Purpose

Am I your dream?

Or only the person you wake up to?

Am I the destination?

Or the journey you had to go through?

 

Am I your reason to cry?

Or the just the shoulder to cry on?

Am I your sacred secret?

Or the trophy you show to everyone?

 

Did you wait for me?

Or did I just show up in the right moment?

When you’re heart was vulnerable

And it was ready to be easily stolen?

 

Did you fight for me?

Would you take me for granted?

Do you have a scar for me?

To guide you to me when you’re stranded

 

We as humans tend to forget

Victories should never come cheap

I’ve lost some of me to find you

You’ll never smile until you weep

 

Am I your mountain?

The epiphany of blood, sweat and tears

Am I truly worth it?

Standing up to all that you love and fear?

 

Because you are my purpose

You are the only fate I choose

The leap of faith I take blindly

Having you is having something to lose

Wonderful Illusion

I run to you
You turn out to be a mirage
I stare in confusion
Were you ever true?
Did I make you up?
Are you a wonderful illusion?
I touch your hand
There is no warmth
Just static electricity
I think I understand
You are physically gone
But within me you live for eternity
I kiss your lips
You vanish into thin air
Another daydream
I kiss your fingertips
You stay a second longer
You know how much that means
Are you a ghost?
Is this your restless soul?
Is it comfort you seek?
Do you feel lost?
Come sit by me
There is peace in words we don’t speak
I can feel you around me
I foolishly promise you
Everything is going to be fine
You have found me
You are never forgotten
My heart will always be your shrine

Insomnia

Sleep has been evading me
Lying on a strange bed in a strange room
The pillows are persuading me
But there’s no comfort here without you
 
I restlessly toss and turn
My mind is perceiving the bed as steel
With nails and fire, it pricks and burns
Your distance arouses the insomniac in me
 
I have been studying the ceiling
And I imagine seeing your beautiful face
Are you peacefully sleeping?
Or are you awake feeling lost and displaced?
 
I don’t smell you in the sheets
This generic softener doesn’t remind me of home
Wherever I can feel your heartbeats
Is where I want to be, is where I belong
 
The hours are slowly passing by
And sunrays are shyly sneaking through the window
But they don’ reflect on your eyes
It’s just another morning without your morning glow

 

P.S. I miss you

Secret

Please accept this overpriced coffee
Take your time. Smell it and drink it slowly
 
Enjoy the ambiance and my company today
Who knows if tomorrow we’d cross pathways
 
Tell me a secret that no one else knows
Allow me a glimpse into your inner soul
 
Share a dark tear or a broken smile
Make these five minutes worth the while
 
Feel the liberty in sharing truths with a stranger
Resist the hesitation and insensible sense of danger
 
What is it that defines who you are?
What is it that keeps you together and cuts you apart?
 
Believe me it was not my intention to see your tears
But I can’t say I’m not glad that I was here
 
Let’s talk about the weather and other trivial subjects
Let’s ignore disappointments and deep regrets
 
I love your nervous slightly embarrassed laugh
How do you feel letting go of what you had?
 
It’s running safely in my bloodstream
A piece of you shall forever remain within me
 
Forget your job, your family and friends
This is a moment that shall last after it ends
 
Could I interest you in a secret of mine?
There was once this time…
