His laughter is a song I could never grow tired of listening to

I can only fall asleep in utter darkness

But his smile lights up any room he steps foot in

And I don’t mind sleeping next to him

He’s a sunny day with a summer breeze

I’ve never loved anyone more than when he’s laying in my arms, head on my chest

Falling asleep to the beat of my heart

Waking up with a boyish look trying to remember where he fell asleep

I don’t want to lose this

But everything comes to an end someday

We all grow up and everyone can see how much we still have to do so

If we lose it

Remember us happy

Remember our laughter tangling up in each other

Remember our naïvity

Forget the weight of a world we didn’t ask for on our shoulders

Forget the world’s chaos while my fingers were caught in yours

But if my name somehow forgets the taste of your lips

If it gets lost in the waves of the past

Look up at the starry night sky

Up at the moon

Remember me there

Dance with Me

We change with the seasons

Yet I can’t bleach you off my mind

Fall – ironically I fell for you

Every time I smell the perfume I wore in that moment

I feel as if I’ve taken a trip in time

Back to high school gym class

Winter – I pulled you closer to warm myself back up

The snow and the emptiness haunting my bones don’t mix well

Spring – you weren’t afraid to hold my hand and dance in the rain with me

I never felt so alive

I never felt so in love with anyone

Summer – we continued to dance together in the rain

We were goofy, we were kind

And your house always smelled like laundry

Every time I catch a whiff of laundry now it rockets me back into your arms

Fall – I think this is when we fell away from each other

I don’t like to remember how it hurt

The entire future I dreamt of us disappeared

 

The spring rains have returned again

It feels like monsoons without you here

The rain whispers your name with every drop

Come dance with me again

The Butterfly with the Ripped Wing

A girl who floats through time and space without noticing she exists is not one to intertwine yourself with

She has complications tangled in a net you cannot see until you yourself are tangled up in it

Her heart is still as free as a 5-year-old walking through puddles to clean off her muddy feet as her wet hair dangles and her knees are scraped and dirty

You cannot bring her to reality, for she has created her own

She has a complex history that can’t be undone.But god her smile fills your bones with honey and your heart with bees

Smiles that dance upon her cherry blossom lips make you wish all of the air didn’t leave your lungs moments before

Watching her eyes glitter as her fingers drum on her desk while she seems lost in the valleys of her mind

Don’t tell me you’re not in love

You imagine calming her down when tears bubble and spill out of her eyes every night

In a world where you are her savior and the blistering, healing wounds have all faded away

Every night as you fall asleep you hug a pillow tightly pretending it is her in your arms

You have memorized the scent she wears every day

When you’re away from her too long you begin to smell it in hopes that she will show up where you are

Her skin holds secrets written between freckles that you so badly want to know

Each weird thing she does without thinking about

Wear a hair elastic on her wrist

Keep her nails short

Doesn’t cover up the light freckles dotting her rosy pink nose

You want the look of confusion when she wakes up to her alarm every morning

But you know better

A curious heart leads to a million different pieces in the end

Sometimes you need to let your heart lead
