I can’t quite put my finger on it
Nor can I completely explain how
Whatever emotion you’re feeling
My mind seems to take

“I talk like I’m wounded now
I walk like I don’t know how”
Mayday on repeat
Your vibes whisper lullabies
Making it easier to sleep
Since you’ve been gone
I’ve been relying on counting sheep

Lately there’s been this persistent nagging feeling looming in my brain
I swear I want nothing more than to be wrong
And for you to actually be okay

“I talk like I’m wounded now
I walk like I don’t know how”
Mayday on repeat
Your vibes whisper lullabies
Making it easier to sleep
Since you’ve been gone
I’ve been relying on counting sheep

Just know I’ll survive if I never hear from you again
It might hurt like hell
Though I’m not as weak I seem
You might be me my soulmate
But I am my destiny
Whisper
October love and a delicate signature
Daintily
singing a spirits humble vow
Under
indigo seasons of air
Shadows
fuse and tempo with intimacy
Rain
veiled in endorsement of nigh
Simple as sage
burning and bright
ashen and hazy
lights the dark
night.

color me cryptic
call it unsolved
thick rolling fog
that will not
dissolve.

Flee, dark spirits
ghoulish and gall
vanish at once
and heed our
call.

The chill autumn breeze
The tall and brown rustling trees
Come dead falling leaves
Seanathon Aug 27
An October night
With skin as our blankets, beneath
The windows screens, no longer white

A sudden chill, a rush of hope
With silver skies out a windowsill
And the time to cope with life

We sleep, of sorts, with minds awake
And bodies lying still
And how is that? Thoughtlessly flowing in a general direction with ease.

Sometimes I prefer to not change a thing, or to even reconsider a change.

Friday night lights,
Yelling fans,
Sweaty football players,
Peppy cheerleaders,
And the marching band.
It smells like popcorn,
And the breeze blowing across
The field is pure October.
It feels like anything can happen.
So I take a chance on this gorgeous night
With the full moon out, and as the Hey song
Rings through the air,
I take your hand and pull you away,
Behind the bleachers,
And pour my heart out to you.
The pounding of the drumline matches
The pounding in my chest as I
Declare my love for you.
The cheerleaders finish their cheer, and they fall into the
Waiting arms of their teammates.
Smiling that dorky grin of yours,
You bring your hand to my cheek,
Gently brushing my dimple that I hate.
As your lips touch mine, the star running back
Runs into the end zone,
And the band begins the fight song.
The adrenaline in the stadium is electric,
But it's nothing compared to the lightning
That strikes my heart at your touch.
I fold into your open arms,
Marveling at the comfort you bring me.
I breathe deeply, soaking in the
Friday night lights,
Yelling fans,
Sweaty football players,
Peppy cheerleaders,
And the marching band.
It smells like popcorn and
Your soft scent of peppermint,
And the breeze blowing across the field
Is pure October.
It feels like anything can happen.

Sometimes I still can't believe
I was stupid enough to take you back
After the way you treated me the first time around
Acting like that shit doesn't matter
Like it never happened
Like I never cut myself
Thinking about you
Like I never ate my way through $20 worth of McDonald's
Crying over you
Like I never tried to take too many pills
Trying to get you out of my head
Like I never fucked other people, picturing you
Because I still loved you
Like I never wrote hate letters to you
Remembering the pain like it's fresh
Like I never stayed up all night screaming into my pillow
Missing the shit out of you
I took you back like none of that happened
Because that's how much I fucking love you
That's how much I missed having you
You fucked me beyond belief
But all I wanted
Was to have your love again
To have you again
Call me stupid
Or your girlfriend
Same difference

You left me once
It was still kind of warm
At least for being the middle of October
My tears couldn't save me
No amount of begging
No matter how many times I said I loved you
Or I was sorry
You still left
Wouldn't even open the door for me
As I stood there
Fresh out of tears
With a box of birthday presents
For you

You were home
Just wouldn't open the door
I had no choice
But to leave
I didn't want to
But you made me
You made me leave that night
By shutting me out
I gave you everything
And you left me
You fucking left me

But now you want me back
You say you still love me
It's killing you
You don't even know what to say
Well I do
Fuck you
Because you left me
That warm night in October
And even though
You left me
I never stopped loving you
I tried, but...
I couldn't
Even though you left me

autumn mist rises
across the glazen waters
through the aspen grove
Aaron LaLux Mar 10
There’s levels to these levels,
she gets me because she gets me,
I’m high on life checking texts for what’s next,
as I navigate my carriage through this city,

staying gluten free like Putin me,
daily practice of Jiu Jitsu and yoga,
the real deal like Holyfield,
I thought I already told ya,

always on a holiday,
a Libra that’s gone till October,
and you think you’re gonna win this race,
but I’ve got news for you it’s already over,

I’m at the finish line with a vintage wine,
making a toast to the good life,
watching the sunrise from my balcony,
already knowing it’s gonna be a good night,

good night.
