I Won'T Tell 'Em Your Name - Poem by gina layog


Dare I say your name, only in dreams, sweet delight,
Daylight reigns, this crime remains, sweet misery, guilty reality,
Amid this empty wasteland, its you I crave, your name rhymes with save
Aqua azure waters flowing, filling these deep crevices, flushed and enflamed
Veiled, concealed, never to reveal your name from this flowering lips
(that blooms for you)
Veins afire, alive, arouse coursing through this vessel, you're my bane and my pain! !
Into the night, I wishly whisper goodnight(just like the movie Benjamin Button) to you,
In the hopes that you'd do the same, do you know my name?
Do I really deserve your smile, do you hear me? my laugh, my sigh,
Deep in my heart, every sight of you, I treasure with pleasure,
Beyond the vast space, beyond time's grasp, unmeasurable,
Barely containing this breathless heart, beating, beseeching your name
I yield into the vacuum of your iridescent blue star,
I whisper sweet surrender to you, as I curled underneath your arms
Hear me, hold me, lead me to your home,
Hide me there, here by your side, don't leave me alone,
Let me live, come alive, to strive and survive,
Lettering your name into my heart, leaving me forever with your name
