Something Perfect

The darkness disappears and it lets some of it’s secrets escape.

The morning sun lights up the faces of a forbidden love

Coming down from a lustful high that still blinds common sense

Taking pleasure in the moment the only thing common then

Happiness in having company at once lonely moments

Smiles half hidden as the mind is flooded by thoughts 

The previous night flashing again and again

Like the pages of an old forgotten photo album.

You know the physical ones

The ones you actually had to flip through with your hands

As if slowly turning back the hands of time.

Words are very few, in fact anything is barely mentioned.

Is this love or a one night stand?

No one knows and no one cares

Bodies are tangled together with unsaid emotions.

All anyone wants to do is to just stay here.

Avoid reality for a while and drown in something perfect.

Moon And The Stars

It finally dawned that somethings were simply out of reach

The moon and the stars no matter how beautiful 

Were things for no one alone to keep 

It was an impossible feat

In all meaning of the word

Try as you might

Beat yourself up

Travel to the ends of the earth

All you’d have are tired legs and wasted dreams

Yet this is when he realized

He was indeed in love 

So if what he had to do was impossible 

He wouldn’t be the one to shy away without giving it a try.

Kiss Me

The silence was only interrupted by every breath they took.

The sunset on the horizon overwhelmed the occasion.

The soft melody of his heartbeat

Together with his arms around her

Gave this amazing sense of calm and safety.

“Do you really love me?” she finally asked.

“I really like you,” he said.

“You’re so amazing,” he said.

“Maybe one day I’ll love you,” he said.

He touched her cheek and ran his hand through her hair.

“Kiss me,” he said.

“I just want this moment to be forever,” he said.

But to her there was nothing he said.

For so long she had told herself this was love.

But it was just;

“I really like you” and “You’re so amazing,” as he had said.

Yet she smiled and told herself at least he was being honest.

So she turned her head and kissed him.

But only this time she had her eyes open.

If only in this moment she realized you deserve what you accept.

Calling Out

I’m calling out

I’m calling out

But I remain unheard

I remain ignored

Heartbeat echoes around me 

Deafening intensity of life and death

Never going silent

Never taking a break

I can’t hear myself breathe

I can’t hear myself think

I’m calling out

I’m calling out

But not for help

I’m doing alright

My internal screams

Are just really for me

I want you to stare and see

Yet be in disbelief 

I’m calling out

I’m calling out

But I’m going to stop

I no longer mind defeat

Your heart

The place you took me in

The place I got lost

I encountered locked doors 

But you wouldn’t give up the keys

I Left It ThereĀ 

I noticed the smile from much too far

Obviously artificial but still very much convincing.

Convincing of hope and happiness plus pleasant dreams in between.

I looked at it for a second and it was warming to my heart.

There was a heavenly quality to it

The way your lips curled at the edges

Taking my momentary fantasies and tangling with them.

I noticed the smile even though I had no intention of looking at you.

Not that you weren’t pleasant to look at.

I know you’re thinking that even if I found you unattractive

I wouldn’t mention it 

But as fate would have it you’re just beautifully made.

I noticed the smile and I left it there

I didn’t have the right words

I didn’t even have the right thoughts

So now every time it passes through my memory 

I just stop and stare.

Let Me Take You Home

If it was easy it could have been done by everyone.

Move you have to move, don’t believe your mind when it says stop.

One foot in front of the other

Painful step by step.

Even though I’m lost in my direction.

I’m coming to you because you give me hope.

Deadly depths only getting deeper underneath my feet.

I never learnt how to swim but I throw caution to the wind.

One foot in front of the other headed for a dream.

Waves rage and currents swerve from turbulent air.

I don’t let it distract me I’m still moving on.

Heart motivated and maybe a little insane

I guess it could be crazy to chase happiness 

Mon paradis et mon enfer

My heaven and my hell.

I could be blindly running towards my end. 

But you’ll never see me stop.

One foot in front of the other

I’m walking to find your heart and bring it home.

Paper Planes

I let the sun hit my face, the soft affection of nature’s warm embrace.

The cool morning breeze blows past slower than usual.

It sweeps by as if entranced by some soft tune.

Where does this music come from?

Or better yet where does it end?

What place does it call home?

The place where it goes to rest.

Sometime in the near future maybe today.

I wish I could be whisked off and taken there.

Turned into a paper plane.

Just the wind under me and I’m taking flight.

Jetting off into the sunset.

Freedom come take me there.

I’m not even worried if I’ll be real one day.

A paper plane in the air.

The earth’s problems couldn’t hold me back.
