Poem #35: In Verona, I Whisper to the Sky

At the very least, I know
that I loved you truly,
deeply,
desperately,
for all time.

You know that too.

At most, I know
that I will never be truly,
deeply,
desperately
yours.

I also know
that you’ll never be truly,
deeply,
desperately
mine.

You know that too.

Is this what star-crossed lovers are?

Poem #34: A List of Things We are Not

Strangers who cross paths often in the same social circles
Acquaintances upon the introduction of a common friend
Friends after hanging out for a while
Good friends through “thick and thin, until the end”
Probably something a bit more than friends
Two people who hold hands
Two people who like spending a lot of time together
Two people no one understands
Two people who argue and make up on the same day
Two people who finally embrace
Two people who hold each other too close for comfort
Two people who make each other’s heart race
Two people who keep secrets from the world but not each other
Two people who kiss lightly
Two people society doesn’t accept
Two people who let go and kiss passionately
Two people who lie together
Two people who look at stars
Two people who get bashed for love
Two people who wish they could be in Mars
Two people who kiss goodnight
Two people who see each other at dawn
Two happy people
Two people the world doesn’t own
Two people other people hated
Two people living in a crazy stupid world
Two sad people
Two angry people
Two people whose love is bashed
Two people arguing in a car
Two people whose car has crashed

In this limbo, there are no need for labels.

Tumblr Poem #8: When You Walked In and Out

When You Walked In and Out, a poem

Inspired by Taylor Swift’s monologue in “I Knew You Were Trouble”: “I think when it’s all over, it just comes back in flashes, you know. It’s like a kaleidoscope of memories. It just all comes back, but he never does. I think part of me knew the second I saw him that this would happen. It’s not really anything he said or anything he did. It was the feeling that came along with it. And the crazy thing is I don’t know if I’m ever gonna feel that way again. But I don’t know if I should. I knew his world moved too fast and burned too bright, but I just thought how can the devil be pulling me towards someone who looks so much like an angel when he smiles at you? Maybe he knew that when he saw me. I guess I just lost my balance. I think that the worst part of it all wasn’t losing him. It was losing me.”
