beneath the surface

beneath the surface of dark ocean waters
my heart still beats for my one
who has yet to reveal his face to me
I have searched across the seas
scanned many faces, kissed too many
lips that only left bitterness behind
although my face says I have given up
deep within there is a part of me
that still clings to such desires

it was the scent
of that cologne
that permeated
from the car
next to mine
that brought back
memories of you
flooding my mind
tears overflowed
I took a deep breath
to regain some
of my composure
to enter the store
without red eyes

autumn's dream

I had a dream about you
and your soft kisses
under autumn’s light
I should have known
this would not last
for you were not here
when I opened my eyes
like a ghost you faded
into the mist of trees
before the snow came

with hope

with hope
I released you
into the wind
with prayers that
you would find
your way back
to my arms
every night
I sang to the moon
counting the years
that have passed
yet you have
not returned
maybe I should
just give up

wanted to believe

a part of me wanted to believe
in you and every word you said
you made my heart crack open
after being closed for years
created butterflies that long ago
had dissipated into dust
you made the mornings brighter
helped me smile through 
mundane daily tasks and 
I would have taken the risk 
if you wanted to take it too
you made me feel special –
that someone out there 
wanted ba connection as well
you created a spark within
with your kind words, if only 
I could have believe in them
but the lies you told were
too bright to ignore

the writing was written
clearly on the wall
and I felt the pull
of your heart away
from my grasp
but a part of me
didn’t want to face
reality until that
evening when you
said those words that
shattered my heart
into pieces

to sleep is to dream

to sleep is to dream
that you are here
lying in my arms
the sun always shining
to moon comforting us
and this moment
lives on for infinity
never ending or pausing
it is a dream that I don’t
want to awake from
for reality is much
more harsher than this
at least in my dreams
you never leave me
