Dangerously

Standard

Fresh mountain air.
Tainted desert sands.

Dreams.
Eyes that hide secrets.
A smile that ignites fire.

Words so constant.
Actions of the subtlest nature.
I-miss-you never aloud.

You waited.
I waited.

Lace against body.
Sweet chemical combustion.
Triggers perspiration.

Heart in shards.
Thousand glittering pieces.

Ghosts of my mind.
Haunting breaths.
Passion slow to diffuse.

Take me back.
Be my lover and my demon.
Don’t leave me like this.

Holding my breath.
Waiting.

Beautiful Stranger

Chat

I could write you
seven billion words of love
and hold you tight
when your demons came for you.

But they were all you knew.

In that moment,
I became the beautiful stranger in the distance.

I wish I had the strength
to break my heart again
while I watched you give into them
but I’m here waiting on this side.

Still holding onto you.

Resonance

Standard

There is a boy.
Wait he isn’t a boy anymore.
He’s a man.
Or is he?
Maybe he’s a boy stuck in the body of a man.
I love this man-boy.

But then there is life.
And sometimes she can be a real beach.
Like the hungry ocean waves.
Waves that are never satisfied
till they take everything away from you.
Not the material things, though.
No, she doesn’t want those.
She wants the fibers that keep you sane.

Remember that boy, that man-boy I love?
She took him away.
And he went willingly.
Why would he do that?
Maybe with the beach he belongs.
Just maybe that’s true.

There is a corner,
A corner that makes me invisible.
I call retreat where,
no one can see my
tear-stricken face,
bleeding heart,
and restless mind.
Falling, falling quickly into oblivion.

Remember that boy, that man-boy I love?
The one I
let myself fall for?
let down my walls for?
wished my future had a place for?
Just broken words and wasted time.

Time heals all wounds.
That is what he said.
But the scars remain like memories of today.
That is what she said.
There is life, an amazing life after us.
That is what he said.
You are wrong! There is life within us.
That is what she said.

There is a boy.
Wait he isn’t a boy anymore.
He’s a man.
Or is he?
Maybe he’s a boy stuck in the body of a man.
I love this man-boy.

But now he’s gone.
The beach took him away.
Those hungry waves.
But I’m not going anywhere.
I’m right here at the seashore.
Waiting.
Waiting for him to come back home.

Just Once

Standard

Stop and take a look into my heart, see yourself there.
Even after all those long, distant, quiet years.

An old story written in my history, refusing to be buried.
Another chapter; maybe another day, maybe never.

My heart has been waiting for you.
But you don’t know it, I didn’t either.

We didn’t even have one moment, our moment, for me.
You couldn’t see what was so plain and clear.

I could have made you a star, helped you touch the sky.
Better that you are now, bigger than your body.

Your picture leaves me breathless, yet I’m still staring.
And I’m scared about what your words can do to me.

Let me see that smile smile for me, that heart beat for me.
Please, I want that twinkle back in your eyes.

I don’t want your life, I just want a moment, just one.
For that I will wait for you, for our time.
