The Great Wall of China

If you want to understand it you've got to see what it's like to crumble then rebuild it. Make it something remarkable.

It Needed to be Said

It doesn't take the world to make me love you, just the fact that you're here with me through it all. Thank you for always being my biggest fan.

Sorry it took me so long to get around to letting you know.

Teenage Angst

Just so you know, my habits may seem a little off-putting and at times maybe even disgusting. But I am merely a snake shedding my skin so I no longer have to taste the lie covered lips that first introduced me to that thing you call a "kiss". And I let myself bleed whenever possible because it is the only remotely safe way to expel all the poisons from the negative energies that so easily find their way to me each and every single goddamn day. Oh and should you ever walk in to find me drowning myself in ink, cold coffee, and rum don't worry. I'll be perfectly sober in the morning, my thoughts just have a way of running away at night. Just so you know, I am perfectly sane and safe enough to love.

I'm just not stable.

Not Perfect, Not Alone

Stockings filled with memories and photographs and a few scattered cards may have been the only things under the tree this year. But at least you were around it with people who love you enough to laugh with you anyway.

Because we Have To

At least this way we have a chance at running into some snow. Even if that means in no way that we'll be happy to see you.

Neccesary Knowledge

I never lied to you, you know, I meant it every time I said it. I loved you in each and every one of those moments. So completely, so freely. 

Even Blissfully.

True Stories, Yo

It has gotten late, but these are the moments you will remember most. So take my hand and together we will find ourselves in the midst of learning each other's particularities.

Diamonds in the Rough

Someday someone will come along and see nothing more than how brightly you shine.

Little to no Shiny Wrapping

Not everyone is going to have a traditional holiday this year, but I hope you enjoy your celebrations anyway.

Because at least you'll be with people you love.

Daily Routines

And as you lose your face in the mirror tracing thoughts of everyone you still have time to be, deciding how you will present yourself today we hope you can find a clear and passionate desire to stay as true to your honest self as possible. Even if we have yet to meet this side we (okay, I) will continue to love you with every drop of purity in the world and every ounce of wonder from all of time and history.

Moving So Fast

Don't blame me for neglecting to put my life on hold while you decided all the things you did not want and nothing you did. I have to live for myself, and you do too.

Left Turns Only

Fate so cruel in her wicked ways what makes her so important in the grand scheme of things anyway? Threads unraveling, paths unclear, what you've done, I don't know, but this is so much more than real.

Clipped Wings and Short Legs

The sky may look different wherever you are now than it does here where I am. But it's the only thing we'll ever truly have in common so I hope that whenever you miss me or you feel alone that you're able to look up and know I'm with you.

And if you can't then may you at least see the beauty of your soul smiling back at you from among the clouds and stars.

For the person who took this photograph.

To Soar Onward

Go ahead and conquer your fears, nothing good will ever come of limiting yourself.

Something New

I want you to give me white roses
that kind that are pure as snow -
just beginning to bloom with hopes
and unbroken promises galore.

When they are young I'll smell them
every morning and water them at noon -
I want to press the petals between
pulp and ink just before the brown
starts to appear. White roses please.

Next time you're looking for a way
to bring a little more cheer to the day -
trying to replicate the sun and make
me feel at home, remember that
white roses will do the trick.

Look for the ones (or one) that
screams: "I love you" and still
embodies a new born ghost -
find the ones that make you think

"The whole world
is at our fingertips."

Left a Few Scratches

Just know, even after everything, I'll remember you fondly. Because you met me before I was able to understand the meaning of being fragile.

That being said, your TTGF and her family wish you both happy holidays and a great birthday!

Did you ever notice the unparalleled perfection in my poems from the moments in your arms?
If you can keep a secret I'll tell you that you're more than a muse.

You're my reason.

Bountiful Blossom

My darling little flower, you always did stand on center stage and shock everyone in the audience. You were a lovely little daisy, with powers so completely unlike any other that you were the new standard for all others to come. Conditions, no matter how awful could never deter your faith or make you any less stunning than you already were. I don't understand how you did it, but i am so glad you did.

Frog Girl's Eighteenth

Maybe you've still got a few months til you take can hop, but you've been getting used to your gills for a while now too. So I really can't wait to see what's to come from you and all the opportunities ahead.

Today's about you and I hope you feel loved and supported among the celebration.

Walking While Broken

Understand me when I say this, because there’s only so much energy I have with which to explain so much. I don’t know what I’m doing here or how the hell I’m going to survive this. I don’t think I know where I am or how to find my way back home again. More than likely you are going to see me wandering the streets of this too big, wannabe city; just ignore the tears rattling and the blood dripping down my face and body. And please listen with every ounce of focus you have because I’ve finally cracked and I need help.

Oh, and darling, I don’t know if you’ll believe this or not, but I do need you. I need you to keep your promise of staying here.

Don’t leave me.

Wallflowers and Populars Alike

Sometimes it’s easier to grow up knowing who or what you care about than it is to grow up already knowing who you are. and it really can be those slight differences in  awareness that shape our futures into the stories we’ll tell with our final few hundred words.

To All the "Big Sisters"

I never thought I would miss you nearly as much as I do, especially since I envied every move you made and how perfectly it all seemed to go. Anyway, I just want you to know, I'm still here should you ever need me - 'cause it's been a while since I've heard from you.

Runaway Artist

Everyone laughs at me for drawing a rose on your nose with your parents right behind me. They call me crazy for writing poetry on your arms in my dreams. No one believes that I'll ever make it anywhere if I am impulsive and my work is washable. But your chest is perfect for whipped cream portraits and your tongue is the most comforting pen I've ever known. Everyone laughs. They call me crazy. No one believes that I'll ever make it. So just you watch with love on my side and ink in my veins I can do anything.

Sweetly Fading Images

Is she a being of light only ever renewed by exploding stars and space that never actually ends. If she's a being of light what are you?

Just so you know, I'm okay with being forgotten.

But you will always be remembered.

Shaded Grays

There will be times where change is just as necessary as breathing.
