if my name had quotation marks
i hate how you live
a "Perfect" life without me;
what i hate more, though,
is the importance
two measly quotation marks
inherently hold

A Jedi Stole My Heart
Her eyes were like seas,
Her face as smooth as fine silk,
Her body, perfect.
She kidnapped my heart,
Just like a cute ninja,
The one that she is.
*sigh* But she and I,
On different sides of the field,
How can there be love?
Love is so hard, but,
She was just so beautiful,
Her soul just as nice.
A Jedi stole my heart,
And I don't mind.

Who to Choose
You’re a sweet kind man
You are always there for me
But possessive much?
You tried to kill me
You annoy me and tease me
But you died for me
You are a strict boss
You’re mysterious and rude
But you take the blame
I have three guy’s love
They make my heart pound and soar
But who do I choose?
Masaya, my first?
Kish, my opponent?
Ryou, my strict rude boss?

what's worth waiting for -
listen: you are not
romeo and i am not
juliet. you are
not a sailor or
a war hero or a prince.
we are not star-crossed
or meant to be. but
your fingers are stained with ink
and your eyes are full
of hidden stars and
when i'm with you i feel like
i could fly if i
had wings. you hate the
snow and love the rain and you
dance tentatively,
like a baby bird first
taking flight. your book of
auden's poetry
is dog-eared, and you
sing me lullabies under
your breath like secrets.
listen: we are not
perfect. i don't believe in
fate, or meant-to-be.
you hold grudges and wear
mismatched socks. we can't read minds
or last forever.
but i want to try.
because you are not perfect,
but you are perfect
for me. and when you
put your arms around me, i
can believe that it's
enough. ( i never
liked fairytales anyway.
and romeo and
juliet died in
the end. ) so just hold me close
and we can pretend
that planets in the
night sky align when we kiss
and angels sing when
we fuck. because all
that really matters in

Jaxter Haikus
His eyes are a blue
that can only be matched by
electricity.
-o-
Her hair's not quite as
soft as the look he gives me
when I'm in danger.
-o-
When I touch his skin,
I remember the old days.
I'm not so homesick.
-o-
She once questioned me
about what I had become.
He asked what happened.
-o-
They say he's lucky,
getting stuck with me. I think
it's the opposite.
-o-
She fell for some guy
with red hair and pretty words.
I hope she's happy.
-o-
We share our kisses
the way we share our secrets—
just with each other.
-o-
She tasted like earth.
Warm, a little worn out, shared.
He tastes like himself.
-o-o-o-
It's not love, because
I know it's bigger than that.
For now, it'll do.
-o-
He doesn't know this,
but I had a nightmare once.
He abandoned me.
-o-
I dived into the
worst pool of my whole life, once.
I hated swimming.
-o-
Sometimes when he sleeps,
I watch the shape of his mouth,
the curve of his jaw.
-o-
I hate this body.
I've always hated my skin.
He makes me think twice.
-o-
So he ma
