Focus On Me


I would hope that you could give up on what you would like to see in me and focus on the real me. It is then you can watch me do me, even though I know that it won’t happen anytime soon. That’s fine for now… I’ll just continue on with my life until your eyes can adjust to what it is that I am doing because I can’t stop living because it’s not within your scope of vision. I wish I could hold your hand right now but you’re just going to have to come and grab it.

Love Matters Line #6: the last line


You have to be up for it.

 

 

See the poem in it’s entirety Love Matter Series

 

Sincerely, Yin and Yang


Whenever you leave,
I’d ask myself, “Where has the time gone?”
It happens frequently
and it puzzles me
how you do what you do
because I always seem to lose things when I’m with you.
Whether it’s my time, love, efforts, or anything else that I can give

It doesn’t matter
since you are a person who always tends to take.
Read into this however you want.

Decipher what’s  love and hate.

By all means,

I invite you to participate.

Sincerely, Yin and Yang Forever

Soul Changer

I don’t know why you looked at me

The way you did,

It was as if you saw something in me

that I couldn’t see in myself.

And I might not ever get the chance to thank you,

But in the occasion of the moment

When your gaze fell upon me,

It moved me.

 

I wanted to see what you had seen.

I wanted to hear what you had thought.

I wondered what compelled you to glance my way?

Me?

A mold of a time so impersonal,

Where I could only count on the one and only…

and I was worth the wrinkle underneath your eye?

 

You got me thinking it would be alright to be a loveable,

Gullible, trustful, optimistic woman of this world.

Because through your eyes I’m only a reflection.

I liked the way you looked at me because

In your eyes I felt so sweet.

Sweet.

That was all I ever needed.

Your eyes were a soul changer for me.

The Deal: Relationship


I don’t want it
but it’s the only thing I know
I’m on my own.
I love to love
and don’t feel like my heart is out of beat.
I have people in my life that I Love and wouldn’t mind taking care of
and it’s those same people, who will take care for me. I know.

I”m blessed.

Yet, my heart is so guarded , just call it Fort Knox.

I believe that there are no crooks can steal this heart of mine.

I do not mind visitors but I’ll decide whether you’ll be my guest. Forever?
I guess I can thank God for that.
I guess His love is something I need to know
before I can love someone else.

I know how to love and how to use it.

I want to share it with someone who is worth it.

which seems impossible to do.

So I’ll sit. chill. and bow my head because,
I’m glad that He didn’t leave me alone and that I’m surrounded me with amazing people….
As I wait. sit. and chill.
Waiting for someone to blow away all my secret intelligence of the world I think I know.
So I’ll wait. sit. chill.
To feel…what’s God’s Deal.

STARS


Just reach for the stars

Since it’s far from anything you know.
Yes, it lies beyond the sky,
up above the world so high,
it’s also where dreams exist.
What’s there to resist?
Your dreams burn so bright
that your eyes are helplessly fixed.
So  do what you must.
Become an engineer!
Build a rocket
and pioneer for the brightest star.
To settle down there.
Why?
So as you sleep
your dreams are always close enough for you to know.
