I remember how much I wanted you Craved you like a meal only grandma could cook Longed for you Like stewed peas with spinners Served over white rice that tastes nicer Than any restaurant could dare make The sweetness of the meat Contrasting the salty of the marrow….
In hindsight I know You didn’t deserve me. But I feel I deserved you– Every bit of joy, But more times than no I feel I deserved every bit of pain;
When I look into your eyes I see the sky melted Into tiny pools Of a river deep enough to drown in And it’s hard enough to catch my breath On regular days But you capture me in waves And ripple effects Caused by dimples summoning whirlpools To drag me deeper
He knows what he wants when he sees it So he reached out his arms just to seize it He got in return A reason to yearn A treasure to earn as he sees fit. © 1-6-2013 L. Ashwood
Chisel away Take from me All the excess Jettison As from a speeding ship That which is holding me back
Give me the ones who dare to care to make a difference The ones with fear in their glare but still stand for change
The expectations weigh heavy Knees buckle As inner demons chuckle Telling you lies And covering your eyes To the incredible potential of you
