Loving
You

Is
A
Cold
Place
To
Be

It reminds
Me

Of
Walking
In
Winter
Rain

Barefoot

On
City
Street
Concrete

While
The
Wind
Breathes
It’s
Ice
Breath

Over
My
Neck

Draining
My
Warmth
And
Hungry
For
More

Jen Snow 17h

I got so tired of
Trying
To
Drag you reluctantly
Towards success

You don’t

See
Hear
Grasp

Me

Where I am going
Who I am
And why

How can

She

Possibly know better than me

???

Your biased mind has taught you so well

I will continue

Forward
Now
That

I have cut

Away
From
You

Sailing is so
Smooth
Without
All
That
Dead
Weight

Dragging me down
Holding me back

Moving forward in
Optimistic
Lightness
Fast
Away from
Your
Drama

I
Love
The
Colors
And
Smells

Of
Warm
Cinnamon
And
Ground
Beans

Muffins
And
Green
Tea

The rustle
Of
A
Newspaper

The
Quiet
Clicking
Of
Keys

Gives my
Weary
Heart
A
Break

And
A
Safe
Place
To
Be

435 in the
Morning

Driving to
The
Airport

Alone

Like
I
So
Often
Do

These Days

Heading
Out
To
Lend
A
Hand

Help
A
Friend

Do
What
I
Can

I saw a woman
With
A
Black
Balloon

Happy
Late Nite
Smile

Crossing
The
Street
From
Someplace

Good

Balloon
Bouncing
Behind
Her
Jounce
In
Her
Step

Makes me
Wish

I had a
Black
Balloon

Of
My
Own

I waited
For
You
To
Come
Back

From those deep waters

But
When you
Did
You
Weren’t
The
Same

Kept dragging
Around

Memories
Histories
Pain

So
Big

Too
Big

You couldn’t even see me

I
Hoped
You
Would
Shake
Those
Monsters

But like
Sisyphos

I
Watched
You
Walk
The
Path

Blindly believing all
Was
Well

And
As I watched
You
Break yourself

You
Broke
Me
Too

I tried to be your rescuer

But
You simply
Retreated
Further
From
The
Shore

Until
It
Became
Clear

You were hoping to drown
And take me down too
To be a lonely mermaid
To your ghostly soul

But that was never my path

In my mind
I
Know
How
He
Will
Be

His
Voice
His
Touch
His
Song

I have dreamt of him
Since I was little

Blue eyes
Handsome man
Tall to shade me
From
The
Sun

It will
Be
Like
Cinderella
Mixed
With
A
Bit
Of
Sleeping
Beauty

And maybe a
Splash
Of
West
Side
Story

Or a touch of bad boy
Like
Those
S.E. Hinton
Books

Always thought
I
Knew what
You’d be
Like

Damn
It’s
A
Bitch
When you
Get
It
So
Wrong

These days I’m relieved

Most of my family
Is
Dead

In life

They were
Picture
Perfect
Outside

But

Rotten
To
The
Core

I wonder how that sits with

God
Allah
Buddha
Jehovah
Behemoth

Or if it matters quite
At
All

Does my
Gladness

Bring me
Bad
Karma

Or do they
All
Understand

My relief

At leaving behind
A
Life
Of
Persecution

Having lived one themselves

They think

I
Run
Cross
Country
For
Sport

But
I
Have
A
Secret

I
Run
From
What’s
Behind
Me

I
Run
From
What
Is
Past

I
Run
To
Forget

I
Run
To
Be
Normal

I
Run
To
Belong

But even then I stand out

Something funny
‘Bout
That
Girl

Awkward
Shy
Stumbling
Words
Nervous
Laugh

Who cares

She
Can
Run

And so I do

I
Run
Until
I can’t
Feel
Anything
Anymore

5 Miles
10 Miles
13 Miles
15 Miles

24 Miles on a treadmill
To see if I could

I
Could

But eventually
You have to
Stop
Running

No outrunning my past

Not even
Flo Jo
Is
That
Fast

Don’t

Is the worst
Word

It limits
It bounds
It confines

Chokes off your
Life

Don’t go too far
Don’t run too fast
Don’t work too hard
Don’t fly too high
Don’t love him or her
Don’t cross that line

Red warning lights ahead

If you

Don’t

Fall in line

But not me

I want to build the biggest wings

And
Fly
Until
My
Skin
Is
Ablaze

I want to break
All the boundaries

I want to go where
I shouldn’t

I want to feel
So alive

That
Every
Second
That passes

Is
A
Glorious
Eternity

Fearless passion

As
I dive down
From
On
High

And even
If
I go
Down
In
Flames

It will
Be
Such
A
Beautiful
Demise

That every
Single
Moment
Of
My
Burning

Will
Be
Worth
It

You have a
complicated smile

He informed me

Why
Is
That

How to answer
A question so
Simple

While the
Truth
Is
So
Complex

How do you explain
VerMeer’s
Obsession
With
Light and
Dark

Or Einstein’s
Spooky action
At a distance

Is it all intertwined

Or separately

Defined

How do you explain

Pain
Or
Fear

Anger
Or
Shame

Does my

Loneliness

Look
Like
Yours

Or is it

Unique

In
All the
Universe

And when I

Think
Feel
Want
See

Love

What does it

Mean
Seem
Is
Be

To you

Is it like mine

Or

Will my
Dark
Conflict
With
Your
Light

Will my
Truth
Scare
You
Off

Or did my

Smile

Already
Tell
You
All
You
Need
To
Know
