Contagious Insanity

I will continue asking you to listen, but never to understand.

Good News On the Way

My love, oh my love, it can’t rain forever. The sun must shine again soon.

My love, oh my love, where did your smile go? There’s none other like it.

My love, oh my love, there is so much left to live for. You just have to keep waking up.

In the Middle

"I understand that you would like someone else and I am not the who you always believed I could be.  I get that I'm not smart or anything special and I'm sorry... I am so sorry," I sobbed into your perfectly ironed shirt as the others continued their shouts and the war marched on. We sat in no mans land, right in the middle of the crossfire, innocent beyond belief watching our town burn down, paralyzed by the fear of what our own imaginations created before us.

"That's where your wrong, you are and you have been for a long time. Because to me you are smart, pretty, and very much special, and without you i would be nothing but a empty shell of myself, you make me feel like i can take on the world and nothing will stop me. You have the power to enable me to stop a charging Rhino with one hand, to have 1,000 arrows shot at me and i wont feel a thing, but you also have the power to bring me to my knees just by the wink of your eye or the flick of your wrist." You answered as the bullets slowed until finally they just stopped coming our way all together.

Piggy Bank for Minutes

Thank you for saving a little time each day for me. I understand that it isn't always easy.

The Remains of a Galaxy

I was taught to believe that we are all made of dust and ash, but that was false information. You are made of stardust.  Growing up they told me that we're all here for different reasons but to do the same thing. Only we aren't because some are here to live and others are here to  love.  (yes, it does make a difference.) And they always said that all of us were born the same way. We weren't. I was an accident of pleasure.  You were intended as the last hope of a generation.

How It's Going to be

Three years later, a new girl sits cross-legged on your bed. She tastes like dew painted leaves instead of sunlight. She opens up that book you read in high school, it's pages filled with lessons you were too young to learn just then and streaks of yellow that meant the difference between life and death back then - even though they mean nothing now. You watch her thumb through the pages slowly as a picture of us flutters from the chapter we swore would one day be just like ours. We've been forgiven for not keeping our word the way good boys and girls almost always should. But never mind that, her face gets a little darker and she asks about the photo:
" I dated her when I was younger, I was older than her, that was a while back, it's nothing anymore," You explain with fragmented comments of the already fragment-like thoughts. Your heart nudges your soul and whispers, "When I hold you, sometimes, I pretend that you're her and that your chocolate eyes are hers filled with endless fields of bluebells. Her eighteen karat smile was everything I needed to light up my shadow plagued world of twenty years. I will never forget her, it was too perfect then."
Don't worry though, I'm the same way when I'm in his arms at the movies or in his lap after work when we just don't have the energy to stand nor to sleep. I don't think he's realized it yet and I'm sure she wouldn't mind.

Stop Impersonating the Sun

I need you to promise to tell me the truth. Every time. Even when everything's not alright. Especially. When everything's not alright.

Crystal Ball Visions

When the storms start heading your way do not be afraid. All anyone could ever ask of you is to revel in the chaos. It merely makes you even more gorgeous of a soul than you already are.

Be well.

Keep it up, Sunshine

You have no idea how much you have done for the people around you simply because you looked their way and smiled.

A Single Drop

Thank you for finding pure, unparalleled perfection in so many of my flaws.

Just Like Superman

Thank you for being my artificial sun until I could get back on my feet again. I hope to return the favor any time you need.

P.s. I'm really on my way this time.

P.s.s. I love you.

Loneliest Days

You can't leave me though, you may be the earthquake off the coast, but I'm the volcano sitting on the fault lines.

Mnemonic Devices

I love your creativity and your passion for everything you do, but Darling, not everyone understands that about you.

Not Enough Bandages Left

Well, of course rolling up the windows was no good. Ghosts are memories, that's why they hurt so much. They are feelings we've forgotten how to feel and people we don't understand anymore. That's why they don't ever need your permission. The worst part about it all though is that ghosts are all the best parts of us, they are laced within our heart and soul. And that's why no one ever seems to realize that ghosts will haunt you even after you're gone

Painted Losses

Perspective is only so much on it's own. Your imagination is really what matters in this world.

Human Safety Nets

If you just try to stand, to bear courage, to shine, then I will not allow anything else to pull you under. This I promise on my life... I haven't known you long, yet somehow I feel we have been around each other a lot longer than we realize and even longer than even the world has existed.

With the Tide

I will not continue to follow in footsteps I do not agree with any longer. Please do not be upset by this. Even if you are, I am no longer effected by it.

Perfectly Wilted Roses

I will love you even at your very worst. Because you have done nothing less than this for me. 

Rising From Ash

Sometimes terrible things happen and sometimes wonderful things are able to make up for them. But for the times so ugly and so horrible to be made up for you need to keep smiling. Keep moving. And trust that someone somewhere will someday do something a million times better for even more people than this bad thing was able to reach. That is my promise to you.

Take A Breath

I know it sounds cliche'. But it's time you stop and smell the roses. There are better things in life than you seem to realize.

Little Daggers to the Heart

I know you only ever wanted the best for me, but I really wish you hadn't have clipped my wings with your silent stares and strategically placed absences.

Up in the Air

Sometimes I will ask you to try something new. This will not be meant to make you uncomfortable, I simply mean to show you that there's seventeen billion flavors to the world and you've only tried a few dozen.

Keep Shining

It doesn't matter who's watching, sometimes you've just got to be the life of the party and know that even though some will hate you for it, the people who truly matter will love you more than words or pictures will ever be able to accurately describe.

Why We Have Photo Albums

Someday everyone was is going to look back at how happy all of us are now and they will think of all the wonderful moments we've shared. We will thank you for adding so much life to each day we were together. They will talk about all the things they all love about you and I will remind them of how much you loved us and then no matter how dark the world seems that day, the sun will shine through the clouds more brightly than anyone has ever seen before.

Properties of Waves

When we met we became more of ourselves and less of the surrounding strangers. So I got to thinking and I have to know if we saved each other from the world or if we used each other to save ourselves. That's when I started wondering how you feel towards me and how I really feel towards me and began describing how I feel towards you (I am in awe of you and I am sincerely in love with you) which led me to ask if we ever think of ourselves or if we are really only ever thinking of nothing else. When we met we both began to feel so much better, that's the only thing that matters, right?

Radiant Darkness

Beloved Anarchy, you are the greatest teacher of all, but please remember enlightenment and pain do not always have to be one and the same.

What I Should Have Said

You sat there telling me your dreams and how you could never have them because you are different from so many people in this world. I know you don't think I was listening or maybe you knew I was and just didn't think that I really cared, but I really hope there's a way to make them come true that you just don't realize. Because you deserve it. You more than almost anyone else I have ever known.
