Rain,  wet droplets hit my face That time of year surely brings me faith           As the water weighs me down I pray         that maybe I'll be able to touch your base
Within the clouds I find nothing   But within your voice I see something   In the distance,  The dark is near But in my heart The stars are clear  
As my eyes rain this cold, wet sorrow... My heart yearns for a better tomorrow To feel lips brushed against mine Gently pressed, one of a kind. Yes, the cold is trapped in my sweater

I’d let my beauty melt away If only I could convey That no matter what I do I still need you.

The truth is, my darling, that time has passed and we have grown. And yes, I do love you. And yes, that has everything to do with this poem. Loving you has everything to do with who we’ve turned into, and who we’ve grown to become.
do you remember, when your lips softly brushed mine, and my heart was a bird escaping it's cage, and my soul had wings bursting from my back, because you smelt like cocoa butter and tasted like strawberries,
I love you with all that I am And sometime’s that’s scary But you say you love me too Even though I’m fucking crazy You are my all
It’s funny how much I’ve changed.  I’m 14 years old, sitting in my room, now surrounded by white. White sheets pinned to the walls, white carpet, white dresser. They were blue once, but that has been drained away.
you used to sing to me in our late nights of truths. love songs that made me uncomfortable, drifting me off to sleep.   a sleep that you watched until i woke up, got uncomfortable again.
Moirai spun me, with you, Sewn ourselves together to fate, We lusted for our destiny.   Melted hours folded together with ceaseless love.
As an elfin fairy dreamed, I wanted her, for her I looked. To touch her peony lips was my wish, Giving the forest another longing look, away I turned. Unrequited love is mine,
It happens a lot, this feeling that always seems as if to oscillate around my discernment: Of darkness, and gorging pits of doom, I've tried and tried to escape it vicariously through you,
With Her, Faces, names, places, All the world spins past, On a colorful carousel   Within grasp, But She is next to me I don't care for anyone else She's here They're not.  
I am strong- I mutter this chant incessantly through my head and I wonder now if I will ever be able to bear the burden of my own brokenness.
Sadness tears at the lungs Madness rises like bile Strung on a wire Am I to escape this fire?   Tortured Souls are not whole Hoarding feelings of frustration Eyes feel heavy with supplications
please listen to the silence of my heart so you, my love, may be spared from the grief
I was never graced with such sorrow Until Sorrow did grace me He landed on my door step And what other choice Than allow him to retrieve

I miss you... everyday I thought that time would... make this feeling go away It gets much worse when I try to sleep at night I am content to be alone But with you would be even better, right?  
Can't eat, can't sleep. My head is numb, and so are my feet. This is gonna hurt, yes this is going to hurt for a very long time. I can't remember, but I don't want to forget. Your smile, your laugh, everything about you so hard to get.

Why fails love to be content unto itself?   To have loved is to have loved.  
May you be loved in a way that is beyond palatable for you, that doesn’t make your head spin, but makes you comfortable, that makes you pleased with life

I was at the beach,And I thought of you
The autumn leaves fall from the trees, crisp and bright. The cold comes, disguised with stealth.   My heart grows louder as the days grow shorter, proclaiming its objective
Are you oblivious to this This is something you can't miss I have feelings in my heart, in the dark I can't let them go no  I just keep them inside and try to hide
The wait is like a fetter on my heart.
How can I stop? Mash the button screaming OFF A violently labled plea For a silent scream. It doesn't work; no current Thought with no life in it, Every spark feeds My desire instead.

As a phantom haunts his weakened prey

Saw you again today. Made me insecure because I didn't know which I wanted to do more;
Why? Why? Leave me alone. Emotions dropping from the surface,
Asking again "What do you think?" "What color does she prefer blue, purple, or pink?" "Am I too short, too weird, my thoughts abstract?" I don't even know why you ask me that.   
I never truly understood the stories Where the girl would spend weeks pining after some guy "Way out of her league" Who didn't even know her name After she saw him with another woman  
Tossing and turning,
I've thought about such a situation In my medical meditation. Like who should I be praising for salvation? I am but a martyr, Opening the ringing chino store,
Did you ever love me, like I loved your hands? On my throat as you choked me with your lips, on hers. Did you ever want me, like I wanted your attention? Out of the corner of your eye, when she spoke.
In my mind It only makes sense that if you fall into something You have to go through something So it surprises me that people always talk about falling in love But never talk about what they fell through

Unrequited,unreturned  the lessons I have learned took a risk, speak with the lips I never kissed, a lover of the light a whisper in the night, made my heart ignite

and I would go where you go and follow in your footsteps over mountains over hills through valleys and small towns over oceans over puddles I would follow you anywhere  
Unrequited Love, you see, that's my life story, There's times I wish I could go back to when you didn't exist to me. Nothing's worse than knowing the person you want to be with is a made up myth.  
The most dangerous urges are tempting me again  And if I shall cross the path, I will lose a friend If you go there once, there's a price to pay The battle within myself to stay at bay

Aching with no bruise, vena cava's clenching Heart gushing in resonant clicks. Stomach is a wolf Scratching at some meat. Reaching, but I fall Tumbling through the seas. Seas of endless,
Before the first second I saw you,I was incomplete.Deep, but nowhere near seeingTo the bottom of my heart;Immersed in emotion,But not to the pointOf drowning,Slowly and all at once,
If I were shorter, would you love me?Would you tuck me under your armOr notice me even less?

Confused With no one to talk to I'm so confused How will I vent to hold down the tears For no one seems to be here My mind is so dark and weird With no one to talk to I'm so confused
When you're talking about the things you feel, About how daring can be so unreal. As I listen with my breaking heart, Because I don't know where to start. Thinking it should be only you and me,
Villus burnished chassis still so lush. Pulchritude soars bound for my sulfur soul. Sets fire inside to the abandoned brush, Waiting to fry sitting on beds of coals.   Yet these beds are only simmering skin,
I hold words of eternal affection promising sweet nothings and three words carelessly thrown into the wind into weakening ink masking the intensity of the bond never made. An armistice found in 
My only regret is loving too much And succumbing to your poison touch. You make me weak with your scent. My mind’s a haze, my body’s spent. Your eyes, they cut me down to size,
Its a sad poem with no title. I did it today. I never wanted it to be like this Was it an accident? Was it life giving me a sign?
"111 Jane Street"
I've made the decision to throw away my true feelings for you. It may be difficult, but it is something I must do, Because you love me, But you are not in love with me, and that is something I can't handle.

There was a time I thought there’d be A little thing called you and me And now I try and you don’t care But I can still feel something there You haunt my mind every day You plague my dreams but you won’t stay
Such sweetness was in her eyes, But now her heart is made of ice. I’ve given her scores of chances, But at most they end up being glances. I would have given her my life, But her apathy cuts like a knife.
