I Won’t Try to Stop Loving You

I won’t even try to stop loving you. I won’t even try to tuck those memories aside. I know I’ll see you again and I know that your smile will bring back every good feeling you gave me. So, I won’t pretend that you don’t matter. I won’t act like I don’t care. I will…

Crush

I have this knack for falling in love with things and people I can’t have. Maybe I’m so obsessed with fantasy that I get tired of reality. Maybe I’ve given up at such an early age. But I swear, you made me feel more alive than I have been in… years. 5 days – not…

Be Careful Where You Step

Be careful where you you step for the world’s plates shift with every man’s breath. You will want to face one way, but the wind will blow you another. You cannot fight such a strong force. The wind is stronger than the cross that burdens your back. The water is stronger than the rock that…

Dream

He’s everywhere. After months of not thinking of him, he appears in my dream. I envision him admitting his faults and his undeniable love for me. I believe it all. Then I wake up. He’s everywhere. After a long day of writing and music-listening and movies and everything, a random playlist on Spotify put on shuffle presents…
