50 years later

You are just as beautiful as the 1st day I saw you.
50 years have taken all away your hair
All I can see is the trail of kisses I left behind
You are the beautiful mind
Hidden behind stoic wall
Ticking clockwork
Perfect precision
Sound logic
I see the whole universe in your eyes
The beating vortex of time
The world has not been kind to you
Dried up river of tears
Deeply entrenched on your cheeks
The underground water of your soul
Has turn into a dessert
You always wish you had your bothers looks
The tall body
The full set of hair
And a proper nose
I wish that I had stopped you back then
To tell you that you were beautiful
Even when you did not believe it
You are beautiful
Even when you don’t want hear it
But now my words are just soundless whispers to the moon
Your ear tingling when caress them
When I kiss them
When lick them as we made love
In the heat of the excitement
You would lay there
But I know you were transcendent
Our bodies unite
But in your mind
We are boundless
Formless Spirits
Swimming among the stars
Your lips press together
In every photo
You fear the world would see your jagged teeth
But I fear that the world will never get see you smile again
I can feel your anger toward me
From the sublet twitch
At the corner of your lips
I wish I can kiss the pain away
Undo the knot in your heart
The messed that I created
When I chose to walk away
I know those lips have stop answer all my phone calls
Has stop replying my massages
I cannot tell you the things I need to say
So I have written you a letter
Sealed in it is my heart.
I stand by the mailbox
I grip tightly on to hope
I pray that you will come back to me
I kiss your name
And watch turn
Wheel of fortune turn
(I cant make you love me by Bonnie Raitt)
Cause I can't make you love me if you don't
You can't make your heart feel something it won't
Here in the dark, in these final hours
I will lay down my heart and I'll feel the power
But you won't, no you won't
'Cause I can't make you love me, if you don't
