"He loves me."
His smile is the galaxy I live and breathe in.
I pull off a petal.
And when he can't make time for me, that's okay.
He makes up for it in his kisses.
I pull off a petal.
The other girls don't matter
Because he comes home to me.
It hurts a little but I deal with it
Because he is the sun and the stars.
I pull off a petal.
He may ignore me sometimes
But deep down I know he cares.
I pull off a petal.
I'm hurting, but I need him.
He's the only one in my head.
He's the air in my lungs.
I pull off a petal.
"He loves me not."

When our fingers lace, they hold tight for hours.
You don't just finish my sentences
I swear you read my mind.
We're a well oiled machine.
Like the ebb and flow of the sea.
We're becoming one body, one soul.
You and me.
We're meant to be.

We stand underneath the night sky
And gaze up at the stars.
We are two small specks of dust
Attached to each other by tangled fingers.
My toes wiggle deeper into the sand
As I watch you splash around in the warm water.
Sometimes it's hard to believe there's a universe out there.
But we'll see it someday.
Together, hand in hand,
We will explore this huge galaxy.
We will make our own discoveries.
We will search for adventure
All the while we hold tightly to each other.
Because I see the universe in your eyes and your heart.
Because no matter how far we go
We'll still be two little dots

not bothering to listen or take notes but instead
looking down onto the numbers and letters at her fingertips
and drawing the square roots and functions up in her mind
graphing virtual abstracts of you that
her unsteady hands lacked the deftness to create in her notebook.
she had tried a thousand times, though,
sharpening the pencil over and over
and adjusting this exponent and that denominator to get nearer to your curvature
in hopes of a more accurate depiction
in hopes of a smaller margin of error
but she ran out of lead faster than your face ran through her head
and erasers and echoed lines
are flimsy compensation for such an injustice to your irresponsible perfection.
so she forewent paper
instead latching tight onto the afterimage
which contained a calm, unstirred world
where the cream in her coffee spiraled into art and froze mid-oblivion
where the clicks of locks on doors meant
nothing more than solitude
with her thoughts

I don't have to look at the moon
anymore; hoping that you will be
looking too. The stars dance
around the moon like all those
other girls do, because they want
to be with you.
Envy begins to the poison that
sets into my veins; how any of
those girls could make you feel
like you've found the one but I'm
just going to be that girl that
sits on the side wishing that
you could love me.
You won't even know anything about
me but, I know so much about you,
my dear. The way that you smile the
definition of happiness, to the way
your voice plays a symphony that is
I begin to fall in love with you
all over again, like I did before.
Nothing could make me feel so safe
and warm in a cocoon except for you;
looking at me with those blue eyes
that are brighter then the ocean
itself making it jealous of you.

pero era demasiado timida para hablarte
de modo que solo te contemplaba desde lejos
y te seguía a escondidas, no quería asustarte.
Al principio hablamos limitadas ocasiones
te veía muy poco pero en mi mente
siempre estabas presente,
a cada segundo
a cada instante,
era inevitable recordarte...
Hasta que un día, después de mucho esperar
me armé de valor y me acerqué a charlar,
no sabía si era una buena idea
pero ya no podía aguardar la espera
Tu mirada tan dulce
tu sonrisa angelical
hicieron que me derritiera
que se nuble mi pensar
Al día siguiente me escribiste,
me preguntaste si quería salir
yo muy emocionada
dije sin pensar "¡si!"
Disfrutamos de la danza
de un cielo estrellado
bebiendo te bajo el árbol
me estrechaste un abrazo
La miel es más dulce
cuando la pruebo de tus labios
las noches son más frías
cuando no estoy a tu lado

that one thing is for certain; forever.
I want to spend my life with you
forever and ever, even after we die and
gone to heaven I still want to be with you
forever because to have someone like you
in my life is all I ever wanted as a little
girl; you have completely made me the
most happiest person that I've ever been in
the longest time.
Your my soul mate that I don't want to ever
want to live without knowing that I've
found you. I want you to hold me in your
arms endlessly, never letting me go because
I feel so secure and toasty to have your arms
wrapped around my waist; having your lips
gently press on my cheek and slowly work your
way down to my lips all the way to my neck,
how sweet the kisses feel on my skin.
A blitz feeling starts to works it's way into
my veins. I put hands on your back feeling all
the muscles and bones that you have; how
muscular your back feels, it sends adrenaline
to my brain, I begin to kiss your lips softly.

Time to see what I have done
Washing over me like a wave
Forcing me to try and save
My sandcastle, under the sea
Who is my lover, and the key
To happiness in eternality
Perhaps the snow is just
The barrier before my lust
If they love me they'll let me go
Push my way into the snow
Kiss him gently, one more time
Why must love be such a crime?
He is my light, my guiding flame
So why does society need to shame
The reason why I even came?
I just want to fall asleep at night
Close to him, my shining light
Warm with plenty of time to go
Safe from every flake of snow
I'll take it slow.
I'm Not In LoveI can’t say I’m in loveI'm Not In Love4 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
Cause I’m not sure I know what love is
I can’t say you’re enough
Because I have no idea
What lies ahead,
All I know is now
And how we talk every night
Trying to fight
The urge to sleep
How we jam out in your car
To Taylor Swift and Macklemore
How you always say you love me more,
You help me with my math
Cause I’m no longer good at it
We laugh and laugh
Trying to forget
The tears the conversation started with,
You tell me I’m pretty
And I’ll find someone someday
Who is just as amazing as I am
But I wish it were you…
I can’t tell if I’m in love
I’m too young,
I don’t know enough
But I do know
I never want to end it

Will you still love me?
If our hearts stopped beating
Would you forgive me?
If the earth stopped spinning
Would you still hate me
Yes I know darling you still hate me, your hate for me burns like a raging inferno.
I understand no matter what I will always love you.
The truth is you could take everything I love, strip me down from everything, break me, even slit my throat and I would still love you.
You raised me from the hell I was drowning in, the black abyss I was trapped in for so long.
To this day I don't know why you would do that just to leave me!
I did everything you asked.
I stood up for you.
I fought for you
I would have even taken a bullet for you...
but still your pierced that knife through my back grinning the entire way
I would have done anything for you
Even if you died I would have died with you
Even if that meant taking my own life and losing my wings

Climbing up the steep slope
Completely enveloped in summer
Night's warm embrace
My goal silhouetted against the moon
The Withered old tree stood
Covered in the scars of forgotten promises
Placing a hand on the old bark
I remove a pocketknife into my hand
Staring at the blank spot
I recall memories from my life,
My first steps, my first Dance
My first Love, My first broken heart.
The tears come before I can stop them
Even now the scars still hurt
Clenching my fist I closes my eyes
Trying to contain the pain
Suddenly I feel a pair of arms
Wrap around my shoulders
Opening an eye I saw
Arms made of starlight
Turning 'round I saw him
My star, the only one who cared
I hadn't spoken to him since I was young
But that didn't matter to him
He smiled and hugged me again,
"Do not worry." He whispered into my ear
"Though you've grown, I'll still be here."
He held onto my shoulder and smiled at me
I said with more tears than ever
"How can you still care? I almost forgot you were ther

Obviously I didn't know it then, because I was too infatuated with older boys with messy blond hair.
But now it's summer, and the heat is doing weird things to my feelings

But then again I've always been an autumn kind of girl, so I can't be surprised that you have

One beautiful girl,
Can make such a dramatic change,
And send my universe into a whirl.
When I see you,
I can’t come to grips,
When you touch my world,
With your fingertips.
I’d talk to you,
I’d comfort you,
I’d love you,
I scream for you.
I love you and yet,
Because of you my blood drips,
Heal my wounds or make them worse,
With your fingertips.
All of my pain and agony,
All of it is for you,
You are the reason,
I am black and blue.
Just a little touch,
Perhaps of your lips,
You could change my world,
With your fingertips.

In the midst of the dark
The question I lack the courage to ask
The inquiry lodged in my heart
"I don't know," I say
And I try to figure out
What he wants my answer to be
Or should I just shout
We're on a rooftop anyway
On top of the elementary school
We could get in trouble if we stay
But no one checks in the dead of Summer
"Are we anything?" he asks
"We're something," I say back
"Should we become an 'us'?"
"I don't want us to become nothing"
For the first time in the three hours
We've spent listening to school air conditioners
We're saying something now
We could be our saviors or our executioners
You're being brave tonight
And I'm being quiet
What a role reversal
That doesn't feel wrong or right
It's easier to call you a friend
But do friends stare at the stars
Hold hands and spout profound words
Under the clear dark?
I want to be more than your friend
But I'm scared
I don't want us to end
No one goes back to being friends
I'm brave enough to face murderers

at the dates,
which stacked up
reminding her that life was slipping through her fingers
which filled her with a profound sense of grief

Even writing took seconds,
seconds that could have been spent doing other,
more productive things.
This terrified her with a terror

Even the music that played

it was almost as if she paid a price for
