she is, to me

She controls her laughter,
lets it slip from the edge of her mouth,
the corners of her lips lift ever so slightly,
then, she makes a sound,
seamlessly, her fingers graze my thighs,
smoothly, her eyes meet mine,
and in her eyes, I see my reflection—
aflame, abashed, and fiery,

She is the answer I’ve scoured the world for,
and yet, she, herself, remains a mystery,

Ah, I see,
She controls her laughter
as easily as she controls me.

Iv'e been lost in your beauty
Many times before.
The way you flow so flawlessly
The way the light shines through you
The way you sparkle and shine
As it bounces off each remarkable ripple.

I've been up and down you
Many times before.
Getting lost in your current
Endlessly exploring every part of you
You've carried me so far
As I floated contently for the ride.

I have come to you
Many times before.
You have never let me down
You have been so kind
When I need a friend, you will comfort me
And I'll be forever grateful.

i betray myself every night,
when i sneak off
and see you in my dreams.

Maybe in a few years the fog will clear and I’ll be able to understand what we were doing now

I’ll never mean anything to anyone as much as he means to me

When you said
you wanted us an end,
my heart raced,
skipped a beat,
died a bit.

I was torn-
a little,
in two,
in pieces.
And not knowing when all of my pieces will stick back together...
I have gifted myself a permanent hug so I'll never have to pick it up again in case I fall...

Miss you

I miss you
That’s all I can think of
I miss all of you
My mind was left behind
Now I am just a shell
Of a person
Walking around
Trying to convince others
I’m so much more

i reread your letters today
the ones where you compliment my smile and promise you’ll never leave
some tears rolled down my cheek and smothered the ink
i can tell since you wrote em your heart’s started to shrink
I just wanna know what happened to the person that used to write those letters for me.

I don't want to meditate. I'm too scared of my brain
