I am empty
Yet so full
All at once.

9 words that summarize my experience with my mind
Nath Dec 2017

Have you ever walked under starry skies
A billion fire twinkling above your head
Between city roads that would never meet
With the midnight sun shining is what you seek?

And with this  endless walk I never thought
I would bow my head to lose sight of you
To look ahead remembered what I sought
What I saw is a horrifying view

Under this tired foot a dark reflection
Of horrible mistakes and discomfort
The beautiful light of the midnight sun
Showed my deepest fears, my moonlight shadow.

The hole in my heart is only as deep as the void it contains
The void which is full of your absence and full of my emptiness
I wish you could carry it for me just for one day
Lift the weight off my shoulders
And put it in your pockets
Take out the emptiness
And fill it with only air
Breathe me in, absorb my grief, exhale the toxins
Isn’t that how the body works?
Pour out my tears
I will donate a pool to you
Suck out my sorrows,
I assure you, I can live without.
Carry my heart and teach it a lesson in healing,
That’s what you’ve promised anyway.
Shape the edges, draw circles, switch on the light.
And when you’re done I’ll willingly take back that heart
And transplant it back into my chest voluntarily.
But as for now I’m lacking space.

The monster who loves you
Was never a monster at all,
Red eyes full of unshed tears
Twisted, broken soul from the long, dark fall;
He fell from the feeble arms of grace,
Haunted by the slow burning of his wings
And the fast fading of his mother's face
The lifeless wind has whipped him
Till he can't feel the sting anymore,
Now all he knows is that he's bound to you
And he can't decide who he's fighting for

words like honey
melting from your mouth,
are the sweetest notes my soul has ever heard

even when I didn't want to
you made me feel real
you gave me air to fill my lungs and made me breathe
and I hope you know how much that means
to be the person lucky enough to have you

we don't know what this is
we don't have to
as long as you have me and I have you

you truly don't know what you're doing for me
I may be confused
I may be lost
but I do know that things just feel good when you're around

things just feel really good
