Too Much For One Heart

image

 

Outside there is a war,
In here the night is still.
The jasmine buds have bloomed,
The way the jasmine will.

And i have given birth to a speckle of dust,
To a sparkle of light
To a small hint of life.

Frail as a flower in the morning
Is this tiny work of art
When i see his face before me
This is too much for one heart

Here like a seedling in the garden
Is a world about to start
How i need you here to share it
This is too much for one heart

Yours, half of all of this is yours
And i swear it on the moon

Soon you will see, the best of you and me
In the smile that is shining
On the face of your son
All alone in my arms I hold such beauty

I want time to stop right here
Make perfection last forever
In which i could disappear, disappear.

Yours, half of all of this is yours
And now i feel you coming near
Here, you will see the best of you and me
For life stories combining
In this life we’ve begun

I have been living with such wonder
That my soul could burst apart,
Knowing soon well be together
And its too much for one heart.

Moments like this when sleep is million miles away, while my spirit seems to be in pain, struggling in the silence of the evening.

Phenomenal Woman – That’s Me

Processed with VSCO with lv02 preset

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

With One More Look At You

1
Baguio City, Philippines

With one more look at you
I could learn to tame the clouds
And let the sun shine through
Leave a troubled past and I might start anew
I’ll solve the mysteries if you’re the prize
Refresh these tired eyes
With one more look at you
I might overcome the anger
That I learned to know
Find a piece of mind I lost so long ago
Your gentle touch has made me strong again
And I belong again
For when you look at me
I’m everything and more that I had dreamed I’d be
My spirit feels a promise
I won’t be alone

With one more look at you
I’d learn to change the stars
And change our fortunes too
I’d have the constellations paint your portrait too
So all the world might share this wonderous sight
The world could end each night
With one more look at you
With one more look at you
I want one more look at you

My dear Sunrise.

Now This Is Why I Love Poetry

(Now this is poetry on a different level.)

Hello, how are you
It’s so typical of me to talk about myself
I’m sorry
Roll one up and let’s get high
I am trying to get fried
I bought some weed, and you can smoke
You trying to get high
I’m trying to toke
Hit this weed once, dont’ you choke-oke-oke-oke
I got a grinder, I got a bowl
I got some weed so let’s make a song
I got some munchies
We all get along
I smoke weed ain’t nothin wrong
My money good and my money long
My b*tch bad and my kush strong
I be right, I don’t be wrong
I smoke weed all day long
Wake up to it, do to sleep with that PACK

 

Anything You Need

In what other lives have I known your kiss
And what forgotten moments have I felt like this
The way you touch me I come undone
You know me more than anyone
Whatever you want

In what other lives have I touched your face
And what words did we whisper in a strange forbidden place
To be with you baby is to be myself
We’re two of a kind, you and I
I couldn’t like anyone else

You are my beginning, my end
You are my enemy, my friend
In this life, in this time

Whatever you want, whatever you need
I will be right here my friend
Whatever you want, whatever you need
I will be right here my friend,

In what other lives did I feel your skin
And when exactly did I breathe you in
Feel like I’ve known you for a thousand years
You’re so familiar to me and there is no fear

Watch the sun go down
I watch as time moves on,
And when I’m with you there’s no right, no wrong

Whatever you want

 

Random Thoughts 14

7_aTell me about yourself
Tell me what make your eyes light up
What makes that beautiful smile grace your face
Tell me things you love doing as a child
and the things that seem to make time faster
Your dreams, goals, ambitions
they will never seem silly to me.

Tell me what keeps you awake at 3 in the morning
when everything is still and peaceful
except for that heart of yours
Tell me about the experiences that changed you
for better or for worse
Tell me about your fears and inhibitions
I promise we’ll work on them together.

Tell me your beliefs
your thoughts on the world
everything and anything in between
I may or may not agree
but tell me
for I will be grateful
for a different lens to look through
and the expansion of my knowledge.

I swear I’ll never get bored
and I’ll tell you what makes my heart sing
and even ache
So please skip the formalities
and tell me what matters to you
And maybe one day
you’ll tell others
how much I mean to you.
