Should I Worry About Losing You?

I only wanted to feel close to you again Because my insecurities keep getting the best of me And I know it wouldn’t be fair To treat you like a convicted man So I keep my mouth shut And my softest thoughts open.   -October 2018+

Together Again

I fall apart as soon as you leave I need you so much right now And you let me fall into you with open arms. You make it so much easier to bear this weight. You put me back together again. -September 2018 +

Deep Sea

I fall apart without you. I won’t let pride get in the way Of saying I need you tonight. I’m drowning in myself And I need you to shine a light In these deep sea waters. I’m scared of what I can’t see in this darkness. -September 2018+

With Every Part of me, I Love You

I have a hard time taking ownership of my love Always leaving off the “I”s of my “Love You”s. I hope I’m saying enough To show you my love and appreciation With my lips and fingertips. My legs and heart. Soul and tongue. Mind and eyes. With every part of me.   -September 2018+

The Soundtrack to my Heart Break

I’m driving you to your house And there’s a song on the radio I’ve come to call yours. Every word perfectly fits in my breaking heart for you. So many nights driving alone Singing through tears as I think of you. And I sing along now as if you’re supposed to know that every line is meant for you. But…

You’re my Favorite Season

Spring was always my favorite season The warm sunshine on my face after so many dark and cold days The vibrant greens, pinks, and yellows instead of that stark, blank white. But then I met you in August And now I have summer nights walking the boardwalk Kisses in the sunsets Feeling light with the music playing on the radio…

One Thread Away

I’m not sleeping well anymore I’m plunging into any other reality I can get my hands on And isolating myself from the one I’m in I wake up sad and irritated Like I’ve already dragged myself through hours of social interactions I cried all night but I’m one thread away from coming undone again. -August 2018

Never Meant to be Mine

I know what I should be doing And that makes it even worse that I’m not. Everyone around me wants to help But I’m the one who has to put in the work. It’s easier said than done Feels like a battle that can’t be won. The frustration wears me down every time Not even sure if the view will…
