the promises i can't keep

I can't promise forever,
I can't even promise two hours from now,
but if you give me your heart,
I swear I will try,
to care for it,
and never leave you behind.

another thursday

I burned my eyelashes reading
in the hopes of meeting you today
and you simply went away.

I scarred my feet rushing
in the hopes of running into you
and you simply looked away.

free pass

She gave me a pass to the other side, I said no, good girls never try.

no words

Feeling close despite the distance.
Let me see you again,
and here I am,
cam on.
I look at you,
and just smile.
No words.

the things that i meant

"A heart was meant to beat. And air was meant to be breathed, close to your ear. And your skin was meant to remember what mine felt like. And some songs were meant to play on repeat. And the sun was meant to come down. And we were meant to ignore it when it woke up. And days were meant to pass. And nights were meant to follow. And your eyes were meant to cry out whatever pain was left."
 -I wrote this for you (http://www.iwrotethisforyou.me/2012/02/things-i-meant.html)


I'm leaving you, 
going to brighter lands,
please be nice 
to the loved ones I left behind.

i'll never leave you

You kept crying, explaining how people always leave you and I sat there and held your hand all along.

the romantic in me

Sometimes I let her out for minutes, hours, even days at a time, then she finds a bump in the road, falls, scratches her knee and I lock her again where she's safe.

death by song

There's a melody that kills me every time. I click play and let myself die once again, 3 minutes at a time.

the danger of believing

Your words entangled me and I wanted to believe in anything just to hold on to something, that's how I ended up losing what I can never get back.

the exception

You are not the kind to break promises but with me you always did. I noticed.

the freedom I lost

I will never be free, 
they will make sure of that.

I will always be caged by them.
They will always cut my wings.

give it time

It (love) will come when it needs to, if it needs to... if not I'll be fine just waiting.

just right

To loving until it hurts, 
to daydreaming,
to walking on clouds, 
to never leaving your side,
February will be just right.
