dating

is it really that much
to ask that you love me as painlessly as you did when we first met?
is it too much to wish for a kiss
much like the ones we shared before
they tasted like hope and sunny skies
now they’re sad stale lies that linger on my lips as i lay awake at night thinking about breakfast and laundry and furniture sales

you used to touch me in such a way that i felt like if you let go id just float away
now you touch me because i ask you to
and you’re too tired to tell me that you don’t feel the same anymore.

sweep

there you go again
out of my sight
out of my reach
and i’ll push all my feelings under the rug again
until you come back to me.

officers

everything i write is about you or how whatever im scribbling is not worth reading
sometimes i just wish i could wrap my arms around you and hold on tight
and feel exactly like i did when we first met and i was falling so fast
but you can’t fall forever.
you’ve never stopped chasing me but somehow i’ve lost the courtesy to run
you’ve never stopped loving but somehow i’m not holding on
and you deserve so much better.

patient

why are there days, when thoughts spill right into my fingers
and make them twitch around a pen,
or they form right in the back of my mouth and push because they’re desperate for escape
but on days when i need the power of language more than i’ve ever needed anything else
im silent
and still
and utterly apathetic?

available

i’ve got words wrapped up in me that my mouth has never seen
words that no pen will ever trace across a page
too vulnerable for eyes and ears
too cold for summer skies
too much for me to bear.
untangle me

roof

i was going to actually try to write something
but im pretty much hating myself right now
and everything about me.
why is it so hard for me to be okay with myself?
if i had the balls to jump off of the roof and be someone new, i’d do it.

higher

When you fall, you really fall. you crash.
you could have taken me as high as you wanted
and i thought that i’d have let you
but i wanted to taste the dirt
so i let go of you
and when i hit the ground,
you were the greatest thing i’d ever seen leave.

major

you are so much
there is no small word to describe you
there is nothing insignificant about the way you are
who you are
you are electric
you are positive
you are loud
and you burn like the sun.

society

sheets wrinkled,
pale porcelain against a shabby grey
that would be beautiful if you weren’t lying in comparison.
there’s a shine in your eyes that no one else can see
and i almost feel guilty
for keeping something like that to myself. almost.

solution

Sometimes I can feel my heart beating
deep in my chest
and it’s a grounding, take your breath away feeling.
I’m here. I have blood pouring through my veins, I have thoughts spilling out in every direction.
I am real, as real as anyone else.
And it seems so basic, but that’s a strong thing to realize. It really is.

bury

I buried you in my back yard
with the fish that died when i was six
and scruffy, he died when i was four
I buried you in the back yard
with all my other dreams
and that one poem I wrote for you
And my favorite shoes
goodnight

wet

my life slips right through my hands
like water
all of my thoughts pour endlessly down a drain
and i try to catch them and decipher each one
but they just slip between my fingers

fresh

Today is new
but i feel so old
so held down but the things that hold me down every day
someone come peel away my skin so i can grow a new spread
someone come pinch my face
i need color
someone come shine a light in my direction
i need crisp air and a hand to hold.

dominant

i never thought id be in charge
i never thought id speak up
i sit back and watch
i am the wall flower
but not since i met you
now im always in charge
i make our decisions
i am on top
i want to be controlled again
take me back

walls

i wish i had the capacity to live without walls
barriers
i string them up right in front of people
and they put their palms on the glass and mouth words like “please?” and “why?”
and i just stare and stare until they walk away
I wonder what i’d do if they tried to push
if they stayed
or if they came back with an axe to break all my filthy walls down

combine

Chemical reactions happen in all kinds of different ways
id like to think of us as a nice little combination
our chemicals touch each other and react together in an instant
like mixing blue and yellow and making green
you change all my colors for the better

affairs

ive had a million little affairs
i really have
and i called each one of them “you” in poems and wrote silly little things about them and pretended that i was in love because thats what i thought i was supposed to do
but they were just affairs
evenings, not many, where my mind was occupied
nothing to be remembered really but now you and i just cant forget.

before

before i was this way
there was you
i was different like i said
but you’ve stayed the same all this time
i love you for that. i love you for everything you are.
i didn’t love anything before.
