local

i’m fairly local,
i’ve been around,
i’ve walked with you down these streets and i’m lucky to hold your hand and i don’t want to let go yet.

grandfather

this is surreal.
i am aching because i have nothing to say about a grandfather,
only a pop-pop who i haven’t seen in over two years because my grown up life is far too busy to make time for my family that fell away when you died

cloudless

i’ve got a truck for the weekend and i’m lying in its bed,
staring up at the cloudless sky and wishing you were next to me
to help me count the stars.

departure

i wish you’d had a camera to capture the look in my eyes as i stood on the precipice.
i’d have liked to have seen a hint of bravery.

i am not ready for departure but i’m going anyway.

reminded

daily i am reminded of god’s grace,
and i show it to others
but daily, i must remind myself that i need to show this grace to myself.

i am so unbelievably enough.

overt

am i too overt with you?
or am i really being honest?

why do we live in a world where it’s unacceptable to express how we feel?

adolescent

i am no longer considered an adolescent
but when i look in the mirror
i don’t see an adult
and when i’m forced to look inside myself
i don’t feel grown enough to take on the world

dealer

i called the drug dealer yesterday
to see if there was a return policy on you
and to see if there was a cure for the side effects you left on my heart

witnessed

i have witnessed my own destruction
i have seen my body fall to the floor, in pieces
but then i watched myself get back up again.
i have found my voice.

starlit

i like being out here with you
lying under a starlit sky

i think i could see them all
but i find myself choosing to stare at you instead

clasp

i lose myself in the heat of your body
skin against skin
i clasp my hand in yours

please don’t fall in love with me
and don’t let me fall for you

apprehend

apprehend my heart
take my soul captive
cover my lips with yours and forget to let me breathe.
it would be my pleasure to have you break me in two.

standing

i could be standing in a crowded room
or standing alone on the edge of a mountain
surrounded by life
and feel dead
because something deep within me
between the spaces of my atoms
cries out for you

influence

you have so much influence over who i am as a person,
so much so
that i don’t know who i would be without you.
i don’t know how to be without you.

instant

that’s all it takes.
one instant.
everything can change.

that’s terrifying.

but
it’s also sort of refreshing.
at any moment,
you can change yourself. be anything you want to me.

that’s also sort of terrifying.

anchor

where is my anchor?

who will ground me again when i’m caught in a storm?

i am lost at sea. i am floating away.
my ship will shatter, i will drown.

beware

beware of the voice in the back of your head
who whispers about demons who wish you were dead.

be careful, dear one, or you will find
that this voice, these demons, will take over your mind.

sanctity

i am currently ruining the sanctity of empiricism. i am the worst research assistant ever. this literature review is killing me and my mind is everywhere other than these articles.

barrel

head first, i will barrel through the walls i’ve created.
i will grasp change by the horns and let it carry me to new adventures.
i will go places i have never been before.

i’ve been local most of my life,

and never look back.
