Life’s riddle

Thoughts being to swirl deep within. Subconsciously my thoughts work endlessly, collecting stray fragments of information hoping to unlock part of a riddle. 


All the while I lay in bed half awake and half asleep. 

On the surface my train of thought seems non existent.

unable to focus or so I believe the truth is my mental capacity has reached its limit within me. 

My daily routine...

Self Control

When you find someone with the ability to make you question the reason to keep your composure. Do you pursue them or allow them to through your life never having to say good bye.

I lose myself in your company when your around me. 

With every kiss of your soft lips my conscious control weakens.

Your arms wrap around me and I slip into ecstasy momentarily.

I struggle to keep my composure...

Dead silence

Dead silence 



As I sit and stare into your eyes.

 I wonder if you realize.

I know they are all lies.

These words of love you profess to have for me. 

So easily spoke by you yet hold no truth.

To you the meaning is lost.

Love is mistaken for lust.

It burns hot and is short lived. 

Hollow with no real substance it leaves empty. 

How many others fall for this I...

I would like nothing more then to hold you in my arms so you know you’re loved. Pressed Close to my chest feel the rhythm of my heart beat to calm your nerves. Listen to my voice and feel a sense of ease come over you. What I feel for you is deeper then infatuation this feeling will remain unwavering. Let down your guard and allow me the opportunity to get closer to you.

Ever Lasting Love

Etched in my flesh are the words Ever Lasting Love. These words could be seen as a curse.
The thoughts of a hopeless romantic who’s nieve mindset let’s him down repeatedly.

Looking past the shell of emotionally damaged individuals he extends his heart to them so they may heal.
Giving of himself with the only hope that one day the person he saves will grace him with a love that knows no limit ...

Attention span


Your face is crystal clear to me. I have studied your face how the sun light reflects in your eyes. How you look serious when you’re nervous. I can see you even when I close my eyes. Your beauty was etched in my memory. However the feeling apparently one sided the time I spend thinking about you appreciated an not reciprocated. My interest begins to fade now knowing this. There was a time I c...

What if I let you close

What if I let down my guard. Could I trust you not to hurt me. If I was in a weakened state could I count on you to keep me safe would you defend me or hesitate. Do you really want to see more emotion from me. It’s a simple request one might think. Display how you feel express if you’re happy or sad. It would expose myself to being vulnerable. I can see how puzzling it can be at times wondering if...

At my door arrived someone broken inside. 

I could see in your eyes you felt scared and alone. 

I held you in my arms and asked what was wrong. I listened without judgement and told you it was okay. 

I told you I would help you without any expectation that I would be re-paid.

I offered without pause cause, I told you the last time we spoke I loved you then as I do now.
As time passed ...

Broken bonds

I lay awake in bed alone with my thoughts.  

I lost all trust for the one that I loved. 

Feeling betrayed negativity clouds my mind. 

A dream turned nightmare after learning of secrets being kept from me. 

How do I process my new reality. 

Being alone is easy for someone like me,if you know me it’s not hard to believe. Would it have been better to have kept my ignorance.  

I woul...

Toasted coconut

Once before we enjoyed one others company. I felt then that I loved you. I never changed how I thought of you. Even when you were out of my sight I hoped you were safe and cared for. You can reach out to me if you’re scared I promise I will do what I can to help you feel safe. If you’re sad or down I will try to cheer you up so I can see that smile once again on your beautiful face.  I won’t be sc...

Just a peek

The shell in which you see before your eyes can play tricks on your mind. Do you see the angel with the heart of pure love or do you see past that into the core a red hot devil looking to play with the fire of life. Mesmerized you will get to close an be consumed. Better to not let this demon catch your eye. Stare too long and he will notice you before you’re able to look away

With time to myself I feel as if the fog has lifted. Away from you out of sight and mind I can’t recall your face at all. 
I know how I felt while around you. I couldn’t help but smile you’re beautiful but not meant for me. 
I shared myself with you 
I thought you and I were similar. 
You told me what you wanted I so badly craved for it to be real. 
I feel the trust is broken now questions sw...

Before he met me I think maybe he might had believed his life was as good as it could be. We happened to meet by chance you see on a late winter morning. He was in the area so we decided to meet I thought he was cute while the attraction was mutual I think he would agree. His relationship complexity was an idea of which was very new to me. I thought this guy is a beautiful soul. By my pleasant sur...

 bright star that fell so far. no longer high in the sky. gone past the earth into the sea. no longer above your head now it rest below your feet. Out of your sight gone just out of reach. Will you remember the wish you made upon the fallen. Memories that succumb to time and erode away leaving you speechless as you struggle to gather the fragments in your mind. Memories are not meant to last till ...

Warnings given by those who care for my well being and peace of mind. I took words of love as simply jealousy that I had found someone who in my eyes gave that spark to reignite the fire of creativity. Here I sit thinking even still how you mean a great deal to me with me my heart exposed. Silly of me to allow my mind to wonder drawing off words spoken in a moment not meant to be thought of longer...

Stormy night

I close my eyes and listen to the rain. 

I focus on the sound it calms me everything else becomes faint as if nature has me in a trance. I begin to see an image from the shadows come forth. The face I see is of you, your almond eyes and beautiful smile a handsome man that I adore. I start the think about the time we shared selfish thoughts fill my head. I can only think about holding you in my ...

Thoughts of a dream

If you didn’t understand  my intentions before allow me to express my feelings in written form. Your beauty is without question. You’re intelligence shows you have wisdom beyond your years. You have compassion in your heart for those around you cause the beauty you possess begins at your core. I see a soul that craves for something so basic. I won’t deny that the physicality of our current interac...

Edge of sanity

The sounds come and go from far away a voice rose it grew louder or closer I am unaware i just knew it was there around me unknown weather above or below in front of me or behind left then my right the voice was unclear just mumbling on and on in my ear. I scratched ear and shook my head nothing worked so I thought to myself might this all be in my head. How can I think I heard a voice another yet...

Would you let me take control

Hear my words listen to me closely I will take things slow. 

This will go quite easy as long as you give up control.

 I believe you want this deep down you can't wait to please, I would rather it be me another might not be as gentle you see. 

When it's my voice you hear do as I say. 

I will take care as orders I give increase our pleasure with little to no pain.

 I offer you that wh...

My eye sight will fade with time this I feel is true. 

I pray my memory can hold till the end of my days. 

When my body weakens to the point at which no more time is left for me

When all I can see is pitch black darkness.

 I hope to think back to my memories I have of you. 

Might I be able to see you as if you were standing before me. 

Allowing me to view the image of  your beaut...

The purpose of life is to live. Primal emotions are like drugs. They alter our minds the way we feel how we think. While we are on a love high we become blinded by the dealer. We want more we don’t care about the price. We don’t think is this real we only care about satisfying the hunger we have for more. When we start to sip on Hate we begin to feel warm as if that flame within us is being fed on...

I lay here alone at night not cause you asked it of me. 

Alone I stay Out of my desire for you.  

I choose not to stray however misguided I my be. 

I laugh at myself cause you don’t feel that way for me.

You’re wrapped up in feelings for another. 

Why do I test myself so hard. 

The only answer I can think of would be is to prove to myself I am worthy.

Knowing I can pass any te...

Song of the soul

The song sung by the soul is heard by the heart. 

The body responds to what is felt in the only way it knows.

The melodies our souls sings is constantly sung throughout our lives. 

Only the hearts that are attuned to the sound of your soul will ever hear its song. 

The heart will unlock itself there is nothing we can do.

You can't deny your heart the very thing it craves.

I have ...

Anxiety of feelings

(We all think this when we meet someone)

Can you love me?

 Can you give me what I desire most? 


(Honesty who doesn’t feel this way)


When I am around you I can’t help but smile. 

I look at you an I am filled with feelings. 

I feel joy,happiness,nervousness. 

When I think about how I feel 

I’m completely comfortable around you. 

it’s Love I feel.

Fate has crossed our paths.  

Its for a reason or simply just a season. Come to me let me help you heal .

I will listen to your story closely don't be afraid I will not judge you. 

I will help mend your spirit from the scare of the past all you need to do is vocalize your emotions. 

Allow my words the chance to warm a heart that has grown cold. 

From others who have failed you.

One last night

Anyway in the waking world we waste our time away.

Soon days pass and we are still in the same place as yesterday.

 Never aware till its to late and all we have left is our last day. 

Then we think of all the things we wish we did when we had time.

However time has past in this the waking state.
