Sleep my love

I love the way sleeping lovers lie.

The gravitational pull that brings them closer together as the night unwinds.

They become entangled in each other

Never hurting or harming, simply nurturing

Each soul, it’s a playing ground of peace

The slow of the heart beat

The cool of the skin

The quietness of just existing together…

It’s truly a beautiful dance.

“Are you afraid?”

Today, we look for beauty of the body, not the Mind.

Wealth in money, not the Soul.

Strength in muscle, not in Willpower.

We confuse lust for Love.

Blame others for our own wrong doings.

Cry when we drop our phones,

But avoid shedding a tear when someone threatens to leave.

We’ve become black holes who are afraid of emotions

Instead, we let those things called feelings decay in orbit.

We fear failure, therefore assume you just start at the top.

And if you don’t, one day you will, no need to work.

So, you ask if I’m afraid.

Yes, afraid one will only want me for my body

Not my mind, for that they run from.

Only want me when I succeed

My soul is nothing, my willpower, weak.

Say they love me, then leave, because it was all just lust.

Afraid that one day, I’ll become like them,

The sorry saps who think only of themselves.

Avoid feeling, communicating, and soon being.

Tell me, how could one succumb to such numbness?

There are things that make me think of you

Things that only you would do

How does one move on

When all they knew are now gone

Some say you smoke to remember and drink to forget

But these days both remind me of that day

The late winter, the frigid cold

I think it snowed that day, or maybe it rained

I guess it’s all the same

Days pretending everything’s okay

Nights conveying I’m still sane

When will it end, the matter of coping

I guess we’re just stuck, simply hoping

One day all will be fine

As they say…only with time.

Oldie but Goldie

This in an older one that I just stumbled upon! Written back in October:

With the days drifting away

Autumn turning into winter

The slow of your heart beat

And the warmth of your kiss

All I ask is for you to know this

In dreams, with you I am free

As we dance among the lilies

And love under the trees

Why, you’re a spirit I never thought I’d meet

A wish I made years ago

Well this, this is pure bliss

When I’m with you happiness radiates

So much so I know the world can feel it

Now that you’re here, I ask you not to go

For love for you is so raw and so pure

My dear, you are a blessing, that is for sure

Poison

Confined in this solitude, the silence of the void

Yet your laughter still resonates in my ear.

They drank your poison for far too long

Tasted your pain, only to crave more.

It’s addicting, the mental torture, the emotional rage.

Little did I know, how much you managed to obtain.

Leaving me to ponder, constantly pace.

How much they can endure, until they can comprehend

How to break the chains, without losing themselves.

The brain, you see, is such a game.

A strange invention, quite complex…

I’d say I was lucky and had broken free,

From your sadistic torture, thinking I was sober

Yet here I am still addicted to just the thought of you.

Midnight love

It’s tonight, in this fading light,

We relearn the things we once forgot.

We’ll fall in love again,

And understand the things we can’t quite comprehend.

The night casts its’ charm

While we lay here in each other’s arms.

Waves crashing, stars illuminating your eyes.

The sound of love bursting like glitter in the night sky.

We start to see things we’ve never seen before,

A new wrinkle above ones brow,

A little dimple hidden in the corner of your smile.

Can it be, all the the things we once thought were wrong?

As one takes a deep breath you hear a new beat,

An alluring sound that makes this all complete.

You think of all the times longing for this day,

When you realize your love has been embodied

By the one who you share your soul.

When love was young, we took it for granted

Now that out love has aged, it doesn’t wither away?

It’s tonight, in this radiant moonlight

Looking into the clear sky,

You realize…it’s become impossible to say goodbye.

Ocean Stars

Under a million stars I fall

For this iridescent melody,

As the waves crash against the rocks

Creating enchanting harmonies.

I’m enveloped in this cool dark air,

Sensing a release from the thoughts that harnessed me,

Lack of simplicity can lead to toxicity;

As a caged mind can only rattle the chains so many times.

Feelings of drowning in time yet to come,

I look to the sky and see her shining bright.

Why, I’ve danced this dance many a night.

Breathing in this soft ocean air,

It captivates me, lifting this haze with her charm

I am at home in this light, this perfect moonlit night.

Hello!

Welcome to my blog! This is quite an exciting adventure I’ve begun. I thought for the first post I would explain a little of what I do. This blog is where I will post my writings. I have always loved expression through words and have found it time to post them to the world. My hope is that others will read the poems and feel the emotions in which they convey.

In light of summer just beginning, here is the first poem that I’d like to share!

Happy Summer!
