I bury my head in the pillowcase and inhale the comforting scent of my own bed.
The sun is peeking through my curtains and the space heater woke me up a little early, but I don’t really mind.
This is the first […]
The only difference between you and I
Is that we have different dominant sides
You care more than I ever could
And all I’ll ever do is wish I could
It’s just a fucking scene
In the movie that is my life
So why is it so hard
For me to let it go
To get to the next one
I told him I was looking for the service road to the falls, and asked if there were signs or trail markers I could follow to help me there.
He said, “Son, out here there are no signs. Nothing points you in the […]
You told me to take a deep breath
I told you it wouldn’t help
I never use my brain
Things get tough and I have no solutions
Only ways to let the sadness swallow me whole
But you have cracked open my […]
You and I
Are a series of affairs
We will never stay until the morning
We will never make each other breakfast
Or fall desperately into each other
Just time filled with physical […]
Despite the fact that you claim to care about me
You still hold back all your smallest secrets
And dodge all of my warm gestures
Without a single consideration
How am I supposed to believe you
And how am I […]
The trail is steep
Footing is not easy on loose rocks
And I have no porter
To guide me to the top
To carry my things
To support me
So I will keep on climbing
Further and further
But where the hell is the summit
Standing along the banks of the river, it wasn’t enough for me.
I needed the salty ocean air, the wind in my face, the feeling of irresponsibility and a carefree life.
I wanted to get away so badly, and all it […]
I’ve thought of a million concepts. A million reasons why. Hundreds of ideas. But none of them explain why I can’t stop thinking about you even when you’re 3,000 miles away.
I heard the ding as my phone lit up in the cup holder. I reached around the arm rest to pick it up from the place it had grown so accustomed to. You were offering me a home, but I couldn’t impose.
Every time I drive by your house I feel like an agent on patrol.
They carried him out
On a stretcher
And they flicked on their sirens
And drove away
Hope was useless
I knew he was gone
If the minute hand was a sonar scan
searching for a moment
when I wasn’t thinking of you,
it would turn up with nothing.
Because your eyes are at ten and two,
and I’m staring at you
like a kid stuck in […]
The turbines powered up and my grip on the arm rests tightened. What was I doing? Where was I going? Suddenly I wanted off this plane so badly that I had to clench every muscle in my body not to hop out of my seat […]
One strap on her overalls dangled, unhooked, just the way she liked it. She jumped from bar to bar on the playground, her pigtails bouncing along beside her like two clouds on either side of the sun. She was […]
We’re like children that act recklessly in class and don’t care if they’ll get detention. We danced around the halls of our childhood and brushed our fingertips along the walls of our dreams. I’ll never forget the […]
The modem clicked as I tried to connect to the Internet. I didn’t had patience for its little hitches right now, I needed to talk to you. You’re 500 miles away and I’m sitting here with my existence relying on a […]
My eyes gazed down the railroad tracks, following them off into the distance until they disappeared. There was a strange sense of fear about standing where something that could kill me would soon pass through. It […]
Your singing echoes across the room and chills run down the back of my spine. I try my hardest to hide a shiver. Even if I did, you’d still see the goosebumps and raised hair on my arms. You’re keen on the little things.
