I fell for you when the days were short, I loved you when the days grew, And when the sun’s were hot. Despite your missing sunshine , My love remained, stubborn and unyielding. Now the days grow short, And so it goes. 8pm, the sun dwindles and the lights go on, And once more, I’m starved of your light, And I crave it, oh how I crave it. Your sweet smile, your warmest touch, your open heart, And so it goes. In this homeless house, I count the days, the weeks, the months, ’Til the days grow long, And your rays shimmer through. Grab my hand and pull me in, For you, I’ll surrender. Never to turn, never to close. For you, always, vacant.
Tattered flowers and broken flutes Deafening emotions put on mute A home to build, a home to dust A heart so full set to rust Surfing the wreck as we adjust We try, we try and we try You can wipe those tears dry but just know Somebody wants you Somebody needs you Somebody loves you And that somebody is me Take a knee, tap thrice and let it go Whisper goodbye and send me to the shadows Maybe one day, one day we’ll glow Again, and if we don’t, if we can't Surrender my name and meet me in the afterglow You push, I pull and you keeping pushing You can wipe those tears dry but just know Somebody wants you Somebody needs you Somebody loves you And that somebody is me And when you’re staring out your bedroom window Eyes watering as the sun sets in its bed of orange Know that I’m out there in the distance Thinking of you, dreaming of you Missing every square inch of you Waiting for our paths to cross once more And when your tears flood, just know Somebody wants you Somebody needs you Somebody loves you And that somebody is me And that somebody is me
In your eyes, I saw you I saw a girl that I would come to love I saw my best friend I saw an ally that would help navigate my storms I saw the smartest person I know I saw the one that plagued my thoughts In your eyes, I saw everything In your eyes, I see everything but A future
As your weight presses on my chest, I gravitate to your light. Synch to your breath, Tense to your touch, Relax to your kiss. In the crescent of your moon, Your tide brushed through, And washed this heart anew. A perfect canvas, where my Sands dance to your rhythm. You pressed your hand to my chest, An impression you made: a gentle hand. And the love you gave, Remains on this atria, Not a scar, Merely a handprint. A memory of what was shared.
I am selfish. I am generous. I am intolerable. I am hilarious. I am stupid. I am smart. I am naive. I am wise. I am cold. I am loving. I am burdensome. I am helpful. I am foreign. I am white. I am struggling. I am privileged. I am silent. I am loud. I am NOT racist. I am ANTI racism.
In world so full of potential In a race so full of diversity Why must we facilitate this hatred? Why can’t I look at my brother; Tell him that I love him; Tell him that the world accepts him; Hold my arm around him; And tell him that he’s safe; That he’ll be alright?
“Wait, won’t you?” —“Of course.” In the heat, in the cold, In the dry, in the rain. In the peace, in the tyranny, In company, in solitude. Gladly, sadly. “Wait, won’t you?” Words you never uttered, Words you knew you couldn’t. A question you never asked, A question you knew the answer to. Rightly, wrongly. “Wait, won’t you?” A sacrifice, Perhaps. A waste, Perhaps not. Good-day, Godspeed.
I no longer feel righteous Trying to recover from a crisis How could magic, be so tragic? Life. I did my best to be ever so careful Feeling like we were special Was I so naive, to believe? Maybe. In your room we found asylum And the noise went silent Why did the peace, have to cease? Nature’s Laws. Your impressions, risen questions Friends offer suggestions, attempt to prevent depression Were we wrong, for so long? Perhaps. Attempt to fight, against nature’s might Solace in your light, innocently wronging the right Was this fire, forever destined to expire? It hasn’t. I no longer feel righteous, though I’m glad The truth is hard to digest, but you I had Was that enough, to trump the rough? Yes.
Today, I had you Today, I lost you. Today, I healed Today, I broke. Today, I laughed Today, I cried. Today, I held Today, I released. Today, was the best Today, was the worst. Today, I’ll remember Today, I’ll forget. Today, today I lived.
Noise cuts through the air Startles the limp and revives consciousness Next to me, you lay So sweet, so soft Kiss your eyes and summon my legs to motion Erect, I act reluctantly to depart A jolt of my arm And you demand I stay Squeeze me back, koala your legs around me, and I feel you and it pains to know that I cannot forever remain In your bed, the air lay thick with love and lust But simmered with sin and immorality A moment to flicker, a moment to dream Before the snooze fades and we’re forced to part
