I wanted you

I always watched you from afar
like a star that I could not reach
how I wanted to be in your light
and be the one in your heart

I wanted you to look at me
like you looked at her, who was not me
how my heart ached every night
that you were unattainable

then the stars somehow aligned
and we crossed paths once more
this time I caught your eyes

now in your arms, made up dreams
becoming reality, so I close my eyes
to imprint this to memory

it was in a dream

it was in a dream
I found your warm eyes 
taking in mine making 
my heart burn inside
it was in those dreams
I fell in love with you
if only those memories
could have transferred
into real life I would
have been happy

window shades

to the world I am
just an ordinary girl
who works everyday
paying her bills and
follows all the rules
but when I get home
I pull down my
opaque window shades
I remove my mask
revealing my true face
I released pinned up hair
shed my suit of armor
as the clothes slide off
my hidden roses spring
out into full bloom
I become the person
I was meant to be
one who needs not
explain or apologize
to anyone for being me

real

I want something real
and true
with no filter
no photoshop
something I can hold
to feel its weight
smell its scent
something I can see
with my naked eyes
not behind glass screens

I want something real
and true
but it’s getting harder
to find such things
in a world that
is becoming more
virtual than actual
and slowly
I am losing hope
in such things

you once had

you once had the key to my heart
when I gave you my single rose
winter came and took you away
my heart turned to snow and ice

when you fear love

I want to touch
his inner soul
and look deep
into his ocean eyes
but a part of me
is afraid to allow
myself to make
that plunge
my heart won’t
let me dive into
those waves
like last time
when I almost
drowned

I have something to say

I have something to say
but I doubt anyone will hear it
it is hard to get my soft voice
to rise above the sound of
loud clashing and shouting
everyone trying to get in their
say as my tiny voice gets lost
among the tsunami waves
