Torn

When you leave, I don’t want you to go.
But when you’re here, I ask myself why I stay.
I wish we made better sense.

Lost

I think I’m lost…
Lost in a place that feels like home, but really isn’t. A place full of warmth, laughter and moments of happiness. A place where my heart remembered how to breathe.
But this same place holds memories of a time when I was different, younger, broken. A time when I fought to wake up and find myself.

I’m not that person anymore; but why am I still here? I walked into this place with eyes wide open and now I don’t know if I have the courage to leave. Not because I’m losing myself again, but because my heart breathes here.

Déjà vu

I thought that I had forgotten you…
left you in the past where you belong.
But being here, in this place where you grew up, I don’t know why I can’t help but think of you.
This place, so unknown to me, wreaks of your essence and I hate it.
Why are you on my mind when I’ve never been here with you?
Why is your name on my tongue when I don’t even miss you!

She Dances

She sways her hips to the rhythm of a beat that flows to her tips.
Her lips they press as she grabs her dress and her hands her frame caress.

There’s a fire in her eyes…
A sensual flame that flickers and flaunts as sultry sounds her body taunt.
She moves, she grooves, her inhibitions are loosed and for once she won’t have to choose…
between being herself or the one she tamed.

In this state all is fate when music is her bait.
She yields her will to the tempos advances and in a trance…

She dances.

Walking away

I have ended things…
Walked away from people more times than I can count.
But never have I felt that I was walking away from LOVE, until you.
Yet, it still feels like the right thing to do.
And so I can’t look back…
My heart won’t stand a chance if I do.
