Best Poem of J. James Martinez

Today Tomorrow Together Through Forever

I don't know
now
how
I am to be
because
it hurts
to breathe
to see
the sun rise
to know
when the sun dies
I am here
and you are
only near
not beside
you're not mine
outside this troubled
mind
this gold mine
of wasted time
I want
so selfishly
sea shell
sand castle queen
with me
heal
the pain when I breathe
shake and show me
it easy to see
god rising from the sea
sleep
in my palm
inhale soft each bomb
blow me
away
today
tomorrow
together
through
forever

Read the full of Today Tomorrow Together Through Forever

Second Time

Hesitant
Reticent
Ambivalent
Intimate

The way you stumbled over yourself
Was cute and revealing
Like a catholic schoolgirl

It's the second time
I've seen your skin

Kiss
