That Song

I love it when you sing that song.
Looking at me for the lyrics
That you know I’m gunna get wrong.

The words that rip through my veins.
In your voice and mine.

The beat that vibrates our lives
Our beds, our bones.

All the ways you sing to me
To let me know we’re entwined.

The Life of Us

Letters and drawings and poems.
The story of us builds up, surrounding.

There is no fairy-tale. No princes, no queens.
Instead there are fights, leaving us feeling unseen.

But in the end there will be you and us
Only our hearts pounding.

True Lies

“Nice hair!”
“You’re really funny!”
“I love those shoes!”

All seem insincere to someone who was bought up in a life of sarcasm.

But like a lie whispered in the ear of a lover, the more you tell it the harder it becomes to tell the difference.

Watch me fly

Clipped wings.
Arms Wide.
I will fly.

In sickness and in health.
In good moods and bad.
When I’m up and when I’m down.
I will fly.

You tell me I can’t do better.
That little voice in my head.
It says you cant soar,
That you will fall.

But through the foul and the great,
I will fly.

I’ll show you,
I’ll fly high.

Tell me a bit about yourself

Tight stomach, constructed breath.

Strengths, weaknesses, any questions. Who are you?

I never say no.
I’m a people pleaser.
I work too hard.
I ruin every pair of jeans I own.
I say the wrong thing.
And sometimes I say nothing at all when it’s needed.
I’m needy but confident.
Smart but struggle for words.
And I tear everything apart that I have ever loved.

Does that sound like something that will work for you?

And They Say

They say to take care of your heart, to hide it away especially if you have felt the sting of it before.

They say that you should remove your soul, to not show people your vulnerability, to not waste time with hobbies and to hustle for the material things that you want in life.

But they forget

They forget how good it feels when you open up your heart. When you steal a kiss, a hug, a dream.

They forget to get lost in your art can let you breathe, let you feel, let you love.

So don’t listen to those that harden themselves. They are scared and they can’t remember what it’s like to have a smile on their face. A smile that shows the world that you have love, and you have soul. Something that you should never lose.

So be careful with your heart yes. But never feel afraid to show the world what you love.
