Burden (a poem)

Take that little piece

It’s okay

Take it

Take it far away from me

Keep it

Burn it

Throw it away

I don’t care

Just take it with you

I don’t want it anymore

It’s such a burden

Such a heavy thing to carry around

You know?

Like an albatross around my neck

A ball and chain

That thing I never noticed

Suddenly became everything to me

Such a noticeable thing I can’t go a day without thinking of

There is always a reminder

Here, there

Every-fucking-where

I can’t get away

So take it

Let your pets eat it

Stomp it under your Converse shoes

Damnit, I don’t care

Just don’t let me keep it

Make me one promise once you have it

Whatever you do with it

Don’t take it for granted

It’s such a burden to have

A heart in love

Burden (a poem)

A Century (a poem)

I thought I was mistaken

Never thought I’d see you again

I watched you die

Slowly, your mortal body

Wilted before my undying eyes

I walked away

Didn’t have the courage to change you

Didn’t have a heart to watch your smile

The light in your eyes

Fade away

When you left you took

A little piece of me

Away with you to Heaven

You promised me you’d see me again

Baby, I just wonder when?

Because immortality is no fun

If I can’t spend it with you

And now you’re here

Back again

But you’re not the same

You don’t know me anymore

A familiar face, the same place

But a different heart inside

A century went by

I barely noticed

Missing you

And now I miss you more

You’re here but you’re not the man I knew

Your heart is hardened

And I don’t know what to do

Can I make your mortal heart open up?

Can you make my immortal soul love again?

Polarizing (a poem)

I wrote this in late 2010. Enjoy!

Days like today remind me how much I
Alternately hate & love you
Miss you yet am glad you’re gone
Outta my life
(Not really)
I knew you a year yesterday
Does that mean anything to you?
I know you don’t remember the day
But to me, it was unreal
I met my angel & my seraph
I loved your voice but it hurt to listen
I could listen to you all night
And pine for you during the day
I’m glad to see you happy now
But I loathe the reason for it
Is it normal to be so polarized inside?
Is it all right to want to be closer to you,
Yet I wish you’d never come here
I don’t know the answers
I hate asking these stupid questions
I can’t ask your forgiveness again
But I want you to say how special I am
One more time
Oh, to Hell with it!
I still want you
I still love you

Polarizing (a poem)

Light You Up (a poem)

Woke up this morning missing you more than ever
Been so long since we were together
I long to feel your skin on mine
Hear your laugh resonate from your chest
See your smile face-to-face
Sit down & talk about
Everything & nothing
At the same time
Are you happy now?
Where you are
Does it fit you now?
Do you think of me at all
Unbidden in the m middle of the action?
Or am I nothing but
A memory
A little girl who
Never really meant much to you?
I want to be more
I want to be there
Or I want you here
Anywhere
Where we can be together again
You light up my life
Let me might up yours

Light You Up (a poem)

Live (a sonnet)

I wrote this a year ago and I can’t believe I never posted it here before! I really enjoyed rereading this a year later and remembering everything I was thinking/feeling as I wrote it.

It seems like

Every road I travel

Has always led me back to this

Back to where I started

When I started to live

When I started to live

With you in my life

Painful endings are just

Interludes to the life we share

I never thought we’d wind up back here

But I realize

Everything I thought that

I was doing to

Forget you

Was just leading me

Right back to you

Destiny was telling us

We started to live

Do you believe it?

That fate has us all

Wrapped in its velvet chains

Captured like

Sparrows

We try and try to fly

Away

But we always come back to

The nest

Painful endings are just

Interludes to the life we share

I never thought we’d wind up back here

But I realize

Everything I thought that

I was doing to

Forget you

Was just leading me

Right back to you

Destiny was telling us

We started to live

Bleeding hearts

That never heal

Do we really want them to?

Words that mean nothing

To you

Mean something

To me

Angel, tell me

Why were you sent here?

Just to make me feel like I can

Live

Painful endings are just

Interludes to the life we share

I never thought we’d wind up back here

But I realize

Everything I thought that

I was doing to

Forget you

Was just leading me

Right back to you

Destiny was telling us

We started to live
