I want to hold you like sacred space
Like the prayers of the little girl I used to be
before life made miracles seem impossible
I want to kiss you like hopeful
Like the anything I believed in before humanity
taught me how to bleed
Can I just be the need you actually want
The lover that doesn't turn into a memory of regret
I don't want to be a memory,
but I want to be a part of them
I want to be the someone behind your smile
The dancer you share moonlight with
Let's make love the stage our hearts will applaud
at the climax of forever
And we will perform the encore
for the rest of our lives
It's not that I have forgotten you
It's just that when you left & closed the door behind you,
I ripped open my chest
& hid the key beneath my ribcage
That way I could remember how painful it was to love you
And not to go back
Kiss me like summer...
Back when the streets were safe...
Before paper soldiers
and Scarface wanna BEs
littered the block

And when the loneliness sets in
on a power trip about possessing the world,
you may cry for the moment...
But when tomorrow finds you,
so will the opportunity to love someone
who loves you back...
"I may never know how you slipped hope into my back pocket
and convinced it I was worth more than a glimpse
Even though you know I reek of mishaps and mistakes…
worry and worthlessness…
But you embrace my flaws like desperate hands holding flyers
of missing children"

Your touch...makes it impossible not to
And below waist
It's amazing how we teach the sun & moon
We are Ying & Ying...
And we spill...
producing orgasmic galaxies
Your hands translate the Braille on my skin
You read me...
Only to find yourself in the history of my forever
"I am a LIFE REPORTER, but for short, you can simply call me a poet."
