bye
i could pack my stuff
and be gone within the hour
there’s nothing holding me here
and everyone knows it.

sometimes
people are so lost
and so helpless
they need to believe
in something
bigger than themselves
as a source of hope,
a light in life’s darkness.

i would swim the ocean
to get to you,
but i bet,
you wouldn’t
even touch
the sea for me.

once,
there was a time
i thought
i would know you
forever.

the highlights of your face
glimmer like snow
in the light of the day.
even at night,
you are as bright
as the fireflies.
darling,
even the sun is jealous
of the way you shine.

bad guys can look good,
flowers can be poisonous,
pretty things can smell bad,
things aren’t always as they seem.

i breathed my last breath
the night i met you.
my last free breath of air.
free of my demons
free of my fears
my last free breath of air.

bad guys can look good,
flowers can be poisonous,
pretty things can smell bad,
things aren’t always as they seem.

you made my heart race
i knew what it was to be in love
i think.
i thought.
you make my heart race.
i know, i am not in love,
i am afraid.

bad guys can look good,
flowers can be poisonous,
pretty things can smell bad,
things aren’t always as they seem.

crying on my bathroom floor
wishing i had lived more of my life
before you tainted it
with your memories and your
actions.

bad guys can look good,
flowers can be poisonous,
pretty things can smell bad,
things aren’t always as they seem.

you were a nice guy.
you did everything right.
but the unfounded pit in my stomach
was right.
and you didn’t turn out to be what i thought

bad guys can look good,
flowers can be poisonous,
pretty things can smell bad,
things aren’t always as they seem.

when you’re not here
i can’t sleep
now that you’re warmth
doesn’t fill the void of the night
no amount of blankets
will replicate
the feeling
of completeness
you used to fill me with.
sleeping alone *****
