People are poetry.

They could be rhymes that make no sense at all, but surprisingly go w...

SCULPTURE

 

If I could write the promises that came from those lips

I'd be writing them on sand — as the wind blows them away.

Though like a fool I'd continue to write

Repeatedly, repeatedly, without any spite.

 

And if I'd even try to guess your mood 

Which is horribly hard to conclude,

I'd be a thousand miles off the radar; but,

You did always say you'd keep me on my toes. 

 

Do believe me when I swear I'd never tire

as I admire your very figure (As if sculpted by Michelangelo himself),

well-defined whether in light or dark

Painfully beautiful even as your weary eyes sleep.

 

And I could kiss those lips that wonderfully part;

But the mere thought defeats my steady heart.

I could only hope to touch more than your marble skin,

Whose very perfection would be the cause of my sin.

 

I could only dream to be that fire

That might melt your stone cold exterior.

Alas, I could only wish that one day you'll find

That I'm the one who can change your mind.
