The path ahead is unclear
the first few steps seem fine
(as fine is redefined by times)
beyond is cowled in green gloom
with definition hidden
but enticing

We pause and breathe
ask feet to tentatively tread possibilities
for surer surface

The line ascribed
by timeless river run
seems safe
and the possibility of kingfishers
is a draw indeed

But we have seen these river banks
lost to inundation
and irresistible weight

To realise this too late
would be fatal

so we collaborate in waiting
and make the call
I saw a kingfisher again! That’s three times in 44 years...

do not be timid,
because this world is frigid.

do not let it freeze
the mind that thinks with ease.

it was the night we got high off of our youth
we soared through the sweet strawberry sunset
we didn’t talk
we didn’t have to
it was just me and you on a wednesday night
forgetting the world
and at last,
being at ease.
i love you more than i care to express.

Fresh out of the shower,
with a towel hugging your skin,
You lay on your bed,
staring up at the ceiling,
Feeling as wet hair turns hard,
and skin becomes dry,
and somehow
everything in the world
seems to be okay

Caffeine as dark and cold as it comes
and your body never fails to stay warm.

Comforting, warm, a sweet blend of energy
and I’m always chilly.

Would I be warmer if I took a sip of that bitter&cold you can’t get enough of?

Or is my stone cold physique meant to bring the temperature of us both to an ease of equilibrium?

Encase me in your warmth.
I’ll cool you off
and melt into you,
into me,
into us.

Tired and cold
Self-doubting self
In search of mind away
From noon else
Like someone who you care about
Treat well yourself
And in your own way
Ease Up, Unpleasant Self

When we're together, you put my heart at ease
but this still hurts, you're no good for me
Can't say I don't jump whenever I hear your name
because of you, I'll never be the same

Take a deep breath
Put your mind at ease
I'll always remember
Our nights like these

his touch
is the only thing
ever known
to be able to
calm this storm
buried deep
inside me

maybe if i close my eyes long enough the night will steal your name from my mind and at last, put me to ease
make me feel at e a s e
