Daily Haiku 6#

To err is only human.
The only time perfection exists is when
you are blinded by pride.

On a cold winter night
Locked in the warmest embrace
at a down town party
in front of the fireplace.

The first meaningful contact
a rush of blood to the head
a smile of realization
the sharing of secrets in bed.

Every moment then
was a blur of happiness where
the common theme was you.

Every now and then
I still wake up in the middle of the night
thinking of you.

Daily Haiku 5#

A fool is someone who
is afraid of looking like a fool
when in front of others.

as the courage to be yourself is

The autumn leaves might fall
but it's how you live that invokes
eternal summer in your heart.

Do not be a leaf
that sways each time a breeze blows,
flow through tides like water.

Daily Haiku 1#

Why stay under the spotlight,
when you can alight the skies by
illuminating the lives of others.

Sun, sea, silver lining,
The sound of waves crashing upon the shore.
Sighs, skin, your smile,
I never knew which one to explore.

I've never expected life to be fair,
Apparently we'll never have enough time,
But each moment felt perfectly balanced,
When I was yours, and you were mine.

Across a Crowded Room

I have never felt so alone,
looking at you across a crowded room,
filled with the most boisterous of friends,
knowing I might never feel your hands in mine again.

You didn't just break the walls,
you understood the pain behind the stoic silence,
the searing sarcasm,
the nonchalant, indifference to the world,
that it was all just a veil.

You embraced all my oddities,
my past and my enormous mistakes,
Picked up the pieces and filled it,
with understanding and grace.

But after months and a thousand miles apart,
I guess it's back to the start.
There's never been any blame,
Just lamenting and wishing things could stay the same.

So here I am again,
pretending everything's fine.
When all I want is to feel you whispering in my ear,
guiding me towards the divine.
