you are ethereal. beauty flows from your crown and washes over me like a tsunami, crashing against my rib cage and drowning my body in your essence. you are the sun; golden, graceful, kind. I cannot help but kneel before you to gaze upon your glow. in a hushed whisper, I rasp an amen.
I wrote this about a month ago. it was the first poem I’ve written in a long time

sweet-tea lover,
what a delicate touch
your lips brush against my spine

kiss me, darling
pull me close to you,
sweeten me with your sugar

your name on my lips,
a whisper in the night
-ten thousand enunciations,
do you even know my name?
what’s my name?

they fall like rain
white and pink and red and blue,
fluttering wings, little butterflies
you call them pretty,
as they cascade to the floor,
little whirlwinds,
tiny storms.

roses, roses,
they all fall down,
pick up my petals
i’ll be ashes in the ground.

in my dreams,
you twirl me around,
soft hands in my hair,
eyes on mine,
golden mornings and moonlit nights.

each morning, morning i wake in your arms,
every night we’re under the garden’s bridges,
a soft waltz,
for softer caresses,
and yet the petals fall all around.

roses, roses,
they all fall down,
pick up my petals
i’ll be ashes in the ground.

i don’t dream anymore,
all my days i lay in the sunlight
-dreams of mornings fill my head,
as i grasp rose petals,
strewn like dreams all around.

summer turns to winter,
spring won’t come for me,
the last spring i’ll ever know,
there are rose petals on top of me and i’m six feet below.  

roses, roses,
they all fell down,
you didn’t pick up my petals
so now i’m ashes in the ground.
(song)
It was both you and i
Who fell from the sky,
But i fell hard
And you spread your wings
To fly
i found out that my old crush (he kinda liked me then) blocked me on instagram. i lost all feelings for him a while ago, but i felt a little hurt. no idea why he did it, we only talked on there 3 times
youre my endgame too
forever isnt enough when im with you.
I love you peeth
the first night that you called me
i was starting to suspect
but when i felt my heart beat
i didn’t need to guess
in that hour i subscribed to a whole life
with you as my wife

i wonder if you feel the very
same way about me?
are you laying in bed right now
falling headfirst into a dream?
if the song isn’t for you, i’ll change the tune
love me soon

art is in the eye of the
beholder, so they say
so if i were a painter
i’d be painting you each day
with your blond hair and your oh-so-perfect eyes
i’ve got butterflies
admittedly, i barely know her. on the other hand, she’s already so precious to me
Isn't it amazing
How one can fall from Grace
For one person to keep safe

Or how one person
Can never lose faith
Even when it's screaming in his face

They can fight battles
And demons alike
And smile together at the end of the night

Give up every last power
Be weak or strong doesnt matter
And share every laughter

And yet still be unsure
Unsure if the other has affection
Unsure if the other wants their attention

It's right there
As plain as anyone can see
You love eachother so easily

So shout it out loud
Don't let fear take it away
Before you lose another day
This may have been inspired by supernatural but its true. Sometimes it's plain as anyone can see that two people like each other but doubt always takes over and stops yoy from saying how you really feel

give me a minute to gather my thoughts
before i pretend that i haven’t planned it at all
walking a tightrope, suspect that i’ll fall

but what’s the point in hurting if not to feel something
it’s better than nothing at all

i’m staring at my shoes because i can’t look at you, even though i want to
stumble on my words because i’m caught up in yours
not that we’re keeping score
at the same time, you scatter my mind
into pieces, puzzle pieces
you fit right into place, yeah, when i see your face.. i’m breathless

a million love letters that i’d never write
condensed into one song
so that you can read my mind

there’s so much to say, but i can’t find the right words to tell you
that i’m just so lucky you picked me if only it's until you found someone new

i’m staring at my shoes because i can’t look at you
even though i want to
stumble on my words because i’m caught up in yours
not that we’re keeping score
at the same time, you scatter my mind
into pieces, puzzle pieces
you fit right into place, yeah, when i see your face.. i’m breathless
my prequel to breathe

even the atmosphere,
can’t protect me
when i’m away from you.
like a planet, revolving,
I always come back so soon.

even gravity,
just can’t pull me
away from you.
in the end,
like a planet,
my love’s through and through

it keeps spinning.
the record of,
the same old tune.
when I come by
like a rocket,
i’m over the moon

forget-me-nots,
or petunias,
there’s so much-
I want to convey.
in the end,
like planets,
I’ll always get back
to you.
"won't these planet's get tired of spinning?"
everyday around the sun.
"we won't!", they shouted eagerly
why?, the sun asked them;
"because it's so much fun"

I'm biting my lip at another morning,
it tastes like metal
I've had the pleasure of knowing this taste before
however,
I've never known yours
do you taste like my bleeding chapped lips?
or do you taste like ice cream on a summer night?
do you taste like an unfiltered cigarette?
or do you taste like mint gum?
you must taste like sleepless nights,
because that's all my body seems to crave.
