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

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

can we not let this night end?

can we not let this night end
and bottle this memory forever
forget reality and just pretend
can we not let this night end
the last hours we can extend
it will be our finest endeavor
can we not let this night end
and bottle this memory forever

summer evening

a summer evening
our boat drifts under the moon
in peaceful silence

I try to hold on to
hope that I will find
you before it's too late
but every passing day
my light flickers like
a distant lighthouse
trying to stay steady
so you may find me
before the night when
my light goes out

heart of glass

a heart of glass
shattered into one
thousand pieces
a soft hand
with delicate fingers
piece it back
together like
a jigsaw puzzle
glue in hand
sealing those
jagged lines
make the heart
form into
one whole piece
so it may beat
once more

summer never lasts

summer never lasts
long enough
the days go by too past
the nights never wait
for us to collect stars
it flashes us her smile
and in an instant
she is gone

first kiss, second kiss

the first time
was a hurried thing
lips clashed against
one another like
waves upon rocks
but the second time
was much better
the electric touch of
your lips upon mine
made it all better

I believed every single word
you whispered into my ear
each smile you gifted me
under the morning sun
I believed every promise
that you would never leave
but time revealed true colors
when you removed your mask
and showed me your true face
