You may be a thousand miles away but you make me smile like you’re right here.

Some nights, your hands will tremble
as if you are holding a gun to your head
and the only cures that you will find
and the hope of a new morning.
Some nights, though your day was light and
airy, your head will cloud with
an incoming storm
and there is no escaping it
you must dive in with your warmest clothing
and hope that it does not soak you to your bones.
Some nights, even the happiest chords will leave
you gasping with tear stained cheeks
do not worry child,
it is merely a sign that you are
Never let the world seize your ability
to feel and see and know
Your shirt still smells like you after months buried in a suitcase full of my clothing and it’s on days like this that I’m convinced the universe is engaged in an elaborate attempt to break me.
Some days I feel so fragile that a single look could accomplish it’s goal.
kayla-bird asked: I really love your poetry.
oh gosh thank you so so so so so much. I’m crying a little bit, it means so much to me when people compliment my poems.
Dear followers, Stay tuned for a little while longer and hopefully they’ll be some new content. I start college soon and I’m taking a poetry class so there’s bound to be something that comes out of that. I’ve been lacking inspiration and time. Thanks for everyone who’s stuck with me so far :)
If I could take away
all the parts of you that make you
and toss them far across the continent
If I could cut out all the things
that make life so heavy
and scatter them in the sea
You deserve nothing more but the
yet you are surrounded by darkness
I want to help you touch the sun
like Icarus and Daedalus
conquering the sky together
without taking such a plunge.
emotions change with the season
and i fear that the heat of this summer
has burned too much happiness away
others feel desolate in the winter
but it’s in these scorching months
where steam rises off the asphalt like fire
that i feel most alone.
