A blur

You know that feeling where it all just feels like a blur,

Two lost souls, two different worlds,

Answers in their eyes, yet they are so far,

You would do anything just to see their gaze, to feel there eyes on you,

And slowly, but surely, the wind whispers,

Please move on, there’s nothing left for you here.

Indescribable

Once in a while…ok that’s a lie,

Constantly…that’s more like it

You’re in my thoughts,

I just want to hold you under the dark night sky,

To laugh, to live, to just be in that moment,

In almost-lovers eyes, we’ll stare at what we could have been.

 

I can’t describe the way I feel when I’m around you,

I feel impulsive, I feel like I want to be let go,

I know what you want –

A beautiful woman wrapped around your arms,

With soft kisses as sweet as candy,

Like memories that never fade,

Like a music box that continuously plays.

 

I hardly see you now and I know this is the way things should be,

It’s what’s best for us, but maybe in a different lifetime,

When we become what they call ‘grown ups’,

We’ll decide to rebel against the world,

Against the pain, the worry and the uncertainty that comes along with youth,

With growing up and maturing,

With falling in and out of love,

With knowing what you want and don’t want,

Through figuring out the person you’ve become.

 

I can’t help the way I’m drawn to you, it’s all that non-verbal shit,

The way you look at me, the way you and I know what we’re both thinking,

I’d honestly rather forget,

But your words say one thing, and your eyes say another,

All I really need to do is look into them, that’s where I find my answers,

There’s really no need to ask, yet I always think,

I think and think and think.

 

It’s because there’s something between us,

Some call it chemistry, it’s some sort of stupid spark,

I don’t get it, I honestly don’t get you,

But one day I will, and one day we’ll get carried away,

In an indescribable moment, that just feels right,

When things that didn’t make sense before finally do,

And you realise, all you needed to do was wait,

To be patient, to be kind, to be rest assured that thing will work itself out.

 

 

Our Moment

Sometimes I still think of you, the one with the green eyes,

The person who believed in me, when I doubted myself,

You have many dreams, and I believe you’ll go far,

I hope one day you’ll think of me, and smile,

We carry on with our day to day lives,

We are in our twenties and we still have a lot to learn,

To be young and reckless, to be bold and courageous,

If life is said to be full of moments, then I know our moment came,

It also passed, along with the whispers of the wind,

Though you’ll always have a special place

Right here, in this beating heart of mine.

Inside

In a distance so close it made me feel strangely comfortable,

In a moment of nothing but bliss, I looked into your eyes,

I noticed how often they change colour in different lights,

I also noticed how bad I wanted you, but couldn’t have you.

 

That accidental brush against my shoulder, it stirs me inside,

All that hoping and wishing, it drives me crazy inside,

Sometimes it’s easier not to look your way, for it breaks my heart inside,

That’s how I feel, that’s exactly how I feel inside.

The wrong girl’s heart

A shy wave and a slight smile,

It made me feel as though I could fly,

You had me then on that summer day,

You put my heart in some sort of dismay.

 

We’d look at each other, but never speak,

One day, some day,

I’d say, we’ll find a way,

But that hope in my mind slowly slipped away,

For I saw you with her, your arms tightly around her,

You kissed her forehead, and I think you were in bliss,

What can I say, that kiss made me see,

You clearly gave me a miss.

 

Your eyes don’t lie, and all I can do is sigh,

For I think you’ve won the wrong girl’s heart,

What can I do, please let me be,

For all I can say is, I’m happy for you.

“Do you fall in love often? Yes often. With a view, with a book, with a dog, a cat, with numbers, with friends, with complete strangers, with nothing at all.” — Jeanette Winterson (Gut Symmetries)

These days people are fixated with falling in love, but really it is the idea of falling in love that they are obsessed with. Words are powerful. If you learn to read between the lines, you’re not only encapsulated by the meaning within those words, but you also realise that they offer you new perspective. I love this quote because today I have realised that falling in love does not necessarily mean finding Mr. Right/’The One’/Tuxedo Mask/your ‘other half’ or whatever you wish to call them. Instead, falling in love, for me at least, means finding what it is your heart is searching for through the beauty hidden in this crazy world of ours. In my 21 years of existence, I have realised that I have fallen in love countless times, with not only people, but pets I’ve had through the years, beautifully crafted poetry, cute things, weird things, and most recently, myself.

Maybe in different worlds and in different times

Please don’t stare at me

Because I might just want to run away,

Away with the wind, and into your arms,

I say that now, but then I think twice,

As there is someone waiting for you, and it’s not me,

So for God’s sake, don’t look my way, and I won’t look yours.

 

For each time you do,

My heart feels heavy, as if it doesn’t know what to say,

It makes me feel like it’s raining, and all I want to do is stay,

They say, one’s eyes are a window to their soul,

Beauty, constraint, and longing, that’s what I see in yours,

They speak to me as though we know each other,

But maybe in different worlds and in different times.

 

With a stare too long, I look away,

A strong gust of wind awakens me, it frees me,

As it gently whispers what’s true,

That I’m not yours, and your not mine,

Maybe in different worlds and in different times,

I’ll once again notice that stare, that once gave light to this lonely heart of mine.
