love is energy,
constantly moving, changing.
i couldn’t keep up.
the pace is perfect.
love is patient and love is kind.
love is sweet.
love is me.
maybe if i write it here then it will be true.
maybe i should disappear,
maybe it’s not you.
i sometimes hold myself too accountable,
make myself too accessible.
but this is my nature.
to be punished for your own nature
is a pain like no other.
to be misunderstood would come first,
if they weren’t the same thing.
i’ll write it here for you to see,
here for you to never read.
maybe it’s me.
pink pastels and all the pastels
the dreams are vivid
now I see
disco dreams with an hour in between
under peach skies,
I remember him
the one who found my smile
wondering what’s next
and sometimes thinking of you
your energy, my fuel
This isn’t the first time and it won’t be the last.
Moving slow, peering through the glass.
He says he doesn’t know me
but I’ve seen his soul.
Alleyways, stair wells
I know what he knows.
A life of darkness without me, the sun.
Being as complex as Jupiter, knowing when to run.
This isn’t the first time and It won’t be the last.
Moving slow, peering through the glass.
Visions of an all too realistic 4th avenue
Rainy, yet no thunder
Society hides the sun
as I’m still evolving.
Spilling from the sky, sleeping on the sidewalk
makes me wonder how I keep from going under,
makes me dream about so much more.
Up walks my love when the rain is at its worst.
The sun left before but losing you is worse.
They’ve clouded your divinity.
and I’m the one that hurts.
Imagine being a pure Pisces on May 11th of 2015.
Blue Icees and sometimes blue me.
An empress and a butterfly
in a world that fears magic.
A curious collection of stars,
The colors on the ground,
scattered, mixed with brown.
I sit with swirls of yellow and orange towering over me.
A cold that I can’t feel.
I look away and there’s loss.
Now it’s cold and now I know.
I’m aware that there is a lack
and I’m familiar with loss.
All too familiar with loss.
Loss of yellow,
loss of orange,
and even green.
I look up.
Blue, purple, red, and pink, all still here.
You only call me Space Babe
when you can’t wait to disappear.
I need it this time, love.
Stay where you are.
I mean it this time, love.
I saw God’s hand come from the sky
and now I’m lonely,
A gift, a curse.
I once used a telescope to cope
with the fact that you’re so cold and
I do miss when Pluto was a planet.
An angel told me this time would be different
and the old me disappeared.
It’s been years.
He can call me Space Babe
from wise and affectionate lips.
Real and endless.
This is space.
I’m surely drowning
when I’m asked what’s on my mind.
I decline out of fear you won’t understand
and just like that
That’s all I needed to hear.
I’m here but I’m not
and sometimes I’m all I’ve got.
You don’t know why you were born in March
or why your Mom never asks you to come home.
You can still fade away.
I dreamt of my 22nd birthday
almost as an escape.
Now I’m flying.
I always wake up at this time
The tables always turn
once the lesson is learned.
I left on a Thursday
with violet on my lips
after realizing that last night’s dreams
could be every night’s dream.
I am immersed then suddenly free.
Never again will you see me
in such a light.
A star now and forever,
I’m awake as
a fresh day looms.
I think of home.
Think of crispy, fall air.
So this is the city without you.
when it’s not your season.
You broke me and I
missed you all the way.
I’m downtown in a red dress
thinking of my first love when my last one happens to walk by.
I’m sure you know beauty
when you are beauty.
It’s okay to rely on the moon.
Pink nails remind me I’m still alive.
I’m told to wear blue on a day
where vibes weren’t matching up.
I’m here to explore.
Green like money,
a tool and nothing more.
A girl from Russia lives differently
and that is our connection.
A silent, but strong presence
Yellow is ignored.
I remember being surrounded by painted, yellow walls
and not saying a word.
on a day I felt completely transparent,
A mystic angel kept pulling ‘justice’
long after it was just us.
That’s all I needed to see.
It rains and I let it.
I become emotion, shapes.
I am purple by the time
I realize the moon is late.
She is beautiful like I desire to be.
Her cheeks turn rosy over the ‘lovers’ card.
A black, dreamy, space diva.
