This time it was my time
To get you excited
For your birthday party.
I liked having ours
So close together
So that we could celebrate
Something for ourselves.
I already had your evening
Completely planned out,
And just a few hours ago,
Your present arrived in the mail.
I won't tell you this,
But my dad opened it up
Before I could get to it.
A wave of fear shot through me
While his face remained unreadable,
But then he looked up,
Saw me standing there gawking,
And smiled at me.
"She's a lucky one."
And that was all he said.

All adds up to you?

cafe lu, pretty... boring.

dancing with molly
not a care in sight
melodies transformed into radiant light.
or at least that's the magic
of pharmaceutically induced surplus serotonin
the way you dance and move
slightly awkward but very much cute
like a flower. although slightly wilted...
but enough candied compliments and shallow observation.

and that #amyguttman smile. apparently worth a few hundred likes.
that core filled with dreams and fears
naive as it may be
i feel that's the source of our vitality
gonna be honest mine's being overtaken by the unassuming doom of time
i'm desperate. typing my despair and lust into one overdrawn pick-up line.
263/1000 - CardWednesday, May 2, 2012263/1000 - Card1 day ago in Free Verse
I didn't have to work today,
So after I finished my homework,
I drove myself to the store
And browsed for a birthday card.
There were some...
But I found a simple one
That didn't have too much glitter
With plenty of room for me
To write you something inside.
I'd already ordered your present,
And it should arrive on time,
But I know how much you love
Reading anything I write.
When I checked out,
I grabbed two candy bars,
One for you
Because you were sweet
And hated when I did that,
And one for me
Because I was hungry.

"Is it already May?"
You asked the first time
We saw each other
After saying goodbye
The day after my birthday party.
Would never be the same
As talking in person,
But it was more fun now
That I could be wherever I wanted
And still have my laptop
With your face on my screen.
Right now I was in bed
Because it was late
And I'd already showered
By the time you'd finished your homework
And finally called me.
Though this time
I remembered to put a shirt on.
"It is May.
Guess who's birthday
Is in ten days?"
"Guess who's getting a birthday party?"
"Guess who's a good guesser?"
You are all for meYou are tall enoughYou are all for me3 days ago in Free Verse
to kiss all the clouds
and short enough
to say hello
to Mr Caterpillar Brown.
Don't you know
that you are all for me?
So don't be scared
of kissing me in the cheek
'cause I won't reject you
or laugh at you
if you say
"I love you"
You know all the things
that I've forgot
and all the recipes
of all the dishes
that I love
So, why you hide
your blushed face
when I discover you
looking at me sometimes?
Please, don't be scared.
I want to hear those words
from your lips:
please say to me
"I love you"
You speak every language
I want to know
and you have read
all the books
I want to read.
I know that you know
that I love you
and I also know
that you love me too.
So, tell me
why our love
cannot come true.

261/1000 - RedderSaturday, April 28, 2012261/1000 - Redder3 days ago in Free Verse
You had turned the AC off last night
Because you were too cold downstairs.
Me being upstairs almost burned to death,
So I slept in my sweatpants
Without a shirt on.
I forgot to put said shirt back on
Before I came downstairs.
Everything was fine at first―
My parents had both seen me,
And in fact,
So had you
When we went to Hawaii
And spent more time in bathing suits
Than actual clothes,
But to be fair,
That was not the case here.
Your face turned red,
Your eyes dropped,
And your face turned redder.
It spread to your ears,
And your jaw dropped
Ever so slightly,
And the silence was so awkward
That I was afraid
I'd forgotten my sweatpants too.
But when I glanced down to check,
The tip of my nose I could barely see
Was as on fire as you were.

but I already couldn't take my eyes of you
And the more I think about it,
the more it sinks into me.
I just can't stop the longing for you.
The longing to know you.
I'm going under in these thoughts
Agonizing curiosity just takes over.
Who are you?
How are you?
Do you like books? And poetry? And maybe odd handwritten letters?
Do you enjoy looking at art?
Do you think about me with the same cluelessness?
I'm too old for this…
just too old to feel my heart racing for someone I don't know a single thing about.
I know it's futile. I know it's just in my imagination
But my imagination is scarce.
I have nothing to hold on to.
Not a single detail I know about your soul.
And I can't stand this agony
'Cause I've never felt so curious.
Maybe I love mysteries.
Maybe it should stay this way.
'Cause everyone says it has no future.
I shouldn't be shaken
I shouldn't wonder what's your favorite song
But my soul is thirsty and my heart is weak.
I just can't sta

260/1000 - My Birthday PartyFriday, April 27, 2012260/1000 - My Birthday Party4 days ago in Free Verse
When the doorbell rang
Three hours after I returned home
From the very long school day,
I was the one to answer it
And draw you into a hug
While you told me,
"Where's your aunt?"
"She's with my uncle.
They're taking the weekend off
So that I can be here!"
"I'm glad you are.
Now what did you bring for me?"
After dinner together,
Alone in my kitchen,
My parents joined us,
And I opened my presents.
From my parents,
I received a laptop,
Which both lit you up
And shut you down.
"I didn't get you something that fancy,"
You said with a sad tone.
"But I think you'll still like mine,
You were wrong.
I loved it.
Non PartageAs I am weak to hate you,Non Partage4 days ago in Free Verse
As I cannot start anew,
The only thing I can do,
Is to forget I still love you.
Although I know I can't,
Although I feel torment,
I must definitely not relent,
To waste the time I spent.
For I know you don't love me
In the way I love you deeply,
I've decided to be with somebody,
I know that I might hurt greatly.
Let me be selfish
So I can accomplish
My earnest wish,
So let this pain perish.

i can’t feel. i tell people that, hand palming my heart,
that i cannot feel anything. it is a lie some days,
because around you, your mouth, your warm
breasts, softs hands, all of me feels like the centre of a star.
fingers writing poetry between your folds,
lips laughing against lone freckles, i feel.
alive, alive, alive, i feel alive, after so many people
carving chunks out of me, after i called death
on his cellphone and asked for a quick one
with piano music in the background.
after the hardest years with angry fire in my palms,
i am alive, alive, alive.
259/1000 - My BirthdayThursday, April 26, 2012259/1000 - My Birthday5 days ago in Free Verse
Despite the fact
That I'm celebrating my real birthday
I had a good time,
Especially at school
Where all my friends remembered,
And one from church
Even brought me a package of cookies.
Bought from the store,
But good nonetheless.
A few of the closest ones
Got me cards as a joke
And gift cards as real presents,
Even though I didn't need too many
Because I'm still saving up
All of my paychecks.
I don't know yet.
My mom made me a cake,
And we had dinner together.
She gave me a present,
And it's a bit heavy
And very rectangular,
But I'm deciding to save it
For this weekend
When you'll be here
To watch me open it.
Sad love storyA girl and guy were speeding over 100 mph on a motorcycle.Sad love story5 days ago in Free Verse
Girl: Slow down. I'm scared.
Guy: No this is fun.
Girl: No its not. Please, it's too scary!
Guy: Then tell me you love me.
Girl: Fine, I love you. Slow down! Guy: Now give me a big hug. (Girl hugs him)
Guy: Can you take my helmet off and put it on? It's bugging me.
In the paper the next day: A motorcycle had crashed into a building because of brake failure. Two people were on the motorcycle, but only one survived. The truth was that halfway down the road, the guy realized that his brakes broke, but he didn't want to let the girl know. Instead, he had her say she loved him, felt her hug one last time, then had her wear his helmet so she would live even though it meant he would die.
