The Breakup

I want to but I don’t know how

Getting over you was not the deal

For you I’d walk a hundred miles

No one else could make me feel

Love and leave is just not my style

Please believe that this is real

One look could make me smile

One touch can seal the deal

Don’t want to stop,  no, not now

For you I’d give my last meal

Never was good at throwing in the towel

Is it over, this can’t be real

I must be daydreaming I must somehow

Getting over you was not the deal

For you I could wait a while

No one else could make me feel

I want to but I don’t know how

I don’t know how

I am Love

I am the blanket that keeps you warm at night

 I am the soft kisses trickling down your spine

I am the very breath that gives you life

 I am the sweet honey that makes the stars shine

Without me your life would cease to exist

I am the twinkle glistening in your eyes

I am the chocolate thighs wrapped around your waste

I am the high that’s got you touching the skies

I am the sweetness that’s got you begging for a taste

Without me your life would cease to exist

Who am I?

Some call me the temptress of things most desired

Devil’s concubine may even come to mind

Some even blame me for getting them fired

I just want to help you unwind

But you can call me….

Love

The End

Like the flame to a candle our love became too much for him to handle

He was the wick and I was the flame burning deep into the soul of a man who wasn’t able

To commit to a life of monogamy let alone be the provider of something stable

See, for him life was a bowl of cherries just waiting to be popped

For him growing up was similar to pushing up daisies in an old cemetery plot

Trust was a fairytale and how to be a friend was something he had forgot

With every passing year the flame grew hotter and hotter while the wick withered away

Some say love is all you need but I say love is what made him run astray

And run he did. He ran and ran and is still running today

“Run Forest run”, is what I say because I’m not the one to try to keep anyone who doesn’t want to be kept

Just remember I was the first and there will never be another capable of giving you what you left

Poetry – Loves Journey

I used to think you were the one for me

I used to think together we would live so happily

You’ve proved me wrong more times than one

Still I couldn’t let go, we had hardly even begun

They all said we were perfect for each other

They all said we would be the ones to outlast all the others

They said

 

I used to think that love could conquer all

I used to think you would be the one to catch me if I fall

You’ve proved to be my best mistake yet

Still I couldn’t let go, I had to see how much further we could get

They all said he never got over you

They all said he wants to be the best for you

They said

 

I used to think I was your yin to your yang

I used to think I needed you to be able to do my thing

You’ve proved to me that your yang matches up with more than one yin

Still I couldn’t let go, not now and definitely not then

They all said maybe it’s time you thought about moving on

They all said how much longer can this go on

They said

 

I used to think I needed you to complete me

I used to think without you I could never be happy

I’ve proved I don’t need you any more than you need me

Still I couldn’t let go till I found the batteries

I said I don’t need you anyway

I said one day you’re going to pay

I said
