I’d Rather Risk Sharing

Am I in too deep?

I’m always thinking of you

What is going on inside me?

It’s just my point of view

There are people in this world

They capture your essence

Even the grown man again becomes the adolescent

Don’t get me wrong

It feels good to express this

It’s not everyday this happens

A special someone who gives you bliss

We begin to ask questions

When reason alone cannot solve

But it’s matters of the heart

That must be resolved

We question our motives

Why our feelings run so deep

Allowing ourselves to open up

Sometimes it’s best to take that leap

I’d rather not lock down my emotions

Protect my ego and it’s trappings

Live my life as I really am

In all of my happenings

Better to be honest

Present the true self you wish to be

We attract what we project

At least that’s what I see

You might think it’s not worth it

Controlling your heart by keeping it still

The consequences of such action

Are imposed upon us by our will

You will never achieve any happiness

This resolution imprisons the Soul

I’d rather meet my world freely

Not surrender my ego to control

I’d rather risk sharing my true feelings

Than never to have let you know

This would be more tragic

To conceal with a fear to show

I don’t fear the stigma of rejection

I don’t just throw my feelings about

I am secure and hold myself accountable

Despite how things might turn out

Your Smile is my Kryptonite

A grin

A smirk

Those beautiful eyes casting that lurk

Your many features impart beauty

Your eyes and your face

But your smile is what I embrace

When that sparkle in your eyes shine

I’m all in –

I thrive

I long to touch your skin –

I strive

I tell you this

So that you will know

My honest feelings

I have to show

I might be sentimental

On a limb I put myself out

So here I am reaching

Sensing you may have some doubt

Yet when I see you smile

The empath in me comes alive

Something I cannot control

Something I cannot deprive

When I see you smile

My heart reunites

Opens me up

Your smile is my kryptonite

tu sonrisa es mi kriptonita

The Quicksand of the Soul

Attachment

The quicksand of the soul

Siddhartha mustered this insight

So many, many years ago

How do I know?

How do I relate?

Do I make this up?

Do I confabulate?

How many paths?

How many ways?

We can seduce ourselves

Clinging to this fantasy gaze

Fear not my compatriots

The wisdom comes from age

Tempered in the forge of reality

Allow the mind to disengage

And this is what I exclaim

I think of you at sunrise

I think of you at sunset

I think of you in between

Wanting to know more about you since we met

I don’t normally act like this

It is not really like me

Somehow someway I’m stirred inside

It’s something I think you can see

You are the most beautiful person I know

It’s not for what you wear

Not what’s on the surface counts most

But for me it’s what’s on the inside-

This for me is my fresh air

You might call me passionate

You might call me this name

I express what I feel

And this is what I exclaim

DCG

Que al amanecer que al atardecer le entre ganas de saber más acerca de usted desde que nos conocimos normalmente no actúa como es realmente no me gustaria de alguna manera alguna manera yo estoy revuelto en su interior es algo que me parece se ve que es pienso pienso pienso más persona hermosa sé que no es por lo que use no lo que está en la superficie cuenta con la mayoría pero para mí es lo que está en el interior, esta para mi es mi aire fresco le puede llamada me apasionado podría llamarme este nombre expresar lo que siento y esto es lo que yo exclamar

Tap the Fire in my Soul

Inspire me to become better

Tap the fire in my soul

Unleash my potential

This has always been a goal

But for me you make it easy

I’m touched and I tell you in this way

I am thankful for your influence

I am a better man than I was yesterday

I embrace these gifts

Lavish me in splendor

The scent of your hair and the touch of your skin

Makes my heart tender

I am truly blessed

My outlook in life

I greet my opportunities

I discard my strife

I welcome the Day

And what I can bring

What I can provide

An emotional wellspring

Supongo que un colegial yo siempre voy a ser

Sólo estoy sosteniendo el

pensamiento de ustedes me hace sonreír

Mi corazón late más fuerte,

como creo que te das cuenta de

que he estado deseando decirle

a veces no sé cómo

tan sólo voy a escribir mis sentimientos

y decirte en un poema

mis sentimientos son verdaderos

mis intenciones son puras

sólo quiero mostrarle

sólo quiero que usted sepa

que no sé por qué

no tengo una respuesta

únicamente comparto este corazón

para descubrir

quizá podamos conectar

quizá podamos confiar uno al otro

no puedo evitar lo que siento yo

supongo que un colegial yo siempre voy a estar

cuando pienso en ti

WikiPsalm #Fifteen

In arrogance I am aroused by my feelings

I strongly submit my way is best

I demonstrate this devotion

And so I manifest

I stand on the right side of history

I stand correct in my assessment

But what the impetuous youth declares

Won’t clear the stage for the average adolescent

Being young won’t give you wisdom

Without time, without test

The highest matters

Should not be decided and put to rest
