Bottled Love Letter

We fell in love,

Fell,

And fell in love again.

But what this love brings,

Can never be brought again.

This love,

It is a sleepless night,

It is an everlasting touch,

It is a thousand lifetimes,

It is a poem written on crumbled paper.

This love,

Brought us here,

I never knew her,

Yet we met a thousand times.

Each time,

This love,

Drew us closer,

A bottled message,

This love letter,

Release it in the wind,

Let it find us once again,

Remind us of our last lifetime,

We were always,

together,

Every night we felt alone,

together.

We thought the world was cruel,

together.

We never imagined finding each other,

together.

Searching endlessly in fields of tall grass,

Only fate knew our love.

Waiting for someone,

To rescue ill-fated hearts.

Here we stand,

With this love,

I see the future in your eyes.

A bottled love letter,

Release it in the wind,

Let it find us once again,

In every life,

In every dream,

In every kiss,

In every poem,

When the storm comes,

May each raindrop,

Tell our story,

 When the storm comes,

May the howling winds,

Cry out our names,

And if we fail,

Bottle this love letter,

Let it find us once again,

A thousand times,

In every life,

In every dream,

In every kiss,

In every poem,

Let us fall in love,

Fall,

And fall in love again,

A thousand times,

In every life,

In every dream,

In every kiss,

In every poem,

……..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Quintessence

Daylilies floating endlessly on a summer ocean,

the exotic music sung by colorful doves,

a gentle breeze through white linen,

contouring her body.

 

Soft kisses pressed on milky skin,

longing to see her beauty under my sheets,

her body’s morning warmth impelling against my love,

fluttering hearts.

 

Pondering under a love spell,

surrendering emotions once barricaded,

ardently whispering her name,

every breath avidly anticipates her reaction.

 

A romantically cursed wordsmith,

reliving unlived lives,

like daylilies floating endlessly on a summer ocean,

surrendering emotions once barricaded.

 

Perfectly flawed,

compatibly opposite,

discordantly delicate,

reliving unlived lives,

with her.

 

 

While You Sleep, I Dream

Falling stars

Accelerating passed empty reflections

Sweetening the sharp edges of a perpetual love

A quiescent trickle

Innervating an inquisitive osculation

Stimulating the nucleus of an obscure emotion

 

Your eyes

Conceding to a neoteric relationship

Musing over a fated bliss

Joyous, ever tranquil

We are falling stars

Accelerating passed empty reflections

 

Awaiting

While you sleep, I dream

Time is never by our side

Nevertheless

Accelerating passed empty reflections

Having faith we will land

 

Finally

Respiring

In each other’s embrace

Fending the darkness away

Musing over a fated bliss

Letting go nevermore

 

 

Finding Home

I eagerly sit by the phone

waiting for your call

knowing you think of me

at this moment

I touch the pillow

where your head lay

reminding myself

of your love

tears

The wine numbs my lips

as to deny my heart

the sound of your name

waiting for your call

how I love you

wishing I was your present and future

the man I could be

fighting off arrows of cupid

my eyes only see you

pain

every ounce of me hurts

When you part

it may be the last time

yet I look for you

fighting off the arrows of cupid

hurry

Desperately needing you

Waiting to feel your kiss again

But the wine numbs my lips

afraid you will let me go

hold me

bring me back to life

erase my mistakes

tame the beast within

searching through fields

filled with heartbroken silhouettes

following the sun

lost souls separated

together finding home

 

Autumn Winds

I am a dying leaf

Slowly finding its way

To the cold grass below

As I fall

I look up

I see you fading away

My strength

The branch that fed me

Held me through storms

On warm days

We laughed as the wind blew

When the rain fell

we held on

vowing to never let go

I can feel the cold grass

I can no longer see you

but I will lay here

wait for you

my love will carry on

as the autumn winds

take me away.

 

Breathe Again

I remember,

the stare you gave me,

it was beautiful,

I couldn’t believe it,

but my heart was,

so enraged,

hurt from my past,

I denied it.

I wanted to,

actually I was,

Drinking it all away,

acting a fool,

scaring my friends away.

I was tired of lies,

tired of hurting inside,

tired of lying to myself,

every time I turned around,

I was always wrong.

Do you know how it feels,

to feel like everything you do is wrong?

Do you know how it feels,

to feel like you suck at relationships,

constantly reminded that you are imperfect?

That’s how I felt,

before I met you.

I was so hating myself,

for being myself,

I wanted to kill myself,

slowly.

But then,

you came around,

with your eyes bright and brown,

smiling at me,

like I was worth something.

Massaging the weight off my shoulders,

now I am floating,

in the sky

looking down,

at the eruptions of life

As if all the negative energy,

inside me,

flowed like lava,

into the sea,

and cooled,

you guided me,

to a promised land,

that came to be.

This new land,

sprung new trees,

fresh acres of grass,

flowers and bushes,

we start over.

You breathed life,

into my dead body.

You gave me,

a new beginning.

You gave me,

exactly what I needed,

love!

The Night Before

Your voice consoles my anxiety

I can only fantasize of your smile

soothing your face as we kiss

the man you need

like the night before.

 

The fragrance of your body

still linger on my sheets

I want to dream in them

hear the whispers of memories

like the night before.

 

Returning home

captured by your embrace

experiencing new adventures

how beautiful it feels

like the other night.

 

I am your Apollo

When it rains on your earth

I become your sun and light

your musician to ease your mind

like the night before.

 

Our time will come

again

fate will find a way

again

I will relive the moments

again

until I find you

again

like the night before.

 

 

 

 

 

In Love Again

Escaping this world

Leaving all behind

Feeling

Young and free

Falling

In love again.

Taking us

above the clouds

We hid

Behind the sun

We danced

At the edge of noon

We walked

on the sea’s horizon

We kissed

Listening to the ocean’s music

Falling

In love again.

Descending

Losing hold

Perturbed eyes

Returning

To this world

The wind’s force

Upon my back

Trusting her

With my vulnerabilities

Closer

To this world

I close my eyes

She Clutches

A tender giant

Never wanting to let go

As we land

On this world

Separated

But

Scarred

By

Memories

Of

Falling

In love

Again!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You Are The Moonlight

While you sleep

I think of you

Wondering

What your dreams are made of,

If I could catch a glimpse

Of your thoughts

In the stars

Shiny dim lights

Pulsating like hearts,

Searching for the moment

You were in my arms

When the moon rises

Your hair dances

With night’s warm breeze

Touching my war scarred face

Finding peace in me,

Your lips

Searching for mine

I can feel them

Surrendering.

Beyond the soul

Distorted pictures

Years of pain

All that is left

Visions of you and I,

A reality

Fantasized

Carried by an ocean’s wave

From the storm

Rough seas

Gently crashing upon the shore

Filling footprints

That walk along the sands

Guided by your essence,

I will be lost

Without you,

The dark spaces

Hollowed emptiness

Shadows of a broken heart

No longer linger,

Permeated by a presence

I will follow,

Firmly holding on

To our memories,

You are the vanguard

Lead me.

You are the compass

Guide me.

You are the night’s brilliance

You are the moonlight.
