I understand from observation that love is never an easy journey.
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
I feel the heat of the bond that ties us together.
We’re radiant, just like the sun and its nuclear reactions.
Our love is like a chemical fusion.
Something scientists would want to dissect, reproduce and put back together.
I like it when our hands are together.
I like making you aware of that.
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?
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.
That was all I ever needed.
Your eyes were a soul changer for me.

“It’s Trina, right? Hi I’m Cole. I would love to have you as a roommate and as a potential friend. If you accept this invitation then there is something that you have to know. It’s the number 1 rule. We cannot be more than friends. I don’t want live in a miserable state for the entirety of this lease because things didn’t work out. Cool?” I’m going through this moment, our origin, over and over again right now because were in this type of situation; the type of situation where he’s in between my thighs and I’m looking up at him.

Just for a moment you’ll want me/
flaunt me/ and forever and ever
just taunt me/ saying that you’ll love me /
but when we’re in town I’m just a friend/
pending/ whether if we’re really in love/ or just maybe
you want me just because…..
Ever been In a relationship or thought you were or hoped that “this” was real?
That is what this is about.
I want you to see what these years have done for me
I have nothing to show for it.
I can only show you who I am.
I can only tell you about my plans.
I can only describe both my successes and failures.
You want something more tangible from me and
I Don’t have much to show for it.
I may not have a billion or two of anything.
Or have a million friends on FB, #true,
I have people who I love.
I have a reason to do my best.
You want proof of how I’m living…
Surrounded by people who love and care for me,
Is what I have show for my existence.
(WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SHOW?)
I never not wanted your love.
I wanted your hugs.
I wanted your feel.
I never not wanted your touch.
I never wanted to cry.
I wanted to walk down the isle.
I wanted to soar.
I never wanted to crash.
I never wanted to be pitied.
I never wanted to be a bondage.
I never wanted to become Jane Doe.
I never wanted to just leave and go.
But being with you…
Well, I’ll never……
