true love

IF YOU LOVED ME

If you loved me tried and true,

My soft heart I'd give to you.

 

Every night and every day,

Grand sweet dreams would come my way.

 

If you loved me ,if you would,

I would hold you like I should.

 

Never would there be a night,

when I wouldn’t would not hold you tight.

Two Hearts

Folder: 
Confessions

Angel eyes,
James Dean smile,
and a Marcos Not A Hero shirt
He was scouring the room when he found me first
Shy guy type,
crooked spine,
My heart compressed and prepared for the worst
The second he stepped in to my world,
I found my tongue struggling for some words


"I'm a bad conversation,"
I'd say, gripping harder on my first Chardonnay
"How else can you be a conversation?"
he'd flash a smile, flicking the last of his Marlboro Lights

 

And right there and there,
two souls collided into a glorious explosion,
sliding to the grip of the claws of the night
on the way to the familiar road
of sins, misery, and scenic memories

 

After two nights of flying ballistics
and crippling thoughts once abandoned,
Two hearts soon mixed
into a sparkling August poison
A blue bourgeois Libra
And a yellow-bleeding Leo
A pair of delicate, diamond hearts
Defying fate, seeking Cupid's darts
Rising from the dead,
Rising from ash
Rising for the words once left unsaid

 

The thrill of it all is eating me whole 
I feel the shaking ground and the cold air blows
Omens, cautions, and warnings 
Red lights above us all blaring
A whirlwind romance, friends say,
is bound for doom and eventual fade
But his words are enough to hold on to
Words that make my demons fade into view
along with my bad past as I start anew
Away from the dark clouds 
that have crippled me.

A poem about a whirlwind romance.

Rebirth

Folder: 
Confessions

“Who is he?”

I whisper to myself

as your eyes gaze off to the distance

and treat me with the unbearable silence

I’m a little too late, I guess,

I hear your eyes scream, they confess

It is him who holds your heart

The one you’d rather hold your hand

Under the city lights

In a cold November night

 

But my love for you is greater than his.

 

So do the honor and list down the things

you so liked about him

Watch me burn myself with a pile of leaves

and reborn as him

Just let me be your light, your candle tonight

I can be him, your lover, if you like

I’ll cut my wrist, drain the blood my ancestors

passed on to me

Replace it with the words he whispers

when I’m not around

Let his words flow down my veins so you may speak

and tell me all the things you never say to me

Slit my throat with the screen of the phone you use

To capture his face, his smile, the perfection, your muse

Because you never even once

took a picture of me

— or maybe my image is just

too hideous for you to keep?

What strength of lens does he use, you say?

I can smash mine down if it’s not the same

Use the shards to peel off my skin I so badly hate

Blessed is he to have the kind that keeps you sane

I’ll unclench my claws I’ve spent years to build

Pull them out and mold me his hands and feet

Let the blood spritz all over the room

Let them spell: HERE LIES A HOLY FOOL,

WHO SURRENDERED HIMSELF FOR LOVE —

BECAUSE HIS LOVE WAS NEVER ENOUGH.

Tell my mother I died a sweetest death

And I’ll be waiting in line in the Day of Resurrect

Pour out the gasoline all over my corpse for the final touch

Say a short Ignatian prayer before you strike the match

Watch my skin; watch my veins turn to ash, turn to dust,

as I’m enveloped and swallowed by flames

‘Cause I’m tired of fighting, I’m tired of asking,

“Who is Carl, baby? I’m James.”

 

From now on, call me Carl.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

A poem about wanting and loving someone so much you are willing to turn yourself into someone else.

Ready to be happy

I stay up wondering when will the time come

I ask myself why not me

I see others with such joy and happiness

It's as if that joy was not meant for me

I know she's out there but when will we meet

Its only a matter of time i hope

For that happiness I see i want for me

The Simplicity

Why do I love you?

Well,

Why does the Mockingbird sing, and

Why does the coal smolder?

 

Why do I love you?

Well,

Why does the flower wilt, and

Why does the star burn?

 

Why do I love you?

I love you because I simply do.

Just as you are simply beautiful, and

As I am simply crazy for you.

 

Just as the Moon simply conducts the ocean,

You simply guide my heart.

Just as a princess simply seizes her assassin,

You simply captivate my thoughts.

 

Just as an incurable disease simply invades a body,

You simply conquer my being.

Just as a prisoner simply notches tallies into stone,

You simply were engraved into me.

 

Why do I love?

Well, because you are simply the way you are.

But the real question is,

Do you love me?

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.

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

I love you, My Sweet Man!

Please, Don't Go

Please don't go --  

I hardly knew you.   

I hardly knew whether you  

liked your carrots and hummus with  

blueberry tea, chai, or if you  

preferred water.  I hardly knew  

if pancakes were your favorite  

with fresh fruit, or if waffles  

could have been substituted.   

I hardly knew if classical music was  

your jam, though Hozier definitely broke  

through. 


Please don't go,  

I need you whole and  

I love you so; your presence gives me  

flutterbys that calm my crazy stomach.   

I hardly knew whether Scarlett  

matched your eyes.   

I hardly knew if your taste in literature  

was acquired, like that sweet tooth for ice cream,  

or if your very genes turned on  

the expression of a bookworm.   

I hardly knew the soles of your glorious feet  

and where they would want to be planted,  

given the chance to take root.   

hardly knew if your sleepy eyes  

looked for mine  

before guiding your consciousness  

into dreams. 


Please don't go.   

I want you forever, and  

I know that's selfish, but  

I've never expressed greed like this  

before.   

You are the sweetest notes  

to ever grace my ears;  

sweeter than the twinkling of  

the brightest star,  

sweeter than the tigers spoken by Mary Jane,  

sweeter than any ice cream I could possibly name. 


So please don't go --  

you keep me whole.   

I love you so.

A Year Together

Folder: 
Poems of Love

 

So far, our forever,

Is one year old, today,

And to you, my Love,

I have this, to say:


Its been a year of love,

Of laughter, even tears.

Of learning each's dreams-

Our hopes, and our fears.


A year of hugs and cuddles,

And the sweetest of kisses.

Of whispering to you secrets,

And all my deepest wishes.

 

In you, have I discovered,

The missing half, of my heart.

I've found my one true love,

From whom I'll never part.

 

This is only year one,

Of the rest of our lives,

And how we'll show the world,

That our true love...survives.

To The Love of My Life...Gary <3 

I Love You!!!

The Perfect Love

Folder: 
Just a thought!

Loving you and you loving me, was more than I could ask for

Everyday we spend together, is better than the last

The endless walks we take together along the sandy shore

Wading through my time with you, passes all too fast

I will spend more time in the garden with you

Till the evening decends on daylight hours

Waiting inside for my princess now,

While she waters the evening flowers

Tonight we'll rest on a reclining sofa

For our special, after dinner nap

My Princess beside me, with love in her eyes...

And her paws across my lap.
