i can't stop picturing
you
with
her

your bodies together
whispered forever?
a secret endeavor

tell me the old tales
follow the tear trails
spare me the details

maybe i rather know
memories are painful though
maybe i should let it go

comparing myself
to herself
with yourself

i can't stop picturing
you
with
her

i wonder
what it feels like
right before
you take the step
into peace
and your body
hits the water

As the power flicks in and out
I'm terrified,
not about the power but about what I see it as,
I see it as us
one moment it so clear, its so perfect, nothing is wrong,
and in the next second the power is out and isn't promised to turn back on,
and even if it does turn back on you remember for a time,
paranoid predicting when and if it will happen again.
Because nothing works when the power is out,
you are helpless,
lit by candles that provide no warmth,
When the power goes out I can't help but think of us,
no matter how small the fight was it still remains,
not for sure if we can fix it,
and when we do we will find something else to bicker about,
until our flame goes out completely and we are left trying to light up the world with a match.

I'm in Flordia while Hurricane Irami ( don't know how to spell its name) happens. The power flickers and I think "Oh no my Netflix there is no wifi."

he had traveled the world
seeing every beautiful sight there is to see
views that leave you in awe
and make you believe
this world can create
amazing things
he has seen colors
you can't even imagine
painted across the sky
and sprouted from the ground
but even after traveling
sea to sea
she was the only sight
that took his breath away
and made his heart
skip a beat

he looked like
everything pure in the world
and she felt like
everything evil

she had hurricanes in her head
and flood waters in her heart

"they say if you love someone
set them free
and if they are truly yours
they will come back"

she paused to take him in watching his chest lay still as he held his breath waiting for her words

"i tried that
i let you go
and nothing hurt more than that
but you're still here
and i'm not sure if that's good or bad
because i think i'm still holding you back"

her voice started to crack but his expression never did

"i love you
but i'm setting you free
and i want you
but you don't have to come back to me"
