Undying

His fear is evident;

we’ve been waiting so long,

many times unable to hold on.

Our paths, crossed 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,

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 theres not much I can do,

except maybe say,

I’ve always loved you.

All Consuming Flame

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.
