Falling Stars

I can only do so much to fix your wings, but I swear I’ll do everything I can and more. Because you belong in the sky where starry-eyed boys and girls can always find you. Where heaven is within reach and angels can protect you. Where the goddamned sorrows and loneliness that did this to you once can never do it again. I can only do so much to fix your wings, but I swear I’ll do everything I can and more. Even if it kills me

Street Lamps at 3 A.M.

I’ve never needed anyone until I met you.

From Experience

Your parents may not like me very much for saying this but stranger danger is nothing more than a state of mind.

Talking to strangers is nothing more than how you make friends.

My Dearest Photographer

I thought the job of an artist was to create something simple that still held something of meaning. I thought artists were supposed to turn thoughts into true feelings so people could relocate their hearts. I also thought that artists were the eccentrics that find ways to make everything in this crazy world work out in the end.

And here you are, proving me wrong yet again.

Stranger Tides

I know I looked at you with horrible alien eyes and that that was enough to hurt you more than you hurt me by saying those words. Yes, I was fighting tears and I swear I thought you weren't able to see them pushing makeup from my eyes but i guess everyone gets things wrong sometimes. Honestly, I could have sworn that you could hear my heart breaking from the moon and maybe even Mars or Jupiter, but i suppose that it's such a common sound no one would ever notice.

I know I looked at you with alien eyes so realistic you were able to feel a piece of yourself dying because you'd finally proved me wrong.

I'm so sorry I ever looked your way in the first place.

Homecoming 1600 miles away

I hope you are having the time of your life.
I wish you were here.

Try to Understand

I think I should warn you of two things.
First no one is ever who you think they are.
And secondly, I think it's time for me to get out of your hair

The Longest Night in History

I’ve never seen a more memorable, more beautiful, more mesmerizing sight than watching shadows and light fight over your features again and again. The battle would get so close then the light would win. There was a spark in your eyes even in the darkest of times, a spark that reached out and just held my heart so sweetly with such sour tendencies as though everything would be okay. As though we were exactly where we were meant to be. So I stood before you happier than I can ever remember being and I melted for you, I jumped with you and together we learned what it means to love ourselves and each other. To love the lives we live. And for that I thank you immensely.

Suddenly Alien

You create such beautiful scenes in your mind, why don't you try bringing them to life sometime?

A Song of Memories

I know you are not able to hear me. That you are no longer here. That you have already been forgotten. But please, let me say the words I have been trying to say for so long. Be the things I need you to be - codes made of awkward glyphs tasked with carrying meanings from one soul to another. Let me keep my faith in you despite your awful past. And tell everyone who lived once and died before I found this pen that they will be remembered forevermore. Not for who they were or what they did or did not do, but for creating the world with each breath they took. For leaving something buried in nothingness behind. Not for their name, but for ours. Please words, tell them they are not alone. Say that they - each and every one - was great. and comfort them - comfort the living, as unimportant as we are- by pointing out that the greatest tragedy of all time is simply that Time could not last ling enough for them to meet all of us before taking them away.

Falling Stars

I can only do so much to fix your wings but I swear I'll do everything I can and more. Because you belong in the sky where starry-eyed boys and girls can always find you. Where heaven is within reach and the angels can protect you forever and always. Where the goddamned loneliness and emptiness of sorrow can that did this to you once can never do it again. I can only do so much to fix your wings,  but I swear I'll do everything I can and more.

Even if it kills me.

Sparks Shine Forever

Just know I will hold on to you even when there's absolutely nothing left.

One Red Rose

I just need you to know if I cry here, in front of you, it's only because you love me in ways i never thought anyone could. It's only because you make me so much more happy than I ever thought possible. It's only because I have never seen anyone so completely beautiful.

Sixth Grade Parties

You remember all the fun we had when we were younger, you remember more of it than I do. But I still remember the hours we spent looking at each other saying that the other got to decide what we did this time because we decided together last time. I remember more of the beautiful silence than the words we shared. I remember more of the vague details than the important moments that made our story what it was. Thank you so much for asking me how I was doing, even after so long.

Friday Nights and Saturday Sparks

You don't want to know that there are times when i talk to the bottle before downing it. There are times when I watch them mix the poison for me and beg it to be the one that finally finishes me off. That there are times when all I want is to be carried away in the smoke with the rest if the perfectly baked ash. You didn't want to know that so I waited until you were asleep to say anything even remotely close to this.

In This Box

Everything I say is everything you've already heard before. Nothing left in this world is creative except everything in your beautifully strange mind.

One More Night Together

Heartbeats growing faster,
hands intertwine, breaths linger,
it's only a dream.

Just Keep Flying

Don't you know that you're the kind of friend that is remembered forever and always. The kind of friend to forgive without forgetting. One of those artist types whos works tattoo your heart even from the grave.

Waiting for the Camera's Flash

Until you learn that living is about more than breathing. Until you know that smiling does not mean you are happy. Until you know love is more than sex.

Do not tell me this is the end.

Forever Yours

You are...

Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful.

"I wish I were Beautiful," whispered the butterfly to the Rose.

"But you already ARE," answered the rose once the butterfly had flown away.

Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful.

We all are Beautiful.

Say Cheese

This morning someone wanted to take my picture 
for the school news paper and my friends 
couldn't understand why I let them. 
So I smiled,

"Well whenever people tell me to smile for the camera 
I just think of you. (Yes you, the person reading this 
right now.)

And people love to ask why other people always 
expect you to smile in photographs. And I tell them 
it is because we hope that in the future this is 
something to smile about. 

So I don't understand why you won't smile for me. 
Its so much more wonderful and worthwhile when you do."

Oh and by the way, I love your smile
so much.

Single Spark

You can smile without hope. Living without hope is an entirely different matter.
Thank you for reminding me.

Glass Snow Falls Beautifully

Sometimes it amazes me that we end up like this so often. I don't mean to complain. (I love every second I have with you). I just wish I were something a little more special than your unnamed emergency hotline for dark thoughts and destructive ideas.

Hearts and Flames

If nothing else, I need you to remember that love is always good enough of a reason to stay.

Flames vs. Moths

I know you rarely listen to me but before you go flying to the sun, the trap has killed so many of your kind I would like you to hear me out. Please. The flames may look beautiful and they may be wonderful treasures in store for you. But if not you are dying for nothing and so far at this point you have yet to live for anything either. If a kiss is just a kiss all of you die for nothing anyway. But if there’s passion, love, or hope you have so much in store for yourself. Please, please, just don’t throw that all away so easily.

Marbled, Shattered, Beautiful Mosaics

Everything you do is completely random to you, but I have found your patterns. Each time I see you, you get even more beautiful than you were before.

Learning to Fly

When you say those three words (I love you) you are also saying "Every time you leave I miss you. I hope you miss me too." And by saying that you give someone the power and permission to shatter every piece of you to smithereens. But, Darling, I have broken people before and I refuse to do it to anyone else. Especially you.

I love you.

I miss you.

I will be home soon.

Pennies For a Poet's Thoughts

Do you really want my honest answer? Are you sure? Well, first you need to be warned that these words will never apply to you and they will always apply to you. Before I explain what I am thinking right now, I need you to know I love you, I only ever want the very best for you, even when I seem just a tiny but too harsh. Really, I cannot tell you until you understand that even every word used to describe the glory of their so called "God" will never do you the justice I not only believe but whole heartedly know without a shadow of a doubt that you deserve. Darling, you asked me what is traveling through my mind right this moment, but I have already thoroughly briefed you on the weather, you already know where you are in my heart, and still you wonder where my thoughts might be at any moment?

This is precisely why I love you even half as much as I do. Thank you for making me smile every chance you get. You are in my every thought.
