Let’s Hold Us

If love can make us lie
If lust can make us last
Why should i love you

If desire runs us,
Passion drives us,
Why not just love us?

No! I cant
You’re not loyal,
You’re just local

You talk of loyalty,
Yet I yearn more for trust,
So what then??

I want reality
You look guilty
You talk of trust yet you rust

What more than the past?
Of us holding to it all,
So let’s move forth together

It’s hard though
It was just pressure
Just because of peer

Together we can
I believe in you
I believe in what we have

Let’s live up to it
Let’s make choices today
Let’s make it official

You and I together,
In love As always,
Together we are as one.

Let’s gather
The fruits of love
I will let them know now

Standing by your side,
I pledge my love to you,
With unending passion and trust.

Pause you who read these
That on one selected day
You will find the love of your life

My one day is today,
To take a stand of love,
Taking you as my own.

I wont look down again
You love is bestowed upon me
I don’t wanna loose you

Hold me tight,
As I love you right,
For we are all we got.

I will hold you tight,
Because it’s cold right,
Let’s light our love light.

Our Do Over…

Through time I have come to learn,
That to actually be happy,
I have to be with those I like,
Those who like and appreciate me,
And that’s all that matters.

My mind wanders off
In a dreamy nostalgia I’m left
Of the good old days
Of when you and I were one
Of the times we spent being us
Of the laughs we shared
The memories we created…
Comparing to what we have now…
None of what we had.

The paths we once walked on
Have all grown green.
The seats we once sat on
Have grown cold with the seasons,
The stars we once gazed on,
Shine less bright without you…
All these and more,
Remind me of you.

My heart gets colder these days
With your very absence,
Your presence is all I yearn
To be with you as before
Deep down I ask…
Wondering within myself
Of what happened to us.

Take a chance with me
Forgetting all that happened before
Keeping the moments of before
And with our open hearts
Let’s rebuild us…
To what we were
To what we once had.

Forgive our mistakes,
Let’s build our bridge,
Mending our broken cords,
To do what we did best,
So hold my hand
Let’s take this path again.

Till Such A Time.

At this place always I sit,
For you I have preserved a seat,
Just hoping and waiting anxiously,
For you to walk in and we just sit calmly,
But thats just a tall order for me,
As Im all alone,save for my shadow.
And you are more in me than beside me,
But still glad to have you in me always

Baby…
I write to you because I do need you,
You were and always have been all I wanted,
Even though we are taking different paths,
My heart shall hop and jog in your prints,
My mind still goes to the laughters we had,
The moments when it was just you and I,
All these memories flood my heart,
And my heart cries out as it still yearns for you.

Darling,
The promises we made I shall keep,
The words you whispered I shall remember,
The silent glares we had I have stored them,
Despite the new path that life has pushed us to,
Despite this long distance,
Despite even the resistance ,I shall always call you mine,
As my heart knows no one but you.

Hun…
All the love that burnt in us,
That bright light that always shone in you,
The warm embraces that we shared more often,
How your heart kissed my soul with love…
The calm and peace that was present in your presence,
All that and more that’s still etched in me,
For all of that I say thank you.

With my lonely but hopeful heart I wait,
Maybe all the worries and difficulties wont carry any weight,
For such a time when our paths shall come to meet,
For us to embrace as like we never stopped,
To taste and feel the warmth of your lips again,
Till such a time comes hun…
Just know I love you…
Yes I do.

Joy

Not A Toss…

Happiness is not guaranteed by what you can be able to get just by your abilities…at times it is guaranteed by what you can lose thanks to your abilities.

Finding it and losing it are like two sides of a coin…you flip it and the side you pick is what you have to deal with. Due to that,I choose not to toss the coin…

But I choose to pick my own happiness,To keep it till him and I can’t be identified as separate entities.

I choose you.

ECSTASY

Hold me close,

Embrace me,

Breathe in me,

For I’m yours.
Strum my strings,

Pound my walls,

Break my cover,

To you I surrender.
Sing our song,

Hit that gong,

Feel that resounding beat,

Let’s melt in this heat.
My passion,

Your intensity,

Let’s mash it all up,

For its our ecstasy!

MY BROTHER’S GIRLFRIEND 2


The following day the sun rose wearily 

Its warm rays darkened by the presence of him

My brother, my friend’s boy

Ruthlessly hitting on my door

Threatening to murder it

All in the name of a knock

A streak of sweat,

Pulled my arm back,

A shade of regret,

Pushed my mind blank,

The door gave in,

The gap between my lips went thin.

 In a near slow motion 

My neck refused to hold my head and face

So they obeyed gravity and went falling down 

Now coloured with a hue of pure shame 

I pondered, pensive i thought 

Why did it happen?

Now came along,

A price to pay,

What do I say?

I will be a father,

Should I state further,

How my brother and I,

Differ like ground to sky.

Surprisingly a smile easily formed on his lips

As he prepared his organs of speech

To tell me of the good news 

Of him getting a kid soon

To share his surname with 

To fill our tranquil environment 

With vibrant sweet noise 
I couldn’t help but congratulate

Deep inside a heated debate 

What if the unborn

Has staggered speech 

Has bow legs 

 A receding hairline 

And a short tallness? 

It then would be clear 

My athlete was on the finish line 

While my brother’s was on the mark 

Set to run an already won race

The big questions and answers 

Would be direct to one person

My Brother’s girlfriend

♉ TAURUS

Hey ♌ Leo…

Today I write to you,

I’m a Taurus ♉…

I will love you in silence,

Show it through my actions,

Express it in my words,

But will be afraid,

To tell it to you,

For the fear of rejection lingers,

So I shall hope,

That between the pages of my mind,

Between the lines of my writing,

In the calmness of my solitude,

There you shall find yourself,

For that’s where I keep you,

Hiding you,

Wanting you only for me,

For being the Bull…

I protect my own,

And you are my own.
Yours in love,

     ♉ Taurus the Bull.

MY BROTHER’S GIRLFRIEND 1


I have a bother,I am his brother 

He has a girl, She is my friend 

My dad was not much hardworking

As only we won the procreation marathon 

And got to see the sun staring warmly

She smiles at me

I smile back

At the table she winks

Or is it exaggerated blinks

But she is forbidden

Perhaps adding flavour to the temptation
Cecilia, as her name goes

Visits frequently when brother is gone 

Watches me straining muscles in the farm

Drops her pot to watch me torture the earth

When she realises am watching 

She walks seductively 

So that my lusty eyes confirm shaking behind
How much longer?

My walls are falling

Her lips are calling

The desire grows stronger

She bites her lips

Closer..she brings her hips
Then one night, just one night 

She came asking for excess salt

That night the handshake was longer

Something sweet was in the air

And behind her i saw a great future
Then she stopped

The salt dropped

Over she bent

Up my lust went

The motion is slowed

My loyalty overshadowed
Like Jason Derulo screams 

She wanted to want me

And she did her all to be next to me

Whatever happened, as always said

Is untold of and its better stated as history

But of the next morning

As brother came knocking

A rush of guilt

Equipped with regret

Coloured with shame

……………………………

DEJAVU

“`The dim light of the candle, when swallowed by darkness

Effaces the memento lying  in the museum of our past.

Enveloped by darkness, our past lays entombed;

Future unraveled, but the paths are bleak.
When the heart rustle;

My ears act deaf

My eyes turn blind

To the reality of the man you are.
We sink deep into jeopardy on the same bed of yesterday

I fall prey once again to the same man with a barren heart.

The nights wont grow old

Our hearts will grow cold.
Laments are in rehersal;

Tomorrow is dejavu, 

We have been here before

This was but a sequel?
Here lies the woman I used love

Your lips will read the epitaph loudly so the world will understand;

My soul died countless times in the palms of the man I loved.“`

UNTITLED

*Joy*

Tonight is all about you

Tonight is my night

I wanna make it our night
Lights on for me to see you

Lights out for me to feel you

Any n both works well
So come forth lets hush

You n I the greatest Secret

You n I forever Sweet
 *Secret Marims*

The love scent

Together we were meant 

Missionary or bent? 

Non you say we can’t. 
Three or four? 

Mind even oral? 

Fast or slow? 

Nothing you ask what for. 
It’s the story untold

When together there should be no cold

As we let future unfold

A baby we can mould.
