Eyes wider than Ohio
Staring directly into the truth I've spent years in denial about.
Psychedelic doubt
Ugly within, uglier without.
Questioning myself and every decision I've ever made
Ego dissolution, consequential confusion
Every move has a karmic influence
So we spend our days in the sunlight of the spirit
Summertime eternal
Flowers will die but ever we are in bloom
Screaming "doom" & "i love you"
From the womb to the tomb.
a poem i wrote after tripping face with my not-blood sister. i love you jandalyn tai

I am white clouds
Blue sky drifting
Apart from me cicadas buzz loudly
Bare back on hot cedar planks
Mindfulness in bloom
Ideas like dandelion seeds
Arise before floating beyond the roof line
I am time—
The lawnmover engine turns,
reality returns.

We use to talk every night.
We’d lay there, looking up at the glowing stars taped onto the ceiling, watching them slowly fade into the dark.
Eventually all the light would exit the room, and the only thing we could see were the vivid images we painted with our young rambunctious minds.
Muffled laughter did not wake the giants.
Wispy alphabet soup poured endlessly into the dark abyss.

People are like cherries
Not because they are sweet,
But because they're full of red liquid
and some are rotten inside.

you're my cherry cola
put me in a coma
too **** hot
inspired by the song by jon kuwada.

hot summer nights
heat-induced plights
warm sticky air
living without a care
curled up
sanctuary palace
summertime malice
jovial depression
bittersweet obsession

You ain't my blood,
but I have you in my veins.
You're not my cup,
but I drank the tea, anyway.

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
If flowers were people
They'd hate themselves too...

mid-june and in my country, it starts to rain
while in yours, it starts to heat up your days
our clouds present us different things
and i realize,
no matter how much i like rainy days,
i still long for how your sunny days felt like

you make me grow a garden of emotions
daisies and marigolds and honeysuckles
i could list summertime flowers until sunrise
iris, roses, and dandelions
what is more blameless than your hair being swept up by the wind?
any way, the daydream growing in me would either end up overflowing or exploding
and i would want it again

but sun child,
how could i not
when your laughter is of the sea being pulled by the moon
the zeal in your eyes comes in waves
and i am surfing. diving and dipping
in the way your voice sounds when you sing
i pull up to the surface drenched in awe
what is more enchanting than to watch you on the music?
ocean, lakes, swimming pools, rivers
cocktails, shores, names, lovers
there is no greater bliss than the gently delight you bring

"you are so lovely," i tell you at five in the afternoon by the waters
sunset and cold wind is passing by my skin
i am getting drunk on you
the moon glistening on the ocean is
just the stars in your eyes
i can feel the sunlight's warmth seep through my skin to my bones and settle in my chest
any way, it's either gonna overflow or explode
and there's something i want to tell you:
this is how loving you feels like, my love.

it rains in my place and the sun shines in yours
but i get back to loving you
and it was summertime
to my summertime rainㅡksy, happiest birthday. loving you is summertime.

Summertime texting.
Do you feel restless?
You realize you're alive...?
