Has reason ever opened its wings for you
On cool spring mornings
Like seeing the world for the first time in color
The way your blue drapes over the skies
Have you ever seen your slight smile shining like a crescent moon
The way it hangs over my heart like you do
With hands strong as timber
Planting your roots in my veins
I found you so feebly
Why did you disappear so deep into darkness
What if my hand never touches your skin
That’s how oceans form in deserts
The way you planted life in me
From a single drop of your pen
Or the first time I heard you speak
Water rolling in covering my sumits
I need you
You are the air I breathe
Every thought, every molecule
I crush through your secrets like photons do
You should identify as a galaxy
Can you see your reflection in my eyes
There, the big bang
I’m still forming from your words
You could be 93 million miles from me and you’d still only take a light-second to reach me
You can run but you can’t hide from existence
You must find my vibrations through space-time
Echoing and longing for your thunder
Lightning is when you see me
Your voice causes my soul to have earthquakes
The way you make me shake
You are the dark and the light
I want all of you
Like a raging fire ravishing a forest
Cracking open seeds
So life can begin
I start and end with you
You are my forever

Welp, I still love you. I was soul-sleeping til you found me. I haven’t slept since. Obsession or love, it’s all the same.

Bathroom selfie. Quarantine sucks. And ZERO GIGS THIS YEAR. ZERO.
My dreams are always fucking nightmares anyway…

I love the wonderful feedback about my poetry, that’s why I’m now on Patreon which is an excellent platform for writers and artist. Can you help me reach my goal? www.patreon.com/poeeternal

  1. Me too!! Recently I started writing non-rhyme and I love the sort of freedom my voice gets. I have more recent ones you may like. His Kingdom is my latest post, and it is also in the style of freestyle non-rhyme. But also, it just received 100 likes and 60 comments, the most I’ve ever received on any poem. Thanks for reading my stuffs! Writing is all I have left. I give it my all. ☺

  3. I think some people have a hard time understanding rhyme, most listen to song lyrics so I don’t understand the disconnect. I’m a modern poet and so too my rhyme. I absolutely love rhyme tho! In every possible sense.
