Chance Encounter

I watched her from afar,
her hair was made of gold,
it shined like a bright star,
and stole my hearts control.

He watched me from afar,
my hair was such a mess.
I tried to hide my scars,
strolled though I needed rest.

I fell under her spell,
her essence left a mark.
Much more than a fine shell,
she held an inner spark.

I felt so insecure,
by what his eyes must see.
Tried hard to feel assured,
let go and “Let it be.”

At last, I took a step,
guided by destiny.
Hoping she could be swept,
by my pure honesty.

My heartbeat seemed to grow,
as he slowly came near.
But with the first hello,
our souls traversed through years.

Flooded by memories,
of times that had stood still.
Skipping through reveries,
and climbing steep dark hills.

While holding a tight stare,
all else soon disappeared.
Nothing was ever there,
everything started here.

Inhaling each breath you exhale,
knowing our love could never fail.
A part of me lives in your eyes,
your presence makes my spirit fly.

We met each other magically,
to change our lives so drastically.
Enhanced by our diversity,
our love extends eternally.

Swimming through life, collecting facts,
while gaining proof that pile in stacks.
Flying in our own hourglass,
forming fond memories as they pass.

Feeling you there all day and night
allows me to shine a bright light.
My constant person, through all time,
a best friend, spouse, partner in crime.

Another anniversary
brings warm and happy melodies.
A perfect love, our hearts combined,
we walk through time, our hands entwined.

Our bond, difficult to describe,
a cure for love that god prescribed.
Euphoric bliss, stronger each day,
enhancing life in every way.

Second chance

I get confused, sometimes lost,
mixed feelings anchored inside.
Negative frequently tossed,
positive most often hides.

Emotions make me afraid
of all I hide deep within.
Cutting swift, like razor blades,
exposing my self-claimed sins.

Feels so nice to be on earth,
after escaping pure hell.
Also sweet to refind love
after hope tumbled and fell.

Sang a song opened ears heard,
lit the sky, moon, and the stars.
Flew so high, became a bird,
landed swiftly with great charm.

Life became sweet and sincere,
fed on love so pure and true.
Beautiful when visions clear,
since my eyes untangled views.

If fear ever comes for me
I will conquer it again.
Holding ease, embracing peace
inner light grows to extend.

Eternal Sunshine

Erase your presence from my mind,
your smile, your laugh, frustrated sighs,
the way your glance made me feel high,
worn memories that made me cry.

Erase the promises you made,
such heartfelt words you soon betrayed,
rough arguments with tear cascades,
synchronized breaths we shared embraced.

Erase your lingered scent from me,
along with visions I still see,
remove the days that made us “we”,
so my heartache can find some ease.

Erase your love in every sense,
but true love always finds defense,
protective force is so immense,
it comes back growing more intense.

In a vast and endless plain,
infinite as the blue sky,
lets remove imposed restrain,
allow our free souls to fly.

In an ocean dense and wide,
wider than the universe,
we create the strongest boat
so our souls can reassert.

Darkest black colored plateau,
made so dark it almost shines,
our hearts paint a loving home,
chalky white and well refined.

Letting joy fuel our drive,
end the night, avoiding time.
We will skip, then jump and dive,
dancing to loud inner chimes.

Twinkling like a bright jewel,
nothing can obstruct our view.
Build a world made of our rules,
formed to please both me and you.

As we shimmer more than stars,
winded lovers become one.
Felt devotion near and far,
sleeping soundly with the sun.

Be my prized guest,
come stroll with me,
on a dream quest,
magic journey.

Our hands will plant,
so wishes grant,

We will have fun
without a fear,
happily run,
laugh till eyes tear.

We will then walk
around the world,
have diverse talks
till our minds twirl.

Embrace all joys,
retaining peace,
as we enjoy
feeling so free.

Let’s hope our light
can sprout and grow,
a future bright
where auras glow.

We can unite
our souls as one,
eclipse at night
melts with the sun.

Create a dome
of priceless worth,
a valued home,
heaven on earth.

Love is like a tiny spec, in a puffed cloud,
an awakening faith with a silent vow.
It’s a paused drop of peace, that awaits a fall,
or bells from a distance that answer when called.

Love will move you inside, and make you want more,
an intrusive event that clutches your core.
It lifts you up high, so you’re floating around,
then abruptly stops, so all hopes hit the ground.

Love hurts and it burns, flows lava through your veins,
builds false illusions, to then laugh at your pain.
It flutters you quickly, to destiny’s edge,
then brings you right back with an unspoken pledge.

Love is an ember, that flickers and fades,
it is misted by rain and becomes a stain.
A destroyer of sense, that dissolves all wit,
yet all drown in desires to return to it.

Love is infinite light, felt inside the chest,
a soft soothing touch that can pass any test.
It’s the “maybe in time”, that chases each goal,
adored preservation that sprouts in all souls.

Love is felt throughout, and at times can be seen,
it’s the dark, the light, and the gray in between.
Eternally travels, through the universe,
until it lands on earth to cure all dire thirst.
