i think you are lovely. but i am not in love with you, and by the fifth time you catch my eye and look away just as quickly, i realize that i cannot will myself into being so. if love were as simple as a field of flowers, i swear i would pick you a bouquet of daises, and make sure that every petal you picked off ended with ‘she loves me’. if love were as reliable as the sun, i would never stand so far away from you that our shadows did not touch. if love were as predictable as the weather, i swear i would spend every storm kissing you in the rain. if love were as fair as Lady Justice i would tie a scarf around my eyes and sp
an open letter to my twelve year old self
one day you will cut all your hair off, and hang up a map of the world in your room and you will look at it on days you think your life is going nowhere. i hate to tell you this, but this isn’t your worst year. it also isn’t your best. one day you will cut all your hair off and realize that some poems need to be read out loud, to an audience, so you’ll take a hammer and some nails and build yourself one out of a girl whose veins look fragile but whose bones are strong, a boy who isn’t as tall as he thinks he is, but whose lifelines are the deepest you’ve ever seen, and a girl whose eyes remind you of the east

I Smile When...
I smile when we're together I smile knowing our love's forever. I smile when you say my name I smile cause my life is no longer the same. I smile cause it's you that I'm dreaming of I smile cause your love is one I cannot Get enough. I smile big & wide I smile cause you're the light in My sky. I smile when we kiss I smile cause there's no other who Can give a love like this. I smile when we're texting late at night I smile cause I want to hold you so tight. I smile because when my heart goes a flutter I smile cause we're meant for each other. I smile cause we will always be together This much I know is always true; God truly did

The Spell of Lust
The moon is full & Halloween Has arrived; The perfect night, To put all inhibitions aside. I am ready to let my prohibitions go & make this about us; You will fall into dark devotion, Once I cast my spell of lust. Your resistance will fail you As you become hot & bothered; You will begin to realize that you Want no other. As the temperature rises You'll begin to get wet; to say the least; Although you try to fight it, You'll feel the urge to find sweet release. You'll cry out my name as You surrender to sensual desire; No need to feel guilty dear, Just give in & fan the flames higher. Do you feel turned on? Are you wanting more & more ev
what does it feel like to be sober at a party?
sometimes you want to spit out your teeth because you’ve been grinding them so hard under a diaphanous coating of crimson lipstick; but you know the floors already freckled with confetti- aluminum and glass and paper- and the eburnean pearls tucked away in your mouth are not able to be recycled and sometimes it’s rivulets on the back of your neck, droplets dripping like honey, because the rooms heating up from people swarming like bees; as your cheeks burgeon like crimson roses your oversized sweater becomes your only source of safety- maybe from the constant touch of others, as they bump around like lost passengers at a train
you're never hopeless
you tell me you feel hopeless as you talk with tired eyes- the sky drips with black pen ink poured on crystal cosmic lights your eyes become black vacuums- your words turn to somber sighs, and I ask you: on the darkest of nights, have you ever seen a starless sky?
Darling, Don't You Dare
To the girl who skips dinner, Because her reflection hurts more than Starving. To the boy who wears sweatshirts On hot summer days, Because he doesn’t want his mother to cry over his Scars. To the boy who weeps uncontrollably Until he falls asleep, Because it’s the only way to escape into his Dreams. To the girl who spends her days in her bedroom, Because the dark is more peaceful than her Mind. To the child who gets angry, Because no one understands. To the teens who self-harm, To the ones in recovery, To the ones that just can’t do it anymore… Stay Strong. For the girl who skips meals And the boy who wears sw
