eyes like lighthouses
you guide my drifting sail
a single source, a beacon
illuminating the waves

I approach land
I extend out an arm
nervous first,
then calm

veins

I’m weaving
seamlessly,
sometimes even blissfully,
through a city deeming like hell not too long ago

this city
of which we are the veins
is suddenly singing,
smiling,
to the rhythm of our feet

paint brush

I’m peeling away at your mystery
I want to give myself to you
your head on my lap, caramel hair draped over my legs
however you want me
as we watch the sun’s oranges and yellows drip over tree branches
I need to know you see me
and we can’t help but wonder if the tips could be the paint brush to our story
because I’m always looking for your eyes
and if the ocean could wrap its tides around us
won’t you come be in the sky with me
while it brags to the moon that we’ve made it

a thousand layers

It hit me in this sudden, dizzying motion – while attempting to stay tightly wrapped in a thousand layers of indestructible distance – that I have been sitting in this room with you for longer than I remember. It’s striking how the eyes you followed for years, when in front of you after a long break, can be so utterly blinding.

“I’m learning how to be alone” I said, I think, maybe not in that order of words, maybe not as polished and as to the point, but something along those lines.

barely here.

shooka3shooka9 shooka8 shooka7 shooka4

2000 miles away, there’s your faint gaze. I rub my eyes, I swear you were only an arm’s length away a minute ago. That distant kind of love. That woozy kind of love. Empty and safe – a haven without a roof.

I make my way around the room. I look back. I beg to meet your eyes. I always did hope you’d notice, even the things you didn’t want to see. But your eyes, always milky and calm, oblivious to it all.

Your cold breath mutters a string of broken words that continue to shatter, over and over again, until a few disconnected pieces make it to my ear. Your bloodless skin, pale and cold. I never felt so small. Neither threatening nor threatened, like a white wall, you’re barely here.

You say I love you, I smile, and the sky seems to close on us both.

at the end of it all
it’s me –
sitting cross legged, hunched over on a cold bed
dizzy
from walking in circles around myself
looking for a vacancy
