There in the loneliness…

in the heart of the afterglow
when no one hoped for a beautiful rainbow
aloofness of the framing dark
could set the mood of the proverbial spark

we’ve met in a place by chance
our eyes didn’t expect a second glance
heard a heart that beats in the distance
so i took it all at once


greetings were as warm as summer
her smile tossed some colored magical glitters
it solicited enough courage to go a bit near
so i could hear the sweet voice of an angel

names were exchange at one another
excited faces shone in every corner
nothing could stop the exchange of sweet nothings
nothing could wrap up our hearts that’s unfolding

kisses that were kept inside my being
secretly flew out of my mind burning
embraces made by my enveloping eyes
never enacted by my arms as cold as ice

yet we felt vibrations as she touched me
excitedly melted when we explored our bodies
there in the loneliness of my dreamy thoughts
the sun awarded me a lot of overslept frauds…

Could you be my Valentine?

as i sit alone on my bed
thinking about the days that passed
it’s been three days after we’ve met
felt like three years have already gone past

since the day i asked for your name
your smile was just unforgettable
Angel as you are called by friends
the feeling was just unexplainable

our parting words then, “see you in a week”
but i had hoped it could be sooner and quick
feeling a bit romantic here on my bed
i kissed your number in my CP where i kept

tomorrow is the day for us to meet
ready to go with some cash saved in my pocket
i practiced the lines the way i will greet
should i embrace, shake hands, or offer you a seat

i’ve marked the calendar, Sunday the fourteenth
i’m twenty-one and you’re young at nineteen
can you be my date, please don’t decline
it’s the Day of Hearts, “Could you be my Valentine?”
