Cool and composed you appear to be
as the temperature drops with your icy gaze.
Yet I can feel the fire slowly starting,
whenever you turn your eyes my way.
How can I resist the smile that is forming
on these lips as I hold those eyes with mine?
You can play cool and detached all you want
but this I tell you true.
I will break that cool facade of yours,
smash it to bits, unmake and unman you.
I will reshape and remake you,
with fire and passion from these hands.
I will breathe new life to your soul
that you’ve forgotten for so long.
I will make it yearn to live with the fires of love,
while I break it free from its icy prison.
I will melt your indifference with heat,
that only comes with this love that burns,
until you understand that your cold demeanor
is no match with the fire that I can conjure.

running to the door,
wrapping arms on neck.
raining kisses on missed lips,
what took you so long?
Freely falling in love with the idea of love,
that clings to the very lips of yours that I wish to kiss,
with selfless abandon just to share this wish.
That you fall in love with this soul that weeps,
for the softest touch that you can bestow
on satin skin like petals on flowers that grow.
Caressing with deep seated love coming from the
that knows how sensuous fingertips can be
when they move ever so slowly against a feverish
Mapping territories with every dip and glide
of splayed fingers that explore unchartered lands,
until they find the treasure buried deep within,
and claim it for its own to be awaken by your
Bridging distances with words built on
fragile dreams and budding feelings.
We spin words and send them to space
retrieving them in little handheld devices.
Reading stories woven by minds
that are trapped in each of their own worlds.
Connecting them in silent reverie
until thoughts are pierced and pieced together,
and filed and stored away in memory fields
where we can stroll around in perfect bliss.
Conjuring up pictures of who we are
and who we can be when we’re together.
When the bridges we’ve built
to close these distances are sturdier than ever
we might then be free to give ourselves
the chance to be the best in each others eyes,
because that’s what love can make us do
whe we see each other in the eyes of a lover.
Everything is silent even the world that is used to us burning the lines of technological spaces. These hollow feelings caused by pauses in between, a bitter taste like swallowing a cup of ashes of burned hearts and letters we’ve written on the skies. These moments of silence how easily they can strip away, the very foundations of who we are that we’ve built while discovering the meaning of each other. But still we have the courage to put everything to right, even as the weary days pass us by without end. And here we are still patching things up because that’s who we are when we’re in love. Breaking rules, breaking grounds just to fill the gap that float between us like distances do. And we find ourselves seeking out each other, even in the spaces and darkness in our lives. Hoping that our hands will reach out and find one another, even when these pauses in between are tearing us apart.
