― Charles Bukowski


your watercolors run into mine,
and your lines end with
my curves

my lovat eyes and your sable

yet if I spend too long on the symmetry
of our hearts,
remind me to speak of the unity as well

created from a vermillion chaos

that passion knows so well, but
hasn't met
Saturdays playing tag in our home

like little kids under a cerulean sky

and critics say the splatters on the
edges of your hands
are only afterthoughts, but they miss

(in viridian envy?)

the way your thumbs rest
at the corners of my eyes, for my tears are not misplaced
to you, only erased

to create jacinth smiles

and that is how your watercolors run
into mine,
with hesitant brushstrokes but a steady hand

and ivory intentions

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

JADE. You are always always welcome! And I have been well Alhumdulillah. Tired and exhuasted mostly studying and exams. Gosh still four months to go. Actually six if you count the university procedures. Gosh, so Hectic and all.HAHAHA. And I miss writing so much. I guess I am wayy too much in a hurry these days and when I'm in a hurry I can't write at all. Ah well, enough about me. TELL ME ABOUT YOU. P.s. Excuse the insane capitalization.

First dentistry was painless.
Then bicycles were chainless,
Carriages were horseless,
And many laws enforceless.

Next cookery was fireless,
Telegraphy was wireless,
Cigars were nicotineless,
And coffee caffeineless.

Soon oranges were seedless,
The putting green was weedless,
The college boy was hatless,
The proper diet fatless.

New motor roads are dustless,
The latest steel is rustless,
Our tennis courts are sodless,
Our new religion — godless.

aw Dangit! lolXD

“When it's over, I want to say: all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.

When it is over, I don't want to wonder
if I have made of my life something particular, and real.
I don't want to find myself sighing and frightened,
or full of argument.

I don't want to end up simply having visited this world.”

Ooh Jade!!!!! You are soo good!!!

That was fantastic. Poetry isn't easy, but that was just great. I love it.
