Who I Think He Is (Poem #43)

(From the eyes of someone who has been watching him shine)

He is a raging storm
with a name that has made hearts skip its usual beat

his name, on some girl’s lips
sometimes sounded like the yearning to be his
or the sound of “that should have been me”

to some, it sounded like poison
but as for me,
it has always sounded like home

Tell Me All of You (Poem #42)

I want to know the silly things you did when you were eight
or the stories you’ll never forget when you were sent to bed

tell me about your parents
tell me fragments of yourself
I truly wanna know

I want to know what makes your eyes light up
your brows meet
your fist clench
or your knees week Continue reading Tell Me All of You (Poem #42)

The ‘What If’ She Feared (Poem #37)

“What if he turns out to be a jerk after a few months?”
that was the question she asks herself the most
she has seen how gentle he acts now
a few months passed and he stayed the same
she got a grip of herself and said
“maybe a few months more”

Against You (Poem #34)

It has always been you and me
against all odds
you’d hold my hand
or gently wrap your arms
and that would have me thinking
how close I am to a fairytale
but just like tales with ups and downs
there came a point that I loathed
having you around

Your gentle hands around my neck
became ropes claiming possession
which I longed to escape

Just like a puzzle piece out of place
or a cup of coffee on a summer’s heat
there’s something about us
I bet is most likely a mistake
between us, something is just off Continue reading Against You (Poem #34)

I Wish You Would (Poem #33)

She asked you to paint the town red
you took off in less than a minute
and did exactly what she said

When once she fell silent
because of something that you’ve done
you tried to cure her in an insant
you got on your knees
with just a snap of her hand

That was 6 months ago
and you are mine now
but still I wonder
how could such thoughts haunt me
even when I am wrapped by your arms Continue reading I Wish You Would (Poem #33)

His Fairytale (Poem #32)

You fed your girl the poisonous fruit
through I love yous, and I do toos

You handed the poisonous apple yourself
when you placed her on the shelf
so you could chase other girls

You alone should be blamed
when the poison kicked in
when it numbed her heart
and erased all the traces
of where love has been Continue reading His Fairytale (Poem #32)

Sorry for Needing You (Poem #31)

“It hurts to be needed.”
It was all you could mumble
after I said:

“I need you, to make myself wanted
so I can have someone to turn to
when he tells me it’s time for me to go

I need you, so I can feel pretty
so I can feel like I am enough
after he talks nonstop
about the girl who came before me Continue reading Sorry for Needing You (Poem #31)
