Poetry On Odyssey: Baiting The Heart

Love Is Deep, Love Is Painful.

Poetry On Odyssey: Baiting The Heart

There are many things he yearns to say,

His gentle organ forever fumbling and beating fast;

Why does it seem his words get shoved away?

Alas, it appears he is out of her caste.

Heart ripped from the lure,

At home, he feels gazing at your eyes, mesmerized with many stars a twinkle,

Thinking, “have I finally found the cure?”

Brushing, brushing cheek so soft, all except her charming crinkle.

You, my dear, are some kind of delightful:

Taking a leap in loving somebody,

Adoring your intellect, a wildflower so insightful;

Expression so deep and binary, the world sees your warmest soul.

Many a time I’ve promised to be your knight;

Painting and preserving these memories in the vault,

Out of my grasp, another love is slain; much like Juliet at her height,

Often confessed that love is painful, so darling I’m hurting, and it's my fault.

Alas, as accustomed they part ways—time for another fresh start,

Through it all nothing but façade and weakness;

Wanting to be with her was simply baiting the heart.

Marching Through March

Some appreciation for the month of March.


I love the entire year. Well, for the most part. I'm not a big fan of Winter, but even then, every month has something that's pretty great. November? Thanksgiving. December? Winter Holidays. January? New Year's. February? Valentine's and Single Awareness Day. May? Existential dread during finals. But for me, March has always been my favorite month of the year, and for good reason.
