"Put something silly in the world that ain't been there before." - Shel Silverstein

For so many moments within the hours
of this night our eyes refuse to end
I find myself bewildered by the tired sight of you
Shocked that the puzzle piece I’ve been searching for
Is just one body away.
And my breath is soaking up your existence
through the slender trophies you slip to me
in the seconds when our fingers touch
when you prove that you are here.
And our lips would be distant without the words
I weave through anecdotes to impress you,
and your teeth are grinning around the replies
I cling to with cold hands.
These conversations are more intimate than kisses
And I can feel them more than hands
And we’ve set this table with flat or silverware
that we choose to become
empty plates and fitting spoons
lying in wait of what comes next
with bated breath and shallow thoughts
floating at the surface of the deepness
of the hours I’m with you.

The key to happiness is always looking down the path of goodness. -Teresa S. Livi
Don't Cry Over Someone That Won't Cry Over You

No Guy Is Worth Your Tears & When You Find The One That Is He Won't Make You Cry

If You Really Love Something Set It Free.
If It Comes Back It's Yours, If Not It Wasn't Meant To Be

Some Day You'll Cry For Me Like I Cried For You,
Some Day You'll Miss Me Like I Missed You,
Some Day You'll Need Me Like I Needed You,
Some Day You'll Love Me But I Won't Love You

Time will make you forget me but time will make me love you more than before.

If I never met you, I wouldn't like you. If I didn't like you I wouldn't love you.
If I didn't love you I wouldn't miss you, but I did, I do and I will.

My heart longs for you, my soul dies for you,
my eyes cry for you, my empty arms reach out for you.

Forget who hurt you yesterday,
But don't forget who loves you tenderly today.

Love can make you happy but often times it hurts,
but love is only special when you give it to who its worth.

Boyfriends come and go, but friends are forever.

The hardest part of loving someone is knowing when to let go,
and knowing when to say goodbye.

No pleassure, no expressions just an illusion of what should of but wasnt.

I hate you for not letting me have you.

Forget the times he walked by, Forget the times he made you cry,
Forget the times he spoke your name, Remember now your not the same.
Forget the times he held your hand, Forget the sweet things if you can,
Forget the times & Don't pretend, Remember now he's just your friend.

The day you finally decide to love me will be the day
after the day I have given up on chasing you

I hate to see the one I love happy with somebody
but I surely hate it more to see the one I love unhappy with me...

I had a dream and it was about you ...
I smiled and recalled the memories we had ...
then I noticed a tear fell from my eyes ... you know why?
Coz in my dream you kissed me and said goodbye ...

This is a beautiful poem. I can totally relate to this poem. It is a great poem.

This is amazing. I love the way it all seems to tie together in a big loop without seeming forced. It effortlessly combines metaphoric aspects with beautiful literal ones so that neither side becomes too overpowering. This author demonstrates tons of potential.
