People thought it only existed in fairy tales.
She found it cliché.
He brushed off the very thought of it.
But then it happened.
They happened.
We happened.
And we never expected it.
I love it
when you

I just wish it happened
more than
just once in a
Come on, whatcha hiding? Smile!

Smoking like a dragon
Game of Thrones on TV
I don't mean to be dramatic
But I knew I was addicted from the first time you had me
Backflip on the mattress
Cracking up a cellphone screen
Back then I knew you were attractive I just didnt understand conflicts of personality
Tell me why you're laughing
Tell me why we over think
I don't think you have the answers
The two of us are dancers but only when we drink

You don't want to know what I'm thinking

You didn't hear this from me

You don't wanna know what I'm thinking

But if I speak up

You didn't hear this from me
Reminiscing over potential, someone who could've loved

it's late
the lights whet dim
you're at a party
probably with your hands
around another girl's waist
but i'll act like it doesn't hurt
act like i can pretend
that last night didn't happen
it's late now
the sounds coming from the street
i can hear them
drinking, taking shots
i know you're at the party
drinking to forget
and i hope someone passes you by
because i can't act like
it doesn't hurt me
i can't act like i don't want you
but it's too late
my phone is dark
now im at the party
trying to find you
pushing men off my waist
but you'll act like you don't want me
act like you can pretend
last night didn't happen
but we were too late
and you're standing there
feel your eyes tracing my hips
and she's all over you
but i won't act like you don't want her
won't act like she isn't me
but maybe i wasn't late
because you're next to me now
you couldn't act like you didn't want me
i couldn't act like i had no feelings
and we just happened
to be right
on time
whatever you're doing now
I can't change it
but I won't deny it
I just won't be late

I've spent days before I met you with suicidal thoughts and l came close  to making that decision several times Ive slashed my wrist several times  and came close to jumping a bridge but never once thought I'd lose you my love
Despite all thats happened In my life I never once did I think I'd lose you my love
He died.
We cried.
All this pain.
Tears coming down like rain.
He's not coming back.
And yet it all happened
so fast.
In the blink of an eye,
he was able
to die.
Any suggestions on how to deal with losing loved ones?

Why you?
Why now?
Was it the dark, the lack of light?
Well, there was the moon glow through the the window!
So it has to be what was on my mind.
Was it the ***?
Cursed truth serum
That burned my mind with the Polaroids of my insecure past?
When I had doubts of not good enough
When I lied more than I told the truth
Changing my name from town to town
Changing my face from friend to friend
Whatever the reason must’ve been fleeting
I don’t remember now or am I repressing?
Only time will tell if I start admitting
that I have problems that might need fixing.
Admitting you have a problem might be the first step but it's still very hard!

morning dew drops on your collar
impressing me with the zealous way the seasons drastically measure the moment it takes me
to reach forwards and brush it off
liquid winter falling onto a ***** cement
the initials 'F T' written jaggedly into the cold stone of asphalt
i wait for it to disappear, for the flicker of everything gone to fade from my vision
but it passes too quickly
i look back up and there's no one around
the street is empty and the capricious wind has ceased
a sucker for patterns i walk into a fabric store and feel my hand linger on the erratic linens
fingers paused on the peach organza sprawled like a pink bubblegum sea
and i am swept into the manic fantasies of wearing the sheer tissue-like textile into
the abdomen of your sweaty palm and sinking like a sticky sweet stripe
until you put your hand in your pocket and i spend a year inside melting
into the every thread and curve of your jean until it is nothing but disgusting sugar
everything i could be when i am hidden from sight in the dark caverns of denim pants
who knew the tongue in cheek joke would be nothing but my tongue in your mouth
touching all the way up your gums  
find me sweltering beneath the uvula wondering if i could go back
to the time i found that girl with the mountain logo sweatshirt who whistled between her teeth and hummed all the reasons i should skin my knee and kiss the salty wound because there's no greater pleasure than knowing you don't have to wait for that morning dew drop to fall from their ******* collar
