darkroom

Immediately I separate this into two words:
A dark room
Late at night, window shielded from street lights
And there’s nothing bright that can creep into this
Space that is both full and empty

endless

It seems endless this time spent this looping reality where nothing really changes despite the back and forth it’s always the same thing the feeling of hopelessness always returns in between the brief periods of feeling wonderful.

whim

It wasn’t a whim that took me across the country. It was a deep-seated feeling that had been denied but still grew. A long time coming and I finally took the chance. I took a chance on you.

blotches

Of paint spilled across the floor Jackson Pollock style Are they beautiful or is it a happy accident or merely a coincidence There is a distinct lack of direction my like that of my life I don’t know where it’s going or what the meaning is behind this patternless pigment

notice

Someone noticed that I’m
Not okay
She called me out
And I admitted the
Truth but the next
Steps might be the hardest
To take

tarnished

You’ve tarnished my feelings for you
Clouded them with your inconsiderate inconsistencies
My logic kicked and and told my heart you’re not good
Despite everything I’ve felt and we’ve been through you’ve
Managed to create this desperate situation where we will always lose.

lucky

Do I consider myself lucky to know you to have met you and after all these years fallen in love with you? Is it luck or irony that has created this dynamic? It’s been said that I should feel grateful that I at least have angst and yearning while others’ hearts remain desolate.

obvious

Nothing is obvious since you
Can’t seem to make up your mind
Or stick to a decision despite
How obvious I have been about
My feelings for you so
I suppose it’s more than
Obvious that you were never
Ready for anything and it
Won’t be clear till I’m obviously
Gone

alter

If I could alter the
Past I think that I would
Change something to recreate
Our future despite knowing
What a dangerous game that
Is only so desperately wish that
Our lives were more intertwined-
At the very least I would
Create a life in which
You were not always on
My mind

paperclips

Paperclips are a part of my daily life
So much so that you can find them all around my
Living room, blending into the carpet
I fill my pockets with multiple sizes and feel
Distraught when I forget since
They come in so handy for
Organization

optimism

Is a trait that I am well known for
The ability to see the brighter side of
Life and look for the good in people
Expecting things to turn out or at
Least to make the best of them
It’s been so central to my being that
When I slip and feel less than
Hopeful I hide that away clinging to
A past feeling of well-being

Capture the moment with your digital camera

typewriter

He wants a typewriter
He wants a second job
He wants to come back home
He wants to stay there
He wants to be free
He wants me
He wants to be anyone
Else

stick

stick in the mud like stuck in the mud stuck in a rut but how to get out it’s the same old same old yet there’s a twist each day and there’s nothing new to have so I embrace the current, live in the now and realize this is my life and I better make the best of it with it’s lack of glamor and it’s certain emptiness amidst the fulfillment.

wrong

What’s wrong with this picture?

I can’t even start.

sheets

Underneath the sheets on your
Makeshift bed it’s really just a
Mattress on the floor
You’re at school and I’m on vacation
Reading until you return
Then just saving up ever moment
We’re together

stamps

The stamps used to send
Post cards you never bought
The money ought to be
Used for your parking tickets
Yet you’re watching TV in HD
So you can olay the lottery

temper

trap.

One really great song featured in the excellent movie: 500 Days of Summer.

That’s about it.

possibility

It might be the possibility that frightens me
Having never really framed it in that way I know that
It is the uncertainties that make me anxious
Not knowing what the future will be
Unsure of how to get where I want to be
My breath catches in my chest

» Posted By Amiee On 12.11.2010 @ 10:31 pm

I’ve always loved the possibility of you and when you started to realize it then it opened the door to the possibility of us but when you shut the door on yourself you ended us- something that you’ve always wanted something that I always denied and now I just want it back. The possibility.

immense

My feelings for you are immense
Filling and draining me simultaneously
Inexplicable and inescapable- I search
For answers for reasons for meaning for hope
That this something means anything

believer

I’m not a believer in
Soulmates or the like
I don’t think you were made for me
Yet I am inexplicably drawn to you
And I remember all of the times you said,
“We’re going to get married”
I scoffed at the idea for years until I
Fell for you and then you fell back but you
Eventually fell away

amazed

A form of my favorite word
This time past tense
As in “You used to…”
and “I once thought”
I know the feeling so deeply but
What I wouldn’t give
To experience it
Now

Every day I’m simply amazed.
I mean this in every sense of the word.
From the shocking side of the spectrum
To those events that fill me with sheer wonder

I teach in a public high school

willow

Willow
Pillow
Rest your head
Trees and memories stir,
Instead
Moments have passed
Of times that will never last

teeth

With clenched teeth she braced herself
It was inevitable, like snowfall and the plummeting temperatures of Wisconsin,
Like the constant drizzle of spring in Washington,
It fell apart.

nail

Tooth and nail she fought for him
to no avail since he refused to be
rescued. Too lazy to be
the prince he his but too
proud to let the princess be
the stronger of the two

bunny

Hot damn bunny?
Is he a rabbit or a duck? Which is a wonderful bit from How I Met Your Mother.
Not quite sure how to tell which is which.

transport

Ugh, transport.
The first thing that comes to my mind is the distance, is how far away you are is the fact that I’ll love to transport star trek style to where you are but that’s so
Cliche and I not only hate that it’s my first thought but hate that I still want you in the first place.

copper

Copper the ugliest
of metals it holds no
appeal for me
it appears instantly tarnished
and brings to mind that
metallic taste of
pennies
