4 am

It’s  4 am As it was, almost a week ago. I’m thinking it must mean something, The fact that I can’t sleep now And  I’m writing you this Because it’s never too early.   I love you at 4 am Not now, but I did a week ago When we had just got back. I…

Oak

I never claimed to posses you; Love does not seek to do so, Yet you had planted your heart In the shadow of my oak, And while my roots were nourished By the soul of the earth, I felt yours starve. We drank from the same cup, Neither of us ever fully satisfied; Our togetherness…

Turning tables

Dark haired girl, you Rub ashened elbows with the window sill, Cursing your neck for not being long enough. You can barely see inside But you already know how this scene goes, This is how it looks like from the outside.   You know you will  still wear your pretty smile, Even though it’s too…

Complicated

My heart stops  as you reach out And take my face in your hands. No words bear more meaning Than those that curl out of your mouth.   Hurt wraps its fingers around longing As they both fight to be felt. Neither of us is surprised by how it plays out: Me too, I say  as…

Seasons

I still remember how it began, you creeping up on me Like the changing of seasons, I barely noticed the falling leaves. But I will always swear I saw you coming, Just  to have something to go back and forth about Because I like our idle banter, and  the look in your eyes When you…

Promises

Isn’t it funny, how we all Wear our hearts on our sleeves? We keep them hidden Like the magician does his cards. We look each other in the eyes As we promise not to let ourselves fall. Slowly, you and I make our way Towards the cliff’s edge. When we finally come to our senses…

Beads

Of all the advetures I’ve lived You and I will ever remain unfinished. If our life lines chance to cross again I will crawl over to you once more and Lie down in the crinkles of your eyes where Only your tears can carry me away. Remember our dark places, stuffed With mumbled words I…

Letting you in

How do I clothe my half naked attraction? Though it has been quite a while, We all know how these things go: The secret glances you think went unnoticed, Heart stopping everytime you hear that name… Then how every touch sears into your skin And your arm hairs ripple in…protest? Response? Maybe I could start acting a…

Mirror

I place the mirror by the wall And sit close to the stranger’s body Whose eyes look into mine with no recognition. I resist the urge to look away, This time I won’t leave till I know her. I trace every inch of dark skin, Shut my eyes and hold my breath Listening to whispered…

When It Hurts

I can’t believe how much this hurts Yet we just can’t seem to feel it See, all we ever worry about Is whether I’m okay, or you’re okay- Are you okay?   I could weep for days if only I could gather up all of The broken pieces in my hands And hold them up…

Elemental Poetry

Have I ever told you, I think Our souls were woven from the same thread Maybe that’s why during the fray We held on for dear life Till the elements tore us apart The tailor’s snippetty snip shears. Have I ever told you, I think That love is everything and nothing A doubled edged sword…

Open Bar

Let us have excuses all around, on me For my cup is brimmed with love Pouring over to fill yours, his and theirs Hell, I’ll put a sign up front ‘open bar’ No, I won’t be hiring soon, no help wanted This is a one girl show. Nobody’s paying tonight, please, I insist Not tips…
