It Wasn’t So Long Ago

We didn’t see the stars that night. There were so many clouds in the way, but we waited, facing the sky on a plain, hoping to see a small light appear behind the pillowy darkness.

Then, drops of rain rushed down on our faces the moment a star appeared and we gazed at each other, narrating repeated history through eyes exhausted from pain; it wasn’t so long ago.

We weren’t suppose to be here, someday, on this plain, hitherto, love’s renaissance.

No, we didn’t see the stars that night, we felt them, as the first time my rough hands touched your face, your strength became my weakness, our universe consonant.

Facing the sky on a plain, we weren’t suppose to be here, still, we gazed at each other through eyes exhausted from pain, narrating repeated history, hitherto.

My Divine Deja Vu

Where have I seen you before?
A familiar feeling reminiscent of a lost love
Hidden in the darkest of places
brightening the dimming lights of a shaded moon
Forever still in a framed abstract painting
Wishing the present was the past
Erasing memories of regret with joy
Binding time with parallel universes
Looking on to what we will become today
Watching our lives play out like a silent movie

Oh! What we would do to love young again!
In your eyes you have lived a life with me
A future filled with endless possibilities
Where the sun will only shine for you
The breeze will only warm your beautiful face
And the rain shall lotion your skin lavender soft
Let me be your earth
And surround you with all my love

Where have I seen you before?
Could it be you live in my dreams?
If so I shall close my eyes
And never awaken me
For I wish to stay with you there
Where we fantasize of running away
to a place
Where the sun never sets
Yet stars shine when you turn off the bedroom lights
Where waves forever crash
Yet the blue waters calmly rock you to sleep
And the sky forever blue
Only to dusk when you tire

Where have I seen you before?
Could it be we met in a past life?
If so may death come and take me back
Where I open my eyes in this old new world
and forget the obstacles that sit upon us now
I turn to see your angelic smile
The greatest of good mornings
Like an ancient Goddess
Announcing the arrival of the sun
Take me back
Open my eyes to this old new world
Where we are tragic lovers in a greek poem
Disobeying rules for each other’s warm embrace
Rebelling against the world for the taste of each other’s lips
The envy of the Gods
But favored by Aphrodite

Oh! What we would do to have today’s love yesterday
Let us keep forever tomorrow
Carry on our love in kindred souls
Where we will see each other again
A familiar feeling reminiscent of a lost love
My divine deja vu

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

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

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.
