Unanswered Heart

What is it
when your heart aches
just so
with love
and something you
don't know

What is this love?
I need to get off
my chest
is this love?
is it real?
or just a test

My heart ached
so much
but I broke
and told you all
I laid my soul
bare when I spoke

My heart feels
better now though
still unanswered
I hope you can
help me heal,
find our answers

A Soul Unfurled

I once wanted everything
I touch to become
beautiful as I see it

I wanted the world to see
as only I can see
to feel as I do

Whether with paint and brush
or a kiss
to make you blush

Sewing with needle and thread
or by opening your eyes
and whispering away the dread

I wanted everyone to heal
touched by words I writ
or beauty captured on' reel

I wish you could've known
there's more to life
than your world has shown

Of all the beauty that I desired
I wanted to heal your heart, beautiful,
but you were weary, too tired

Now that I'm free, I'll show the world
what beauty I can create
With my heart open, my soul unfurled

Dream a little more
Where are your dreams,
Surreal and vibrant as before?

Harsh reality
poured forth in a bleak sigh
last night, your world so dark,
dreams faded from your eye...

Dear dreamer
Where are the eyes that once saw vérité
Where are they, your lens through which 
truth had beauty? whence you lacked fierté?

It seemed the lens has shattered
your heart beats slowly to disillusionment
The wine you drank, the food you feasted
turned sour to your tongue, your eyes light dimmed.....

Dear dreamer....
come back to me soon
I miss dreaming with you
when you still saw a face in the moon...

The Way You Loved Me

My Love,
There is something about you
      Something I've always known
           now seems new...

The way you hold me
      for no reason at all
The way you kiss me
      just for smiling
           or saying hello

The way you kiss my fingertips
just because they're in your grasp
       just because you can

All these things,
      so new, serene,
          so delicate,

I love the way we gaze
     into the fridge,
with the same elegance and romance
        as though it were a window
to the streets of Italy, Spain, or France

You've always pushed my hair aside,
        just so,
but my dear, now it fits so perfectly
       as snugly as your hand fits in mine

Our intimate, close dancing-
       all the pieces begin to fit.
That comfort we've always had
       now even stronger than before

My dear, I would ask:
     how did we not know it before?
But I tell you, we've always known
      though the time was never yet ready
           it was always something more...

The way you captured me,
      the photos you would take
Always had so much charm,
           magic like none other

Now I see why -
It was always the way I looked at you
      the way you saw me
The princess you saw before you
      It was all in the way you loved me

Confusion is the Illusion

Dear Sir,

You claim you are
caught in confusion
And I see that you
are clouded in delusion
So sir, let me break off
this ridiculous illusion

You broke my heart
and took all I had
You were the cause
of my broken heart
You took my heart,
my love, my friends

You left me
with nothing
but you continued to take
to steal,
and constantly,
my heart would break

You took all I loved
and kept what
I could no longer have
You belittled and

And now,
after you've gained it all
and I have lost
You have nothing,
while I've rebuilt myself

and now... you want my heart.

So with this, sir
I do part.
I take with me
my newly mended heart
Taking what dignity
I have regained
I leave you
never to be seen again

Spilled Milk...

Why do you try
over and over
Let me tell you
once and for all

The pieces don't fit
no they won't fit
We weren't the two.
I wasn't made for you

The one I need
will shelter me
The one I want
will know my heart

The one I'll have
will care for me
He'll see in my eyes
what you never tried

My dear and my love
he will know me, all of me

He'll let me cry in his arms
and know when I need to 

He'll know how to light my eyes
and what would make me smile
the things i long for, the surprise
He'll be there in the midst of trial

He will hold me
just the way I need
Touch me the way
that I long for

He'll never tell me
not to cry over spilt milk
When we know so well
you spilled much more than milk...

There are times when you have

a Thought.
so profound...

that it cannot be shared with just anyone. or everyone.
only a select few...

for only few will understand
and appreciate it

live to love

I don't know
that you'll ever learn
or if you can understand
since your soul is not like mine
and your heart has run dry...

I live to love.
Without love,
I cannot live
No, I can scarce stand to live
if I am ever without love

Some people need love,
as I do.
Others traipse through
always out of love
yet, see them!
-claiming to live..!
