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 Love Before


The Love Before

Once they were many
Now they are few
After some of them left
All they left is two-

Two souls an inch apart
Circling the drain
With shredding hearts
Trying to find salvation
Trying to save the love
A rarity they once had

Had they known it would be that hard
For a soul to lose a part
And the heart to live in the dark
They would’ve gone back to the start
Before the love and the names on the tree bark
Before the hate and the glass shards

He looks at her, in regret
She looks at him, in pain
He tries to accept
What she couldn’t explain

They want it back
The love before the words
The love that started with eyes
The love that started with notes…

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.

My Utopia


OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I live in my Utopia
Everyday
I walk under an arch
Something you built years ago

I catch a hint of your scent
Every time I move
I guess that’s why I come here
Even after you’re gone

You’re a winged angel
One day,
You’ll descend to the earth
You’ll wrap me with your feathers
And we’ll both take off into the unknown
Away from this unknown you left me in…
