you asked me
to plant flowers
in the cracks of your heart
and leave them long after
they have wilted away

because much like anything beautiful
that has hurt you

you believe the rooting
could form something
even more beautiful

the summers haven’t been the same
since you left,

late at night
i drive to the beach
and listen to the waves
because in the sounds of
them crashing into each other
i can hear you call my name

i grip the sand
because through the grains
i can still feel your hand,
letting go of the sand

i place a seashell
beneath your star
so that way you can
enjoy this moment
with me
2020 sure is a different summer, i hope you’re all staying safe throughout all this!

every memory
i’ve had of you
has found its way back to me
turning our white silk sheets
into satin blue
every tear stain
a different thread
embroidered with every
i love you
we had ever said
to each other
m h John May 25
each broken promise
comes with a broken heart

we both knew this
but still continued to break each other’s

one too many times
m h John May 11
i know your pain
like the back of my hand
i see every smile
you’ve given me
in the cracks of the moon
and i see you still
during every dreamless night
m h John Apr 30
we sat in empty parking lots
and watched the ferris wheel
talking about how
we were once
on top of the world

and now at the bottom

exiting the ride
but still syncing
our heartbeats
to the neon lights

you told me to
plant flowers inside
the cracks of your heart
& leave them there after
they have wilted away
because much like anything beautiful
that has made its way
into your heart
& that has left
you keep them there
because you believe
the rooting from the stems
could form something
even more beautiful
