something about love

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition: 2021

there’s something beautiful about love
not in the family sense, but the “i would walk through fire just to kiss you” sense. you don’t get to choose your family. but you do get to choose the person you love. you aren’t born into it, you find it. you find the person who makes you want to scream off the roof of a building “i am in love with you”.

fallen angel

FREE WRITING


your golden image’s far from fitting
it’s apparent in your grin
the lingering taste of bitter morals 
sit amongst your stinging words

i thought you were enchanting
but love isn’t one to be forgiving
you are my fallen angel darling

the traces of false love i imagined
won’t disappear with only time
the malicious glint that lives in your eyes
hides beneath your deep blue sea

i thought you were enchanting
but love isn’t one to be forgiving
you are...

i cant listen to music 
without hearing you sing 
your voice like a beacon 
that keeps reappearing 
your name in the signs
i drive by every night 
and i can’t let go 
the texts saying you love me 
burn a hole in my phone
but that’s now what you tell her
and i don’t have a place to call home
she sleeps in the bed 
that i once laid my head
and i can see you let go

my (almost) world

FREE WRITING

it’s when i stopped seeing you in blue
i knew i that i moved on 
cause my world stopped revolving around you

i’ll add you to the list 
of the boys that i once missed 
it’s getting longer day by day
but now it’s in the past 

we don’t have any hard feelings
it’s just a love that didn’t last

befallen love

FREE WRITING

whatever was left of our love slipped and split in pieces i tried to pick it up and now i’m bleeding.

still i’m chasing

i remember the night in the rain and the lingering taste of bitter morals how did I keep from breaking? 

slowly sinking

your golden image is far from fitting i could see it in your grin needing love that’s surly fatal that’s ending in betrayal.

Hopeless Romantic (Poem)

FREE WRITING

I like to read trashy romance novels 
Books of different love portrayals
That pile up and topple 
Caught in expectations that only can be fatal

I blame all the writers
Especially Nicholas Sparks
For building up desires 
Of enemies to lovers arcs 

I like to watch reality TV 
With expensive designer clothes
Or mind numbing stupidity 
Where girls end with a rose

Or maybe it was just Titanic
That made me a hopeless romantic
