and I think the part
that gives me the most pain
is the fact that i will always love you
and you will never feel the same
Oh well
In our mutual agreement of togetherness, I was alone.
I'll just start posting lines I never found a use for, maybe this will be a good home for them.

Baptized in the framework,
emboldened dregs,
stolen legs,
having the will enabled,
will stoke flares.
Hope there's enough left,
to capitalize and trademark,
Mark.
These machination metaphorics may get way dark.

Witness the churn,
turn barrel, pour fuel.
Envision thrift in the burn.
Unequivocal innocents in the thick of it learn,
gun metal, flower petal.
Power is sick of our tone.
They play their tricks on our young,
to build a system above.

We killed the sadness
fit to galvanize
a truthful spirit,
loose beneath the masses.

lifted powder keg,
rug and broom,
others soon to be suiting fashion

Buried in a priory cast.
Wire he tapped,
isn't the first,
was a fiery blast.

I heard the ground stir, out turned choirs of wrath.
Give baron bread, give miner shaft,
and all the pigs just laughed.

All the swine surrounded, founded "Freedom".
Heavy quotes aligned to,
"leave em lying".
We declined to deify, redefine our civil vision .
Twisted lips and sirens, rent,
systems turn, climate,
worth, time to learn to hear and listen,
kids,  earth, diet.
'On the list I promise'.
Truth can't hurt if you stay quiet.
Truth in earnest moves the strongest.
Our seeds to earth are truth in kindness.

Grow.

It takes two person to love,
It also takes two person to break...
Breaking up is also mutual..
It's a cliche, the way past lovers always come back around
as if it's written on my skin that I tend to forgive more freely than I should
as though they are checking in just to see if I'm still waiting
hours, days, months spent shoving their name down my throat
to convince myself the ending was mutual
and then one day, long after the waiting turned into progressing
they have the audacity
to ask if I'm still anticipating their realization that they 'loved me all along'
to ask if I still want them, because suddenly they feel alone
suddenly they need me
but I am taking every step in the opposite direction of you
I am worth more than a second-thought, than the regret you feel from walking away

hey mutual,
how are you doing today?
glad you got away
from the abuse he gave,
and the mean words he said.

mutual,
I remember you,
defending the bruises
and the scars he left,
they were all blue.

mutual,
you were in love
with the idea of being loved,
you weren't in love,
with the idea of getting hurt.

mutual,
we're no longer mutuals,
you're no longer mutuals
with him too,
and that's okay.

I'm glad that help is on its way.
I was mutual friends with this ******* Facebook; constantly saw her updates on her abusive relationship. Last we got connected, I figured she got out of it, and that's more than okay.

They meet often
Sometimes to talk
Often silent
To exist together
In their own
When silence is mutual
More comforting
Becomes an emblem
Of a great relationship.

My love, in all your radiant beauty and infectious joy,
You are the treasure that every pirate in every storybook has ever tried to find,
You are the dazzling lights of a forbidden city, and the brightest star in the night sky,
You are the steps to a dance I have memorized throughout every refrain of the song of our lives,
You who dance through the fields as if blessed by the fey themselves,
Ruler, kind and fair, of the flowers that bloom gently beneath your delicate fingers.
You come to me with a smile and laughter in your eyes,
And you, my darling, are everything.
So in the stillness and silence of the winter night,
When you ask what we are, I will answer,
“You are every kind thing and all the less than nice things and you are your wit and your temper and your smile and the laughter that sounds sweeter than any tinkling bells even when, and especially when, you laugh loud and full and unafraid.
We are the shaking peace of a candle at midnight. And the whirlwind of a tornado and we are everything we can ever be or will ever be and every regret we hold and every wish and every secret hidden away in our hearts.
We are everything we need to be for each other.”
Something I wish to find one day

You’re a holiday...

Something that gets celebrated once a year
Because you don’t come around like you use to.
But when we link up, nothing has changed.

Some people are flowers, meant to be loved from afar.

They shouldn't be plucked, just to die between your fingers.
