Would You...?If I told you I loved you,Would You...?6 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Would you give me the sky?,
Would you look up at God,
And tell Him it's mine?
If I told you I loved you,
Would you give me the stars?,
The ones as bright as your eyes are?
If I told you I loved you,
Would you look at me here,
And tell me to shout it,
So the world could hear?
If I told you I loved you,
Would you stay?,
When you find out who I am,
Why I act this way?
No, I think You'll leave,
And say 'Goodbye',
And leave me alone,
To sit here and cry

I first met him on a hill where I used to go quite often to paint landscapes. It was a small hill but it stood out from the surrounding plain and gave an infinite view all around. The feeling was in a way crushing... the vastness of the great plain, the silence around, broken only by the occasional storms... and I must tell you, a storm in these places can rush over the grounds like a plow in an empty field.
So yeah, I first met him there, while I was installing my canvas. He was a kid like any other, medium built, bright hair that turned almost white in the sun. I've never seen him before and I wondered about it, since the next nearest village was somewhat far away. He was intently staring at the sky towards a huge cumulus cloud that slowly changed shape like a fluid cauliflower. It took him a full minute to notice me and when he did, he turned and grinned as if I had something funny on my face. But then he turned right back and resumed his observation and after a while I knew that I

we are the clutter and chaos of numbers and equations, exponents and variables, that conquer the pages once meant for the shadowy sighs of poetry.
we are the laws undiscovered, the phantoms that defy gravity and the speed of light.
we are the planets in orbit around an unknown sun.
we are the poltergeistic fog that gathers in valleys far beneath the cloud-splattered blue.
we are the laughter that means nothing and the school bells that bind us from reaching beyond this lifetime.
we are the written and spoken word, the song, the ghosts of hallways and seashells drifting on the shore.
we are the skeletons that lie buried beneath centuries of life and death and decay.
we are the silent and the screaming, the rising and the falling.
we are the moment that writhes between the cracks and folds in the sweaty palms of our clenched fists.
and we are ready.

When I was a child the flames used to lick up my walls and leave burned-black saliva trails. I would peek through the door cracks to see if my things had been devoured yet, and then I would press my back against the wood and slide all the way down to the cold floor. I would wake up on the same floor with bruises under my chin from falling out of bed, and falling out of bed. I looked like an abused child while I was watching television on the white leather couch.
Mama, I am afraid of the wolves.
When I was a child the windows would go blank chalkboard slate and I would stand in the middle of the room, teaching myself to breathe. The branches were scratching to get in with their husky claws, their bark fingers; but the wolf was already behind me. When I screamed he snatched my white-socked foot in his jaws and punctured through my skin and my metatarsals. When I woke up my socks were missing and the blood-red wound had given way to pink baby skin; it crash
TransatlanticismI feel I am dreaming with the way your lips curve upward from behind frowning eyes, with the way your skin brushes warmly against mine, tomorrow I will not wake. I am drunk with the beat beat beating of your pulse and the way it melts into mine, and while I swim through the lullabies of your too soft voice I will struggle to keep from falling, because you are pulling me into waters too deep for me to resurface.

You breathe light, like clouds lingering sweetly in the air while you watch patiently as I pluck stars from the Milky Way to match the ones in your eyes. I will lock them away in a glass jar and make them shine for me the way your eyes do, then I will lock the secret smile you will give me in my heart because I know I may never see it again.

Today, I am blue, and you are red; today the fear begins again.
The sky is a milky white and your eyes are an empty grey, but you somehow still manage a smile: this is the first thing I notice. The second is that your shoes are untied, then that your gaze seems unfocused, then that your hair is a disaster, then that your voice sounds like rain and I hate rain.
You catch my stare.
I turn away because I am afraid.
You are uncertainty and unpredictability, and for this, I hate you; the unexpected is a disease to my mind. You make me stumble and fall and vomit in confusion because I don't know how to feel and I can't stand it. Control is my obsession.
But you are also curiosity and maybe even some kind of messed up beauty, and I think I might be okay with that much.
Today I am indigo; today you are my vertigo.

Three Words- No Meaning
I just realized I love you.
I know, I always have said 'I love you', but they were only words. I didn't mean it, then. I'm sorry for lying, but does it count as lying if I didn't even know it at the time? Whether or not it does, I'm sorry and I want you to forgive me. Please.
Although, now that I'm think about it, I think you knew. I had always wondered why whenever I said 'I love you', a flash a sadness would appear in your eyes. Well, I have my answer now. I'm sorry, I'll make it up to you somehow, someday. But whenever that is, it won't be right now. Right now I have to find you and tell you that I love you.
And this time, I mean it.
With all my heart,

But please don't
You being here destroys me
And makes me feel wonderful
I wish I'd never met you
Because then I'd never have felt this love
And I falter
And I fly
And I fall
And I get back up again
And I can't make up my mind
Because the confusion is kind of lovely
But it's all just turmoil
With sweet pinches of bliss
Enough to make me happy
But still to make me cry
Your words make me smile
And your silence stings my heart
And I'd love to cut you out of it
But I think it'd stop beating
And if it stop beating
Leave me forever
Be beside me always
I just wish this
Go on forever.
