I never meant to feel like this
It came like a sudden fright
Crazy as I am
I’m not so spontaneous
I keep my love out of the light
A true nocturnal creature I am
An animal plain as can be
All the motions that I cram
A display for all to see

Yet none see it
None but me
And maybe

I don’t know what you will say
Somehow that makes this greater
I should be frightened
Scared and trembling
Yet I feel as the victor
I don’t know if you’ll see like this
I hope I never find out
Your heart is mine
So smooth like wine
Come see
You won’t want to miss

Yet none see it
And yet you do
And maybe
That’s enough for two
I never meant to feel like this... But now I'm glad that I do.

one day
it will be easy to breathe
my lungs will inhale flowers
and honey
it will be second nature
like riding a bicycle
like tying a shoe
like swallowing a pill
and i will hold on
tightly and
with shaking hands
until then
feeling very overwhelmed lately. trying to hold onto the hope that it will not always feel this way. i will find my peace.

Somehow in a fuzzy haze I now see more clearly
a filtered type of life in which thoughts run so easy
No anxiety, distractions; one thought, one at a time
Who knew being hungover could turn out so fine
definitely still crunk at work ffs

Is it
hypocritical
of me
to still pray to God
to ease my pain
when I know
I'm the one
who caused it?

Those that lack compassion will never
utilize their second chances
and I am not saying this to be romantic
I am just letting you know what is true;

the only difference between

love &
        hate
                is

what you see inside of you.
Be easy my friends.

I am alive in a home-made dress that was bought for two dollars at a yard sale
there is domestic bliss in routine
in the inching of my hand on a knife that will be used to slice the
tomatoes growing outside
there in no harm in loving you eternally
I think about everything often
about the way I tried for years to soothe my fathers’ psychosis
and my mothers’ sadness
I think about the temporary loss of my body and the way I absorbed it in sweat
my bones constantly caught in bushes of bramble thorns  
and I wish you could see how far you have to go to come back home

I hear them laugh,
A lullaby of joy

I hear them sing,
A melody of passion,

I hear them murmur,
A tune of felicity

Contentment.
Ease.
Delight.

Where can I find the music I hear?
The luruxy to be happy,
Listen to them,
The music of love

The Moon has a gentle light, which he gifts the Earth,
It could be compared to how you talk to a child;
Careful, soft and in a sweet manner
His light doesn't hurt me, which is what I adore,
Therefore, is it bad that I tend to lose myself in his gaze ?
When he rises over me, in a clear, registered pace ?
Without a sound I let go of all troubles, all pain,
As the clouds open and it has stopped to rain,
Many people do want to be the sun to brighten up anothers day,
But not me, this is not something for me to say.
I wish to be alike the moon, brighten up your darkest of times,
And be here, to illuminate tomorrows very way
Tug you into a delicate embrace, like his light tends to do
And be here for you, till I have to rest too.
Even in the coldest of nights, the moon manages to warm my heart
And manages my heart not to just fall apart
Tonight again I will enjoy his light,
After all, I hope he does not leave my sight

the clouds are floating
some days i try to catch them
but my grip is loose
so i learn to release
these reminders of you
and love that seems
within my reach
but i am a fool for drifting
and i have grown familiar
to the mastery
of breach
and love is here
just trying to teach
me and my past selves
the meaning
of ease
