What Fear Does to Me

I know it’s not right to punish you My misplaced anger changes with the slightest shift in the wind. So I keep my voice low When my thoughts are loud. And wonder how long you’ll put up with this.   -October 2018

Focus

Lightning strikes on my left And the thunder rolls to my right But there’s not a storm that could stop Me from walking straight to you.   -Sept 2018

Morning’s Gift

Laying next to you Staring at you sleeping Delicate eyelashes and soft lips Cocooned in these blankets Safe from the realities of our lives Until day breaks.   -Sept 2018 +

Keep me Safe at Night

I always sleep better next to you When you’re by my side to fight The monster under my bed And in my head. And if you paused for a moment You’d realize you sleep better Lying next to me too.   -September 2018 (+)

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+
