AloneStarry eyed as we lay,
Nights with you shine bright as days.
Hold me close when we're alone,
Your heart is my new found home.
As we look at the sparkling sky,
Your eyes sing me a lullaby.
I gaze at you with a longing stare,
A warm breeze flutters in the air.
Safe inside your tight embrace,
You look down and kiss my face.
Then all at once you disappear,
I'm cold and alone, laying here.
So unexpected, and so wrong,
You took away where I belong.
I hear your whisper in the wind,
but when I try to find you, you're gone again.
GhostsI think you're still here
in a small
corner of my heart
again along with me
and loving me still-
and I never did believe
in ghosts or spirits
until the day you left
I found you
the problem with me
i am not good at many things
but loving you.
and the problem with you
you are good at many things
except loving me.
and so the issue
is that delicate balance
pulling and pushing
until one of us falls down.
once upon a timemy heart is full of fairytales
my mind a mess of songbirds
lilacs are tangled around my feet
and words around my tongue
NirvanaI was buried underneath a glacial tide.
Four months of volcanic depths-
fighting off demons that harbored close,
and the smell of smoke flood my lungs.
I swam the icy sea and heard
the mermaids singing soft.
Though burn it did against raw skin,
the lullaby carried me on.
Awakened by the hazy dawn-
soon clarity rose with the sun.
My bruised eyelids opened anew,
and found warmth in the clean light.
i like your bodyi like your body. curves and why-nots
naturally balanced in collapsing and unwinding.
i like the thrill of twists and spinal cords
punctuated by the fear of skin-upon-skin
and the shock. of something so new
with its hows and how do you do's-
i like the wonder and whens in our touch
rush of sparks flutter under my fingertips
butterflies chaos and exploding hearts-
i do like every part of you
bones and nerves and red and blue
and so how i laugh in a kiss
when you say do you like me too
Rafaelayou are everything I could ever love
beautiful in everything you are
you radiate light from every part of you
your smiles down to your toes
I never want anyone to hurt you
it kills me to think of that night
when we cried so hard
and we held each other
nothing would ever be the same
because we understand each other
with every part of our being
to think of what he did to you
and there's nothing I can say
weigh heavy on our hearts
you're interwoven into every memory
threaded through my life
like a patchwork quilt
our story so colorful
full of life and laughter
and if there's anything
in this world
I know absolutely for sure
without any trace of a doubt
there is nothing I would change.
Youyou were incandescent
the light sparkled from you
in bright meteorite waves
through your veins
and you were so pure
like vanilla and honey
we were walking down that dirt road
and the stars rained down on your head
the thunder called your name
and you ran to the sea
every chance you got
once you said to me
"don't you ever die"
and I could never hear
and I'd be happy
we were rolling around
in the grassy meadow
that one night in the summer
and you pinned me down
and kissed me
my heart bloomed lilacs
I looked up to the sky
and swelled with joy
because in that moment
I realized that you were all mine
and I knew that I would never
want anything more
in my entire life
