BETWEEN

In between time zones
In perpetual transition
Caught in between what’s then and now
Suspended in an endless confliction

Stuck in a constant limbo
Always finding myself in in-betweens
No roots to keep me grounded or wings to fly
No one to hold onto by any means

So I’ll just stay suspended in midair
Till someone chooses to pull me down
Because I’m always wanting to be discovered
I’m always waiting to be found

NEW YORK CITY

City slopes and skyline highs
Can’t wait to breathe you in
Live off the energy of your wonderland
Where the wheels never cease to spin

You’ll be my passionate newfound lover
And I’ll be your muse so pretty
How I long to be in your waiting arms
My beloved New York City

MOTHER’S DAY

Happy Mother’s Day
To all the moms out there
To those that have sacrificed so much
With all their tears and pain to bear

But sadly sometimes relationships can’t be fixed
And to this I don’t know what to say
Because all the damage has been done
There’s no reversing the decay

Because as much as we want to fix what we have
Sadly there is no turning back
There’s no repairing all the wasted years
There’s no filling the voids and cracks

FIRE

There’s a shade of fire I see in you
The same shade of fire in me
A color of flame that fiercely glows
That’s burning with intensity

We’ll warm each other up through winter nights
We’ll burn in summer ablaze
Keep each other alive through the dull and trite
Through all the humdrum haze

SUBTLETY

I don’t want the sex
I just want the subtlety
Of a hand held tightly amidst a crowd
Of a hug so tight and snuggly

The way you tuck my hair behind my ear
The way you sneak kisses on my cheek
These might not be the grandest of gestures
But they surely get me weak

Because life and love are in the little things
They’re in the little things you do
And these sweet subtle things you do my love
Are what keep me coming back to you

JADED

A fire in the middle of winter
Snowflakes in the middle of spring
As improbable as having a one true love
As fleeting as the romance of a summer fling

Please change the workings of my mind
Pump new blood into my heart so jaded
Stop me from settling for cold and bitter
Save me from the lonely life that I’ve been slated

MOURN

Just give me a moment to grieve
Just give me a second to mourn
To put the pieces back together
Of my heart so desperately forlorn

Because I can only take so much
Of these empty glimpses of hope
So give me a minute to lament
Just give me a second to mope

But I promise you I’ll be back on my feet
That I will someday be okay
The sun will come shining brightly soon
Amidst all these clouds of gray

WAIT

I’m so exhausted of the wait
Why can’t you just come around
I’ve been lying here in the darkness
Constantly waiting to be found

How much do you want me to suffer?
How many tears do you need me to cry?
They keep saying that you’ll come around
That right timing will bring the right guy

But the truth is I don’t know if you even exist
If you’ll ever find your way to me
And my darling in this excruciating wait
Everyday my heart breaks silently

QUICK FIX

Pieces missing, I come to you broken
Somehow expecting a quick fix
That somehow you’ll know exactly what to do
That your mere presence will do the trick

But I realize my battles are mine to fight
And my emptiness mine to fill
But if I show up crying on your doorstep
Please hold my hand to help the world go still

QUIRKS

The bold features of my face
The mapped out moles on my skin
The hugging curves of my body
The seductive slyness of my grin

The thick arch of my eyebrows
The subtle shine of my hair
The colored tones of my voice
The shades of shadow that I leave bare

The gentle softness of my touch
The way I like to flirt with death
The deep pensiveness of my thoughts
The blatant sarcasm in my breath

All these things I’ve come to love
For these quirks are what make me who I am
And falling in love with these idiosyncrasies
Gives me the freedom to be the best I can
