I see you!

If loving is gifting

I’m glad I got the best gift

It’s not for what you are or who are you

I know plenty of people with eyes closed

They don’t see you like I do

But darling, it’s what you are and who you are to me. … More I see you!

Is your love strong enough to bring me to life?

How can you see into my eyes like open doors?

Leading you down into my core

Waiting, paranoid about the depth of loneliness inside

Till you find me again and lead me back to you

Crying yet this emptiness won’t let it come through. … More Is your love strong enough to bring me to life?

Penguin

Someone once asked me, ‘why penguin?’

And I asked, ‘why not?’

‘But I really want to know’

So I said, ‘Google it’.

He comes back days later and says,

‘Now I understand the mystery that is you a little better’.

‘Tell me’, I said.

‘It’s a metaphor, that’s why you don’t usually perform the way people expect you to. You’re spontaneous and owing no explanations. And even though you want to believe that you’re conventional, there’s nothing conforming about you. And those sharp contrast colors of the penguin signify this unconventional nature. On one hand, you can be tough. On the other, you can be loving’.

‘Hmm’, I looked uninterested.

I didn’t research all of those to know I liked the unique love of the penguins. Their loyalty through a lifetime endeared me. I didn’t need his lecture too.

 ‘And if you haven’t loved, let me prove to you that I’m worth your loyalty’, he said.

‘But I’m already happily spoken for’.

‘Touché’. … More Penguin

Helplessly

You distract me
But I’m distracted without you.
I don’t know how to focus
Baby, teach me how to.
‘Cause I’m standing still again
But if you love me
Just like the way that I love you
I wouldn’t mind a little comforting from you.
Why do I let you in my head?
I gotta go sometimes,
But you’re always on my mind. … More Helplessly

Just the way I am

I was proud of my heart

Until I realized it was too weak for love

I’m no warrior for love,

Even though I wish I could be as explicit as the feeling inside

It still wouldn’t be enough

Because such is my fate.

You think I talk a lot of gibberish

But perhaps if you made us as uncomplicated

You would find beauty in my words here in my heart

I said there was no room for love here

Yet you were willing to make me promises

You first loved

But I’m the one who became needy

My head’s under water

I’m struggling to be alright

I want to think of you only half as much as you think of me

But I have not become a slave to my feeling for you

I am struggling to be alright

I do not want you to see me shatter

But in truth,

This is what I have become

But I would rather live a life of unrequited love

Than not know the feeling at all

I wouldn’t change a thing

 Because I love me

Just the way that I am … More Just the way I am

My Love’s Beloved

Come, let’s celebrate the sanctity of love

Here she comes, looking like a goddess

My love’s innocent beloved

She appears at my door like full moon

Come, let’s forget our differences and celebrate what binds us together

Your love has caused me pain

Like a dagger through my heart

But maybe that’s my destiny

To love a man who can never belong completely to either one of us

But we can at least hope together

While we celebrate the sanctity of the love we have. … More My Love’s Beloved

It’s time to say goodbye

Quitters don’t win and winners don’t quit, at least that’s what they say. So whenever I get discouraged, I look for that one excuse to hold on, hoping that perhaps there’s something there that will be worth my effort and steadfastness at the end of the day. A lot of pictorial messages say “it will end in praise” but does every story end in praise though? I suppose it depends on the perspective in which you look at it. Just because it hurts when it ends doesn’t mean it’s not for good eventually. Such is the situation when you’re convinced within yourself that it is time to move on in that draining relationship and say goodbye! … More It’s time to say goodbye

You & I

It still matters to me what you think of me and how you think of me

It’s as important to me as the time itself

The thing with you and I is that I cannot see

I can’t see what’s coming

And that keeps me coming back to you. … More You & I
