What is reality if not for dreams?
What are dreams if not for reality?
A house is an endeavour;
a dreamer’s joy if you will,
something that everyone does crave.
It’s an image of belonging,
the roots to a family’s existence,
without which, a family has no place.
A house is but brick and timber;
a home is what you make of it.
A home is an establishment
of everlasting hope and dreams.
She, not it, exists as a symbol
of a family’s undying pledge
to provide the spoils of wealth and riches
to the rightful kin and family’s heir.
One can move away from their first house,
across vast continents if you will,
but a home stays with you forever
and will exist in your memories
and dreams, until the bittersweet conclusion.
A home, like a lover, exists in your heart,
unlike a house that will exist only in your eyes
and the eyes of all who enter your humble abode.
What begins as a house can soon become a home.
By filling her with all your worldly possessions,
your memories, your thoughts and your love,
she soon grows up to become a place
of great warmth and significant happiness
and if you listen real closely to the walls,
the ceilings and the floors, sometimes a home’s secrets
permit their many great stories to be conveyed.
SYNOPSIS: A love poem with irregular stanzas, verses and rhymes. I can promise you two things; one, it will not always make sense, and two, this poem will tell the story of a love that could echo on throughout the ages.
We met in the corner
of my sheering heart.
You looked at me
with big brown eyes,
making Heaven seem even closer.
I could never be apart;
we’re meant to be,
and that’s not a lie.
I was only seventeen
when I stepped into that town.
People didn’t spare a chance
for someone they’d never seen.
You however felt around
and sparked an age old romance.
All I want is you,
that’s my life’s ambition,
to attract your attention
each and every day.
When all this is done
I’ll be your number one
where all this is true
in your so perfect way;
I could be passionate;
I could be sensitive;
I could be what you’re looking for,
and soon hope I will be.
I could keep your secrets,
I could give you reason to live
and give you much, much more,
as long as you love me.
You saw the man I was,
the man that was true.
You then bent down low
and whispered in my ear,
‘even when I’m feeling low
all I want is you.’
You lay on top of me
a ray of light and beauty
who made me feel so right.
Giving you a kiss
and fulfilling your undying wish,
I slept with a Goddess last night.
When I look into your eyes
I can’t seem to recognise
the beauty that’s leading me to you.
I can’t seem to understand
when I hold onto your hand
that you’re the one I would choose
to live and breathe with forever,
which is why we must be together.
I love you every year,
speaking words you long to hear.
I love you every hour,
this is my eternal power.
I love you every minute,
and I can’t deny it.
I love you every second,
this I can’t pretend.
I’d paint the sky with you,
I’d end the world
if you told me to;
I hope this is only beginning,
you’re my reason for living;
the most beautiful girl in all the world.
If I asked you to kiss,
if I asked you to hug,
I’m sure it won’t be dangerous,
in this moment been lovingly snug,
feeling all your love and bliss.
I’m afraid though, this is contagious,
for I’ve caught the love bug.
Before long you flew away,
leaving me quite alone.
When you’re home sick
will you remember me
on those colder days?
I know you’re gone,
that’s the saddest trick
I will ever see.
When without you I can’t breathe,
when near you I can’t believe,
I love you just so much.
This is truly not a crush,
you just take my breath away.
To me that’s a sensation
that happens every single day,
been my one inspiration.
Some things in this world are beautiful,
some things in this world are spectacular.
But when it comes to you,
there’s no such description
to describe such a perfect being.
To me you’re more than incredible,
you are more than spectacular
and there’s nothing I wouldn’t do,
fulfilling my urges by holding my fascination
while your love remains to be seen.
When I look into your eyes
I can’t seem to sympathise
with the one’s I have left behind.
Since the first time that we met
you have made me forget,
unable to remove you from my mind.
If this is how it is to continue,
I can’t wait for the next adventure.
SYNOPSIS: A hypothetical scenario of the end of the world and who one would like to spend those last few minutes with.
Why does the world’s largest catastrophe
have to happen to you and me?
We could not contain global warming
and now our planet is exploding.
Angry red fire burns us alive
but in the end our love survives.
Although we fall under annihilation,
love remains our greatest salvation.
Here under the Milky Way
our world is slowly blown away.
There’s nothing we could do
so let me hold onto you.
Please forget the world’s on fire,
tonight you are my single greatest desire.
As the world begins to blow,
we only have five minutes to go.
We stare into each other’s eyes
as our world begins to die.
I hold you close to my heart,
even in death, we won’t be apart,
I hold you tightly my precious pearl,
as we say goodbye to our world.
We remember all the things we have done
as our flesh is joined together as one.
If the world was truly about to end
I would undoubtedly love to spend
every dying minute alone with you
until the world’s destruction took me from you.
When the world swallows your face,
there’d be nothing which could replace
my undying love that’ll last forever,
in Heaven we’ll always be together.
