Half of the bed.

Half of the bed,

Filled with words 

And the minds 

Of other beings

But the one 

I yearn for.

I call your name,

And they answer instantly.

Satisfied, I am.

But it takes

More than ten minds

To compensate 

The body of yours.

I think of 

Disposing my shelves

And use the other half

As shelter 

For my beloved books

To seal up the hole

You might have made.

I’ll pile them up. 

And I’ll hold them tight.

And fall asleep

Within your embrace.

I mean their embrace. 

Satisfied, I try to be. 

  

The future is uncertain

I say that I don’t expect anything
But that’s no true
I am expecting the worst
I am expecting this to end
That you won’t like my natural face
The one without make up
That you’ll get bored of my stories
That you’ll get tired of my laughs
That you’ll pick on my flaws
Rather than embracing them.
As confident as I am,
I am still imperfect
I like my flaws
I like my face
I like my body
I like me.
But I’m expecting that you wont
That you wont like me.. Anymore.

Why would you expect such a thing,
My dear?
We can go as slow as you want
Or as quick as the wind.
I’ll be right at your pace
Right next to you to feel my warmth
Right behind you to protect you
Right in front of you to guide the way.
Set your expectations free.
Let us walk our path
At our own pace.
No rush. No trouble.
As for your flaws,
I have already embraced them.
I acknowledge their existence.
I love them as they are.
I like you as you are
Because the you now,
Likes me as who I am.
Why are you looking down?
Hey, look up.
Look at my eyes as they shine.
They shine because of the stars
The stars within you.
Yes. Smile.
Smile until your eyes soften.
The future is uncertain.
It’s terrifying, I know.
But as there is a sad ending,
There is also a happy one.
Until the day our journey detours
From the happy to the sad,
Let us hold hands
Until our memories come to an end.
Let me make you smile a little longer.
Let me fill your heart with my love
Until your heart is fuelled for life.
