? ...GONE... ?

I never knew until that moment how bad it could hurt
To lose someone you never really had,
Days can be tough and at times cruel
To much for one to bear alone..

I was hoping that you would say
If I feel that I can't hold on any longer,
You'll take my hand and we'll go through it until together.
When the time comes, that if I can't stand on my own again
And I won't need you anymore, I will let go.
I will let go, if that would make you happy..

If you're lonely and your heart feels empty, 
Just tell me and I will step inside.
But if One Day, you'll be needing that space for someone else
Don't worry and gladly I will give in my space..

Like in a painful, sad love story
It's amazing how easily to fall inlove with someone,
Who simply smiles, talks or stare at you
The only hard thing to do is to make that person fall for you.
They say that time heals all wounds, but all it's done so far
is give me more time to think about how much I miss You..

Okay, so maybe time heals most wounds, right?
Then why does it feel like it?
The wound is getting bigger and bigger every second.
Maybe Love is just a beautiful dream, and then we wake up..

Just as they always say when somebody leaves
When love is lost, do not bow your head in sadness,
Instead keep your head up high and gaze for the stars.
For that is where broken hearts have been sent to heal..

What is the opposite of Two?..
...A lonely me, A lonely You...

They say relationships are like glass 
That sometimes it's better to leave them broken
Than risk hurting oneself in trying to put it back together.

Lost in my heart, lost in my mind, I'm lost in your eyes
Entire days, weeks, months, ...a blur...
Flickers of light in the darkness 
Only to be enveloped in shadow once more.
And yet within the shadows of pain
Might be the faint flicker of love once fel,t
And that could make all the darkness worthwhile
Because a single "I Love You"
Is worth more than a thousand goodbyes..

I'm tired my Beloved.. 
of chafing my heart against the want of you,
Of squeezing into little inkdrops and writing it.
Ask me why I keep on loving you
When it's clear that you don't feel the same way for me.
The problem is that as much as I can't force you to love me
I can't force myself to stop loving you..

So I tell myself sometimes..
'Count the gardens by the flowers, never by the leaves that fall.
Count your life with smiles and not with tears that roll." ..

Though sometimes, these tears say all there is to say
And the scars don't ever fade away,
I am thankful that for a moment
I once met You, I once felt you look my way.
I once felt You within me, in my heart and mind
I once was happy and alive with You
I once Loved you and still Loving You... xoxo

P.S ..KYHYCYILY.. always.. ? ? ?

Long poem by SILENCE ZVARAYA | Details |

to the messenger of love

I heard that you have made a lot of dreams come alive,
And you have taken a lot of errands only to bring smiles to a lot of faces,
I heard that with loyalty you have made realities which are better than dreams,
Now hear me loyal messenger,
I have written a small note to someone you know,
read it for her, just like that old fairy-tale love story,
I want you to bring out that lovely after ever part, I hope she will smile,
I want you to use that soft voice of yours that I heard you have used to convince a lot that there`s actually true love out there,
I want her to feel it like cold water running down her bare back to give her that chill, those goose bumps, that feeling, that feel to make her smile for no reason: to give her the urge to find a quiet place where she can whisper to the heavens, whisper my name as if it is the only word her lips are able to utter,
Tell her of the place where silence is the loudest kind of noise, the place of untamed purity where she can find the truth about true love,
Please read it for her slowly so that she can realise how long true love can last,
Read it with that smile of yours that I heard is as bright as the reflections of the morning  sun rays scattered  on the morning dew, so that she knows how revealing true love is,
I heard that sometimes you carry pearls along with you, but please don`t give her, she might lose them , instead  just find that seed of a rose , plant it in her fruitful heart, soon it shall blossom in her every day never to be lost,
Tell her that I am the sea and she is the shore, no matter how hard the wind tries to blow me away I will always try hard to kiss her as long as there`s a molecule of oxygen in my lungs and a drop of blood in my vein; she is the earth and I am the sun, no matter how many times I die every night, I will always rise every morning just to shine for her,
Please try to make her smile, you  will never forget that view, you will notice the doors of the heaven open in the radiant  stars, if you stay focused you might hear the angels serenade,
Show her the letter so that she sees my mark,
I want you to say these words as if I`m there and I`m actually speaking to her; I just wonder what you are thinking every time you look at me and smile; you made me not just a man but the happiest man; I do make mistakes but loving you is not one of them; please don`t let me sing sad love songs ever again,
Please Mr Messenger Sir, don`t forget to tell her that she is the reason I`m smiling right now.

My Definition of Love

Love is this-> when you Love or loved someone else, 
But you still have the same feelings you had for 
Them every other day. It’s not always perfect, 
But somehow or another, it’s worth it. 
And being Jealous causes different things to happen. 
Or maybe those stupid, dorky Pick-up-lines 
Do work. Even saying something out of the ordinary 
Is a Pick-up-line. It’s an emotion that is meant for everyone. 
It’s an emotion that wouldn’t make life what it is today. 
Having friends and family around. 
It’s just meant to be. It may not be a love at first sight deal, 
But love IS in Front of you whether you realize it or not. 
Bcuz so many others are thinking of being yours whether You 
Realize it or not. God made life, love. And love is Brilliant,
Amazing, exotic, passionate, and so many other Swirling, 
Heart felt words. 
	Or knowing whether or not they’re 
Thinking of me, I’m thinking of him all the time. 
I know what to say but I think it’s more shown 
Through emotions. Like missing him and crying 
Night and day cuz u want to be with him. 
Dreaming of Dreams hoping it could become a reality. 
And praying for Him and telling him goodnight every 
Night even if I don’t get a respond. 
When I text them and get a respond Or when I Say goodnight and 
Receive it back, I know they’re Okay and know 
They know I say Night before going to sleep.
Or when I say things I didn’t 
Think were funny, they Say LOL and It makes me 
Thinking they think im funny and I have a Personality. 
Or when writing constantly about my thots that I feel 
Relieved. It’s that in feel I get like when 
Getting emails or phone calls every Once in a while. 
And when they say 
Something along the lines of, 
"It’s good to hear your voice". 
	I get Sad and happy when 
I feel a certain way.
 When seeing others in love, it makes me feel 
Sad but makes me realize love is love and it’s all around. 
When listening to sad love songs, I think of 
Being loved. Ive had dreams, visions, & thots of hiding 
And secretly kissing someone or holding hands. 
Or maybe hoping they have a folder full of Letters 
To me that they never sent or let me read. 
It’s a brilliant emotion and it makes you or me or us happy. 
When being sad, they somehow turn my Mood upside Down. 
Or thinking of holding each other & looking deeply 
Inside one each others Eyes. Or when being broken up 
From a past relationship that friendship lasts forever. 
& crying and being jealous bcuz he loves someone else.

Long poem by Edmund Siejka | Details |

Brother and Sister

Susan sits by an open window
Remembering her brother
It was during the sixties when it happened
The exact date was May 8, 1966
They called the Sixties liberating
A time when America accepted change
But it wasn’t like that for everyone
Her brother Stevie
Was two years younger than she was
The guys in school used to call him names
Like sissy boy and queer
Saying if he got into trouble his sister would have to stick up for him.

But Stevie was better
Way better than the bullies at school.

At home Susan and her brother 
Would move the living room coffee table 
Push the old couch back 
And then sing the old favorites 
In close harmony
Songs about teenage love
Like the sad love ballads by the Everly Brothers
Or the Righteous Brothers
The sadder the love song
The more they liked it
They would stand together
Moving ever so slowly
And sing those songs so loud 
And so close 
To each other’s face 
Over and over 
And then Stevie would whistle the ending
While their parents 
Clapped and clapped
And clapped. 

Then one late afternoon
When Stevie didn’t come home from school
The phone rang and rang
With a strange incessant kind of ringing
That jarred their mother  
It was someone from the school saying 
That horseplay got out of hand
Then the police came 
A man in a suit spoke to father in the kitchen
Whispering over the clouds of cigarette smoke 
Susan could barely hear his hoarse whisper 
Only things like “We‘re going to investigate this”
And  “I promise I’ll do what I can”
Her family never did find out what happened to the investigation.

Along the way
Away from home
Something peculiar happened to Susan 
She lost something of herself
And would sit   
Staring out of the window 
Not seeing anything
Just thinking of her brother.

She still does it today
Just staring
Out to nowhere
Every time she hears one of those old songs
She feels that Stevie is still with her.

Forgiveness is a long word
For what happened a long time ago
All Susan has are memories
If she could just absorb them  
And put them in a little bottle 
And carry them around
So whenever she started feeling down
She’d open the bottle 
And all those good memories 
Would remind her just how special life is 
 And Stevie would still be there
Their bodies entwined
Singing harmony
She holding the last note
He snapping his fingers
Whistling the last sad tune.


Long poem by Queen McNair | Details |

Love Gave Me a Reason Part II.

To you I was committed 
            And I admit it
You used to be the keeper 
There's probably no love that's deeper

Tears often kissed my cheek and pain hugged my wounds
I would wake up to scorched suns and sleep under chilled moons

Plagued with such HAPPY SORROW
It seems like I'm living without you today, but I'll be dying without you tomorrow...

LOVE is my stalker:
Creeping through my heart
Sleeping in my DARK
Hiding in the SCARS that leave these marks

Love gave me a reason to
Keep secrets that you would never know
Nights I wept that you can never owe

A slow death was all you seemed to give

And the more you gave the less I lived 

Released from bondage, 
let go of a man that played the role of a kid

At first I didn't want to
But Now I feel blessed that I did

All I needed in a life of sin…
Was me and my boyfriend
            Me and my Toyfriend….

                        Me and my…
Me and MY….

Boy…you're nothing but my DEAD END…

I breathed you like air…

But like hair…
I had to clip you like dead ends
              An empty bank account….
Kept on writing me checks
And when I tried to cash your love it Bounced

So I bounced…

Although I died, I cried not an ounce of tears
But the pain just rips, just drips, and wont stop 
until it tears whatever pieces of my soul you left behind
Because you didn't leave me with a peace of mind

And all I seem to do is keep sad love songs on rewind
Letting it pummel my mind                
FIGHTING against intoxicating Love Potions
As your venom continues to linger in my veins
And your face continues to lie in the nucleus of my brain

I go emotionally insane

Wanting to hate you
Wanting to escape you…..

But instead I clasp my hands and I pray for you
And instead I ask for God to save you
For God to somehow reshape you…
Remake You…..
Break you…


             After all I been through,

                          It's sad that LOVE 

gave me a reason
 to hate you…

             But God gave me the reason to FORGIVE

A Females Path

I have seen a crooked path
I have seen paths that lead in circles
I have seen paths that split into two
I have also seen the best path of them all, the straight one
Nothing is better than seeing a young girl grow mature and become

The struggles she has to go through
The pain she endures
No one can relate no matter how much they say they can
Because a female’s path is not only carried out on land
Her feelings fly high as the sky
And deeper than an earthworm in the soil
Her anger is something like hot water when it begins to boil
Emotions and feelings no person can see
Which lies within her heart and that’s something I can guarantee 
Because they are trapped behind a brick wall
Then encased in a steel box
And then wrapped by big steel locks

Why is her path so rough?
Why is it so hard for her to stay straight?
Why is it so hard to get to a females heart?

Their path is so rough because they got a lot on their plate
Let alone they try to look for that perfect mate
It’s so hard for her to stay straight because of guys
Yes I have grown to accept that and become wise
Guys treat girls as if they were toys
They play with them
They treat them good while she is brand new
Then a new girl comes along
And unfortunately for the other it’s a sad love song
Little do guys know a female’s heart is strong
That’s why it’s so hard to get to
It’s funny because a lot of guys have not even the slightest clue

Most guys don’t think bout the 80/20 rule
And that’s why when they leave their 80 for a 20 they drown in a deep dark pool
I must say I have almost perfected the ways and strategies
In getting to a girls heart
But little do they know…
I am different in so many ways
But to them I am just the same

But who am I to blame
When that’s all they see and know
But maybe its time for a female’s path to grow
I wish I can pick out each one
And put them in God’s bath
And create a whole new outlook on a female’s path

Never Thought I'd Fall In Love (With My Best Friend)

(Chorus): Never thought I’d fall in love with my best friend
Sit on the phone and talk for hours about anything
He knew everything about me
He was there through my ups and downs
But I found out he fooled around
I’d never thought I’d fall in love with my best friend

(Verse 1): Its sad how things change
Seems like I want to put things back in reverse
Now that I see I feel my love life is a curse
So many times he say he’d stick by my side
There wasn’t anything I never had to hide
I never thought I’d find myself in love with you
Now what am I going to do 

(Bridge): I go back and look at the relationship
you left me over someone you never met
tell me how did you fall in love over the internet
Why did you do this to me
Boy it cost so much stress
My heart is broken and I’m in so much mess
Never thought I’d fall in love with my best friend 

(Chorus): Never thought I’d fall in love with my best friend
Sit on the phone and talk for hours about anything
He knew everything about me
He was there through my ups and downs
But I found out he fooled around
I’d never thought I’d fall in love with my best friend

(Verse 2-Rap): Its crazy how you say its not me, its you so please don’t take it the 
wrong way
Then, I sit and I wonder how in the world you can say this to me
Now wondering, asking myself how can I make you stay
When you was leaving me for this other chick
Now you don’t even want to pick up the phone 
Boy I know you at, I’m here all alone
So you sit there and ignore me baby
I thought I was supposed to be your one and only lady
Now I have to sit here and pretend like nothing ever happened
Tell me how am I supposed to deal with this boo
Im so in love with you
you left me for who?
The answer just hurt me so bad
Now we doing another sad love song
How are you to tell me who was wrong or right
These words I write are quite contrite
But since Im not the jealous type
I’ll let it fly
Its sad how you did me baby boy

Sad Love Song

The pretty flowers outside
Will eventually withered
Like my heart that once found happiness
I thought it will last forever
In the end, I am left alone
I am left broken hearted
Everything cannot be undone
Still, I am hoping
For you to be the one

What have happened between us?
Did I hurt you so badly?
But did it ever occur to you
That you are so dear to me

Is it better to forget?
But every time I've tried
Tears welled up in my eyes
We shared too much memories together
I can't bring myself to forget you
I can only wish for a miracle
For I want to continue loving you
Although it is wrong
I am still living with our memories
Written in this sad love song

The pretty skies outside
Will eventually darkened
Like my heart that once found happiness
I thought I will never be hurt
In the end, I am left crying
I am left with a deep wound
Everything cannot be undone
Still, I am hoping
For you to be the one

What have happened between us?
Did I hurt you so badly?
But did it ever occur to you
That you are so dear to me

Is it better to forget?
But every time I've tried
Tears welled up in my eyes
We shared too much memories together
I can't bring myself to forget you
I can only wish for a miracle
For I want to continue loving you
Although it is wrong
I am still living with our memories
Written in this sad love song

Hiding my trembling heart
Pretending to smile at everyone
What am I actually expecting?
A happy or sad ending?

Is it better to forget?
But every time I've tried
Tears welled up in my eyes
We shared too much memories together
I can't bring myself to forget you
I can only wish for a miracle
For I want to continue loving you
Although it is wrong
I am still living with our memories
Written in this sad love song

Love Ballad

 A gentle knight chirped and roaming the way of desert at night.
 His dancy browny hair, blue eyes made romantic guy and couraged.
 He lured by lovely song beyond a hill.
 Eagerly, he rushed his horse and fell swooned.

 He lightly opened his eyes but did not movable, groaning pains.
 His wounds tide with herb and bluey fungus.
 A spinster, an oldman lived in this hut sitting anxious looking.
 The nature of love girl sing a praying song under a coniferous.

 He falls asleep and his wounds healing miracle by love.
 He said many gratitude thanks and parting smiles.
 The spinster missed her heart and possess a minute death.
 She weaving her heart gifted garland to him with splendid love-smells.

 The nightjar song impressed his love seek, find to fail.
 The red war period started, as his melancholy love.
 He stabed not but earning many love wounds.
 His inner voice of love but fluttering dove!

 He became love-sicker and also think about the bewitching voice.
 Again he searched, his red wounds badly hurt.
 His instinct wishes that met her love-face lastly.
 He brings only thorny's love-blood at shadow night.

 Dews fluttering with his worthy red-blood gently to the heaven.
 He is rescued by the same spinster his heart-venus.
 She takes a letter and his pleasant love-subject written with golden tunes.
 Her tears of love tinkling on, the love-wounds bleeding with joyous!

 She feeds him on the love's last breath of lyric but sad love-melody chill.
 The worthy fairest carved immortalized their love-chapter.
 If you smelled the monumental garland it described the unbelievable love-tale.
 The love-origin pastoral surrounded with red grasses one touch it
    amazingly love-sicker!

The Hurt I Felt When We Broke Up

I never meant to hurt you
That is what he said
I never meant to hurt you
But right to hurt was led
I was led down a path of insecurity and doubt
A path that trampled me until I too wanted out
I wanted us to make it to the end, you and I
I wanted us to both want to cross that finish line.
But I cannot drag you across that waving flag;
I cannot drag you and one day regret I had.
I wanted you to love us,
but you never truly did;
I wished for you to be in love with me,
but that wish was just too big.
So here I am 2 years later wondering what went wrong;
Here I am 2 years later in the midst of a sad love song. 
So while he’s “trying not to hurt me,”
he could’ve tried two years ago. 
He could’ve tried before I decided to let my defenses go.
You never meant to hurt me?  What you think you’d do?
Tell me that you wanted out and I would say, “Me too!”
No, that’s not the way it works
when you hide your true feelings. 
That’s not the way it works
when you don’t know with whom you’re dealing.
I was dating a figure, a cartoon who said what I wanted to hear.
A mix between Santa Clause and Papa Smurf who always brought good cheer!
But spare me the “Ho, ho, hos,” I’d rather hear the truth.
Spare me the “baby, I miss yous” cause I never saw the proof.
You lied to me, you’re a liar because of the stuff you didn’t say.
Because of your two years of lying, today I feel the pain.
So you never meant to hurt me? Ha. That joke’s funny…
Why don’t you go down the street and tell it to that girl, honey!
In the meanwhile, I’m gonna be OK…that’s a matter of fact.
And oh…when you realize that I was the one please don’t come back!
