If Only ( A poem by James J )

If i could love you with every fiber of my being 

If i could give you every ounce of my passion 

If i could protect you with every cell in my body

Would it be enough?

If i showed you all of my scars

If i confessed all of my lies 

If i unlocked all of my doors  

would it be enough?

If i wrote you the most beautiful letter

If i sang you the prettiest song

If i painted you a masterpiece 

would it be enough? 

If i gave you everything 

would i be enough?

 

 

 

 

 

Live for Life

We must seek experiences that change us

So that our souls may blossom

We must do our best to live

So that we may learn along the way

We must learn to love and accept

So that we may feel loved and accepted

We must stop looking at what divides us

So that we may find what unites us

We must see life as a journey

So that we may smile at the end of it

 

 

 

Burn In Love Tonight ( A Poem By James J )

My soul is on fire with desire

My scars are burning as your lips press against my chest 

The chains that have held me prisoner for so long

Are being unlocked and unwound 

 

I can feel your breath all over me 

Filling me with a rush of passion 

I could hold you in my arms 

for an infinite eternity 

 

I envy the hearts that you’ve adored before me 

You could tear me apart, piece by piece 

You could give me a thousand scars more

And they would be my favorite tattoos 

 

Our bodies touch as our eyes hold our fears 

Your heart is safe with me love

I will protect you and adore you  

We can burn in love tonight  

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sanctity ( A Poem By James J )

Your hands open like flowers

Your eyes flutter like the breeze

Your hair sways like the leaves

Your mouth moves like the tide 

 

My heart is made of stone

My feet are rooted in the ground

My arms are bound by vines

My head is filled with mud

 

From the cracks in my heart flowers grow

From the roots in my feet the wind moves me

From the vines on my arms your leaves dance

From the tide of your lips the mud is washed away

Surrender ( A Poem By James J )

my fingertips trace the crease of your back

your hair falls down your shoulders in waves

you are a drug and i am an addict

i will overdose a thousand times and crave more

 

your lips are my escape

this world could burn in endless flames

ashes could fall and blanket the earth

i would still be lost in this heaven with you

 

my hands gently press against your chest

i feel the pounding of your heart in my palm

your fingers intertwine with mine

my lips kiss your neck as you breath me in

 

my walls have been turned to glass

you have shattered every last one of them

the floor is filled with an endless reflection

my surrender to you is absolute
