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.

I see a warped world
inside of your eyes
I wipe my own tears
before you could cry
I lose my breath
before you can sigh
I smile when I see
yours slowly arise

I split myself
divided in two
I catch your head
hold it high for you
I clear the ugly
from all of your views
I transform lies
and make them all true

I follow you
just like a shadow
I humble you
when you act shallow
I love you through
your highs and then lows
I fuel your heart
when it beats too slow

I kiss your soul
inhale it at sight
I soothe your thoughts
hold on to them tight
I cover you
and emit pure light
I merge with you
till we both shine bright

– Grace Y. Estevez-Reddy


Extending your hand,
when I was alone,
you held me so tight,
then swallowed me whole.

I laid in your heart,
I made it my home,
I lit a bright candle,
then watched as it glowed.

You traveled through space,
navigating time.
Your life was my movie,
I laughed at your crimes.

I tugged at your heart,
whispered all you felt,
igniting your sparks,
the candle then melts.

Lived your adventure,
I peeked through your eyes.
Till one sparkling day,
I tugged at your side.

Exposing deep thoughts,
we laughed till we cried.
We clutched to each other
made life our fun ride.

Apart we dissolve,
entwined we are solid.
Your chest my firm pillow
provides my tears solace.

Form a fairyland
where we can fly free,
wherever we go,

always glow with me.

Inner love

A lonely dove
looking for love,
took a short break
for her own sake

She looked inside
and found some pride,
feeling a shove
she flew above.

She felt awake
finding a lake,
her wings were wide,
oh, what a ride!

She saw her form
and felt so warm,
her glide was fast
in love at last.

Attention came,
found her twin flame,
flew by her side
their hearts now tied.

She did not ask
but found her task,
true love within
always brings wins

– Grace Y. Estevez-Reddy


Your fingers strum my feelings,
pressing down like piano keys,
every note forms a new tune
stroking thoughtless melodies

Your mind an endless chess game,
strategizing every move,
fumbling through my deep thoughts,
provokes me to self-improve.

Your chest is my soft pillow
that provides protective warmth,
safety shield that offers peace,
molding my dreams as they form.

Your words all sound like music,
offer my ears sheer delight,
lyrics make my spirit wander,
unmask my eyes to insight.

My dull heart reaches the sky
while engaging with your soul,
floating swiftly like paired hawks,
for the first time feeling whole.

Our wants forever fulfilled,
a deep love that never hides,
Co-creating fated futures,
where our lives can coincide
