Beautiful

You couldn’t be any more beautiful. The one that has set the standard. Not that I plan on ever meeting another. For who are we kidding? No other would have a chance. You get all my love, yeah, every last bit. Leaving me would break me to the very core. Unable to stand, unable to…

A Year Ago

(On August 1st, 2019, my prayer from the night before was answered) A year ago I didn’t know the journey I was about to embark on. A year ago I woke up with a completely new mindset. To let go of all the stuff from the past that hurt me. That stuff I always carried…

Ch. 12: The Engagement

With everyone ready to surprise her even more than she already was, I beckoned all of them to come out and celebrate our engagement. Surprise! Everyone yelled. She was so ecstatic. “I was about to call you”, she told her parents. She was so enamored with the engagement ring that her parents gave me to…

You Hurt Me

You hurt me the day it all came to an end. As if I never mattered to you as much as you did to me. Yeah catching me by surprise no longer being my friend. As if I never earned your trust as you ended it abruptly. And now it’s a little too late. Yes,…

What I Feel

Can I shed tears? Is it that serious? My mind is filled with thoughts about you. My heart's sad that I may never see you again. I want to yell in frustration. Loudly. Should I though? Am I out of my mind? Can these feelings be lying to me? My feelings for you are real.…

Ch. 11: The Proposal

As I walked up to the front door of our place, I thought it’d be better if I played up my witty side as to not give away the fact that I had an engagement ring in my pocket. It was the only way I could contain my excitement, by trying my best to be…

Just Another Guy

I was just another guy Who decided to try To see if you were free To possibly go out with me. Didn't turn out as I'd hope The second you went and said nope. Now nearly a year has passed And our bond just couldn't last So now I'm just another guy Who decided to…

Ch.10: The Blessing

Her father calling me was surprising, but I wasn’t nervous as we had gotten along well at this point. He began by saying, “I know how you two feel about each other, and I have to admit, I’ve never seen her as happy as she’s been since she first told my wife and I about…

Reunion

I’ve written a poem for all to hear, hence I’ve taken centerstage. One that I hope resonates with all of you no matter your age. How I looked forward to these days, any longer I just couldn’t afford. For we know that where believers gather, there also is the Lord. So let us rejoice, for…

Kissing The Silence

Here I lay just kissing the silence. Even though she's right next to me. If that doesn't paint the picture Of what we have come to be. What once was my life's armor, Is now the reason I can't breathe. Suffocating from this solitude. I hate that I now want her to leave. And so…

No More Love

If I told you to echo the words I speak, would it make them stronger or make them weak? There’s no more love between us, All we ever do now is fight. There’s no more love between us, The clock has struck midnight. Telling me your sorry just won’t do this time. Telling you I’m…

Ch.9: Moving In Together

After we got back from our “christening trip” at the resort, we couldn’t keep our hands off each other. It seemed like every night we were getting more and more passionate. It was amazing to say the least. Still though, we were still focused and determined to find our dream home to move into as…

Picture Perfect

He was walking around outside with his hands framing different stuff when she approached him. What are you doing? She asks. I’m looking for a beautiful image to inspire my next poem, he says. How about the blue sky? It’s so pretty. she recommends. No. I don’t want pretty, he says as he continues to…

The Words of My Heart

Love, it’s all that I feel for you, that you can genuinely believe. If it weren’t for you, this soul of mine wouldn't come up for me. My happiest days are the ones you look at me like that. Staring into those eyes is all I need to get back on track. I wrote these…

Mi Bella Dama

No sé cuánto más puedo aguantar con este corazón que no tiene un lugar. Lugar para dar mi amor, un sentimiento que es lo peor. No teniendo la oportunidad de sentir la gran emoción. Te verte cada día y exudarte toda mi pasión. Entonces es por eso por lo que he vivido con dolor Desde…

Knight Falls

I treated each of them like a Queen All in hopes that I'd see my dream Come true. My loyalty was unmatched towards them All in hopes that I'd at least gain a friend Or two. Never thought of myself as a King All in hopes that one day I'd give them a ring Symbolizing…
