i have a crush on you

you don’t really know me
and i don’t know you

i hope to meet you
one day
and to be able
to say something witty
and cute

and then to say something interesting
that sparks your interest
and opens up the space between us
for comfortable conversation

but it’s so much more difficult
when i already feel this emotion

and i don’t know you

never again

i’ll never see her again
i wouldn’t know if it if i did
my eyes are so cloudy now
and my soul is so lost

like a single rain-drop in the desert

only hoping to be
what she could have wanted
or what could have been worthy

life goes on

somehow we continue
with or without our love

stronger for the experience
more experienced for the love
and alive

what is love?

love is love
really
it can be so many different things

love can be
  • work
  • peace
  • anger
  • weakness
  • selfish
  • caring
  • less
  • flight
  • wealth
  • sharing
  • childhood
  • a mystery
  • longing

 
It’s just never the same. it keeps moving and flying and changing like some magical kaleidoscope of insanity, or a mystical calliope of comfort and depression. The tune plays for one and then for another. The magical creatures go round and round, and up and down.

And we all pay our token, or remain content to watch from the sidelines, because we don’t want to be the kid who ate too many deep fried twinkies and blew chunks all over the magical, mystical sidewalk of love.

leaves on trees

if each leaf
was a moment
and each breeze
was our love

our lives would rattle in the summer
and scatter in the autumn
then finally rest at peace in the icy winter
only to rebloom again when the warmth of spring returns

romantic quotes

  • i love the way you smell
  • you really know me
  • your eyes are incredibly beautiful
  • your soul entrances me
  • you are exactly what i have always wanted
  • you meet all my emotional needs
  • when you are in my arms, i forget about everything else
  • i can’t stop thinking about nibbling on your ears
  • i’ve been thinking about you all day
  • you remind me of flowers
  • your skin electrifies me
  • every day i feel like our souls are closer

i can’t cry

it’s a sad fact
that your love
tore out that part
of my soul
where the ability
to relieve
the pressure
by letting go
was replaced
with a kind of insanity
that makes me
run full speed
into a brick wall
to prove
to you
that our love
will always be real

where are you?

it’s been ages
but you’re still a part of my soul

like a flaw in a perfect diamond

it makes me shimmer

and life goes on

the water echoes and splashes
and the light refracts all around us
and somehow it’s just the magic of god
or some network of infinite laws
that surpass our ability to explain
with mere words

and we’re still just people

crazy crazy crazy people

our love remains

i’m an old man now
and there are so many shadows in the past

your eyes seem to change
at times
like a mask

but the truth is always there
whispering
“do you hear me?”

still i can’t see the past
only the connection of our souls
and the path forward

footprints

i’ve forgotten so many of our memories
they seem to wash out to sea
lost in the sand of living each day

but there are a few things that remain
like footprints in the sand

every moment

when you whisper in my ear
and i feel your neck against my nose
and your smell is a part of everything in my brain
when our skin is touching

when we don’t need to talk
and you want to hear me anyway

when your softness surrounds me

when the waterfalls all flow out to space
and the snow is everywhere in the streets

when the sparkles
leak out of our bodies
and we can’t remember our names
