long distance

Six Hours Away

I am curled in your dreams, waiting,

Awaiting your return to this realm.

Spending the hours you sleep,

Dreaming, of our tomorrows, when,

Awake at the same time, we touch,

Caress, and I hold the phantom of your body, missing from my life.

I pray, and I plead, barter with the universe and gods,

To put us in the common air, common landscape of each other's skin.

I want to touch that skin,

To match it to the words from my lips,

they glide over your tender reply,

But til distance, vanished,and the ardent rise of your response,

Taste and scent memories will fill the empty times that you sleep,

While I, in my dayllight life, live without you.

Distance

She is deep. I am not.
She cares deeply about the world. She longs for knowledge and to understand the complex workings of this little hunk of rock that we call home. She wants to know everything and that fascinates me.

I am fragile. I know as much about this cruel world as i care to. Her thirst for knowledge fascinates me, as i switch off the news and protect my ignorant mind from it all.

She is patient and gentle when everything feels too much and the world seems overwhelming and i fear i am broken. She doesn't claim that she can heal me, but rather has faith that I can heal myself and promises to be there while I do it.

It scares me. Because I am alone. I have always enjoyed being alone. But now, the yearning in my bones scares me. It makes me feel small in this huge, cruel world. And yet, I wouldn't change it for anything.

I have learnt to hate the ocean. That strange dark deep unknown. It stretches out endlessly between us, only a few inches on in a map, but days and pounds and a lifetime away. I used to love the ocean, I want to love it again, but for now it is the enemy, the villain of our story, keeping me from her.

The longing, the tears, the strange new feeling of missing someone? I wouldnt change it for anything. Because she is mine. And I am hers. No matter the ocean between us.

Chill

 

That’s fucked up Liam.
Really England?
You dropped me to go see him?
Now you’re saying I didn’t give you any freedom?

Get the fuck up.
I don’t care if you’re strapped down.
I am tired of fucking around.
You wanted to cheat on me right?

You fucking whore
What’s real anymore?
Was that picture real?
Do you still want to Netflix and chill?

Fuck it. Im putting this entire situation on the grill
Open up this burger and drop a pill in it
Serve it to your ass. Call it nightlock
and shove you in the back of my truck

Cause you’re never going to wake up.  Tough luck
Now sit back and don’t make a cluck
You’re like a chicken. You can’t fly but you can pluck
Chuck out your feathers and shit but you tuck it. Kinda like Liam. You fucked it.

I don’t care about your feelings. I don’t give a fuck
Girl. Want to know the price of that flower bill?
Three hundred but it felt like a couple mil.
Hell. We were kids back then

Or we were until you climbed that hill
All the way up to lick Liams rich dick.
My dads name was Rick.
He doesn’t care about a fuckin chick

Should have taken a guitar pick and flicked
Guess I should have learned from my brother Nick
Smoke weed til I got sick
Flip out. Don’t even try to pout

I think we are on the same route
No one can hear you
Go ahead and shout.
I don’t doubt that you suck

If I was you I'd close my snout

my one and only

I feel like without you my world will be grey,
I'll work on myself and do my own thing but it'll never be the same.
Without you here a piece of me will be gone
I hope that when you leave it won't be for to long. 
I know that this is a great opportunity
But I can't help fear what will become of you and me.
It's difficult for me to say all that I truly feel
I just want you to know that my love for you is real.
I'll do my best and try to be strong
Remember the words of our old love song
L is for the looks ill always miss
O is for that one sweet kiss
V is for the very moment you come back
And E is for everything this poem lacks...
It's like these feelings are to much for me to explain
But I know you and I, we feel the very same.
So This is to us and what may come
Just know that your my only one

from long before the sun rises
'til long after the sun sets
my thoughts
from waking 'til dreaming
are often of  you

of making you smile
of making you laugh
and even
of making you cry
with words meant
to draw feeling

not of viciousness
or of cruelty
but of  feeling
and connecting

of being together
though thousands of miles
are between your heart and mine

we're beneath the same sun
the same stars

distance is only
a measurement

and thoughts
can cross a universe

So Far Away

Folder: 
To You, My Love

You are so far away,
We are so far apart,
Yet somehow you have managed
To grab ahold of my heart.

Now, suddenly, I have found
That I have aquired
An emotion, a question,
That many inquire.

Is it love?
Is it true?
Are you the one for me,
And I for you?

Rare is a second
You are not on my mind.
We are in eachother's hearts,
And our hearts are intertwined.

Now not even the many miles
Between us is enough
To tear us apart
From being in love.

For you are so far away,
And we are so far apart,
Yet somehow you have managed
To grab ahold of my heart.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

To someone far away who I miss more than words can explain.

No Distance

No distance can keep our love apart
When I listen closely, I can actually hear the beating of your heart
A hug brings our souls together and almost immediately
we both feel healed from the time spent apart

I've deeply fallen in love with you,
Me. And not the person someone wished me to be 
I can say this was written in prophecy
Many have tried, but failed to see
I want this to be simple yet unique
I want that forever, you'll stay with me.

The tears that shed your eyes
Those are the rain drops which fall from my skies 
No matter how shallow it gets by the minute
I promise I will swim in your love until I drown in it

Everyday I walk through our memories but I cannot get passed it,
And I'm still living in the moments of our last kiss.
It's been eternal since that first November 
I can disappear and exist in your soul forever.
 
"Hard as the concrete but soft as a whisper"
That's how your love hits me, but I cannot blame you,
Because its not everyday we get the chance to save an angel.

Fading Away

Folder: 
2010-2012 Poems

 

Piercing pain.
Raining inside.
I travel 1/8th of the world
Twice a month,
Apart from my work-
Just to be with you.

But even if we’re streets apart
It feels you’re still some miles away:
Busy, disconnected,
Always somewhere, detached,
Even when you’re here.

We said we will try
Where is “we”?
You asked me: “Be here with me.”
Rain or shine;Sickness and in health;
I am here. Always.
Where are you?

“Next time is coming soon baby”
That was nearly a year ago.
Time is so precious
For you and your work-
“Next time” never came by.
It’s not the waiting baby
Not even going there
It’s your promise, your words
The trusting and hoping
Should I stop believing? 

Three knives in my heart:
Time -is not on our side;
Distance -we’re worlds apart;
I can deal with that…
But the worst part is
You and I -becoming strangers at heart.

Make the Miles Disappear

So many miles

From you to me

When all I can do

Is dream of you

And what we could be

I never had someone

So perfect as you

So perfect for me

So beautiful

My eyes can't see

Blinded by you

Wishin that we

Had some way

To fastforward the days

Til we could have

What we know is right

What we feel in our hearts

So these miles

Don't keep us apart



One day we may

Work it all out

Leave out the doubt

Say face to face

All these things

We say

So constantly

Wishin that we

Could make the miles disappear



How can this be

That the one that I need

Is so far away

Yet everything

I never believed

Really could be

Really for me

So wonderful

So unbelievably

Everything of my dreams

Why is it she

Is not here with me

She's somewhere out there

Where I know I can't be

Because I'm right here

Wishin that we

Could make those miles disappear



One day we may

Work it all out

Leave out the doubt

Say face to face

All these things

We say

So constantly

Wishin that we

Could make the miles disappear



These miles

They are so unfair

They're killin me

So very slowly



One day we may

Work it all out

Leave out the doubt

Say face to face

All these things

We say

So constantly

Wishin that we

Could make the miles disappear



And forget what we both had

Before we met

The ones that weren't worth

The time to regret

Forget all our past

Only to see

What lies ahead

For someone like you

And for someone like me



I'll wait around

For all eternity

If that's what it takes

For me to be

Happy with you

And you happy with me

Nothing can keep us apart

Not time, not space, or the miles between



One day we may

Work it all out

Leave out the doubt
