Take me back
To the good ol' days
When things were simple
And we'd laugh and play
And spend our days
Dreaming of Adventure
Somewhere far away.
Not a care in the world
When you were my brightest pearl,
My most treasured friend
Until it all came to an end,
A sudden halt,
A brutal death.
It fell away and we grew apart
Now I walk around with a broken heart,
Pretending I'm okay
And all I can stand to say is
Honey, I'm just
F ooled so many times when
I nside you were screaming
N ow ashes are all thats left
E vermore full of anger and hatred.
I watch fond memories burn
In the fires of misunderstanding
And a little girl sits on the pavement
But you're not there.
But please believe
No matter what
You were there
And I celebrate
While I mourn
As life goes on
Don't sit me by the Window
for fear of Dancing Lights,
Mesmerized and lost
with thoughts of Freedom
Watch the streams of gold,
the cascades of lapis lazuli,
Watch the sprouted saplings,
-and the great oaks of old.
You've a look reserved for me-
a warmth that penetrates the soul,
For a Solitary Animal
knows a Love that knows no Foes.
There's a lightness to your touch
- tingles down my spine...
palpitations in my Chest-
Your loveliness brings out the best in me
and the rest of Life...
No need to feel Inadequate,
No need to recompense.
To bask in pure Tranquility-
It's only Common Sense.
I'm yours by the right of True Love,
I'm yours, Always & Forever, true,
Here's a problem we need not solve:
...I Simply Love You...
Tuesday, May 15, 2012 (original post date)
I wrote this some time ago and it won 2nd place in a poetry contest my senior year of high school. I hope you like it!
What would I give if I could live outside of these four walls?
What would I pay to spend the day warm in your arms?
Your fingertips caressing my skin,
the way dolphins swim through calm waters.
Your lips brushing against mine
sends a wave crashing against the shoreline.
But why go through the pain
of knowing I'll stay the same?
Knowing that these images that stream,
in my eyes are nothing but a dream...
You see me standing here, not your average girl.
You can search the world, and I'll be your only pearl.
I could have been your one and only,
you wouldn't have to spend your days so lonely.
But a tigress cannot change her stripes,
and just as a river is ever flowing, everchanging,
I'm always ripe, and your heart is rearranging,
making space for someone you can't have forever,
kissing my forehead and saying
"But baby, we're cute together."
What you don't know is I can swim in those eyes,
and be lost in your lies,
as I gleefully spin and swirl, twist and twirl,
without a care in the world.
Your voice is as intangible as this love,
humming and resonating in my heart like a dove,
as it coos and sings
of much more impossible things.
But your whispers are a gift to mankind
as it makes my skin rise
and I willingly fall into your arms
and you grin at me with all your charm.
Come and sit a while with me so I can listen to you breathe
and make you believe
and you'll draw the conclusion
that what you see before you is naught but an illusion...
I walked away this morning and didn't look back.
I didn't want false hopes that you would chase me.
On a day like today, like a sudden attack,
I realized how much I wanted you to embrace me.
Catch me when I fall,
start me when I stall.
Tickle me when I'm serious,
slap me when I'm delirious.
Hold me when I'm crying,
stay with me when I'm dying.
We may not make it through today,
We may not die together.
But for now all I need you to say is "I love you"
and make me light as a feather.
