Someone

We’re fragile…
We all are
One touch by the right person
And we either crumble
Or stand tall

We’re vulnerable…
Well, some of us are
One word can break us
It can send us crashing
Against a cement barrier
Or it can rebuild our broken pieces

We’re desperate…
Well, I know I am
For that someone
That beautiful being
That will make
Or break me…


The Way to Be Free

I walk through the ashes and blood, wondering

Is there a beating heart amongst this debris?
A breathing lung or a moving finger
Instead of lost souls, wandering, searching…

I look up at the sky drying the tears I’m shedding

Is this what you call justice, a decree
Of cruelty and bitterness
Towards children crawled up on the ground, hiding…

I listen to the sound of hatred, raging

Is this how it has to be?
These souls nothing but a number
To the coward fate-handlers, watching, laughing

I grab a sword from a hand that was fighting

Is this the way to be free?
Will you grant us justice before our slumber?
Before the cowards win and we die, defying…


You're Mine

The breath of a skin against mine
Stole any control I had left
Over the cells that demanded him

I never knew the shivers a touch releases
Against my layer of senses
Or the ache for more and never having enough

I wanted to bury myself against his chest
Wrap myself around him
As if he’ll disappear at any second

I lay there
My fingers tracing stars
Along the tiny hairs of his chest

I look at his being
The skin that ignites under my touch
The eyes in which I saw constellations
And the mouth that drowned me so many times

“You’re mine,” I whisper in his ear
He smiles and grabs my waist
To claim me again and again…
