Fall

Maybe if I told myself “I’m fine” enough eventually I’d believe it Or perhaps if I smiled in the mirror more I could see it But those things don’t validate the 3 am runs Those things don’t validate, staying awake till I see the sun Or validate how I see that my fate has some …

For Forever

When did it start This feeling of home When did this feeling of familiarity start to settle in At what point did home feel less like home than here right now When did those faces become so familiar that they made us feel warm inside And when did I start changing because of it Because …

Speechless

You’re the easiest yes I will ever give out You can make me jump through hoops without any doubt To only say that you’re brilliant would be such a waste As brilliant does not even touch you or your grace Rather you’re magnificent- entrancing- no maleficent- no wait! I just can’t find the word for …

The Girl who Owns the World

She’s the brightest presence in any room My attraction to her is like the Earth and the Moon As the tides pull closer, the storm surges on As my heart grows fonder of her phenomenon I’m put in a daze at her glimmer and warm rays Thinking of how together we could share better days …
