The Power of No Words

It wasn’t the moments that filled the air with dialogue and laughter –

It was the silence.

When the words would stop flowing.

And the tension got higher.

Your eyes piercing into mine.

Hands locked into each other’s embrace.

That is when I saw myself.

In those light brown eyes.

I saw my past. My present. And my future.

And it had always been with you.


Check Mate

You came into my life,

When it was least expected.

And then you left,

As quickly as you came.

Now I am left here –

Wondering if this is all a game.

Exotic Love

Your hair is always frizzy

because you don’t use conditioner.

The brown belt with the black shoes

clearly don’t go.

Eating carrots made you say

you just lost one kilogram.

The look you have on your face

is always so confusing to me.

I say how hard you are to read

as you say you’ve heard that many times before.

You act like a high schooler when we’re in bed.

You don’t tell me how you feel.

You are so behind on all the trends.

But I still can’t help but love the way you

make me laugh –

tell me I’m beautiful –

look at me the way you do –

remind me of emotions so hidden away –

laugh with your hands covering your mouth –

look so helpless all the time –

make me want to call you mine –

smile at everything you see –

listen to me speak of philosophy.

All the things I thought I wanted

you changed it all for me.

Now you are on the other side of the world.


what I would do to tell you how I feel right now.

New Me

Don’t you see?

I am still me.

Even if I do things a little differently.

But if you look deep down inside.

I am still the same person you knew from before.

Just living a life I always wished to know.

Testing the waters of adventure and curiosity.

Spending my time in a foreign sea.

But if you came back to me,

You’d see,

I am the same blonde haired girl that used to live next door.

Sitting, Waiting

It’s always these moments.

The times where the wind blows a little more gently –

Pulling out old memories –

And replacing them with my new life.

I think of you.

As I watch you leave with the overflowing sky line.

I try to forget all that was left behind.

Because it’s easier to pretend it never really happened to begin with.


Days like this bring me back to it all.

The simplicity.

And constant serendipity.

I remember your wild spirit.

How drawn I was to it all.

Things are so different from those times.

All the memories I left behind.

Crashing with the waves of those summer skies.

Do you feel me there when I am so far away?

I have waited many hours.

For my soul to release from my body.

I don’t know where I go from here.

Is this the end for us now?

So out of control.

I am watching from a distance into me.

While watching you see me.

And turn your back away.

Because I am now so far gone.

With no intention to return home.

This is my pre-determined destiny.

Sing my song to all that you meet.

We may be so far gone.

But it will always end with you and me.

Even if it is just our fading memories.
