1. NaPoWriMo 2014: My Love Has Gone Far-Flung and Flown Away to a Forever Place

    I would wrap myself in your embrace
    and fall with you to worlds unknown;
    and wake by daylight to that face
    in which the light of love hath shone,

    and restless fingers softly trace
    over your flesh and blood and bone,
    unhesitating, just in case
    you need to know you’re not alone.

    Know I would lie here in this space
    until the universe has flown
    apart, the stars begun to chase
    their end; and yet I remain prone,

    silent in my belonging-place
    (here by your side), searching my own
    heart for that which needs be effaced,
    and hoping that I might atone

    for every sin that hath defaced
    a love that was not clearly shown.
    WIth sorrow-sounds my words are laced
    in solemn, melancholy tone.

    But love, I know, is not a race:
    in it, the seeds of trust are sown.
    We build ourselves a solid base,
    somewhere that we can call our home

    and that can never be replaced.
    And though it may be rapid-grown,
    we’ll take it at our own sweet pace;
    we’ll reach a love that’s little known.

     

  2. NaPoWriMo 2014: ‘Tis this, my love, I want to say (I’ll love you ‘til my dying day) [4/30]

    'Tis this, my love, I want to say,
    in my spun words, this simple art:
    I’ll love you ‘til my dying day.

    This message I wish to convey,
    for should we ever fall apart
    'tis this, my love, I want to say:

    My love for you grows more each day,
    unceasing since we had our start;
    I’ll love you ‘til my dying day.

    When I see you, smiling and gay,
    or catch sight of you from afar,
    'tis this, my love, I want to say:

    Happiness fills me every way
    I know; with you, it isn’t hard.
    I’ll love you ‘til my dying day

    and shall stay with you, if I may,
    for as long as you’ll have my heart.
    'Tis this, my love, I want to say.
    (I’ll love you ‘til my dying day.)

     

  3. NaPoWriMo 2014: My love, you seem so far away. [3/30]

    My love, you seem so far away,
    flown over distant, sunlit clouds.
    (My heart breaks when I cannot stay.)

    I can traverse only by day
    roads I have walked in darkness shroud.
    My love, you seem so far away.

    My world is cast in shades of grey.
    I cannot say these words aloud.
    (My heart breaks when I cannot stay.)

    You have become my only ray
    of light where sorrow doth abound.
    My love, you seem so far away.

    Would that I could be just as gay
    though our actions are unallowed.
    (My heart breaks when I cannot stay.)

    My only wish is that I may
    lie with you, and be safe and sound.
    My love, you seem so far away.
    (My heart breaks when I cannot stay.)

  5. NaPoWriMo 2014: write to quote [1/30]

    There is nothing that controls our thoughts more than what we think we see, which we label ‘we.’

    - from “If a Garden of Numbers” by Cole Swensen

    and I can’t let them go
    when those lies come around
    the dark thoughts in my head
    confusing what I know

    when those lies come around
    and I worry so much
    confusing what I know
    in my head, in my heart

    and I worry so much
    wonder if you love me
    in my head, in my heart
    wonder what have I done

    wonder if you love me
    since I know that you’ll leave
    wonder what have I done
    since I’m too much to bear

    since I know that you’ll leave
    because where have you gone
    since I’m too much to bear
    with my mind running wild

    because where have you gone
    if you’re not here with me
    with my mind running wild
    and I’m always so scared

    if you’re not here with me
    I am always so worried
    and I’m always so scared
    and it’s so hard on you

    I am always so worried
    and I’m selfish at best
    and it’s so hard on you
    and I know you want peace

    and I’m selfish at best
    but I want to be better
    and I know you want peace
    and I want to be good

    but I want to be better
    when they start rolling in
    and I want to be good
    but I can’t make them stop

    when they start rolling in
    the dark thoughts in my head
    but I can’t make them stop
    and I can’t let them go

     

  6. Promises

    There’s a new feeling in my heart
    Rises inside my chest today
    Born from tears shed in the dark
    Bodies that can’t be kept apart

    And so we’ll start
    Anew, again
    As lovers, confidantes, as friends
    To give each other happiness
    To love them well, and nothing less

    So take it slow; and let it grow
    So that we trust, so that we know
    The love we try so hard to show

    I want to be better for you; and you’ll be good to me
    And so hold onto this, cuz I believe that love can conquer all

     

  7. Between Our Sheets

    I want all of you next to me
    to burn me with your scorching touch;
    so pull me down between our sheets.

    Don’t stop if I say it’s too much:
    Your fingers dug into my hips
    to burn me with your scorching touch.

    And bite into my reddened lips,
    your tongue dancing across my skin,
    your fingers dug into my hips.

    And here and now, my life will end.
    I swear it, so don’t ever stop,
    your tongue dancing across my skin.

    Every moment the chance is sought
    to take my body to new heights.
    (I swear it, so don’t ever stop.)

    You touch me and the need ignites:
    I want all of you next to me
    to take my body to new heights;
    so pull me down between our sheets.

     

  8. An Angel Gazes Upon A Rose

    (to the tune of Safe and Sound by Taylor Swift)

    I can see the smile reaching to your eyes as they glitter and shine and glow
    And I can see them dancing in the light
    Why can’t it just always be me and you alone?
    Cuz I just want you in my arms tonight

    So come lie down and hold me in the dark
    The only sound the beating of your heart
    Now that I’ve found you my love it’s here we start

    You don’t ever have to worry, darling, you are not alone
    You know I’m always right here by your side
    Never felt this thing before
    Love so gentle and so bright
    So right

    So let me fall with you in endless time
    And give you all; I’m yours, so please be mine
    And like the sun, brighter still our love will shine

    Let me be your only flower and you be my guardian angel
    Fall from above and show me true love
    Let me be your flower and you be my angel fallen
    I’ve fallen

    So close your eyes
    Say you’ll be mine
    Let our love shine brighter than the stars up high

    Rolling in the dark with your hands on my skin
    Can’t tell us apart: where one starts or begins
    Bleeding into one, like the far horizon
    Falling fast in love deeper than the ocean

    I will love you always; I’ll love you forever
    For eternity: always and forever

     

  9. You Make Me Fall For You

    (to the tune of Landfill by Daughter)

    When did you steal my heart? How did you find your way inside me
    Grasping in the cold dark and yet somehow responding to your touch
    A sudden realization; it’s like a light just went off in my head
    And so I paid attention and listened close to everything you said

    First you weren’t there; at first I was barely even aware
    Then I saw your eyes, saw you always standing by my side
    I hear it in your sighs and in the softest voice saved just for me
    Still I can’t believe maybe this is how it’s meant to be

    Cuz it’s ridiculous when you’re touching me and I start to blush
    And my blood starts to rush when our fingers brush
    And my heart won’t hush (this beating)

    So come lie next to me; let our bodies lace and intertwine
    We won’t go to sleep and our breaths will fall as one with time
    And keep me up all night trading laughs and words and gentle smiles
    Brighter than the moonlight; thought you said you’d only stay a while

    So is this what you do? How you make the girls fall in love with you
    And this is what you do: you make me fall for you
    (There’s nothing I can do)
    Cuz I think I want you; there’s nothing I can do

    And this I think is true: think I may be falling in love with you
    And this is what you do: you make me fall for you
    (This I know is true)
    There’s nothing I can do
    You make me fall for you

     

  10. You Make Me Feel Alive

    (to the tune of Same Old War by Our Last Night)

    I wake up from the same old dream
    And just barely hold back a scream
    Wishing the nightmare was gone
    And that I wasn’t so alone

    And wishing as I lie awake
    That someday you would come my way
    This bed’s been empty too long
    For too long, it’s been too long

    And I know if I tried you would just say no
    And that I need to let it go

    But I can’t escape this feeling
    It rises inside on its own
    Every night
    It sets my soul alight

    I fall so fast and I fall hard
    With each time catching me off guard
    Don’t know when my judgment slips
    But then somewhere my heart flips

    There’s nothing that can be done
    My mind has me too far gone
    I want my name on your lips
    And your hands on my hips

    My heart is always so full of you
    And you don’t even have a clue

    Can you even see what it does to me
    I look at you and hide the pain
    With a smile
    You make me want to die

    Just one soft embrace and put your arms around me
    Your hands on my waist and let your love surround me

    Let us here remain and let it be still my heart
    Give in to this fate, let all the walls fall apart

    So what do you say? Take me away
    We’ll shut our eyes and
    Throw it all to the skies
    You make me feel alive

    So what do you say?
    You’ll take me away
    And we’ll shut our eyes
    Throw it to the skies

    So what do you say?
    You’ll take me away
    Make me feel alive
    Make me feel alive
