you had
me
in between
your teeth
after just
one
night
and now
i’m 
hoping
that you 
never
leave

watching us
give
goodbyes
in such
slow motion
forever
unable to
pause
walking 
away
wishing there
was some way
to
rewind

where are
the grounds
for this
pain
at the
end of the 
day 
if
we cannot 
tell
the difference
between
what
i gave
and what
you stole

sad that
it takes the sound
of my own
breathing
to remind me
you are
not at an arm’s
length
not a room
over
but out in the open
external from
what existed
here
and this
exhale into
silent
domestic 
unknown
thinking about
where you are
is really just
realizing
that even
if you told me
it would still
be very
far
away

i don’t care
what it looks 
like

i’m keeping
us

(we’re
flightless
but can
make it
through the
winter)

how much
more
of my heart
do you need
in your
hands
to know
that
i could never
leave you?

looking at
your face
through the
dim light
and the pixels
makes me
believe
in the
dreams i
abandoned

patience 
got me
here
so
for the sake
of us
i will
keep
waiting

god was
too
cruel when
he 
created
this
want

— September 7, 2014 —

i watched
him break
pieces of 
himself
off in
my heart

and i let
the shards
stay
in my chest
because
i was
too afraid to
bleed

rain flooded
the pavilion 
and
i
was there

wishing
that you
were
too

skipped stone
thrown
into
still lake
sank only
five feet
but
made too
many ripples
to count

can

you see it in

my eyes

how

impatient i am

for you

Hi All,

It’s a new month and I just wanted to stop and take the time to say hi and thank all of you for stopping by to read, like, comment— whatever your presence is, I really appreciate it. I pay attention to who comes by and please know that so so so many of you are absolutely fantastic writers and that on a daily basis, your work is inspiring me to grow as a both a writer and a person.

I was asked a couple of questions recently about writing and how I write and things of that nature, and I just wanted to make one comment in regards to what I post: I strive for honesty. Sometimes it sounds simplistic. Sometimes it is repetitive. But I create what I create for the people I love and for the people that I am writing for/to. And I try to write about want and loss and joy and a number of other things, and write about it in the way I think about it. Or sometimes find a new perspective and attempt to explore that in the best way that I can. And sometimes all of that comes out sounding like something that should have been written on a Post-It note and stuck on a fridge somewhere. But I believe— for me, at least, when I write and when I read— that’s what poetry is. Honesty. Whatever the form. Whatever the method. So that’s all I’m trying to do here. Thanks for bearing with me. 

Best wishes to you all <3

i’d still
be yours
even if
our 
poetry
wrote itself
out of my
heart
