“She was like a wildfire.
She just appeared,
and took over
never looking back.
I got caught in her fire,
like an electrical line
swinging from a pole.
We burned together,
everything we touched
we set ablaze,
and when it all settled
we were the ashes together.”
“I promise there is one part of her that is worth it.
You must trouble through a lot of her that is not yet sorted,
you must overcome parts of her that look down but really are a climb up;
you must fight against her even though all she wants is for your to win.
You will endure her coldest winter ever,
you will suffer the heat of her body,
You will not know pain until she has grabbed you by the heart, and then let go…
but I promise there is a part of her that is worth it,
find the part of you that is strong enough to endure, to withstand, to fight, to win.”
“How I long to be the corners of your mouth,
uplifted every time you smile
which so often you do.
I need a ride on the edge of the world, your world,
I want to hang by by your bottom lip
swinging from your laughter.
I want to get caught in your three syllable words,
latching on to the vowels.
Speak life into me, mouth words that set me free
hanging from your bottom lip.”
“Its supposed to happen quick
In a moment
There and not there.
Nobody ever talks the drag,
Those that don’t get instant gratification.
Those that slip away into the doctors, monitors and medications,
And the family that waits silently, screaming on the inside
hoping and praying and wishing for a miracle on the outside.
Nobody ever talks about the drag
Those that don’t get instant gratification,
Waiting for Friday, like a promised vacation.”
