Come to the doorway and stay a moment
hardly saw you standing there the first time
wrapped in apprehension; my judgments
did not do justice to the finer tastes
of nibbles and gently placed kisses.
Take a seat and attempt to meet me
as I greet you the second time
and notice the color of your arrival
like a signal to pay attention lest
probings fail at sweet flirtations.
My friend, we all need a moment,
that we can truly say is ours, in which
we shone so brightly for something
or someone; too be remembered as
beautiful and fragile yet complex.
And should you or I absorb to much fun
and think on it, and know that there
were simple delights enough to hide
in our hearts; melting away all nonsense
of the reality that some of us are prisoners.
Freedom comes by choice, the hard ones,
we think will break us or another.
So we refrain and in vain live out our lives
stuck, obsessively, only ever knowing
just a taste of what it means to be beautiful.
I’ll admit that here and now
Without you filling the spaces
Between the highs and lows
Of my life, recently – I find myself
A little lost.
Its more than a nice thought
To think of you
And know that I inspire you
Just as you inspire me
And that sense of freedom;
I am craving more and more.
Knowing I am closer and closer
To the center of your heart
Just as you are in mine
And hoping time is on my side this time
To let you know
You are worth the while
To wait around
‘till I see you next.
Hey girl, it’s been a brand new thing
Getting to know you day by single day
Getting closer to you and finding
Moment by moment you’re in my thoughts
Life shifts so fast from 0 to 90 in less than 60
This turn around its more like 360 than 180
Steady and ready to test fate and create art
Push the limits of my heart, sparked to life
by pain and passion of the past, playing my hand
at trying to last – to somehow give meaning
to today – found here in the words I have to say.
Life and all its drama; strife and dilemmas
I simply think of you now
More often than I have before
I ponder a lot of things
And hesitate sometimes and wonder.
And then start again and smile
Knowing you make my days sweeter.
I find you wandering
through my thoughts more often now.
Sometimes it seems like time passes
a little slower.
Dejavu like feeling
‘cause its not been long since you’ve been here
As the fresh memories replay
I’m already thinking of tomorrow
And missing you from now till then
As my thoughts assure me that
I am indeed growing fonder of you.
My hearts racing faster than my thoughts,
Faster than my hand can get them down.
Cause baby, once again you’ve turned me around
From high to low, you got to know
You make me feel so electrified and I can’t deny
I got a thing for you and have always
Been standing right here just for you
Waiting for you to make up your mind
Hoping you’d finally understand and find
Love waiting here in my heart for you
And all you’ve had to simply do
Was reach out and take it and make it yours
Silly girl, sometimes it’s just stepping through that door
Opening up your heart and letting me in
Understanding that understanding begins
When two hearts are patient and forgiving
Cause baby, I got a lot love for the giving,
And if it’s here and now, I’d do it while we’re living
Not caring what may be down the road
Cause what’s down the road could be too late
So while it’s passionate and late
I’m writing poetry inspired just by you
Being so simply wonderful, you’re wonderful, wonderful.
No matter what you do, just believe – it’s true.
I love you.
