I envy© Letters From Alex
that get to
Have you ever been told how beautiful you look every morning?
Have you ever been told how selfless you are even when you’re being selfish?
Have you ever been told how your smile can light up the night?
Have you ever been told how special you are even when you feel so ordinary?
Have you ever been told a lie?© Letters From Alex
If we lived© Letters From Alex
in a world
I would look
in your eyes
what you see
Don’t regret the things you do.
Regret the things you don’t do.
I’m afraid© Letters From Alex
to use “he”
in my poems
I’m not ready
I miss your arms wrapped around my body.© Letters From Alex
I miss your hands running up and down my spine.
I miss your lips pressed against mine.
Please come over and hold me and make me forget about the world.
Please suffocate me and promise me you won’t let go.
I want you to hug me so tight that I can’t even breathe right.
I’m ready to die in your arms, because I’m finally home again.
I will not love you© Letters From Alex
till death do us part.
I will love you
till the end of time.
Please don’t die.© Letters From Alex
I’m still breathing.
my heart’s still beating.
We are strangers for now,
but I have hope
things will go back to
how they used to be,
back to when
things were simpler.
Whether it’s a year
I will wait for you
we have so much more
to live for.
So, please stay alive
while I’m still alive.
I will not live my life
to the fullest
until I have lived my life
