What I Wanted To Say Was

There was a time when you said sorry,

And I said that I’d forgive you.

Where we pushed each other’s boundaries,

And waited to see what would come of it.

Time has taken its turn on us,

And we let the pieces fall where they may.

You made a lot of promises,

And they were all just as empty,

As your words,

And the terms of endearment,

My love and baby.

Because it turns out,

That you weren’t sorry,

And you never did say so.

Because it turns out,

That I never did forgive you,

And time has left it all a little too late.

So save your breath,

And I’ll save the wasted emotion.

I used to wish I could be that girl,

That filled your moments and your arms.

But it turns out,

That I don’t admire your true colors,

Or the stupid grin your always wear.

Because the man I wanted,

The man I loved,

Was just a shell of you.

And turns out,

The real you is disappointing at best.

So I’m realizing now,

That what you are,

And what you ought to be,

Are two very different things.

This is me saying,

Things are different now,

And I’m through with it all.

This Galaxy

You’re the kind of person that the silence is shared well with on long car rides.

Where there’s so much more that hangs in those breaths after a laughing fit.

You’re the electricity that appears between the thunder and lightning.

I know that this silence so quietly shared, boasts so much more than what we see.

You’re the early morning dew on the grass, gone right as the sun touches you so.

I’m chasing you through the light, into the dark, and up into the stars.

This is how our worlds will orbit. Around each other. One in the same.

Make Room

Make room for me

Make room for my love

Just a moment

To be in between

The push

And shove.

This is all but

The actions of passion

And maybe it’ll hurt some

But there’s always a sting

When you get it just right.

Don’t worry about the hurt

My darling

Desire awaits you on the

Other side.

You won’t hunger for love

When I’m always here

To satiate that need

For you

That will always be.

Keep steady

Breathe me in

Take every last drop

I’m giving this my all.
