i dream to be a butterfly
soaring high through the sky
i may not be by your side
but darling, there will never be goodbye

Like a small cigarette
Your touch wraps around me
The dream fever sets in and I awake
In a trance I lept from my skins
To fall is to never sink
Ease and tension simulataniously working as one
An emotion of heartache and peace
I fear I may never leave your side
Even in miles of distance there is the connection
The maps of stria
The leaflets of lonely-togetherness
All words fall short
Though those eyes have spoken
They imprint themselves onto my soul
Devotion in absolute
I will be yours once I am not

her words like a poem
when I couldn’t find the right adjectives

a genre unparalleled and unprecedented
rarity in a sea of commonality
emeralds floating across the ocean

she was always at the tip of my tongue
I knew I was looking for her, but

I didn’t know she would patch the holes in my poems,
sing the lines to my nonexistent love song,
quench my thirst and question my consciousness

her words unearthed my passion
just for me to put it all back in a poem

i believe myself to be
Unlovable.

crushes are preposterous,
partners are imaginary,
and soulmates are written about in
young adult novels.

i surprise myself,
half the time,
with the absolute commitment
to my own misery.

i am Unlovable.

yet how do you stand there,
and
just,

Refuse?

you laugh at my jokes,
and eat my food,
and give my self-esteem
a fighting chance.

you praise my painting,
and glow at my singing,
and somehow even
listen to my rambling.

you tolerate my anxiety,
and take my advice,
and even make sure that
i know,
at every second of the day,
that you care.

Love feels
so
far


away.



but you make it seem
    Closer,

    Somehow.


so thank you,
for Loving me.
even though the
thought
is
odd.

thank you for knowing me.

thank you for understanding me.

thank you for caring    so    much,
that it hurts both you and me.

and maybe,

one day,


i can Love you back just as much.
it's hard to imagine myself being loved.
i don’t know how you do it.
Soon as I saw you
I began to follow.
Without regard of home,
regardless of how many steps
it took to keep up.
I can't exactly describe what it was.
It just felt natural,
to follow you.
My legs moving twice as fast
This need to fall in love in the palm of your hand.
I felt a sense of need.
An overwhelming sense to bump into your leg until you noticed
This piece of me that felt something was missing.
To follow your every command, be accepted as I am.
For now I am enjoying this stroll.
This trot hoping you'll notice everything I see when I look at you.
What ever you ask of me
My life made whole in a glimpse.
I don't know exactly what it was that made me follow you,
But I am glad I did.
Until I am old and gray.
I will always follow you
Isn't it amazing
How one can fall from Grace
For one person to keep safe

Or how one person
Can never lose faith
Even when it's screaming in his face

They can fight battles
And demons alike
And smile together at the end of the night

Give up every last power
Be weak or strong doesnt matter
And share every laughter

And yet still be unsure
Unsure if the other has affection
Unsure if the other wants their attention

It's right there
As plain as anyone can see
You love eachother so easily

So shout it out loud
Don't let fear take it away
Before you lose another day
This may have been inspired by supernatural but its true. Sometimes it's plain as anyone can see that two people like each other but doubt always takes over and stops yoy from saying how you really feel
Here’s how I feel about you.
When I see you, my heart skips a tiny beat
It’s almost like I’m swept off my feet.
I look into your eyes and I see a child, wanting to be loved but the world made you cold.
I want to be by your side, I’ll be the one you can hold.
I close my eyes and I see the darkness and destruction that I have caused, I open them and I see the light you have brought.
I want to express the emotions I hold and how quickly it grows.
The way your kiss sends ecstasy down my bones, the way my soul aches for you when you’re away.
I want to rip all the pain from you and take away that knife,
The one that constantly stabs you with anger and confusion.
I’ll be here, in almost total submission.
As scared as I feel, I don’t wanna leave.
You love me in all my weirdness,
And I wouldn’t trade that for anything in the world.
You live at the core

Of my daily experiences

You are never far

From view

Because all I see

Is you…

You dance in the fields

Of poppies

I can feel your tears

On my skin

During the summer night’s rain

I hear your voice

Through the branches

Of the willow trees

My heart warms

To the thought of your love

And your sweet memory
