i want our names in neon lights on top of the moon



i’m too attracted to you to trust myself

intoxicated by the spirit in your eyes

we wake –

the morning stillness trembles

tugging heartstrings – eyes following

this moment


centering me

balancing me

i used to be able to do this without you

its just that my lashes

they miss fluttering through yours


i think we choose our happiness before they happen

i think you think that too

you have me convinced opposites distract

creating senseless attraction

connecting dots from me to you

through the thin line of losing your mind and just simply being out of it


i could drink a case of you, and still be on my feet

you laugh because you think it’s a joke

i laugh because you think I’m joking


my days are genuinely greater

when they begin with


you give me that, against the rules touch

and once you’ve tasted what’s across the line

it’s hard to go back

you don’t want to go back


i had all the answers

then you smiled and changed all the questions

you don’t pretend to understand me and that is liberating.

making sense of run-on sentences

never apologizing for what makes our heart race


i’ve trained myself to let go of everything I’m afraid to lose

when we meet again, remind me that I am yours.

    I NEEDED to leave a comment after reading this poem. I can’t describe to you how amazing I think this is. I’m a writer as well, I love writing poetry and I just think this is awesome! The line: “i could drink a case of you, and still be on my feet”… perfect. So simple, so perfect.
    I just had to let you know. You’re awesome.
