• Kathryn commented on the post, distress 3 years, 9 months ago

    My arms beat at the shapes of clothing
    Ripping and tearing and darkening
    Spraying false years on.
    Songs and silences cannot convey all
    But with the visual representations of your fears
    Your hardships
    And your hunger
    The greyscale story tells itself

  • Kathryn commented on the post, end 4 years, 4 months ago

    Is this the end
    Of late nights together
    Of silly faces and held hands
    Of noses buried in shoulders
    Of zombie flicks and first kisses
    Of hair petting and hand rubbing
    Of thumb stroking and footsie playing
    Of you
    And of me
    And of us

  • Kathryn commented on the post, roof 4 years, 5 months ago

    You are the roof over my head
    My shelter from my storm.
    Beneath you, I find
    Home.
    The place of love and comfort.
    I gaze up toward your expanses in the
    Thought-filled moments before sleep takes over
    Thanking you
    For keeping me safe.

  • Kathryn commented on the post, higher 4 years, 5 months ago

    From the depths of the black ocean
    You propel me
    An accendio that brings me to burst
    Into the air
    Air crushing through the emptiness of my lungs.
    I don’t know which makes me feel
    Higher.
    The sudden oxygen or
    Your boost.

  • Kathryn commented on the post, both 4 years, 5 months ago

    We are paint and brush
    Tree and leaf (or pines?)
    Cut and blood
    Heart and love
    In love
    The both of us reaching for each other.

  • Kathryn commented on the post, object 4 years, 5 months ago

    When you reach your arms around me
    To whisper in my ear
    I will not object.
    When you pick up my arm
    And weave your fingers through mine
    I will not object.
    When you look at me from across the room
    Unapologetic and adoring
    I will not object.
    Your attention is what I live for.

  • Kathryn commented on the post, past 4 years, 6 months ago

    The wind blows,
    My hands left empty,
    Cold in the chilly breeze.
    I watch as you walk away and I wish
    That you would return
    So that I could accept your offer.

  • Kathryn commented on the post, square 4 years, 6 months ago

    Walking through the Square after the worst concert either of us had ever been to, I realized the importance of a companion who could turn something dreadful into one of the most enjoyable nights of your life.

  • Kathryn commented on the post, late 4 years, 6 months ago

    Look how late it is
    With our sun high in the sky
    Shadows shrunken,
    Small circles beneath our feet.
    We laugh at the night
    For thinking that it could darken
    The light that we share.

  • Kathryn commented on the post, hall 4 years, 6 months ago

    If my life were a hall
    Dark and creepy
    Long and thin
    Filled with the possibility of
    Monsters and ghosts
    With creaky doors opening to
    Different eras of
    Me
    You
    Would be the light
    At the end
    That I fumble toward.

  • Kathryn commented on the post, received 4 years, 6 months ago

    I have received
    Warmth
    That I do not deserve.
    These coals in my chest
    Save me
    From
    The bitterness of self
    But I scorn them
    And wish that they would burn
    Brighter.

  • Kathryn commented on the post, satisfy 4 years, 6 months ago

    I do not
    Know
    How much time spent together
    It will take
    To satisfy me.
    All I want to know is that
    You
    Care as much about
    Me
    As I
    Care about you.
    Please.
    Even
    One word
    Would hold me over.
    Please.

  • Kathryn commented on the post, mention 4 years, 6 months ago

    One single
    Mention
    Of your name and it’s like
    I am floating
    All over again
    Swimming in the sky with the candy floss clouds
    Your hands around my wrists
    As we spin
    In a Ring-Around-the-Rosie
    Ballet.
    You make me want to sing.

  • Kathryn commented on the post, arts 4 years, 6 months ago

    Hand holding
    Forehead kissing
    I smile from across the room
    Or an understanding twinkle of the eye.
    These are
    The arts
    Of sharing hearts
    With another.

  • Kathryn commented on the post, roar 4 years, 6 months ago

    As the curtains open the
    roar
    of the audience
    is like
    dark figures
    falling to the ground from
    dizzying heights
    crashing like
    fairytale beginnings
    and the sun
    shining
    on the moon

  • Kathryn commented on the post, transform 5 years ago

    It’s amazing how many things can change
    In one week.
    Just a few simple words
    An admission of weakness
    And suddenly I am surrounded by the love that I’ve ached for
    Since that very first fight
    Since the […]

  • Kathryn commented on the post, dusk 5 years, 5 months ago

    The dusk of everything that we ever could have hoped for.
    Your hopes and dreams
    Everything you ever pursued
    Fading away with the sunset.
    Any sanity I had left
    Beckoning for the dark
    To show some release.
    We are a mess
    You and I.
    The torn flesh reminders
    That this just isn’t fair.

  • Kathryn commented on the post, deserve 5 years, 5 months ago

    You deserve so much more than I can give you. You’ve been through so much in the past few years. I know you hurt. I know you’re tired and you want to give up. But you haven’t. Not only that, you have always been there for me when I needed you most. I don’t think […]

  • Kathryn commented on the post, skyline 5 years, 6 months ago

    You were my skyline
    The great beyond
    I admired you from afar
    Wondering what it would be like to explore
    That far-off
    Beautiful place
    Wondering what wonders
    It would hold for me.
    I wanted to explore you
    I would’ve gone to the ends of the earth
    For you
    But even skylines fade in the sunset.

  • Kathryn commented on the post, museum 5 years, 6 months ago

    My heart is a museum of you. It is full or things that were and no longer are. Things that are aged and overlooked. Things that were beautiful. Things of the past. Will you walk through and examine the artifacts? Will you comment on which ones are your favourites? Will you try to remember a […]
