felt like a high school daydream
you pointed out constellations,
but the wind hurt my face and I just wanted to wrap myself in you
On the swings, I asked you to push me
claiming I wanted help building momentum
but it was an excuse to be touched by you
I am shameless
I am sad
my mind is beautiful and soft and hopes that you feel as anxious and dizzy around me as I do around you.

how long until I find another that will crack  me right open?

I vibrate at a different frequency
It lingers for hours after
I’m dizzy with want
maria Jan 17
of not being anything more
of you making me full body laugh
of me suppressing all the things I want to say
of me fighting what my body wants to do

I cannot understand why two halves make a whole. Yet, you and I don’t.

I cannot understand my cat wants kisses immediately after breaking my skin.

I cannot understand why I’m here and not falling down a hill.

I cannot understand why I have all the ingredients to make happiness yet it evades me.

but I remind myself
You’re not mine
Never was
What’s really slipping away
Is the possibility of us
maria Nov 2020
that I love you?
I know it’s not practical or fair.
That our love could never break the surface.
That it’s roots be doomed to grow underground.
