missing you feels like
all the clouds
have gathered
just to rain on me
Lily 1d
Like heat waves and headaches
your eyes go and your skin turns
and an energy
just transfers

I look at you
and I’m sorry,
for the way that I am.

For you are all that I’ve lost.


Theres a calm
that comes
when I’m not.

Eyes downcast
only wanting

to be pulled
in close

and you do.

You are all that I’m not.


You hold my face
in your hands
and make me small.

When our eyes meet
we go away
and for a moment
it’s quiet.

You are all that I need.


Listening now
all I hear
are slow waves

and suddenly
I'm lost
in turquoise.

I want to take you there

i want to know somebody

know every detail of their life events
i want to blow the candles on their first birthday
lick the stamp on the first letter they sent

i want to share and be shared intimately

from my brown skin into my core
i want to wrap around his member and see his eyes ask mine for more

i want to nearly bleed to death

over how much I’m able to give
over how much I might withstand if it meant my love would live

because i think people are meant to be shared with one another, tied in an infinitesimal amount of ways; tumbling as one.

If our paths do cross again
I hope they do without my knowing
I hope you catch a glimpse of my spirit
as it was before you broke it:
beautiful and blind to you.

I hope I never see you again
but that you see me;
In a moment of laughter,
of joy in passing.
I hope that it stops you in your tracks.

I hope you are struck by the familiar flush
of red life flaring off my face
I hope you fool yourself to thinking
I am the same
as I once was.

I will never be yours.

As the sunset simmered
low and slow
a soft light rested
on the counter where I sat

I burnt my toast
while I was daydreaming
about kitchen ***
then the tea kettle screamed
because It couldn’t take the heat.

I poured the water in my cup and let the roses steep, left the burnt toast in the toaster and went back to bed

Just one ******* time
I’de like to feel something
without feeling everything.
