a touch of death

we were laying in white

white sheets

white mattress

white skin

passing a cigarette between us

and despite the smoke

your apartment smelled like dead roses

and i felt like a fallen petal

i realize that the cigarettes will kill me

but maybe one day so will you

you're a murderer

in a lover's disguise

you're that much more dangerous

you could rip my heart out

and i would help you

i'm not suicidal

just a hopeless romantic

but perhaps

that's the same thing

Summer

I have never quite seen anything like it.

The skyline seems to spill over,

We are quiet, as we watch it graze the horizon, ignoring the rising moon-

We ignore it as well, only looking away from the ethereal sky to steal glances at each other.

You catch my eye, and smile.

It stays.

And so we lay,

Drinking in the warm summer breeze, watching the hazy sunset of wine and what seems to be liquid gold.

Your fingers brush against mind,

Soft, fleeting touches that (I keep hoping) won't end.

I see you through rose tinted glasses, and all I can think of,

All I want to think of, is- 

Forever.

A campfire roars in the distance,

We hear the lilting voices of children,

Laughing, whispering, singing their favorite songs-

Songs we learned all those years ago.

I barely remember, but you hum along, ever so softly.

You shift closer to me,

I can almost hear your heartbeat as your shoulder leans against mine.

The grass between our toes is warm as we try to bask in the already fading sun.

And very much like our summer sky, you fade away to the night fall. 

I have never quite seen anything like it.

Water
Written by stargazer

STEAM

I knew he was of water as soon as he was birthed from my womb.

His cries rang out like waves crashing against a stone wall.

They reverberated through my body and shook my very soul.

As he grew, he became the ocean. 

He was ever moving and changing.

My boundaries couldn't hold his mysterious depths.

He would leave, and bring various debris to my shore.

But, he continuously blessed my saintly home with his laugh- A low one, akin to water rushing in a wild river. 

He filled my home with peace.

His father was of fire.

He blazed on the darkest of nights like an inferno consuming woods.

People swore that there was no hope of taming the flames... But when fire meets water, steam forms.

Yet, fire fears evaporating the water, as water fears diminishing the fire.

I watch them together and I am amazed, as I watch water and fire corral each other. 

And love, like steam, mists.

Love vs Lust
Written by Harry_Situation in portal Romance & Erotica

Love vs Lust

Love is a cure

To sadness, loneliness, and sorrow

Giving joy and delight

Lust is a poison

To mind, heart, and soul

Causing despair and spite

Mother's Love

You noticed the times I yelled at you to eat your veggies.

You noticed the time I didn't allow you to go out with your friends.

And you noticed the time I was mad at you for not obeying me.

But little one..

You didn't notice me checking up on you at night to see if you're safe.

You didn't notice the pain in my eyes when I saw you ill.

And you most definitely didn't notice how it broke me to not have a conversation with you..

It's because I love you that I have to keep checking you. I just want you to be the best my little one.

I wish you knew exactly what I meant.
Written by Lonz1234

I wish you knew exactly what I meant

My words fail, my heart breaks

Rambling thoughts to fill a book

I can't muster a word

You look on, silent

The world, silent

My love, silent

So you silently turned away

Heels making delicate taps on the ground

Each step composing thousands of lines

Until I have an epic

An epic of tears on the pavement

And misunderstanding

And deafening silence

Lovers at Sea (From Midnight Memos about Love #3 peak)

                                            Lovers siting at the shore

                                              watching the sun set

She:“Love?”

                                                            He:“Yes Darling”

“ I was just thinking, well, I know that the World rotates around the sun and all of that logic humans have decorated on the miracles of the planets, but say we were to throw science to the wind for a second…”

He looks at her curiously

                                                                        

                                                                             “Yeah…”

“What if the sun sets in the Sea. As in that’s its home. Like couples that rise for work and come back to each other at the end of the day. What if the sea and the sun are lovers?”

.....* conversation continued**

REMNANTS

She brushes her hair

and as she looks in the mirror,

she swears she can see

remnants of his whispers

fall upon her shoulders
