Risk it all

I’ve stood on the edge of alot of cliffs,
The precipice of love, Life, Pain.
And I’ve lost everything except my name,
And everytime I stand on the edge and that fear succumbs me,
I think about all that it could be.
I take that deep breath and jump.
Because what is life if you don’t learn from your mistakes,
And how can you experience them, with nothing at stake?

Friends 

I lie in the clouds and let the night sky embrace me.
Stars far and wide is all my eyes see,
To realise all that you are and ever would be,
Is like a dream come true.
Friends, the stars that connect to you.
Together you’re a constellation never broken.
I give you this key as a token,
Of my appreciation for all you’ve done for me.
You truly deserve a branch in this family tree,
This is what friends are supposed to be.

What is a friend?

I lie here, shivering in the cold,
Hands stretched with nothing and noone to hold.
Death seems alot more real than this pavement,
In debt to life and I’m missing all the payments.
It’s Monday but who would have thought this day meant,
Just another word in this sentence, just another statement.
Eventually it accumulates to promises never kept, even to the end.
Then you question your life, what really is a friend?

The ex

We call you an ex although you weren’t an experiment.
You are an ex but you were an experience,
That I will never forget, that I will hold dear.
For you my dear, will never disappear.
From my thoughts, heart, life or existence,
You’re persistence
To remain in my mind throughout the pain
And release these pleasurable endorphins in my brain
Is commendable.
I wish the term ex was amendable,
Because you deserve the world,
And my heart yearns for you to be my girl.
And my toes yearn to curl from the rhythm in your hips,
And my heart yearns to skip from the touch of your lips.
