Poem Quotes

“People look JOLLY today he thought,   digging his LAIR in the blanket.   “Before I’ve rarely seen such liveliness and GLEE.   What happened to the GLOOM of cold,   GRIM winter days?”   And TUGGING at the SWAG of spiny holly leaves   he GASPED, surprised and STUNG   and wondered, rightly so,   “What is so special in this icy day of late December   to CRAM the house with thorny branches,   GILDED ribbons, balls and pines?   For me all days are equal,   I BASK, idle, chase rats,   it may sound empty or boring   but that’s the life of cats!

I don't look at the world the way I once did.
I use to find words in silent places,
like the space between two yearning hands,
or the waiting room of a hospital.
Lately I only see in black and white,
lately, I don't find poetry between the lines.
Lately I find myself becoming more and more unfeeling.

You can call something home, and still feel
okay to leave for a while.

That is why I always return here.

I don't want to be a flower, I want to be an evergreen
Don't tell me I must die and come back only in Spring
I want to breathe in the cold of winter and live in the tears of autumn
I want to watch cities crumble, and people rebuild what's left
There are meteors waiting to collide with us,
this is just the beginning.
I don't want to be a flower, I want to be an evergreen
I'm tired of having wilted petals, and tender hands caressing me
I am sturdy, I hold my own
I want to constantly renew myself until the rest of the world
doesn't stand a chance.

thankful i can time travel using my mind.
always going back to you and i.

TBN 12/10/18 sneak peak/rough draft
Sometimes it feels like you can read my mind.
I wanted to be with you, and just kiss you,
and you said “be mine right now”.
Sometimes it feels like you can read my mind.
I wasn’t feeling to great,
but I had this behavior for you to not know,
but I still wanted to tell you,
and you reassured me and told me we can talk, if needed.
Sometimes it feels like you can read my mind.
Sometimes if feels like you can read me.
You knew everything before I could even think it.

well darling, congratulations, I wish I had that sort of inner-peace

i saw you today, i cried. i feel stupid, i dislike yet love you. i've tried to move on, i thought i made progress then i saw you and it all went away, all the moving on, and the trying, right then and there i knew i madly loved you...i wanted to be okay if id ever saw you, i wanted to be able to not love you, i guess its just not my time, im so tired of trying, i wish i could just do it...


 
Southwest Gothic
weather vanes spinning wildly even though there's no wind
sunsets bathing everything in saturated light before all the color disappears
old homesteads leaning to one side
everything covered in cobwebs
walking in the desert alone
but you're not alone
someone on the crest is crawling with you
waking up to the sound of a complete downpour but looking outside and it hasn't rained even a drop
your walls have eyes
and they've seen
