It's hard
when my fingers yearn for the rough of your skin
I imagine my arms extending like branches on a willow
twisting and turning on street corners
to make it to you
for one last touch

It's hard
when the cold encompasses my back
facing the empty dark
and holds me still
I imagine your head buried into the nook of my neck
your heart's slow beats pounding against me as you sleep
as I wiggle under your heavy arms

It's hard
when the blinding light pierces through my eyes
as i try to regain consciousness
only to turn to my side
and see the pillow untouched
the crinkles exactly how they'd been left the night before
I imagine waking up to you pulling me closer
as if the waves carried me away in the night
waking up to your scrunched up nose and tired eyes
leaning in for a kiss
that never materializes.

If I were a bee and you were a rose,
Would you let me in when the gray wind blows?
Would you hold your petals wide apart,
Would you let me in to find your heart,
    If you were a rose?

“If I were a rose and you were a bee,
You should never go when you came to me,
I should hold my love on my heart at last,
I should close my leaves and keep you fast,
    If you were a bee.”

You often stood in front of the mirror seeing imperfections,til I squeezed honey on your tongue which accumulates to changes in the perspective of your eye.
Now all you could say was "I'm perfection"

"Honey on the tongue" is profound and the climax of the story

I've liked,
but have I truly loved?
Love is iridescent
It shows with magnificent colors,
but changes swiftly with every passerby


I don't want to be iridescent

Love is ever changing.

I melt when our eyes meet.
When you smile angels sing.
When you laugh the world falls silent around you.
I'm transfixed on you.
Do you even know my name?

I found myself in front of the mirror
I saw someone who looked exactly just like me
But I don't know her
She looks like me
But I don't know her
She mimics every move I do
When I fix my hair, she fixes her hair
And when I look at my eye, I see her eyes
When I look at my body, I see her body
Who is she?
The one that's standing in front of me?
Who is she?
The one who does the same things that I do?
Who is she?

Who am I?

I'm about to unloose this bind
that has hold of me
and allow my soul
to run completely free--
but before I do,
let me be fair
and give ample warning to you:
I still just do NOT care--
so don't go thinking
that I do...

dedicated to One who hurt me beyond repair
but I cannot continue to deny that I do indeed
have a right to live on. (just not with Him)...
