you will give all of yourself to a boy who won't know you at all.
he will recycle your parts, make you stationary, bind you into
paper that he will gift back so you can write poetry about him.
you, too, say i love you quickly.
when he doesn't say it back, evaporate.
he will kiss you in places you didn't know existed.
until him, you were a peasant in your body's palace.
he crowned you princess, broke the lock of your castle's gates.
when he doesn't say it back, load your cannons.
you are a fountain pen.
look him in the eye when you write him letters on your skin.
when he asks to read them, surrender.
you have always been this way: too eager
to make wildflowers bloom inside of him.
when he doesn't say it back, trim the stems.
when he tells you that your eyes remind him of tree bark,
show him that your gaze is sturdier than nature's limbs.
without breaking eye contact, slowly back him into a wall.
when he expresses discomfort,
ask if he knows what choking is like.

Exactly how I feel about you
Emotions are hard
But words are harder
You think that no one cares
No one could be bothered
To talk to you
To comfort you
To love you
This couldn't be any
Farther from the truth
I will always be there
In one form or another
I hope you understand that

I miss you.
Wow, what an odd thing to say.
The way you'd look.
The way you'd be.
It taunts me every day.
I miss the smiles I'm sure you'd give me,
If I happen to look your way.
I miss your touch, the way you'd hold me,
If I happen to have a bad day.
The way your voice, of this I'm sure,
Would chase away my grey.
Oh dearest person I've yet to meet,
Won't you please come back to stay?

Burns like my skin.
As I'm awaiting the touch of
Your cold fingertips,
Although I know I shouldn't,
I've come to love
The shape our breath makes
When intertwined like our bodies
Your burning kisses never fail
To light me up inside
And your soft touch
Seems to envelop me
In a cyanide cloak
In your hands, I surrender
And you quickly destroy my very being
And I know that, if I were to be smart
I'd make you leave
Because I know just how
Bad you are for me, but still
I lay here in your fiery embrace
And I can't leave
Because I know
Just how short your forever can be
So, right now, I'll make due with this
Broken piece of infinity
And attempt to stall the wounds
You don't know that you'll make
I miss you so muchOh cherished girl,I miss you so much1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
There are no words to explain how much you miss me.
Why do you keep vanishing? Leaving my distracted mind by itself.
Why do I need you like humanity needs bright souls? I want this magic sparkle to light my mind up.
Why do you keep reasoning like a lost and fading echo? I'm searching for you throughout my hollow loneliness.
A burning desire to tear my twisted consciousness apart -
I'd ardently kiss you if you had bleeding lips,
Reach the close sky to choke these demonic stars.
Iron willpower by my side, pointed horns on my skull...
Is that devilish I'm willing to do anything for you?
For this thin shape of your sneaky shadow
For this bewitching fragrance of your caresses
For your feathery and appeasing presence...
I crave, like no one else does,

that can keep you
out of my thoughts.
to see you
is to see stars,
and i'm dizzy enough
with the image of you
right before dawn
stuck in my head,
but i want more.
i have the instinctive need
to run a finger down your
neck, to memorize
how you look when you
smile, just so that i can
write about you,
to make you realize
how spectacular you are.

just wishing each tendril could be your arms
and that this warmth
radiated from your chest.
but you're gone,
so far away,
even though you live right across town.
i wonder if you ever think of me
like i think of you.
bring me back:
i want your venom,
course it through my veins.
take my blood,
burn my soul.
take me back:
feel for me, something please
i'll take your hate
if you aren't offering love.
feel free to drown me
in those watercolor paints.
you're still gone,
and now the smoke has followed you
i guess there's nothing
i can hold on to.

soft snow flakes outline pale skin,
My love is the sweet spring.
The fresh smell of blooming cherry trees
gentle like her.
My love is the warm summer.
Almost like an embrace
the ones that I miss.
My love is the breath of fall.
A bittersweet taste hanging in crisp air,
beautiful like changing leaves.
My love is far away now,
in heavens skies.
But I can still feel her, she is with me, in the seasons change.

When I am without you, I see you when I sleep.
Impressions that mesmerize me, engraved on my mind.
Exuberant fascinations that I've felt a million times.
A blistering inferno ravaging my skin,
burning with such urgency, demands me to give in.
My dreams of you so life like, I can feel your whispered breaths,
your body heat engulfs us as I taste your luscious lips.
My imagination is owning me with vibrant thoughts of you,
so intense and controlling, that I believe it's true.
The purest thing on earth would be, Making Love to you.
