You think that you were hurting me,
but I promise I was letting you.
Just when you thought the chemistry was waning
and the want to kiss you was fading;
That the thought of us was too real
And that the reality of us working was unreal;
The universe turned us both upside down…
Think about it though!
24 hours in a day,
7 days a week,
We have a choice that seems detrimental if we choose incorrectly;
And yet, we’ve chosen one another…still
31 and 26 years old to date
We both feel like time is running out and tomorrow isn’t even a consideration!
We think and rethink our choices
Nights like this remind us that we are
Indeed too infinite to plan around…
Because we are
By a surrounding so dirty,
By people, so dirty;
My heart will break
My air will be
Look up baby
Because I am watching you and not the television screen
Reading you like a book written in sign language
Playing it safe until I know that you’re ready for me
Taking notes of poetry each time you doubt the kind of love you’ve received… The expectation of perfection only pulls me in; my kiss to your lips are laced with flavors of your past sins, I want to drive you crazy so you learn the real meaning of love without boundaries… I do it all to watch you squirm…
She could fold me up
Like a piece of paper
I was whole
Now I am origami
Titles, they die.
In a bed of roses on
Top of its grave.
I’ll write this broken
Dream a letter,
Until the feeling of reminisce
Hoping that the
Thoughts, can maintain
Like saying goodbye
Being a weakness, instead of
Rest in peace,
To this love.
I’m moving all the way down,
Motions and emotions
You tell me to keep going,
But I stop right…there.
Have I ever told you that your body
And not just any beautiful, more like
The kind that lingers long after one closes their eyes.
Art, changing a non-believer;
Perfect specimen, sexual healer.
You go to hide away,
I pull your hand away,
Baby, I know you…
I love that body like it owns me,
From each curve of your legs, to the sounds your mouth makes,
No dusk nor day break
Can keep you from my head space.
I just wanted to remind you…
You smile behind your frown, feeding me your sad stories. Proud of calculated words dipped in deception, walking backward as I put the puzzle pieces together. Throwing your words in the fireplace, let them blaze into ash through the chimney, metaphoric of how your mouth blows smoke and burned lies into my mind…
Easy to see clearly when cleaned properly.
No blemishes or streaks to block visibility
Outside you’d find sun and palm trees,
But only if you are looking.
Aka, learn from your past, don’t let it stop you from seeing the beauty of what’s ahead of you.
