Soulmate

Here.

Here

Have my soul

Consume me whole

Drink me down

Please, don't drown

I'll be your life raft

You can make me laugh

Don't get lost

I'll keep you around at any cost

I'll map out the endless rivers;

& oceans that lead back to me

I'll write you all the fucking poetry

Because I know you'd do the same for me

 

Here

Have my heart

My art

My poetry

My everything

I'll even sing you to sleep

Whatever you need

I truly want to see you succeed

I see what you don't see

A remarkable fucking human being

Striving, surviving

Talent, endless potential

The same caramel skin as I

Living dead, but alive

 

Here

You can have my thoughts

Untie these nooses

Throw these pills away

Mother fucker, you are here to stay

I don't want to admit it but...

I need you

You're my life line

I'll untie my nooses too

Throw my pills away with you

There's no "too little to late"

Distance, you're in another state

You're still here, guy

You. Are. Alive.

We survive

 

Here

You can have my secrets too

I'll bleed into you

You can have my sleep

My voice

I do this by choice

Please, stay

Don't go away

I need you

Here

 

Fuck.

The Beauty in Love & Art

I doubted I would find real, mutual love for the longest time.

That is only because I've looked in the wrong places and have fallen hard every time I thought

I found a missing part of me.

 

The problem with me is I don't fit in when I'm in any other group.

All around me in my daily life, I end up doing things I didn't want to do.

My life is getting stuck between a rock and a hard place when I choose

To be something I feel is right for me.

 

You're not hard to please for you are a fellow artist who shares my passion and attraction.

We color each other's worlds and we help each other out when we need it the most.

I give you my passion and you give it back in return.

We are not dependent on one another because we can take care of ourselves.

 

The sea leads to many places and although I have not landed where I needed to go,

You found me and led me in the right direction.

With you and me together, "lost" has no meaning.

We are simply taking our time to get to where we need to be.

 

The forsaken world and everything that was wrong with it will be far behind

Once I leave what destroyed me before and look for who I am.

The chains that keep me from breathing no longer exist

When I am somewhere else in the consciousness hidden within.

 

The art I color is vital to me as taking a breath.

Likewise, the more we are next to each other,

The more I see how selfless and warmhearted you are.

 

The way you treat me thaws my own heart until there is a flame that surrounds it.

A flame that only burns when you and I continue to bond.

Only you can see and feel how special it is to me that you make me feel that way.

I dream of us meeting face to face so we can make our artistic worlds come to life.

 

You teach me many things that I hold onto in my life.

Being with you helps me resist temptation that hinders my goals.

Speaking my tongue to you helps me become wiser in knowing the right things to say.

Presenting my own art to you helps me gain the courage to keep blossoming until my colors bloom like summer flowers.

More importantly, revealing my hopes and dreams to you gave me the escape from misery I longed to achieve.

 

In return for your kindness, I give you my passion and complete our missing soul.

To truly build up trust, all we have to do for each other is stay and that's what I will do for you.

My First Real Love

Folder: 
This Love

 

You came suddenly into my life,

-a most unexpected surprise.

But all at once, my first real love,

was right there, before my eyes.

 

In these many months since then,

I've known love like never before.

Because at last, and finally,

I'm with, my long-lost boy-next-door.

 

You make me feel such amazing things,

I thought I'd buried deep down, away.

Things I felt, I had to forever hide,

Lest they caused my heart to fray.

 

But always, you were there,

tucked into, the memories of my mind.

And always a place, in my heart, you held,

never dreaming you, one day, I'd find.

 

But now that we're finally together,

I'll never again, let you get away from me.

Too many years were wasted for us...

You see, we were always meant to be.

 

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

For My Gary...my boy-next-door, my heart, my past, my future...my first real love.

I love you, My Sweet Man!

true love! 2015

True love! 2015

 

there are two kinds of love i know one is for a friend

the other for your soul mate to which there is no end

when two hearts meet it's a gift from heaven above

thats when you hope and pray that it will be true love

you look at him across the room and when your eyes do meet

his smile is enough to excelerate your already fast heart beat

then you know with all your heart you'll never wanna part

it has you thinking with all your might it must be true love

he'll want to spend his time with you just because your you

your all he wants now and forever thats when you'll say i do

and when you do you'll feel just like a soaring dove

and you'll know with out a doubt that it really is true love

Smile lines :)

There it is,

your infectious laugh!

catching me off guard and pulling me into light

smiling glints of warm in your eyes

every slight, every insult lashed upon my grace

forgotten,  melted away,

lost in that throaty yet light warm chuckle,

oozing charm and charisma every time 

I am lost in your joy, 

hug me close and make me feel alive and real

kiss my love with your soul 

wrap me in your happiness 

its the only kind I live for...

 

 

hugss 

xo 

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

and she let out a contented sigh* 

all my love.

Waiting in the rain

I remember how you looked that day

The morning, you went away

I remember everything you said

I could not speak just softly breath away

 

Upon the shore, about to leave

There were just too many voices in my head

It was the first day of a morning spring

A cold chill the moment on that day

 

I stood and watched you with a smile

I never saw you without a thing to say

As we stand today close for a while

Your warm body comforts me so today

 

I know in a cool summer rain

I think of you, once more again

I’ll never know why, I could not say

Just how hard it was for me that day

 

The time has now frozen on my lips

As I stood on the dock alone that day

And I watched as you slowly drift away

On walls the cold water always drips

 

The chill of the cold won’t lose its grip

And hangs from my neck like a chain

To think of you just once more again

And how warm you felt in the cold dark rain

 

I don’t think I will ever know

And how fast the time did go

I will always feel deep down in my heart

We were just, never meant to part

 

Soul mates never let go, and will love again

So here I wait in the cold spring rain

Knowing you will be back again

As I leave my cold body in the rain

Soul Mate.

They say you're not supposed to look for your soulmate,
Because you'll run into each other on your own, if it's fate, 
I believe I found her once, but I let her push me away,
By the time I realized we were meant to be, it was already, too late,
And for the longest time I hated myself, for not fighting to make her mine,
Instead, now, I watch every day as she dies a little more inside,
She is now completely submerged in darkness, and I once was her light,
Now is blinded by hate, And I can do nothing to give her back her sight,
I try to bring myself to talk to her, but I feel she's already too gone,
I hate myself for not letting her know what she meant to me, for taking so long,
They say if you let your soulmate go, you will never find happiness with another,
And so far it has proved to be true, even though we were never truly together,
Sometimes I can't sleep, my thoughts are always on her,
This is my fault, I let her go, this is my curse,
She is my other half,
And without her, I'm almost positive I will not last,
With her I was finally something,
Now, I will be forever nothing,
I know you will read this eventually, my lost soul mate, and when you do,
You will know that my heart is still yours, my soul is still for you,
You know who you are, I need not speak any names,
Just know that the feelings I have for you,
Will never fucking change.
They say that if you love something, to let it go and if it comes back it was meant to be,
Darling, you have yet to finally come back to me,
And when you do, and we are finally together, at last,
I won't let you slip away again, because you are in fact, my other half.

We rise, we rest.

We are partners.
Paired - but not out of need.
Attracted - but not out of fear.
Complete - in our individual wholeness.


The calm we feel
is only equal to our passion
for ourselves, our life and the thirst for more.


We give
to ourselves what we need,
to our partners what we want,
and to the world around us
love to heal.


We are not perfect
but we don't expect ourselves,
our partner,
to be.


We are merely
grateful,
trusting,
and powerful
in our commitment
first to god
then self
then each other.


For us
that is the only way.


We rest calmly
in the glow of our own godliness
our own frailty
and our own compassions.
What a glorious light
we have.

Two Paths

Folder: 
Loss

When we met it was sparks,
Igniting inside something long lost.
Nothing did I feel come close to this,
Intense and utter joy.

Inseparable we were,
Form the first day.
I couldn't get enough of you,
In every single way.

I lived to be with you,
To make you happy and smile.
Because my heart melted,
When I felt your warmth.

We talked for hours,
About nothing and everything.
Just holding hands while slept,
Was all the comfort I needed.

Then it happened in such a horrible way,
It all stopped and went away.
I was lost, I was drowning,
In this void I now call life.

Where do I go, what do I do,
When all I want is just you.
I'd do anything, with no limits,
To get you back in my arms.

Lower and lower we kept falling,
further and further we drifted.
No matter the struggle and fight,
I couldn't get back to you.

You say you love me,
But you always push me away.
You say you want to be with me,
But you never even stay.

 

You say you want to share my life,
But only what you choose.
You say we're a team,
But I always seem to lose.

Why can't we just be happy,
With the lives that we have.
Two lives to share,
But I only see my half.

Stop fighting and let me in,
It'll be OK I swear.
You'll always be safe with me,
You have nothing to fear.

Why can't we just be happy,
With the lives that we have.
Two lives to share,
But I only see my half.

Now you're gone and I'm alone,
All I wanted was you in my home.
I can't stop, I don't know why.
It hurts not having you by my side.

But I must go on without you,
Keep trudging this road.
All the memories of happiness,
To help me bear this load.

Why can't we just be happy,
With the lives that we have.
Two lives to share,
But I only see my half.

We were meant to be together,
Grow old with each other.
Laughing and smiling, happy and loving,
You were the other half to my soul.

 

How does heart torn apart continue beating,
When all it wants to do is stop.
How does a soul continue living,
With only half to go on.

Why can't we just be happy,
The way we know how.
Why can't we have each other,
One life instead of two.
