Will You Wait For Me?

new_world_by_ryky-dcnbmdw

When I need a moment to recover

Will you wait, for my return

So I can take your breath away

Yet again?

 

Loving something else does not mean

I love you any less

I can love you and love being alone

All at the same time.

 

Perhaps you enjoy glancing at my words

Just as much – if not more –

Than how I enjoy the glare in your eyes

When you soak it all in.

 

I promise my intention is not to leave

Rather, it is to give you the best version of myself

A version that gives value and inspiration

As much as you do.

A poem for all my readers. I’m back from taking a small break; I hope everyone is alright 🙂 . Through the coming weeks, I will be exploring the current shift I have been experiencing in my thought process. All in writing, the only way I know how.

Touch.

A sense of longing

Contact took an eternity,

The virtual equivalent

Of  locking lips

With the sky.

Idea(s)

Nothing better

Than working hard to

Fish from the grace pool

Reeling in an idea

Tweaking it on the finer ends

Eventually bringing it into existence.

Alone #Revisited

Say hello

To a persistent dichotomy,

Feeling alone

When the room is crowded.

Darkness is persistent

Like clouds over the sun,

Minor gripe,

Because like clouds

That darkness

Will eventually

Move.

Divided #Revisited

Many give up; many succeed,

All that remains is deciding

Which part of the spectrum

You’ll feed.

Mind.

Emotions strike the match,

Fueling passionate poetry

Adding much-needed fluidity,

To the ink-slinging.

 

Personalizing cartography;

The map to my mind

Is designed

Through my writing.

Irresistible, She Is.

Another verse to add to the Poetry, To Me series. What can I say; I love poetry.

 

**************

 

Highly irresistible,

Permeating your visuals,

An unfailing presence;

The very essence

Of her ultra-magnetic aesthetic.

Laughable,

If not lamentable

That he takes pride

In being the obstacle,

That blocks the light

At the end of the tunnel.

“I love you”

Cut to

“Love you”

You start to wonder

If it’s still true.
