corners.

i can
ignore the
compulsive lying, all your
broken pieces but
i hope you know that
you
could tell me
everything or
nothing and i will still
love you to the
darkest
corners
of your soul

always.

facades.

in the shifting of
yet
another
cycle

he loves me, he
loves me not but
you never really stop
do you

you just wrap everything in a
pretty little bow

and for a while
everything in its
right and proper place

but facades exhaust you, and it's never
terribly long before
everything
unravels
and you are back in my arms

you return to me like you
return to the
bottle but

maybe this is flattering, that when you
let go of
everything
everyone
expects
of you, you want
me

poetry.

i finally
found
the kind of love that prompts
poetry

lyrics.

i want your
head in the nook of my
arm as we
play our favorite
songs as the backdrop to
us

and i sing
ever so softly to you as if
these words
only
exist
to be spoken from
my lips to
your ears

addiction.

is it
wrong to say that i
fear i am
just
another
addiction
in and out of which you
phase

drunk on love, you
say i am
intoxicating as you
write me poetry and we
fall asleep naked and
exhausted, is this
you or are we just
something you
don't know how to
quit

1/1000.

i walk by a
thousand people each
day, what is it about
you that
caught my eye, why is it

your voice
your scent
your touch
your hands on
my skin that makes my
heart
race

leaving.

every time i
try to leave and you
come for me, it
always works but it
never lasts

i could.

i want to
wrap my arms around you, run my
fingers through your
hair. kiss your
forehead, stroke your
beard. just
hold you

until the temptation to kiss you is
too much

and even then, move
slowly, kiss you
softly so you
know

how i feel about you, i want
to hold your face in my
hands, kiss you until i
cannot breathe, pause

meeting your gaze just
momentarily, before i
close my eyes, fall
into you

clothes scattered on the floor, your
body pinned against my
body, fingers
intertwined, limbs
tangled together, your
voice in my
ear until we
collapse and i
could do this all
night every
night, i could
love you with
every
breath
i ever breathe.

i could.

shadows.

i am not the
girl in the
shadows, i live in the
light! where the
truth resides, i am a
pretty big fan of
the way it bends and
reaches to all the
darkest corners, every
pretty little lie

kind or otherwise

i am not the
girl who
sits on her hands, i am
gracious, sure, and i will
forgive you just
about
anything but

i cannot stay, cannot
continue to
war with myself, cannot
continue
compromising
everything
i
believe
to love you

i have begged, i have
pleaded for
an end to this pain but you
persist
persist
persist but you don't
commit

there is something so
completely
irresistible in the way you
move, the way we
fit, how well we
agree, and oh! how well we
disagree, the way you
take my hand and i
feel it in my toes, how
easy it is to
laugh when you are
beside me, the way the
world disappears every time you hold my
face in your hands, the way i still cannot
remember how to
breathe when you
kiss me, but
that is not enough, is it?

so you were
right about a lot of things, but
most importantly that
you worried you would not be
enough. ish. see, you
are enough!
you are so enough, but this
"thing" we have

the shadows
the whispers
the secrets

they are simultaneously too much and
not enough.

so go!
go into the world and
care well for yourself and
love well and know that i
will never
forget you for
as long as i live
