I've looked at your photograph
so many times now,
I can now carve your every curve,
imperfections to perfection
make a replica of you
on this stone
but it wouldn't be you.
His eyes met hers
and then he knew
it was checkmate.
Haunted by memories
Of you in my head
Ghosts of all the would-haves
Composed of words better left unsaid
The could haves and shouldn'ts haunt this lonely head of mine
Could it be that if i hadn't confessed,
You'd have kept your love a secret?
the world is feeling a lot today -
you can feel it in the pavement
you can see it in the sky
in the clouds
in the sprinkling rain
I am feeling a lot today -
its been lingering
that feeling that doesn't have a name
allowing yourself to f e e l
is something that doesn't happen often, at least for me
understanding these emotions
that I've always locked in a box -
I've pretended to feel them before...
but, for the first time in my life
I am feeling
and it's the first time I've ever actually felt...
c o m f o r t a b l e
Time is an unusual concept
Perspective I have yet to understand
Current washing us clean of everything
Seconds slipping through fingers like grains of sand
In the hourglass of life
