emptiness that they are trying to fill
with words freely flowing with uncertainty,
trying to capture the essence of it all.

The reasons why these words burn and blaze along
leaving trails of memories and forgotten images
of lost loves and present lover
held captive by these unspoken words swirling
in the inky blackness of this mind
that longs for the light.
And to finally unravel the right words from these lips
to tell you the true meaning of this feeling that I have,
the feeling that I call love and all the madness it
comes with it.

Between

Between the sorrows that rain down on me
and the boundless troubles i’m standing on,
there is hope still that comes to save me,
from the anger that seeps and the pain that builds,
between the shadows of my past
and the uncertainty of my future.
i will face them all and be steadfast as i can be.
for i will hold on to the promise i made to thee,
that even though miles lie between us
and our paths rarely cross,
even between the silence that reigns both night and
day,
I will keep the same love I’ve offered you before.
Even when doubts rage and rattle my bones and
brains,
I will keep the love you’ve kindled in me,
until the planets and stars align
and guide you back home to me.
