checkmate you called out
as you boxed me in a corner
unable to move
seeing the fire in your eyes
and the smile on your lips
that melt my heart and
weakened my knees.
such a fancy game we play
when all i wanted was to be caught
by you in a corner
where we can steal kisses
from one another.
We bend hundreds of illusions to form our own reality, to cover these broken steel frames that surround us underneath the starlit skies. Our dreams spread out into space are like stepping stones hanging in limbo floating and unsure of what the future can bring.
We bleed in silence for the hurts that break our quiet travels, from old lovers and the new ones we carve their names on distant memories, to depart from our presence and be buried in far flung spaces, never to be unearthed yet forever remembered.
We love like the distant stars that shine with such glorious abandon, diamonds of the night we are precious souls searching for one another hoping that one day we will find our hands wrapped around each other.
Behind the star lit skies there lies
a princess with wings crying in the night.
For she is waiting for her lover true,
who only comes when the moon is blue.
She knows he is the one for her,
but why is it taking him so long?
To come and brighten her world,
just like the way the sun does in the morning.
Her nights are all quiet and dark,
except for her star-lit lanterns that she hung
around her little cloudy castle,
to light his way back into her arms.
I suddenly had the urge to go look for this video. I just love these little bugs and how they sang Letter B. Sesame Street really made a big impact in my childhood and so I am sharing this with you. 🙂 Enjoy!
I want to be the first smile you’ll see
and the lips you want to kiss.
I want to be the one who’ll fix you breakfast
and pour you a cup of coffee.
I want to be the one who waves to you goodbye
when you’re off to work.
I want to be the one who calls you from time to time
telling you how much I’ve missed you.
I want to be the reason you come home in a rush
not just because dinner is served but because I am
I want to be the one who tucks you at night
and wraps you in my arms holding you tight.
I want to be the one who chases away your nightmares
and replaces them with better dreams.
I want to be the one who will hold your hands,
even when they are lined with age.
I want to be the one who’ll still be able to
bring that smile on your face,
even when you no longer remember who I am.
And I want to be the one you’ll miss the most
when I am no longer by your side.
