Speak Now

The one I love wants to take care of me. He wants to be there when I crumble and have nowhere to turn. He wants to help me breathe through the madness. My tears kill him as much as they rip me apart. There were days when I never imagined finding this. I still remember … More Speak Now

Serendipity

Something strange happened the other night as I looked up at the stars. I found myself in a state of contentment. I did not wish for anything, Except to keep what I already have.   Something strange happened the other day while on an adventure with the one I love. He spoke words from the … More Serendipity

Without Me

Wait Don’t fade Not before I find the courage To say all I’ve wanted to say Your face How it follows me everywhere And the signs haven’t faded They’re as plain as day I’d like to know What I ever did In my life to deserve this And why it took me so long to … More Without Me

Eventually, you’ll be void and … More Moving Through Pain

Longing

Sometimes I watch the planes fly in at night, wishing you were on one of them, making your way back home to me. You’d call and say, “Baby, I’m home.” I wouldn’t have to wonder what that feeling felt like anymore. But a part of me does wonder, if there’s any part of the longing … More Longing

Looking Forward

In the midst of the pain I’m still looking forward I want the long car rides, music playing and stories shared. Your hand on the wheel, the other on my knee. I want to know the relief of knowing you’re mine. You’ve never been anyone else’s and neither have I.  

At a Terminal

Sometimes I wonder how it would be if you knew. If you are waiting for me as long as I am waiting for you. How would it be if you too dreamed of me? I wonder how it would be to have you waiting for me, at a terminal, in the midst of chaos and … More At a Terminal
