I Think I’m in Love, But You Don’t Know What Love Is

You tell me that I’m playing hard to get

But warn your friends to keep their distance

We fight for the breakup

And break up for the make up

Or just the drama that accompanies it all

 

Seduced by the thrill of the chase

By the romantic high hopes

By seduction itself

No happy medium of slowing down and moving too fast

 

I tell you that I’m cool with just friends

Or just flirting

But gush to my friends about how happy, yet frustrated you make me

We’re obsessed with the thought of loving each other

And hating each other

And/or the media is our role model

 

You starve me of affection

Until I’m only full of you

You take what I give

Rarely returning what you take

Are we in love with lust

Or in lust with love?

 

It’s all fun until it’s not fun anymore

It’s just a game until somebody gets hurt

It’s just a joke until the party’s over

Infidelity is the culture

And attention is the goal…

But a broken heart is a cry for help

 

The happy ending leads to tragedy

Everyone wants a piece of the broken hearts

But some genuinely do want to put the pieces together

All I wanted was you, but I needed more

Lemon Moonbeams

I should turn the tables

I’ll be the one that got away

Unless you change your mind

While you still have time

You wouldn’t be settling

If you just slowed down

My champion muse

Marathon of passionfruit

Nobody feels like you

 

Love that tastes like scarred diamonds

That takes you on the ride of your life

Is meant to last

I’m coming in first place

According to the pieces of my mind

That lucky for you,

You occupy

I’ll light up your room

And your soul

 

Naughty and nice

Rose water to nourish a crown of thorns

And vice versa

Every phase is full

A lady or a siren

Why can’t I be both?

Read and listen to my stories

To write your songs

I am inspiration when let in

 

Do you want forever?

Be mine

This isn’t a proposition

It’s a blessing

Fate is no coincidence

 

A reincarnation

Of Persephone’s heart

You could be the authentic Adam

To my flourishing Eve

And yet, you’re still doubting me?

Choose your words carefully

Because I promise that I’m better with them

I’ll make you eat your heart out

And eventually, you’ll realize

That I fixed every broken piece of it

Because I care

 

For so long, the goddess in me was missing

But it’s not about lost and/or found

It’s who I am

I believe in you too, by the way

Miracles have a way of standing out in the crowd

And nobody feels like me

Don’t Start Something You Can’t Finish Unless You’re Going to Let Me Have the Last Word

The world is your mattress

Don’t forget to give your heart

A final resting place

Act until it’s not acting anymore

Stop surfing channels

I can ride your tidal waves

If we’re on the same wavelength

Not a phase unless you let it be nothing more

Time spent with me is high quality

Just putting that out there

There’s more to people than their issues

Has anyone told you that before?

Running through minds is my cardio

If you were mine,

I wouldn’t keep you from being you

Just saying

 

I’ve never been in love

Yet, I show and give so much love

Can you imagine how Aphrodite I would be

With the right person?

Guess what?

I’m not dangerous

 

Have you ever upgraded

From yellow to gold?

Not fool’s gold

Real gold

Natural, not forced love

I’m not cheap

I’m free

 

Dance on tables

Jump on unmade beds

Singing lullabies that don’t lead into horror movies

Wishing on stars instead of white noise

Like you used to

 

Stay awake with me

And you’ll have nothing but sweet dreams

I’ll show you love that lasts

Love that stays

Cheaters only cheated themselves

When they lost your love

Treat me how I deserve

And I’ll reciprocate

With unwavering certainty

You’ve been a lot of places

I can take you where you’ve never been

Hold your heart like it’s sacred

Why would I want to break it

When I know exactly how that feels?

Touch you like a miracle

Give your head a rest

Match your passion

With my everything

Ignorance would be reckless

Satisfied

Down

Over and over

If this is love,

Then it’s a dream

That would be heartbreaking

To wake up from

 

Nothing less than the best

Nobody better

Sunkissed souls

Feelings are meant to be felt everywhere

 

Two in one

One in two

The truth can be found

Under or above you

Depends on how you want it

 

So real that it feels like a fantasy

So holy that the devil imagined it

Have you ever been both cared about

And cared for?

When you want it so much

You need it

When you need it so much

You want it

Good gone bad

Bad for you

Good for you

 

So wrong, it’s right

So alive

Worth the wait

Popping cherry planets

Playing with high voltage

The only drug I would ever do is

You

Sexy

Hourglass in the middle of nowhere

Small enough to be swallowed

Oh the joys and sorrows

Of finding your elixir

 

Infatuation runs deep

Love is blind

You desire and then some

I would let you come inside

We’re off the wall

Frantic, eccentric, soft, rough

Don’t go

You’re warm

I’m cold

 

I want it

I need it

I like you

I want you

I need you

I love you

 

Don’t stay the night

Stay forever

I’m ready

I’m sentimental

You have what I’ve been missing

I missed you before I even knew you

 

Be vicious

Be affectionate

I can take it

I crave it

I’m open for you only

Love season

Free-spirited

I can bring you back to life

We are more than our bodies

Your Body on Me

I found myself

Between cloudy sheets in the sky

And cracks in my shell

I embrace the night

With stars in my eyes

Circling my wishing well

 

We’re all talk

No doing

All taking

No giving

All imagining

No fantasy fulfilling

 

I’ve never been crazy in love before

Heart’s never hit the ground this hard

Never dreamed so vividly before

Never had to play all of my cards

But you’ve dealt me a hand

That helps me touch the ceiling

And I’m not forfeiting this endgame

Put your body on me babe

 

You found yourself

Between hopes, dreams,

And cracks in your armor

I can tell you want

A blossoming love

So real and true that your soul shimmers

 

We’re all words

No acting

All passion

No freedom

All lonely

You make me happy

I could make you happy

 

I’m only one realization away

I want to leave my innocence

Under your paper moon

But it’s like you’re a thousand heartbeats away

Rhythm blending in with the crowd

It’s not like you need me…

Am I selfish if all I want is you?

Vibrant Vibes

Oxygen explosions

Sweep me off my feet

Thorny closure serves to teach me

That I was born to make myself happy

First and foremost

 

Diamond raindrops

Caress my face

The space between the wars

Of the  mind and heart

The most authentic form of intimacy

 

Jumbled numbers

Throw me off track

You’re either with me or against me

A guardian angel, a lover, or a flower

Making my garden less lonely

However, I refuse to surrender to pollution

Parasite, don’t kill my vibe

 

Glittering butterflies

Melt my walls of ice

Reminders that I have so much to live for

So much to give

Pain is temporary because inner strength can heal

Time and time again

 

Sweet illusions

Served on the buffet of distractions

Lost myself in the wrong moments

Wounds left open

But no more

There is so much more to me

Than a reality of fantasies

 

Bloodstream lipsticks

Wake up my high tide

Kiss me

Breathe on me

Let’s become one

 

Wildfire skies

Comfort and revive my frozen soul

Hurl the pieces of my shed skin vase

At the fourth wall

Help me completely grow

It’s not enough to feel whole

Because that leaves room for leaks and holes

 

Yellow lights

Encourage confidence in my abilities

Because it waxes and wanes with the moon

And often, I slip off of life’s guiding candle

Like melting wax

Suddenly, stuck in a ditch

Waiting for a sunny day

That isn’t a hologram

 

Spring green

Awaken my dreams

Break my cocoon

Lift my shell

So that I can migrate to paradise

With the birds and angels

 

Blue glow

An all-encompassing, drowning sadness

Tears and breakdowns brimming

Return to my eyes

Others living their wonderland lives

While my happiness is dimming

 

Indigo spirit

Show me the path that leads to home

Because I now realize

That there is a limit

On how much I can handle alone

I can be independent

But I’m not divine

 

Violet imagination

Add power to my weakness

”Only human” doesn’t have to equal

Not destined for greatness

No need to slowly fade like wilting petals

Be ultra

Embrace the universe

 

Pink heartbeats

Give me the strength

To live, to breathe, to believe

To provide my buried anonymous thoughts

With names

Allow me to love and be loved

Like never before

Without hesitation, second choices, or second guessing

 

Desperate coffee

Nowadays, you seem to stop working

When I need to start

”Authority” tells us to drain excess water

”Drain the swamp”

But we’re losing valuable nutrients in the process

Some of us educate and resist

Some of us paint on a smile and decide not to give a shit

Underneath, we’re all exhausted

 

Black stripes

When we descend into darkness,

Support the warrior within each of us

So that we can better support each other

In a starry future

 

Gray stories

Show yourself

Tell your secrets

The truth is needed

Even if it hurts

History is always watching

Let’s make the time

To make the right decisions

Out with the old

In with the new

Out with the dull

In with the vibrant
