Make Room for Poetry

love talaga

Rehash

You’ve changed your nose.

It looks good, I’m not gonna lie.

You wear better clothes,

You’ve found your style.

And for a while, I forget why I ever left.

But you open your mouth

And your stories are a broken record

Of mistakes you cannot move from.

And then I remember

Beneath the beauty and bluster

Is the same you.

Fixing an Unbroken Heart

I tried fixing your heart

and you let me.

Out of kindness, I suppose.

Who knows?

But upon careful examination,

My unfavorable conclusion

Is that your heart’s not broken.

It just doesn’t beat for me.

Shall We Begin This?

You’re the almost to my maybe

The missed boat to my open sea

The one risk I haven’t had the chance to take

The best decision I have yet to make.

Timing can ruin even the best songs

One misstep can lead to all sorts of wrongs

But what’s a song if it’s not sung?

And what is us if we haven’t even begun?

Your Face is a Poem

Your face is a poem.

With eyes that dance to a meter,

and lips that speak in rhyme.

I sometimes understand you.

But mostly, I find you open to interpretation.

That is your secret,

and I am endlessly fascinated.

Unraveled

red-thread

I am a wound ball of string, but with your slightest touch,

I fall and unravel.

A single slip and I am back to untangling

the mess that you make of my heart.

Fictional

It was the same road,

But a different direction.

It was the same words,

But a different intention.

When I look back

I find myself in contention

If all that ever was

my mind’s own creation.
