YOUR SCENT IS ALL I HAVE LEFT

my-pillow-is-missing-your-scent

I watched you love another as my heart broke into millions of pieces

I wanted to touch you yet I knew you were not mine

All I could think of was your fingertips in mine

Your kiss I desired so much to the point of insanity

Waiting as if watching a plant germinate and grow from the soil

I knew you could never be mine

Your heart belonged to someone elseā€¦her

All the feelings that kept coming to the surface

HE FOUND MY REPLACEMENT

We were a walk away from reaching the altar

He said he never loved like this before

How life lied on my faceless regret

Filling me with unnecessary hopes

Dreamless nights

Channeled by midday nightmares

How was laughter to rein my conscious

Dreading a morning without his

YOU ARE A BEAUTIFUL LIE

I stood looking at you
Wondering why my heart would not stop
Calling your voice from the distance

I cried for this love divine
I cried because of this love divine
I cried with this love divine
Pieces continue to fall apart
Every part of you is missing
Every part of you is wishing
Every part of you is leaving

SHE’S ALL WOMAN

She stands before you
Eyes filled with emotions unknown
Arms that want to reach out
Heart thumping in its chest
Fear dazzled in her bright pupils
Ear twitching from the beating heart
Long neck daring you loudly
Feet firmly set on the ground
Lips straining a smile
Hair massaging her scalp
Those curves unending
Skin shimmering in the night
Beckoning untold fairy tales
What do you see
She’s all woman

YOU’RE HARD WORK BUT YOU’RE GOOD FOR ME

weddinglove

I have loved so much before
Yet not in this magnitude
You make me work harder to find you
I want to run
Catch up
With emotions in my head
With those that dangle my heart
You see me as no one does
Long days
Even longer nights
Only make me yearn more
For the morsels i see in you
A heart broken
Never learns to love again
