Midnight Texts

When the clock struck midnight

the moon torched her body with its light

she felt so pure

as if stripped from her clothes and sins.

Baggage

She packed her suitcase

as if she was being chased by some animal 

she packed everything 

didn’t leave anything behind 


There wasn’t enough time to iron and fold 

she just simply piled everything she could find 

he was waiting for her outside…

well… that’s what she thought


They weren’t eloping or anything 

Hell… it was just their first date


And without thinking she was about to pack and carry all her messy emotions  (clothes) to him 

With so many emotions  (clothes) she would stay with him for more than one day

I mean… that’s what she thought 


A raging fire

She could still taste the night before the morning after

He was all over her lips

Even though he wasn’t around a part of him was still with her 


She could still taste the flavour of their kiss that they shared the night before 

His cologne still on her skin as she hugged him goodnight

She could taste a hint of love and compassion when she licked her lips over and over again

Though their love was innocent

Everything was fire and it was a burning sensation between them 


The little things ignited a raging fire

And they both knew nothing or no one could put it out 

It wasn’t just your typical spark that dies out

It was a fire

You’d get burned if you came near it. 

2am and Faded 

Laying there 

watching the sun set twenty times 

freshly shaved legs just laying there 

letting the sun rays sink in


Night time creeps in

and I’m still there

laying on the sand 

the moon makes a bold statement and just hangs there in the sky

the whole night

taking the spotlight

like it’s the star of the show


The curtains close and there’s an applause

a standing ovation even

no tomatoes this time round

just flowers


It was a good show

didn’t take a video of it though 

but my body will remember it

forever it shall stay on my skin, mind and in my soul and memories. 

The Definition of Love

She didn’t know what love was

how it looked like

or sounded like

if it had a taste or not


If it came in a package

or came flying  down 


So every time a man touched her

when their eyes filled with flames of desire

as they told her things that didn’t come from neither their heart nor brain

she thought that was love 


As she undressed

and when they smiled 

she thought they finally fell for her 


So she never understood why

after a couple of months 

they’d go distant 


She therefore concluded

that she was cursed

when in reality

the poor girl just mistook lust for love.

No Strings Attached 

Tell me 

how you do it 

keeping it all in place 


Your eyes reveal nothing

where do you hide all your emotions?

are they out there somewhere in space?


I try to keep my sanity but I can’t

how do you expect me to feel nothing when we kiss?

this isn’t really what I thought it would be


I’m playing it cool like I don’t care and that it’s nothing 

but it has become more than something 


So I keep all my feelings bottled up 

because it has already been implied 

that this is nothing more than a simple hook up


So I sit

waiting for things to change 

but you’ve become my guilty pleasure 

and there’s nothing I can do about it.

Snake charmer

Let’s dance 

like our bodies are attracted to each other

you only have this one chance 
Watch me

as I swerve my hips from left to right 

let your hand roam free


Lips so close 

I’m the snake you’re my charmer 

this is the destiny you chose. 

Deprime

Hello,

I’m not sure if you remember me

It’s been a while since we crossed paths 

let me remind you of what we used to be 


So,

they said we were never good together 

you went to a shrink to get rid of me

and what we had could have lasted forever

but you didn’t want that


I bid you farewell,

I see nowadays you love wearing that smile

I won’t disturb you as much

I just wanted to say hi because it’s been a while.
