Can We Make it Work?

There’s this picture I have of you

My perfect man, my Mr. Right

I build fantasies around this perfect man

But I forget one thing, you can’t be perfect

You are enough for me

I want us to fight

But promise me we will make up

I want to spend a day away from you

But promise you will cuddle me when you come back

I’m sorry for creating this perfect picture of you

Overseeing all the flaws that make you different

I want it all; your strength, your weakness and yourself

Stay with me and we’ll fix us

You plus me equals a relationship I want the world to know

For the sake of the good days love

Please let’s make it work

I’m Afraid You’ll Say You Love Me

I want to tell you how I’m feeling right now

But I’m afraid you’ll say you feel the same way

I want to tell you how you complete my day

How you make me feel alive inside

And how much your presence makes me feel like a queen

I’m just afraid you’ll say you feel the same way

I like you. No. I love you.

I know I do. I’ve never felt this strongly about someone

Your heartbeat matches mine

Your smile makes me gaze in awe

You’re more than I could ever ask

I want to tell you all these

I’m just afraid you’ll return the love

No, I’m not ready to tell you I love you

Because I know you’ll say you love me too

Beautiful Mess

​I’m​​ one beautiful mess

I get jealous

I throw tantrums

I come with a lot of baggage

If you can believe

Some days I feel weak

Other days I am strong

I’m stubborn and get easily irritable

I’ve been hurt so many times

Because I made the wrong choices

Met people I didn’t deserve

I’m scared of Love but I can give it to you

One thing I am not is Fake

I give you the real imperfect me

You have the freedom to take it or leave it

Accept me for me

And let us fix where we can

Because if there’s one thing I won’t accept

Is to be judged by someone as imperfect as me

I’ll give you the real me

Because I know I’m still work in progress.

One Last Time

Hold me one last time

Kiss me one last time

Let me taste your lips one last time

Let me feel your hands on my body

And let me beg for more just one last time

Say you love me one last time

Come close, I want to feel your heart beat one last time

Tell me what I want to hear just this once

Let me re-live our first night just one last time

Tell me how much you need me

Like the old days, remind me how you can’t live without me

Just this once, make love to me like you used to

Give me one more night

And let me feel how special I am

Please love me one last time

I Want a Real Man

I want a man who listens without judging

A man who will criticize but give their opinion

I want a man who can look into my eyes

And know when I’m going through a phase

I want a man who sees me at my weakest

But still thinks I’m the strongest

A man who will remind me how tough I am when I feel weak

I want a man who can shape the stubborn girl in me

Point out my mistakes without taking away my esteem

I want a man I can talk to

A man to go home to

To end my day with just the right words

A man to hold me and tell me it’s okay

I’m looking for the exact version of the man in my dreams

It’s time to wake up and re-live my reality.

I Want To Be There For You

I don’t care whether we’re together or not

I want to be there for you

I want to be your go-to person

When you feel blue

I want to listen to you

When you feel no one else understands

I want to hear about your dreams and goals

I want to be your source of strength

I want to be you shoulder

I know all this sounds cliché

But I want to be the person who

Gives you comfort when no one else can

I want to smile when you do

And cry when you do

I want to hold your hand

When you’re too tired to walk

And pick you up when you fall

I want to be the person you find comfort in

I want some peace of mind

And knowing that you’re okay will give me that

Don’t be shy to come to me when

You need someone to talk to

I don’t care about our differences

I don’t know this type of relationship

All I know is

I want to be there for you

Keep Walking

I made peace with my past

I hope I am happy

I learnt how to forgive myself

And found a solution to my troubles

I didn’t know how to deal with

The things that caused me pain

For years I’ve been fighting with myself

Searching how to heal through my aches

Finally, I hit a breakthrough

Now I know how to be happy by myself

How to be at peace with my past

I taught myself how to accept the things I lost

Including the love that was never reciprocated

He (God) helped me see things differently

He taught me how to appreciate my present

Then I put one foot before the other

And decided to walk without looking back

When life puts you down, walk

When people leave your life, walk

When you don’t know where to go, keep walking

Walk. That is the only way to let go

The only way to grow from where you are

Keep walking.

Have You Seen The Man I Love?

If you see my man, please tell him to come home 

I call him Papi I don’t know about you 

If you do, please tell him I’m waiting for him 

I’m cold and lonely 

With so much love to give 

He’s out there somewhere 

Watching and waiting 

Or perhaps pampering another’s heart 

If you see my man, 

Please let him know 

There’s a woman out there waiting for him 

She’s tall with fairly light skin 

Black eyes, short hair and a figure he’ll love 

If he won’t care for all these, 

Please tell him 

She’s got a heart of gold 

Although lonely 

Her beauty matches her brains 

She’s the ideal wife 

Please tell my man to come home 

I’ll be here waiting for him 

With all the love and care 

He won’t look for another 

©Words From Her life

Insecure

I’m sorry I get a little jealous sometimes

It’s because you are the best thing

That has ever happened

To me in a long time

I get scared of losing you

And the thought of you getting

Someone else who could make

You happier than I do scares me

I love you and my

Insecurities make me act up

I’m scared that one day

You’ll get bored and

Not want me anymore

Maybe I won’t be good enough

And I won’t be able to convince you

That I’m the same girl you wanted

I’m afraid because I know

One day I might screw up

And you will walk away

I want to continue writing

This love story with you

So please reassure me

That you are here to stay

And that no matter what

You will always be here.

I Love You

I’ve been too busy counting the stars

Wishing on shooting stars

I could not see my dreams come true

I was close to losing you

My priceless and rare gem

I’ve been looking for love in the wrong places

Chasing after the wrong people

Hoping to find happiness in hearts so cold

You were honest and real

But my favorite thing about you is

You are present.

I’m holding on to you because you are rare

The stars will always be there

So I’ll put my focus on you my love

Because you are my moon

Different and special in your own way.

No one compares to you

I promise to love you with everything I have

I’ll take care of you

Because life will not give me this chance again
