Age is naught but a mortal frame
Yet, your spirit it cannot tame
Whence your heart does roar
With a power unmatched by heavenly flame.
Nye upon the ground your spirit does race
Perchance we find it among those who keep pace
With the adventures of your marvelous lore
Wherein we gather by a love threaded from iron lace.
Thine eyes of wisdom sparkle and wink
Wherefore do they sink?
By mine love I shall make your spirit soar,
Whence thine heart is mine by a divine link.
A smile – yay! – yours the glory of the world
Far away, its warmth for which I have purled
But even now I feel thine embrace more and more
By which I smile because mine lips have curled!
I finish this plea here
Though a stain upon my cheek – a tear!
Makes me hasten for the door
So I may be with you, my dear!
Birth is better to celebrate than death, so here is to you, G. We’ll miss you~
I could scratch words into a tree,
but it would not withstand time’s disease.
I could buy your heart’s desire
but my pockets are empty like the gesture.
I could pretend that Valentine’s day is meaningful
but, love, you strum my heart everyday.
I can’t sing and you won’t dance,
so here’s my remedy, my best chance:
Baby I’ve been searching
like everybody else
Can’t say nothing
different about myself
Sometimes I’m an angel
And sometimes I’m cruel
But when it comes to love
I’m just another fool.*
A fool that believed that
there was no one for me,
until I met you,
But I couldn’t see how
happy I could be,
Until I met you.**
Where did I go wrong before you
Well, it seems like I was lost
You showed me how to do things right
I’m so glad that now you’re mine***
I see the best of me inside your eyes
You make me smile
You make me dance,
Just the thought of you can drive me wild****
Oh I adore the way you carry yourself
With the grace of a thousand angels overhead
I love the way the galaxy starts to melt
When we become one*****
And I’m melting in your eyes
Like my first time that I caught fire
Just stay with me lay with me******
Stay as long as you need,
Love is forever
Your forever is all that I need
Can’t promise that
things won’t be broken
But I swear that I will never leave
Please stay forever with me.*******
V-day is a spectacle I think we can honestly do without, but love is not. It essentially has become commercialism versus the intangible. It’s never easy to express love. The idea for this post came about because of my special someone’s love for music as well as my own. I hope you enjoy and remember what love truly is. (P.S. I had the brilliant idea of putting the words into cascading hearts buuut thanks to word press automatically reconfiguring my text that didn’t happen).

Rip the irises forth
bleeding blue and green
spilling, swirling, congealing.
Drowning, barricading with
excuses, fears, confusion
a blind one-way lens
froth with entropy, humanity erupting
caustic to a safe prison,
burning, eroding, melting
enveloped in balanced armor
a half’s overture of tranquility
adoration, warmth, contentment
a needle of transcendence
to stitch veins of reality.
