Sun-Kissed

20170706_183045The sun kissed my skin
Its rays dispersed into my membranes;
And for a moment it shrouded my pain,
Then seeped into the clouds.
The taste of its vitamins
Now bittersweet.
Its kisses failed to eliminate
Those you bestowed upon me.

Arms wide open

You held out your hand for a fist pump

But I immediately went in for a hug.

Why am I like this?

All I wanted was a kiss.

You keep saying that you want to be

Just friends

But I’ve seen how your eyes devour me.

Now, your cologne lingers

On my leather jacket.

You go off to sleep with her;

I lock myself in the closet.

I keep hoping one day,

When you’re done playing,

You will have the courage to look back in.

There is no guarantee

But you might just find me

Waiting for you, with arms wide open.

Starlight Dreams

He was a little boy dreaming of the stars,

She was a girl who believed in dreams.

 

The night they met, they spoke until the morning

Reciprocating ideas, each other’s brains devouring

It was difficult to find

A man like him.

But she was enslaved

To a boy

Who silenced her mind.

 

During their next encounter,

They had both escaped their ghosts.

Their walls began to shatter,

He held her tiny body close.

Raindrops danced around them

As their universe collided with a kiss.

Never had she met a man like this.

 

Stars decorated the midnight sky

As they bid each other goodbye.

They appeared much closer now than before…

The little boy’s dream was a dream no more.
