love

Cupid's Arrow

Cupid's  arrow

Forgot to aim

Cause it has not  hit my heart yet

Its untouch 

Love has not whisper my name 

Oh no

Not finding anybody

Special for a change

Not finding that person

That set your heart in flames

You know that deep connection 

When your eyes lock

You feel it in your veins

You feel it for days

Cupid's arrow

Forgot to aim

Cause it has not hit 

My heart yet

It's untouch

Love has not whisper my name

Oh no

Don't wanna complain

But me and love are out of sync

Cupid's arrow forgot to aim

Cause it has not hit my heart yet

Love has not whisper my name

Oh no

I'm  left out 

In so many way

Maybe I missed the signs

Maybe I should focus on myself now

Goodbye for now

Can it be real

or am I just fooling myself?  

To believe that your love for me

Has not been put on a shelf

 

Packed away and discarded

Like an old photo or toy

Your pure and unconditional love

Like when you were a boy  

 

Innocent and sweet

You held me in your heart

But now the years and life’s challenges

Have torn us apart

 

You have chosen a path

That is rocky and tough

And my guidance and attempts to divert you

 Have not been enough

 

You ran from youth fast

Confused and unsure

Towards the deceitful blinding light

Of adulthoods allure

 

As I stand here and watch you stumble

Like when you took your first steps

But now unable to help or reach out to you

Now that you’ve fallen into the depts

 

But my hand will always be within reach for you

And my heart open wide

To take hold of either

If you should ever decide

 

I wish you only happiness

And pray you will find

All the things you’ll need in your life

To replace what you’ve left behind

 

I will say goodbye to you

But only for now

Because I know you will find your way back to me

Someday or somehow

written for my son during turmoil in his teens.

Do not weep for me now

Do not weep for me now

For I am back in my mother’s arms

 

Do not morn another day

For I walk in peace

With those who have been waiting in the light

To share their everlasting love

 

Do not be saddened

For I have been blessed with your love

And carry it in my heart

To my new plain of existence

 

Do not be afraid

For I am a part of the light that shines down upon you

And brightens your way towards your future

 

Do not feel lonely

For I am the one who will watch over and protect you

Until we again walk hand in hand

To our eternal place of peace

Author's Notes/Comments: 

For those who are dealing with the loss of a loved one. God bless

Feeding the Flame of Insecurity

As I looked in your eyes

I saw a tiny flicker

As if a small piece of your love for me

Died deep within you

 

A flicker so small

You barely gave it notice

But it blazed like the sun

As it seared my heart

 

I felt my soul shiver

As if your precious gift

Was pulled from body

 

A sickening wave of despair

Passes through me

As I realize your love for me

Will no longer be whole

 

My heart is left broken

And bleeding with regret

Unable to mend the wound

That has been inflicted.

 

Will time heal the damage?

Or will I have to suffer

A slow painful death

As the fire within you

Slowly dies out

 

Shall I continue to fan the flames

That I see still burning inside you?

Or does the fuel for my love

No longer have the capacity to sustain it?

 

I think I shall just close my eyes

And let fate run its course

All For a Dream

How far would you go?

To reach your dreams.

How much of yourself would you forgo?

Split yourself at the seams.

And the family you would forget

Your face they won't recognize

Even yourself, you couldn't see with your own two eyes

Success begets success

At what cost would it take?

You have the work ethic

But love you forsake.

 

To attain a dream,

sometimes bridges must be burned

let go of everything

to show in life what can be earned.

How many hearts must you break?

To feel so bittersweet.

How much love would you forsake?

To make yourself feel complete.

Perfectionist in mind, worker at heart

Life is always moving

So some place you must start

Resistance will occur

Your loved ones you will defer

Because of a dream of life you prefer

All the poems that you write

All the sleepless nights

The guitar you learn to play

Hours spent each and every day

Yourself might slip away

But this dream you must achieve.

 

When one becomes so engrossed

In something they desire

To get the most,

You must add kindling to the fire.

All those that dreamt

Put forth work towards those dreams

Even if that meant,

Losing everything.

They knew at one point

If you put your all in, it'd pan out

And even if it didn't, you lived a life without doubt

Whether done out of spite, or because it felt right, or to prove to oneself

Even going as far as putting aside your own mental health.

Those dreams you feel the urge to pursue

So that one day you may feel at home with Big Blue.

No matter the pain or love you've undone

It's all part of this road that you run

If you truly want it, then you mustn't give up the gun.

 

Years to come, no matter the difficulty or how you feel

Wouldn't you give everything?

To make your dreams become real.

Memories of Love Lost

When I was older, I buried my friend.

When I was older, I had to pretend.

When I was older, I thought about the end.

 

When we were young, songs were sung!

When we were young, we ran from bees that stung!

When we were young, we played on swings and swung!

 

When I was older, I had to change. 

When I was older, life became strange.

When I was older, love was unrequited.


When we were young, was when love was first invited

 

Now I’m old, and wishing I were young. But you’re gone, my soul is sold, and my heart is now wrung.

Free

If I want to die

then let me be

just say bye 

and set me free 

 

Crying on the floor

all alone, like you left me 

on all fours, your knees are sore 

just forget me... and let it be 

 

If I want to die 

then let me be

dont question why 

just say bye 

and set me free

 

Let me fly away, far away

far from here 

I, cannot stay

so let me lay, don’t you fear

 

If regret reappears 

wipe your face, from the tears 

dont you dwell on those years.


So, if I want to die

let me fly 

let me be 

just say bye

and set me free.

Love Letter

How can I say I love you

Without sounding cheesy

”I love you”  there

You make loving you so easy 

 

Affection and nurturing 

Care and caress 

Alleviates my flection of my reflection

And my stress 

 

You found me so low

But with you I’m so high

I‘d miss you when you go

So don’t you ever say bye 

 

The stars in the sky

And the stars in your eyes 

A sky full of stars 

But you are my sky 

 

Keep me close, so I’ll be comfy

Whisper to me that you love me 

I’m not naive when I say

That I want you by my side like every single day

 

To the one I love, may our love never go astray.

They are a perfect way

To say how I feel now

So loving

Red roses

They are perfect way

To say love you
