to stay

Saturday, March 25, 2017


i fell in love
with the way he smiled
as he took my order
with the way his hand
brushed mine 
as he handed me my drink
with the way his eyes lit up
when i sat down
as if to say he wanted me
to stay
so i did

i fell in love
with the way she twirled her hair
as she ordered a latte
with the way her mouth quirked
when our hands touched
as she took her drink
with the way she sat
eyes dancing
as if to say she wanted me
to stay
so i did




so i wait

stories
inside my soul
but
one is darker
than the other
i hold onto them
afraid to
let them go
what if
they don't understand
what if
they can't see the light
inside of me
so i wait
too petrified to say
anything
so i wait
and prepare
for on to consume the other
so i wait
to see if the light
stays
or if the darkness
overtakes me




voices

Sunday, March 5, 2017


voices
they're everywhere
telling you
what to do
how to act
where to go
no one asks
no one cares?
it's not up to you
it's up to them
but no
stop
you see
that's wrong
believe it or not
he is wiser
than them
and
wiser than you
so don't listen to
the voices
and quiet your heart
lean into him
and listen
because he's got you
he always has
he always will

your timing vs my timing

you say to
wait
on you
to be
patient
but you see
why can't it
be now
that works better
no?
i know you know best
but
i know pretty well
so why not
listen to what
i want
it's just as good
no?
but
they're so cute
and well
sure i'm young
but
please
can't you see
it's what i want
it's what i need
no?
i know you see
the greater picture
but i see only
now
so please
just give me a taste
sure i don't know
best
but i know
no?
ok yes
go ahead
my life is in
you hands
not mine
i know this
i do
sometime i'm lonely
but you
you are enough
so i'll wait
until you say
go
i'll trust
in your timing
not mine
