infinite.

imagine if we met,
before time had burnt us;
before the heat
was pooled at my feet.

i would clasp your hand
for eternity;
and the grey burdens
would be warmer and shared.

silence could protect us,
as we built a nest:
preparing for hibernation
in an infinite winter.


list.

it wasn’t long
ago;
the whiteboard
was heavy
with ink
and ideals,
scrawling passion.

is it all
that surprising,
the maddening lust
has been replaced:
just give me sunshine,
and your hands –
i’ll be happy forever.


heart.

​i’m doing
it all wrong
again.
every moment
is a chance
for betrayal.
every moment
is a chance
to lose.

in my mind
it is not
a chance:
it is certain.
he will leave,
and you
will fall,
every knife pointed
at my own bloody heart. 


queue.

you say
it like a joke;
but where
is your self
worth?

watching the
queue form;
some will
fight for a
place.

others will
leave disgruntled;
some will
fight for what
they value.

but i won’t
wait in line
any longer.
i was patience
and quiet.

so fight for
your spot.
or leave
disappointed and
queued.


arms.

i never thought that you would be the one to hold my heart
but you came around and you knocked me off the ground from the start

you put your arms around me
and i believe that it’s easier for you to let me go
you put your arms around me and i’m home

how many times will you let me change my mind and turn around?
i can’t decide if i’ll let you save my life or if i’ll drown

i hope that you see right through my walls
i hope that you catch me ’cause i’m already falling
i’ll never let our love get so close
you put your arms around me and i’m home

the world is coming down on me and i can’t find a reason to be loved
i never wanna leave you but i can’t make you bleed if i’m alone

you put your arms around me
and i believe that it’s easier for you to let me go…

i hope that you see right through my walls
i hope that you catch me, ’cause i’m already falling
i’ll never let our love get so close
you put your arms around me and i’m home

i try my best to never let you in to see the truth
and i’ve never opened up
i’ve never truly loved till you put your arms around me
and i believe that it’s easier for you to let me go

i hope that you see right through my walls
i hope that you catch me, ’cause i’m already falling
i’ll never let our love get so close
you put your arms around me and i’m home

you put your arms around me and i’m home
