This is the kind of love that scares people out of bed. You look at me like I have given you something important, And maybe I have, But this is the kind of love that lasts a lifetime. And I never thought I would find you this young, But I did. I’ve been running and … Continue reading Solitary
My great-grandmother used to tell me, That if you caught a falling leaf Before it touched the ground, You could wish on it. She used to say that fall leaves Were God’s way of sending down his wishes. When I was a kid I would spend hours in the yard Trying to catch as many … Continue reading Falling Leaves
Things I Am Afraid Of
You know that feeling after you jump, right before you’re about to land back on your feet? That feeling that you’ve been flying for so long, that earth misses you, that gravity is pulling you back to safety? I’m afraid I’ll lose that someday.

What it Feels Like
Love sounds like rain hitting the umbrella above your head, Sounds like a single cicada calling for something.

Better This Way

How Can I Love You?
How can I tell you That I know exactly how you feel Without telling you about her? How do I connect your heart to mine Without bringing up my heartbreak?

What Is This?
But what is our love If I can't be there when the joy overtakes And if you can't be here when the panic attacks? And if you are stuck in the mud While I am crawling the city floor What is this? What does this mean If I can never be close enough to hold … Continue reading What Is This?
