Unforever us

I don’t fear love
but the loneliness
that may follow
if this love doesn’t last
forever, as promised
if I don’t do the deeds
deemed “right”.
 
I’m learning to love you
but you expected me
to know how to.

Ace of spades

Morse code
beat palpitates
warm wrist
feel demonstrates
mind, hearts
accommodates
I’m dealt
the ace of spades.

Yummy

 
Meditating behind musky pages
submerged in the murky depths
of Marketing 101, flick
my finger upon tongue
to fli yet another
when a tap roused me to turn
and face a caramel macchiato smile
behind the tiramisu cheesecake.
 
Yum.

The Deep End

The curse thumps from within my chest
wretched poison spread
its perimeter to meet her.
 
My emerald-eyed ravens circle this martyr
lusting for the supple youth
her heart still bleeds.
 
She leaves her coast to wade
past posts that probe
the integrity of her passion for me.
 
With stifled breaths, I stand in angst
she doesn’t know it yet
no one’s survived where she wades.

AGE QUAKE: A SONNET

Hidden behind the Botox and face mask;
A modern taboo, sensitive to ask.
It involves more than figures and numbers;
A trip ride you forget and remember.
 
Changes and transformation all the way;
Pray to stay at best, nature cannot sway.
More fear than death, aging is a stigma;
Terror on mirror, trauma is drama.
 
Age is as old as you are, felt or think;
Peeling vanity, live to shine or sink.
The body does not aged and fall the same;
Face is young, energy decline, knee lame.
 
Wig, dentures, hearing aids, and walking frame;
Aging well is living, no shame in game.

Another try

I said " I want to give us a try. "
I hesitated for 4 days
With only honesty in my heart
I thought I could have a better love
But, what is a better love?
A hunky guy? A guy with the sweetest melody? A guy so bad I could fall head over heels?
I don't know how to answer my own question 
There was a moment where I thought 
It doesn't matter if the both of us couldn't find our beautiful ending together
It doesn't matter if we parted ways with a heart that broke terribly 
As long as I get the chance to love you
A chance to be loved by you
A mere second of happiness
I could trade everything and anything for it
For that one of a lifetime love
