To see that you would never come
running back to me
run back to me.
I can't see straight

I'm falling faster now
Don't leave me here
when all I need
is for you to take my hand
so I can breathe.

"Let's go out somewhere,"
As soon as I sat down.
"It's been too long,
And I've missed you."
"I've missed you too,"
Happy to see you
And happy to see you healthy.
Or at least looking healthy.
Seeing the lack of a smile
On my face.
"You miss school a lot,"
I said quietly.
Your eyes fell to the floor,
As did the corners of your mouth.
"Why is that?"
I really am.
"You don't have to tell me,"
I said quickly,
Saving you from as much embarrassment
You're not terminally ill,
You looked up at me,
Eyes wide with surprise.
No I'm not sick,"
Making me sigh
"So this weekend?"

Avalon brown with remnants of Al Cielo and
sparkling with indecision; oh boy, did you know
how deadly they were, even against the gray
backdrop of Ellis High School?
A locker slams as you retreat, angrily
after my unfinished goodbye-song.
Well, I'm sorry I'm not as easy to forget
as you thought, my spoiled Halloween-night.
Half-moonbeam, now you know it feels..
Yeah, I hope you know that for me, it never was a joke.
I hope you understand now that you're cold and thirsty;
sitting up in your room, without the chords from
my ukelele playing in your head, without my cream-soda
vintage lips tracing patterns along your brass-toned
abdomen, your hollow oak-stomach, that you see that
love isn't a dart-board you can shoot poison arrows at.
No, it's not even a silly concept;
a note passed around in class,
wilting daisies on your doorstep.
I know you care about me but
you're going about this the wrong way, boy.
You're expecting too much from a girl

I feel so bipolar in this relationship,
With our highest highs
And crashing and burning lows.
Is this good for us,
Being apart for so long?
Not speaking to each other
For days at a time?
I can only wonder
What you think about
While we're away from each other,
Hoping you think about me
At least once in a while,
Often enough that you remember
How it felt to have my arms around you.
Who am I kidding?
I think I'm being dramatic.
I just miss you,
Which you already knew.

The high of our first kiss has worn off.
Sitting in English by myself,
I'm getting away with not paying attention
By writing in this journal.
I'm sad you're gone again,
And you're probably not happy
Missing so much school,
Considering how hard you work
For all of the good things you get out.
I could go back and count
How many times you've been missing.
Though maybe you aren't missing.
Maybe you're just at home
But not dying.
You're too smart to be dying.
I'll stop writing
Because I have to pay attention now
And stop making myself worry about you.
Like + Crush = LoveLike turns into a crush, then a crush turns into love, then that love turns into hurt. The cycle repeats over and over until you learn that love hurts more than it should. And when you learn that, you also learn that your love never loved you back. When you learn that, you break, break into two. One piece is the hurt and betrayal you felt. The second piece is the love you've kept. The second piece molds into you and you love again, but a shard of hurt and betrayal lays unseen on you. So when you find your second love the first piece grows reminding you of your crush and your love. That piece makes you reflect of how many times you tried and tried to get your loves attention of many years. The shard grows bigger. Over lapping the first shard. Making it hard to breath. You're sinking, drowning in your tears. The hurt takes over and you break free of the love you've given your second love. Afraid of being betrayed. The shard eventually becomes you.

"Have you been writing in it?"
You asked one morning
When you saw the journal you got me
Sitting on my desk.
I said with a smile.
You smiled back at me,
Clearly happy that I put it to use.
"What have you been writing?"
This time your face was curious,
And that drastic difference,
As well as your obvious happiness,
Almost made me tell you.
I answered teasingly,
Pulling the journal closer to me.
How could I tell you
I've been writing poems to you,
So many poems to you,
Without sounding like a stalker
With malicious intentions
And explicit content?
I puzzled over that question
For the rest of the day,
And now that I'm at home,
With all my homework done,
With nothing to do but sit
And write another poem
On another page of this journal,
I don't have an answer.

I didn't know what i was feeling but i thought i might be able to hear what it sounded like.
So i sat in my room, in the dark, and played until my body told me to stop.
I played for about 3 minutes, and i know this because i recorded it in the hopes that i could put it on paper, and turn my pain into something beautiful.
However, when i played it back, It was a symphony of wrong notes and chords that didn't make sense.
You. And Me. Made so much sense!
And we were finally gonna be together, looking 'dapper', dancing awkward, never feeling more alive, but that night,
when you gave me the news, part of me died,
and my hands gave a eulogy that was about 3 minutes long.
I never made it into a song, because hearing it, brings me back to that night, and i never want myself or anyone to ever feel that way again.
Oh yeah, and that girl t

You didn't bring a sweatshirt today.
I could see your figure again,
And you didn't hide as much.
You even raised your hand,
Answering a question
I knew you knew the answer to.
Our teacher smiled at you,
That you were opening up,
But I got a less happy look,
Probably for paying more attention to you
Than to the lesson.
"You're very happy,"
I said on the way to math.
"I think it's the warmer weather,"
As you slid a free hand
Laughing at myself.
You laughed too,
Looking your prettiest
While you were happier
In the warmer weather.

Back at school,
You were smiling,
And you couldn't stop smiling.
When I teased you about it,
Which made me laugh,
And when the bell rang
For first period,
You bit your lip
To keep from laughing.
While we were reading,
Every time I glanced over at you,
You were trying not to smile
I had to try hard
Not to laugh at you again.
I didn't have to ask
To know you had a good time
On Valentine's Day.

I saw your freckles and how some made pictures.
I saw your thoughts scribbled on a ripped piece of paper.
I saw how your eyes light up at the smell of coffee.
I saw the beginnings, middles, and ends of your rants.
I saw how you acted with your family.
I saw I was noticing things you didn't
I think I'm in love with what I saw and it was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.

I kissed you twice in that park,
Once because I wanted to,
And once again
Because you asked me to.
Then we walked back to the mall
And warmed up in a coffee shop
Before my mom picked us up
To take us back to my house.
There we went through your things
To make them all manageable
For you to carry home,
Then found something to watch.
You munched on popcorn,
Curled up next to me,
And put your bare feet
Up on the couch
Beside your legs.
I wrapped my arm around you,
Moving only occasionally
To keep it from falling asleep.
We were both content
Up until you had to leave.
I wanted to walk you home,
Since my mom was busy with work,
And you lived within walking distance,
But you insisted
To go on your own.
I settled for giving you
A goodbye kiss.

We walked hand-in-hand
Through the deserted park
Blanketed by snow.
After a little bit of silence
To take in the beauty of it all,
I pulled you over
Off the invisible path
To stop under a few tree branches.
"What is it?"
Still holding on to my hand.
I had to let go
In order to dig out your gift,
Which you protested to.
"You've already gotten me things..."
But that didn't stop me.
Your face lit up
Brighter than the sunlit snow
As you whispered,
You hugged the books to your chest,
Smiling contently to yourself
Before turning to dig in your purse.
"I... I got you something, too,"
You said slowly.
But I noticed you writing a lot,
And you pulled out a blank book.
It was bound
In fancy leather,
And the very first page
Had a very cute signature from you.
"I love it,"
I told you immediately,
Carefully setting down everything
To give you a hug.

I woke up that morning
To the ringtone
I had set for you.
"Guess who got contacts!"
Was my only message
I pulled my phone off its charger
And rolled to my back
We flirted a little
Back and forth
Before I decided to get up
And get ready.
After I ate lunch,
My mom drove me to your place.
"I got it!"
I heard from inside
When I rang the doorbell.
You opened the door,
And I couldn't help but smile widely
At your pretty face,
Now lacking glasses.
Without the black frames,
Your eyes looked bigger,
Brighter with the makeup
You'd started wearing
Ever since Halloween.
Your pink and white dress and scarf
Brought out the pink
In your strawberry blonde hair.
"Are you going to stand here forever?"
Your face now red.
I replied with a smile.
"You look really pretty."
You glanced down at yourself,
Then back up at me
With a smile.
"You look good too,"
Before we got back in the car

Passion in her touch.
I found a feeling unbeknownst to me before this moment.
I found a love so pure,
So unbelievably amazing;
I couldn't move.
I was frozen in her arms,
My heart being unlocked as she peered deep into my eyes.
Her oceanic gaze only accentuated by her crystalline-blue pearls of beauty.
I want to take her to places unknown,
Dance under starlit skies as our hearts connect as one.
I want to whisper my love in her ear.
I want her to uncover the secrets of our love, buried deep in the chambers of my heart.
I want her to be the queen of my castle,
The keeper of my keys,
The owner of my heart,
The soldier of my soul.
I want her to be the one that brings me joy,
I want her to be the one that brings me love beyond compare.
I want her to feel the passion that runs through my veins at the mere thought of her.
I want her to be captivated by my gaze.
I want her to be proud, amazed, and happy to be with me.

I used to like Saturdays.
I could sleep in,
And I didn't have to do work
Or get dressed out of sweats,
But now that I have you,
I don't like Saturdays.
I don't get to see you,
I don't get to talk to you,
And today is the worst of all
Because I have to wait
An entire day
Before going on a date with you.
I just want to see your face
When you lift the tissue paper
Out of your present bag
And take out the books
Because I remembered
What you told me
Quite a while ago.
I'm getting even more impatient.
