Let my love prevail

They ask about love,

I tell them about hurt, 

I associate our memories,

with tragedies occurred,

they ask why I left,

I tell them the truth,

that you didn’t ask me to stay, 

I had to pick a different route,

in my heart there’s injury,

damage to my pride,

please tell me how I can stop,

feeling this feeling inside,

I’m burnt out from surviving,

chasing my own tail,

I want you to want me back,

and let my love prevail.

The future isn’t what we thought it would be

I live a full life, yet I feel like I’m half a person, in my mind a war rages on, but in war there are no winners, just a heavier burden, we’ve achieved a great injustice to our nature, with no chance of a second saviour, communities are sad but smiling, whilst trying to live but knowing they’re dying, no room left to be a dreamer, pushing on in the struggle, the strife follows them around, soulless adventures to make pennies to pay bills, just to keep their feet on solid ground, I feel like I’m drowning, trying to save my generation, because words play less of a role now that technology is our new decoration, we wear it like smiles, paint our faces with instant messages, communicate only in dressing styles, and abbreviated sentences, give me some hope for a future, one worth beckoning for, infect me like a tumour, with ideas to open that door

The taste of summer

you taste like summer, so dress me with your seasons, you spill blossom when you converse, against my heart I commit treason, I’ve got an addiction, and you are my drug, you keep me coming back, withdrawing would open me up, my veins pump for your mind, my eyes see for your beauty, my fingers can only touch, your skin that runs so smoothly, so let me wallow in your voice, lose consciousness in your ideas, tell me your regrets, let me soften their loud noise, let me whisper in your ear, ever oh so gently, let me crawl into your heart, oh how I love you so immensely

it’s been a long time since you extinguished the flames, then doused me in gasoline to set me back ablaze, you handed me the razor, the blade to cut away my outer shell, peeling layers of my dreams, senses and visions away, my heart started racing faster, pumping blood until my head started spinning, my lifeline was being erased, from a love that I had simply misplaced, you stripped me of the skin that used to caress me on the nights you left me, as if it could be replaced, the pain wasn’t important to you, you revelled in my misery, a public spectacle of emotion, on show for the world, almost like a special delivery, but now the emotions, I lack, the feelings I no longer feel, for the comfort of depression that I now reside in, is a true reminder of love, and with that, I know I’ll never feel it again

Let’s pretend

let’s pretend I’m your canvas, paint me with your harsh words, pretend I’m a public library, and read me like a book,

pretend you are afraid of me, live me out, and overcome your fear,

pick me like a flower, a thorn in the rose bush, butter me up like morning toast, let me satisfy your insides, sense me, touch me,

 journey with me in space and time, let’s touch the galaxy, let’s travel through different era’s, talk about the subjects we find meaningful, scary, deep, the darkest fears of our minds, 

every inch of the world has been photographed, except the stars within your eyes, put them aside for me, I’ll keep them safe, and never let them die

She was aesthetically pleasing, with a face that spoke a different language, the pores on her skin, were similar to maps I’d never travelled, and worlds I’d never seen, she had solar systems in her eyes, and stars engraved into her soul, she held a love so pure, so authentic, so irreplaceable.

If  you were lucky enough to hold her, you wouldn’t be able to let go, you’d fall in love with the warmth, the passion of her mind, the spirit in her confidence, and the hospitality that came with the flash of her smile, her eyes would tell you stories, of places she’d never been, of things you couldn’t imagine, worlds that hadn’t been discovered,

 She’d make them a reality from within her dreams

Runaway, love

It was a runaway love, a mixture of longitudes and latitudes, with no compass to direct me, time was spent trawling through old photos, that left glittery dust on my boots, looking for clues and a reason, but none I could find, pushing against gravity, whilst being held in decline, inclined to give up, but too full to swallow my pride, lying fallow, too numb to stand up, too tired to sit down, I was the opposite of living, but even death wasn’t around, stagnated without you, deteriorating with every breath, I begged you to save me, you looked at me, drew a quick breath, debated for a second, turned around, walked away, and left
