I Should Have Kissed You Mine (Spoken word poetry)

I Should Have Kissed You Mine

I never realized love could hurt so much
until I saw you walk away
it hurt so much ‘cos I was too proud, too proud to tell you I love you, I just kissed you without saying a word
I thought that kiss should have sealed the deal, instead it broke us apart
I should have poured my heart out, instead of pretending ’twas nothing
I should have said I love you, instead of letting you go

and when friends asked about you I pretended to be happy
but truth is, just the mere mention of your name broke me into pieces, shattered me
and there is nothing I can do, but just think of you and what to do with a life without you
‘cos when I think of you, I think of the day I let you go
I let you go without fighting a good damn fight
I should have said I love you, instead of letting you go

and it may be too late to say, but i’ll say it anyway
I am sorry for kissing you without telling you why
I am sorry for letting you walk away instead of stopping you
I am sorry for giving up on you without even trying
I am sorry, I should have told you I love you, when I had the chance

now I am too late, too late a hero, so to say
how could i let it happen so fast?
I waited, yes, just waited, I thought waiting was enough
I thought waiting will make you come back
I thought waiting will be my only chance to finally tell you how I feel
but baby waiting wasn’t enough
I should have told you I love you, when I had the chance

I should have kissed you mine, instead of kissing you goodbye
I should have asked you out, but I did not,
I was too young, too dumb to make the bold move, too silly to take the big leap
I should have loved you when you were with me
I should have told you I love you, when I had the chance

it’s been said many times
a house is not a home
it’s just a dwelling place
to get through days

it’s been said many times
a home is made up of
a loving father, a caring mother
and kids to share

yet, through and through
over the years, over time
we’ve witnessed, homes
crumble down

and for most they say
it’s the father, not so loving
or the mother, not so caring
which leaves the kids scuffling

but i say my dear
my home is with you
regardless of
no matter what

My Love

My Love

for what else is life without you ’till the end of our days?
for what else is love if it’s not you i will hold on tight as we age?
for what else is dreaming if it’s not ’bout wishing you around?
for what else is hoping if it’s not you i adore the most?

my love, i promise to be with you until our dying days
i swear to love you even if you become the most annoying human being
i vow to hold you closer to my heart wherever we go
and with all my remaining strength, i will serve you even then

for what else is growing old if you will not be there with me?
for what else is the beauty of retirement if you are not beside me watching the sunset?
for what else is solitude if it’s not in seclusion with you?
for what else is the joy of becoming grandparents if your not a part of it?

my love, i promise to make my life forever yours and build my dreams around you
i swear to love you more than any metaphors could ever express
i vow to forever be the woman that you see now in your eyes

for what else is happiness if we lose our spark?
for what else is laughter if we don’t laugh together?
for what else is family if it’s not with being with you?

and so my love, give me your hand, and I will give you forever
i promise to love you with my whole heart with a passion that can’t be expressed in words, only in kisses, glances, and years of fun and adventure with you by my side

i could be anything you want me to be
i always say, and why not?
i could be a woman with magic powers,
i could fly to where you are
in my black cloak and pointed hat
on a broomstick
wouldn’t that be fun?
i could cast a spell on you,
with my magic and sorcery
and why not?
i could hum a silent chant
for i desire you with all my heart
even when we are apart
but just so you know
i could make your life high and low
so, keep me, please do
or i’ll be wherever you go

i am fascinating, beautiful, alluring, beguiling
and i could be anything you want me to be

i fear there is more confusion than certainty
is my lack of discernment coming our way?

i fear there is more hurt than healing
do i lack empathy to perceive how you’re feeling?

i fear there is more pain than ease
is my trepidation hindering our peace?

i fear there is more sadness than solace
do i miss the signs or am i just clueless?

i fear there won’t be you, needing me
i fear…

Let’s hold on tight as we watch with delight
The sun’s blinding light dancing against the skyline
Let’s kiss our sweetest kiss, feel the warmth of the sun
Passing through every edge, every corner of the window

Let’s write the sweetest, most passionate lyrical verse
In multiple metaphors and crazy hyperbole
As the sun’s colors dance elegantly upon the
Reflection of your endearing and charming eyes

Let’s sing an enchanting and magical melody of love
On top of our lungs, like the world is yours and mine
Enjoying every beat, every chorus, every chant
As we keep an eye on the sun’s vibrant glow

Baby, let’s stop the clock hold on tight watch with delight
The sun’s blinding light dancing against the skyline
Reminding us that without each other, life would be like
A world without sunshine, without poetry, without melody

And when the sun is out, let’s enjoy basking together
In the afterglow of our love

I Look For You

I Look For You

in a land where magic happens
where supernatural forces 
make impossible things possible,
such as making people disappear
or controlling events in nature
i look for you…

in a land where fairy tales are true
where “once upon a time” is now
where princesses, talking animals,
evil queens, witches, and goblins
live in perfect harmony
i look for you

in a land where the past and future collide
where technology meets nature at its finest
where humans and androids are buddies
where homes are flying up in the sky
and the land below is nothing but
a reflection of a blissful life
i look for you

i look for you anywhere everywhere all the time

you whisper “i love you baby” in my ear

“your voice is warm and tender” and

“when you put your arms around me, 

you let me know there’s nothing in this world i can’t do.”

‘cos “i’ve known it from the moment that we met

no doubt in my mind where you belong”

yes you belong only to me “and i want to spend my life with you”

baby, “i never loved someone the way that i love you”

you whisper “i will be loving you ’til we’re 70”

my heart skips a beat, my heart flutters

my mind screams of forever, a forever in time

“so it goes some things are meant to be”

baby, “this is our fate, i’m yours” 

“you’re my end and my beginning”

“you’ll always be a part of me i’m part of you indefinitely”

you whisper “marry me”, the sweetest most endearing

thing i ever heard my whole life had, and so i said yes, for 

“in your heart, i see the start of every night and every day”

so, baby stay with me, live with me,

i really would love to hear you whisper in my ear

how much you love me, always and forever

This is a Cento, I saw this form in kate’s blog, and I thought its a fun form. (https://aroused.blog/2021/09/30/love-story/) Also, Punam’s take on this is brilliant (https://paeansunpluggedblog.wordpress.com/2021/09/29/a-lyrical-love-story/) so I gave it a try.

cento is a poetical work wholly composed of verses or passages taken from other authors. I chose to take verses from different songs as indicated below:

Loneliness Too

With almost 8 billion people in the world, how could anyone be lonely, and yet any of us may feel “transient” loneliness though and that’s undeniable.
Loneliness Too

can we measure love by numbers?
can we tell when it’s less or more than enough?
can we scream in great despair when hurt?
can we wallow in deep agony when in pain?

can we measure loneliness by numbers?
can we cry in volume when it’s too much?
can we silence our hearts when we could bear no more?
can we tamper our soul when it’s too heavy?

maybe “yes”
maybe “no”
i really don’t know
my dear know that my love for you is immeasurable, not by numbers,
not even by deeds,
nor by an act of kindness

i love you with the kind of love i know
i love you with the amount of love my heart could carry, and that’s why my love
my heart screams loneliness when i am not with you, the kind of loneliness that can never be calculated

by numbers or by volume
my loneliness is mine, and mine alone to feel
my loneliness is present, evident even in
the most endearing, the most passionate,
the most romantic love poem i write
because my pen is bleeding in pain
because my muse is crying in vain,
because my mind is spinning,
and my heart stops beating love
