Stop pining, stupid girl
This will only end in heartbreak

You've already run around in these circles
Chased your tail
Fallen down dizzy
And sick
This will only end in heartbreak

You will cleave your chest open again
And again
Your throat and lungs and heart and veins
Will burn until you're heaving
And you're hurtling toward a cliff's edge
This will only end in heartbreak

You will shatter
And shatter
And shatter
Because you want more than you were offered
And you are playing with explosives
And there are sparks everywhere you turn
And this will only end in

It's hard not to long for it
When it makes me feel so warm
When I have been cold for so long
I fall so easily
I love so completely
If you would just stay
If only someone would just stay theyโ€™d see it
I am perpetually in the honeymoon phase
The affection gets me high
And I spend the rest of my days wanting hit after hit
I am full of passion, full of desire
All-or-nothing behavior
Maybe that's why everyone leaves
I'm too much, always have been
I have been love-sick for as long as I can remember
Truly I hate my hopeless romantic nature
Its nothing but a pit to fall into again and again
Still, I walk on
Continue to prevail despite it all
But Iโ€™ll tell you a secret
I do not want to win this battle
Not at all
I am too much, no one wants me for real. I'd like to burn. burn burn burn.

Can you count the stars
of the heavens
Can you count the waves
of the oceans
I know you can't
You can't understand
how much I need

You're the painkiller
of my heartache
You're the faith healer
You're the address
of my happiness

I see my dreams
in your eyes
My clouds scud across
your skies

I wanna be your soft blanket
I wanna be your denim jacket
I want to be yours

When you feel cold
I'm there for youย ย 
to hold
you in my arms
If you feel sad
I'll try my best
to make you glad

Why are you always
in my mind
Will you ever be mine

if i play with your hair,
i just didn't know what
to do with my hands.
i'll write a poem and
try not to feel pathetic,
i'll keep hoping or
come to terms with
you not really caring
where this'll go.
storybook ending,
beat the odds,
or straight into a
brick wall. i don't know.
i'll kiss you goodnight
and wonder who
you dream about
when you close your eyes.
we all have ghosts
we want to love us.
naked skeletons in the closet
that our memories dress in skin.
seasons change,
flowers wilt,
lovers leave.
i feel so stupid
wishing that you wanted me.

When I first saw you

I knew from the start

That not only from your beauty

But your grace captured my heart

These broken pieces of me you hold so gingerly

And with just a touch

Erase all the pain and unwanted memories

Life never started until I met you

I hope and I wonder if you have these feelings too?

What did I do to deserve your attention?

Because I've done nothing for myself that deserves redemption

But I feel like I've finally found my light

My brightest start in the darkest night.

The sufferings become sweet
The word turns the tweet
of a bird
The beauteous
fly in the stomach
The dazzling sun seems dark
Everything seems meaningfully meaningless
The lover is always sleepless
The eyes are eloquent
The lips love to be silent
So afar and tall are you to me,
For you are from shining mountains,
Higher than the clouds, your brow,
Darker than the heavens, your hair.

So small and fey am I to you,
For I am but lone whisper in glens,
Slight as one firefly on the moors
And my reflection but a tiny glow.

ย ย ย ย Only to spark at edge of pools dark,
ย ย ย ย Only to fly when in harnessing arms.

I crossed a bridge to be with you,
The streams slipping times away,
Beneath my girlhood, all in a rush,
Then I entered the deepest wood.

So small and wan was I to you,
For you are from snowy mountains
And I am from rain-watery glens,
For you are portrait and I bokeh.

ย ย ย ย One day the woods engulfed me strong,
ย ย ย ย One night the bridge I crossed was gone.
An empty shell
A glass was full
once with passion

Now is filled
with darkness and
its 6 feet depth

I wonder
if he ever
thought of me

Six feet under
or I wish I was
My condition is emotionally dreadful

Once in awhile
i need to see his
name once again

Once every blue
moon I hope
I do

do you have any idea
how special you make me feel?

by your smile, the corner of your lips
touched by the goddess of joy,
i am warmed, enveloped by the kindling
in your ember'd voice

i never understood love until
i lost myself in your gaze

the world slows to a stop
stretching the limbs of time
just to treasure that moment
of your beaming grace

too many thoughts juggle in the background,
racing through my mind but i struggle
to even grab a single one, just to respond-
before i'm lost in your eyes.

how is it you spark such joy in a simple look,
a touch of mischief caught in the corner of your
eye just there beyond the specks of blue on grey

i cannot hold a single thought but the moment
you share my gaze, i wish to hold that moment
for eternity.

i don't know much about love, but when asked,
you are the first thought to cross my mind
and the first name on my lips.
i wish to see you once more
