We both like comfort
We met halfway
But we have our problems
So neither will want to stay
Because to stay long enough
Would mean we’d dive too deep
But I still want you to hold
Onto me, hold onto me
You’re a drifter
I’m a dreamer
We have these differing ideals
Except when in close proximity
Your covers are mine to half-heartedly steal
Still we’d long to cling like
Vines to trees
So hold onto me, hold
You say if we get close and dive too deep
You’d be devastated if I’d hate you –
So you stay away
And I understand that wish to avoid the pain –
Could you comfort me anyways?
Like bright eyes would croon in a voice strangled speak:
If you love something set it free.
“if you love something then give it away”
let me put my hands up
concede that indecision is tough
and walk away, walk away.
Heya, so this will be a longer post, but given the fact that I haven’t posted since April 2014, an update is needed. I’m going to be more active on this blog, as in, one post every day for 365 days. It’ll be a mix of old and new poetry, along with some daily ramblings. Enjoy! (Or suffer, your choice.)
An Old Poem
Hips in position, labored breathing in and out;
don’t know why I didn’t listen at all,
and imagined it would go away while in
Surrounded by sheetless white, laying there –
you’ve been on my mind.
I couldn’t wait until the end of day,
didn’t care if the Sun himself would disturb our play.
Afterwards, we spoke of trivial things,
neither wanting to go home alone.
My bed’s been preoccupied for this whole time,
and looking back, I realize far too late –
you were the one for me.
Inspired by Adele’s “Hello”
How has it been
Since we’ve spoken
Events passed until
We met again
We shared aspirations
And with a handshake
Began our year of posts
And all we’ve got is time.
