in my dream last night
a blonde man did i kiss
we embraced between gates
with his hands on my hips
and it has me thinking things
so unrelated to this tryst
like about my fleeting youth
and a euro...
no one can be known
and i’m alone
and no one’s watching
if i hoped someone would see me as i go
it couldn’t make a difference
revolving door of misaligned reflections
I want you more than me
I’ve left behind my selflessness
I’ve fallen at your feet
I want your summer sun rays
Sprinkler rainbow on the lawn
Not these glass shards in my c...
warm evening rain do you remember
nothing breaks as sweet as that first laugh
cross streets, the pull and even then i knew
it’s the reason i avoided you.
my roots unplanted in familiar soil
i blame myself
you broke my trust
possession, digression, tears and lust
could not free me from the stone.
i begged you not to be alone
prayed you’d hear the words i think.
i sent them to you thr...
have my best days now come and gone
in my return i led them on
nothing like that foreign thrill
i was a bird, a sea, a hill
and now i’m concrete, scorching waves
of dull magentas, greyest greys
here we go another song
another heart that i’ve done wrong
moody, brooding, and withdrawn
a sudden sorrow comes along
wish i wasn’t always right
wish i’d let you be my light
wish i’d keep you by ...
The written word is mine to keep
And could I let them know
Those that I’ve shed from loneliness
I had to let them go
For they saw she behind the mask
Before her final form
A molting skin with sel...
Coincidence, or maybe not
I saw you like a light
Like a moth to a flame
Like I’d been starved of sight
From les Sables d’Olonne
I remember the wind
We froze time in the car
Flutter-heart and a gr...
eggs in one basket
i hoped that you’d call
i hoped that we’d change
that i’d give you my all
i’m getting too jealous
i’m not letting you go
and somehow i can blame you
when i’m feeling alone
heart ripped out
i love you more
but when i see you will i know?
my love and poetry is not
worth more than my whole life
but nothing else can make me glow
like sexy lights
I miss you like you miss the summer
Wind-whipped skin and hands so cold
But mine, you held them through the winter
You made my stone heart liquid gold
I heard you like you hear the sirens
i saw a photo of you today
all smiling and silly
i didn’t cry or anything although of course a little sting
and maybe it’s the distance
and maybe it’s the time
but in that moment i was so relieve...
so improbable but
that friday night feeling
it made me think of all the things that are possible
i met someone cool
i did something fun
i left feeling good
like something had begun
and it gave me...
fingers in my hands
pages of words locked in my mouth
i don’t want you to forget
and i’m not ready to find out
maybe this isn’t like the last time
maybe i can stand it longer
maybe i won’t let my...
i didn’t like you all that much
the first night, second when we touched.
i told you, “i know how this goes,
and every man that’s been here knows.
you’ll start, then won’t stop thinking of me
C’est toi mon soleil
I don’t want to be wrong
You owe me a heartache, devotion, a song
And I said this would happen
You want me to love you
To close my eyes, butterflies when I’m thinking of you
when i was young i was so lonely
and always felt like i was wrong
i wrapped my wounds in simple verses
stitched my skin within each song
and every night i’d play them back
chant a tune under my b...
i fake a smile.
but then i think,
or is it real? and i only tell myself it’s fake because i want to be above it
more enlightened than that true delight
surely i’m more advanced than this...
i had that dream the other night
a funny boy i barely knew
my savior at the end of the hall,
we jumped into the swimming pool
broad shoulders locked me in their grasp
(somehow i still feel his ar...
When I was by myself,
I was alone.
When I am by myself,
I am without you.
i was dumb while with you
that i know for sure.
never happier, unabashedly cheesy
i told you that you had something in your eyes that sparkled.
i was not too cool for anything,
and we made out on...
how long until you criticize me for having feelings
fancied you(rself) enlightened but
you’re once again just another man,
all brute force dressed up in pastels and soft f...
Spark in your eye
But in also your spirit–
A smile does not have to be won from you.
No treasure hunt,
An open chest from which bursts forth
No harsher tones
i know you mean it
no efforts made to make my day
i am a petulant child
who thinks she is god
anger boiling over when people don’t say what i scripted for them
