cracked
in black slashes
to crowns of
gold

Aspen, stands by river,
Shouting out the noonday sun,
Dwarfed by foothill mountains.

they'll say you're too
young and you have
no experience and you
don't know what you're
doing and it's impossible
at your age but god damn
it you know what you
feel and you're not about
to let that go for anyone or
anything and that's all that
matters

it's cold all the time
now and it's even
colder when i'm all
alone but i'm working
on warming up and
i'm working on
getting close and i'm
working on fixing
myself

V: C'est la vie.

A: Vous croyez? Pourquoi?

V: Ma vie n'est pas belle.

A: Ouais? Je ne pense pas que moi-même. Vous êtes très belle, intelligente, et génial! Je t'aime beaucoup.

V: Oui, je le suis. Mais ma vie n'est pas. Vous voyez?

A: Je ne sais pas. Vous pensez trop petit de vous-même. Vous devez sourire.

V: Je pense que vous pensez trop haute opinion de moi.

V: Je t'aime.

A: Je t'aime aussi.

goodness.
not that stuff that's in you, just the expression.
did you hear?
things have changed between us.
didn't you notice?
how could you be surprised?
i never let you think otherwise.
i'm bad for you.
don't you see that?
there's nothing that will change my mind, it's been made up.
i just want you to go.

you always got frustrated
because i refused to use any
capital letters and hated
punctuation
you said everything looked
like one giant sentence and
it confused you
i never told you that i typed
only with these tiny letters and
spaces and apostrophes in
fear that if i didn't i'd never
get everything out in time

I watched him like I watch sunsets...
With my breath held waiting for him to disappear
To my surprise he never did

Could it have been possible he was just an apparition?

Aspen, stands by river,
Shouting out the noonday sun,
Dwarfed by foothill mountains.
