Trying to remember you is like trying to remember the feeling of snowflakes fall on my cheeks after living in the tropics for two years.
The last thing I remember is the feeling of my smile against your velvet pillowcases.
And then everything went up in flames.
I don’t know why I did it.
I am so sorry.
Why do these words pervase the human race?
Stop stringing words together like
you don’t really know the reason why
hurt people hurt people.
How can you claim love
when you still have one hand
deep in the pages of someone else’s book of poetry?
Love fast love hard they say,
but what about loving without fully closing our previous book?
We always forget how strong gusts of wind are
and you had loose pages you couldn’t hide anymore.
Uncomfortable growth is my wool sweater
that’s three sizes too small.
All I want to do is just rip it off.
The fight to success
tastes so much sweeter when
you add my sugar to
the tea and stir.
I just want to be called
beautiful when you think it.
Tell me the things you’ve
never told anyone else.
Help me forget where
I am kissing you.
Just be with me. Be with me here.
Breathe with me.
Explore the world with
my hand in yours
and don’t let go.
There's a big difference between someone who talks to you in their free time, and someone who frees their time to talk to you, never confuse the two.
You know a love like this isn’t easy.
In fact it’s impossible,
but that’s what this is it’s two impossible people crashing and burning yet
welcoming the destruction of themselves with open arms.
They’ve never felt more alive,
more in touch with the world,
in touch with each other.
And even though all she wants to do is run the other direction,
she is swallowing her pride like she swallows fear,
she looks in the mirror and says this is who I am.
I am nowhere near perfection but I am trying and I will continue to try because
Instead of letting her flaws burn down the sunshine and smiles she will let him in.
You are right there beside me as we build this person I want to become, together.
Brick by brick, your hand interlocked with mine, together.
We are building myself together.
