the wrong one
will find you in peace
and end up leaving you in pieces

only the right one
can find you in pieces
and guide you to peace
I sail alone on the hopeless sea
With just the stars to fill my view
You are a firework that lit up my sky
now the smoke is just the memory of you

In that moment, you gave me sight
But now it’s darker than before
My lonesome shadow adjusts in my eye
just me and the stars, forevermore
she is she who is she and she
she is one and the same

she is blue eyed, she is green
she is mountains and she is waterfalls

she is she and she is she
she is taken care of, she is freed

she is a stranger, she is all
she knows and she knows not

she and she and she and she
look straight through me
why do i keep falling for unavailable girls
The day I lost her
She told me she had
forgotten my name
in someone else's lips.
i told him
i loved him

i wish I saved
those words
for someone
I look back at my poetry
The ones about sunshine
And fresh breezes
To remind myself
That at some point
I was truly happy
counting sunrise and
sunset, until tomorrow
finally brings you
He gave me dead flowers
So I can smell them every day
The rotten petals falling
The color of decay

The washed out sunflower
The dehydrated leaves
The mold on the water
The color of debris

The richly red rose
Now drooping to the floor
The color of love
Existed no more

But still I saved the flowers
And smelled them every day
And watered them with tears
To let them grow again.
You kiss me
You whisper
I love you

I kiss you
I whisper
I can taste it in your mouth
