Like an old-fashioned love song

Love me
like an old fashion love song.

Let the melody
guide our troubled hearts.

Make me forget about my worries
when I hold you
close to me.

Let’s dance
under the stars to a chorus
only you and I understand.

Let forever be the boundary
our hearts will cross without looking back.

Take my hand
and love me
like an old fashion love song.

Take my tears

Let me stand
under a starless sky
for you.
When the stars
are greedily taken,
take my tears instead.

You can whisper your wish
as close to them as you want.
You can reach out
and feel how warm they are.
You can rest,
knowing they’ve been heard.

When I stand
under a starless sky,
I will wish for your wishes.
If the stars
are greedily taken that night,
please take my tears instead.

Please don’t say it…

An empty world
an empty space
when you walked in
all that changed.
I’ve never felt so ashamed
for locking up my love in the first place.

Please don’t say you love me—
you know I already can’t.
Fighting temptation with all my heart
when you look at me like that.
Please don’t let it change
our oh so different paths…
Because if you say you love me,
then I’ll probably not say it back.

With a quick glance
while you walk by,
I show you my smile
and not what I truly hide.
I won’t admit I’m petrified.
But I’ll try to show it to you…next time.

Please don’t say you love me—
you know I already can’t.
I’m tempted with all my heart
when you look at me like that.
Please don’t let it change
this oh so complicated fact…

Because
if you say, “you love me”,
then I know
I’ll say it back.


Quick note: What caught my attention was the boy’s shadow. I tried to write from the girl’s perspective.

The song: “Please don’t say you love me” by Gabrielle Aplin inspired this poem

Not out loud

Time wanders around outside—
inviting your imagination to come play.
I call it day-dreaming.
You call it, “a creative time-out.”

You always ask
what I’m thinking.
But I’m too busy 
trying to answer,
what inspires you,
what you dream about, and
why I love the real you.

Just when I draw an answer,
your whispered wink tells me,
not out loud.”
