When We Were Us 

By John R. Hernandez, Jr. © 2009

Tell me why my heart yearns so
when I hear your words so deep within?
It’s like you never went away, like
you’ve never been here with me always.
Tell me why I don’t feel so cold anymore?
Even though way deep inside I am dying to feel your warmth again.
To let me know I am still alive in your heart, in your eyes, in your lips.
So many times I’ve heard those footsteps
and pictured you beside me, here.
I’ve heard and felt the comfort of your touch
once again, like when we were us.


What Do You Think Of Me 

By John R. Hernandez, Jr. © 2009

When you hear me breathe in the solitude of your space and thoughts? Do you wish I was holding your hand, touching you, kissing you? Just near enough to make you feel like never before, like that first moment, that first spoken word.

What do you think of me when you’re in the presence of the multitude? Do you wish it would be me walking up to you instead of him to wrap your arms around? To never want to let go, to caress you breathlessly; to posses your heart and sing for joy.


So Cold  By John R. Hernandez, Jr. © 2009

I don’t know, sometimes you get  used to the waiting so much that, when it happens, it doesn’t matter much to you anymore like it did back then. When you were lying naked in a pool of tears; like when you had to struggle hard to catch another breath. Like when coming face to face with the reality meant having to slowly pull away the knife. That was left inside of you so cold and filled with those tormenting words of betrayal.

  4. I do agree with all of the ideas you’ve presented in your post. They’re really convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very short for beginners. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
