Screaming pleasure, as your hand
covered my mouth,
lowering into depths,
lost in the motion,
the mechanics of it,
mistaken to be love.

I look into your eyes,
and in that moment, I’m lost.
By the looks of it,
so are you.
Your undying concern,
“What’s wrong?”
Swallowing the lump in my throat,
shaking voice, and a thumping heart,
“This.” You look confused.
"I’m scared." I shouldn’t have said anything.
A ‘nothing’ would have brought
us back to our moment.
But, I spoke, I did.
And, now I cannot
take it back.
You lift yourself
and lie next to me.
That innocence
on your face,
your eyes so young,
so caring and so soft.
I’m already dead inside,
for what I’m about to say,
what I’m about to do.

You most probably thought
it was your weight.
Oh darling,
how you never dwell into depths.
“Then?” You shoot,
leaving no time for
me to fake a reason,
to feed your false consciousness,
to take back
what I cannot.

I sit up,
pulling the sheets around me,
so do you.
I look into your eyes,
and I can hold
your gaze no more.
I can face
that love no more.
A tear falls,
as it was ought to.
I curse myself
for being so weak,
for letting these tears
bare my emotions,
that I had covered so well.

You ask again,
and this time I cannot contain,
I can hold back no more.
So I say, I finally say, “I want you to love me.”
You chuckle at the
sound of that.
I didn’t intend it to be funny.
“But I love you,
I love you so much.”
Your perfect attempt
at covering this topic.
I know I’ve said this before,
time and again,
on more occasions than
I can recall.
But, the fear of losing you
silenced my wanting heart.

As anger replaces my fear,
and intensity deepens,
“You are in a denial
if you think this is love.
This? Have you ever
had a moment
to stop. Wait and think?
This, you call love?
Yes, oh yes. You are
there at one call of mine,
ready to do whatever
that’ll make me smile,
take me to places,
and entertain me plenty.
Make love anytime and anywhere,
but love? Where is the love?”

Primele două strofe au fost scrise acum aproximativ 5 ani, și poezia a rămas neterminată până de curând când am refăcut-o în engleză și i-am mai adăugat o strofă. Azi am adăugat acea strofă și în română.

and he was the kind of boy who made you wonder what life was truly worth. the boy that touched hearts despite his quiet behavior. the boy that had only kind words and pretty smiles and encouragement. the kind of boy who never asked for anything even if he was falling apart at the seams. the boy who was warm and watched flowers bloom.
and he loved softly, purely.
• 07, and he will stay the same despite changing seasons.•

Once upon a time there was a forest
It belonged to no one, it was pure and free
God given nature shared from tallest to smallest
A hub for the cubs of the community.
People came with an eye for possession
If this can be mine then I can help no more
Laziness entwined with greed, the obsession
But if we shared the load, there’d be no poor.
Trees slain, forests torn and tower blocks built
Enslaved and entrapped work ensues til the grave
Give me those numbers on screens without guilt,
This is the land that we now live on, depraved.

“I believe in going with the flow. I don't believe in fighting against the flow. You ride on your river and you go with the tides and the flow. But it has to be your river, not someone else's. Everyone has their own river, and you don't need to swim,float,sail on their's, but you need to be in your own river and you need to go with it. And I don't believe in fighting the wind. You go and you fly with your wind. Let everyone else catch their own gusts of wind and let them fly with their own gusts of wind, and you go and you fly with yours.” ― C. JoyBell C.
