One and Only

Let the World Know


I looked at him as I lied next to him.

This man who had been through so much with me,

this man who had in his own way tried to set me free.

Sure he was flawed as we all are,

yet he was true and honest right from the start.

This man who had loved me regardless of all the mistakes I made

or the games that unconsciously I played.

I looked at the man I had loved for so long, 7 years.

 Regardless if we were together or apart,

he always managed to have my heart.

I took a moment to look at him,

to really cherish what was in front me.

I think at that moment, in that split second,

I understood why my heart was broken and always closing.

I comprehended why everything seemed so bleak,

when he wasn’t next to me.

He was, my biggest regret,

losing him was my saddest failed test.

He was my alfa and I was he was his omega,

I was his darkness and he was my light.

He was everything that could go right,

that one person for which you always fight.

He was and is a person you have to love,

because a part of him just seems to be sent from above.

I looked at him realizing for the first time,

he was that one person I could never forget because my life drastically changed; the day our souls met.

Only days pass before I begin to yearn for him and I can only hope he feels the same. The thought of him consumes my soul and it just makes me love him so much more. My heart is once again alive regardless of how much time has passed. I can feel his touch even when it hasn’t occurred and to some, it might seem absurd, but every thought just makes me work up my nerve. To fight for him like I’ve never fought before because this could lead to so much more. A life of happy moments and perfect nights, alongside the man who was always right. The only man who stuck by me through thick and thin and was never scared to show me what was within. A man so selfless, who would let another have my heart if this would turn my life into art. But he’s the man who inspires my soul and makes me search for more. He’s the man I can never forget and whom no matter, what I never regret. He’s the man only man I want to love because in him I can always trust.

Maybe Someday


His fear is evident; we’ve been waiting so long, and many times we weren’t able to hold on. Our paths, cross and crossed but never seemed to align, no matter how much we searched we could never each other find. Now we’re here face to face but no one knows what choice to make or if we should just let it all fade. But the memories are buried deep inside, and there begging that we don’t let them die. We’ve survived too much to give up now, but the question always remains and that is how. How do we let go of all the scars traced across our hearts, those scars that at night tear us apart. He’s the one I’ve been searching for all this time, not knowing he’s been here all along, tied to the notion that we belong. If only we could let go of all the hurt and all the pain, maybe we could erase our mistakes and finally mend all the heartbreaks. But his fear is evident and there’s not much I can do, except maybe say, I’ve always loved you.

One word can not express, all the feelings that run through my head and make me have long conversations in bed. Feelings of love, happiness, and hope, that operate along a fine scope. A muse that makes me feel alive and takes away all the why’s. A perfect drug crafted to my desire and every day takes me higher. A constant motivation to keep fighting, fueled by words that make life so exciting. A growing desire to let all the bad die and only focus on being by your side. A love so real you can feel the approval of God, leaving you completely awed. Not one word, nor a million could express what resides deep inside but every day I will lay my head knowing I tried. And as we sleep side by side, there will be no worries, there will be no whys, there will only be the remainders of the efforts that make you want to fly and let you have small pieces of heaven, bestowing everyday blessings upon blessings.

Hearts connected,

Hearts so strong,

Hearts led by one song.

Hearts opened and renewed.

Hearts that know what to do.

Hearts filled with love and desire,

Hearts alive with special fires.

Hearts so anxious,

Hearts so dire.

Hearts with so much to aspire.

Hearts with love and so much hope,

Hearts with many ways to cope.

Consider the Conviction 

He’s the answer to my question but I can’t help but feel deception. Bold statements done and said, no one expects us to wed. You have to be perfect, you have to great. Have you ever thought it might not be fate? Maybe its time to close the gate. Let the love fade, its ok to feel some rain. Why be scared of the pain, if it can lead to so many gains? But what if life brought them together? What if they’re supposed to withstand the strongest weather? What if it was meant to be forever?

Lovers Embrace 


We meet for the very first time, it’s not wrong but we commit the crime. We’re more than happy, to later do our time. All that matters is the here and now when you take me into that deep cloud. This makes us proud. When you cultivate my feelings, straight to the climax, there is no relax. We dance together, this short moment is forever. We intertwine our spirits, our souls, yet it’s not enough we want more. We need to stride to the rhythm of love, it’s perfect it’s so rough. You pour your feelings on to my body, I share my ending with nobody. Nobody that is but with you, because our love is a love of two.-M. Fernández

All Consuming Flame

20140405105812.jpg Image:

Never had I loved with the intensity of a thousand fires.

Nor had I felt so much passion and desire.

In your eyes, I saw an everlasting calmness, a passiveness that eased my being.

Yet a fire that stirred up my heart and ignited my mind.

I can still feel your fingers tracing my broken silhouette, making it whole again.

And boy did it feel good to be in your arms, oh, so good, to hold you forever tight.

To drift off into your being, share the deepest parts of my soul.

Never had it felt so good, to be so close.

To have my heart ripped out of my chest, have it taken care of at its best.

I can still feel your hugs screaming my name.

Giving loose end, to my all-consuming flame.

Your soft, sweet kisses, reviving my cheek, your cool breath under the starry night.

Everything good, everything right. Everything bright.

Never did I remember loving you so much, as I remember tonight.

Tortured Love

Somehow you always seem to find a way to leave me behind broken and alone, waiting for you to come home.

I rock myself to sleep with the feeling that I’m cheap.

Never good enough for you to turn your ways, never fight and stay, always walk away.

So once again I’m left picking up the pieces, of all the boys who broke my soul.

Yet for some reason, I’m still waiting for you to come home.

Hoping that somewhere deep inside your heart, you truly don’t want to be apart.

Making a silent prayer for you to come back and tell me you’re sorry you lost your track.

But my hope is always in vain, because your heart, I can not tame.

I’m starting to go insane, I don’t like this game.

You revive me just to kill me again.

I’m lost between what is now and what was then.

Maybe I should just let you go, it’s clear; you are not coming home.

Given / Response- Love of Lies

Given by Irving Cruz

Almost every day people could hear your cries…

It serves you right for all your lies…

And every time it rains…

I don’t know why but I feel your pain…

It’s like I could see you through the raindrops crying…

And I know I have to do something but I’m not trying…

I went to your house to see you…

I didn’t know what to say…

But I had a feeling that I should stay…

I really wanted to tell you the truth…

So here it goes I love you…

Response by M.A. Fernández

My lies were all I ever had…

Your indecisive mind just drove me mad…

Maybe I’m not the only one feeling pain…

I mean how could we tell with all this rain…

If you have to do something, then do it fast…

Because there is no other way to make this last…

It doesn’t matter if you don’t know what to say…

If you think you should stay…

Then just don’t go away…

I’m really glad you told me the truth…

So here’s my response, I love you too…
