One And Only

Poem By Jen Eva

2013 won't be perfect without your presence.
Why do you come back for a day, steal my heart away then leave for months of absence?
4 years since we first met and I know it was fate,
But life isn't great enough to create perfect lovers without much waiting.
So I'm debating... whether I'm too naive and unrealistic,
To wait another 4 years to be with you.
I want to love someone else but I don't know how to.
That's the easy way out, I could just move on...
But what about the promise we had agreed upon?
The little moments of me being under your umbrella,
In the wrap of your arm, I become Cinderella with a prince.
And your soft words prints deep in my heart despite distance keeping us apart.
How can I lie to myself when you've always been the one I want to run to.
So can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now to clear all the fears and tears I've had
When the idea of us not being together creeps into my head.
Life still goes on... work, friends and family will keep us busy,
Maybe one day we'll finally have it easy breezy,
Live, love, laugh forever together till we're both a hundred and fifty.
And I'll still be sitting patiently... Letting things be.
I'll be right here waiting for when you're ready to love me.

Comments about One And Only

Damn I really admire your artwork. So much is into it. It reminds me of the one I love, how I feel for her, and how i hope she feels for me, ironically her name's also Jen, but she likes Jenni better. Anyway, good job.

Life Is Complex In It's Simplicity

The three main walks of life,
To be happy, live and survive.
They say 'chase your dreams' and then 'No, don't be dreaming.'
Trying to inject my life with their meanings.


With a frown she looks at me,
As if I'm a clown drowning,
In lack of anticipation of hell
People are capable of giving.

A Talk With Him.

Hush baby girl. I know it still hurts.
Shhhh... Pull it together.
It's for your growth, my glory.
You can never whether the weather.


Lately, I've been greatly blessed with kindness in those who surround me.
They sooth me when I'm angered speaking words of wisdom 'let it be.'
Through them I rediscovered the power of vulnerbility,
I was so close to shutting the walls of my heart hoping to regain stability.

To Those Who Fear Color

Yes? Can I help you? What you looking at?
Is there something on my shirt?
What you scowling at?
Can't be the color of my skin?

So Sick

I've never loved a man who stopped loving me back,
So forgive me please if I seem too taken aback.
I sense your attempts at hiding true feelings away,
But there's so much said from the things you don't say.
