~damn you~

That’s what he did alright. He pulled so far away I was able to get on with my life. Gave me strength, that chill did.

But then he popped back into my existence, and the walls started to collapse. Read every fucked up feeling I had, that mind did.

Uncontrolled the tears streamed down my face, and I thought, damn you that’s not fair, taking me without permission as you did.

but that’s what he does

I can’t do that to you, take your soul down bare and steal your secrets. But that’s what you did.

~Even As I Dream~

I write you down for all the world to see, I wonder what you think as you look up at me.

I love how you never sleep, your stories creating form themselves even as I dream.

What do you see when you choose these words I see, I wonder what you did before you came to me.

I love how you never sleep, your rhymes creating sing themselves even as I dream.

I write you down for all the world to see, I wonder if you said these words to anyone but me.

I love how you never sleep, your rhythms creating tune
themselves even as I dream.

What do you see when you choose these words for me, I wonder what you did before these words you see.

~Scattered Words~

I read through all the words scattered at my feet, then looked up at you.

What? Do you expect me to do with all those things, scattered as they are.

Vowels lay on their sides, ands ifs and buts fought for a space among the verbs.

Question marks and exclamation points stabbed at the dirt and periods fell from the sky.

What? Do you expect me to do with all those things, out of place as they are?

I read all the words scattered as they were, and gathered their meaning to my heart.

I know What to do with you, I said, as a “fuck slipped through my fingers to land on a you” wedged in the earth.
