breath

Unwanted

Clovers grow in my heart where you used to heal me
Now fairy rings in the ground
Empty, hollow enclosures
the rejected “I love yous” pile up in the backseat of our car
like heavy snow
I need you so close
It’s a bargain of breath I need
Your skin against mine
To make this day in & day out worthwhile

Love Haze

We made each other come alive
And I never minded the pain of what that entailed
Our highest highs were worth the lowest lows
Or at least, I remember it that way.

I have captured moments I never wanted to let go
Like the fire in your eyes from the moment you woke, pristine & jade
Or
Kissing under the rain, mud-ridden & dirty
Heavy metal music stomping through the air, passion dancing at our feet

I wish I could feel the way we felt together again
Pure electricity flowing through our harrowed hands
The air thick around us at every breath.
