The keyboard on which I type has built
A layer of gunk, finger oils, and
What have you

My houses are formed of chicken scratch
Wooden board, then - nail, another board, it's
Just practice

A Hallmark life and coffee spoon lines
Too chicken to scratch - an itch, the surface,
Toothless skin

So maybe just maybe, peel yourself up from the world
Claw the sensation away wherever it comes
For ****** mere moments, let yourself become unfurled

If you can't keep going never hesitate to get growing. Your soul dies the moment you give up. Rather keep your head high.

i have always feared of saying i love you too much
as a way to decorate our silences—
when the laughter dies down,
when we scramble for things
to keep the momentum of our conversations.

but the truth is, the flow so easily from my mouth
like water on a quiet brook—
i love you.
i love you.

then i realize i have nothing to fear.
for every time i whisper, i will be met with your voice
ten times greater and convincing— i love you.

The way a child trusts so blindly, I will close my eyes and fall into your every word.
The sugary-sweet  scratch of every consonant and the friction of each vowel.
I will trust you with no hesitation.
If I fall, I know  that you will catch me.

The way a child clings to it's favorite blanket or stuffed toy,
I will hold onto you and never let go of the feeling you put in my heart.

The way a child finds no sorrow in it's days, I will too, look at the world in a sunlight so bright, there is no room for darkness.
When I am with you, I can know no sadness.

The way a child sleeps with a guardian teddy bear at it's side, to fight off every night terror, I will rest easy knowing you are beside me.
Your body pressed against mine, like perfect puzzle pieces.

The way a child day-dreams of anatomically incorrect hearts, and
cheek-kisses, I will dream of you and all of the butterflies you give me.

And the way a child believes from the bottom of their heart, that everything will be okay, I will give you my heart, and believe that you will not break it.

the problem with me is that I rather know how it's going to be
then go through it
we'll never really know until we have the guts to go through with it

I’ll miss you indefinitely.

I know it’s going to be a long time before we get to talk to each other;
Much longer before we see each other. It burdens me to know you’re
Out there somewhere, a desert away from me. I never see your face,
Never hear your voice, but I know you’re somewhere, in some place
Far away from where I am. There’s a chance you might still love me;
There’s a chance you might not. But like it or not, I still love you.

I love you; I’m sorry.

I know it’s wrong. We were born from the same blood. But sometimes
Love is blind and chooses to see what it wants to see. I want to see
You. At first I thought things could work out. But society has made its
Constructs; these we will have to follow. Whence comes my sorrow…
Yet it is hopeless. If you wish to move on, you may do so. Say hello
To another man and I will understand. Life plays its tricks on all of us.

Maybe next time.

I will understand if you have to forget me. It seems, considering our
Circumstances, we just cannot be. But if you do continue to love me,
Know that I will never forget you.

Your talents and intelligent was a treasure.
You were a great artist even if you weren't sure.
You are a beautiful gift given by the heaven,
So put a smile that will struck a maiden.
