Maybe I wasn’t supposed to be
feeling this way,
Because maybe, just maybe
We just thought that it was meant to be
When it should never have started
To begin with.


On our way out

One day, I walked past a road
Then get stuck in a tunnel of black
Real black darkness,
Sadness, therein.
And on the mid-road of the tunnel
I saw those eyes speaking red
Glaring fumes of sadness in bed
I saw his empty chest; his heart being taken out
By a monster that had disappeared way past;
A memory which haunted his dearest heart
I reached for my heart; though still bleeding
And touched his face as I gave him my heart
With glimmering bliss;
And on that tunnel we walked out both
We felt the light beaming in our faces
Suddenly our breathe were warm
We felt life again.
Love was there again.
Love has always been there.
I looked at my chest, it was empty.
I had no heart. It was already his.
It was his, in the first place.

On our way out

In Your Eyes, I Melt

One afternoon,
me and a wonderful poet Ms. Arvhee
of the Blog
In My Metaphorical Room
wrote a Poetry Duet.

It was my first  time, it was her second time.
Now it’s time to rhyme :

In Your Eyes I Melt
A Poetry Duet by:
Maria Elena Bitare and Ms. Arvhee

I said hello, you turned and waved
Like a love that had me saved
Then you looked into my eyes
And rescued me with your fire

ArVhee 01:
Beneath that love
and celebrated feast
Silent, blindly veined
Lives, lets and bets

Swayed and still
Touch and feel
Once lost now found
Once broken now whole

ArVhee 02:
Equivocal, they’ve in common
two around one
whatever we must own
cannot be fathomed

Lena03 (End)
I’m bound to know you
We’re coming to dreamland
Caught and now set free
Love that’s meant to be

(the end)

I had a great time, thanks Ate Arvhee 🙂
