All the Right Things

He’s the kind of boy you always dream of sweeping you off your feet
He’s the kind of guy you take home to mommy and daddy
He isn’t like the other boys you’ve had
He isn’t the mistake you wake up regretting

He makes you stay up late
Not because you are his latest distraction
Not because he forces you to keep him company when the world is still
He leaves your nights together with a certain tenderness
That makes you ache for more

No day
No night
Is long enough
To contain the passion

You wake
Tasting him in the sunlight
Wishing for nothing more
Than a life lived with him

 

Trapped

Last night I dreamt of you
Holding my hand
And holding my heart
You’re the kind of guy
I’d wait forever for

In each other’s company
We did not wish to part
You could not let me go
As you lingered for an excuse

I held on as long as I could
I didn’t want you to go
As much as you didn’t want to leave

But in the morning I woke with a start
Jolting from this jaded reality
Still tasting your memory on my lips
Still feeling your arms wrapped tightly around me
Clinging to its remnants

Is such a love lasting?
Is such a love worthwhile?
Am I in love with novelty?
Or am I just lonely?

Do you wake in the night
Gazing into nothing
Thinking and dreaming
Of what we could be?

Unhinged

Too long have I lain
Locked in my ivory tower
Too long have I held back
The talents that made my name

I am a writer
By any other name
I would remain as sweet

My idols remain unknown
My craft, unappreciated
Only when I am need
Does my name rise to the occasion

I do not exist solely for your pleasure
I think
I feel
I love
As you do

So why do you treat me as lesser?
Does being a scientist make you better?

Consider a world without music
Without art
Without theatre
Would that be a life worth living?

I won’t let your judgementality hold me back any further
I will paint this world with my brush
I will watch you crumble under the weight of my words
With the same pleasure
You felt as you watched me suffer

Kiss of A Lifetime

To think of you when we shared our first kiss
Still makes my heart fill with a certain joy;
Sublime in every way. What bliss
Lies there beneath that flawless finish boy?
Would you share with me just one secret to
Your great success? Let me share this one life
This one eternal dream with you. You knew
My heart, my mind, and used me to create strife.
I blame you not. It was my choice to love
You and give you all that I was and am.
I was afraid, but you assured me of
A future of sweet nothings. But ugh! Damn
You for the feelings I have now. I trust
I will forever love you, but in lust

Love from Afar

The sun rises
And I know the end is near
All that I built
In the shadows of the night
Pierced and shattered
By the morning rays

But all is not lost
For the morning brings a new dawn
A new life
A new story to my dark and dismal days

With a new day comes the renewed chance that I will see you once more
You, perfect in every sense of the word
Have given me a reason
To go on
To be strong
To be myself

I want to be your reason for getting up each morning
I want to be the one who you think of before you fall asleep
But that will never be
Because you don’t know me

Dream Job

People say to do what you love
To follow your dreams
So you never work a day in your life

But I say don’t
Don’t turn what you love into a career
Don’t make what you love into a chore
Don’t make it so you dread each day
Walking into work
To do what you used to wake up itching to do

Ask yourself before you choose
Are you happy
With what you do?

Let the Right One in

In a world of liars and cheats
Be careful who you trust
In a world where information is bought and sold
Love is just a price to be paid

I should have known better than to believe you
I should have seen through your thinly veiled lies
It’s funny how honey coated words
Made my heart and head spin for you

Time does not make the heart grow fonder
Nor does it heal all wounds
It simply makes me forget I ever cared
And know that I never will again
