The silent rooms inside my head,
Have let you in.
When the rain goes on for weeks,
Eventually the grass comes up greener, and the sun shines brighter.
You’ve got me in a headlock –
But I’ve stopped fighting.
I’m pulling any loops tight into a knot –
I let that sinking feeling drown.
Every day, next to your steady heartbeat –
Your smoky, candy-coated breath in my hair,
Your harsh, throat-clearing sounds in my ear.
I can’t get close enough.
It feels new, every once in a while –
First date, month; year.
Sometimes falling still feels like flying,
As I continue deeper, harder, further.
The languages of each other,
Become more fluent on our tongues.
I can’t wait to learn your words,
The ones you call “forever”, “always”
The places I go, you stay with me –
You keep me from wandering through my darkness alone.
At night, when I feel your skin on me;
You bring sun to my shadows.

I ache –
in every part of me,
that I care to name.
I tilt my head,
my whole spine snaps –
I am nineteen,
feeling not a single day younger
I have –
not ingested, inhaled,
a single substance
to make me feel this way.
And yet –
every morning is a question,
to the very roof above me.
like sunlight and warmth
in winter months
my body cries for your arms
the scar on your back,
the bend of your nose,
the crease between your eyebrows
when you cant figure it out
the light as it catches your eyes,
the glimpse of a grin
the way you taste
your straight lines against my curves,
the way you make me giggle,
the way you say-
who’s the prettiest girl in the world?
SO I FELL, SLOW AND DEEP,
HARD AND OH SO STEEP –
A LOVE THAT STEMMED FROM LUST,
NOW MUCH MORE THAN A MUST.
Who Says? 9-14-2010
they say it never lasts.
but you’re still here,
and i’m not leaving.
they said no one ever
stays this happy -
i’ve never smiled this much.
they told us,
the honeymoon stage ends too soon -
i still want to spend forever with you.
they think love,
is a matter for time to decide.
with every day i love you more
it wouldn’t always be this exciting -
i hold on to every moment
they swore we’d never make it -
but we were made
to prove them wrong
Lie, cheat, and steal –
These have happened to me.
Steal was a football player,
Who stole all he could.
Cheat a musician,
Overall not my type –
Not my style, and opposite beliefs,
Lie was by far the worst,
For he also stole and cheated his way to my past
He strengthened me though –
And my trust issues.
But you – you’re not one of those.
You’ve stolen only heart.
Only cheated to get past my guards,
And you lie with me in your arms every night.
you’re everything I need.
