What more can one wish for at the end of the counting of blessings?
Past the limit of their greatest efforts and exhausted breaths?
What love is should be tested, and if true, never broken.
Immortal to beyond a dying breath, where patience is our only friend with faith.
Holding hands and walking through Hell with your head high
and a love for your lover coursing through your veins.
Through thick and thin stays the course on which I tread,
while loving you with each and every step.
For better or worse, until death do we part only to later meet
and love one another again and forever. Persevere, my love, for I am with you always.

Though I am not in love yet, I will be.
I remember how our eyes will meet;
you will see the green stars in my eyes for what they are.
I am afraid.
1. I am star-crossed, tattooed and traversed;
my clumsy limbs build a bridge of my belly
for the constellations to write their paths onto my pounding heart.
Some days these star charts are a chain link fence across my body
and on others—I can trace your name in the lines between my stars,
not the name you bear now but the true one I have always known,
the one that is for me.
2. Nostalgia is always poetic, but the blood memories

A beautiful princess caught my eye.
Her smile dripped with pigments
No master could ever mix.
And her eyes were a masterpiece
My lines could never describe.
She broke through stanza after stanza,
And stole my ink drenched heart.
She captured it with an artist’s charm
And painted it over with question marks.
Would her watercolor hand
Fit with one bound to the pen?
Would lips caressed by the brush
Be too delicate for a poet’s passion?
Would a soul baptized in paint
Twirl with one tattooed by her words?
Could eyes trained in color
Read the inky passion in mine?
Could eyes drawn to landscapes
For want of WingsIf I could have wings, I would fly to you. I would fly away from the land I've always known and cross the distance on passionate fiery wings. I would fly to your home of eternal summer, a place of sand and palm trees.For want of Wings21 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
I would sing out for you, my beautiful swan, and we would fly away together, leaving the earth behind and enter the sky of love. We would dance among the stars, a swan and a firebird, our voices filling the night sky as we sing together.
We would laugh and smile, holding each other tight, never letting go as you guide me in every dance you know, while I would sing sweet lullabies and beautiful love songs softly into your ears.

I've never seen you so beautiful before
A tear comes to my eye
I let it flow
because I'm so happy

All my worries and doubts disappear

Everything around me disappears
All that matters is you
the only words I can manage to say
are I love you

I must congratulate you
not only did you make my day
you made my life
I'll gladly stand by you

I promise I'll remember

babe you only get more beautiful from now on
I promise to love you

Broken down, wishing someone would stay.
Remember there will always be someone watching.
To hold your hand in harmony, hope you haven't forgotten.
When you have seen the worst of it all.
Feeling drowned, like you are you are ready to fall.
Remember someone close will lend a hand.
To bring you back up and help you understand.
State of decay
and so many other way.
Having to watch you fall
Was the worst I ever felt
Like watching some block my call
I could not help
Retrace my steps
Go back through sands of time
Drown in it
Claim back what is rightfully mine

True love is, knowing his breath isn't the freshest, but kissing him anyway. Even slipping a little tongue in too, knowing he'd like it.
True love is, not feeling offended when he comments on your slightly hairy legs.

True love is, not puppy love. Not so unbearably lovey that everyone in the room could vomit in unison.

My eyes open wide
Shining like the sun in the sky
But there's another side
It’s darker, scarier
Where I keep the things I hide
A place devoid of color
A pitch black ocean
Eats away at my insides
Like acid it burns
Destroying my heart
And everything for which it yearns
The ground is made of the glass;
Shards of shattered dreams
Broken by reality,
or my own misdeeds
When I'm here all I do is bleed.
Screaming someone help me;
Trapped within a prison of my own design
Only sometimes do I escape for a time
it’s not an easy escape through
the subzero cold ,

My nights and days just melt.
Unless used to measure
How long I wait for you,
You are the only drink of coffee

Sleep, exhaustion and weary eyes
Catch up to me in your absence
Because when you leave, you take
With you, your world. Our world,
Where sleep is obsolete, time is frozen,
Our bodies ethereal, our minds infinite
And our hearts
Our magical, nonsensical world
Built of your voice, your breath...,
Soon our realities will converge
And sleeping will be just as good as waking
For I'll be with you from
The setting to the rise of your eyes.

although i call myself a writer
i lose eloquence when it matters so
i borrow words that echo in me
(itself a borrowed metaphor)
there are words that are forthright
and honest in their intent
that say i love you in as many words
and they are for everyone
who has ever been in love
there are words that are a secret
hidden without their context
that only say i love you if you look
and they are only for us
if we choose to hear them
there are words i steal for you
but they all boil down
in the end, to: i love you
i love you

Never to ComeFlowers bloom across the summer fieldsNever to Come6 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Love grows between two young people
Soft winds of summer blow over the field
The love grows stronger, warming their hearts
With the wind come the sweet scents of the season
With the love comes the sweetness of joy and togetherness....
...The fields are filled with the songs of birds,
The love the two share fill them with songs of happiness,
At night the field is peaceful as the creatures of the night continue the song,
Nights bring the young lovers closer together as love’s song grows stronger.
Many days pass the same as those before them-
Warm, welcoming, sweet and happy
Many nights pass as the one before light by star,
light by the soft light of the moon
Peaceful and filled with soft songs and love
The flowers bloom in the fields,
The love grows stronger between the two.
The wind turns cold and gets stronger,
Trouble comes into the lover's lives.
The flowers are torn up as the wind rips its way through

like planting a kiss

or riding bikes down gravel paths
is it warm and gentle
like the air in late may
or a hand caressing your cheek
like burying your face
into a comforting shoulder
or cuddling under blankets mid-storm

Looking at how much beauty they have.
To feel there heart beat as fast as mine.
Knowing they feel and know my thoughts, my struggles, and desires.
Wanting to keep them safe and close is all I want.
Wanting it to last forever and ever.
That they accept me the way I am.
Knowing when the end is near and comes our days.
I will rejoice that I found them and never letting them go.
Even in death I will always love you so.

Transcendent, to the point that these metaphors I write as I try and show some small part of how I feel for you wither in comparison to the real thing.
If I had from the beginning of time, an thesaurus of every language and a computer to write with I could hardly start to describe to you how much you mean to me.
And no matter how many times I tell you it's never enough to convey how much I truly mean it.
But it's the best I can do and the easiest way to express my self to you. I love you. And you can ignore all the pretty words and fancy similes because that is what it comes down to and

Near a lake they sparkled
In a shining lake
where diamonds seem to float
and trees seem to shine

She held herself, oh so, tightly
'til I spared to look

The stars stopped twinkling
the moon stopped shinning
for she was all that I see
The small diamonds faded
Diamonds that all I see
were in her tears
she was everything that a gloomy forest needed
The wind swayed the grass
and made her smile
Her smile was more radiant than the sun itself
but what is this?!
Into dust, she came to be
and was swept again by the wind
A figment of imagination
she will never be
