You


You

Your proximity weakens me
But so does your absence
My lips are tender
Still marked by your kiss

Write love on my heart
Ink me with your skin
Embrace me softly
As the twilight embraces the sky
Because I’m an ashen heart
Incapable of handling a strong blow

Make me shiver
As your lips graze my neck
Sink your teeth in my skin
And expose the layers of anguish
For your touch
And tenderness

Desperate-
Yes, I’m desperate for you
For your eyes to land on me
To make me feel beautiful

So look at me
And revive my ashes
Resurrect some love into my broken heart
I promise, I’ll give some back…

A Thread


A Thread

I know I’m in love
When I start bleeding words for you

When you walk right past me
And you don’t even look
I swear I ache everywhere

When you look at someone else
Her-
The girl you love
But not me
I ache

I lend my thoughts to your whereabouts
And the whys

I fall fast and hard every time
I fall because I follow a thread
My small chance at love

Even though you’re hurting me
I won’t let you go
I fear the day I’ll have to forget you
I fear the emptiness that will follow
I’d rather ache
Than live with a heart that doesn’t give…

The Prophecy


The Prophecy

I
Love
Him

Three words

One of them might be a mistake-
A fault…
A moment the universe chose to slip
The aftermath was quick…

I fell

He stopped…
Stared
And swept
Me off my feet-

No, that’s not what happened

See, I like to imagine things and write them

The “happily ever afters”
The knights in shining armor
The never-ending love…

If the words are written, then the story is true… right?
Well…
I’m still waiting for the story to happen
Who knows… maybe my prophecy would come true one day.
