The human heart continues to beat for 5 seconds even after it is taken out of the body. And for those 5 seconds after my death, my heart will still beat for you.
A human can live without food for 3 weeks, and for 3 days without water. Yet I cannot live without you for even 3 seconds. I need to know that you’re there – You are what keeps me alive when I cannot take another breath.
You have the power to move the oceans,
You can tame tigers and humble lions,
You have the ability to raise mountains,
Your fingertips can rearrange the stars.
The wildfire in your eyes can burn down entire forrests,
The emotion in your soul can make the earth quake.
How would I even dare think you could ever love me?
6 a.m. brewed me deep thoughts
Instead of coffee.
It’s like how it used to be,
Me waking up too numb to feel anything,
or feeling everything all at once.
Tearing my soul apart for
Something I did not want.
Healing takes a long time,
But why does it sometimes feel
Like I was going backwards?
Scrolling through thousands of awkwardly poetic lines of 172 clumsy poems I’ve written over the past few years I can’t help but realise that there are way too many words which I seem to have just worn out. Oh, I feel like I were abusing the letters for writing them down far too often.
Take me up, take me low,
Never here and never whole.
Always there, always bear
In mind that I am where
You might ever thenceforth be.
I shall say this was for thee
Although this is what I need
Since with you I am complete.
I lay on my back
Stare at the celing asking
‘What is humanity?’
What is it that makes
The galaxies spin in an alignment
In continuous eternity for us.
Why is it that may
Still dance to
A melody’s broken pieces.
I ask for I have an appreciation
For other things people have forgotten.
