love story

Dramatic tunes

Dramatic tunes play in my mind

as I wait in bed for your replies

Took a trip, tried to listen to

A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships

But boy, I really should take note

that 1975 was never the year

that the internet was born 

then lives got weird

 

Dramatic tunes swirl in my mind

Nauseating and mesmerizing, all at once

I trace all the pieces I could find

to draw the image that may resemble you

and draft the letters I could think of

but never would I send to you

 

Dramatic tunes leech on my mind

Trying to design my last demise

The nothingness on their side,

churning violence all coincide

 

Dramatic tunes play in my mind 

As I wait for your replies 

The darkness would soon arrive

here and hear my last goodbye

The flock of crows are closing in

Floating just three feet above

But then I feel my eyes flinch

As the phone buzzed

A poem about the anxiety you have when you're not sure someone's still interested of you or not anymore. 

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.

Genesis

Folder: 
Confessions

I was but a faithless faithful married to my odes

A paradox of love and hate

A chainless slave of death

The master of a destiny roaming down lonesome roads

 

You came one day and I knew what to expect

Dark-red roses and a month for my heart to wreck

Like many of my poems, this love too will come to dust

In the comfort of the night, this bond will start to rust

 

But your light is stronger than my pessimism

Like a blanket in a stormy night, you envelope me

The touch and warmth of your skin tells me to believe again

In the vision of a tomorrow where I’ll never be alone again

 

With your lips, I remember my youth and hopes and dreams

With your hands, you take me back before I began to fear

With your tongue, you breathe life to my long-lost faith in heaven

With your eyes, I begin to hope and love again

 

And so then I took down my Berlin Wall,

Forgetting my sorrow and fear to fall

The Cold War is now over and the Sun has come

Here comes the Summer I've waited years to come

 

A puzzle I want to unravel,

You upped my curiosity

You bring more questions than answers

Testing my long-held tenacity

 

Years of reasons have finally abandoned my sanity

What is left is your voice and the visions of our promises

Gone are the days I preferred Rand and Hegel than your predictable daily updates

I now only crave for your fucked-up emojis and monotonous 'Hi's' and 'Hey's'

 

Wreathe me with your holy Marian poetry

As I undress my Peregrine peculiarity

Cast away the bedlam of the world

And cover me with your celestial words

 

If this love is a game of dark and light

Take me to Bethlehem where the stars breathe life

I'll lead you to my deepest sorrow

Off to Gethsemane our hearts shall go

To Really See Each Other

The night was clear, the stars shined bright and the moon was full and it gave a strong silver light that allowed them to see each other completely. They were sitting on the grass, one in front of the other, just a few inches away. They were silent, they wouldn’t dare to say a word, not even there at the outside of the city, where they knew no one would hear them. They looked at each other calmly, as if they hadn’t seen before, maybe because it was partially right, this was certainly not the first time they had seen but never had they looked at each other like that, deep in the eyes, no lies this time, so vulnerable and yet so fearless.

 

One broke the silence and then it all came so natural that it seemed as if they hadn’t talked in ages, but then again this was probably right too. They talked about their dreams, about their wishes, about their past, about their future. One told the other that he planned to move to New York to become a playwright and how badly he wanted his plays to make it to Broadway, the other simply said he wanted to make it out of the small town they lived in, to see the world, know places, meet people and learn new things. Maybe they could make it, who knew? The world is full of unlikely events and maybe their dreams were one of those, or maybe they weren’t but on that moment it didn’t matter, in that moment it was all possible and they were convinced they would make it, in that moment it was them against the world and that was all that was needed.


The hours passed by and the moon crossed the sky and the two young boys realized that it was time for them to part ways, for the night was soon to be over and their little world with it. The silent came back as fast as it was once gone and they both stared at each other again for a few seconds. “I think I love you” said one of them in a shaky voice that could hardly be heard by the other; he wasn’t sure if he did, he wasn’t even sure that he could tell even if he did feel it, for he didn’t know what love was but he was sure he was ready to learn. “I guess I love you too” replied the other, also unsure of what he felt. The first one reach out to touch the other’s face and without knowing the latter leaned forward and kissed him. It was a rather awkward kiss, both first, and yet for some reason it just felt right. As soon as it was over they stood up, shook their clothes and said goodbye as fast as they could, for they had to hurry on their way back home. “See you at school” said one of them.

 


The other arrived home, got in without making any noise in order to not wake his parents and lay in bed wide awake for a while; ‘see you in school’, this phrase kept rumbling in his head as he was falling asleep, sure they would see each other at school on Monday but would they really see each other? Would they even talk to each other? Even if the other was willing to, would he be? He closed his eyes, sure of the answer to those question.

Wrong Turns

Folder: 
1995

Here we are in the darkness of the night

We’re in the part of town with no street lights

Baby, it’s another wrong turn

But we seem to never learn

 

We are two cars at 2 am with no headlights

We both got no plans how to stay, how to drive

Mistaking red flags for runway lights

It feels so wrong but seems so right

 

Then I said, "Let's have time apart"

I thought it would sway from you my heart

Two months and four guys had passed

Nothing but this love would last

 

We let go and turn away

We cross roads then angers fade

You always know how to lead me on

Leave me breathless every touch of dawn 

 

I should just ask you to leave all this behind

But even me don't want to leave you behind

Because I know we'll just keep getting back

And I know this love will keep coming back

 

You’ve got your sweet smile and star tattoo on your chest

I’ve got my dreamy eyes always hoping for the best 

You're the only love I know that feels right

I'm the one you think who brings your world light

 

Sometimes, wrong turns lead you to the right places

At times, bad moves take us to the best days

'Cause love is a tempting rose garden filled with sharp thorns

And not every love story has a prince with a white horse

Story Ends

Folder: 
Lovespeak

So this is how the story ends

My heart is broken and bent

I foresaw it a thousand times

I still told myself they were lies

 

You said it in the simplest way

It hurt me in a cruelest way

The words you said echoed in my head

I couldn't sleep in my drowning bed

 
I stood my ground 'til the end
I held my head up to pretend 
But my eyes never concealed it
My aching heart never fought it
 
So, from class to class, I went out
'Cause from time to time, I broke down
As I opened the bathroom door
I fell and broke down the hard floor
 
I wipe my tears away
Try to forget this day
I fill the glass and have a drink
Down this lonely room I will sink
 
As this sad story ends,
So is my foolishness
After the long process, 
I promise I'll love again
 
Still, I'm glad this story ends
It may take time to unbend
Someone is out there, I believe
Born to make me happy not grieve
 

Life Goes On

They say love sucks, I'll have to agree.
Guess i was too blind to read between the lines..
And even though you've come to resent me,
I know you still think about the good times.

How could you forget the promises?
How dare you walk away?
Fuck your memories. You're dead to me, I send my condolences.
But my heart is still screaming, "please don't go baby, wait."

Like Drake said, I don't trip over what ain't mine.
But without you, what am I supposed to do?
Scratch that, I'll be just fine..
Cause life goes on with or without you.

Proceed With Caution

They told me, the right one comes along if you just wait.
They told me that, patience is key.
But they also told me, I should decide my own fate,
So with one look at her, I decided her soul mate is who I wanted to be.

Somehow, someway, I was able to catch her attention..
Boy, was I feeling on top of the world.
But if you thought what we had was an unbreakable connection,
You wouldn't believe how the rest of this love story unfurled.

The aftermath of what started off beautifully, was an ugly mess.
She should've walked around with a tab that read, "proceed with caution,"
Cause she came and took everything inside of me, nothing less..
Now I'm left alone sinking in this love boat, cause she was my captain.

This Is How I Feel

Folder: 
Just For Fun

It Can’t Rain Everyday,
But as the Daylight falls;
When Angels and Serpents Dance,
I’ll Be Ready.
For Today,
As the rain is Descending Upon Us;
This Lifewar is Collapsing.
I feel Blood In The Tears
As this Internal Cannon
Is Driving Nails into my soul.

I remember the Story Of Us
And remember when you were Mine.
Tell Me Why, You’re Not Sorry,
I was Innocent in The Way I Loved You.
We were Fifteen and Fearless;
I thought our Love Story would last
Forever And Always.
I was Enchanted, as the Sparks Fly.
Memories take me Back To December,
And reminds me that the Last Kiss
Was Better Than Revenge.

I’m Haunted, I’m Addicted,
But that’s just the Tip Of The Iceburg.
Where Do I Go From Here?
I wanted to Curl Up And Die.
Sorrow makes it so hard to Breathe Today.
You want me to Let It All Out,
So Here We Go.

You’re The One I’m Waiting For
And they say that the Best Is Yet To Come.
But I’m Buried Beneath,
Or So I Thought.
I’m So Sick,
I can feel you All Around Me.

I’m Sorry.

I Just Want You To Know,
You’ll Always Be My Best Friend.
You’re in my Atmosphere,
Even when you’re Gone.
Hey Now, I need a Getaway Car;
Turn on the Ignition ‘cause Suddenly,
I’m All In, I’m Letting Go.
Whoopsi Daisy, I’ve caught a fire.
This “No Ordinary Love Song” is Boomin out
That I’m For You.
I only have one life, One World,
And God Forbid that I should be Poetically Correct.

So, come Shine With Me like the beautiful star you are,
Because you’re Perfect and I feel
Fully Alive for the first time in a long time.
Set Apart This Dream, The Kind
That has you Swept Away In The Dark.

I’m Melting away this Monster,
And there’s a Hero underneath
That’s There For You.
I’m Awake And Alive today,
And I don’t want to be One Day Too Late.
I Believe that I’m Forgiven and I’ll
Never Surrender to the Chasm.

Arise my Beautiful Bride as we watch Fireflies,
During a Vanilla Twilight.
I know that this is No Ordinary Love
And it’ll last until the End Of The World.

No more Divisions.
No more Cutting The Ties.
No more Levelers,
Just this Phenomenon.
I’m There For You;
I’m For You.

This Ain’t No Ordinary Love Song
Because you’re my greatest Treasure,
And When You Come Back Down
I’ll Be Ready,
‘Cause I’m The Lucky One
And I Love You.

This Poem was created in 2009 just for fun.... I was seeing if I could make a poem completely out of songs, and then added some words to make it flow better. Enjoy!
