there is a boy in Ohio


Just so you know..........





There is a boy in Ohio
that got lost in your eyes
like a lit candle at noontime
a bat hidden in the midnight skies

there is a boy in Ohio
that wont sleep tonight
who does not fear
sweet dreams of you
but of being alone
with mornings light

there is a boy in Ohio
that would have traded his eyes
not for mountains of diamonds
or barrels of wine
but to go back
to where your lips met
and freeze time

there is a boy in Ohio
missing his muse
his words are short tragedy
he only thinks of you
he is tired and weak
broken and confused

there is a boy in Ohio
that waits for you
to him you are light on water
distilled from angels tears
dreamer of my dreams
conquer of my fears

the boy in Ohio is me
and sweet girl I miss you
come fill my empty heart
and I will write
all my lines for you

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
