The juxtaposition of dark and light

I miss you...
Sweetness itself,
Apple cheek smile,
So bright and warm.
My sun.

And now you feel cold,
Taking me for granted.

I'm running on faith,
But I don't know how much I have left...

How much longer will My Love be gone?

Why do I feel like I'm just not
Why do I feel like nothing I do is good enough for you?

Get out of your head!
Think about me for once!

I try so hard...
Do you even try at all?

It sure doesn't feel like it.

Wondering as always,
What did I do wrong?

Old insecurities,
Never far from the surface

Why can't you talk to me?

Why won't you talk to

It's so silent without and I,

Tiny barbs
So small, yet they carry so much weight

Soft powder,

So cold

And me,
So subdued.

Why can't this happen more often?

How can you long for something
That wasn't,
That isn't,
That won't be?

I create so much in my head that I trick myself into thinking it's real

Sick with longing,

How can I get away from you
When you are stickied on every memory
And thought
That I have?

I wish so dearly to forget
But you are seared into my
And are not easily scrubbed away

And on these long, cold nights I wonder...
Do you miss me like I miss you?
Do you think of me like I think of you?

It's hard to get lost in life
When someone who made me feel so much
Is no longer in mine

There is but a dull, cold ache
And I'm afraid it's slowly spreading.
When will Spring come?
It's been a long winter

Can cast such powerful emotions

Will we ever meet again?

Underneath the stand of cedars,
Leaf litter clothes the ground

When a foot touches down,
It is nestled in leaves and needles.

The silence of the ground
Magnifies the volume of the wind.

Winds pushing in to shore,
Bringing sand and silt with them
What else could it bring?
New hope?
New blood?

Both, I hope.

Little bits of my heart
Still belong to you
And I've never felt more betrayed
Than when my heart yearned for you today

Bitterroot in my mouth,
Thinking of you.
I remember when thoughts of you filled my mouth with sweet sugar,
But there is none of that here now.

How could you?

Cloudy days, nothing but blue
In my head.

You left,
And you informed me much too late.

These weeks have been a blur and an eternity all at once...
I'm so busy,
But any day where I don't talk to you
Is the cruelest kind of punishment:
Sad and slow.

There is sadness locked away in me
That only you can release

Give me that healing touch.

My soul's been dimming lately,
My love.

Can you brighten my day a little?

I can only imagine
Your lips on mine,
Magic sparking on our tongues,
Heat flying from my body,
Getting closer than close

Two souls,
Coming together again.

One can only dream.

Your plump, pink lips,
Conveying your honeyed words to me

They tease me...
Something I desperately want,
Yet can't have.

I find remnants of you everywhere I go,
Flashes of your eyes in the sky blue water,
Flashes of your hair in the sweet yellow grass...

There is no peace for me,
Here or anywhere.

Were that I could hold you in my arms right now,
I think the field of stars overhead would align.
All would right again, and
The moon itself would shine brighter,
For Us.

You are so many miles from me,
And though you are in my heart,
I do not know if I am in yours.

Fleeting shadows
My mind grabs at them as they flit past,
But it comes up

I can't be gone of you, can I?
When will you give me peace?
What more must I do?
What have I not given to you,

You rip my heart and poison my dreams...
So seldom remembered,
And I must remember the ones with you?

The great dark of the night
Swallows up the forests and lakes,
Buildings and roads,
Swathes of black covering all.

Bitter, bleeding rocks fill my mouth.
I have so much that I want to say,
But nothing comes out.

The harsh truth,
Known by us both,
Will never be spoken.

How cowardly of us.

I can't believe I was so ******.

You made a fool of me,
Which I thought nigh impossible.

You selfish girl.
You knew what you were doing.

You coward.

Too late.

As I sit on my bed and
Look out the windows, I
Am drawn to the clouds,
Thundering ominously.

And as I sit on my bed,
Wonder what you're thinking.

Do you
Think of me as much as I think
Of you?

Do I want to know?

Perhaps that's why they

There's something about a gym at midnight,
The proud stillness of everything,
As if even the wood in the floor knew the achievements won here.

The scrapes and scratches tell so many stories...
A jump, a dash, a full stop.

This gym holds valor.

Not other people

So instead of doing something about it,
Going to sit here and
Smoke cigarettes
