Even when it is my own relationship,

I cannot say what I think

or feel.

This isn’t a relationship.

This is you romanticizing me 

and thinking that I’m your girlfriend. 

I don’t belong to you. 

I belong to myself. 

Do you even know?

October 5th

All day-
up
up
up.
I should have known
it would end
with me and a sharp
along with an empty soul.

September 24

Isn’t it funny
how we think we need
someone else
to fix us?
Having someone who loves you
will not fix you,
but they may just help you
fix yourself-
or make you realize
you were never broken in the first place-
but instead a human being.

Why is it that I can say I love cereals

animals

books

nature

and even the weather,

but I cannot say that I love you?

If I told you I loved the universe,

would you understand that I love you too?

I believe you would-

that’s what scares me.

So many smiles and opening doors-

for me?

How odd. 

Unreciprocated feelings

are everywhere. 

Everywhere except you. 

I only want you.

Please want me too. 

You Make Me Feel Alive

I just want to talk to you. 

Wrap my arms around you

and call you mine. 

You be mine,

and I’ll be yours. 

I’ve never been anyone’s,

but I’d like to be yours. 

Please let me be yours. 

I’m falling so hard for you.

I never really realized what home was

until I looked into your eyes

and saw into you for the first time. 

Because even just your presence

makes me feel at ease. 

We Work Well Together

I used to measure my time

in test days,

dance classes, 

and how many days were left until the weekend.

I’ve found that lately

none of these methods work.

None.

Instead I measure the days and weeks,

by whenever I have a conversation

with you.

You’re my favorite part of the day. 

you apologize.
the words flood out
faster than the waterfall
Catherine and Henry created.
but if only you knew
I was not looking at you out of
annoyance.
I am simply transfixed by you
and how your words come out.

Out of all the bad in this world,
why do so many people
choose to reject and punish others
for loving someone?
