1. All I Need
When I first saw you,
I saw perfection.
When I got to know you,
I saw pain.
When I started loving you,
I saw strength.
Now…all that I see
Is what means everything to me.
What I see
Is the strength to go on.
What I see
Is the courage to do anything.
What I see
Is the love to be around anyone.
What I see
Is everything I need.
—Asher C. Childress
2. Silence Is Golden
They say silence is Golden,
I believe it is true,
Because in that Golden silence,
my thoughts occur of you.
You are the flame in my candle
that lights the darkness of my room,
You are the scented flowers
that makes my heart full bloom.
You are the butterflies
that flicker in my stomach all day long,
When I know I will be holding you
before my day is done.
You are the stars that shimmer and shine,
You light up the skies above
In this Golden silence
it’s truly you I love.
You are the thunder of the night,
your lightning strikes whenever,
Into my soul that makes me whole,
and excites my heart forever.
You are my paradise, my oceans wide,
My mountains standing tall,
So in this Golden Silence
I love you most of all.
3. I Love You So
I think about you all the time.
You’re always in my head.
I reread every text you send
And remember what you said.
I’m always here for you,
Every hour of the day.
I’ll never let you down
Or hurt you in any way.
I love you more than anything.
You’re like the air I breathe,
And when I look around,
I know you’re all I need.
My sunshine on a cloudy day.
That’s one thing that you are,
And even on the darkest nights,
You are my brightest star.
4. If Only She Knew
She has her own special way
Of turning around my terrible day.
She makes all the bad things go away
The second that she says hey.
And when I look into her eyes,
I see pure beauty with no disguise.
Just a glance at her makes my heartbeat rise.
I know for a fact that these feelings aren’t lies.
If only she knew
How much my love for her grew,
Maybe, just maybe, we could start something new,
And then I’d never feel blue.
And if beauty were inches, she’d go on for miles.
I’d better catch her before I go out of style.
I’m going to let my heart be my dial
So I can tell her what I’ve been feeling for a while.
5. Colours Of Romance
Calm the winds as angels sing.
Lovers’ tune and flowers bring
little buds caressed by dew
sending pretty thoughts of you.
Hearts entwined with heav’nly bliss
spell the most romantic kiss,
yearning for the sweetest place
nowhere less in your embrace.
Ringing bells of autumn air,
whispers of my love and care
set the mood, begin the dance
paint the colours of romance.
Inside out, your beauty shows.
Inside me, this feeling grows.
‘Tis your hair, your voice, your smiles,
’tis your most angelic eyes.
Sparkling stars will soon reveal
shifting breeze that ever will
hold the sentimental light.
Let the love consume the night.
Nevermore will dreams expire.
Keep it burning, guard the fire.
Hold my hand and don’t let go.
Feel my heart and you will know.
Amber-hued the sunset sails,
leaving dust of loving trails,
chanting words that say I do.
Princess, I’m in love with you.
6. Hidden Feelings
Hiding the feelings that grow stronger
the time that we are apart feels even longer
the clock ticks and the cold breeze flows
as for me I know where my heart glows
covering the smile you cause me to make
it is this nervousness that I must break
these hidden feelings I must hide no more
as I walk up the path that leads to your door
ringing the bell hearing the chime
I’m not going to let you go this time
building the courage admitting how I feel
is this a dream or is this actually real
my heart is pounding, beating out of my chest
because you my love is life’s big test
7. Hand In Hand
It’s amazing how easy I can make my heart jump
In my throat I felt a lump
I froze for a second
Just because you beckoned
You called for me to grab your hand
And before I knew it we were hand in hand
Even though it was a game
I don’t think I could ever feel the same
It was too perfect
For me to deserve it
It probably won’t happen again
‘Cause we are and always will be friends
I never thought it would work
Till that little jerk
Now I’m thinking maybe
But I’m still a little hazy
I saw those looks
Didn’t you see me smirk?
Then on to 7th period
We had to fit 15 into a square
And your face was right there
It was right next to mine
Our bodies pressed together yet we stayed silent as a mime
Then on the couch
We both sat with a little slouch
Your sister called for you
But you would not go
She tried to pull you away
And that’s when you reached my way
You called for my hand
And there we were
Hand in hand
8. Why I Chose You
I’ve always underestimated myself,
Always tried to humble myself,
But when it came to true affection,
Settling was out of the question.
I used to settle for the ones in my league,
Continually thinking that my game was weak.
So what if she’s just alright?
It’s just a girl, am I not right?
But this is love we’re talking about,
A force larger than all doubts.
This girl could be my wife.
She could reflect my entire life.
And so when I saw the perfect one,
I thought, it’s her or none.
Might as well give it a shot.
For once I’ll be the man I’m not.
I chose her because she was the best.
I fell in love with her; God knows the rest.
Convincing myself I’m more than a mess,
God gave me perfection and nothing less.
9. In Love With You
You’re always in my thoughts.
You’re always in my dreams,
And so a life without you would
Just tear away at the seams.
It’s you who keeps me up all night,
The one getting me through the day,
And so it seems to me that there
Is only one thing left to say.
I don’t know how to say it,
To make it sound so true,
So I’ll say it how I feel it.
I’m completely in love with you.
10. To Be In Love To be in love
Is to touch with a lighter hand.
In yourself you stretch, you are well.
You look at things
Through his eyes.
A cardinal is red.
A sky is blue.
Suddenly you know he knows too.
He is not there but
You know you are tasting together
The winter, or a light spring weather.
His hand to take your hand is overmuch.
Too much to bear.
You cannot look in his eyes
Because your pulse must not say
What must not be said.
Shuts a door-
Is not there_
Your arms are water.
And you are free
With a ghastly freedom.
You are the beautiful half
Of a golden hurt.
You remember and covet his mouth
To touch, to whisper on.
Oh when to declare
Is certain Death!
Oh when to apprize
Is to mesmerize,
To see fall down, the Column of Gold,
Into the commonest ash.
11. I Watch Him From Afar
I watch him from afar
At lunch we walk, separated by a bar
You don’t know how much my eyes follow you
I know you can’t tell but what I say is true
I want to tell you everything
But in the end I tell you nothing
I always try to talk to you
Even if it’s something simple like the sky is blue
My eyes follow you everywhere
I just look for the flow of your hair
I look for that way you walk
and the way you move when you talk
I try to walk by
and possibly get to say hi
It’s almost like a game of tag
But you always seem to lag
I wonder if you watch me too
I’ve seen you look when I do
But neither of us look away
Till we’re called a different way
But I always go back
It’s how I separate myself from the pack
12. Just Feeling
Firm, dark skin
and smooth, creamy skin.
A look, a laugh,
feelings linger in the air.
A soft caress, a simple touch,
I’m in another world.
Oblivious to everything
Deep brown eyes,
hands clasped around mine.
reminding me of fireflies.
Knowing but not knowing,
showing and glowing.
Surrendering to the moment.
13. I Would Like To Meet You Here
That’s what the note said,
“Please meet me here.”
I wonder who will come
Or even if she’s near.
I arrive at the spot
on a hill, by a tree.
I wonder who will come,
probably someone who likes me?
At last she comes,
my eyes pleasantly confirmed.
The one I had a crush on.
The conclusions I jumped to, affirmed.
She sits next to me
and shyly says, “Hi.”
I reply back, sounding just as shy.
As we watch the sun set,
she’s now in my arms.
I know now that she’s mine
with all her love and charms.
14. I Realized
The sunshine appears to be brighter.
My heart feels a bit lighter.
More beautiful are the flowers appearing.
This new feeling my soul is also sharing.
The mornings have now grown cheerful.
Every moment seems to be more colorful.
Like the darkness of the night is torn,
It feels like all my pains are gone.
What is this new feeling
That I fall every day but I’m still healing?
Standing by on this adorable shore,
I’ve realized that I seriously love you more.
15. Feelings For You
Sometimes I wonder how I feel about you,
Scared of these feelings because it’s still new
I catch myself thinking of the best way to share,
Hoping you’ll return my confession showing you care
And then I catch myself again… and drag my thoughts back to reality
I am back at square one, does this just happen to me?
Poems are so stupid I swear I would never do this
But this is YOU, and you aren’t like anyone I have met
How much longer do I have to write, can I tell you yet?
When I come back from my thoughts I feel more secure
But then I sleep… and the dreams of you occur
The dreams I have of you are so vivid and clear
I feel TRUE happiness inside and that there is nothing to fear
People say dreams have underlying meanings and not to ignore them
I say we both know what they mean and now I want you to hear
Hear what I am about to say to you, feel it with my body, see it in my face
Hear it in my words and tone when we converse
I love you! I love you more than I ever thought I could
Be with me always and be loved like you should
16. Love Of My Life
I fell in love with her smile;
It’s what makes mine.
She brings chills to my eyes;
I’ve never seen a more beautiful sight.
She changed my life;
She’s the only reason I’m alive.
I love our connection,
But I don’t think she’ll be mine.
She is like an addiction;
I need her in my life.
She was there when no one else was;
She’s a gift and a prize.
She may be very pretty,
But nothing like the great beauty on the inside.
She lightens up my world,
And I love her to the sky.
Wherever life takes me,
She is the love of my life.
17. Falling For You
Every time we’re together,
I feel complete.
You show me love.
Falling for you.
Every time you hold me,
I feel protected.
I feel like I am in heaven.
Falling for you.
Every time you kiss me,
I want more.
My heart beats fast.
Falling for you.
Every time I see you smile,
I smile every time we’re together.
I’ve fallen even more.
Falling for you.
When you say I love you,
I know it’s true.
I love you, too.
Falling for you.
Can’t believe this happened.
You are my angel.
You save me.
Falling for you.
—Casey An Mccarra
18. My Own Little Story
All I used to feel was blue.
I used to think love itself was a lie
because of all of the fires I walked through
and all the tears that I cried.
I used to be quite the stubborn one.
I suppose in a lot of ways I still am.
But I used to hide my heart away from the sun,
because I was scared of getting burned all over again.
I used to swear love just wasn’t worth the fight.
No one would love me; I was far too blue.
You’d think there’s no changing that, right?
But then…my love…there was you.
You made me feel like I was more than enough.
You turned my heart into a lilac purple sky.
The cage around my heart was much too tough,
but I suppose the key was hidden in your eyes.
This fairytale of you and I has not been traditional.
Let’s be honest, it’s been a hot mess.
But the love that I have for you is unconditional;
and nothing has ever made my heart beat for you any less.
What we have here will one day be quite the story,
and there’s no complaints here from me.
So don’t you run and don’t you worry,
because you’ll always be my cup of tea.
—Katy A Brown
19. Love At First Sight
Like a bird upon a branch,
She sat so elegantly;
I knew right from the start
She was the one for me.
Blonde hair blowing in the wind,
She looked so beautiful;
A smile could light the sky,
Together our hearts strings pull.
Her eyes twinkled like a star
Or diamonds in the sky;
With her I could lay forever,
Watching the world go by.
Love at first sight it was
As our hearts began to sync;
Like a hand into a glove,
I reached out my arm to link.
I thought, “She’s too good for me.”
It seems too good to be true;
Could she be the one at last
Who says those words “I do”?
A story of love we will tell
About love at first sight
When my heart fell for yours
On that cold winter’s night.
Love is when you’d do anything.
Love is your best friend;
Love is the key to life,
Love is until the end.
Like two doves we will be,
Together in all we do;
Till death do us part,
I will always love you.
—Lee W Barker
20. Poem to First Love
To have been told “I love you” by you could well be, for me,
the highlight of my life, the best feeling, the best peak
on my feeling graph, in the way that the Chrysler building
might not be the tallest building in the NY sky but is
the best, the most exquisitely spired, or the way that
Hank Aaron’s career home-run total is not the highest
but the best, the one that signifies the purest greatness.
So improbable! To have met you at all and then
to have been told in your soft young voice so soon
after meeting you: “I love you.” And I felt the mystery
of being that you, of being a you and being
loved, and what I was, instantly, was someone
who could be told “I love you” by someone like you.
I was, in that moment, new; you were 19; I was 22;
you were impulsive; I was there in front of you, with a future
that hadn’t yet been burned for fuel; I had energy;
you had beauty; and your eyes were a pale blue,
and they backed what you said with all they hadn’t seen,
and they were the least ambitious eyes I’d known,
the least calculating, and when you spoke and when
they shone, perhaps you saw the feeling you caused.
Perhaps you saw too that the feeling would stay.
21. The Lady That Walks By
Her beauty, radiant.
Her eyes speak before her lips.
Her thoughts? If only I knew.
Every step she takes as if she walks on air.
Gracefully treading on thin ice, those are my emotions, love.
I pray you fall in!
An emotional roller coaster every time I lay my eyes on you.
I see you walk by, and all I can think about is if you notice me.
I speak these words, but only I hear them.
Your hands, I long to hold.
Your embrace I long to have.
Words I speak from my heart, words I write to you.
Though these words are spoken by mortal man, they will live forever in my heart.
For a mortal man has found the divine…
which is love…
which is her..
One day I will say these words to her.
Until then, she walks by and I say nothing.
I am yours as the summer air at evening is
Possessed by the scent of linden blossoms,
As the snowcap gleams with light
Lent it by the brimming moon.
Without you I’d be an unleafed tree
Blasted in a bleakness with no Spring.
Your love is the weather of my being.
What is an island without the sea?
I’m standing on the edge
My toes hanging off the side
The wind blows sweetly
Rustling my hair
And relaxing me
Causing me to lean towards the void
All around me
I hear his voice whispering
“You’re beautiful” and
“I’ll always be there for you”
I close my eyes
And I can feel his hand in mine
And his arms wrapped around me
Then my head is filled with memories
Of his lips
Pressed against mine
In the softest manner
I’ve fallen in love with him
And it’s the most exuberant feeling
The air rushes around me
And makes me lightheaded
It’s like I’m flying
And nothing can stop me
All I hear is his voice
Telling me I’m the only one for him
I hit the ground
Which seems to materialize underneath me
And for months I lay there
People try to help me up
But I don’t let them
All I can think of
How could he make me fall for him
When he had no intention
Of catching me
Then you come along
You mend my brokenness
And help me to my feet
And before I know it
I’m on top of the building again
And yet again
The wind blows
Trying to push me off the edge
But this time
I brace myself
I don’t want to fall
And get hurt
A second time
I try to back away from the edge
But something stops me
I hear your voice
Calling to me from below
“I will never break your heart
I move towards the side of the building
I picture the times we’ve talked for hours
The times you’ve held me when I cried
The times you stuck by my side
When no one else would
“I’ll never hurt you like he did”
You whisper this in my ear
As I drift off to sleep one night
I never remembered until now
And yet again
The feeling is amazing
Only this time
It doesn’t end with brokenness
Instead I land in your arms
In your heart
24. Secret Admirer
I’ve never been the type to say what I feel
So basically I keep everything inside
And with you it was no different
I want to tell you, believe me I’ve tried
But there’s part of me that just can’t take that chance
So I doubt that you’ll ever know
Which may be fine with you, but it’s hurting me
I choose not to show it though
I guess I’m your secret admirer
That name seems to fit just right
I don’t know what I like about you
But you’re on my mind, day and night
Maybe it’s the way you look
So sexy I can’t get enough
Or how you make me feel when you come around
I instantly forget all other stuff
Maybe it’s the way you say my name
Or maybe it’s the way you smile
Then again it might just be everything
Getting to know you seems worth my while
But I guess I’ll never know what it is
My true feelings I could never reveal to you
I’ll just admire you from a distance
I’m not sure what else there is to do
25. It’s All About Her
I see her every day,
But today, there is something special about her,
Something I haven’t seen before.
The glow on her face,
The twinkle in her eye
The glitter on her cheek
The secret in her smile
And as I sit here, right in front of her
I can’t take my eyes of her,
Her perfection has stunned my thoughts,
Looking at her makes my heart thunder,
Her sparkling glance makes my breaths shorten.
Every time we meet,
I feel as if we are meeting for the first time,
Butterflies swarm in my stomach,
Oh! The first look,
Where she is standing by the reception,
Noticing me – noticing her,
And then she smiles and my world stops.
There’s so much around me to look at,
But all I can see is her,
The way she smiles,
The way she laughs,
The face that she would make,
When she watches something emotional.
Flashing through her glasses,
Her soft tear would fall on her cheek,
I gently wipe her tears off,
And her cheeks go red, she blushes.
Sometimes I really wonder,
Did I stand a chance to persuade her on my own?
What would have happened if she didn’t make the first move?
Maybe destiny does exist.
It does for me.
