Sunshine

The sunlight gazes down upon your skin
highlighting the speckles in your eyes
you embrace them with a caring grin
while staring with the ocean tides

you shine like the sun on a stormy night
nonsensical yet charming
and when your eyes gaze so bright
the warning bells scream, alarming

your heat is a soothing fear
drawing me close
blinded by your debut premier
i could only throw a single rose

my light may not shine like yours
and my heat be as striking
but love, this warmth has been through wars
waiting for you, hiding

you are the beauty of my doubt
and the rose to my thorn
to you, i am devout
and by love, i am sworn

Vanilla Curls (Amanda Lovelace Poems)

I have always been weary
of putting names in my poems
in fear that I will never be able to take
my confessions back
but when is a good day to tell you
that I have loved you in every lifetime

In the past we were entangled in each other

One life we were shooting stars
another we laid lazily in fields of wildflowers
a love too strong to explain through words
so we didn’t speak
instead you embodied the beauty of spring
a way to remind us of those April days
when nothing existed outside of each other

We hid our love behind buttercups and daisies
maybe that’s why I love to bring you flowers
to feel the flicker of a spark we shared
in a lifetime so long ago

In another lifetime we read quietly together
over coffee in smoky French cafe’s
we underlined passages
that we would read each other in secret
our love withstanding a time
when it was criminal to look at one another
with the type of love we shared

I don’t know if I have ever loved you loudly
there are no muscle memories
of me shouting your name from rooftops
or unapologetically holding your hand
without fear of repercussions
—even now I don’t know how to form the words
I love you
without looking around to see who’s listening
even after all this time I love you in secret
I still can’t put your name in my poems
but i promise in one of our lifetimes
I’ll write your name in every poem
and tell you that I’m in love with you out loud
someday the words
won’t feel stuck in my throat
but I hope that’s in a lifetime sooner than later

Art for Life (Amanda Lovelace Poems)

All that reminds

She/He is an Art
Timeless
One of a kind
Modestly unique
Beauty unseen
With sensible smile
Embrace the vibes
A humble delight
Inside out

That enough
To calm the heart
To fuel the thoughts
Twining the souls
Let me explain
In a captive silence
Millions reason
Why to remember
Why not to forget

If you are awake

When the Glass Sky is the Limit

We

finally refused

to be seen

as only

bodies crafted for

the men’s

use& consumption,

so we set the

clouds ablaze to sway them

to show them how

wonderfully we could

co-exist

but

they chose to take it

as a threat

& they

have never fully

forgiven us

for claiming

the portion of the sky

that was always rightfully

Ours.

Past Life (Amanda Lovelace Poems)

I must’ve known you in a past life

You feel so familiar

Even when I didn’t know that I knew you

I knew

There was something in the way

The warmth radiated from your skin

Caramel macchiato I drank you in

The baritone of your laugh

You were so familiar

Yet we had just met

Your silhouette

Was one I had seen before

But not in this lifetime

Were you mine in another one?

Slipping through my fingers like silk

Always one grasp away

But you’re never gone

The way you remain like the rain

Soaking grass in spring

And I’m thirsty for you

For endless nights talking in darkness

Till light came in again

And never running out of words

But even as we spoke it felt so deja vu

Don’t I already know you?

How do you know me so well?

Like your code is written into my cells,

I feel you on a molecular level

Your soul intertwined in mine

But never fully actualized in this timeline

Years and years come and go

But your “aww” and chuckle never fade,

I hear it like you smiled that way you do

Like it was yesterday

Time a construction that doesn’t function

In the realities in which I know you

I have known you

You’ve been mine and I yours

In lifetimes before

In present, eyes closed I manifest

My me’s and your you’s

Subconscious whispers traveling

Through time and space

Dimensions unknown

But I know

It’s you and you know

It’s me too.
