WILLPOWER

I know you’re going through trying times right now. There is a mountain of hardships you’ve had to overcome. Death, loss, and failure haunt you this year.   I wish I could take some of this burden from you  but just know I’m right beside you with a gentle hand.   I know it’s a lot to ask but  I…

I Wonder If I Cross Your Mind

I wonder if your sister ever got married. I wonder what you taste like. I wonder if your friend likes his job out of state. I wonder how strong your arms would feel wrapped around me.   I wonder if you wonder about me. I wonder if you remember the details of my life like I do yours.  I wonder how…

Sweet Memories

Kiss me I want to forget  that you’re no good for me. I know I should let  the memories of you stay dead But they taste so sweet  on my lips just like your kiss.   -Oct 2019

MY GHOSTWRITER

You don’t like what I’m writing now. I can understand you  not wanting to hear these things but you must understand  you’re the one putting me through this. If you don’t like yourself in this light then maybe you should step up. Walk a straighter path  and you won’t find yourself slipping on uneven ground.

You give the love you weren’t shown

You’re obnoxious  Shouting for the attention Your momma never gave you growing up. You are not your sisters. Parenting is not a one size fits all. You were sensitive and destructive. So you give out the love you never got because you never want your love  to be questioned like your 12 year old thoughts

I’LL BE YOUR EVERYTHING

I’ll be your friend I’ll be your lover. I’ll be anything just to have a piece of you. I’ll be your 2 AM call when you’re leaving the bar I’ll be your shotgun seat to the trip upstate  I’ll be anything just to spend some time with you. I’ll be your sunset to the perfect day together  I’ll be your…

Truly Through

Just when I think we’re finally done and truly through You reveal a part of yourself just for me. You say something that makes me wonder if we haven’t put each other through enough yet.   -Oct 2019

A Familiar Pain

You’re familiar and safe from vulnerability  You give me all your time yet I’m still left feeling  like I don’t measure up somehow. With you there’s no risk but somehow with you I still end up hurt.   -Oct 2019

WISHING WELLS

I have to come to terms with that fact that  you’ll never own up to all that you put me through. You deflect it enough that I wonder  if I’m losing my mind again with you. I’m trying to learn not to place the blame  in dark places or wishing wells. Sometimes they’re one in the same but I’m done…

 WILL YOU LET ME IN TONIGHT?  

If you’re going to close the door then just do it baby because I can’t spend my whole life always checking to see if  you still have a light burning for me.  So either slam that door or let me in.
