“please be *****”

she stands in her doorway wearing just a gown,
I walk in the house, dumbstruck by beauty,
up in her room undoing the bow, the shield simply slides down
caressing her curves, stroking down to the floor,
intertwined bodies craving the touch of the other,
joined as one in the gentle acts of love and ****,
romanticised ideals of perfection and soft rhythm,
delicate groans as two become one,
the broken poet, for the moment, is gone,
my drug addiction of you, just wanting more,
As my heart bleeds, love begins to pour.

“please be *****”.
this poem is influenced by The 1975 instrumental song "please be *****". i regularly think of this song as romanticising the act of *** and the trust required with it rather than what most songs make it today. despite having no lyrics the song speaks volumes to me and id definitely recommend it to anyone. stay safe and live well.

The tears that fall,
Mix with raindrops on my cheeks.
My sobs that echo,
are enveloped in thunder around me
I’m covered by the storm.
Blanketed by the cold rain.
I find it comforting.
I see this in many ways. It’s a metaphor that can be applied to a lot of situations. The storm could be many things.

I want a redo. I want to take back the things I said to you. I want to take back the things we did.

I want a redo. I want to avoid meeting you. I want to forget you exist.

I want a redo. I want to make us work. I want to be with you still. I want to be whole again.

I want things to be different. I want a different ending.
Things didn’t go how I wanted. Now all I am is hurt.

This is coming from my heart.
It’s what I feel. This is all my thoughts.
I think that sometime things might get better.
I think that sometimes I won’t be able to do it.
I think that sometimes things might get tough.
I also think I can get through it.
I think that I am strong enough.
I think that there’s always a way.
I think, I might just be okay :)
I think I’m actually getting better. There’s still a lot of sadness in me that I’m afraid won’t go away for a while. But today is bright. And tomorrow is an opportunity :)

I listened to your words. And no matter what you said, it made sense. And they made me feel okay, your words, as they danced into my ears. You manipulate me. Used me for your benefit. And your words still dance around my head. But they bring questions with them. Did you mean what you said? Or were you only saying it because it was what I wanted to hear?
