Short little thought bubbles that appear when you aren’t looking.

Tonight

and tonight, I couldn’t have been any happier to have known you.

Because tonight, you have exhibited in all your splendor

what it means (to me) to be alive.

But now you, you will no longer have that chance–

to be happy to have known anyone–

because you,

You are breathless, timeless, hopeless.

and you are gone.

Love the Stars

The stars in the sky and the stars in the sea
mean nothing to me.
But the stars in your eyes
let me know I’m exactly where I need to be.

His Eyes, Her Eyes

If I tell you nothing else, I want you to know this: I will love you until tomorrow. The sweetest words a stranger could say, she thought, as they fell into bed– fell into love. Tomorrow never comes. The love that comes in fairy tales and is awoken by a kiss. She, too, would surely be awoken by a kiss tomorrow morning. The sun shinning in behind him, a perfect smile to awaken to. She has seen it at least a million times in music videos, commercials, and movies. Now she too, will spend her life happy.

If I tell you nothing else, I want you to know this: I will love you until tomorrow. Tomorrow isn’t that far away, he thought, since it wasn’t even midnight yet. And they fell into bed– fell into lust. I can wake up tomorrow and be home before breakfast. That is, if I can make it out before she wakes up. I bet I can even be quiet if I wake up still drunk. He has seen it at least a million times in movies, and a million more times in life. And now he too, will spend his life happy.

Wants and Needs

I can’t give you everything I want to; but that’s okay, because you can’t give me everything I need.

Be Yourself, Love

 

If you aren’t the person I dreamt you would be, you can still be you, and I will love you just the same.

To Be Free

I think I’ll take my pain
and fly
fly away
far from here, neglect all tears
falling from my newly
Angelic face
not looking back to see
all my shortcomings
and if you saw me now
I’d be sitting on the top of the world
if you saw me now
I’d have escaped from my metal cage
holding me down
free now and I’m flying
higher than ever with
these rental wings
foolish of me to think just
even for a second
that i was meant for this world
meant for this hectic perspective
because now i know that
flying is for me
and I’ll pay the rent
for those loaner wings
just to be free
just to be free.

Fallen Castles

If I tell you nothing else, I want you to know this: I will love you until tomorrow. Today was hard. Today was not worth fighting for. Today I am broken down, exhausted, and falling down, as though someone grabbed my core and shook me until I was no more than cement ruins of the castle that once stood where I stand now. Tomorrow it may rain down on this once-was-castle, but I’ve always said I love the rain. I’ve always said I love you more than the rain. But rain falls and sunshine dries it up like the perfect antagonist would. Tomorrow may have rays of sun shine down like a spotlight on this once-was-castle, but I’ve always said I love the sun. And I’ve always said I love you more than the sun. But the sunshine is so easily blocked by the rumbling of black rain clouds, the perfect antagonist. You and I both know that today was a hard day. And though I may not love you today, I can promise you this: I will love you until tomorrow.
