I want to Forget him...But I still can't

Being in love with him

constantly fighting the high waters

Death at the gates of another town

another realm

A carnival where they hand you free chocolate fudge ice-cream

dripping with sauce and toppings

Crusty yet chewy

When you taste it

Butterscotch fills your mouth

with hazelnut and paradise

But you are at the gates

Shunned from entry

Banned

Banished

Unrequited and doomed

in your loneliness

You can turn it into aloneness

But you can't escape the inevitable tragedy

that awaits you at the gates of despair

and disparity 

There is an end to everything

Existing without you hurts

Existing with you hurts even harder

You are the sunshine and the culprit

The means to an end

the breath that your heart skips

whenever it is alone

Another passage

I want to be with him

But I do not want to erase my self

The Self

on the shores of lurid existence

where sea-salt and cream pie gets crushed under the feet of his ember

The Sun that Rises

When the world rages

You provide me shelter

When the storm blinds me

You show me the path

When I have lost my way

You lend me your heart

I could not be who I am

Without you by my side

that fifth month

the death of May and all of her blooming buds causes the sweltering summer sun to set itself up for the coming months, in hopes to reconcile the differences between that fifth month and all that had been lost since

Vow of Love

Lies the waterStill and deep

And I trapped

Beneath its

Shadowy bulk

But hear me now

From the depths

Of my soul

I will find you

Always with truth

martyr

Say that you will die

for me, and I will lie

down in your waiting grave

Say that you will die

for me, and I will sigh

long enough to smooth out

the letters and the dates

that bookend your life

Say that you will die

for me, and I will cry

out against you so to

set the heavens into such

commotion that they

should refuse you entry

and send you back

to your empty flesh, swell

your limbs with fresh life and

bright blood hot enough

to chase the chill from

your clouded eyes and

raise a pink blush at

the points of your fingers

and the tip of your nose

Say that you will die

for me, and I will reply

            “I am not the kind of person

             who enjoys sacrificial offerings.

Soothing these burns

As I reach for you to stay

(our love

One moment more before the chaos of the daynight

Sweeps you away.

My skin caught on fire at the

Twinkling of the piano,

diurnal

sometimes I wish that the sun

would set and never rise again

it’s not so much that I enjoy the night, really

but the soft light of the moon

lives inside your bones, and I wish

to cover myself in the starlight of

your smile, and spend my days in

devoted study of the galaxy

mapped onto your skin as

constellations made of freckles

De palillas y mariposas

[Note: I am learning Spanish, and I wanted to try my hand at writing as well as speaking. I would love to get feedback from anyone who speaks the language fluently so I can improve. The English translation is below the original for those who don't speak Spanish. Gracias por su ayuda.]

No sabes cuanto tiempo

He querido decirte

Cuanto te amo

Tus ojos brillan

Como las estrellas

Tu corazón está llena

Del amor por el mundo

Y la vida

Pero me siento como

Una palilla a una llama

Cuando las mariposas

Bailen alrededor de

Tu cabeza

Y acercado hay

Muchas fuegos

Mas fuerzas

Que encuentro

¿Me mires si te pregunte

para una palabra?

Moriría un hombre feliz

Una palilla que

Cambia con tu voca dulce

Entre una mariposa

Que bailo yo mismo

TRANSLATION:

Of Moths and Butterflies

You don't know how long

I've wanted to tell you

How much I love you

Your eyes shine

Like the stars

Your heart is filled

With love for the world

And for life

But I feel like

A moth drawn to a flame

While the butterflies

Dance around your head

And nearby there are

Many fires

Much stronger

Than I encounter

Will you look at me if I ask you

For a word?

I would die a happy man

A moth that

Changes with your sweet voice

Into a butterfly

That dances myself

Explore the concept of Silence in a poem...
Written by Jasper in portal Poetry & Free Verse

At Home With Silence

the steady whir of the oscillating fan

the singular creek of an old wooden chair

the unhurried tick-tock of the pretty wall clock

the periodic rustle of a yellowed page turning

the rhythmic buzz of flittering hummingbird wings

the soft pitter-patter of kittenish feet

the warming silence of love flooding the room
