[Poetry] It’s Our Earth Day Too

I’ve called Earth home for more than 100 years
The largest of turtles, yet many of us have disappeared,
It’s our Earth Day too.

You love that I’m black, white, Asian, and cuddly,
If you love me, then why are there so little of me?
It’s our Earth Day too.

Beautifully brilliant blues, vibrant oranges and reds,
Bloody feathers of homeless macaws, lying on the ground dead.
It’s our Earth Day too. Continue reading “[Poetry] It’s Our Earth Day Too”

[Poetry] Pretty

She says she’s not pretty
But if only she knew
The way I bite my lip
When she smiles with hers
The way she teases me
Like a taboo.

She says she’s not pretty
But then her eyes lock on mine
And in them I see
Every reason I need
To know why I lived
All this time.

[Poetry] Tu Sei Quello Che Amo | You Are The One I Love

Al mondo tu sei diabolico, intrigante, e furbo,
Ma a me tu sei angelico, amabile, e incantato.
Al mondo tu sei fatale, pericoloso, e nocivo,
Ma tu sei la persona unica che mi dai sicurezza.
Al mondo tu sei disonesto e bugiardi,
Ma sempre tu dici me la verita.
Al mondo tu sei ribelle,
Ma a me tu sei un dirigente.
Al mondo tu non sei buono abbastanza,
Ma a me tu sei tutto.

To the world, you are diabolical, scheming, and sly,
But to me you are angelic, lovable, and enchanting.
To the world you are fatal, dangerous, and harmful,
But you are the only person who makes me feel safe.
To the world, you are dishonest and a little liar,
But you always tell me the truth.
To the world you are a rebel,
But to me, you are a leader.
To the world, you are not good enough,
But to me, you are everything.

[Poetry] This Is My Story

This is a story of how I lived.
My memories with the people closest to me
They had stories apiece, and through them relived
All those days we spent living so carefree
I don’t know if it was a blessing or a curse
I was able to see people actually miss me
I don’t know why I didn’t move on at first
I lingered awhile, just floating idly,
To this day, I don’t know why I had to die
I didn’t plan it and I don’t know why
One day I upped and left my body behind
This is a story of how I died.

[Poetry] A Life Lesson

They say people don’t change.

But I’ve learned that sometimes, people do change,
And sometimes, they don’t change back
And sometimes, you have to move on,
Because you can’t spend your life waiting for them to change back,

Sometimes, the only thing you can do
Is pick up the memories you once shared
And make something beautiful out of them.

[Poetry] The Book of Shadows

Another demon, another day
Will evil ever stay away?
Look, another demon’s trying to steal me,
Whee! There I go, flying away.
Surely by now these demons realize
That even if they try a thousand times
I’ll always protect myself from evil
And yet they always seem so surprised. Continue reading “[Poetry] The Book of Shadows”

[Poetry] Best Friend

Life Raft-
In a sea of bad thoughts
Fresh Air-
In a room of smoke
Unwavering heart-
Among disbelievers
Stifled Laughs-
Among inside jokes
Sun’s Rays-
Breaking through the clouds
Cool Rain-
Cleansing through the soul
Sticky Tape-
To put the pieces together
Other half-
To make me whole.

[Poetry] Fortune-Telling

Hidden in a valley beside an open stream – This will be the type of place where you will find your dream.
Folding your wishes behind shooting stars – The key is not wishing, but to start where you are.
It will slip through your fingers like grains of sand – Nothing will ever go the way you planned.
Trust yourself for you do not need a map – Others’ directions will surely lead you to a trap.
Hidden in a valley beside an open stream –This will be the type of place where you will find your dream.

[Poetry] The Lion

The lion prowled, padded paws whispering on the grass
His mane soft, his claws glinting
No one messes with the king.

The lion kept guard, watching over his domain
From the fields to the edge of the cliffs
He had control over everything.

The lion was proud, always protecting his pride
Always demanding reverence
My heart was nothing more than his plaything.

[Poetry] More Than Just A Dream

Like winter’s chilly rain, for you I weep,
To be with you is but an endless wait,
Somehow for you I have fallen so deep,
Your mere presence to me intoxicates.
I make a wish upon a fleeting star,
Eyes closed, I can almost feel your embrace,
Reality between us, a distance so far,
I try to trace the smooth lines of your face.
Like summer’s heat, you burn bright in my eyes,
With a gaze so intense you freeze me cold,
I call out to you but hear no reply,
Arms stretched out, I yearn to hold.
I cannot touch misty wisps of steam,
And you are nothing more than just a dream.
