Beautiful is Forever

Beautiful is forever
That’s why I’ll never forget you
That’s why I cannot see past the endless blue
And the sun seems so out of reach

That’s why I couldn’t stop looking at you
And I’ll never forget the feeling you gave me
The first time we met
Like you’d always been with me

But just because we never kissed
We never hugged
We never made love
Your presence still swarms me and all that I do 

I can let go
But time wont let go of me
When love is beautiful
And beautiful is forever
And each time I look into the ocean and the sun is out, I think of you

The XX "Shelter"

'HWY 17' Dream

It happened so softly
A kiss that has melted into reality
And broken free of dreams

Reached across with mellow music
Pulling us ear to ear
Nothing was forsaken
Just the time that got away

Lovers only meet so briefly
Life becomes a treat so sweetly
When hearts find warmth in lips

It takes a chance and pinch of trust
A dash of fate and cup of lust
These ingredients are a few to find
The next time love is a long long line

Sometimes people meet again
And love can spring anew
These once in a lifetime opportunities
Will happen oh so few

So wear your heart on your sleeve
Leave your armor on the floor
Love is a strange and ruthless
And will take only naked souls

Porcelain Raft "Drifting In & Out"

Black and Blue

You left me black and blue
You left sunshine on my bed when we slept in ‘til noon
You left me warm embraces on cold streets
Tight grips and locked lips on the dance floor
A hand to hold
Relaxing on the beach
Hot tub and lounging by the pool
You left me cozy theater seats combined to make one
A kiss to make it all better
When these lonely nights return
But you left me black and blue
And now that’s all that I think of, when I think of you

About Woe

Words are our outright melody and no one else is going to play the songs you feel but yourself. Let me be more esoteric....just kidding. You may ask when reading my poetry, why do I use metaphors so often? After thinking that through, I honestly don't know why. My guess would be that language, though freeing, can also be restrictive. Especially in terms of expressing ourselves in attempt to understand ourselves. I, personally, get stuck in gears sometimes and I like to expand and break through traditional understanding of the concept at hand. I like to read what I'm feeling in different forms, and see if the language can lossen up more.
