He had given her his
And it killed him
This is how love kills

Sixty words per minute// no errors
Five hundred plus poems// written
Thousand firm handshakes// given
Countless prayers cried out// frantic
And if you ever saw me work// well
You'd be surprised

Keeping this one a mystery. ;)

I'm still hurting
still devastated
that I lost you
all of you
because I was worried
to see how you were
I wish I never sent that text
how I miss you so much
the worst is
i worry that you
already moved on
already forgot me
that you don't feel
the same as I do
marking every day
since I lost you

Do you miss me?
Do you cry for me?
Do you wake up &
wish for my body
slumbering next
to yours?
Have you moved past?
Have you got a new lover?
Have you found
someone lovely
someone better
than me?

fuck i miss you

I guess I love too much and dive too deep. Sorry for all the insecurities in this poem.

when i was little my dad used to
call himself God, used to tell me
airplanes were bumblebees, told
me "bored" was just a plank of wood
so that was impossible--
never mumble, use an inside voice
but there's an outside voice, but
i never learned to speak with
conviction from him--

lately i've been calling my brothers
the weeds back there are taking over,
the spiders are everywhere,
god, zak, my heart is breaking
god, little sister I wish I was there, but
I'm not girly.

people used to tell me to howl at the moon
but i've always been afraid of my  own voice
always wanted to scream but replaced the urge
with a smile

be blameless and innocent? Lord, I've been trying
but you can't force what you ain't,
tryin' doesn't seem to be enough for you either
but i've come to find i don't know you as well as
i thought, so bear with me while
I am, while I am

I think I'm ready to surrender,
to raise my white banner,
done with pushing you away,
open up to you once more.

You already know my wounds,
the deep scars I carry,
I'll let you touch them tenderly,
I won't lock you out.

See, I only felt love; I forgot to show,
Love is also an action, sacrifice,
I let go of you and held onto myself,
But I miss you and long for you.

I don't care how ugly you say you are,
you're fucking beautiful in my eyes,
and if you're messed up, so am I,
I'm with you always.

~Your best friend

Another birthday... you never have let me buy you a birthday gift. I wrote you Sprezzatura last year. This year I'm giving you a renewed dedication... I'm sorry things have gotten so difficult around me. Please believe I'm doing the best I can. I'm tired of you seeing me at my worst, so I'm giving you my best. I don't think you've ever understood how much you mean to me, and I don't think you will until you accept that you do. I don't want our friendship to be half-broken anymore. I'm giving this everything I got.

Glistening light
refracted by glass
Perfectly pretty
your sunny smile

They say a smile is a woman's prettiest curve. :)

True love:
Loving perfectly
an imperfect person

True love:
Giving everything
For only one

True love:
I love you
I love you too...
