Pictures of you

A Morning like this

On a morning like this
when the sun peeks over the horizon
with warmth and grace
I awake alone
again

waiting for our paths to cross
on a morning like this
when the air smells of hope

My heart is incomplete

Mariya

Mariya

Who has come into my life when i wasn’t looking
Who has broken my walls before i put them up

Mariya

Who has known me before I’ve known her
Who smiles an infectious smile

Mariya

Who I want to know like the grooves in my hand
Who I want to love like I’ve never loved

Who is
Mariya

They don’t love you like I do…

Her smile lights up rooms
tenderness hidden behind layers of protection
she was mine
once
I was careless with our love
as a child who’d never learned
once
that smile was feet from me
I like to think I was the reason for it
sometimes
Separate paths once again
we walk
that smile
I’ll never forget
How butterflies were common
because of her
once

Nights like these

It’s nights like these
that make me hopeful
it’s nights like these
that help me forget
it’s nights like these
where kisses mean so much
it’s nights like these
I need your touch
it’s nights like these
where hope grows
where once was apathy
it’s nights like these
it’s nights
like these
