Your presence dances
Around the recesses of my mind
You tip toe around its fringes
But not to make yourself known
And it makes me wonder
If I am the only one who does it
Do you think of me, and if so, in what way? How do you remember me as I do you?
I felt used and manipulated
Using love and impugned guilt
To keep me in your gaze
Was any of it real?
Why wasn’t I worth you being honest with and a partner to?
I carry some of it with me still
And I want to let go of the pathos of it all
But I haven’t yet
When does a feeling beyond yourself
Dissolve into its past
You wrote a hundred reasons
As to why you loved me
Why couldn’t you find one more
And be the person I needed you to be?

I didn’t realize until tonight
It’s been a year
I thought my emotions were going
Haywire on me in some way
Until I realized it’s probably
My subconscious reverberating
She has been so patient and kind
With me and loves me in ways
I don’t even love myself
She’s always let me needed
To feel what I needed to feel
Even if it was at her expense
She’s been my savior
In so many ways
And she sees me in ways I can’t or don’t want to admit at times
She verbalized the knowledge
Of me still having feelings for you
With the delineation not of you
But of who I wanted you to be
She said it wasn’t her place
To take that away from me
And let me feel what I needed to feel
I said why would you st...

I want to feel you pressed against me..our bodies melding together
I want you to look into my eyes
And see me for my entirety
I want you to gently laugh with a playful smile spreading across
As you show so much love
Through those beautiful green eyes
I want you to kiss every inch of
My face..washing away all it’s strain
I want you touch my cheek and run your thumb across..gently grazing it with anticipation of what’s behind it
I want you to touch your lips to mine
I want our souls to intertwine
And get lost in our comparable depths

You know what lay in my heart
Even hearts of hearts
All knowing and seeing
Per what I am told
My mind races with
So many thoughts
Wanting to know and understand
Completely...the last year of
My life and how it is shaping me to be who I am meant to be
And what the end result will be

St. Christopher hangs around my neck
Feeling the sterling silver between my fingers as I run it back and forth
Solace in its mental vying protection
Against the backdrop of secular guilt
Within myself..being my own critic
Zodiac symbol and marine life
Lay in its juxtaposition
Between the Word and Stars
Intertwined between these worlds
With self reflection, doubt, and a positive intention of belief..but standing between its finite and infinite principles
Amongst these two worlds lay the gold shell of a piece of my heart
The smallest piece, but with the biggest impact on my psyche..that there is purpose in this life and the things that happen...these pieces touching different parts...but ...

I keep looking back
And extending my hand in my imagination to grasp something
That wasn’t real to begin with
The dichotomy of knowing
It’s not what you want or need
But some part of you still
Stirs in the embers
Of the fire it left you in

My hurt is a root
That is deeply embedded
I starved you with inattention
Hoping you would dwindle and die, but a part of you still remains
You are rooted in every other
Feeling..anger, sadness, and pain that is buried deep
The quickest way is through it is said
Working through the hurt means working through my love
And letting go of one for me is letting go of it all
Dancing with you in the darkness of my mind
I can’t see it, so it’s not there
But the all consuming fire of it all..still lay in me
Consume me and be my fettered hope of a Phoenix
Or kiss my lips and drown me

I want to love again
And let trust come easily
Love me in such a way
Honesty, trust, and respect
Are instinctive in nature
I want to heal my heart
And stitch it back together
To give to her some whole
Part of me instead of pieces

Disconnecting myself
Largely from the external world
To focus on me and recenter
I want to be left alone
To my own devices
For an inordinate period of time
There is beauty in the silence

I can’t help but wonder
How deep our connection
Could truly be
Curiosity killed the cat they say
But what am I saying
Tiptoeing around an energy
With little being said
And more being felt
Across the expanse
Of a keyboard

It’s hard accepting that it is okay to feel lonely sometimes.
It’s hard accepting that it is okay to be sad sometimes.
It’s hard to accept my weaknesses sometimes.

The crickets begin to sing their song
As the sun starts to dip below the horizon
Spreading summer’s colors across her skies
The humidity sticks to my skin
In beads of sweat that hang
To my skin as they reach the edge
And hit the ground below
The sun dress you’re wearing
Billows lightly around you
Your smile presses into me
Laying heavy on my chest
Unable to breathe or comprehend
The way you look at me
You touch your lips to mine
And time freezes in my mind
As I shutter my eyes
To freeze frame time

You realize the impermanence
When you no longer feel its loss
Chemical reactions in the brain
And synapses firing is what
We call love at the end of the day
But what about that churning
Deep in our core as our hearts
Beat for more than just ourselves
That permanence I’ve never felt

A part of me just wants
To sequester myself from everyone
And everything around me
To indelibly not be overlooked
And taken for granted by people
With self serving agendas

I need to learn when
Someone doesn’t truly
Value me or my presence
And quit trying to prove
My worth in some way
When they don’t see it
To begin with

Manifestations in my mind
Hoping and praying
They come to fruition
A feeling in my heart
That my life is unfolding
As it should right now
And I just need
To trust the process

I walk silently in the dark
Watching each shadow
Pull away from me
As I walk below a light
I reach out my hand in instinct
Holding onto the darkness
As it’s become my friend

The perfect date would to be in a rural enough area to see everything the sky has to offer at night. It being just the right temperature to give you an excuse to lay on my chest and cuddle up to me. We would speak of our hopes, dreams, and fears. We would look to the sky and make up our own constellations and stories behind them. We would get lost in the sky and each other for the night.

A slight exhale brings
Warm air before me
Showing white against
The cold of the night
Every part of my body
Feels it to my core
A blanket of untouched
Earth lay before me
To create what I wish

A wall was there
I wanted to go past it
But knew I couldn’t
I looked at you
And knew you were shielded
From yourself and me as well
I pushed for more from you
Which gave the opposite
That smile and infectious laugh
How I wished I could look
Behind those beautiful green eyes
You left me curious and intrigued
After all of this passing time

Spiritual awakenings
That have rumbled too long
Are easing me down a path
I have just begun
Unknown time or space
But my heart is steadfast
With beginnings of peace
As I envelop in his embrace

I’ve felt that void
Slowly start to close
Looking more inward
And less on external
Optimistic and hopeful
At what it will bring
My heart’s desires
Are in the forefront
Of my heart and mind
I cannot allow them
To waiver to other whims
As I focus on what matters
Which is me, myself, and I

Choose to be above your past transgressions
For they will only hold you down
It is a new day
With a new perspective
To choose to be a Phoenix
And rise above the ash

Do you still love me?
No response to such a question
I scream it into the void
Of my conscious mind
It’s not you I need to be asking
Except the reflection of myself
Looking back into empty space

I imagine touching the arch of your spine
Feeling it wet beneath my tips
From the water hitting you
I let my curiosities unravel
Grazing my finger tips upward
God’s sacrifice on your shoulder
What does it mean for you
Flagellation and penance
For your incurred sins
Hoping it’s enough to stay above all of it
As you stand silently
With your back to me

Is happiness a construct of a mindset? Are you happy? Yes or no. That’s black and white. What makes you happy? That’s the real question, and I realized that I don’t have that answer for myself, and it scares me.
