I SHOULD

We met because of her smile
& the calm of her aura while
i wasn’t in position to walk with her the whole mile
yet i tried even though

I

Should let these emotions go
then i see your face on my phone
wanting to call, but no
i’ll leave her alone

Its

Better this way i suppose
hoping you’re not feeling down & low
cause motivation & love for you is all i know

Early

Morning conversations with winks & jokes
lets not talk about your pictures or written words i spoke
I try to say things with my mouth full, but i choke

Last

At bat while i try to close
like a pitcher seeing where the catcher wants me to throw
the batter came up, but the timing was all out of the zone
Couples-holding-hands

THE LOVE I SEEN

I wrote hey
& you said nothing trying not to fall prey
to the beautiful truths on my mind i wanted to parlay

Due

To the circumstances my thoughts say
i think we could be friends
yet my soul can’t quite hop over that fence

I

Try to forget about the love i seen
& the storyboard that was placed in those scenes
emotionally i close my eyes yet i can’t sleep

Cause

I exhale & inhale you when i breathe
by filtering you through loves spleen
like an atheist saying God damn
i now believe in you cause of this woman

Yeah

She’s helped me connect with emotions hard to understand
conveying them into the memoires of a new man
so i thank you for showing me who i am

With

The residue
of what i should do
with my selfishness only wanting to groom you
i don’t expect anything from you
yet i want all of you

Invested

Into your thoughts
deep down to my soul before it clots
knowing who & what means a lot
Shhhhh… It’s all for not

 

HER NOTE

Whispers spoken with slightly opened lips
her soft breath is a sensation that feels like a kiss
she says 2 peas in a pod & i say soul mate to this

Everything

I feel & write about you is true
like a drunk man unleashed with his points of view
no one truly knows
how i feel about you
not even me…

SO

I write to take you places
like a book looking at you; I hope you face it
as i see you from all directions
which is deeper than any other sensation

I

Love it when your hair is in a bun
plain & simple second to none
lip gloss & minimal makeup
even when i am lonely its hard to focus
thinking of you hope you know this

You’re

Not a magician, but i know
where all the magic goes
she sends me her selfie, now watch my pen blow
as my eternal light for her extends its glow
written in this poetic note

I SUPPOSE

I suppose we all have standards
but what if i abandon me for her
in the name of love registered
to see if that would make me a bastard

I

Suppose that if you edit your pictures enough
& get 100 likes you’ll feel beautiful enough
that’s why i ask to see you minus makeup
different from what the world see’s concealed & touched up

I

Suppose that they only liked your editing skills
while i only want to see & love whats real
you’re just as elegant to me in sneakers as you are in heels

I

Suppose this is to remind you how i feel
towards you & your beauty sealed
in my heart that’s being revealed

I

Suppose i can tell you that i’ve signed up
to undressing you mentally & filling my half empty cup
more concerned about your inner beauty than facebook quotes

I

Suppose i could keep writing these notes
just so you can see what i already know
& this is all about your inner soul in this post
& that i wont suppose

IN MY DREAMS

She stays in my dreams now
i’m not sure how to keep her out
even awake she’s mostly what i think about

Trying

Not to make an old dream new again, but how
when she’s the sky & my thoughts are the clouds
so how can i keep these feelings concealed
when i know she’s all to real

Well

I guess i could ignore or explore whats in my head
i write to immortalize what needs to be said
even though i’m trying to forget
the way she has me coming clean

Like

A psychedelic trip
airy visions lifted out of loves seed
with her all in my dreams

OLD TEXTS W/SPOKEN WORDS

I read the old texts
& like a ghost you’ve disappeared now whats next
other than to relive the first time we met

From

The emails,to us upgrading into the virtual world of text
revisiting old messages & thoughts
same passions including the arts
poetically & entrepreneurially we spoke about life & our wants

Honestly

Its easy to say the silence is a plus
but it also makes it harder to say I miss us
the triumphs & lumps
the pictures,the flight

You

Always put a smile on my face the way i like
all eyes on me on stage, yet i feel no fright
cause my feelings are pure on any given day or night

The

Concept of you living in my heart has always felt right
no matter the gloom or detours you always shine bright
cause you’re vision to my sight
I still love you the way these old texts recite

WHEN I

Funny thing is, when i see or think of you
like a cab driver as you enter i ask where to
& if talk is expensive
& silence is worth nothing
& you can’t afford it
then what do we have….

Nothing

Is the word that answers the riddle
that’s unwanted on nice skin compared to a pimple
she’s all in my spirits
like goods in a package i want to be in it

Wink

Tomorrow may never show up
but as long as i grip you to my love
each morning you’ll understand what i wrote above
on overload like oreo’s double stuffed

When

I tell you how i dreamed of
the way i’d get lost
with you at all cost
no lips needed to see you gloss

Coffee

Cup on the table with your legs semi-crossed
as I look at you by the window
staring at your heart shaped pose
locked in & froze
knowing i’ll love you the most
