secret messages exchanged
has enticed me to dream
about being in your arms
under a summer night sky
across the room I catch your eyes
and your unspoken invitation
that no one else detects
I can no longer hold back
this growing swell of waves
so I let them crash over me

such lazy days
can be so rewarding
the summer breeze
in our hair
the sun kissing
our skin
your soft whispers
in my ear brings
me to a dream
that I wish never
to awake from
for being with you
is such a bliss

last day of summer

on the beach we sat
side by side
watching the sunset
hand in hand
we counted down
the time
we still had together                                                      
this night
for you would be gone
by tomorrow
I will still be here with
our promises
to never forget these days
and short nights

you were just a whisper
to the midnight sky and
I played my part well

I was just a simple rose
among many others you
eyed but never plucked

we were just a dream
that could only live
secured in our minds

to speak it out loud
would cause great
walls to tumble down

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

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
