becoming varicosei'm slipping off the edge, they say. my arms are silly strings and i am wound up in a knot i can't untie. and i am quote unquote on my final leap, my sinking ship, my vein of life becoming varicose. i'm not quite up for a second drink, as they say, they say.becoming varicose6 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
doctors are no scientists, they tell me. it's not my abandonment of whole foods causing stomach pains, it's me. i have gone too far, too high, too deep, and they are sorry, but this is a bleach stain by a broken machine, not a programming fault. they say.
they take me outside and wrap me head to ankle in dish cloths, curtains, pillow cases. they say, this is what you're missing, this is the hard cover, lamp shade, roof top of something you never had. they say, don't be sorry, we couldn't fix everyone, anyway.
they pull my silly strings and tell me, knit something. i say, some other time, i don't feel like it today.
5 o'clocksometimes its 5 oclock at night and i havent thought about you all day5 o'clock6 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
but more often than not its 5am and i cant get you off of my mind
and with every extra hour of sleep you steal away
i add a mark to your side of wall
until it tells me who i need back more
you or myself
and even when im exhausted from your night time dream invasions
ill spend my morning meticulously getting myself ready
and performing every single action as though youre watching

Falling Inlove Againmy world is full of confusion,Falling Inlove Again9 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
of love and lust and fear.
but when i see you, it's like magic,
and i remember nothing.
the touch of your skin on mine,
and the smell of your body close by,
and to see your smile infect those eyes...
i'm falling inlove again.
you speak to me and hold me close,
promise me things i won't need.
because it's how you show you love me,
much more than i love you...
i miss the sound of your voice,
telling me everything...
when your eyes beg for me to know.
don't let your lips speak to another
i will be there soon, to hear everything,
everything you want to say.
i miss it all,
the way it used to be...
but i look forward, too.
to how things will be.
not you and i. just us.

It was so simply structured, bordering on formal. One event after the precedent event. The time still ticking. The waves still grasping for the imminent introduction of sand. Like the sand turns to glass turns to jagged bottle-green litter on the beach, turns to sand.
Like one event after the precedent event.

OkayI need a world where everything is just fine,Okay5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Where good things happen with no regrets.
I need a place to call my own,
Somewhere to lose myself
Ignore the pains from wheels of fate and forget my sorrows from shattered dreams.
I need someone to tell me what I'm doing is right.
Someone to reassure me.
Someone to tell me everything is alright.
Tell me everything will be okay.
