Opposites and all

Some of us are a little broken
A crack in the bucket
The faith leaks out

Some of us, filled
before first words
Overflowing and eager

Guess we need each other
Opposites and all
Zelda and Zoe

Air and Fire

It is not important — the why
we are the way we are this instance

I, compressing at air 
you, taming fire

But our job is not to water down,
mold till we reflect each other

For you are born to be infinite
and I, to paint the city orange in colour

Poem written with your body

I trace along the curve of your neck
(Please never leave me)

Touch my lips to the your crown
(Please never leave me)

Breathe in the scent of your cheeks
(Please never leave me)

Draw circles in on your arms
(I love you, please never leave me)

Not for myself but you

And I see myself
Doing things I’d never
Believe
I could do

Not even for myself
I see me perform
Easily
For you

I’ll be there through the dark

When it is so dark
You cannot see
Reach beside you
And I’ll be there

Act of pain

Pain is a strange thing
Full of lies, it will be
Painting stories of tragedy
you will learn to believe

Into the role, perfectly
Pushing at you, screaming
Crying. A disgusting mess of
Madness and grief

Sorry I let the poison of pain
Swallow me; I forgot to see
Every time I clawed at you,
You’ve only responded with love

Disparity is only louder

I know I like to question
Mark our differences in red
Remarks: People are drawn to the similar

But underlying I think I know
We are more akin than not
Note-to-self: disparity is only louder

“i miss you”

I wrote a letter
added a tune
maybe the birds
could sing it to you

well,
there’s not much written
it was only three words
in the middle of the paper
“i miss you”

I wished for only one thing

What I want is simple:
I want you to be happy

You said you love me
You’d give me anything
(Yourself you claimed,
don’t mean nothing)

But darling don’t you see?
You gave relentlessly
Yet you don’t grant
The one thing I wished

You said you love me
You’d give me anything
I want you to be happy
Darling, don’t you see?

I want to be with you

With you,
not one moment is ordinary
no adventure too scary
no history I cannot defeat.

With you,
Suddenly life has meaning
time is short I start wishing
for forever, you and me.
