Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans and a sweater

Ain’t nothing more that can make a heart skip quicker

Acceleration and anticipation in the midst of unavoidable precipitation

A single look and it is complete and utter devastation

A figure of perfection at least to my frontal lobe, completely adsorbed

Skinny jeans and a sweater

With jet black hair that should mere blue underneath these lights

Like something out of a fantasy

Lost in the times you have inspired and guided without being aware

I opened my eyes for the first time and caught a glimpse of you

The unprecedented domino effect that was you

Skinny jeans and a sweater

For once eyes linger elsewhere and not locked on a screen

Engrossed in watching your favorite thing

The level of questions is obscene the torrent of answers that linger around you

Lost in the sight, lost in the image that is of you

Dashing from head to toe

I never believed until my eyes caught sight of you

Skinny jeans and a sweater

Silver SUV in the parking lot that you race along the highway making the heart sway

Now I’m searching for a map to find a way out

Yet still end up getting lost in your presence

Out of sight and out of mind

Not even looking and yet you keep appearing

No longer warranting the urge of disappearing

Skinny jeans and a sweater

Or else navy and black with hints of neon green

You’re the greatest masterpiece I have ever seen

Even if your eyes are usually fixed on the screen.

In another universe

In another universe there would be courage

In another universe you wouldn’t be on my mind

In another universe I would have the courage to try

In another universe there would be a sign or a hint to catch your eye

Not solely as we past each other by, or I hold the door open for you to hear your kind thank you.

In another universe I would ask you a question

In another universe there would be an opportunity to know you

In another universe nine months wouldn’t have gone by without us passing each other by

Even when you’re not there my mind behaves like you are

Near or far, I am at a loss

In another universe you wouldn’t rule yet here I sit pondering why I am a fool

Changed the melody, changed the key, yet all the while your eyes are fixed on your screen

Or doing your usual routine as per, in the evenings even on a valentine’s night

You’re always an unexpected sight to see, a thing of beauty

In another universe I would make a move, even to pass a letter or note, an invitation

But the danger is there and I don’t want to disturb or perturb you in anyway

No matter how much our paths cross from the weights to the elliptical machine

To opposite ends of a swimming pool

Congratulations, I dived in because of you.

In another universe you wouldn’t linger on my mind for close to a year.

In another universe I would be free and have to courage to dismiss you

Instead I find myself counting down the days until you come by

In another universe

Snow White

Snow White

Found myself caught in the headlights

Surrendering logic and reason

So long as you are near

So long as you are here

Starting the ignition

Searching for permission

Just to fulfil this mission

You’re perfect in imperfect ways

In ways I cannot explain

You’re the antidote to everything I held in vain

Through silence and stillness

Here I remain immersed

Snow White

Standing board and tall

From the strength of shoulders down to the tips of your toes

Why did I have to see it all

The black ink crafted into a shining sun

Eyes like the darkest of nights filled with soulful stars

Wait to the age of cliche, where I am Venus and you are Mars

To say I wish I could stay or find some words to say, or have you approach once more

Instead only memories remain, unconditional and forevermore

The potential was there to be a thing to adore

It’s becoming too obvious

Snow White

Standing board and tall

What would be given to follow your path, to bare your joys and your wrath, the sadness and any pain

To endure it all

Your strength and mystery

All things I wish I could know

Snow White

Tonight I saw a sight so clear

Never before and yet I stood tall

Trying to figure out where you came from and why you continue to linger on

In my mind, always nearby

Until you leave and I am left wondering why, I still cannot get you out of my mind

Snow White

The conductor of this peaceful storm

Board shoulders and dark hair

The trace of a black design resembling the sun’s shine

Perfect in Imperfect ways

Whether dressed in navy and black, head inclined and eyes locked on a screen

Or else lost in thought and reminiscing

Why is it always you I end up missing

Snow White

You’re an unforgettable sight

And thought the moments are long gone, never to become anything more

Still I wish in silence

We could become more

As you once mentioned

That left a curious heart on the floor

Snow White

You’re a delight

A perfect imperfection

Taking breath away even with a single glance in a particular direction.

I wish

I wish

I wish hear your voice once more even if it’s just to say hello

I wish to learn from you and the ways that helped you grow

I wish know your thoughts and impressions of the world today

I wish to just be in your company, granted just having you around would be good enough for me

It’s the simplest of things but the hardest, too

How many months have go by, and try as I might, you’re still lingering by

Like a ghost going to and fro, passing by quietly whilst I forget and get lost

I wish to just be in your eyes

I wish I could remove you from my mind, though in truth that would be a lie

I wish I didn’t like you lingering there

I wish I wasn’t so taken by your quizzical expression and dark hair

I wish I could understand why things are this way, time after time, always ending up on the same line, neither afraid or brave enough to take action or do things to make a change

I wish I could just go my own way without being influenced by your ways

I wish just to be numb because in all honesty I am looking for no one

I wish my heart wouldn’t skip

I wish my head wouldn’t spin

I wish I was stronger than to linger on to a ghost that you have now become

I wish I didn’t miss you as I do

I wish I could have had more time with you

I wish I could have been there

I wish there was a single way just to communicate and let each other know it’s okay

I wish I didn’t feel this way

I wish to go back to the very first days when you were but a beautiful stranger that took me by surprise and lead me on to the right way.

Exquisite Influence

Let me breath

The unexpected moments that steal away time, frozen, precious and divine

Tell me how this is to be

The jewel that came to be.

A strange mystery I cannot unseen

This exquisite influence to have over me

From a far like the moon alight in the blackest of skies, illuminated by unseen sunlight

Try as I might it’s fruitless to abandon this dream though never to be

The happiness it brings is worth a thousand fleeting moments of you and me.

Silent and unseen

Just let me breath

Let me deceived in this daydream of make believe

Tell me how it is meant to be

That the unexpected moments arise solely to steal the scene

Today was like a dream

This exquisite influence you have over me

From a far as always like the moon and stars bringing beauty to the darkness of a cold night

So long and rest well

You did far more than well in the silent unseen daydream where you always reign as the king

The jewel that came to be the final piece in a crown

Just let me breath

Until the very end, lost in the rarest of moments where reality feels like a dream and you are all that my eyes can see

What have I become

Lost at sea

Just let me breath

Whether you’re next to me or lingering with quizzical eyes of curiosity

Tell me, how do I forget your face

That makes everything feel displaced

Yet of no bother or trouble at all

Lost count the number of times I have dropped things on the floor

Through learning and becoming a better version of me

A thing that was once impossible to believe

Improving and excelling through silent kindness and care

Thus exquisite influence you have over me

Just let me breath

As I linger here in this unknown land

Your face is the only source of familiarity

Your presence a comfort of sublime mystery

Lost at sea

This exquisite influence you have over me

My mentor and teacher in more ways than one

You were everything I didn’t know I was looking for

How quizzical such things come to be

This exquisite influence you have over me

Lost at sea

But I’m glad it’s because of this exquisite influence you have over me.

Blue

Out of the blue

As I was lost in serenity

A sudden feeling came over me

And brought me back to reality

Eyes opened slowly, completely unawares,

Then from the corner of the eye did I spy you

Lying next to me, eyes closed, lost in serenity too

Never knew such a thing was real nor do I understand its meaning

The wave is pleasant enough

The more I see of you

Out of the blue

There is comfort and peace, a sense of home and tranquility

My brain is betraying me even before I saw you

Just the sense or lingering hint, no sound was made or gestures created

The serenity was there and lingered just for you

Out of the blue

Now I am at a point of not knowing what to do

And yet at the same time there is nothing to do

Let it be and enjoy the serenity that comes from being beside you

Or hearing your voice, but in silence the sentiments are the same

The more I see of you

Or catch a hunch that you are nearby

Appearing out of the blue

Never had I felt more at peace then when lying next to you

Such a possibility is a rarity of a thing

All is tranquil and calm

Out of the blue without any alarm

Silent gratitude given for there is harmony and hope

Even in the briefest moments

You were there

Time after time

Time after time

Moment after moment

Always caught off guard

Always questioning the surprise

And somehow I get lost in your eyes

This could be the start of a demise

Time stands still yet goes on in the background

The sentiments profound

In a crowded place littered with so many faces you saw mine

Not when I was right in front of you, head inclined in the pretence of a distraction

It wasn’t suppose to be like this

Now I’m left astonished at our interactions

Time after time

The number of times seeing you this week

Five in total and still you are there

How long will this be

I didn’t see this coming but now the mind won’t let it be

Even just to see

Lost in analysation

Continuously throwing questions in the air and fate brings the answer in the most unexpected of fashions.

Time after time

It’s a rare thing but common in history

How did we get to this point

Even in the briefest moments of a conversation

It lingers for days after until the next possible situation.

Time after time

I blame the embrace

I blame the sincere look upon your face

I blame the head and heart misbehaving so

Leaving it up to fate and time after time left surprise

Nothing lasts forever it is true, but the thought of it just inspires all the colors blue

Time after time

Lost in my mind and the look in your eyes

From across a crowded room

Always out of the blue

Once a beautiful stranger

Now suddenly I feel in danger

Thoughts and feelings leading the away

This week has been a wonder

And I’m grateful regardless of what will happen next

Unexpected and perfect, the best possible way.
