I know we can't
be together right now,
but I still love you just the same.
Missing my friends

I'll never forget that day
you caught me off-guard like that.
The way you so effortlessly
drew my breath away
upon first sight
as if to make room
for what could have been.

Even when I
write about you,
the ink that smudges
upon my hand takes
the shape of you.

The rustling leaves
A hint of rain
My shining heart to rust again

My eyes stayed closed
But memories rise
The earth, her face
The lake, her eyes

They see fields
I see you
They hear rain
I hear too

Your laugh, your voice
Your fear, your joy
Everywhere, everywhere
Everywhere is you

sleeping softly next to me
i feel the pulsating of your heart
as i lay awake, reminiscing
the day spent together
thinking of ways to
put our love into words —
your presence keeps me safe
by the moonlit window
i couldn’t be happier.

I've had my eyes on you for some time
I met you at the coffee shop in line
On our first sip it took you back right to
Your favorite diner outside of the town

I can't get enough of your dandelion love
Oh, I can see a sailboat in the sky
So take me out to see all the things that we could be
Oh, we can let the day fly by

You wrote a song for me and sang it
Now in my head it's always playing
And now we're dancing hand in hand together
Late into the night, under the moon.
You know
      you love her
when her calls
    feels like the sunrise
entering through your windows
       and her voice
is the alarm clock to your soul
      whenever you sleep
with an aching heart
    from missing her
Darling behind the pretty face
  what more can you offer
when you're already
one of the best things
    in life
has to give

Who forgot to put the moon to bed?
For it is day
and still he looks at me.

like water
I poured myself into her until she was overflowing at the brim

like reinforced steel
I bridged my heart to hers and welded myself to her soul

like the sun
I filled myself with light to cover her darkness

like a blanket
I shielded her from the harsh world underneath the covers

like magnets
I orbited her aura until we inevitably collided

like a seed
I felt myself growing up from her

Then, like an idiot
I could tell she felt nothing.

— The End —
