Negotiations.

NEGOTIATIONS.

Is life just a series of negotiations?

Swapping pain for a different type,

Sacrificing things that shouldn’t be,

 

For the sake of everyone else?

‘You read and write and sing and experience, thinking that one day these things will build the character you admire to live as.

You love and lose and bleed best you can, to the extreme, hoping that one day the world will read you like the poem you want to be.’

– Charlotte Eriksson

Afterthought.

AFTERTHOUGHT.

I keep waiting for your call.

I was hoping you wouldn’t forget me today.

Why is it that you make me feel so loved, and so alone, all at once?

But now it’s nearing midnight… have you forgotten me? I wonder when you’ll remember me.  Even as an afterthought.

That would be enough.

 

But perhaps it is simply me, who is not enough.

Closer Than We Think.

A poem.

 

glares, scares, stares

holding wrists too tight

pushing, hating, shoving

too big to fight.

 

chairs crashing and screens cracking

dinner plates slammed to the sink

doors locked shut and knelt behind –

 

violence is closer than we think.

What Now.

WHAT NOW.

Every time I see you, I fall in love with you all over again.

I try and push you into my pockets, where I shove my hands – scared they will betray me and hold yours – snatch them right up off the table where they sit.

But these pockets are never deep enough and haven’t the room to keep the stuff I shove in them and I keep trying to breathe but…

what now?

I Wonder.

A poem.

 

blink and you’ll miss it

life is gone quicker than it comes

i wonder what is in store for us

 

when we open our eyes again.

Light.

LIGHT.

Some people turn our hearts to fire, and others turn them to ice.

But it doesn’t matter how long it’s been since I saw you last, your presence is like light. As soon as I see you, my problems melt away, burned by a fire that could never die.

There aren’t enough good words in the English language to describe how much I care about you.

But every day you walk this Earth, means I continue to walk it too.
