Just kept

Seems funny I really don’t recall

The sun feeling so warm and bright

Oh baby, I gave it my all, and more

Waiting patiently for what I needed

But you kept dismissing- all of me

I held on to every piece of myself

You took away from my wholeness

While telling me to just get over it

Though you were taking all I gave

Open and free from my bleeding heart

But I kept promising daily to myself

Eventually everything would change

And I was right, cause baby today  

 I’ve gotten over everything…missing

Hearted warrior  

I can carry this weight

Of darkness and it’s secrets

Do what I really must do

All by myself, always have

Believing what I feel inside

Belong to someone else- you

.

If I find you

If I find you

And you find me too

.

I’ll part oceans that divide us

Long enough to escape here

Then let it close itself behind

When I’m finally on your side

 I’ve overcome the taste of fear

And the pain of all these scars  

.

If I find you

If I find you

And you find me too

.

I’m feeling cold clear to my bones

I’m so tired behind these eyes

I pretend it doesn’t bother me

I’ve felt you call for too long

But I won’t surrender yet

Not until I’m in your arms

.

When I find you

When I find you  

When I find…you’re my home

Park Benches

It was an ordinary day in humanity

I resigned nothing changes for me

.

I was walking besides nonchalant

When out of the blue came along

Pausing me momentarily in my life

To my right- sat this lonely bench

.

For some unknown reason to me then

I sat down to enjoy an easy breeze

Suddenly you sat on the other end

Then smiled- and we began conversing

.

And I’ve been found in you ever since     

Meeting you daily at that empty bench   

Looking forward to our stimulation

Of my mind- in living this revelation

.

Never once did I ever question, why

You serenaded me in tiny conversations

Bringing me, my only true liberation

From white noise chaos- I was living   

.

You rescued me in tiny gentle breezes

Like an angel uplifting my whole soul

Sooner or later in time, change arrives  

You must know- what it meant to me

.

Belief, I could trust in your every word

Where I could feel in your voice’s truth

Know, if we’re ever lost from each other

Forever, my heart will remember… you

Misperceptions

It seems now, nothing I did

Could’ve proved my devotion

To love you- without conditions

And no matter how much I hurt

No matter how much I ignored

All the things you did, ugliness spoken

Even here, right now, I am fully broken

After you left, never looking back once

How could I’ve have been so wrong?

How could I’ve have been so foolish?     

How could I have become unworthy?

Of being loved as I have loved you

Trusting my whole heart’s safety  

To someone so dark and …empty

Poof!

Mismatched time and place

Our days and nights merged

Like candle flames on a wall

You seen my real reflections

On some of my broken pieces  

Finding me too unpalatable

To decorate your hearts life

You disappeared from mine

How so fashionable …of you

Daybreak has yet to arrive judiciously  

A heavy fog bogs down all sign of life

Tell me, just where do, I go from here

Wherever here- for me has now become?

I feel pieces of you lingering amongst

That help to stir up my subconscious

As your moist kisses had done for me  

Breathing sweet life in held memories

However colorful yet be translucent

That my heart can bare to depict you

Oh, even your Jasmine perfume rises    

As these cloudy blind eyes dare revisit

Caressing each other’s naked silhouettes     

My fingertips reminisce your silkiness

Living love outside the worlds …ugliness

Imperishable

I’m so tired of these cold memories

That still touches this heart of mine  

And can make me sadly wanna hide

From even my own self at most times

Or the questions of wondering why

Lovers of lies depict perfect illusions

Until it feels like I’m imploding inside                   

Only to be abandoned to their ashes

All I wanna do is simply live a truth

The warmth of real love uninhibited

In the safe harbor of someone’s heart

Trust them in the dark by their whispers   

Feel the beat of their passion, arise  

I wanna be, a memory that… never dies

I’m sure you’ll feel to understand

When I say, I’m still incomplete

It’s hard for a heart to recognize

Someone you’ve never held physically

But somehow, always felt- missing

If perchance, I could just find

That missed moment in a past time

Where our lives- meant to intersect

I’d surely go back without any questions  

I’d sit there forever and a day waiting  

To see, if like me- you too came back

Seeking to right a misperceived left     

Live the love of our unfulfilled passion

Erasing all doubts in joyous… cohabitation

.

Indistinguishable

One horrendous of caustic places

Can be propounded within- lulls

Of storms, fires and even at seas

Subtle centeredness as our new life             

When love just vacates one’s heart

Our lives can then become much like

Long sleepiness in the artic twilight

Never being fully light, nor full dark

And where we freeze concept of time

Loss of earlier intimate conversations

Missed awareness of our own selves

And numb to missed gentle touches

Melting of those once vibrant dreams

Falling victim in … passing moments
